Magnum P.I. is back. The pilot/first episode of the reboot hasn’t aired as of this writing, but was directed by Justin Lin, who directed several of the Fast and Furious movies. Looking at the commercials, it seems like he looked at the original show and thought that what it lacked was more high-speed chases, big stunt sequences, and cars blowing up. This isn’t a huge surprise. This is the same guy who directed the only Star Trek movie in which the captain jumps a motorcycle.
Note: I enjoyed Star Trek Beyond, but having the solution to the crew’s predicament be letting Kirk skid around on a dirt bike for twenty minutes did sort of take me out of the story.
