    Magnum P.I. Reboot 2018

    Last year it was speculated that some involved with the Fast and the Furious franchise was looking to reboot Miami Vice. Instead they are apparently producing a Magnum P.I. reboot that is to air this fall.
    Here is a bit of a lengthy promo piece.

    A big piece of garbage compared to the original just like the new Hawaii Five-O is compared to the original.

    I rather like the new Hawaii 50 and I hope this new version of Mag PI is just as cool.

    Hell, no Tom Selleck and that is what the show will be measured up to by using the same name. Same with Hawaii Five-O without Jack Lord as the show has been measured up to him and has flunked. Certain shows or movies really should never be remade as their main character is irreplaceable. The main character made the role. Think McQueen in Bullitt, Brando in The Godfather, Wayne in Red River to name one, Gable in Gone with the Wind to name some movies. For a newer movie how about Hamill, Ford and Fisher in Star Wars. In TV it could be Alda in M.A.S.H., Arness in Gunsmoke, O'Connor in ALL in the Family to name some. Remakes almost always fall flat and some flatter than others.

    Alda doesn't quite fit that line - he was the remake, original was Donald Sutherland.

    That is true which is why I said TV. In actuality the TV show is far more iconic than the movie.
