Just watched a re run of this episode on television. Oh man i just love it even more than i remembered!
Many episodes in the last two seasons are more serious, and by all means very good aswell. So this episode seems so fresh and funny, and reminds me more of some great light hearted episodes from season two or three.
The plot with Higgins "being Magnum" and just having fun and being childish is great, and almost makes me cry with delight.

There are some beautiful shots of the estate with surroundings here aswell.

This is more of what i would have liked to have seen in the final episode of the series. A real joy :!:

It was a good comedy episode to lighten the mood after the previous two were more serious. The whole misunderstanding of Rosita towards the end was pretty convoluted. If she had an appointment with Higgins then why would a reputable psychologist blow it off without telling anyone? Magnum guessing the club where they were correctly was a bit of a stretch too. TC secretly following Magnum around and then being treated rudely at the estate was a little odd to me also, but I guess they were blaming the coma for causing abnormal behavior from everyone.

I cracked up when Magnum walked in on Higgins in the psychiatrist's office.

The only visual is of the office door and you hear Higgins say "Oh. My. GOD!"

Boy, that was funny. At first I thought he had walked in on Higgins in the middle of an actual session.

Okay so this has been on my mind for like forever, but in the series Choujuu Sentai Liveman (1988-1989), there is a morphing sequence music cue that sounds like the Magnum theme and "Conga" put together. Considering the show aired after this episode, I can seriously imagine a Sentai producer or composer seeing this episode somewhere and coming up with it. :lol:

Some key takeaways for me (over the 3 episodes....

1) From "I.A.J.D.", my take of Frank Peterson as a "jackhole" still rings true.

2) Apparently "Conga" was the only Latin song in 1988 since they played it like 4 times throughout the episode.

3) Higgins can bust a move, and has added another weapon to his arsenal - "The Dropkick of Devastation".

4) Higgins was so happy when Magnum came out of the coma. I thought he would start skipping or something! (But clearly that shows JH's range as an actor)


OMG AMAZING post Doc Ibold ha ha ha! I've literally been laughing out loud since I just saw this!

Frank Peterson - Arguably as HATEABLE as any other character in the entire series, especially considering he's not even a villain!

Conga playing throughout has always mystified me, come on now, there had to be a couple other songs they could have put in there!

The aptly named "Dropkick of Devastation" has always cracked me up! This episode was in the first 5 or so that I ever saw and I remember after seeing this scene that Higgins was some sort of fighting expert and laughing about it! Not that he doesn't have tons of combat experience and some self proclaimed "karate skills" like we see in many episodes, but not knowing better I thought he was the shows badass!

Higgins dancing was amazing, the finger snapping and such, not to mention his hilarious outfit!

Agreed. :lol: I know that song was a huge crossover hit around that time but come on! :lol: Plus it was always the chorus and not the instrumental parts utilized. :P
