Magnum PI on SABC 3

Entertainment January 25, 2016

About Magnum PI

His name is Thomas Sullivan Magnum, and the edges to his personality areas rough as the rocks of his island — Hawaii. Magnum is one of the most unique private investigators to hit the television screen in a long time.

Show Details

Magnum, known as “TS” to his friends, is just an ordinary guy trying to make ends meat. He’s a man who enjoys a champagne existence on a beer budget, but he doesn’t seem to mind. Actually, his life is quite nice at the moment, since he is living as a guest on the private beach of one of the finest estates in Hawaii. Not only does he live rent free, but he liberally enjoys the hospitality offered him — including the guest house, the pool, the $60,000 red Ferrari, and a varied assortment of beautiful women. Magnum has the run of the absent owner’s property: literally the “man who came to dinner,” Magnum is the guest who won’t leave.

But there is a catch; Magnum, former Naval intelligence officer who specialized in security, does have a job to do. He has been hired by his host, playboy Robin Masters, to use his expertise in guarding the estate — especially when Masters’ friends, who range from oil sheiks to stewardesses, use the place as a retreat.


Lest Magnum lose sight of the fact that he is a mere mortal, he has a number of associates to remind him, led by Ex-Sergeant Major Higgins (John Hillerman) and his Dobermans, Zeus and

Appollo. Higgins has travelled to the corners of the earth and has retained everything he has ever read, heard or seen. He is a constant source of information and irritation to Magnum. Higgins was hired by Robin Masters as the estate’s Major Domo, and his job is to see that the guests are well taken care of. Naturally, he sees Magnum as an intruder upon his territory as well as a freeloader. The dogs, of course, see him as lunch.

TC (Roger Mosley), one of Magnum’s ex-Viet Nam friends and a top-notch helicopter pilot, is often a reluctant recruit in his cases. TC provides a blunt contrast to Magnum’s suave exterior; he also provides a cheap, quick way to get around the island when on an investigation that is, when TC has gas money, because Magnum is always broke.


When he isn’t working on a case, Magnum can sometimes be found at Rick’s (Larry Manetti) place, a 1980’s version of Rick’s Cafe American in the movie Casablanca. Rick’s connections on all levels throughout the islands are notorious but extremely useful to Magnum when working on a case.



Magnum may not be as finely tuned as the Ferrari or as disciplined as he once was as a Naval officer, but in spite of all his rough edges, he is still a man of conviction who will stop at nothing to vindicate a client, friend, or principle he believes in. He has a degree of naiveté that keeps his ego intact, and a certain innocence that gives, him an optimistic outlook on life. Magnum doesn’t want to be a hero; he just wants to lead an almost fantasy existence among the soft breezes, white sands, and tropical forests of the beautiful Hawaiian Islands. Of course, that alone can lead to some very interesting developments.
