“Black on White” (S3E6)
Ello, guvna! Ian McShane guest stars as a very, very sweaty racist ex-soldier who is convinced he’s about to be killed by the ghosts of the Mau Mau uprising. It’s an opportunity for thoughtful explorations of the legacy of empire and the damage it did to people on both sides, but this is “Magnum, p.i.” so instead it’s an abortive attempt to recreate “The Odd Couple” with Thomas and Higgins! Also: A series of poor accents, an amazing Pac-Man game, Rick takes one right to the head, and there’s a twist ending that’s anything but.
