5.0 out of 5 stars Top Tash, 12 April 2005
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Magnum Pi: the Complete First Season [DVD] [1981] (DVD)
I bought this set thinking it would provide me with little more than a few nostalgic chuckles, as has regretfully been the case with other 80s shows. But Magnum is class. The interaction between Magnum and the other main characters (particularly the brilliant Higgins) is excellent, generating genuine laughs and fondness. The show is happy to mix such light-hearted laughs with more serious elements, and some of the episodes in which Magnum and the team revisit their memories of Vietnam are quite moving - especially if the time in which the show was first aired is considered. But first and foremost Magnum is top-notch entertainment; classic detective stories (the noir-style voiceover is inspired) with a tropical twist, driven forward by a talented and eminently likable ensemble. Even 25 years on, every woman wants to be with Magnum; every man wants to be him. Even given the tash.
