Happy Fourth to all. I hope nobody had their day ruined by any turkeys.

I decided to make this a Magnum 4th of July so I watched this one, followed by "Death and Taxes". The latter is one of my absolute favorites (an easy TOP 5) but the former is also an excellent episode - a tale of survival and flashbacks to TSM's father and what made TSM the man we know and love. There are no bad guys in this story (unless you count the "Hot & Heavy turkeys") so it's a bit of a departure from the norm, but it's also what makes it special and gives it a uniqueness which makes it stand out. It doesn't have a memorable villain like The Ripper or Ivan (which is probably why it doesn't make my TOP 5) but it definitely does a great deal to expand the Magnum-verse and explain the character of TSM. It also has a very powerful and emotional ending. I've seen this episode twice before. I thought making my 3rd viewing on the 4th would be ideal. It was!

I completed my annual 4th of July tradition of watching this episode and as usual it never disappoints. Lots of emotion and background on Magnum, I love it. Rick and his date on the boat cracks me up, especially when he's yelling at his chef Wong about the non American menu lol. Thomas' tradition of being alone on the fourth is really cool to me, especially with the rationale of the day his dad died and his military background. What an excellent way to kick of season 4!
