Frank Sinatra, in his last major acting role (he planned to appear on "Magnum, P.I." again the following season, but Tom Selleck's scheduling conflicts forced the producers to cut back the episodes ...
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. On the beautiful Hawaiian islands, Magnum is a P.I. who enjoys life, his buddies and friends and who works just hard enough to keep it real. Written by
This show is a lotta fun, A and E started running it of late, and tossed in a Magnum Marathon New Years weekend. Very good! Love the 'Raiders' spoof episode, everything with Orson Welles making a cameo at the end(the Real Robin Masters, by the way..), Sinatra's guest starring role, TC and Rick, etc. Higgins was well played by a Texan if you can believe it too.
They do NOT make them like this anymore-what is the closest you can think of? Nash Bridges? And even that isn't up to par compared with Magnum. Fine cast, great locale, humour, etc. by all means, watch this on A and E if you get the chance.
*** outta ****, one of my faves from the '80s.
