Get out your Hawaiian shirts and overly short shorts! This week we look at the backdoor pilot for J. “Digger” Doyle which is actually an episode of Magnum PI. Topics for discussion include how Tom Selleck looks like someone’s divorcee dad, the fact Orson Welles does a guesting voice role and how the plot tries to undercut Digger at every chance it gets.
