Possibly my favorite Magnum episode ever.

WGN broadcast part 1 yesterday and part 2 today.

The ending is just so poetic. First time I've ever seen the good guy do what was so right when it was also wrong. But needed to be done. It was so hardcore.

The series ending finale wasn't too bad either.

I need to get them on DVD now. Between guns and movies, I stay broke all the time.

Here is the feline translation of that episode of Magnum P.I.



(his name really is Ivan...)

Slug-O,

I think that was the episode where Mac was killed. The episode that rtech brings up was the one where Magnum kills the Russian who worked as intelligence/torturer for the VC and NVA. Magnum tracks him down on the island and kills him in cold blood.

One of my favorite episodes.

That was one of my favorites.

I also liked the one where Magnum shoots the Chinese martial arts guy in the face when he blinked. Remember that? He blinks before he strikes (and his strikes are deadly).

Apparently, cat #2 is ready for dinner when cat #1 gets dispatched by the big bore.

Actually, you both are correct. Part 1 is where Mac has to stay with Thomas for a while. He is secretly undercover working for COL Buck trying to smoke out Ivan. Mac buys it when the Ferrari explodes from a boobytrap. Magnum feels guilty about it for a very long time.

An old VN friend of Magnum, TC and Rick's show up saying Ivan is trying to kill him. TC hides out in the woods with him, but secretly is working for the Russians and causes a flashback in TC to kill some dignitaries.

Part 2 is the plan to kill off high ranking dignitaries - US mil. Magnum and Rick foil the attempt.
The Dept of State refuses to prosecute Ivan, reports him as another foreign diplo-dunk and PNG's him. Thomas refuses to accept that, surveils him, ambush, secluded place, then - Ivan? BANG!

Great episode. Wouldn't have changed a thing.

It's been a long time since I've seen that episode, and I only have Season 1 on DVD.

How did Magnum get away with it?

That is one aspect of that show that I have always considered. Thomas killed a lot of people, yet they never showed him going to trial, hiring a lawyer, etc.

Perhaps Robin Masters aka Higgins took care of shit for him.

I saw that episode when I was about 12 years old, and when I read the title of the thread I knew exactly what it was about. It definately stuck with me, TV perfection
