“Magnum P.I.: Season Two” Review by Suzanne 8/30/20
You can’t compare this to the original series, so you shouldn’t try. Tom Selleck is just too hard to replace. However, it’s a good, solid drama in its own right. The stories are compelling. There aren’t many private eye shows around on TV, so it’s good to have one. Also, now that “Hawaii Five-0” has been canceled, this is the only show set in Hawaii as well. Having lived there for 3 years, I enjoy watching this show to see glimpses of places I recognize. It’s also great to see Tim Kang (Detective Gordon Katsumoto) again…I loved him on “The Mentalist.”
The DVD is fun to watch. It has many good features, including “Better Together: The Story of Magnum, P.I. Season Two”, deleted scenes, the Hawaii Five-0 Crossover episode, gag reel and a fun video diary from actor Stephen Hill (T.C.). This DVD would make a great gift for any drama fan.
Coming to your home screen this September is a hit TV show from CBS Home Entertainment.
Action-packed crime drama Magnum P.I.: Season Two will be arriving on DVD this year on September 1. Starring Jay Hernandez as Tom Magnum, an American hero and Navy SEAL returning from war who uses his military skills to become a private investigator in Oahu, Hawaii.
Magnum P.I.: Season Two
Street Date: September 1, 2020
Description: MAGNUM P.I. is a modern take on the classic series centering on Thomas Magnum, a former Navy SEAL who, upon returning home from Afghanistan, repurposes his military skills to become a private investigator. A charming rogue, an American hero and a die-hard Detroit Tigers fan, Magnum lives in a guest cottage on Robin’s Nest, the luxurious estate where he works as a security consultant to supplement his P.I. business. The “majordomo” of the property is Juliet Higgins, a beautiful and commanding disavowed MI:6 agent whose second job is to keep Magnum in line, with the help of her two Dobermans. When Magnum needs back-up on a job, he turns to his trusted buddies and fellow POW survivors, Theodore “TC” Calvin, a former Marine chopper pilot who runs Island Hoppers, a helicopter tour business, and Orville “Rick” Wright, a former Marine door-gunner-turned-impresario of Oahu’s coolest nightclub and the most connected man on the island. Suspicious of Magnum’s casual attitude and presence at his crime scenes, Detective Gordon Katsumoto finds that he and Magnum are more alike than either of them care to admit. One of Magnum’s biggest supporters is Teuila “Kumu” Tuileta, the unofficial “House Mom” and cultural curator of Robin’s Nest.With keys to a vintage Ferrari in one hand, aviator sunglasses in the other, and an Old Düsseldorf longneck chilling in the fridge, Thomas Magnum is back on the case!
