The adventures of a Hawaii based private investigator.
This series featured crossover episodes with Simon & Simon (1981) and Murder, She Wrote (1984). Planned crossovers with The Equalizer (1985) and Quantum Leap (1989) were never finalized.
Thomas Sullivan Magnum III:
One of the cliches of my profession is that to get information from a bartender you have to slip him bills of various denominations. Bills that you can't afford with pictures of unfamiliar presidents and usually for information that isn't worth it.
Despite being only a private detective, Magnum is involved in the deaths of at 15 people during the run of the series. Yet he never faces any criminal prosecution for this, even though at least three of these events were clearly cases of premeditated murder.
All episodes from the 1980-1981 season were altered for syndication. The original opening sequence and opening and closing themes were replaced by the more familar 1981-1988 opening sequence and opening and closing themes by Mike Post and Pete Carpenter.
