    Default Was Higgins Robin Masters?

    I got to talking about Magnum P.I. with a couple of friends today for no particular reason and we could not remember if it turned out in the end that Higgins was actually Robin Masters. Anyone care to shed any light on this?

    Actually, it was never definitively resolved. In early episodes of Magnum, Tom talked to Robin Masters himself in scenes person to person, though they never showed Robin's face. Later on the writers had Magnum suspect Higgins to be Robin. In the last episode of the series, Higgins 'admits' to be Robin, but then recants the admission.

    So it was never really answered, just one of those running unseen gags like Norm's wife Vera on Cheers or Nile's wife Maris on Frasier. Or Charlie on Charlie's Angels. And so on.

    I think he was, although like VS said, we never found out for sure.

    No way. Higgins hated that Magnum was sloppy, didn't care about military history, and got more ladies. If Higgins was Masters, Magnum would have been kicked out in the first season.
    I don't have a cool signature. Deal with it!

    Nah. Higgins cared for Magnum, Remember the episode when Magnum "came back to life"?

    This has me thinking, why has there never been a Magnum reunion movie? They need to get this done, while everyone is still alive.

    That's a seperate entity though. Nobody from the TV show would be involved. We need a TV movie reuniting the original cast.

    The latest rumor on the movie has Matthew McConaughey playing Magnum.

    Not to change thread gears, but IMHO, I thought Matthew McConaughey would have been a good choice to play Crockett in the Miami Vice movie, based on his (southern) performance in A Time to Kill ... barring the originals, of course.

    I could tolerate Clooney as Magnum (loosely tolerate) but in no way could McConaughey pull it off IMO.

    As stated by someone else, I would like to see the entire original cast do a movie. It could be damn good.
