A couple of things about this episode. First, did anyone think it was strange that Tozan walked around Honolulu carrying two swords? Personally I think he would be arrested within minutes today. Also, for the fight at the hanger, when all those ninjas came pouring out of the limo, first thing to come to my mind was a bunch of clowns coming out of a small clown car. Cracked me up!

another really good episode in season 3.............though the whole bit of beating up Magnum at the hotel was lost on me.

Great episode! The plate smashing scene and the scene in the bathhouse are funny too, when the ladies snigger while Magnum de-towels himself [don't think they've been mentioned yet].

You're trying to say it wasn't a documentary?

At the beginning of the episode Higgins blames TM because he found some dog repellent spray on the mantle of the GH, while he was retrieving Mr. Masters' wide-angle lens.
TM: ... what's that have to do with you spraying that stuff in my face?
-JH: Dog repellent.
-TM: Dog repellent?
-JH: I was just giving you a taste of what you've been giving the lads. No wonder they detest you so.
I thought you'd gotten rid of this substance. You gave me your word.
-TM: I did?
JH: You did.


This is a reference to the dialogue occurred in the episode 'One More Summer (2.17)' when JH found the same animal repellent in the GH, while he was retrieving Robin Masters' camera:
-JH: Animal repellent? What on earth are you doing with animal repellent? The lads. How dare you!
-TM: Oh, come on, Higgins. I was on this case, and I had to take care of these watchdogs.
-JH: Anyway, it was a good six months ago.
-TM: I just simply forgot to throw it out.
-JH: No wonder they dislike you so intensely. How beastly. How savage...

very funny! :D

50/50. Tops.

Useless trivia (that is probably on Wikipedia anyway): The TMNT's started out as a comic book. They parodied the popular comic book trends of the early 80's

Teenagers: DC's Teen Titans

Mutants: Marvel's X-Men

Ninjas: Marvels Daredevil faced off time and again against a group of ninjas called "The Hand." The Turtle's had "The Foot Clan."

Anamorphic critters like Dave Sim's Cerebus.



As for this Magnum episode...I wasn't too crazy about it. I just find the idea of a samurai walking around too odd. I did find it hilarious that the bad guy rolls through town in a limo full of ninjas. You do NOT want to cut that guy off in traffic.

I liked the idea of using Ninja as villians, but the overall plot wasn't my favorite. Really, they were fighting over a plate. I was surprised being based in Hawaii they didn't explore more ninja and/or samauri stories. Higgins also seemed really calm about someone about to perform ritual suicide on the estate. Wouldn't Robin Masters frown upon something like that? I'm sure the media would've hammered him for that.

This is one of my top 5 favorite episodes. Not sure why. Just really enjoy it. I like the part where TM tells Tozan that he will whistle to signal him. Tozan looks confused. And TM says " you have your history, and I have mine". Or something to that effect.

This is a good solid episode, an 8 for me.

- The Tozan character has grown on me the more I've watched this one. I think it was interesting how he taught TM some things and vice versa.

- I totally enjoyed the ninjas and the ridiculous music that played when they were on screen, very fun!

- Good old Rodney Radcliff (whoever plays the antique salesman in this, Rodney Radcliffe in season 6 "Old Acquaintance", and the sailor in season 1 "China Doll")
makes another appearance! I like this role and the season 1 role, I HATE the Rodney Radcliffe character!

- The bath/massage parlor scene cracks me up. Magnum is so clearly EXTREMELY uncomfortable while Tozan feels right at home, hilarious!

- The end of this episode with Big Hig wielding the Samurai sword at Magnum is priceless, one of my favorite endings of the series lol.

Season 3 is so full of great episodes that maybe I lowballed this one at an 8 but regardless a very fun episode!

I remember this one not for the ninjas but for the suspense, if you will, that a Magnum, PI episode might have an "honorable" suicide. There was a close call in The Taking of Dick McWilliams and by this time in the series you did not know what to expect for the ending of an episode. I think not knowing what to expect, especially with the ever changing weekly plots, was one of the addictive aspects of MPI.
