There has been talk of many super action heros on television, Starsky and Hutch, The A Team and Doctor Sloane to say a few. But in my opinion this video collection is the quintessential viewing for anyone desperatly searching for perfection in the identity of a hero. Thomas Magnum( played excellently by Tom Selleck) is a private investigator funded by the multi millionaire writer Robin Masters, which has its purks such as the use of a rather nice Ferrari. However the keeper of the house, Higgins, begrudges these priviledges and the conflict results in superlative viewing. The set is Hawaii, a haven for ex military veterans, which introduces us to the good friends rick and TC, who fought so valiantly in Vietnam.
All nine episodes are classics in themselves but two of the best scenes to look out for are firstly Magnum's smile in the second episode( I don't want to spoil it by saying any more) and the result of the fight with Ted Danson's character, yes Ted Danson. This video is what dreams are made of, what more can I say?
