    Just finished the series, and I really, really enjoyed it. Krasinski knocked it out of the park.

    Highly recommend it.

    Cool I’ll check it out. On a similar note, Michael B Jordan is going to play John Clark in a movie or two. Should be cool, although he seems a bit young to play that character. Liev Schrieber was too.

    Anyone watch the new Magnum remake?

    I mean, I'm skeptical as FUCK... I grew up with Magnum and Simon and Simon as the mainstays of my entertainment... so a remake of Magnum immediately gets my hackles up.

    Doesn’t blow my skirt up. You can’t remake this:

    I saw the first episode of Magnum as it was first broadcast and did not bother to watch the second.

    Yeah... "Oh, let's make Higgins a woman...", and destroy 2 Ferraris like this is a modern day Dukes of Hazzard... and shitty CGI...

    I was willing to give it a try, but am pretty well one-and-done.

    The original Magnum was done at the right time and the right way, and it was tailor-made for a guy like Selleck.

    This will probably go the way of most other 80’s show remakes.

    If it wasn’t for Magnum PI, Selleck would have been Indiana Jones.

    That is true. And Nick Nolte was almost Han Solo. Luckily that set carpenter who hated using stuntmen was available for the role instead.

    This looks really good, and REALLY harrowing.

    Noho Hank is one of the best new characters in TV. Bill Hader is brilliantly miscast, he plays a contract killer quite well.

    Yeah, the wife and I binge watched season 1 and now caught up on season 2. Great show but surprised how few people I know are watching it.
    Taylor's "Leroy Jenkinssssss" about had me falling out of my chair.
