Trivia Note!
10 June 2008 | by mnh747See all my reviews

For all of you Magnum PI fans out there, it's interesting to note that the second scene in this episode was shot at the mansion known as "Robin's Nest" in the Magnum series. This scene was taped in the mansion's front yard area, and filmed about 11 years prior to Magnum PI debuting on American television. I also found another interesting coincidence in this scene. When McGarrett first meets an acquaintance at the mansion, the acquaintance mentions that McGarrett was a retired naval intelligence officer turned cop. Thomas Magnum was a retired naval intelligence officer turned private investigator! I wonder if this really is a coincidence or an ode to Hawaii Five-O!
