Will the real Robin Masters please stand up.
1 July 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Magnum sneaks into the estate's computer control room to play a game he borrowed from TC but when he is interrupted by Higgins, Magnum accidentally erases part of Higgins' massive autobiography from the hard drive. Infuriated, Higgins takes his Ferrari away from Magnum; but isn't that supposed to be Robin Masters' Ferrari? Because Magnum needs the Ferrari, he hot wires it and finds himself arrested after Higgins reports the car stolen. To retaliate, Magnum then cuts down Higgins' prized night blooming plant just before an important flower show. In turn Magnum discovers Godfather style that his beloved rubber chicken has been beheaded and left in his bed. While this one up-manship continues there is an attempt to kill both Higgins and Magnum but that plot line is unimportant as we wonder which will have the final word in this family war and will Higgins be unmasked as the real Robin Masters.
