Magnum PI (Season 2) DVD Review


One of the top rated shows on the 1980s decade, Magnum, PI thrilled audiences with its exotic setting and fast-paced action. Winner of multiple Emmys and Golden Globes, the show was a mainstay in the Top 20 Nielsen Ratings. Its Vietnam flashbacks (exploring the combat experiences of the main characters) were widely lauded, and Magnum, PI is considered the first television series to give recognition to the obstacles faced by Vietnam Veterans reentering American society. The range of topics, combined with a clever wit and heightened suspense, make Magnum, PI one of the more widely appealing TV series of its era…

Magnum, PI covers the life of Thomas Magnum (Tom Selleck), a former Naval Intelligence officer who resigns his position in order to set up his own private investigation business in Oahu, Hawaii. Through either luck or acquaintance, he lands a job as head of security for bestselling author Robin Masters' luxurious beachfront estate. This enables Magnum to drive around in Masters' sporty flame-red Ferrari, make use of various high-tech toys, and live a life of relative ease in the estate's guest house. But Magnum constantly butts heads with estate manager Jonathan Higgins (John Hillerman), a former British military man in his own right, and one with a strict penchant for order and discipline. Despite their conflicts, Magnum and Higgins maintain a healthy friendship, while Magnum's friends Rick Wright (Larry Manetti) and T.C. Calvin (Roger E. Mosley) are forever being drawn into Magnum's dangerous investigations…

The Magnum, PI (Season 2) DVD features a number of exciting episodes including the season premiere "Billy Joe Bob" in which Magnum is hired by the rambunctious Texan Billy Joe Bob Little to help uncover the whereabouts of his missing sister Carol Anne. But Magnum's hands are full with both an investigation and Billy Joe Bob to take care of… Other notable episodes from Season 2 include "From Moscow to Maui" in which a Soviet defector hires Magnum to help facilitate the defection of his Olympic athlete girlfriend, and "Mad Buck Gibson" a hilarious episode in which Magnum is hired by Mad Buck Gibson's ex-wife to make sure that the adventurous author lives long enough to pay her the alimony she's due. But Mad Buck's shenanigans make the job a tall order for Magnum…
