We sense a survivor!
MAGNUM P.I. is a modern take on the classic series starring Jay Hernandez as Thomas Magnum, a decorated former Navy SEAL who, upon returning home from Afghanistan, repurposes his military skills to become a private investigator. A charming rogue, an American hero, and a die-hard Detroit Tigers fan, Magnum has Juliet Higgins and her Dobermans to keep him in line, as well as his trusted buddies and fellow POW survivors TC and Rick when he needs back-up on a job. With keys to a vintage Ferrari in one hand, aviator sunglasses in the other, and an Old Düsseldorf longneck chilling in the fridge, Thomas Magnum is back on the case!
MAGNUM P.I. stars Jay Hernandez, Perdita Weeks, Zachary Knighton, and Stephen Hill.
The action sequences are a little too over-the-top as this pilot tries too hard to live up to the original while appealing to a whole new generation. It lacks the panache of the original but may carve out a following of its own - if Hernandez can charm enough viewers to his Magnum persona.
