Product Description

Buckle up for more action-packed adventure with all 22 Second Season episodes of the Emmy Award-winning, smash-hit series, Magnum P.I. Tom Selleck is television's most charismatic detective, and he's back in his slick Ferrari cruising the streets of tropical Hawaii. Beautiful girls, hot cars, and of course Higgins, T.C. and Rick are all here in this sizzling set that's loaded with unforgettable guest stars, including Mimi Rogers, Dick Butkus, Pat Morita and Jill St. John. Available on DVD for the first time ever, Magnum P.I.: The Complete Second Season is a must-own for thrill-seekers everywhere!

Return to the Big Island for more adventure with Tom Selleck’s charmingly roguish detective hero, Thomas Magnum, courtesy of this three-disc set, which compiles the entire second season (1981-1982) of Magnum, P.I.. The 22 episodes included here (among them the two-part "Memories Are Forever") crystallize the key to the series’ success: an appealing blend of action, drama, mystery, and comedy, cemented by Selleck and his likable castmates, especially John Hillerman, who would earn a Golden Globe for his work on Magnum in ’82. Highlights of the season include Magnum’s attempt to stop an international assassin ("The Jororo Kill," with Tyne Daly), the arrival of Hemingway-esque author Mad Buck Gibson (Darren McGavin) in the episode of the same name, and the aforementioned two-parter, which reunites Magnum with a woman he thought to have died after marrying her while serving in Vietnam. The usual array of classy guest stars are also on hand for this season; in addition to the aforementioned actors, there are turns by Mimi Rogers, Vic Morrow, Vera Miles, Jill St. John, and Elisha Cook Jr. (who plays a much different character than his recurring role as "Ice Pick" in future seasons). And Magnum obsessives should note early appearances by Gillian Dobb, who played Agatha Chumley in numerous subsequent episodes, as well as one of Higgins’s colorful, estranged half-brothers in "The Elmo Ziller Story." It’s unfortunate that the set itself doesn’t match the quality of the Episodes--extras are limited to second-season episodes from Knight Rider and The A-Team--but Magnum fans should be pleased to have all the episodes in a single set, and best of all, commercial-free. --Paul Gaita

    Format: DVD
    Magnum P.I. is my favorite TV show of all time, and season 2 is my favorite season. Here are the episodes:

    Billy Joe Bob - A cowboy from Texas, who is searching for his younger sister, runs around the island and punches everyone in the jaw.

    Dead Man's Channel - In a tribute to "Raiders Of The Lost Ark," the archaeologist's daughter in this episode is named Marion. Tom Selleck had been the original choice to play Indiana Jones in the movie. Selleck would eventually play a satire of the character in the season 8 episode "Legend Of The Lost Art."

    The Woman On The Beach - This is my favorite season 2 episode. It's full of action, adventure, mystery, and romance. Guest actress Judith Chapman gives an absolutely brilliant performance. The final scene of this episode would be redone as the final scene in the season 5 episode "Mac's Back."

    From Moscow To Maui - A Soviet military pilot defects and lands his airplane in the U.S.

    Memories Are Forever - This two part episode is extremely important to the history of the series. We learn a lot about Magnum's activities in Vietnam. This episode introduced the Michelle character. This episode will be referenced through flashbacks in quite a few future episodes.

    Tropical Madness - Magnum and Higgins get involved in a love triangle with a young British lady who is visiting the estate. Higgins punches Magnum in the jaw. No one believes Magnum when he says he was attacked by a Sumo wrestler and a dwarf.

    Wave Goodbye - A Vietnam veteran, who's suffering terrible psychological pain from the war, is the lead suspect in the murder of a young female surf champion.

    Mad Buck Gibson - Mad Buck Gibson is an eccentric writer who is visiting the estate.

    Format: DVD
    Magnum, P.I. is a classic TV show that never ages. Although the clothing can be humorous, the acting is timeless and the scenary is breathtaking as it ever was...both the actual coastline AND the Ferrari! :-)

    Season One was great, and Season Two doesn't disapoint either. Tom, T.C., Rick, and Higgins are at their best after a season of getting into the groove of working with each other, and I think it shows in the comradery and chemistry that they have in the second season of the show. It is not a stretch to believe that the Tom, T.C., and Rick served in Vietnam together, or that Higgins and Magnum really DO have a love/hate relationship. Which can only mean that they did their acting job really, really well.

    After watching the first two seasons, the only thing that I was left to ask was, "WHEN ARE THEY COMING OUT WITH SEASON THREE?!" It can't be soon enough for me.

    Recommendation for purchase (as opposed to renting it) of this series: ***** (5 Stars)!

    Format: DVD Verified Purchase
    I have enjoyed it for years and admit to having about 40 VHS tapes commercials and all. So, needless to say, I was thrilled when I heard that the show was going to be produced on DVD. I bought Season One and there were a number of eps that I had never seen - cool. But I have had to ration my watching while waiting to see if Universal would indeed release Season Two.

    My basic review is that for the fan and semi-fan, having the EP's on DVD is indispensible. This show is one of the best series of the 80's - it is hysterical to see people hustling to find a pay phone to use and to see the 80's Hawaiin clothing. Season Two contains some of the better episodes of the show and this set will be a great addition.

    However, as a caveat, UNIVERSAL has done a TERRIBLE job producing both the Magnum and Miami Vice series. Here are a few of the problems primarily for Magnum but which relate to Vice too.

    1) There are simply NO SPECIAL FEATURES. Except for five very short documentaries on the Vice set, there is nothing about the particular show beyond the eps themselves. How difficult would it be to track down the actors and interview them?! There are minimal notes attached to each ep which gives information that any fan, or anyone with an internet connection already has.
    2) There are multiple times on both series where the audio is out of sync with the video...and not just barely. Magnum's or Crockett's lips will move and the words will come about a half a second later.
    3) Universal must have some serious manufacturing problems. I bought Magnum Season One and have had to return it three times - I am on my FOURTH brand new copy of Magnum and am close to taking my Vice set back too.

    Format: DVD
    The first season of Magnum was plagued by poor production values, poor acting by the extras (and often the guest stars too), and a "sameness" that made watching episodes close together (as happens when you have a DVD) a little dull. With the second season, all these issues are alleviated to a great degree (although not entirely eliminated), and the show becomes more fun to watch.

    It's not that the average episode is written much better - that will have to wait for later seasons, although the last disc in Season two is solid from top to bottom. No, it's that the characters are now in full form and the stories are richer for the interplay between the 4 main characters (Magnum, Higgins, TC and Rick). In fact, the extended universe starts to finally take the form it would keep for the rest of the series, with first appearances by Michelle (Magnum's wife), Agatha (if not the character, at least the actress), and the first of Higgin's legendary half-brothers (Elmo Ziller, from Texas, which allowed us to finally hear John Hillerman's real accent!). Similarly, the shows "feel" more like Magnum, leaving some episodes with bittersweet conclusions, and others without real conclusions at all - like the episode "Mad Buck Gibson" where we never learn if Mad Buck survives his last death-defying stunt. Why not? Well, it wasn't the point of the show, and the show ends just as it should, with Mad Buck appealing to Magnum mano-a-mano and talking him into allowing him to try hang-gliding to Maui.

    Unfortunately, I had to deduct a star for the quality of the DVD set. Like all 2-sided DVD's, it's difficult to keep both faces clean, so there were issues with episodes seizing up, or the menu not initialising, etc.
