This 2 DVD release is called "The Best of the 80s: Magnum P.I."

Here are the episodes:

Please Don't Eat the Snow in Hawaii - This is the two hour pilot. As an introduction to the series, it serves its purpose well. But I've never considered it to be one of the series' best episodes.

Memories Are Forever - This two hour episode from season 2 is a wonderful, emotionally intense story. That being said, it's not one of my personal favorite episodes.

Home from the Sea - This is my favorite episode of the series. This is the one where Magnum treads water for almost the entire episode. It's from season 4.

Blind Justice - What in the world is this season 5 episode doing here? It's not a bad episode, but there's no way I'd have put it on a best-of.

Kona Winds - This is from season 6. No episode from season 6 is good enough to be on a best of compilation. Has anyone who bought season 6 ever watched the entire season a second time?

Limbo - This is the last episode from season 7, and was originally planned to be the last episode of the series. I certainly won't complain about this beautiful, touching episode being here. However, please be warned that this episode has a major cliffhanger ending, which is not resolved in the contents of this best-of.

Resolutions - This two hour episode from season 8 is what actually ended up being the end of the series. It's inferior to Limbo, and I would not have included it.

My advice if you're looking for an introduction to the series? Skip this compilation, and get season 2, which is my favorite season. Or, if you really don't want to be without the wonderful "Home From The Sea," then season 4 wouldn't be a bad place to start.

First Universal took three years to release the 8 seasons of Magnum P.I. Each season box set was different from the other. The first few seasons were printed on double sided flipper discs which were very deffective. Now they are releasing a best of on standard definition dvds. Please Universal I beg you give the fans of this wonderful and iconic show the box set that they and the show deserve. A remastered COMPLETE SERIES single sided blu-ray box set with extras including crossover episodes, cast interviews, and pop culture trivia about the show. We would gladly pay big money for quality product. Don't rip us off again.

I don't think anyone mentioned it (or noticed it) but Don't Eat The Snow In Hawaii is a shorter version of the same episodes from Season One. The Best of Magnum cut out the part when the sister of the dead naval officer arrives at Honolulu airport drunk. I believe they have cut out a few minutes of each episode. Beware. As a true Magnum fan I need everything, however, as an alternative I do like the compilation and think it's a good idea. Just wish they include the full versions though.

I bought this because one of the Magnum websites said that this had the original broadcast version of the final episode. It doesn't. It's exactly like the one on the Season 8 set. Same ending credits, same cut scenes, same syndicated, 2 part version. The good part is that it only cost $3.

These few episodes give a good representation of how fun this series was (still is). They do tend toward the dramatic with more emphasis on Magnum's Viet Nam past than the series had as a whole. The first two-part episode is there, setting the tone, and the final two-part episode is there, as is the great Limbo episode. I do wish they had included my favorite "Forty", but I can't complain too much. Overall this is a great sampling of one of the few great TV shows from the 80s.

Take me back to the 80's! good drama! Love the car! Magnum delivers some great performances and it still is safe to have the kids watch shows like these.
If you are looking for all around good entertainment, this is it!

As a teenager in the 80s, watching Selleck in short shorts wasn't appointment TV. But for classic TV from the era, MPI can't be denied. Picked the set up for $3.99 and it's perfect for me.
