||Hawaiian-set detective program MAGNUM P.I. was a huge hit during the 1980s, finishing in the top 20 shows during the first five seasons it aired. Tom Selleck, who won an Emmy in 1984 for his performance, plays Thomas Magnum, a Vietnam Vet who retires from the military and moves to the Pacific islands to start a private detective agency. His allies include a couple of army buddies who also live on the islands, and proper former British army officer Jonathan Higgins, caretaker of the mansion where Magnum stays and foil to Magnum's fun-loving ways. In SEASON TWO, Magnum and the other characters were further developed over the 22 episodes, which included guest stars such as Vera Miles, Tyne Daly, Pat Morita, and others. A deft combination of action and mystery coupled with Selleck's humorous and charismatic performances, MAGNUM P.I. is one of television's most entertaining detective shows.
