growing old
27 November 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

An old friend of Robins drops by literally,hitting Higgins on a beach landing.Obvious that Buck and Higgins don't get along.This is a great chance for Magnum to hit Higgins up for the tennis court,the wine cellar,and possibly half the Estate to babysit Buck.The only person that comes close to putting a handle on Buck is his estranged wife who happens to be visiting the island.His wife also knows Bucks secret.The secret is revealed during a phone call Buck makes.Buck is quite a character getting into mischief befitting a youthful teen discovering his abilities as well as inabilities.Anyway this is a story about a middle aged man growing old,not so gracefully.Creating unique problems for Magnum and the gang.
