#14 Magnum P.I. S6E12 I Never Wanted to go to France Anyway…


Your favorite 80s podcast celebrates Pi day with an episode of Magnum, P.I. and Tom Selleck’s sweet, sweet mustache! Why is there SO much padding in these lines? Is there ANYTHING exciting happening in this action show? Just what the hell is happening here?!



Thanks to Kevin MacLeod for the song!

  1. You guys picked one of the worst episodes of “Magnum P.I.” to review. And season 6? Worst season of the entire series. Why would you not have watched one of the best episodes instead of one of the worst? If you had done even the smallest amount of research, you would have read that the writing of the show went downhill after season 4. As well, you guys are making fun of the voice over monologues? that is one of the Film Noire tropes which is partly what the show “Magnum, P.I.” is playing off of: Film Noire mystery filmed in Hawaii. And Higgins is NOT Magnum’s butler! You guys would do better if you did your research before you make fun of things. It makes you sound uninformed.

    • Here’s 10 great episodes in no particular order. keep in mind that 3 of them are 2-part episodes. You will find that because they are all from earlier seasons that the writing will feel less padded. Honestly, you guys picked one of the WORST episodes ever of Magnum to watch. May I suggest that when you watch future episodes of old tv shows, check out some top 10 lists online for each show and pick from one of those episodes. And maybe read a show’s wikipedia page so you are at least a little familiar with it before you talk about the show.

      1 Magnum P.I. Did You See the Sunrise? (3.1 & 3.2)
      2 Magnum P.I. Memories Are Forever (2.5 & 2.6)
      3 Magnum P.I. The Jororo Kill (2.13)
      4 Magnum P.I. Operation: Silent Night (Xmas episode) (4.10)
      5 Magnum P.I. J. “Digger” Doyle (1.17)
      6 Magnum P.I. Don’t Eat the Snow in Hawaii (Pilot episode) (1.1 & 1.2)
      7 Magnum P.I. Black on White (3.6)
      8 Magnum P.I. Tropical Madness (2.7)
      9 Magnum P.I. No Need to Know (1.5)
      10 Magnum P.I. Try to Remember (2.15)

      Anways, i love the idea of what you guys are doing, going back and watching old 80’s stuff and all. it’s fun. 🙂
