      Season 8 – Magnum, P.I.

      1987 Crime Drama List
      Reviews 100% 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 Stuart Galbraith The series gradually became surprisingly experimental, with Magnum often breaking the "fourth wall" and addressing the audience through the camera lens. And toward the end of its run it became downright mystical. 3.5/5 Feb 12, 2019 Full Review Josh Jackson Paste Magazine When every other adolescent male of the '80s and I grew up, we wanted the life of Tom Magnum... I never did figure out how to walk that particular career path, but it was fun to dream. Nov 9, 2018 Full Review Next

      Previous Audience Member O MY GAWWD, The best season of all. Tom Selleck produces these episodes and the ideas are fresh, timeless, serious, funny and Tom looks great w his trimmed-up hair. He's finally a grown-up, but still has that 15 yr old's laugh. Good show ole boy! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/09/23 Full Review Audience Member Season 8 seems to be on a much more emotional and personal level than previous seasons. Probably because it was to be the last. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 01/09/23 Full Review Next Post a review
