Magnum PI episode 18 preview: It starts with the dobermans

Magnum PIMagnum PI episode 18 is coming onto CBS in one week, and there are only three episodes left before the journey ends … at least for now.

Want to check out a new Magnum PI video? At the bottom of this article you can see our take on the show’s season 2 renewal! Check that out, and remember to subscribe to CarterMatt on YouTube for more. We have no scoop every day and you don’t want to miss any of that.

Episode 18, just from the small handful of details we know in advance of it airing, is going to be fascinating. For starters, the Dobermans have a big part in the plot! How often does that happen? They’re around, but often disappear for big stretches of time and you’re left to wonder whether or not they’re off roaming the wilds of Hawaii. Yet, they’re still around, and they are actually going to be responsible for the latest case. It starts with a discovery that these four-legged friends (or occasionally foes, if you’re thinking about Magnum) make. Where the story ends, meanwhile, could prove to be important to another character in Tim Kang’s Detective Katsumoto.

For some more information all about what’s coming, including a very important guest star, be sure to check out the synopsis:

“A Kiss Before Dying” – When the Dobermans dig up what appears to be a human bone, Magnum and Higgins help Katsumoto investigate the murder of his former mentor, on MAGNUM P.I., Monday, March 11 (9:00-10:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network. Roger E. Mosley, who portrayed T.C. on the original “Magnum P.I.,” guest stars as Booky, a Vietnam veteran and barber who offers sage advice and a great haircut.

Based on the details that are already out there about Mosley’s appearance, signs point to him sharing the screen with the new version of the T.C. character. It is a way for the past to nod at the present and to, hopefully, set up a role that Mosley could come back and play at some point in the future. Aren’t these characters always going to need a haircut?

With us being so much into the home stretch of the season, we’re psyched to get these final spotlights on some of these characters and understand more how Magnum relates to them and the depth of their bonds. It’s been so much fun watching this show build and develop over time — it’s come to adopt some elements of the original show in style. They don’t feel forced; instead, they add to the show’s landscape and the overall sense of fun.
