    I expect a Hawaii Five-0 crossover with in the first few episode as it will turn out Magnum and McGarrett were Navy SEALs together or something like that.

    I think Jay Hernandez looks too young

    Never knew this was being remade.  How long before they remake the A-Team for TV?!  I know they tried and failed with Knightrider a few years back, wonder how this will go.

    Was this not gonna be with Magnum's daughter or something? Yer man in the OP's pic isn't suited anyway!

    CBS, do they have any good shows?

    Was gonna say not even Herc could get me to watch this, but the trailer kind of ruined that. In fact it kinda ruins the whole season.

    I like the music...

    Trailer gives away FAR too much. Has it's moments, but overall I'm not sure!

    LOL! Looks to be the same formula as H50 and MacGyver. Take an original show, throw out its setup, make it a team with a techie, a shïtkicker, a resourceful one and let’s make the boss female. Hilarity ensues. Ok H50hasnt a female boss but I’d bet if it was launched today it’d be Cmdr Stephanie McGarrett. Do they ever get tired of cut and paste show development? Let’s hope it’s better than McGyver. That show is awful poor.


  • Registered Users Posts: 55,454 ✭✭✭✭ Agent Coulson


    Started last night going to stick it on in a bit and give it a try at least.


  • Registered Users Posts: 55,454 ✭✭✭✭ Agent Coulson


    Zeus & Apollo were the best thing.

    The cast lack the presence and charisma however it fits well into the bland/slick/multicultural/non discrimination casting PC rebooting/reimagining CBS universe of Hawaii Five O and MacGyver.


  • Registered Users Posts: 26,227 ✭✭✭✭ CastorTroy


    Have it ready to watch this evening. I'll be honest and say I remember little about the original apart from Selleck, tache, shirt and car. And the theme song.

    So will watch it and Manifest later


  • Registered Users Posts: 26,227 ✭✭✭✭ CastorTroy


    Well they're definitely not hiding the fact they're in the same world as Hawaii Five-0. But if the first time we see them meet is the first time they actually meet, I would be surprised. Steve would have to know him at least. Ex marine. PI. run-ins with cops. Being reminded it's 5-0's jurisdiction. Of course he would have to be introduced on that show and they would have to be introduced on tis one.
    Knew that guy was either going to die or be the bad guy, since he wasn't in the opening credits. If it was the pilot that was killed, I would have suspected Kamekona.
    And he deserved to lose the first Ferrari, blocking a drive that had an ambulance in it.

    Think 5-0 is enough CBS procedural for me, so will pass on this show. Easy watch but don't need to watch.

    Same guy behind the new Hawaii Five-0 is thought they'd knock it out of the park (as the Yanks say) with the first episode, but wasn't a patch on Five-0.

    It wasn't great, but wasn't bad either - just a bit ho-hum. Cast is decent (including the hounds) and I like they made it action show. The flashback to the Afghanistan prison makes no sense -
    where did Nuzo stash the bullet and firefighter?:rolleyes:
    .

    The producers confirmed ages ago it was a part of the Hawaii Five-0 world but said a crossover was a long way off, but they mentioned Five-0 in the pilot and Cunhu appeared, Kamekona is in the next episode and McGarret is already set to appear late in the season.

    I'll watch it if it shows up on Netflix or something but I'm a couple of seasons behind on Five-0 so I'm in no hurry to watch Magnum in case of spoilers in any crossovers.

    I dont hate it.

    But it just needs Tom Selleck to appear in at least 1 episode as Robin Masters


  • Registered Users Posts: 74,965 ✭✭✭✭ JP Liz V1


    It starts on Sky1 on Wednesday January 16th at 9pm

    So how long before her and Magnum are getting jiggy on the beach :P

    I like Zachary Knighton as Rick, could be as I am a Happy Endings fan


  • Registered Users Posts: 154 ✭✭ aine1980


    I thought this would be an easy breezy show to enjoy, but it's taking so much effort to watch lately.. just checked and there are only a few more ep's left of the season, might as well finish it out but definitely won't be sticking with this one.


  • Registered Users Posts: 12,895 ✭✭✭✭ Joe_ Public


    This is quite possibly the worst thing that’s ever appeared on a tv screen and before you ask, no I haven’t seen a single second of it.

    I can forgive Higgins being a lady, and I can forgive a lack of Tom Sellek given his age.


    However, I can NOT get past the lead actor not having a Tash

    I’m sure he’ll sort it once he gets past puberty.

    It's a real no brainer of a show, I guess the Hawaii Tourism Board has a massive budget to keep this and Hawaii-50 on the air. Saying that, I like watching those shows as it reminds me of my honeymoon.


  • Registered Users Posts: 74,965 ✭✭✭✭ JP Liz V1


    Jordana Brewster to play Magnum's ex


  • Registered Users Posts: 3,164 ✭✭✭ pah


    I like 5-0 for the most part. Easy to watch with great chemistry on the team. Only ever saw snippets of MacGyver I'm afraid to ruin my childhood as that along with the ATEAM was the gold standard for me. I watched Magnum a bit as a kid but not as much as the other 2.

    If I start watching something and get past 3 eposodes I usually commit unless it's absolutely godawful. Last thing I abandoned was Taken, the series after 5or6 episodes.

    I suppose I'll give it a whirl.

    MacGyver isn't too bad because it's not a reboot more the next generation.
