Simon & Simon fans who also enjoy Magnum P.I. will certainly like this news! The 2nd season of Simon & Simon opened with the second half of a two-part story, that concluded a crossover with a Magnum P.I. episode which had aired earlier that night. Morgan Fairchild guest-starred in both parts of the story, as we detailed in our Magnum news post.[br]
Although the Magnum episode, "Ki'I's Don't Lie," was a 3rd-Season episode for Tom Selleck's series, it is being included as part of a special bonus disc in the Sept. 7th release of Magnum, P.I. - The Complete 1st Season. For the first time in 22 years, fans will get to see that episode as orginally broadcast, with the bad guy getting away at the end, and with the chase being taking up in the Simon & Simon episode "Emeralds are Not a Girl's Best Friend". So both parts of the story - "Ki'I's Don't Lie" and the Simon & Simon episode "Emeralds are Not a Girl's Best Friend" - WILL be included on this bonus DVD in the Magnum release (additionally, another two-parter from Magnum's 5th season, guest-starring Sharon Stone, will be included on the bonus disc in the Magnum, P.I. - The Complete 1st Season set).
If you're a huge Simon & Simon fan, and have been on-the-fence about whether or not to buy the Magnum DVDs, then this ought to close the deal for you. Good job, Universal Studios...please think along these lines for the planned DVD releases of The Bionic Woman!
