The episode of the show "Magnum, P.I." 3.02 "Ki'is don't lie" has been compared to the double-episode of the shows "Magnum, P.I." and "Simon & Simon" (3.02 "Ki'is don't lie" and 2.01 "Emeralds are not a girl's best friend").
While the regular episode is found on the UK-box of season 3, the double-episode is found on the bonus features-disc of the US-Box of season 1. Two endings were shot for this episode of the cult show around the excentric private detective. One of them ends the episode, the other one leads over to an episode of "Simon & Simon", where the plot is continued.

US: Higgins comes up to tired Magnum (looks differently from the UK version) and tells him there is going to be another flight to LA in a short while. They argue about who was going to follow Geraldine. Since he feels violated in his honor, Magnum's shoulder is injured and he's being arrested by the police, Higgins takes the flight. The hotel scene is now also shown in the US-version, but in an alternative way. The Simons thank Magnum and promise to take care of HIggins in LA and to look for Cathrine.
