Tom Selleck and his moustache are back in Magnum P.I.: The Complete First Season DVD from Universal Home Video. Packed with 22 episodes, this set has all the Hawaiian goods that you've come to love from the comedic action series. From the original episodes' synth theme and opening all the way until Mike Post came along with his famous wailing guitar number, there's plenty of surprises waiting to erupt from this release. Sadly, very little extras are included, though the set does come with some nifty packaging complete with puffy lettering, if that counts for anything. Bonus episodes include a two-part story arc that concludes with a Simon & Simon episode and another pair of Magnum episodes starring a then-unknown Sharon Stone. The picture comes with a standard full-frame image and Dolby Digital Stereo sound that should successfully preserve the show for future generations of Thomas Magnum fans years down the road.

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Ed Hulse
This popular detective series not only ran eight seasons, but it also made a star of Tom Selleck, a handsome ex-model who up to that point had gained little traction in his acting career. Set in Hawaii, Magnum P.I. follows the exploits of its eponymous hero, an ex-Navy SEAL and intelligence officer turned private investigator. Hired to provide security for the estate of a wealthy absentee owner, Thomas Sullivan Magnum moonlights as a private eye. His extracurricular activities frequently arouse the ire of estate caretaker Jonathan Higgins (played by John Hillerman), a caustic, by-the-book administrator who's always keeping a watchful eye on the security chief's expenditures. Magnum's closest friends, ex-SEALs Theodore "T.C." Calvin (Roger E. Mosley) and Orville "Rick" Wright (Larry Manetti), often assist their Vietnam-era buddy on his cases, which bring them into contact with a varied assortment of criminals and murderers. Created and initially written by Glen A. Larson and Donald Bellisario, Magnum P.I. relied heavily on Selleck's charm and his chemistry with veteran character actor Hillerman, but it also sported some genuinely fascinating story lines played out against picturesque Hawaiian locations. The pilot, "Don't Eat the Snow in Hawaii," introduced Magnum and incorporated his personal history into his investigation of the murder of another ex-SEAL accused of running drugs. Selleck originally played the private eye with a harder edge, and the 18 first-season episodes are tougher, grittier, and less dependent on comedic byplay than those of later seasons. This deluxe box set, by the way, also includes two-part "crossover" stories featuring characters from Simon & Simon, another CBS detective show; one of these showcases Sharon Stone pre-Basic Instinct. In later years, as Selleck softened the character and the plots grew more fanciful, Magnum P.I. lost some of its allure, but the first-season episodes are uniformly good and will once again delight fans of this enormously popular series.

The Magnum shows are just as great as I remember them, but the quality of the discs I got was lousy -- lots of skips and hang-ups, and some episodes just plain wouldn't play. If that wasn't bad enough, somebody had the brilliant idea to record on both sides of the disc, and it's practically impossible to tell if you are on side one or two. This was a wonderful show. It deserves better.
