    ... about as useful as tits on a bull




    also, i'm still pissed off at no mustache.

    and I just came across an article about how the reboot was going to be centered around Magnum's daughter Lily, and her coming back to Hawai'i to take over Magnum's P.I. firm.
    see, THAT would have been neat. I'd even say it would work with a couple of her "buddies" being chicks, as well as guys.

    The next time I watch the show and she makes an appearance, I'll make note of her show name.

    There's a Magnum PI fan site and no mention of this though.

    Orson Welles (voice only)
    Angela Lansbury (Murder She Wrote - did a crossover show with Magnum)
    Elisha Cook Jr (repeated appearances)
    Carol Burnett
    Cesar Romero
    Ernest Borgnine
    Sharon Stone (first 'shower scene' with Magnum on primetime TV)
    Jose Ferrer
    Ian McShane
    Ted Danson (played a bad guy lol)
    Pat Morita (Happy Days . then Karate Kid master)
    Morgan Fairchild
    Shannon Daugherty (90210)

    I SWEAR I saw Larry Minetti (Rick in the orignal) in short cameo scene in the first one, but I cannot find it listed.

    And just because they called it Magnum, and BARELY followed the old series, honestly they did not.

    But thing about it.

    Would Hawaii Five O - the original, not the remake work with today's Millenials? Doubtful.

    The audience WATCHING TV series these days is COMPLETELY different that the audience back in the 70's and the 80's. Just not the same viewing audience.

    Not good, not bad. Just the fact that technology has changed the world, FOREVER.

    We can't 'go home again' as it were to the OLD MAGNUM. You can buy the complete series and watch to your hearts content.

    But for the NEW Magnum, well it's like I tell the wife. "Some times, you just have to let art flow over you"

    Pre-season I thought this show would last 4 episodes or less and be cancelled. I do not watch much broadcast TV, I failed to take into account how bad everything else is, thus making this look good.

    I heard when you bought a 488 Spider in 1980-1988, you got a free USP. I missed out.

    There was enough from the old show to carry forward with out trying to "remake" anything. It could have been a continuation. Magnum had a daughter. I know some fans were hoping to see a "reboot" involve her, and they could have done that, or cast his daughter (a female) as the primary role. (Female detective in Hawaii). By doing that they could have kept the fans of the original show interested. A guest appearance now and then by Tom or someone, and it could be a hit.

    I think the point is, they tried to remake the original, and like other stuff, it's failing miserably. Whoever the target audience is, knows zero about what it used to be, so why bother try to make it over. The first episode is a weak attempt at trying to redo the original series' first episode. The first episode was a 2 part show, the remake was 40 minutes of just nothing.

    I say again, the point where the new Magnum jumps out of the car onto the helicopter just lost it for me.
