Buckle up for more action-packed adventure with all 22 Second Season episodes of the Emmy Award-winning, smash-hit series, Magnum P.I. Tom Selleck is television's most charismatic detective, and he's back in his slick Ferrari cruising the streets of tropical Hawaii. Beautiful girls, hot cars, and of course Higgins, T.C. and Rick are all here in this sizzling set that's loaded with unforgettable guest stars, including Mimi Rogers, Dick Butkus, Pat Morita and Jill St. John. Available on DVD for the first time ever, Magnum P.I.: The Complete Second Season is a must-own for thrill-seekers everywhere!
Return to the Big Island for more adventure with Tom Sellecks charmingly roguish detective hero, Thomas Magnum, courtesy of this three-disc set, which compiles the entire second season (1981-1982) of Magnum, P.I.. The 22 episodes included here (among them the two-part "Memories Are Forever") crystallize the key to the series success: an appealing blend of action, drama, mystery, and comedy, cemented by Selleck and his likable castmates, especially John Hillerman, who would earn a Golden Globe for his work on Magnum in 82. Highlights of the season include Magnums attempt to stop an international assassin ("The Jororo Kill," with Tyne Daly), the arrival of Hemingway-esque author Mad Buck Gibson (Darren McGavin) in the episode of the same name, and the aforementioned two-parter, which reunites Magnum with a woman he thought to have died after marrying her while serving in Vietnam. The usual array of classy guest stars are also on hand for this season; in addition to the aforementioned actors, there are turns by Mimi Rogers, Vic Morrow, Vera Miles, Jill St. John, and Elisha Cook Jr. (who plays a much different character than his recurring role as "Ice Pick" in future seasons). And Magnum obsessives should note early appearances by Gillian Dobb, who played Agatha Chumley in numerous subsequent episodes, as well as one of Higginss colorful, estranged half-brothers in "The Elmo Ziller Story." Its unfortunate that the set itself doesnt match the quality of the episodes--extras are limited to second-season episodes from Knight Rider and The A-Team--but Magnum fans should be pleased to have all the episodes in a single set, and best of all, commercial-free. --Paul Gaita

The highlight for me would be episode 9 , "Mad Buck Gibson " with guest star Darren McGavin , perhaps you may know him as
"the old man " ( father ) in the movie " A Christmas Story "or perhaps as " The Night Stalker ". He is always , for me , just
so believable , almost like he is not acting at all. This episode also has a plot that involves rather heavy subject matter , which is dealt with in a most unusual way , takes a turn at the end that I didn't think Hollywood could get away with.
All good , and for me much better than current TV.
Watching these shows again has brought back many happy memories.
