Magnum was a private investigator with an enviable
arrangement. In return for helping with the security
arrangements for guarding the estate of wealthy writer
Robin Masters (never seen on the show), he was provided
with free living quarters at the rambling beachfront
property on Oahu's north shore. Masters was always away,
leaving his stuffy British manservant, Higgins, to run
the estate. The laid-back life-style of Magnum was in
direct opposition to the strict military dicpiline that
ruled Higgins' life, and there was constant bickering
between them, though there was clearly a deep-seated
mutual affection. Magnum much like others in law enforcement,
had a style all his own, where as today one may can get
an online criminal justice degree and miss out on all
the field experience. Which would seem like a
very dull show had that been Magnum's case.
