Thomas Magnum is employed on the Hawaiian estate of a wealthy absentee owner name Robin Masters. The estate is run by Jonathan Higgins who mostly tolerates Magnum's presence as head of security on the estate. Magnum is also a private detective whose cases frequently have a humorous overtone and always just enough danger. Written by

The Da Nang ball caps sometimes worn by Magnum and T.C. bare the designation VMO-2. This is the designation for Marine Corp Observation Squadron 2 which really was based in Da Nang, Republic of Vietnam from 1965 to 1971. See more »

Boy, do I love 80's shows. They had everything-action, women in bikinis, bad guys, cool cars, they had the lot.
In my opinion, this series was Tom Selleck's finest hour. Magnum P.I. lived in a mansion in Hawaii where he had to put up with Higgins who was looking after the house for Mr. Masters. Both had respect for each other obviously but they were always getting on each other's nerves and Magnum also had to put up with two dogs-Zeus and Apollo if my memory serves me correctly-who didn't like him at all.
Of course, like most 80's heroes Magnum had a cool car which he used to parade around Hawaii solving all types of cases involving crooks both small-time and big time. Magnum used to investigate the cases and then engage in a good old fight at the end.
All in all, a good show. And who can forget Magnum's shirts?
