In this film, Jesse explains to Officer Luther Simpson why he calls him "Suitcase." He said he calls him that after Harry "Suitcase" Simpson, a baseball player who "traveled a lot." Luther replies, "But I've lived here all my life." And Jesse says, "I don't know. It just seemed to fit." (And of course, the officer and ball player share a last name.) See more »

Tom Selleck was great as Magnum and is more appealing than ever as Jesse Stone. The two TV-movies made so far with this character have been top-notch in story, characters and mood--very watchable and enjoyable. I believe they've done gangbusters in ratings, too, so let's hope there are more of these to come. Stone is a wonderful character and so far he's had great casting and good writing to back him up. The Stone character is the creation of mystery writer Robert B. Parker. I haven't read the novels, but Parker himself has been interviewed and he had nothing but great things to say about Selleck's performance and how well he nailed the character, who's tough, ironic, smart, wry, funny. Also enjoyed the production values, moody atmosphere and Vancouver (I think) settings, not to mention a couple of very pretty, well-cast ladies. More, more!
