I think Sellick's response was a lot more dignified than RDA's to be honest.

Perhaps or news in Hollywood travels fast. "What? Lenkov doing another reboot? Oh no, there goes the originality train again! Best stay clear Tom. Rick sure did."

Top notch response.

Kinda ballsy of that guy to say they can do a better job than the original show, something I seriously doubt. I would like to see them to beat episodes like: Did You The Sunrise? Home by the Sea, Echoes of the Mind, Little Girl Who? Death and Taxes, Solo Flight, Laura and Limbo. Episodes that were quite dark and showed more guts then anything else on TV at the time. Magnum PI dared to go where MacGyver stays clear from most of the time. Maybe Magnum was at least in his second half of the run aiming at an older audience. Of course we have our episodes like Kill Zone and Lesson In Evil. Then again, two different shows but they're so good because they're so opposites. MacGyver is neat, decent and is the guy you go to when you have problems. Magnum is sloppy, unorganized and needs favors from his friends, instead of the other way around.

I don't know about Lenkov yet. I still need to catch up on the show. I just wonder how they really feel about it. They probably know they can't do anything about it. But there's no one ever saying: "hands off." Don't you think producers and actors should have a say in this to protect their product? If a show had his run, it has had his run. MacGyver had 7 great seasons, Magnum had 8 great seasons. When it's done, it's done.

On the other side, I think it's interesting to see how shows from back in those days would work now. Though they can never beat the original.

I think the poison that was used was applied to this knife, passed to the mutton when it was cut and then activated by the wine. - MacGyver.
Sometimes you just have to die a little inside to be reborn and rise again as a stronger and wiser version of you.
It's better to be a little sad than to be fake content.

Its about maintaining their rights and trying to sell the product again. Had this reboot been called Hawaii PI no one would watch it, but slap on the Magnum PI label and you have everyone's attention.

And since MacGyver 2016 is so foreign to the original nowadays, they don't really care since they already have their audience.

No this is all Lenkovs doing.

He went to CBS with the idea. It's been his dream project since he stared in TV.

And after reading the pilot script... I think he's nailed it.

When I read the script I was picturing all the original characters in the scenes and hearing Sellecks voice as I read the voice-overs.

It felt like the original... the way the dogs hate him and chase him all the time... the way Higgins treats him... the way Rick and RC interact with him....

Of course there will be changes. it's modern TV. The show has to meet today's audience's expectations that doesn't mean it cant' still be enjoyable.

Like the reboot people become so obsessed with hating something just because it's not the original and doesn't have the original actors in it they can't (or wont) see it in the context of today's television style.

Remember Lenkov is a huge Magnum fan and unlike the MacGyver reboot, he has been in full control of this right from the first script.


(Lenkov was brought into to fix the shambles CBS had made of the MacGyver reboot. He had to work with what they already had in a very tight time frame. I believe if he had been given a blank sheet and told to "make us a MacGyver reboot" we would have had much better reboot.)

I don't entirely believe that. Despite whatever he had to work with at the time of MacGyver, he still had more than ample time to conform the show to its original form yet it just became further from the original. This tells me that no amount of control would have brought the show back to its roots.

You may be assuming he had more creative control of the reboot than he really had. wink.gif

Don't have the facts but i think he did. With a resume of Hawaii 5 0 on his hands i think they might have let him free roam a little. At the end of the day, we will only really know the truth when Magnum P.I. is released and see ho that eventually turns out. If you start to see covert warfare in season 2 then you know i was right. laugh.gif

Honestly, I have no interest in watching the reboot, especially since I had no interest in the original either. But I am curious to see what people will think of this one.

I'll stand by with popcorn. wink.gif

Wonder if Magnum will still be using his trademark M1911A1? This being 2018 it may well be something more modern.

An hommage? An imitation? Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, said by yours truly.

Plenty of episodes in which Magnum was in a chase and firing a gun. I think in At Face Value, when he accidently hurts an innocent woman.

I think the poison that was used was applied to this knife, passed to the mutton when it was cut and then activated by the wine. - MacGyver.

New 30-second-trailer. Looks pretty generic to me... Think it's a downgrade from the first material I've seen... hmm.bmp

Lynette Rice@Lynetterice

Araceli@tia323araceli
@PLenkov original plan was to bring #MagnumPI on as a friend of McGarrett years ago, but couldn’t because the characters were under different company licenses #SDCC18

Araceli@tia323araceli
Sorry Magnum superfans, but the old model Ferrari does not drive well, so @jay_hernandez will be driving a newer model #MagnumPI #SDCC18

Reel News Hawaii@reelnewshawaii
It’s official!! Magnum & Hawaii 5-0 will coexist in the same world!!! There will be crossover episodes between them. #MagnumPI #h50 #Hawaii50

I don't like the idea of having H50 characters turn up in episode 2 already. WTH?

The show needs time on it's own to develop and let us get to know the characters etc.

This really feels like they don't have any faith in the shows ability to carry itself.

Having 2 Shows filming in Hawaii, I can't really fault them for doing that. Also, it's not a real cross over, probably just the Magnum Team eating at Kamekona's Food truck or something. And now that I recall, I think I've read on SpoilerTV a while ago (or after the Upfronts) that Dr. Noelani (played by Kimee Balmilero) will be in Pilot Episode. I haven't kept up with the new Season, but as far as I know she's a minor lab character (similarly to Jill in the MacGyver Reboot).

I think it's more to get H50 fans on board as early as possible. If the show was on after H50 on Fridays, that would be easy to achieve, but now they have to get H50 fans to tune in on Mondays too; especially with the competition on other channels on Monday.

Ratings for H50 are still good, but who knows? H50 might be done in a few years (if the main actors decide to quit), but the fans could stay for Magnum instead of flocking to other Shows first. So they have to get them to check out the Show now.
