Trivia

There are some crossovers between Magnum P.I. and Hawaii Five-0 (2010). Lieutenant Yoshi Tenaka states in the first episode, "if this is a kidnapping, it belongs to HPD and Five-O, not some private eye." Appearances are made by Kimee Balmilero as medical examiner Dr. Noelani Cunha, Katrina Law as Five-O's Agent Quinn Liu, and William Forsythe as former private eye Harry Brown, who was close friends with Steve MacGarrett's father. Finally, Taylor Wily returns as Kamekona for several episodes. See more »

This Magnum wasted little time "Jumping the Shark"
25 September 2018 | by Ed-ShullivanSee all my reviews

The Good: 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.

The Bad: 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?

The Ugly: 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.
