If We Controlled Your Remote… 9/24/18

Have you ever been at a loss as to what to watch? Too many shows to pick from? We’re here to give you our opinions on what we feel is worth watching. Check it out and then let us know in the comments below what you’re choosing for tonight!

Jenny’s Choice

I loved whenever I got to see reruns of Magnum P.I. – Tom Selleck was such a hottie! (Still is, frankly! The man’s aged well.) So when I heard they were making a reboot of the series, I was so excited. In case you don’t know anything about the show, here’s the short of it: Thomas Magnum (Jay Hernandez, The Expanse, Six Degrees) is a private investigator in Oahu, Hawaii. Okay, here’s the longer version: Magnum lives in a guest cottage on Robin’s Nest, the luxurious estate where he works as a security consultant to supplement his P.I. business. Juliet Higgins (who was male in the original series) is a beautiful, strong disavowed MI:6 agent who is the “majordomo” of the property and whose second job is to keep Magnum in line. Magnum’s friends and fellow POW survivors are Theodore “TC” Calvin, who runs a helicopter tour business, and Orville “Rick” Wright (Zachary Knighton, Happy Endings, Flash Forward), the most connected man on the island.

I’ve seen tonight pilot, and it’s a lot of fun. It’s got a very similar vibe to Hawaii Five-0, especially given the setting – and they ARE in the same “universe,” so we’ll get several crossovers, beginning with tonight’s premiere. It’s just a small one, but it’s there. If you’re a fan of Hawaii Five-0, you’ll know it when you see it! If you liked Scorpion and some of the crazy rescues they had to do, you’ll enjoy this show, so give it a chance!

On tonight’s episode, “I Saw the Sun Rise,” Jay Hernandez stars as Thomas Magnum in a modern take on the classic series about a decorated former Navy SEAL who, upon returning home from Afghanistan, repurposes his military skills to become a private investigator in Hawaii.

Meet the 2018 version of Thomas Magnum tonight on CBS at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing The Big Bang Theory, 9-1-1, Halloween Baking Championship, & Whose Line Is It Anyway?.
