I'm not really interested but will prob check out the first episode when it airs.

I remember I had this 45 when i was a kid. I like the theme and wonder if they will do something similiar.

I don't know about the new Magnum... but the MacGyver reboot sucks!

Trailer drops. A return of the Detroit Tigers cap, Zues and Appolo, TC's helicopter and the theme:

I'm familiar with a couple of the actors, but that last scene with the copter was so over the top that I probably would have little interest in the show. I'm too grounded in the original and how the characters should act and function and it doesn't include a hokey scene that one would see in Mission Impossible.

Agreed, that was unrealistic.

Razz

You guys are right. That ending is so over the top. Looks like something from a Arnold or Stallone flick from the 80s.

I appreciate the simplicity of characters, the ones you can relate to, the blue collar guy. There's this over indulgence regarding the spectacular and how it quickly escalates from the sublime to the ridiculous. I love Marvel and superheroes, but I want there to be a clear distinction between human beings and superheroes. Regarding a female playing Higgins, it doesn't bother me, as I think it would be impossible to replicate what John Hillerman created. I can still hear and see the "Oh My God", which would be stated every so often, when it came down to something Higgins was irritated by when it came to Magnum. Regarding the Ferrari, we seriously saw it already destroyed twice??? This looks like it's clearly aimed at the Fast & the Furious culture, so the demo over 30 something will probably give it a chance, but I'm guessing will eventually abandon it.
