As far as I’m concerned, there never has been and there never will be a show as wonderful as Magnum P.I. It actually gets better as time goes on. So does Tom, who has proved he’s more than just machismo on a stick (but I’m not complaining about that!). His likable persona and extraordinary talent have kept him going strong on the big and small screen for three decades! There’s something so guy-next-door about him and I think he deserves every bit of success he’s ever had.
Currently Hulu is hosting the pilot and various episodes from the first season of Magnum. Watch and learn.
And don’t forget you can rent/stream all eight seasons of Magnum on Netflix! YAY!
Also, please check out Magnum Mania, which is an incredible Magnum fansite!
One of Tom's first appearances was in the 1970 TV movie The Movie Murderer, and he got a nifty "Introducing" credit. Greatness was waiting just around the corner! Strangely enough, this thriller also featured Elisha Cook, whom Magnum fans will instantly recognize as Icepick! Co-inky-dink or kismet?
I hope that Tom has a wonderful birthday with his family and friends. The fans are celebrating right along with you, Mr. Selleck! And here’s to 65 more!
