    4.0 out of 5 stars The show with a past April 29, 2006
    Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
    I'm happy to report my Fourth Season DVDs played fine. More importantly, the series really comes into its own during its fourth year on the air. While most programs designed for an hour slot, Magnum and Higgins' characters have enough depth to them that each hour is something of a glimpse into their lives. In particular, you can't watch this season without appreciating something about Magnum's past influences, his father, author Raymond Chandler, Agatha Christie and others. While all of this is wrapped in the sometimes dated trappings of an '80s TV show, a lot of the substance of the show survives.

    This season includes what may be the best hour of television writing of its era, the Home from the Sea episode. As another reviewer mentioned, this is the "treading water" episode and it cemented many viewers' bond with Selleck's character. No staged fist fights, no explosions, no Ferrari chases. Not many episodes come close to this.

    Other memorable episodes include Distant Relative, which focuses on Rick, Rick's sister and Magnum as a "babysitter" for a not-too-innocent twentysomething. Letter To A Duchess, in which Higgins has a crush on a British woman who falls for Magnum, also stands out: all the right sets, enough action, and it illuminates the Magnum-Higgins relationship that turns out to be the show's core.

    Vietnam always lurks not far below the surface in the series, and The Look is an interesting (but dated) tie in to Magnum's past, with a female disc jockey who plays a role similar to Tyne Daly's female-friend-in-Vietnam from the excellent "Jororo Kill" episode in season two.

    Another brilliant episode: Operation Silent Night, in which the main characters are marooned on Christmas Eve on an island used for Navy gunnery practice.

    Magnum P.I is my favorite TV show of all time.

    My original plan was to buy all 8 seasons on DVD.

    However, with the releases of the first 3 seasons, Universal has repeatedly released DVDs with a very high rate of defects. Many people on many different internet message boards, including myself, have been complaining about lots of problems on these DVDs, such as pixelating, freezing, skipping, etc. Some of the episodes are unplayable. Even after multiple exchanges at the place of purchase, some people still can't get a set that plays properly. These are manufacturing defects. Universal has been repeatedly informed of these defects, but has chosen to do nothing about it.

    I own the first 3 seasons. But I'm done buying this show on DVD. Withholding my money from Universal is the only real way to express my disappointment with the defective DVDs. I won't be buying seasons 4, 5, 6, 7, or 8.

    My 1 star rating is for the high rate of defects on these DVDs. If it weren't for the defects, I'd be giving this a 5 star rating.

    Here are the episodes from season 4:

    Home From The Sea - This is my #1 favorite episode of the entire series. I won't spoil it for you by revealing any of the plot. But I will say this: if you've ever seen the episode where Magnum treads water, this is it. This is a very emotionally intense episode. You know those big guys with the bulging muscles and the tattoos who claim they never cry? If you show them this episode, I bet they will cry. If you want to introduce the series to someone (of any size, age, or gender) who has never seen it before, this is the episode to show them.

    4.0 out of 5 stars Season 4, Still Solid, but... June 19, 2006
    By jhjr88
    Magnum P.I. was my favorite show when I was growing up. I was ecstatic when they began releasing individual seasons on DVD. Fortunately, for myself, I have not had any problem with the playing of the DVD's like other individuals have experienced. I DO NOT like the double-sided DVD's!!! Way too easy to scratch and damage!!!

    What I appreciate most about the DVD episodes is that they are the full-length, original, un-cut episode which runs 49-50 minutes long. Today's syndicated episode version's have 5-6 minutes of material trimmed from their original filming. Also, you get each season's original, beginning intro-theme song and footage as well as it's original conclusion footage and music. A true Magnum P.I. fan will remember the cheesy, musical intro the show had for it's first 11 episodes in Season 1, which was later changed to it's more popular theme song which is more synonomous with casual fans.

    Season 4 begins the slow, downturn the series experienced in the middle of it's total run of 8 total years. Although, season 4 makes for decent entertainment, Season's 1-3 were the best, with season number 2 being my favorite. Some of the story lines in season 4 became far-fetched and corny. Season's 5 and 6 continued this downturn and the ratings were also, downtrodden vs. previous years. The show became re-invigorated in Season's 7 and 8 by getting back on track with continuing storylines the show had developed over the years, bringing most to a conclusion with the exception of one. Who was truly, Robin Master's? Perhaps as Magnum thought, it was Higgins, but, we will never, ever know for sure. You draw your own conclusion.
