Still watching Magnum PI but mainly just for the Hawaii scenery.

Did not even try watching the new Magnum, or the new Hawaii 5-0 either. They need to just stop remaking classic TV shows and movies, in my opinion. I hate constant remakes.

Didn't watch the new show that was gonna be Roseanne. I didn't like the old show with Roseanne. I heard that it was an attempt to showcase as many diverse kinds of character as possible. I don't want to be politically "guided" or goaded when I watch TV, I want to be entertained.

Why is nothing really, really, funny like Carol Burnett and Harvey Korman or really, really entertaining and fun like Johnny Carson????? I am so tired of poor writers, low budgets and constant commercials.

I do find relief on PBS with some of the Acorn presentations but a few are difficult to understand; either the dialogue is too Aussie or the sound goes down at odd times.

Now I feel better. Got THAT out of my system. Who knew I would get old-er and really relish TV programs.

I am very critical about remakes, but this one is well made and has good plots. So far, I have watched every episode and I think they are excellent.

Watched three episodes. Just could not buy the players trying to emulate the original.

Hawaii 50, however has turned out to be a very good, well written episodes with plots that hold one's attention and the characters acceptable because (to me anyway) they do not spend time trying to be the original.
