A little while back, I recommending binging Columbo on the weekend. I do believe I mentioned I used to watch it on Netflix before it got removed from that platform. I also probably mentioned how, while I enjoy Columbo, it’s no Rockford Files. Well, much to my delight, it turns out The Rockford Files is also available, admittedly with commercial, on IMDb TV, which you can watch through Amazon Prime, and probably some other ways.
I wasn’t quite as enthused about finding Rockford available to stream as Columbo, but not because I think Peter Falk’s cop mystery show is the better of the two. No, it’s because I hadn’t gotten through all the Columbo episodes before Netflix got rid of it, but I had watched like 95 percent of the Rockford Files episodes. Of all those old ‘60s and ‘70s, and hell also ‘80s, procedurals, it’s my favorite. It’s also perfect binge-watching material, like any proper procedural.
