Your all time favorite TV show.

Post by 4hams on Sat Mar 06, 2010 11:44 am

Hey folks what is your all time favorite TV show? Having members from all over the world should make this an interesting thread. Do folks from Aus get some of the same shows as we do in Canada or elsewhere? How many of the British sitcoms are watched here in north america?

My favorite show was and still is Magnum P.I. I thought the character higins or (Higgy baby) as the character TC use to refer to him was a hoot!

Thomas Magnum is employed on the Hawaiian estate of a wealthy absentee owner name Robin Masters. The estate is run by Jonathan Higgins who mostly tolerates Magnum's presence as head of security on the estate. Magnum is also a private detective whose cases frequently have a humorous overtone and always just enough danger. Written by S.E. Cook.

Thomas Sullivan Magnum, IV grew up with a father in the Navy, who died when he was ten, and entered the Naval Academy at 18. Magnum, a third generation Naval officer, graduated the Academy, became a Navy Seal, and was sent to Vietnam. He made two life-long friends, Theodore "TC" Calvin and Orville "Rick" Wright, while serving in Vietnam. After the war, Magnum was transferred to Naval Intelligence, and stationed in Pearl Harbor. His buddies retired from the military. TC opened up a helicopter tour guide service, while Rick was a club manager. At the age of 33, Magnum woke up one morning and realized he was never 23. He quit the Navy, got a PI license and opened a practice in Hawaii. He was eventually hired by a world-renowned author and playboy, Robin Masters, to monitor security at Robin's Nest, a huge estate on the north shores of Oahu. Robin Masters would jet from one part of the world to another, and visit his various estates, and write best selling novels. Robin's Nest is run by Jonathan Quayle Higgins III, a proper Englishman. Higgins was in lineage of a Duke and served in the Royal Army as a Sergeant Major. Magnum lives in Robin's guest house, and drives Robin's Ferrari. As a result, Higgins treats Magnum as a leech; however deep down they have great respect for each other. The series follows Magnum on his various adventures, involving clients, guests staying on the estate, or plots involving his days in Vietnam. Magnum requires assistance occasionally from his friends, TC, Rick, Asst. D.A. Carol Baldwin, his buddies in Naval Intelligence; even Higgins lends a hand from time to time.


I always thought it was cool that the character lived for free on an estate in Hawaii, carried a .45 automatic and drove around in one of the following cars from the estate for free.
Season 1: Ferrari 308GTS
Seasons 2-3: Ferrari 308GTSi
Seasons 4-6: Ferrari 308GTSQv
Seasons 7-8: Ferrari 308GTSiQv

So did anyone else watch this show?

Craig I was into that show a few years ago but the day of the week it was on conflicted with other obligations so I have not seen it in a few years now. I really wanted to watch the final season but once again it has been a time thing this season.

A really cool show though.
