Magnum PI. One of the best shows of its kind. I'm really enjoying rewatching it.
Verified purchase
Two large DVD cases - in a nicely illustrated, but thin and tight fitting card slipcase.

The DVD cases are good quality. The eight series are spread over the 'book' style platters in the large cases. The DVDs are physically well made,clearly marked and nicely illustrated. There is one DVD per platter side and the DVDs are easy to access, insert and remove.

The quality is as good as I've come to expect from DVD versions of TV series of this age. I'm not an expert in these matters by any means - I watch either on a laptop PC or a budget 42" TV with DVD player - but, to me, the audio and video are fine (and far better than the usual standard definition TV broadcasts).

Back in the day, I had watched Magnum irregularly when it originally aired on TV, and liked it. More recently I'd noticed Magnum intermittently on TV bit the shows were riddled with advert breaks and of poor broadcast quality. Unfortunately, the Magnum DVDs were very expensive (£100+), so I waited until they dropped under £50 before buying them.

Watching thes DVDs, I had forgotten how many Magnum episodes there were. Eight series! But Its even better than I remember it, so the more the merrier.

Great 80s classic tv in HD but what's with the bizzare episode numbering
Verified purchase
I'm a casual Magnum P. I fan, though I preferred shows like Miami Vice and Quantum Leap. But I noticed Amazon was offering the show in HD, so I purchased Seasons 3 & 4 (the only seasons aside from 2,7 & 8 that are complete although they have wierd numbering with season 1st episode showing as episode 19 - a quick check on IMDB will show that this is actually episode 1- the wierd number pattern continues into season 3 and reapppears for season 7 & 8 (which i still have the original dvds) with only seasons 1 & 5 & 6 missing odd episodes. Also while this a full season it's bizarre to see it numbered beginning episodes 41 instead of 1 onwards. While Picture looks great, the HD does tend to pick a lot of grain in certain scenes - this obviously due to the age of the footage. It's not so noticeable on smaller screens but on bigger screen TVs. Having only re-watched the first few episodes I have to see it's a lot fun seeing Tom Selleck & Co in a series that blended humour and drama Quiet well. This only the second 80s tv show after Knight Rider to get the HD treatment from Amazon as it's very rare to find old shows in HD. So kudos for that.

(Edit 15/08/2020 - Have just gone back and checked that Amazon has now corrected the numbering - that had previously been incorrect from Season 2 onwards. The episodes that were previously missing have now been added, except Episode 6 Fragments from Season 5 is only available in SD, hopefully once it is available in HD Amazon should add this for me as I had already purchased this season in HD)
(Edit 11/10/2020 Just seen that last 2 seasons which I never bothered purchasing as I still own the original DVDs are on sale for £4.99 in HD, they have never been included in the prime sales before, I couldn't resist purchasing and thereby completing my full collection in HD. I had never intended on purchasing at the original full price)

Shame it's been butchered . Not the original edit and with later season titles grafted on.
Verified purchase
Universal have ruined the narrative flow of the pilot by crudely cutting latest season titles onto this. The original pilot had a great jazz funk title them by Ian Freebairn-Smith and a completely different set of titles . The pre-title sequence segued beautifully into this as per the original director's vision. This now jars into the more familiar Post / Carpenter theme with much later season titles . Unnecessary especially for collectors who want the best digital quality source. Buy the blu-rays instead where you get the original unedited copy.

Tom Selleck turned down Indiana Jones for this.
Verified purchase
Unless you were around in the 1980’s I really would be surprised you would buy this. The settings, car and perfect looking people helped sell this. It was a long running show and some episodes are let down by poor stories. Good for Hawaii tourist industry. If you can’t get there watching this might be a substitute. Unless we get locked down again not sure I’ll buy anymore seasons. May try watching the reboot see if it’s any better.

A classic 80s show
Verified purchase
Absolutely brilliant watching this again after so many years. It holds up really well and better than some other shows from the same time. Tom Selleck is fantastic as P.I. Thomas Magnum, an every man detective. There is great camaraderie between the main cast and the scenery, cars and locations are gorgeous. Great 80s classic.
