Magnum's full name is Thomas Sullivan Magnum IV. His hometown was in the Tidewater region of Virginia (thought to be Hampton Roads). He held the rank of Lieutenant in the US Navy at the time of his resignation in 1979. In season two (1981), Magnum is recalled to service with the rank of Commander (skipping the rank of Lt. Commander). He is also briefly recalled to service in season six (1985). Magnum's father, Lt. Thomas Sullivan Magnum III, USN, was a naval aviator killed in the Korean War in 1951. Magnum's grandfather, Captain Thomas Sullivan Magnum Jr., USN, appears in the season eight finale. 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?
