Jesse Stone

Although you may still think of Tom Selleck as the lovable Thomas Magnum in his 1980’s hit TV show Magnum P.I., Selleck , as an older, weathered man, is still upholding the law in his Jesse Stone series. From the novels of Robert B. Parker, Selleck plays Jesse Stone, the police chief of a small New England town. He is a flawed, mournful man, yet still rebellious, demanding that the town council accept him and his methods on his terms, not theirs. Sellecks’ Jesse is a quiet, thoughtful man who provides a sense of comfort and solace to those deserving but doesn’t fail to get the bad guy and ensure that they get the kind of punishment they deserve. So far there are six Jesse Stone movies all of which are great fun to watch. If you haven’t seen them yet, give them a try; and if you have, enjoy them all over again!
