Toward the end of this movie Jesse Stone looks at his wrist watch. It's a close up shot and he's wearing a silver Rolex. The circumference of the watch is half red and half blue, with even numbers displayed 2 through 24. It's the same watch Tom Selleck wore in Magnum P.I. that originally belonged to his characters father. It can be seen in great detail in the fourth season episode "Home from the Sea" and throughout the Magnum seasons. See more »
When Officer D'Angelo is driving Chief Butler, before the explosion, you can briefly see a 70 mph speed limit sign. There are no posted 70 mph speed limits on Massachussetts rural roads. It's a Canadian 70 kilometer per hour (43.50 mph) sign. See more »
Why do I always end up feeling conned & duped after watching a Jesse Stone episode? I go in full of high expectations, like going into a first rate restaurant: terrific menu, great atmosphere, beautiful surroundings. And then...little bitty tastes & teasers.
I've always been a fan of Tom Selleck. He's a great-looking guy with a wry sense of humor & he's aged well (although I would gently suggest he have his hairdresser lighten up on the dense blacks - looks too phony). But he spends most of his time in this episode (& the last one as I recall) standing around doing a lot of thinking & brooding & posing.
Selleck wears clothes better than any actor since Gary Cooper & he has some pretty snazzy outdoorsy threads in this one. But I wound up feeling like I was watching an elaborate Eddie Bauer commercial.
As for the plot...what plot? Pieces of plots. Pieces of characterizations. Snatches of dialog. In the end there were so many plot pieces left hanging & unexplained it I thought this episode might be half of a 2-parter. But as far as I can tell from IMDb this is a one-shot.
So what's going on? A new mystery genre? You give viewers a few pieces of the puzzle & let them fill in the blanks?
Come on, Tom, your fans & followers deserve a whole lot better. We know you can do it, that's why we keep coming back.
