Did You Know?


Just after Higgins is shot, Magnum realizes that Dr Kessler knew that Lena was staying at Robin's Nest as he was part of the conversation held earlier at the hospital, but he didn't actually join Magnum & Rick until after they had the conversation about Lena staying at the nest so Kessler had no way of knowing she was there, therefore why would Magnum think to search his office and find evidence to prove Kessler was in on the plot to kidnap Saul.

The scripts improve, I hope.....
12 December 2007 | by (Hawaii) – See all my reviews

I should be a sucker for any of these episodes....I live in and love the state of Hawaii, I know the islands so well I can often pick out where the actual location is in this series or in my favorite, "Hawaii Five-0", I love film noir/forties private eye films, and so on.....but this episode is just ghastly.

The danger/plot revolves around the question of who's a Nazi & who's Jewish.....why it matters soooo much more than 30 years after Nuremberg is given short shrift, and why there are Jews and Nazis chasing each other around Hawaii, of all places, (a state that is about 3% Jewish)adds to the oddity. The acting is laughable, with the Saul character played sooo broadly that it is difficult not to laugh at times. There are attempts at humor, with a sushi delivery--"your wish for fish", but the episode has very little humor or credible drama.

Others will comment on the oddity of the premise....why Robin Masters needs BOTH Magnum and Higgins to "secure" a house to which he almost never comes, how the Magnum character survives since he rarely gets paid for his "cases", why Magnum is allowed to run up all sorts of miles on the boss's Ferrari, and more. This series hit the air just as "Hawaii Five-0" was dying, so the market was probably hot for another Hawaii based series.

The series has enough fans more enthusiastic than I to inspire me to advise skipping this episode and watching later ones....they will be better. The narration is a venerable and sonderful film noir device, and it gives better episodes than this a nice feel...

Too, the location filming is beautiful, especially to those of us, probably almost all of us, who love Hawaii, its perfect climate & its unrivaled natural beauty of beaches and mountains. But later/other episodes will display the breathtaking scenery along with a strong storyline....skip this one and watch those.
