One of the best live bands I've seen ever over the past 35yrs, and this recording catches the escence of everyone involved, guitarists, drummer, keyboard player and vocals, and lets not forget the sound and lighting engineers. The lighting is stunning. Its a superb recording all round, a feel good factor. So why is this not on DVD yet. Ive practically worn my VHS recording out, just as well I have a laser disc copy. A what I hear you say, Yip "Laser disc" that's right, so come on, Im sure this will transfer well onto DVD, or even better "Bluray" How long do we have to wait. As long as it takes, but lets not leave it too long, there's lots of Magnum fans out there, and this a superb recording.

There has been talk of many super action heros on television, Starsky and Hutch, The A Team and Doctor Sloane to say a few. But in my opinion this video collection is the quintessential viewing for anyone desperatly searching for perfection in the identity of a hero. Thomas Magnum( played excellently by Tom Selleck) is a private investigator funded by the multi millionaire writer Robin Masters, which has its purks such as the use of a rather nice Ferrari. However the keeper of the house, Higgins, begrudges these priviledges and the conflict results in superlative viewing. The set is Hawaii, a haven for ex military veterans, which introduces us to the good friends rick and TC, who fought so valiantly in Vietnam.
All nine episodes are classics in themselves but two of the best scenes to look out for are firstly Magnum's smile in the second episode( I don't want to spoil it by saying any more) and the result of the fight with Ted Danson's character, yes Ted Danson. This video is what dreams are made of, what more can I say?

After too many years in the archives Magnum P.I is Back!! This was essential viewing for me as a teen and Magnum & friends have not none of their charm. Well worth the money and great value too. Lets hope universal playback keep them coming as there are so many classic episodes to choose from. Given the current dross on prime time television, owning the Magnum boxset in your video collection is a must! Go buy it. Well, what are waiting for!!

I used to be an avid fan of Magnum PI during the 80's. Its a great series with a mixture of action, mystery, comedy and romance (Magnum always seems to get involved with damsels in distress).
Magnums love-hate relationship with Higgins is an ongoing battle where they both try to get one over on each other, every episode. Magnums Vietnam buddy's are always there to help him out with his investigations. All in all its a classic cult series, and if like me, you like Tom Selleck, its a must buy.
