USA is not Uruguay
30 July 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Here is the scoop: Israeli secret service hunts ex-Nazis. So far so good. But once they found a suspect, why don't they go to FBI and INS? Why this secret hunt, kidnapping, assault with syringes and finally, ahem, a vigilante murder? What if they would be wrong with their suspect? And to what end did they kidnapped the person anyway? USA extradites such people. Really! They would have helped and wrapped up the entire case. So what possible reason could be in this entire kidnapping scheme?

But wait, there is more! Let's just look at the entire character depiction. Rick and Thomas are both hugging and kissing the elderly pair, who was not even mentioned in any prior episode to explain such level of tender love and admiration, and to whom they basically merely deliver their dirty stuff for cleaning. Would you hug and love your laundry man? Is this really plausible?

It is most astonishing about this miserable episode and this pitifully written script, that so many people do not even realize just how many absurdities have been piled up atop of each other in this one. I think it's being called "suspension of disbelieve." Extraordinary, as Higgins could have said.

For me this episode clearly stands out as the "yellow lemon", not belonging, a blunder. It appeared to me that in the 80ties, in the climate created in Hollywood virtually every show just had to have at least one "nazi hunt" episode, and so Magnum was also "blessed" by one. Case made, now we can return to paradise and our favorite Private Investigator.
