Very good, Magnum-san, very good!
21 April 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Magnum gets a crash course this week in the mystifyingly black-and-white Japanese culture when he's joined by an honest-to-god Samurai (Mako) who's dead set on recovering a stolen piece of art. This one's cool because it shows what makes the warrior tick, what drives him and how it can utterly stymie a Westerner like Magnum that a man could so easily take his own life for failing to protect a porcelain plate. But the two develop a mutual appreciation over the course of this case, and we get an honest portrayal of the warrior mindset.

Also, I just realized James "The Muppet Movie" Frawley directed this.

That's awesome.

7/10
