I read about the syndicated version in the episode description. What is a syndicated version? Which version is on the Season 3 box? Is there the full version? :?:

The syndicated versions of the episodes are about 5 minutes shorter than they were when they originally ran in prime time. That is so that they can entertain us with even more commercials. :lol:

Sometimes they are lucky and there is 5 minutes of the show that can be cut without being missed. But often, you will hear a reference to a part of an episode that was meant to be included but had to be cut to make room for more commercials. One example of this is The Look, in which the scene where TC goes to visit Maggie to get some info for Magnum was completely left out but TC referred to it later.

Though I don't have any of the DVDs, it is my understanding that they are the full versions of the episodes as they originally ran -- without any commercials at all, of course. :wink:

Hey Klaus,

The syndicated version is a version that is meant to run on its own.

i.e. the original episode of Ki's don't Lie was designed to run before the Simon and Simon crossover episode "Emeralds Are Not a Girls Best Friend", as they both tied in together. At the end of the original episode of "Ki'i's Don't Lie", Catherine escapes with the money, and Higgins goes after her.

So, when Magnum is shown of reruns on networks like Sleuth or Hallmark, it 99.999999999% of the time will not run prior to the Simon and Simon episode.

Plus, a magnum episode wouldn't ever end with the bad guy getting away, so they had to create a version which wraps up the story at the end of Ki'i's Don't Lie. That is the syndicated version which can run on its own and doesn't need the Simon and Simon epiisode to resolve things.

To answer your 2nd question, the episode in Season 3 is they syndicated version. HOWEVER, you can find the original episode and the Simon and Simon crossover on Season One.

Hope this helps!

I assume so. They did very little shooting outside of Oahu. I doubt they would go to the mainland just to shoot this one, brief scene.
