The Complete 2nd Season - Silly Higgins! (4/08/2005)
Video:   7/10
Audio:   6/10
Extras:   1/10

Buy from (US)
Summary of "The Complete 2nd Season - Silly Higgins!":
I had hoped we could see some real bonus material for season 2, but Universal has simply used the space on the disc to promote their other titles. It bothers me that one of my favorite shows as a kid may never see any bonus material of any substance. I'd love to hear commentary tracks, or maybe an interview or two. I want to know what the actors are up to, and what they think of the show 20 years later. Looking back on the recent Universal releases, the last set which had any decent bonus material was Las Vegas, and that was in January. I know if Universal put their minds to it they could create some amazing bonus material for their TV sets, as they do for their movies. It may sound as though I'm picking on them, but I have faith that they could put out some of the best DVD sets (content and extras) if they improved in a few areas.

It was great to see some of these episodes again, though we haven't hit some of my personal favorites yet. Hopefully we'll see season 3 before the end of the year. (read entire review)

Summary of "The Complete 1st Season - Nice car!":
I loved this show as a kid, and it's even better now. Universal has done a nice job of putting a set together, though they haven't included any bonus features. The transfer is very good, and the audio is decent. The clothes look a bit dated, but I guess we can't fault the DVD set for that. Magnum fans ordered this set when it first popped up online, but those of you on the fence should pick it up. (read entire review)
