Welcome Steve-O!

I heartily second marlboro's comment..great first post.

Also, I'll add, very well written, interesting history you present.

Don't want to get long winded here myself, so will just verify your sentiment that some of us (me!) are a little envious of your position concerning seeing 40 (or any number for that matter... :lol: ) or so episodes fresh for the very first time. Enjoy!

Really like your avatar, as you say, fits exactly right into the theme of things. You need a cap with that..... :) .

Looking forward to seeing more from you..so don't be a stranger and be sure to add your take on the "new" episodes you are able to fit into your schedule.

Aloha! :magnum:

Hello.

I've visited here quite a few times over the years. It's a nice, informative site.

Magnum P.I. was one of my favourite shows back in the early 80's. Although I was never obsessed and didn't have any urge to emulate Magnum himself, I ended up getting a beach-front "estate" (poor man's version :wink: - though actually more acreage than the real Robin Masters' estate ), a "surf-ski equivalent", "Rolex-esque" dive watch, camera equipment with telephoto lenses, dive gear, a computer room much better than the Dracos III and nearly everything else you could find on Robin Masters' estate (except the Ferrari - my version being a vintage 50's VW Beetle) . I'll soon be getting "the Lads" - a couple goats, to patrol my "estate". (Kudu bucks, that'll probably eat my "prize-winning flowers")

You could say I'm "Magnum P.E.I."

'What's that sound?.....I know exactly what it is.....a kudu bock calling to it's mate!' No wait...it's one of Magnum Mania's newest members! :lol:

Kidding aside...welcome to the mania!

Do we get to see pics of your beach front property? :D

Do you want to "see the sunrise"? (......BANG!!) :D

That's my tree - a winter sunrise. It's not Hawaii, but then again, what is?

Edit: This forum doesn't autosize large photos to fit?

Hello! I have been posting a bit but did not see this thread before now. In the 1980s MPI was a pretty regular staple in our household. I was just a girl then and in the ensuing years I have not been into the show, but in recent months I somehow got a hankering for it and bought the DVD set. Now I am a full on fan again!

From childhood, I can mostly only recall two episodes that really stuck with me over the years to the point where I had forgotten where I saw them: I recalled one as a war movie with a scene showing prisoners being tortured in cages and blood jetting out of some guy's body while another guy yelled "Stick your finger in it!" Something about the horror of this embedded itself in my mind and much to my surprise on recent viewing I realized it was in fact an episode of MPI ("Did You See the Sunrise" in fact, now one of my favorites). The other was a shadowy memory of a "native's" bead-bedecked leg slipping through the darkness after somebody, and the knowledge that this was a Mau Mau. I recalled this being very scary and yes indeed it turned out to be "Black on White." Again I recalled it as a movie, not an episode of MPI. Funny how images make such an impression.

Anyway, what else to say? I live in Texas. Higgy Baby is my favorite character, in fact when I was a kid he was my whole family's favorite character. My father, a retired Marine sergeant who served in the Pacific in WW2, would even refer to him as Higgy Baby. Have not been to Hawaii but plan to go this spring or fall.
