The Rockford Files was an American television crime drama series that ran on NBC for six seasons and 122 episodes.  There were also eight television movies made.  The series aired from September 13th, 1974 to January 10th, 1980, and set in Los Angeles, California. The program follows the investigations of Jim Rockford, the chief operative of the Rockford Private Detective Agency , as he attempts to solve criminal cases that are considered unsolvable and labeled inactive by police.

The Rockford Files starred James Garner, who played, Jim Rockford, a Los Angeles private investigator.  He lived and worked at Paradise Cove in Malibu, California in a trailer.  He was an ex-con who spent five years in San Quentin prison for armed robbery.  However, it was later determined he never committed the crime and was set free.  Each episode revolved around a case he takes on that always seems to have a twist, being more dangerous then he originally anticipates.  He is a very cautious man and makes choices and decisions wisely.  He is often assisted in solving a case with his father, Rocky, by his side.
