Special Features


Editorial Reviews

Simon & Simon is classic 80s television: a Top 20 action series and the show that followed another classic, Magnum P.I., in CBSs Thursday night lineup. Airing from 1981 to 1989, the show followed the Simon brothers as they ran a detective agency in San Diego, California. Despite coming from the same family, Rick (Gerald McRaney, Jericho, Major Dad) and A.J. (Jameson Parker, JAG)were complete opposites. Older brother Rick was a scruffy Vietnam veteran Marine, laid-back with street smarts and an aversion to rules, while A.J. was a slick, booksmart college graduate who was ambitious and sophisticated. Simon & Simon hit its stride in Season Two, landing it in first place in ratings for the first episode and staying comfortably near the top thereafter. Guest stars include Eddie Albert, Lisa Eilbacher, Morgan Fairchild, Cleavon Little, Joe Mantegna, Dean Stockwell and Ray Walston.

Bonus Features:

* Includes the Magnum P.I. crossover episode

5.0 out of 5 stars "Who rides for justice?" January 15, 2009
It's about time season two of this great show was released on DVD. To make up for lost time Shout Factory should have released both seasons 2 and 3 together like Universal did with the 3rd and 4th seasons of The Incredible Hulk. But i'm thankful after more than two years to be getting the second season. Nearly every episode is either good or great. And the list of well known or soon to be well known guest stars is another plus, including Tom Selleck, Charles Napier, Kathleen Lloyd, Anne Schedeen, Stuart Whitman, Ray Walston, Robert Englund, Darleen Carr, Richard Kiel, Jonathan Banks, Dick Butkus, Ed Lauter, and more. An episode from Magnum, P.I. featuring A.J. and Rick is the only bonus feature. A commentary on the 2 hour Pirate's Key episode by Jameson Parker and Gerald McRaney would have been nice. Hope season 3 follows soon.

Total of episodes: 24

5.0 out of 5 stars WE DID IT!!!! Not a review, but a thank you! January 6, 2009
Don't ever let anyone ever tell you not to take on 'the giant'. We did, and we won. All of us who wrote, called and e-mailed Universal made a difference. Obviously Universal didn't make the money they wanted to, so they sold the rights to Shout! Factory. Universal . . I still think you are a money grubbing conglomerate that ditches old shows and actors like trash. After the money Jameson and Gerald made for you . . . and that is what they get. Nice. Shout! Factory . . . thank you so much. Not only do we finally get rolling with the rest of the Simon's cases, but we already have Adam-12, SCTV and many more thanks to this company. Now that we rallied to slam Universal, let's make sure we thank Shout! Factory just as much. Send them a 'thanks' at
And I thank all of you fellow fans of San Diego's finest private investigation firm (no, not Peerless Detectives, sorry Myron) for your voice in this matter. And now that the Sleuth channel has removed the boys from their line-up, this may be all we have for some time. This all may seem a bit much for 'just a t.v. show', but S & S is my favorite show of all time and I sincerely thank you for helping in getting this ball rolling.
Thank you

5.0 out of 5 stars Let's go, Simon & Simon Fans!!! December 12, 2008
Come on, Simon & Simon fans! We've been given a reprieve from Shout! Factory. Let's buy Season 2 in bulk, so they have no choice but to issue the rest of this great '80's series. We have a second chance. Let's not blow it. Rick and A.J. are counting on us!

5.0 out of 5 stars THANKS SHOUT! FACTORY!!!! January 7, 2009
By IamEqui
It's about time! I am counting the days until February! Thanks so very much Shout! Factory for releasing the second season of "Simon and Simon". I can't wait for the rest of the seasons. I will be buying copies for everyone I know! It is the best private detective show ever made, especially from San Diego.

5.0 out of 5 stars Rick and A.J., hitting their stride! February 13, 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
"Simon & Simon: Season Two" on DVD is worth cheering about! Far better written than the first season, and opening with a very entertaining crossover with it's new lead-in show, Tom Selleck's "Magnum P.I.", the series, and it's wonderful stars, Jameson Parker and Gerald McRaney, provided an irresistable blend of action and humor, and is every bit as enjoyable today as it was in 1982!

Viewing both seasons, besides being great fun, is an education on how a series is 'polished' and improved. Besides the bouncy new slide-guitar theme, the characters of Myron Fowler and his daughter Janet (Eddie Barth and Jeannie Wilson) are gradually phased out, as the role of the Simons' mother, Cecilia (Mary Carver), is enlarged (thankfully, Marlowe, Rick's big, lovable dog, is still a fixture!). The backstory of Rick being a 'Nam vet is introduced, as is the first of the brothers' Police Department 'buddies' (Robert Ginty, as a hip coroner), who would foreshadow the arrival of Tim Reid, as Detective 'Downtown' Brown, in Season Three. More episodes would be set in the San Diego area, fewer across the border in Mexico (with a two-part episode utilizing the unaired series pilot, set in the Florida Keys), and most episodes ended with a smile (it appears McRaney often ad-libbed; watch Parker's attempts to stay in character to his occasional asides!) The show definitely had the look, and feel, of a winner!

While I wish the collection offered a 'Subtitles' option, and commentaries by Parker and McRaney (I'd LOVE to hear their recollections), and the picture quality is occasionally a bit grainy, I'm not complaining; Season Two was the first of the GREAT seasons of "Simon & Simon", and I'm thrilled that it is finally available on DVD!

After a rather shaky first season, the Brothers Simon hit the ground running in season two partly in thanks to their lone Hawaiian-based counterpart Thomas Magnum. Read more
