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.

Aside from his trademark Detroit Tigers cap, Magnum could also be seen wearing a US Navy ball cap. The name and logo on the cap were those of VM-02, a unit located at Da Nang Air Base, a US Military complex located in Vietnam during the war. This is the designation for Marine Corp Helicopter Observation Squadron 02 which really was based in Da Nang, Republic of Vietnam from 1965 to 1971. TC was frequently depicted wearing this unit ball cap as well. 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!
