5.0 out of 5 stars Magnum P.I. on single sided DVDs! September 1, 2006
Format:DVD
Magnum P.I. is my favorite show of all time. It ran for 8 seasons.

Great news with the release of season 5! Starting with season 5, the DVDs are single sided!

This is a very good season of the show. But it's not for newbies, because in order to understand some of the better episodes here, you need to be familiar with episodes from previous seasons. So if you're new to the show, I recommend starting either with season 1 (which is a great introduction to the series) or with season 2 (which is my favorite season, and doesn't require any familiarity with previous episodes.)

Here are the episodes from season 5:

Echoes Of The Mind Part 1 - This one hour episode was originally broadcast on September 27, 1984. The music in the opening scene is from the movie "Blade Runner." This is one of my favorite episodes of the series. Guest actress Sharon Stone plays twins. One of the twins is nice and kind and sweet. The other twin is the character that Sharon Stone usually plays.

Echoes Of The Mind Part 2 - This one hour episode was originally broadcast on October 4, 1984. This continues where the previous episode left off. This is just as good as that episode. I won't spoil the plot of either episode for you by telling you what they're about. These two episodes were made before Sharon Stone became famous. Both of these two episodes are excellent, even by the high standards that the series has set for itself.

Mac's Back - This is one of my favorite episodes of the series. While stopped at a red light, Magnum sees his friend Mac crossing the street. There's just one problem: Mac died two years ago. Magnum tries to convince his friends of what he saw, and they think he's crazy.

Format:DVD
Magnum is a show that follows the "star + ensemble" formula that has always been a mainstay of the action movie and TV industries. Nowhere does the formula been more successfully used, especially in the later seasons of Magnum. Stories are often set up through the backgrounds of the supporting characters. But it's still up to the star, in this case Tom Sellick, to carry the bulk of the load. Luckily Sellick is up to the challenge, and I think this season relies on Sellick more than any previous season to keep the show interesting and entertaining. Whenever the plot gets a little silly - and that happens in every season of Magnum - Sellick's down-to-earth and lovable portrayal of Magnum makes the show a joy to watch.

So what happens in this season? The most important plot points are the return of "Mac" (reincarnated as a charming con man), the development of Carol, the district attorny, and the increasing use of Icepick, Rick's godfather-like underworld connection. Few, if any, of the episodes are among the best of the series, but there are lots of good shows here to make the purchase price worthwhile. "Mac's Back" is the most obvious must-have episode of the season. Unlike others, I find the 2-part premier of the season to be overly melodramatic and possibly the worst shows of the season. The other 2-parter, featuring a rescue mission to a Cambodian jungle village, makes good use of its time and even brings Higgins back into his military acoutrements.

Many fans feel the show decreased in quality over the last few seasons. I am of the opinion that the show continued to get better - mostly due to the richness of the back stories and the quality of the supporting cast. Season 5 may not be the best season, but it's still a lot of fun to watch.

5.0 out of 5 stars Still Great After All These Years January 9, 2007
Format:DVD
After watching Magnum's Fifth Season, and owning the first four, I'm looking forward to having the complete series. With the backdrop of beautiful Hawaii, the storylines have humor, tenderness and, above all - which is what so many of today's TV programs lack - the deep and abiding friendship and comraderie of Magnum, Higgins, Rick and TC. The stories hold up because there is nothing mean spirited or vicious about these people, and makes you realize that if you are fortunate enough to have good friends, life can be pretty good. Of course if I were directing, the last episode would have Thomas and me walking hand in hand off in the sunset!

5.0 out of 5 stars Not independent review January 11, 2007
Format:DVD
So I'am going to try to write a review on Magnum P.I. It's going to be difficult for to stay independent because I simply love this TZv show. I've seen all episodes on TV and now I appreciate to buy this DVD so I can see it again and again. And finally I can see it in original language which is much better. Well, dr. Watson, let's start. I mean Higgy Baby...I have just seen last episode of fifth series. And what can I say. As good as all previous series. Maybe I can feel some difference but it could be only feeling. It becomes more serious. In beginning it was all more optimistic, higher spirited. But I understand it's slowly facing to the end. And the end is as all we know not really happy end. But maybe somebody don't know, so that's all to this. I like this smart intelligent humor, unforgetable atmosphere of 80's in Hawai, Magnum's sense of humor, his red Ferrari. But most astonishing is without question his highness, amazing, terribly worn, small and not so slim Jonathan Quayle Higgins III and all his "half-brothers" and amazing friends... I like also Robin Masters...Mixed humorous, serious, funny and sometimes sad and melancholic episodes with very good detective stories an unique charakters made I think this the best series in all the universe. I can only recommend this series to people, who like these old TV shows, nice, humorous, kind...not like today's production without glamour and without even mark of clever dialogue and smart plot of action.
