It wasn't until seeing the IMDB page that I realised that Harry McGraw (a recurring character in Murder, She Wrote) was played by Jerry Orbach.
There's a bunch of Polynesian tribesmen who got a portable TV that could only pick up American channels. They wanted justice, so in true cargo cult fashion they built Lenny Briscoe out of straw and leaves, ten feet tall. On some nights you can see the light flash from the small mirror used in place of a badge. The wind on those nights sounds like it's saying "Briscoe. Homicide."
