Goofs

When Billy Joe Bob takes TC's chopper, he puts on the pilot's headset. The name D. Jones can be seen on the left ear piece. Presumably, that is the name of the actual pilot- not TC. This appears at the 41 minute mark. See more »

Great start to the second season
11 October 2018 | by DVD_ConnoisseurSee all my reviews

"Billy Joe Bob" is a solid start to this second season of "Magnum, P.I."

With no more opening tease required now that the series had established itself, the episode dives straight into the exciting titles and the "Magnum" theme.

James Whitmore Jr. plays the Billy Joe Bob of the title. It's a good performance and the actor provides a good foil to Selleck's Private Investigator.

John Hillerman is terrific as always.

8 out of 10.
