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.”

24

“Rembrandt’s Girl” (S4E14)

Carol Burnett locks Magnum in a bank vault! The Ferrari gets towed! Rick and T.C. throw an ’80s party at Magnum’s swinging pad! Higgins hosts a meditation retreat that we suspect is actually an orgy! This episode has it all.

“The Return of Luther Gillis” (S4E16)

It’s time for the return of everyone’s favorite “Magnum” recurring character… Scrungo! Also Luther Gillis is back, and there’s a shifty hot dog entrepreneur/computer P.I. Also in this episode of “Magnum, podcast,” we introduce a Very Important New Segment all about the many hats of Thomas Magnum.

22

“I Do?” (S3E17)

Magnum gets married! But it’s all a trick! This episode is an awful lot like the episode we watched last week, come to think of it. Phil has a lot to answer for. Jason, meanwhile, gets very excited about more late-night sports telecasts.

21

“Of Sound Mind” (S3E13)

This podcast will be our last will and testament. But there’s always a twist! This episode, made in 1982, is strangely reminiscent of two 2019 Oscar nominees. And also an episode of “Scooby Doo.”

20

“A Sense of Debt” (S4E8)

It’s the episode where Magnum goes to Detroit to watch an entire Tigers homestand and ends up meeting star players Lou Whitaker and Alan Trammell! Unfortunately, that’s about five minutes of this episode—the rest of it involves T.C. becoming an underground boxer in order to protect Shannen Doherty and her dad because he accidentally drove the Ferrari into a bunch of pigs. Pretty typical stuff.

19

“The Arrow That Is Not Aimed” (S3E14)

Legendary actor Mako appears in this episode that is the height of 1980s obsession with Japanese culture. Magnum meets a samurai who is about to commit seppuku because he’s lost a priceless ancient Japanese plate. There are Limo Ninjas! Also, Higgins may have murdered Magnum at the end.

18

“J. ‘Digger’ Doyle” (S1E17)

In a spin-off attempt that went nowhere, we get to meet J. “Digger” Doyle, played by Erin Gray right between her roles in “Buck Rogers” and “Silver Spoons.” We do an awful lot of Orson Welles impressions. Jason is frustrated by Higgins’s flagrant cock-blocking of Magnum. And what is this awful laser-related fiction Robin Masters is dictating?

17

“One More Summer” (S2E17)

Magnum and T.C. walk on to an NFL team during training camp, because that’s how football works. Hey, it’s Pat Morita! And Dick Butkus! We invent Higgins’s podcast. And Phil has some very important Fritz Feld follow-up.

16

“Forty” (S7E17)

Magnum turns 40 and stalks a woman from a boat offshore, as you do. Typical stuff.

15

“Operation: Silent Night” (S4E10)

It’s Christmas in July as we take on a rare holiday-themed episode! T.C. is going home for Kwanzaa, but first he has to drop off Rick, Higgins, and Thomas on various Hawaiian islands. Of course, things don’t go according to plan and they get stuck on Fake Kaho’olawe, discover a crashed Japanese plane, bicker and bond before discovering the true meaning of the holidays. Oh, and there’s a bunch of dumb stuff on a Navy ship.

14

“Birdman of Budapest” (S3E16)

The Hungarian Revolution. An elusive bird expert. A… murderous macaw? Just your average wacky episode of “Magnum, p.i.” Whoops! (feathers)
