Tread Perilously — Magnum P.I.: The Ugliest Dog In Hawaii

tp1400-1Tread Perilously’s Total Request Live 5 continues with an episode of the 1980s Magnum P.I. called “The Ugliest Dog In Hawaii.”

When mobsters pose as animal control officials to get their mitts on Sir Algernon Farnsworth, the adopted dog of one of Higgins’s friends down at the club, Magnum is called in to investigate the incident and protect the pooch from any harm. Why an old mobster wants the dog is anyone’s guess? But after a second attempt to heist the canine, Magnum teams up with an actual animal control representative to learn the truth. Will Magnum also need to call in his friends to save his life?

Justin and Erik are immediately thrilled to see Michael V. Gazzo — Frank Pentangeli from The Godfather Part II — make an appearance. Justin introduces his new “Mustache Theory.” The naming conventions of Donald P. Bellisario get called into question. Justin tries to discern the actual premise of Magnum. Erik attempts to imagine the timeline in which Tom Selleck plays Indiana Jones. Marc Harmon turns out to be the most vain actor working today. Burt Reynolds proves to be stunningly important. Justin discovers that Motorhead is eternal and Erik learns the secret identity of Magnum‘s unseen Robin Masters.
