I had a wonderful holiday season, but I am also incredibly happy that some new television is starting again tonight! What is even more exciting about tonight is that we are finally getting the Hawaii Five-0 and Magnum P.I. crossover I have been wanting since the beginning. It has always bothered me that they haven’t had the teams meet before, seeing as we have supporting characters such as Noelani and Duke who have appeared on both shows. Hopefully after this crossover, it will be more like the #OneChicago series of shows, where the different departments cross paths during each other’s shows. That would make this girl ecstatic.

On tonight’s Hawaii Five-0, “Ihea ‘oe i ka wa a ka ua e loku ana? (Where Were You When the Rain was Pouring?),” when a list of undercover CIA agents is stolen, Steve and Five-0 enlist the help of Magnum, Higgins, Rick, and TC to get it back and protect national security. Also, Higgins gives Tani some personal advice.

Then on Magnum P.I., “Desperate Measures,” Junior is kidnapped as leverage to retrieve the stolen list of undercover CIA agents, and most of Five-0 is rounded up by the CIA to prevent them from interfering. Tani and Quinn ask Magnum and Higgins for their help.

Can my two favorite island crime fighting teams secure the list of CIA agents and save Junior before it’s too late? Find out for sure tonight on CBS starting at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching Blue Bloods.

Today, Netflix releases the first half of the fifth and final season of Fuller House. As the fourth season came to a close, the She Wolf Pack went to a performance of Hamilton, but Kimmy’s water broke just as the show was about to start. So DJ and Stephanie rushed her off to the hospital. Meanwhile, Jimmy was having doubts about becoming a father (little did he know it was about to be a little too late for that), but Fernando and Max calmed his fears. As Kimmy gave birth to a baby girl, Jimmy proposed to Stephanie, who, of course, accepted—”Stephanie Tanner, you are now officially going to be a Gibbler!” Also in the waiting room were Jackson and Rocki, who had reconciled – Jackson had made fun of her at prom, but she forgave him, and during the car ride to the hospital, the two seem to have realized they still had feelings for one another.

I’ve really enjoyed this revival series, and it’s sad to think there are just 18 episodes left. What crazy situations await the Tanners and Gibblers? We know there’s at least one more wedding in the works. Will the Olsen twins actually make an appearance before it’s all over? (Seems doubtful.) How will they explain the disappearance of Aunt Becky – is it too soon to joke about her legal situation? What will Stephanie and Jimmy name their daughter? This is one of the few Netflix shows I’ve managed to keep up with, and I look forward to checking out the new episodes tonight.

I’ll also be watching/recording The Blacklist, Van Helsing, Encore!, High School Musical: The Musical: The Series, Servant, The Graham Norton Show, The Mandalorian, The World According to Jeff Goldblum, and Top Elf.

Magnum P.I. returned last week, and there are still loose ends to tie up – Higgins still hasn’t given Magnum an answer about becoming a partner. Higgins did leave to go to England to see her old boss from MI6, so I’m hoping she’s just taking care of old business, because she and Magnum make a perfect team. In fact, they make a little bit too good of a team for the liking of the woman Magnum is seeing… She was not pleased with the moment that Magnum and Higgins shared before she left. I’m okay with that because I would love it if Higgins and Magnum got together as a couple. They are perfect for each other.

On tonight’s episode, “Honor Among Thieves,” an incorrigible pickpocket, Jin, asks Magnum for help when a cell phone he recently lifted receives a very suspicious text message. Also, Magnum is frustrated when Higgins still won’t give him an answer to whether or not she will become his partner, and when Rick decides to make a bold career move, T.C. comes to the rescue.

Find out if Higgins finally gives an answer tonight on CBS at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching Hawaii Five-0 and Blue Bloods.

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?.
