Trivia

In the original series Magnum P.I. (1980-1988), Magnum saved author Robin Masters life in Vietnam during the war so Robin, as Magnum would call him, let him live in his Hawaii estate with Higgins and the "lads" Zeus and Apollo. .....it's never stated what exactly Thomas did for Robin Masters, he simply did him a favour. It is implied that the favour had to do with security, hence Robin employing Thomas to test the estate's security and allowing him to stay on the estate and evaluate security. See more »

A Previous Reviewer Said it Best: "Magnum PC"
29 September 2018 | by RJBoseSee all my reviews

The original Magnum, PI, featured the physically imposing Tom Selleck as the lead role, a humble, likeable character trying to make it as a private investigator. Set in the 1980s, Magnum and his cohorts were Vietnam veterans, with Higgins, who managed the estate where Magnum stayed as a security consultant, an older WWII veteran of the British armed forces. Much of the charm of the show was the interplay and banter between Higgins and Magnum.

This remake is a travesty, They use the same music, the same helicopter, and the same cast names, but the new version superimposes the current PC dogma, rendering the show unwatchable to fans of the original, and presenting an uninterrupted stream of banal dialogue, ridiculous action sequences, and amateurish screenplay that will not win any new followers.

Magnum himself (6'4" WASP Tom Selleck) has been replaced by a diminutive hispanic actor. Rick, who in the original series was small and suffered from "a glass jaw" often to comedic effect, has been replaced by a new brawny version. The TC character, an African-American role, however, remains curiously consistent under the rules of this PC universe, although the new actor does not have the charm of the original. The most obnoxious casting change is to replace the curmudgeonly Jonathan Quayle Higgins as a yoga-practicing much younger British dish (who does not like tea). Why bother to leave Zeus and Apollo as dobermans?

The new PC Hollywood strictures are very much in evidence: Nuzo, the ill fated white former Marine friend of Magnum, TC and Rick, has an African-American wife, and mixed-race wide-eyed son to fulfill some of the new diversity requirements. There is no doubt about the ethnicity of the villains, however, who are not just caucasian, but are also former US Marines, for good measure- who waterboard people, just in case anyone has missed the ham-handed messaging incorporated into the script.

Will Ice Pick return as a trans-gender mobster? Luther Gillis as a St. Louis-based lesbian?

I won't bother watching to find out.
