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
Series background actress Shirley Rogers appears in the infamous 'snorkel shot' which features in the opening title sequence of the series, where Magnum is teaching her how to snorkel. She is stretched out face down in the water. Magnum is cradling her while she is kicking. He sneaks a peek at her derrière and reacts. In 2017, Tom Selleck explained on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert (2015) that he intended his reaction to be an aside for the crew but it was decided to use it in the show. The scene itself is from the episode 'Three Minus Two'. Ironically, Rogers is not credited with this appearance, but was credited for another appearance in 'Don't Say Goodbye'. She is also visible in crowd shots in 'All Roads Lead to Floyd'. 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?
