Magnum P.I. (TV)

"She's all yours. Knock yourself out, Magnum."

Aloha! Tom Selleck portrayed the Hawaiian shirt-clad private investigator Thomas Sullivan Magnum IV in the 1980s show Magnum, P.I.. Living in a posh Hawaiian beach house as the guest of a rich author, he does what he pleases in exchange for keeping the house secure. Such activities include hanging with his buddies, fellow Navy veterans, and romancing beautiful women. Magnum, P.I. was noted for being among the first TV shows to positively explore how a Vietnam vet adjusted to civilian life. And, as this era refuses to let any 80s cop drama stay dead, there's a movie adaptation starring Matthew McConaughey due in 2008.
