When every other adolescent male of the ’80s and I grew up, we wanted the life of Tom Magnum, played by Tom Selleck and his mustache: living in an opulent Hawaii beach house as a guest of a never-present millionaire novelist and driving his Ferrari 308 GTS; wracking up a never-to-be-paid tab at the country club run by one war-vet buddy and bumming helicopter rides from another; and periodically solving mysteries using a combination of smarts, toughness and mostly chutzpah. I never did figure out how to walk that particular career path, but it was fun to dream.

This was definitely one of my favorites……….

  1. Magnum, P.I. was a great show. I loved how he carried his 1911 in the back of his pants. How about the series Tour of Duty for retro TV? I love the opening theme Paint it Black…

  2. Not bad to look at either!

watcha gotta say?
