** The Region 1 DVD version of "The Man From Marseilles" is missing the entire scene where Lt. Tanaka speaks with Jean Claude Fornier in French. Syndication and Region 2 [=DVDs=] have it intact.
** The Region 1 DVD version of "L.A." is missing Magnum's foot chase after his rental car's blown up. In the original broadcast he runs through several yards, one of which where he has a short conversation with a woman in a hot tub. Also cut was the BrickJoke with the same woman interviewed on a news broadcast, claiming Magnum had tried to attack her. Again, syndication and Region 2 [=DVDs=] have these intact.
