    Yes, I remember it well- Stephanie Powers in her pre-'Hart To Hart' days. Wasn't Jim Rockford meant to be an ex-con turned good, who was using his old inside knowledge of the criminal underworld to help fight crime? Actually, I was too little to follow the show when it was on- all I remember s the opening which had his answerphone message playing to an empty living room, then cut to him speeding along the American freeway to a pretty snappy electric theme tune.
