    Having just seen the full story on Irish TV this morning and last week I have a technical question. Is the film used actually from the original episode, or was it a re-mastering job that went wrong? It actually looks like the type of film that would've been used on McGyver or late period Airwolf in the late 1980s, as opposed to the usual fresh, punchy and charismatic film quality on Magnum. Was it a dry run that was abandoned, or what is the reason for it, as I actually can't stand that type of film to be frank, and I'm glad latter episodes in the season seem to revert back to the *proper* format, I say this as DYSTSR was actually shown out of sequence on RTE.
