Follows a locally born and bred S.W.A.T. lieutenant who is torn between loyalty to the streets and duty to his fellow officers when he's tasked to run a highly-trained unit that's the last stop for solving crimes in Los Angeles.
Starting over isn't easy, especially for John Nolan who, after a life-altering incident, is pursuing his dream of joining the LAPD. As their oldest rookie, he's met with skepticism from those who see him as just a walking midlife crisis.

Brilliant, brash, and charming, Dr. Bull is the ultimate puppet master as he combines psychology, human intuition, and high-tech data to learn what makes jurors, attorneys, witnesses, and the accused tick.
The Naval Criminal Investigation Service's Office of Special Projects takes on the undercover work and the hard to crack cases in LA. Key agents are G. Callen and Sam Hanna, streets kids risen through the ranks.
A spin-off of NCIS (2003) about the local field office of NCIS that investigates criminal cases involving military personnel in The Big Easy, a city known for its music, entertainment and decadence. This colorful city that harbors a dark side is a magnet for service personnel on leave, and when overindulgence is followed by trouble, Special Agent Dwayne Pride's team is at its best.

This Magnum wasted little time "Jumping the Shark"
Hawaii's natural landscape in high definition color is so beautiful who wouldn't want to spend some time there so why not film another TV crime/action series there? There is also sufficient eye candy for both sexes. Men in the buff and shirtless and women in skin tight spandex stretching and strutting as they walk away from the cameras.
This pilot episode introduces the viewing audience to the key players. Thomas Magnum (Jay Hernandez), Juliet Higgins (the token Brit, Perdita Weeks), T C Calvin (Stephen Hill), and Orville "Rick Wright (Zachary Knighton). I find it just amazing that these thirty something characters have all completed a long and illustrious military career and now run successful businesses. No one is fat and bald, no one is suffering from PTSD, and no one is married with children?
In the popular comedy/family (1974-1984) TV series Happy Days, at least the producers waited until the last 11th season of the series to have the Fonz (Henry Winkler) literally water ski in his customary iconic jeans and leather jacket as we witness him "jumping the shark" to kill the Happy Days TV series once and for all. Now we have Thomas Magnum in the very first pilot episode jump from his moving Ferrari onto the hood of the villain's truck that is shooting at him and chasing his car to jump on to the talon of a flying helicopter before the bad guys truck falls off of the side of the road and into the ocean.
If you enjoy gorgeous landscapes, sex appeal, and you can ignore dumb plots and even dumber action scenes than welcome to the reincarnation of Magnum P.I. I give the series a 6 out of 10 rating.
