Magnum P.I. season 5 plot

Here’s the plot of Magnum P.I. from NBC:

"Magnum P.I. is a modern take on the classic series centering on 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 lives in a guest cottage on Robin’s Nest, the luxurious estate where he works as a security consultant to supplement his P.I. business. The 'majordomo' of the property is Juliet Higgins, a beautiful and commanding disavowed MI:6 agent whose second job is to keep Magnum in line, with the help of her two Dobermans.

"When Magnum needs backup on a job, he turns to his trusted buddies and fellow POW survivors Theodore 'TC' Calvin, a former Marine chopper pilot who runs Island Hoppers, a helicopter tour business, and Orville 'Rick' Wright, a former Marine door-gunner-turned-impresario of Oahu’s coolest nightclub and the most connected man on the island. 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!"
