I love this episode...and it's one of my all-time favorites!
The plot is superb, and the action and suspense is captivating! You truly believe there's a Mau Mau after Higgins and Ian McShane's character.
I love the spear coming through the door at Ian McShane at the beginning...it makes me jump everytime, even though I know it's coming! LOL!
I also love the humor between Magnum and Higgins in this one...the gorilla mask, the whoopie cushion Higgins sits on, Magnum purposely making a mess of his house to irritate Higgins, and the Pac Man game--that brings back memories!
But, I also love the care, respect, and even love Magnum, T.C., and Rick truly have for Higgins by going to all that trouble to try and help save his life! I love the plot twist at the end--when who the real
Mau Mau is, is finally revealed!
The title is somewhat oddly named, however. I suppose it could refer to race (the black or African Mau Mau coming after the white Brits for what they did to the African Village back in '53), or perhaps it refers more to "good" and "bad" (black--meaning the horror and massacure the Brits did to that African village, and white--the innocent villagers that were brutally butchered or raped by the out of control Brits)? Whatever the case, "Black On White" is one of the best and most suspenseful of the series! Love it everytime!
