      Season 3 – Magnum, P.I.

      1982 Crime Drama List
      Reviews 90% Fewer than 50 Ratings Audience Score This series makes the most of its Hawaiian setting by sending private eye Thomas Magnum all over Oahu righting wrongs -- at least when he isn't dealing with security at the posh estate (dubbed Robin's Nest) of absentee owner, and celebrated-but-unseen author, Robin Masters and clashing with stuffy British butler Higgins. T.C. and Rick, buddies from Magnum's days in the military, help him out with cases. Magnum is provided nearly unlimited use of many of Masters' luxury items, including a Ferrari.

      Previous Eric Mink St. Louis Post-Dispatch Occasionally, the show takes a delightful turn... Most of the time, though, "Magnum" simply succeeds at what it is: light entertainment. It aspires to nothing greater and doesn't need to. Jan 14, 2021 Full Review People Staff People Magazine It's all good fun, especially guest star Morgan Fairchild as a larcenous socialite who believes charity proceeds belong at home-hers.
