just watched this for the first time in a LONG time.....and it amazes me what you don't ever forget.
Couple observations, I love Higgins referring to the chopper as an Easter egg when complaing that it should never land on the estate.
Maggie was hot.
Stalag 17 is an awesome movie....have seen it many times.
Best ending of any Magnum episode......the kind where you give a fist pump and let out a "YEAH". It had so much more impact then as the Cold War was starting to thaw.
A bit shocking to the ears to now hear dialogue use the 'N' word and other such colorful terms. I hadn't heard 'honkey' since the Jeffersons
One minor complaint.........and I can't remember if the original was played this way, but though I loved no preview highlights at the beginning, I felt the ending could've been done better after shot was fired. By that I mean the frozen shot was great, but the screen/credits shouldn't have jumped into the standard cheery song..........maybe silence would've been better for added effect. Like I said, minor complaint.
....but to then go into the Simon & Simon episode after this one was garbage IMO. Could that have been an out of sequence thingy?
I'm still partial to Memories are Forever, but this is right there as best episode.
