Top thirty crime procedurals, #17: Magnum PI

IMDB link.

Basic premise: The greatest Hawaiian based television program not named Lost. (And you weren’t supposed to know Lost was in Hawaii.)

Why it’s here: Tremendous theme music. Also: Tom. Fucking. Selleck. I really don’t think I need to say much more. The only 80s show I liked more was MacGyver.

Why it’s not higher: It honestly doesn’t hold up all that well. For as awesome as he is, Tom Selleck occasionally comes off as a whiny douche bag.
