Crop And Save
Magnum, P.I.: Torah, Torah, Torah (1985)
Skip this one
Skip this one, the weakest episode of the weak Season 5.
Rick tends toward acting as a sniveling loser, but begging to be scammed by "Mac" is beyond belief. This episode is a failure even by the show's low standards.
The quality combination of humor and darkness
The quality combination of humor and darkness.
The interaction with Patrick & Pippa begins a humorous thread that continues.
Margaret's do-gooder lies may cost a man his life.
Ruined by fake Harry
Ruined by fake Harry (among other things), who somehow had a completely different personality and much more dialog than ever before. Bad writing, Bad acting.
Judy and Sandy aged badly.
As Time Goes By: Animal Magnetism (2000)
Skip this one
Skip this one, as it is one of the worst episodes (possibly the very worst?) in the entire series.
Weak episode for season 3
After finishing the evening with Rocky, Alistair sadly says, "Outclassed." It was artificial, melodramatic, and out of place. Something like the ugly pink Cadillac.
On the Up: Barbados (1990)
Humor ruined with PC nonsense
Humor ruined with PC nonsense.
Mrs. Wembley especially got involved in some drama/humor, but Tony's random, weird PC/SJW rant at the golf club was pathetic. Worst episode of the season, by far.
Worst episode of Season 5?
The weak, monotonous plot and the bad acting make it an episode that can be skipped. It is worse that a sergeant behaved like a whining sycophant at the whims of a miserable little brat.
The worst episode thus far in Season 4 is a farcical mess, even by Gomer's low standards.
The pretentious lady thinks she is too good for many things, yet sits about smoking cigarettes like common trash. Typical.
The minor plot provided the humor.
Miami Vice: Milk Run (1985)
Weak episode with Crockett making an even more pathetic attempt at being a tough guy in between chain smoking and hot dog eating.
Miami Vice: The Great McCarthy (1984)
The fake boat race was the worst
The fake boat race was the worst. No real purpose.
Very weak episode after a fairly good flow in Season 7
Predictable and full of weak/filler content.
Goldblume was annoying and whiny (like usual, with the addition of being a crybaby) and nothing consequential happened.
Race baiting left-wing extremism in the 1980s?
As if it were the 21st Century, the black cops immediately discarded loyalty to their department in order to blame a questionable situation on imagined "racism."
A frustrated storekeeper uses "Nazi" propaganda as a strange effort to deter criminals and is threatened by the cops to an extent that hardcore criminals do not have to deal with.
"Captain Taco" revealed his incompetence for all to see
"Captain Taco"--as he was derisively called in his own office--revealed his incompetence for all to see. Other than sniveling self-service, he has failed to accomplish anything of note. And, of course, nothing is his fault.
Humanized version of Data in the 20th Century. Interesting.
Time travel allowed Tuvok to appear as a medic. Interesting.
Calletano failed again
Calletano continued his emotional, melodramatic foot stomping while retaining his mediocre "worth ethic." In this case, it was even worse in that he happened to overlook a minor point of procedure that even a sergeant would have followed correctly.
Magnum, P.I.: Squeeze Play (1983)
Skip this parody of Magnum, PI
Skip this parody of Magnum, PI, which is at least in the top three worst episodes up to this point. An animated episode would have been more appropriate.
Hill Street Blues: Death by Kiki (1983)
Goldblume & Hill are liabilities
Goldblume & Hill are liabilities for the department.
Goldblume sat about moping and whining because an armed kidnapper had been eliminated. He has the emotional stability of ex-wife (such as Fay).
Hill creates his own problems due to his insecurities.
More interesting due to a somewhat positive (albeit somewhat stereotypical) depiction of a person with narcolepsy.
LaRue got put in his place, which he badly needed.
Catellano and Goldblume
Other than whining and expressing insecurity, what does Calletano do to prepare himself for promotion? He feels entitled to an eventual promotion to captain for no other reason than standing about in the office moping and complaining to his colleagues.
Goldblume finally showed some ability. He is an interesting partner for Belker in certain circumstances.
Fay is intolerable
Fay seems to produce nothing in her life except shrill, whining complaints about drama. Francis lacks the self-respect to cut her off from accessing his office all day with her trivialities.
Social commentary relevant from then until now
It is interesting that Calletano relied on an affirmative action-type initiative to be one of the few cops promoted to Lt., but then goes on to criticize the same system for putting him where he is.
Magnum, P.I.: Computer Date (1982)
After only two weeks pursuing a married woman, then being rejected, Rick says: "You can't just throw away everything we've had" and insists he loves her and tries to enforce an ultimatum for her to decide between him and her husband.
Not only is Rick scummy for putting all his hopes in "loving" a married woman he barely knows, but he also decides (temporarily) to end his long-time friendship with Magnum.
Aside from that, Higgins' work to prepare for meeting his old friend is amusing (especially because it is followed up by meeting her much younger "traveling companion").
