51 The Magnum, podcast Holiday Special Featuring Lance White, P.I.
Mele Kalikimaka! It’s our holiday special, in which we watch two episodes of “The Rockford Files” that allow us to discuss the creation and formation of “Magnum, p.i.” The episodes in question are “White on White and Nearly Perfect” (S5E4) and “Nice Guys Finish Dead” (S6e7) featuring Tom Selleck as the luckiest private eye in L.A., Lance White. Consider this a big Christmas stocking stuffed full of new segments. The segments are your presents.

We discuss Stephen Fry, Sherlock Holmes, James Bond, Sean Connery, Scottish accents, corpulent detectives, V for Vendetta, 1984, Fahrenheit 451, Ray Bradbury, Solaris, The Fountain, Garfield, “in medias res” movie conceits, Doctor Who special effects, our favorite TV shows of all time (including Buffy, Max Headroom, Sports Night, Spaced, Smack the Pony, and the Rockford Files), The Middleman, Kevin Sorbo, Gene Roddenberry’s posthumous oeuvre, and why Steven Spielberg can’t make a good TV show.
