Nice noir homage
29 May 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Magnum wakes in in 1936 and at first believes Higgins is playing an elaborate joke but decides he is in a dream and might as well enjoy it. He gets involved in a murder decides to make the most of it. T.C. is an auto mechanic as "coloreds" aren't allowed to be pilots. Higgins is still a majordomo but has had to adjust to the depression by organizing croquet as polo is considered a ostentatious display of wealth. Rick is still managing the club but now sports a mustache. Anne Lochart is the damsel in distress with a father falsely accused of murder. There are plenty of jokes playing off the time change such as Magnum warning a suspect to go easy on the smoking as it turns out it is bad for your health. A good episode to watch while having a cigar and a scotch.
