Magnum, P.I. - Season 8

( 3 )

Overview

It had been assumed by the producers of Magnum, P.I. that the series would be canceled at the end of its seventh season, thus a two-part finale was written in which the hero, Hawaii-based private eye Thomas Magnum Tom Selleck, was shot and killed, his soul ascending to heaven. However, the series was renewed for an eighth and final season -- which is why it is explained in that season's opener that Magnum was merely wounded, and that his journey to paradise was but a feverish nightmare!

Overview

It had been assumed by the producers of Magnum, P.I. that the series would be canceled at the end of its seventh season, thus a two-part finale was written in which the hero, Hawaii-based private eye Thomas Magnum Tom Selleck, was shot and killed, his soul ascending to heaven. However, the series was renewed for an eighth and final season -- which is why it is explained in that season's opener that Magnum was merely wounded, and that his journey to paradise was but a feverish nightmare! That said, the adventures of Magnum, his boss-by-proxy Higgins John Hillerman, and his Navy buddies T.C. Roger E. Mosley and Rick Larry Manetti, roll along in their customary thrilling and sometimes tongue-in-cheek fashion, until the end of the season -- which in this case is the climax of the series. On this occasion, the viewer finally learns the identity of Robin Masters, the elusive author for whom Magnum has been working the past eight years. And, among other things, Magnum is reunited with his long-estranged daughter, and decides to forsake civilian life for good and all to re-up with the Navy. At least, that appears to be what happens. On this series, who can be certain?

    Magnum at his best!

    I was delighted after viewing the Magnum P.I. series. It is even better than I remembered it. And it's infinitely better than the standard fare on tv these days--it's entertaining rather than dark as are so many of the tv series being produced now. It stands the test of time and is both engaging and worthwhile. With a nice blend of humor and drama - it's fun to watch the interplay of the series' main characters. People need to be uplifted and this series will do that. I give it a 5 star rating - I am very glad to have it!
