  • Quite simply I thought this was a great episode mainly featuring one of the many excellent co stars.

    What makes a great series, one that can last 6 or 7 series, is the depth of characters in the show. If it was just about Rockford then I don\'t think this would have lasted (albeit he\'s a great character) Angel, Beth, Cooper all make this one of the best series to have been on TV.

    Most episodes of other shows don\'t work if the main character isn\'t involved in the plot. This one does.

    Excellent, one of my favourite episodes.
