Magnum PI

Still holds up after all these years.

Only downside is having to watch commercials for Hallmark movies.


I hear the new one is good too.

But I just can't get past the new dude looking way too small to be a Tom Selleck replacement. That and I don't do much live tv network shows.

Loved the storylines that continued throughout its eight year run. Wish they had made a movie of it when Selleck was younger. TV (special effects, cameras, etc..) have come a long way since then but many episodes would really get you thinking. Hard not to form bonds with many of those characters...

They had plans for the movie....but it never materialized

Remember the episode when he shot Ivan?
"IVAN!! Did you see the sun rise this morning?" BOOM!! Fade to black...

Great show.

Still see the old school Ferrari’s and helicopters flying around Oahu...well...did...before COVID 19. Often pass Carl Weathers (Apollo Creed, former heavyweight champion of the world until Rocky beat him) on the way to walking my kid to a school near Lanikai Beach...also until COVID 19. He directs a lot of the new Hawaii 5-0 episodes.

I met Tom Selleck in 1986, when Magnum P.I. was the bomb.

I was in LA doing training classes for a software company and was using a room in the Spicer & Oppenheim building on Santa Monica Blvd. There were several levels of parking underneath the building, and it was all valet parking. I'm standing in line waiting to get my car and paying no attention to the tall guy in front of me. Until I heard his voice. I say - hey, you're Tom Selleck. He turns around and gives me that goofy grin and just says "yep". LOL

We chatted for a few mins in line until they brought his car around. And yes, it was some kind of low slung sports car that he had to fold up to get into, I think it was a Lotus. That dude is tall, I'm 5-9 and he towered over me. Gotta be 6-4, 6-5.

I asked the next day, why was Tom Selleck here? They explained that one of the services they provide was "taking care of people's business while they're away". I'd never thought about it before, but if an actor or whatever is out of town for several months, somebody makes sure all their bills are paid, the house is kept clean, the yard is maintained, etc.
