Avatar 7:15pm dale:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:18pm melinda:

My dad liked to watch Rockford and I remember getting excited hearing the theme coming from the living room. I probably tried to watch and it was over my head.

Speaking of Hardcore, there was a storyline in the last season of The Deuce that seemed to play off that premise.
