Nice to see Vic Morrow, but he's a far cry from Sgt. Saunders in Combat or the punk in Blackboard jungle.

Maybe he was going for a TS look, but somehow the longer hair and mustache don't work for him.

I could be wrong, but I believe the woman we see surfing at the beginning of this episode (the one that is supposed to be Kacy) is surfing legend Rell Sunn, the "Queen of Makaha". It's hard to tell for sure because you really don't get a good look at her, but it certainly appears to be.

Image

Rell had a brief appearance at the end of Season Four's "Dream A Little Dream".

Speaking of the opening surf scene, what's up with the "Kid on the Beach" (credited as such) checking out Kacy as she comes out of the water?!

Image

He looks her up and down, bites his lip. What is he like 12! :shock:

I think Officer Kelly was framed and it was the kid who did it.

I don't know about you guys, but a surfer chick in a bathing suit would have certainly caught my eye at 12 - suddenly the way I looked at women completely changed around then!

LOL! Styles! :)

I'm not arguing with that. It just seemed a little.... strange. Especially the way they shot it. Why a "Kid on the Beach"? A "Teenager on the Beach" would have been more palatable. ;)

True enough. That does seem like behaviour a little more suited to 16-18...or 19-99. :wink:

The title of this episode got me thinking about the state of TV today. Basically, 'wave goodbye' to programming like MAGNUM P.I. Reality TV sucks!
I only watch TV for the Lakers games! The rest of the time I watch my complete MPI collectionm or I'm out experiencing life.

What is really odd, and they didn't show on camera is that the kid immediately put his towel in a ziplock bag after Kacy was done with it. He's 41 now, and still has the towel.

I was a little disappointed in this episode. It had no Magnum p.i. "charm." And Vic Morrow could only play one character, no matter what he was in... The kid on the beach (credited as Joey Coleman) scene was definitley a throw-away - no kick.

I liked this episode and I'd a given it a 7.5 if the poll was working. In particular Magnum's empathetic approach to Nick was quite moving.

The plot twist worked well for me too, I had the grumpy cop as the culprit.

Lots of bikined bodies around to add to the visual appeal of the episode.

When Magnum goes to talk to Nick Frangakis (The Nam veteran) and they first meet, Frangakis is holding a M16 - they exchange some words in Vietnamese.

Does anyone know what they say to each other?

I like this episode mostly for Vic Morrow and Wings Hauser. ESPECIALLY Wings, cuz I love that man.

I think the biggest weakness with this episode -- and this was the fault of many television series of the 80s -- was that we had no prior knowledge of the victim. So we see Magnum all upset, but have no background really as to why, and then we never hear about her again.

I mean, you saw stuff like that all the time on stuff like Hart to Hart, but here we see a noticably (sp?) distraught Thomas, and yet, we don't feel that sadness ourselves. Not like when Tanaka died (as an example)...

Hi there Bathurstfan, the location is included in my location guide, and you can find more info about it there.

The Surfrider Club was located here, although I suspect they built an exterior set against the side of this building and didn't actually use the inside. I haven't yet found where the interior was filmed. As far as actually getting there, you could probably use the directions on this page for the way to the Lost survivors camp. They're both on the same beach. The beach is public property, but I think if you actually went up to the building you would be at risk of meeting the security guards who are there mainly for the Lost set to the northeast. Although I'm not sure what the security situation is now that Lost is no longer being filmed.
