The Rockford Files

Have just downloaded the first 25 episodes, gonna have a great weekend!


Quick fact. Jim Rockford's telephone number is 555-2368. The same number as the Ghostbusters.

That is all.

You'd be surprised how many American phones have the same number...

555-2368 is one of a relatively small series of numbers which has been agreed upon the various US regional phone companies for use in films/TV etc.

As I understnd it 555 is not a valid area code (so doesn't have any subscribers on it) - but is used by many operators for test numbers &c.

So to prevent movie geeks from phoning numbers which may be used for serious testing purposes on the off chance that they might get through to the 'real' Ghostbusters, there is an 'approved list' of numbers that can be used by directors for their films.

That show had a great theme tune.

Was also a reasonably different twist on the usual cliche-ridden American telly detective.

Rockford rocks!
