January 20, 2009 - Television favorite crime-solving sibling sleuths Rick and A.J. Simon from the classic '80s hit series Simon & Simon are back for more action, mysteries and loads of fun when Simon & Simon: Season Two arrives on DVD for the first time on February 10, 2009 from Shout! Factory and the NBC Universal Television, DVD, Music and Consumer Products Group. Featuring all 22 memorable episodes from the second season, the 6-DVD box set includes an exciting bonus of Magnum P.I. "crossover" episode.
Created by Philip De Guere, the producer of NCIS, JAG and Max Headroom, and starring Gerald McRaney (Jericho, Major Dad, Deadwood) and Jameson Parker (JAG), Simon & Simon was an audience favorite on CBS from 1981 to 1989. This Primetime Emmy®-nominated show follows freewheeling Rick Simon (Gerald McRaney) and his straight-laced brother A.J. as mismatched partners in Simon & Simon, a San Diego based private detective agency. As different as two brothers can be, attorney A.J. wears tailored suits and plays by the rules, while street-smart Vietnam vet Rick sports a cowboy hat, lives on a houseboat in A.J.'s backyard and never met a conspiracy theory he didn't like. The Simon brothers may have been like oil and water, but for the show's fans they were a match made in heaven.
Season Two of Simon & Simon opens with the Simon brothers working on a case that puts them in contact with Thomas Magnum (Tom Selleck). From there Rick and A.J. tangle with psychics, investigate mysterious dolphin killings, tackle pro football, go to Vegas, almost go broke, fall in love and solve all their cases. Season Two features notable guest stars including Eddie Albert, Lisa Eilbacher, Morgan Fairchild, Cleavon Little, Joe Mantegna, Dean Stockwell and Ray Walston, among others. A must have for every fan, this collectible 6-DVD box set is priced for everyone to own at $49.99. Simon & Simon: Season Two is on sale now wherever DVDs are sold and at www.nbcuniversalstore.com.
Magnum P.I. episode "Ki'is Don't Lie": Part 1 of a two-part story that carried over to the first Simon & Simon episode of Season Two.
