MAGNUM P.I. - THE COMPLETE COLLECTION

PrintE-mail Written by Kieran Fisher

Fabulous Films is giving cult ‘80s television the treatment it deserves. Having already restored the complete series of The A-Team, Airwolf, and Knight Rider, with Miami Vice and The Incredible Hulk set for release soon, there are hours of television on the horizon for all ardent fans and newcomers alike seeking to immerse themselves in the most beloved shows of a bygone era. However, for now, we’re going to focus on Magnum P.I., which is undoubtedly one of the most incredible and quintessentially ‘80s thing you’re likely to see.

But rest assured we’re not exaggerating when we say there is hours of television time in your future should you purchase this set - an impressive 130 of them for that matter, spanning 157 episodes over the course of 8 seasons. That’s 7813 minutes of television of explosive action, frantic chases and basking in the glory of one of the greatest characters to ever grace popular television. Are you ready to handle it?

The series follows Tom Sullivan Magnum IV (Tom Selleck), a retired soldier and private investigator who oscillates between bringing criminals to justice and living a life of hedonism in Hawaii. After accepting a job to work as a security advisor to a famous author, he soon realises that the island isn’t a sand-coated paradise after all, as there is a dirty criminal underworld in need of a clear out – the kind only a man of his skills and unbridled quest for justice can provide. He also has one mighty moustache. All in all, this is like the typical male fantasy personified in the form of an icon we can all root for.

Unfortunately, there are no features on the set. That said, the restoration looks absolutely stunning here; if you’re familiar with the show then you’ll be pleased to know that it’s never looked this good.  If you’re going to relive the experience, you certainly won’t be disappointed with this transfer.  However, if you’re a newcomer then this is the perfect introduction to the iconic series that will show you just why most of us fell in love with it in the first place.

Overall, this set is highly recommended. There aren’t many better shows out there for providing this level of quality when it comes to pure entertainment. It’s an easy show to watch, but don’t be surprised if you find yourself hooked on its charms. Revisiting this set is like spending time with an old friend – a friend who has never looked so good after all these years.
