I hope it gets released soon in R1. I know this'll probably be the set affected by music replacement, but I think I'll have to overlook it. I'm mainly curious as to how they'll handle the crossover with Simon & Simon. We have the complete crossover already on season 1, so will they give it to us again, or will the one in the set be the syndicated version?

Why do you think this'll be the set affected by music replacement? I'm a fan of the show, but I'm not familiar enough to follow your reasoning.

As for Simon and Simon, do you suppose they could give us some kind of seamless-branching option to watch either version?

Well, I'm not sure exactly which season it happens, but popular music becomes much more prevalent in later seasons. Nothing in Universal's TV on DVD history suggests they'll get the music cleared.

Well, I'm sure some will be pissed that I even brought it up so soon, but it's something to keep in mind. I'd almost say to expect it. Miami Vice seems to be the only exception, and it's too early to say even there. After all, as Edward pointed out, Quantum Leap S1 was okay.

I was more familiar with Quantum Leap and couldn't take the music replacement, but I'll just have to overlook it with Magnum. Music was replaced in Quincy, and it wasn't extremely noticeable. I think it was just about every time Quincy was in Danny's, but I don't have a way of knowing what the music was supposed to be there. It really does change the mood when they do this, though.

I didn't really pay attention to the music while watching Magnum on A&E, so I might not really notice replacements unless the music that ends up being used is REALLY out of place, like the generic instrumental crap supposedly used for Quantum Leap.

I actually appreciate you bringing it up so soon so I can wait for a review or two before buying this time (which I had not done with the previous releases).

I wish there was a resource that listed all of the songs linked with the episode in which they appear, like there is for Quantum Leap. The closest I know of is here:

http://www.magnum-pi.de/music.php

There was quite a bit of music in the show, but this list doesn't tell where too much of it can be found.

By the way, I'm listening to the original theme on that site. The well-known Magnum theme is a classic, but I love the original as well.

I'm very interested in how they're going to handle this here in R2, the season 1 released here did NOT include the Simon & Simon crossover episode -- so I'm praying that they're considerate enough to include it on the upcoming season 3 release...

I guess a R1 announced can't be far behind, I guess this means I'd better get the first 2 sets soon.

Simon & Simon hasn't even been mentioned, I don't think, but you don't have to worry about Rockford. It hasn't been announced, but it's part of the trailer at this site:

http://www.mcclouddvd.com/

Clips are shown, the theme is heard, the number of episodes in the season 1 box are listed, and cover art is even shown.

The most prevelant "popular" music in Season 3 was a generic cover band playing "Satisfaction" over and over during "Did You See The Sunrise?" Since it isn't the original artist, I'm guessing music clearances would be easier.

Do you know when music started being more prevalent?

I remember John Denver during "Limbo" (end of season 7) and Genesis during season 8. There was also an episode with a Vietnam vet turned DJ but I forget what music they used and what season there was.

Other than that, I can't recall much in the way of popular music during the run of Magnum.

That's good. Sometimes, a small amount of music can squeak by (or, at least, it becomes less of a distraction if only a little is replaced). For example, the A-Team S2 has a scene where the Police's original version of Roxanne plays on a radio and it is there on the DVD. A Joey Scarbury song plays in the last episode, and it's intact as well.

I'm kinda amazed that multitracks of the audio still exist that enable them to replace music! I mean it seems like some shows can't even find the original master videotapes, but they have no problems finding the audio if there's an expensive song that needs to be replaced!

More on topic, I am surprised that Did You See The Sunrise? wasn't a cliffhanger and a season opener. I skipped the first two seasons but this was a classic two parter... I might check this third season out.

Sunrise was originally feature-length, and I'm certain that's how it'll be on the set. Universal's good about that.
