4: A Blessing in Disguise
"A Blessing in Disguise" proved very entertaining, with James Garner reprising his droll "Jim Rockford" character from the "Rockford Files" series. Mr. Garner has definite chemistry with Renee O'Connor, later of "Xena: Warrior Princess" fame. Here, O'Connor does a fine job as a plucky, self-centered-but-likable actress whose life is threatened by religious zealots. But all is not what it seems -- and Rockford aims to get to the bottom of it to keep his client/friend alive. The Garner-O'Connor relationship has a special "father-daughter" charm. While the plot seems a bit far-fetched, there are cute send-ups of the Hollywood celebrity scene and Televangelists who scam their viewers. Listen especially for O'Connor's character's remarks about bodyguards and a certain famous Hollywood TV starlet. Worth a chuckle.
