I agree with Bes... this was a very poor episode.... Only the one with the dumb girl from Magnum's high school class was worse (but not by much).

In another show, there was discussion of TC's van driving by in the background when Magnum was inside a building... I think (think) the show may have done something similar this time. When RJ was being chased in his car by the hit men, there was a scene in which he makes a quick left, cutting off a vehicle that looked like Magnum was driving... Not sure if it WAS Magnum, but it sure looked a lot like him.

I have, uh, "issues" with certain colors (particularly green/grey), so I have no idea what color it is. :?


That looks gray to the point of almost being black to me.




As for the episode: I didn't like it. The kid came across as a psycho to me. I was hoping Rick would pop up in the guys apartment at the end like Mark Wahlberg in The Departed to get some payback for that beer bottle.

Watching this yesterday on Encore. RJ had his scrapbook on Magnum. I wonder if someone still has the scrapbook?!

That Ferrari, as it appears on the NTSC DVD release, is gray. Here is a 5×5 pixel average sample taken from the lower part of the door:

Image

As you can see, the RGB value is 60, 60, 60, which is a perfect shade of gray. Any color which consists of equal parts of red, green, and blue is a perfect shade of gray, except for 0, 0, 0, which is black, and 255, 255, 255, which is white. I had to test a few spots to find a perfect shade of gray, but regardless of where you test on the car, it is always close to gray. However, green is never the most prominent color; the order of prominence, from highest to lowest, is always blue, green, red. For example, here's a sample from the hood:

Image

So if it could be called anything other gray, it would be blue-gray.

Given that the various shades of green in the lawn and trees show up fine, I can only conclude that the car was gray in reality, just as it appears on the DVD, and Magnum calling it "green" in the episode was an error.

I am in the minority here. I liked both the episode and the grey/green Ferrari!

Can someone please explain to me the Toronto Blue Jays link to RJ and this episode? Tate Donovan himself is from New Jersey, was screenwriter Bruce Cervi originally from Toronto?
Ta.

I believe that's a reference to the Blue Jays and the Tigers' famous rivalry back in the day.

From Wikipedia:
Quote:
The Detroit Tigers are the Blue Jays' geographic and traditional rival, dating back to the 1980s, when the teams were AL East contenders. The Tigers moved to the AL Central in 1998, and the rivalry has died down as a result, with the teams facing each other only six to seven times per year since 2011.

So basically, RJ's sticking it to Magnum in hat form. :lol:
