Okay...I don't know if this has been mentioned before (as I did not take the time to read all of the previous comments/reviews), but I doubt it has.
But, for those who are fans of and/or have watched episodes of the popular 1970's Superhero series "Wonder Woman" (starring Lynda Carter)...you will recall an episode during last season called "The Deadly Dolphin" (1978).
This episode of "Magnum" is almost identical
to the "Wonder Woman" episode!
In "Wonder Woman" there's this trained dolphin that is kidnapped to use to blow up a boat...complete with the bomb being strapped to the dolphin and it might be killed during the operation. Wonder Woman of course swims in the ocean to try and help save the dolphin...Magnum and T.C. swim to try and find the dolphin in this episode! Maybe all dolphins sound the same...but even some of the noises and "talkings" the dolphin makes in this "Magnum" episode are identical
, and sound like the exact
same ones, used in the "Wonder Woman" episode.
Of course at the end of "Wonder Woman" the dolphin is saved and the bad guys caught..."Magnum" follows suit! I swear the writers of this "Magnum" episode literally stole the script/plot idea of the "Wonder Woman" episode!
Other than that, this "Magnum" episode is kind of silly, over-the-top, and annoying!
After the superb 2-part premiere "Deja Vu"..."Old Acquaintance" was kind of a disappointment.
