Watch worn by Jesse Stone is the same watch Thomas Magnum wore in Seasons 4-8. See more »
(at around 1 min) Jesse Stone and Rose Gammon are seated on opposite sides of a picnic table, talking to each other with the camera cutting back and forth between them: reaction shots. At about 28:00 you can see a couple walking right to left behind Jesse's shoulder. The shot shifts to Rose for her lines, then back to Jesse. At that point, the same couple is shown walking in the same direction, but *further back* than they were what is supposed to be a few seconds later. See more »
It has been a long time since I watched a series with such a delight. The Jesse Stone series is surely going into TV-History. It is beyond time and will be watchable even in 50 years from now. Tom Selleck is an icon of the 80's, but I'm sure he will be remembered for these wonderful movies. Tom is playing with minimalism, but every word, look, and breath is telling more than any short handed written hip cop series can say.
The pictures and the music are leading you into the small town world perfectly. If you are open for it, you can dive in and follow.
Even from an European perspective I can tell, that America can be proud of such a quality TV-work.
