Magnum P.I.: Season 1 - Rotten Tomatoes

Magnum P.I.: Season 1 (2018)



Critic Consensus: The rebooted Magnum P.I. may not be quite distinctive enough to hold up to comparisons with its source material, but a charismatic star, slickly staged action, and a handful of modern twists hint at greater potential.

Critic Reviews for Magnum P.I.: Season 1

All Critics (21) | Top Critics (10)

Hernandez is good in what's otherwise a pallid, uninspired facsimile of the original.

Top Critic

You won't be left with the old Magnum P.I., but something unnatural; an empty, unrecognizable hybrid lurching through the jungle.

September 21, 2018 | Rating: C | Full Review…

For a bit of sea, sun, cartoon violence and some droll throwaway lines for good measure, at least it beats Death in Paradise.

January 17, 2019 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

Cheerfully corny reboot of detective show has some violence.

September 27, 2018 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

If this is just the beginning of all of Magnum's new adventures, I can't wait to see what's next.

September 25, 2018 | Rating: 4.5/5 | Full Review…

The new Magnum P.I. is a fast-moving, flighty field day that honors the original show's snappy spirit.

September 25, 2018 | Rating: 6.3/10 | Full Review…
