Magnum P.I.: Season 1 (2018 - 2019)


Season 1
Magnum P.I.

Critics 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.

Audience Reviews for Magnum P.I.: Season 1

  • Jul 03, 2021
    Absolutely garbage acting, scripts and characters. No comparison to original series. What a waste of time to watch.
  • Apr 19, 2021
    I purchased the entire season one and am already feeling buyers remorse. One of the things about original Magnum that got so annoying was the constant mooching, bartering, bullet holes and taking advantage of friends financially. It left a sour taste in my mouth because it was so overdone. I'm hoping that the hint of this behavior isn't as prevalent in the remake. It almost ruined the original show for me, since the discipline that a navy officer has ingrained wasn't so much in the civilian Magnum. And for a former intelligence officer, the bad guys got the drop on magnum way too often. Added side note: a red Ferrari isn't a good car for surveillance. I know it is TV fiction, but come on! Some common sense, please.

    Meh - it has lots of flash but none of the character of the original. Slap on some mandatory political correctness by changing some genders and here you go.
  • Jan 31, 2021
    Higgins as a woman to me is stupid. She is a good actress, but my brain see Higgins only with John Hillerman face
  • Dec 27, 2020
    What's there not to like? Love every season. Great story line. Plus it's beautiful Hawaii how can you go wrong?
  • May 25, 2020
    Best serie ever, thanks to great actors and a wonderfull script
  • May 12, 2020
    Magnum P.I. will be my favorite TV show now and forever.
  • Feb 07, 2020
    No.... Take the name of an iconic tv show idea from the past and stick it on some poor immitation. No thanks. If they had made the show stand on its own merits maybe it could work. ..but no thanks

    I am part of the generation Tom Selleck and didnt't think that a remake of Magnum would be anything worthwhile watching. But its the opposite, the stories are all different, Lady Higgins is a cool idea and the new Magnum has a different but also nice charm. Hopefully they continue with the show.

    It's bright and relaxing, the characters are lovable and the scenery - absolutely spectacular. Unlike many other detective series this one doesn't make you feel sad, or angry, it doesn't give you wild sex, rivers of blood or the thrilling taste of fear, but it does give you something better - it leaves you with a sort of sunny aftertaste, this great feeling of things gone right and justice served. This is a film, where friends always have your back, where the heroes don't always obey the law, but listen to their heart and always act according to their code of honor.
