The Rockford Files - First-Ever Blu-ray Release (plus a DVD Re-Release) for 'The Complete Series'

Both formats, coming to stores two weeks apart, this June from MCE

Posted by David Lambert
    "Hello, this is Jim Rockford. At the tone, leave your name and message. I'll get back to you." {beep}

    For only "two hundred dollars a day, plus expenses," the original and quintessential anti-hero detective, Jim Rockford, is on the case! Primetime Emmy Award-winner James Garner stars as the ex-con-turned-private-investigator who stays under the radar and takes on the cases of the lost and the dispossessed, chasing down seemingly long-dead clues in the sunbaked streets and seamy alleys of Los Angeles.

    And now, all 120 episodes from its six seasons 22-disc anthology! Filled with wry humor, chilling suspense, and engaging cases, it's no mystery why The Rockford Files remains the most celebrated detective show of its time. Notable Cast/Crew: James Garner, Noah Beery, Stuart Margolin, Dyan Cannon. Winner of 5 Emmy Awards and 13 additional Emmy-nominations. Also received 4 Golden Globe nominations including Best Actor and Best Drama Series.
In 2015, for a $239.88 list price, a DVD set for The Rockford Files - The Complete Collection was released on DVD. These days you can get that DVD set for around a hundred bucks...but only while supplies last, as that studio took it out of print a while back!

Now Mill Creek Entertainment is returning the DVDs to store shelves on June 13th, as "The Rockford Files - The Complete Series," for $69.98 SRP. This 22-disc set will have all 6 seasons and their episodes, together for fans who missed out getting on the original Complete release (or the individual season sets).

Also available for the first time will be a Blu-ray Disc release of The Rockford Files - The Complete Series, with the entire series remastered into High Definition! Also 22 discs, this will be priced a bit higher, at $129.98 SRP. And Mill Creek tells us that they want to make sure they have enough time to manufacture enough Blu copies of the title for fans who want it, so they're having this format hit the streets a couple of weeks later, on June 27th.

Fans will, of course, wonder if the eight Rockford Files TV movies will be included with this set. Sorry, they won't. Mill Creek tells us that their licensing agreement with Universal didn't include the telefilms; just the episodes of the main TV series. They don't anticipate that situation changing, either, so if you're a passionate fan who wants the TV movies for the show on DVD (and don't already have them), it's best to hurry up and buy the old DVDs with those on them, while they're still available at a good price.

In the meantime, Mill Creek's new releases of The Rockford Files - The Complete Series on DVD and Blu-ray Disc formats are available to pre-order at, using the button link immediately below. Just under that is the package art for both versions. Check 'em out:
