    CBS is rebooting Magnum PI and there's no Selleck mustache. Without the mustache, it's already a fail.

    And they can't possibly do better than John Hillerman, the original Higgins.

    Hopefully it will have a perfectly diverse cast. :)

    So your saying Rick and Icepick are gay, and that's why they always meet in the steam room?

    Hollywood has run out of ideas. I am sick of all these reboots and Superhero movies!!!!!!

    Magnum PI is one of the best shows ever made. Leave it alone.

    Black dude at the Pollo Tropical I worked at when I was 16 called me Magnum because he thought I looked like Tom Selleck. Only comment I have on this topic.

    I might watch it just for the Hawaii scenery. Maybe Dog the Bounty Hunter will have a cameo in it?

    JTFC. Awful cast, bad acting, just plain stupid. His buddy is getting kidnapped, tossed in an ambulance, then smart guy opens fire. Hey, Thomas. Your friend is in that vehicle you're shooting at.

    I'm dumber for having watched that.

    I’m not one of those guys who clings to the past and has a knee-jerk reaction of “I loved the original Magnum and this show will suck”. Heck, the original Hawaii Five-0 is one of my all time favorite shows, but I still enjoyed the first few seasons of the re-booted series. So I’m not “that guy”.

    I loved the original Magnum. This show will suck.

    This is much more likely to make me watch the original version than actually tune in to the reboot. I didn't realize this was happening.

    If Selleck doesn't have occasional cameos in it, CBS should be napalmed.

    Why does Hollywood work so hard to ruin old shows. I mean after a few hundred tries to reboot their past shows you have to wonder given the dismal rate of success.

    BTW, I caught the episode of "Survivor" last night and it seemed the casting on that has taken a big hit as well.

    I just read that this will be a tv movie, not a series. Perhaps it launches into a series, if received well. But, for now, just a 2 hour waste of time.

    I kind of like it. Not a fan of Selleck anyway so it's no biggie. But like the original Higgins better.

    Liked the original Hawaii Five O but, damn, O'Loughlin is FINE for the eyes. Wood.

    Why not. They put Jimmy Buffett in some Hawaii Five O ones.

    I was nicknamed Magnum too, usually my girlfriends, but I don't look anything like Selleck. RollLaugh

    Higgins should be played by Tom Selleck. That would work.

    The new intro will eventually have Magnum holding a guy in the pool and looking at his ass....you know, like the old fashioned Magnum did with a chick. Laughing

    James Caan's son Scott plays Danno. Show has been on for eight seasons now. I watched the first few and lost interest.

    I liked his last series before Hawaii, Moonlight. He played a modern day vampire detective. I thought it was pretty good but it only lasted about ten episodes.
