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.Read more ›
