About the series:

Written by the remarkable Donald P. Bellisario, this series basically relates the life of Thomas Sullivan Magnum (Tom Selleck), a retired U.S. NAVY veteran officer from the Vietnam war. 

Now he lives in Hawaii working to solve mysteries and help people as a Private Investigator ("P.I."). 

The series also includes TC (Roger E. Mosley) and Rick (Larry Manetti) - both Magnum's friends and former Vets from the Navy. Jonathan Quayle Higgins (John Hillerman) is a british majordomo that works for Robin Masters - famous (and incognito on tv) writer who allowed Magnum to live in his mansion and take care of its security after a successful job. There're also Zeus and Apollo: two dobermans ("the lads") that, together with Higgins, will make sure Magnum doesn't empty the wine cellar on the mansion.
