Thomas Sullivan Magnum, IV is an ex-Navy "NIA" (ONI) Captain and Vietnam Special Ops veteran who resigned his commission at age 33 because he never got to be 23.

Aside from his trademark Detroit Tigers cap, Magnum also wore a US Navy ball cap. The name and logo were those of VM-02, a unit located at Da Nang Air Base, a US military complex located in Vietnam during the war. It's the designation for Marine Corp Helicopter Observation Squadron 02 which, really was based in Da Nang, Republic of Vietnam from 1965 to 1971. T.C. wears that ball cap as well. See more »
Why do I like this t.v. show? First of all Tom selleck is not an actor, he is Magnum P.I. (unforgettable the episode where is lost in the ocean and risked to be eaten by jaws) Second point: Higgins is a perfect characterization of british irony. Third: Hawaii. Fourth: Ferrari. Is that enough?
