Watching this one for the first time in a few years. Ok the dude on the telephone pole who reports back to colonel Green is so clearly the guy who plays Doc Ibold it's not even funny lol. I'm not trying to rip on the show (obviously love it to death) but I completely enjoy finding the bit actors who play very different recurring roles.



Hi Milton

If memory serves me correctly the man on the telephone pole was actor /stuntman Robert F. Hoy aka Bob Hoy. :magnum:



Just googled it, your right!!! Good spot, I stand corrected lol:)


Cheers Milton ,

I always enjoy your posts. My first western series as a kid was " THE HIGH CHAPARRAL" . Bob Hoy was one of the regular cast members. I always loved westerns and he featured in many ( Bonanza , The Virginian ,etc back in the day). You are spot on about about the lesser or bit part actors making several appearances on MPI. Bob Hoy was in 4 MPI episodes between 1981 & 1986. :magnum:

You're welcome, Brad! I enjoy scanning the "extras" in the background to find the repeats.

So I just re-watched one of my favorite TV Drama Episode's of all time ... The above entitled (It blew my socks off, as a kid) ... Sorry, if this has been addressed already, but is the Japanese Ambassador shown, John Hillerman - AKA "Higgins" ???

And who here, really thought TM would "waste" Ivan, in the final scene - Esp. When they first saw it ? ... In today's Military, the term is usually "reduce" ... (Not saying or implying, Ivan did not deserve it in spades) ... But it was what is was, AND what did they do with the Driver ? He heard the shot, and could easily ID Rick & his car (according to "Buck" there were only 14 of them on the Island ... )

Watched again and just loved it, great overall episode! I can only complain that the TC/Nuzo/Poisoned gum and mind control from 10 plus years before was a little bit of a stretch but well worth it as this episode is one of the best. The vietnam backstory especially, totally gripping and extremely realistic. I can't imagine a more hateable, despicable villain than Ivan, and the ending monalogue between he and TM with Ivan getting "wasted" by Thomas was just an awesome way to end this one. Probably the best ending of the entire series. As Milton Collins would say, "Bravo Magnum" to this entire episode!

This is still one of my favorite Magnum PI episodes, but stil it's not perfect. Besides the magical brainwashing bubble-gum, the idea of a Bulgarian agent looking exactly like Nuzzo, even after plastic surgery, and nailing him down to the voice and the accent is a bit far-fetched.

Also the scenes with Ivan were a bit camp. That cookiiiiie/niggarrrr schtick was unintentionally comical and the whole 'you Amerrricans with yourrr stupid prrrrinciples' speech is a bit cringeworthy seen from this side of the Cold War.

Definitely one of the classics. Seeing blood pour out of Cookie while being told to stick his finger in the hole gave me nightmares when I was a kid.

It's definitely what one would call "squick" nowadays. That said, gushing aside, that blood is too opaque to look all that real.

Anyone else get a Lucie Arnaz vibe from Julie? :D
