"The Rockford Files" was TV series that aired on NBC from 1974 to 1980 starring James Garner. The premise was "James Rockford", a private investigator that lived in a mobile home by the beach in Malibu, solved crimes and saved the day in hour or less every week. I've seen it in reruns and it has always been a fun show. They tried to reboot it as a TV series in last year with Dermot Mulroney in the starring role. Rumor was it was so terrible that no one has ever seen it. I actually think Vaughn will make a great Rockford. Here's the theme song from the original series for some nostalgia.
