Episode 1 - He Says It In Episode 1

Hello everyone and welcome to our new podcast!  He's Steve Cloutier and I'm Dave Brodbeck.  We're both really into TV (we watched Mad Men and recorded our analysis and such about that show in another podcast) and we both have projects with others that we do as well (listen to the end of the episode to get a list).

We're now taking on 'The Rockford Files' which is a favourite of both of ours, from our childhoods.  That's with good reason by the way, this is one of the most important action/PI shows in the history of TV.

Today begin this, well, multi year, journey with Jimbo, Angel, Rocky, Beth, a ton of high profile guest stars, oh and me and Steve.  We're starting with the pilot of the series, which is often split into two on DVD sets and syndication.

The podcast will grow and change and morph as things go on.  There will be some constants.  James Garner's humanity, cool driving, the 1970s and Angel.

We're also going to give you a little bit of historical context about the time.  For example, when the pilot aired it was days after the end of the OPEC oil embargo.
