Magnum PI and Cagney and Lacy might come back?

Ehh....


I like Magnum PI more so than the other Hawaiian police drama Hawaii Five-0 (original). I just enjoyed it more and yes, that Ferrari helped a lot LOL. I hope it can keep the spirit of the original because I thought the original cast's ties to Vietnam and then also being in Hawaii with the American, Asian, and Hawaiian mix of people also made it work against that Pearl Harbor and Vietnam war backdrop to most of the character's stories.

I know I watched some episodes of Gagney and Lacy but I don't have any distinct memories of the show other that Tyne Daily was the stand out character.

Some of these remakes just don't cut it like the originals. The new McGuyver isn't the same as the old one with Richard Dean Anderson. Some of these shows can't really be the same with another actor. Magnum P.I. was all Tom Selleck and John Hillerman there isn't anybody that I can think of that can play the same or better character as they did.
The one show that I'd like to see remade is Buck Rogers. Gil Gerard didn't really make the show for me and I think it could have great success like new Battlestar Galactica had.

I tried to go back and watch the old Macguyver and it's REALLY cheesy. The new one isn't bad. His security sidekick and tech person really round out the show. Before it was kind of a one man show.

In fairness, I haven't seen any of the episode of Macguyver from this season.


I completely agree about Magnum PI. Leave that one alone.
