Reviews of the The Rockford Files Quickie NirvanaAs I go through the entire series in chronological order I really appreciate the couple of reviewers who have commented on most every episode. Most of what needs to be said gets said in those reviews, but sometimes an episode has some unique quality that I am compelled to comment on further... and this is one of those episodes. It is actually quite educational to take a retrospective look at this episode's point of view regarding the new age spiritual movement taking place in the 60s and 70's.
I would like to politely disagree with the reviewer who stated (in an otherwise strong review) "I especially enjoyed the exchange because I believe the writers were fair and respectful to both sides of the debate".
No. The episode totally made fun of the entire new age spiritual movement. Period. Rockford cuts to shreds every statement, platitude, spiritual philosophy and belief that comes out of Sky. As to whether the writers actually were trying to make a statement criticizing the new age movement, or simply couldn't resist using new age as the perfect grist for Rockford's always pragmatic mill, I cannot say. However, I trust writer David Chase, and regardless of what his personal points of view may be on such matters, he created a very poignant story that stands up even today. Perhaps especially today. If you stay away from being offended by Chase's searing indictment of the new age movement you will be quite entertained... and perhaps be given something to think about.
Again, setting aside the merits of Krishna / sensory deprivation tanks Buddhism / karma / vegetarianism / non-violence / cults ET. AL. ... this episode documents how so many people picking up on the new age movement of that time somehow got it wrong. Whatever the movement started out to be... along the way it got tuned into something else. And those that came along who were so lost and/or desperate to latch on to a higher truth (who could blame them for looking?), that rather than question and test the validity of what was coming at them they instead surrendered themselves to what they were told by the local guru. And Sky personifies the consequences of that kind of blind faith.
Jonie Mitchell commented on this phenomenon in a song from her 1972 album, 'For The Roses', entitled 'Woman Of Heart And Mind':
"All this talk about holiness now It must be the start of the latest style Is it all books and words Or do you really feel it? Do you really laugh? Do you really care? Do you really smile When you smile?"
A contemporary 'guru', who claims not that title, but who does demonstrate advanced consciousness, refers to the trap of taking a spiritual precept and bending it to fit the person's innately selfish instincts as "spiritual ego" (author Dr. Davide R. Hawkins). It is a huge trap indeed, and most all organized religions long ago fell into it.
Wow. Who would have thought the Rockford Files could be fodder for examining the meta-physical?
