5.0 out of 5 stars A pint of stout..... I would like a pint of stout. December 14, 2007
Magnum P.I. is my favorite show of all time. Season 8 is the last season.

The original plan was that season 7 was to be the last season. "Limbo," the last episode of season 7, was originally broadcast as the last episode of the series. However, after that episode was broadcast, they decided to do one more season. When season 8 first aired, they broadcasted an edited version of "Limbo." Whereas the original version of "Limbo" closed up the storyline, the edited version sort of left things hanging.

Universal has announced that the season 8 DVD set will contain the episode "Limbo." I am guessing and hoping (but am not certain) that this will be the edited version, because the original version was already included on the season 7 DVD set.

For the record, I do not like the idea of changing something after it has already been officially released. For example, I love the original theatrical versions of the "Star Wars" trilogy, and I hate the changes that George Lucas made for the "special editions."

However, having both versions of "Limbo" is a good thing, because the edited version sets up the stage for season 8.

Here are the episodes from season 8:

Infinity and Jelly Doughnuts - It's hard to talk about this one without giving away any spoilers. So let's just say that this is a very heartwarming and moving episode. My only criticism is that in order for the plot to work, it requires rewriting the past history of what had happened in "Limbo." Some Magnum fans wonder if it's really fair to consider this episode (and all of season 8, in fact) an official part of the Magnum storyline. Some fans have suggested that the entirety of season 8 was just a dream. I guess if you analyze it too much, it can ruin your enjoyment.

4.0 out of 5 stars Resolutions...did longtime Magnum fans notice? March 7, 2008
By jhjr88
Season 8 uses the phrase "The complete season 8 of Magnum PI," on the packaging. Well...this is not entirely true. I found a few discrepancies with the final episode, "Resolutions." First off, when this episode ran in first-run trim back on May 1st, 1988, the infamous theme song intro and actor introductions that were synonymous with every prior Magnum episode were not used. On the DVD version it is...and oddly enough, they use the same opening theme intro from seasons 6 and 7, not the one that was used for season 8. Secondly, the beginning scene is edited from the original version. You can even notice how the music was dubbed over if you listen carefully. Third difference, in the first run of this particular episode...there was an ending credits tribute of scenes and music from previous season episodes that lasted close to 2 minutes at the conclusion of the final episode, followed by Magnum looking into the camera donned in his naval officer's uniform and saying, "Good Night." Magnum then pointed the remote in his hand at one's TV and clicked it to turn the TV show off for good. This very last image is included, but edited. I suppose the first-run version was only seen on it's original airing and I guess I'm fortunate to still own the tape. I would have thought the box set would have included this version instead of the made for syndication version that was included with it. Somewhat disappointed by this. I also would have liked to see both Rockford File episodes included in which Tom Selleck appeared as the character Lance White. Season 8 only includes one episode. The fact that there are only 3 discs (12 episodes) with this set and the price is still the same as past Magnum DVD seasons which were at least 20 episodes and 5 discs in total... Read more ›

5.0 out of 5 stars Gets better with the years! February 17, 2008
I was 11 years old when this show went off the air and I remember how captivated I was by the characters, the action, and the mystery of it all; Magnum P.I. was the coolest character I'd ever seen. Now that I'm 30, I began revisiting the shows on DVD. Once I got past the styles and became immersed in the stories again, I was surprised to discover that this show has held up well with age, far better than many of my other favorite 80's shows such as The A-Team, Knight Rider, or Miami Vice. The reason why is that this show had the perfect balance of comedy, mystery, and from time-to-time an unexpected touch of melancholy wistfulness as we discover the true characters beneath the surface, including Thomas Magnum, (spoiler alert), a boy who lost his father on the fourth of July when he died in the Korean War, lost his youth, his innocence, and his brother in Vietnam, lost his wife to another man, lost several of his best friends to more violence, and who never seems whole again, never finding anything that seems to work out. What made Magnum so appealing is that he didn't always ride off into the sunset with the girl and the money. He was a guy who'd had a tragic life, but who still tried to make the most of his life, trying to recapture the youth he'd never had. Magnum had far more substance beneath the surface than most shows of that era and was rarely given its due. Most of the depth is due to Tom Selleck himself; he was Magnum and still is. If Harrison Ford can still play Indiana Jones, then Tom Selleck should be Magnum if and when they finally get the film into theatres. Buy the entire series, grab your Old Dusseldorf, Magnum's favorite beer, and remember a time when we were all younger and the sun always rose over Robin's Nest and the tidal pool and the guest house with a sleeping private investigator back from an all-night case...just hoping that Higgins isn't ready to fly any more model planes or blow up gopher holes on his day off.
