And am I correct that the actor who played Sato was not only Sato in Karate Kid II but was also in the Season 2 episode Texas Lightning as a deckhand who eventually gets thrown overboard?

Yep. He was in several other MPI episodes also, as well as many Hawaii Five-0 episodes. He was one of the big name local Hawaiian actors in the 70s and 80s. He passed away in 1996.

I really enjoy watching this one! Pretty wild, with the Japanese girl popping out of the box, pretending to be this innocent/abused girl looking for her fiance...when the whole time she's really this enraged psycho--bent on assassinating her own father! :o

More of Higgins' interesting past is also discussed, and the action scenes on the waterfront were pretty good! The plot twists are excellent and entertaining to watch. Very good episode, and I rated it as such. :)

Hey, RC, this might make for a nice addition to the Filming Location Guide (if you decide to release another version).

The pool hall scene with Magnum, T.C., Rick, Mr. Harms (Donald Gibb) and Mr. Jansen (Dick Durock) was filmed on location at the Cebu Pool Hall (Hotel and River Streets), which appears to have been a rather notorious Filipina hangout for many years. The hall was part of the H.Y. Wong building (built in 1906), which at the time of this episode was one of the last remaining wood-flame structures in the downtown Honolulu area. The building was razed in 1992 and replaced with low-income housing.

*Interesting article about the building*

Magnum's v/o sez: "problem with asking people on the docks if they dont know ya, they wont tell ya." This is magnum's problem all thru the show, week after week. As with the earlier scene with da braddah with da forklift. he's acting all impatient and all haole. If he was more braddah braddah, he would get what he needs. there is a way of communication here unknown to outsiders. it's ho'omalimali. Magnum never learns it.

"and the rare shot on the Estate on the balcony)" Not balcony. It's a lanai.

Not trying to quibble Kimo, but as the home is Spanish Colonial Revival in style, it would architecturally be termed balcon corrido which is a balcony used as a corridor or hall. All the upstairs rooms open onto this space and there are no internal hallways whatsoever. This is actually quite unusual even for that style as it requires a temperate enough climate to be practical, which you guys definitely enjoy. There is also a style-specific term for the side entrance downstairs that leads to the arcade and the front door. It is termed zaguan, which has no easy translation into English. It is basically an entrance, but not into the house proper. Rather, the doors might lead to a courtyard, loggia, patio, or as in this case the arcade, then onto the front door.

architecturally correct. however as it is in Hawaii, it would be a lanai. has been referred to as that since the 30's. Just like ya don't call them flippity flops or whatever they say in the conus. They are rubbah slippahz here. Local culture, Context and all that.

also, good info, there, Pahonu. I love architecture and like learning about it. Spanish/Mission revival, et. al., is one of my favorites styles.

"All the upstairs rooms open onto this space and there are no internal hallways whatsoever" almost not surprisingly enough, a characteristic also glimpsed at in portions of the Cooke estate/King Kamehameha Club structures...
