All episodes from the 1980-1981 season were altered for syndication. The original opening sequence and opening and closing themes were replaced by the more familar 1981-1988 opening sequence and opening and closing themes by Mike Post and Pete Carpenter. See more »
Magnum,P.I. was and will remain the best TV series ever. It had it all: action, humour, tragedy and characters you believe in. No TV series will ever reach Magnum,P.I.'s quality. To all who have been involved in the creation of this fabolous icon of the 80s: Thank you!
