One of the best Magnum P.I. episodes
22 July 2019 | by grantssSee all my reviews

While being a great series, Magnum P.I. was generally quite formulaic. The crime mysteries were never that puzzling, you knew who the bad guys were and how things would pan out.

This episode, however, was different. For a start, it is set in Los Angeles and the change does it a world of good. I loved the Hawaiian scenery but moving the setting gives this a fresh new feel. Also, it makes it feel edgier: no more perfect paradise but something grittier.

The plot is consistent with this edgier feel: shadowy characters, unexplained happenings and you don't exactly know who the bad guys are.

Topping it all off, there's a large dose of romance, provided by the wonderful Dana Delany, making this a very engaging and emotional episode.

So well made it feels almost like film noir.
