Locked inside their homes with nowhere else to turn, three men embark on a journey to watch selected episodes of one of the greatest TV shows of the 1980s, “Magnum, p.i.” There are a lot of segments.
The Magnum, podcast Holiday Special Featuring Lance White, P.I.
Mele Kalikimaka! It’s our holiday special, in which we watch two episodes of “The Rockford Files” that allow us to discuss the creation and formation of “Magnum, p.i.” The episodes in question are “White on White and Nearly Perfect” (S5E4) and “Nice Guys Finish Dead” (S6e7) featuring Tom Selleck as the luckiest private eye in L.A., Lance White. Consider this a big Christmas stocking stuffed full of new segments. The segments are your presents....
"Tigers Fan" (S8E4)
We wrap up another season of “Magnum, podcast” with another episode about death. It’s Tanaka’s final episode, and what an unsatisfying conclusion it is. But there’s a Jan Hammer-style musical montage, and machine guns, and other things that remind us of “Miami Vice” and not “Magnum, p.i.” Fortunately, there’s also T.C. and Thomas debating the merits of baseball. We could watch that all day. You’ll miss us here at Magnum, podcast, the incoherence, the bizarre segments, the arguments… see you for our holiday special later this year!...
"Foiled Again" (S3E8)
En garde! Dana Wynter returns, but this time she’s a former Higgins crush. Unfortunately, Higgins “accidentally” electrocutes her jerk husband with a fencing foil and is accused of his murder. But maybe the wife did it! Or her son, TV’s Spider-Man, Nicholas Hammond! Or maybe it’s the other guest star who we haven’t accounted for yet! We discuss Magnum’s limp and hand injury, find a lost bikini top, complain about awful looping, have a disagreement about the Atlanta Falcons, and Jason finally reads that listener letter. Also: A big announcement about the future of Magnum, Podcast! (Don’t worry.)...
"Double Jeopardy" (S2E19)
THIS! IS! DOUBLE JEOPARDY! In the first of two episodes featuring Dana Wynter as a guest star, we (once again) discuss how time works, Magnum turns into The Fall Guy, TC has a realization about how boring sets are, Tanaka embodies the spirit of Hawaiian Columbo, and David and Phil pre-empt Jason’s letters segment with segments of their own. Maybe we’ll hear that letter next week. This podcast has bad lighting and an incomprehensible script, but at least it features the Hawaiian coastline!...
"Who Is Don Luis Higgins and Why Is He Doing These Terrible Things to Me?" (S6E19)
More identical Higgins half-brothers! A plot to assassinate a world leader! Dance with me, Agatha!...
"Blood and Honor" (S6E10)
Whoa, Nellie! We’re here for a real barn-burner of a match-up, as the King Kamehameha Club team, down a man, attempts to win the somewhat famous Honolulu Bed Race. But who’s that on the sidelines? It’s Thomas Magnum, dressed in his Naval finery, as if he’s auditioning for a role on “JAG.” JAG. Magnum. JAGnum?...
I was born in 1979 so I didn’t watch much Magnum PI when it came out. I have now seen the series many times and never had anyone to talk about it with, or hear talk about it. I have always wondered if people realized they use the same actors for different roles, or different actors for the same roles etc… This podcast has been amazing. The hosts have answered any questions I’ve ever had in a more than entertaining fashion. If you like Magnum PI and enjoy laughing go no further.
I would like to introduce a new segment, it’s called
“Please start making more of these ASAP!”
Don’t Eat the Snow in Hawaii
A group of funny friends have fun revisiting episodes of ... well, you guessed it. You’ll have fun too, and you’ll be thankful that Magnum ended with season seven and that CBS never tried to reboot it. Ever.
Good times with old television.
“Thank Heaven for the annual clip show” is more like it
I listen to a lot of Incomparable, but apparently not enough! Would have missed this entirely if not for SOMEONE mentioning it in the annual clip show. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. Love, Skeletor
