Magnum PI, arguably the centerpiece of CBS’ reboot-heavy upcoming season, has numerous query marks, not the least of which is how Jay Hernandez will fill the moustache of Tom Selleck as Thomas Magnum. However our first look signifies he’s as much as the job, even because the present opts for barely goofier motion theatrics than the unique.
The fundamental items are nonetheless in place: Magnum is a army veteran, this time of Afghanistan, crashing within the visitor home of a mysterious, absurdly wealthy writer. Along with his chopper pilot buddy TC (Stephen Hill) and mildly sketchy buddy Rick (Zachary Knighton of Blissful Endings fame), he hangs out, drinks beer along with his buddies, and solves the occasional case, regardless of the contempt of 1 Juliet Higgins (Perdita Weeks), getting an improve from the stuffy butler of the unique. However, after all, there may be hassle in paradise, with the brutal homicide of a Ferrari, oh, and in addition, one among Magnum’s struggle buddies additionally will get killed by mysterious goons. Magnum takes the case and each property injury and unlikely motion heroics ensue.
It seems fairly diverting, though we doubt the precise present may have fairly so many costly exploding vans and Hernandez leaps. There’s additionally a touch or two that Magnum will fall afoul of the staff over at Hawaii 5-Zero, which looks as if pure synergy. Why not cross over with NCIS: LA and MacGyver whereas we’re at it? Severely, watching MacGyver and Magnum buddy-cop it throughout Hawaii would most likely fill each ’80s child with pleasure, particularly if we throw The A-Crew in there by some means.
