Did anyone else notice the other (albeit very minor) Australian element that was added to this episode? (i.e. besides the valley girl’s reference to INXS). There’s one scene where TC is using a boomerang to point to a specific location on a map! (maybe there was an Aussie working on the set decorating team… :lol: )

LOL! :lol:

I'm guessing T.C. doesn't have to point to maps all that often, so he just grabbed the first thing lying around. :P

From the Episode Guide... "The Region 1 DVD version of this episode inexplicably omits a one-minute foot chase scene. The scene occurs just after Magnum is shot at by two uzi-toting henchmen. After his rental car is blown up, Magnum runs through several backyards to escape. In one of the backyards, Magnum encounters Playboy "Playmate of the Month" Kimberly McArthur (January 1982) in a hot tub and briefly talks to her! A few moments later there is also a brief scene with her being interviewed on the news, in which she states that a man nearly attacked her in her backyard (in fact, Magnum just stood there and told her that he's "not the sushi man"). This entire scene is missing on the Region 1 DVD (at the 32:52 mark, you can hear the musical score end abruptly). Oddly, this scene IS included in the standard syndication airings on television (and is included in the German DVD)!"

I'm watching from what is evidently a Region 1 burn then...'cause this scene was not in it! It sounds from the above description like something straight out of Ferris Bueller's Day Off! Was the accompanying music March of the Swivelheads by English Beat..?!

Ferris Bueller's Day Off did open in June 1986 and this episode first aired in October 1986, so it's entirely possible.

Does anyone know if this scene is anywhere on YouTube..?

Many thanks.

Hi BK :)
Luckily, the UK Blu-ray release has the above scene fully intact. A helpful user posted torrents from it a while back. Here's the full version of "L.A.". :D
