When Magnum's pushed . . .
20 April 2016 | by Mr-FusionSee all my reviews

In the episodes I've seen up to this point, the show has been walking the line between the main character's beach bum charms and the darkness of his past. 'Did You See the Sun Rise?' falls completely in the latter category. Elements from Magnum's (and T.C.'s) past come screaming back to throw their lives into chaos. Everyone from the Navy to a vengeful Russian is involved, and it's all a painful reminder that, despite the car and the island life, Magnum was once (still is?) a hardened killer. Seriously, don't eff with Magnum's friends.

This episode goes to some surprisingly dark lengths, and part of the reason why it's one of the best (at least of those that I've seen) is that freeze frame ending. Now I get the reference used on "Archer" several years back, but I'm glad to have finally seen this.

Haunting stuff.

9/10
