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

John Hillerman was born in 1932. As such, he was 7 years old when World War 2 began and 15 when it ended and too young to have served in the military. He was only 6 years older than Roger E. Mosley, who was born in 1938. Mosley's character TC was said to have graduated college in 1968 and then enlisted in the USMC, however this would have made him age 30 instead of the normal age 22. Even though they were presumed to be about the same age due to their military service at the same time, Mosely was 7 years older than Tom Selleck and 9 years older than Larry Manetti. See more »
Magnum,P.I. was and will remain the best TV series ever. It had it all: action, humour, tragedy and characters you believe in. No TV series will ever reach Magnum,P.I.'s quality. To all who have been involved in the creation of this fabolous icon of the 80s: Thank you!
