5.0 out of 5 stars Great DVD to chill out on!, 13 Feb. 2006
This review is from: Magnum PI - Series 2 [DVD] (DVD)
When I bought the DVD of Magnum (having seen it first time round on TV) I really had doubts about whether I was doing the right thing. But two box sets later they really have been great TV.
For those of you who dont know much about the series, Magnum is a retired naval intelligence officer, turned private detective, who lives in the guest house, (as head of security) on the estate of an incredibly wealthy, but very illusive writer Robin Masters. Glimpses of Mr Masters are extremely rare and Magnum ekes out a living as a private detective aided by his two friends "Rick" who runs a local club and TC a helicopter pilot who makes a living flying tourists around the island.
The stories are set in a beautiful location with the sun and sea always in the background, and generally well written mixing a good detective story with a touch of humour thrown in. Magnum has constant run-ins with the english estate manager "Higgins" who likes to reminisce about his war days and enjoys exercising the dogs "Zeus" and "Apollo" on Magnum, as they see him pretty much as an intruder. It's cheery, upbeat and generally light hearted although not comic, and is great for family viewing (I showed them to my 15 year old nephew and he quite liked them). Im very glad I bought these series and I shall be getting the third box set when it comes out.
