Trivia

William Holden is in the two films, both of which are set during World War II, that are mentioned in the episode. In "Stalag 17," he plays Sgt. J.J. Sefton, and in "The Bridge On The River Kwai," he plays Commander Shears. See more »

Goofs

The 'rocket pods' on the H-6 T.C. steals from the Marines wouldn't work. Not only are the fins deployed (the fins on military rockets deploy after firing) but instead of being in pods the rockets are seemingly held together by a wire frame so if T.C. actually attempted to fire them either the whole pod would come off or they would immediately explode.

Pitch perfect; perhaps the definitive "Magnum" tale
12 November 2018 | by DVD_ConnoisseurSee all my reviews

"Did You See..." is the feature length episode that kicks off Season 3 with a bang. Written by Donald P. Bellisario, this is an extremely well executed television movie.

From the beginning, there's a sombre air over the proceedings; a feeling of nightmarish unease that soon becomes a reality.

Gritty, uncomfortable and uncompromising for a peak-time television show, this is a classic episode and fan favourite. Once seen, this is never forgotten.

Bo Svenson plays the ultimate Magnum bad guy, the psychotic Ivan.

10 out of 10. Just brilliant. After two seasons, this story demonstrated that the series had only just found its feet.
