Kinda looking forward to this:

Watched many an episode of the original when I was a kid back in the 80s.

Higgins is no longer a stuffy old British guy...Higgins is now a hot younger British woman...

And the ferrari..."I need a new car"...

You gotta be kidding me??
That was one of my favorite shows back in the day.
I will probably check it out, but I think this was one of the shows that didn’t need to be remade with that kind of far fetched action in it.
I mean, come on....put Bruce Willis in that trailer and you have another Die Hard sequel. LOL

Did you see the sunrise this morning?

Old school Magnum fan and this looks good!

The New Magnum has some very big shoes to fill for booth him and his mustache.

See Magnum ... See Magnum suffer from toxic masculinity.

Today's reboots kill everything.

For those who have time to watch TV today. Back in the 80's we didn't have internet.

No porno stache or hawaiian shirt. Strike 1

Higgins is now a hot young woman? Strike 2

Ridiculous "Mission Impossible" style action sequences. Strike 3

Also, why do studios feel the need to put every highlight into the trailer? I feel like I just saw the whole pilot in three minutes.

At least the Ferrari 308 makes an appearance.

Eh, this trailer isn't doing anything for me. I do love hearing that theme song back in action though!

I suppose Higgins and Magnum will at some point become an item...? Utterly ridiculous...

It is now verified and official :
Hollywood is out of ideas.
Magnum P.I. ?
That does it.

Loved Magnum shudder at the thought of a reboot , no Selleck no Magnum.
A female Higgins ? ...

Why attempt to trade off of the name rather than just create a new show ? .... oh yeah , because it's easy.
This is why I don't watch TV anymore.

There's only one Magnum.

The problem is, if you grew up with the original, it´s hard to see anybody else act as the original characters. I bet the series is ok, but couldn´t they have named it different and couldn´t the characters have other names? Then they even could sell it as a complete new series.

I watched Lethal Weapon not long ago, the series. And was surprised how good it is, imo. The only problem is, that aren´t Murtaugh and Riggs but Wayans and Crawford. Instead of Glover and Gibson, which are the real Murtaugh and Riggs. That is the only problem i have when i watch that series. Could be solved if they gave that series and the characters just other names, would have made the series even better!

And then, Higgins now a woman, too much metoo and PC stupidity.
As i say, just other names for series and characters, and everything would be fine.

Remember how they rebooted MacGuyver?

I can honestly say I've never seen any MacGuyver , not sure it was shown much over here although I guess the reboot wasn't a scratch on the original , unless it bucked the trend.

Just checked google , seems it didn't buck the trend.

I wasn't disagreeing with you. Just pointing out that they destroyed MacGuyver in the reboot.

Or, I could point out the ultimate evil in reboot ...

For effs sake.

You can't remake Magnum while Magnum is playing New Yorks top cop in Blue Bloods.

People will get confused.

I was gonna say at least Herc is in it, but then they go and kill him off in the trailer.

You can't have Magnum without the pornstasche. I was remotely interested into I noticed there was nowhere for the birds to nest on his upper lip.

The whole point of Magnum was a testosterone boys club. It was a classic 80's "babe of the week" show. To remake it as something else is just a complete slap in the face to the original.

This new guy totally lacks the masculinity Sellec exudes.

And Higgins as a gal? That changes the whole foil relationship between Magnum and Higgins. It was more like a father/son it's a will they or won't they thing.... No, just no.

And then they go and smash a Ferrari... Just....not fair.

No thanks. I'm out.
