Episode 5 of this season, "Death and taxes" is edited from its original broadcast
Verified purchase
Magnum was never big at using pop songs on its episodes, but I can remember past seasons where, on the few cases there were, those were present and accounted for. Sitting on the dock of the bay comes to mind, and a couple of others. Now, this episode should open with a 3 minute montage of a woman running from a man with a knife, with Genesis's Mama playing over the whole scene. Probably because of music rights, that whole scene was cut out of the DVD. The copy I own opens with the Magnum/Higgins scene arguing about the wine cellar Thermostat. As it is the episode runs about 42 and a half minutes, almost 3 less minutes than any other episode on the set. Shame. Love the show, hate to see this becoming common practice over crap like music rights.

The most famous tache in tv history
Verified purchase
I had put off purchasing Season 7 & 8 in HD as the full price was a bit too much. I had purchased the previous 6 seasons back in 2018/19. But I just saw that these seasons were included in the sale price of £4.99 for the first time ever so it was hard to resist the purchase (Had I waited I could have got the previous seasons at this price also). As mentioned in my Season 1 review I had not seen this show (except for a few episodes) during its original run in the 80's. I saw it in reruns in 1999 and the early 2000's and I was impressed by some of the storylines which were actually quite mature although you still had the odd frivilous fun episodes. Overall its a great show that lasted for a full decade from 1980 to 1988 and one whose success cannot be matched.

High point and preparation for a good bye

Considering series 6 was the weakest this series was a good way to make up for that. It's truly awesome and epic episodes like Paper War are just too good to miss.

Series 7 was supposedly meant to be the last series. I don't believe that was really the case for a moment. It was left too open. Whether they meant it would be the last for a few years or something it would have been criminal to leave it open like that even if Bellisario left Quantum Leap's ending wide open (though I think that wasn't meant to be that way either).

Do the right thing and get all 8 series. If you are happening to just buying series 7 then at least get 8 as well so you can complete the Limbo episode.

Still a Good Show
Verified purchase
Haven't got round to watching this season yet. But so far They've been really good to watch again after all these years, and still as good as I remember them. I am a Lotus esprit man, but that Ferrari still looks great. I only ever saw the first 3 seasons when I was young, as I was at boarding school for the later seasons, So no telly for me in the evenings except Top of the Pops on a Thu night. So a real treat for me to be able to get to see these after all these years. I have noticed in the later seasons the quality of some of the episodes is not as sharp as you would expect. Now with bigger TVs with better quality viewing, this shows up more, which is a shame. In this day you would expect today's technology in production to be able to compensate or get round this, However the shows are good enough to be able to look past that, I havd in deed forgotten how good they are. Also would have been nice to have some useful bonus features about the series. I seam to remember there being a one off program about this show, can't remember who did it and was mid 90s I think. Overall a good buy and got these at discount price which made them even more worth while.
