magnum looks like it will be fun, not sure if it will be good,, Hawaii 5-o has been solid though as has Macgyver.

funny how they cancelled so many shows that only people 50+ were watching and they suddenly those are the shows they are bring back..

Frasier/sienfeld./Cheers to follow would be fun.

the magnum PI reboot has higgins perilously holed up in the the compound due to kilaulua fissure eruptions . meanwhile magnum accidentally
shoots an unarmed TC cuz he thinks he's stealing a helicopter. and rick inadvertently dials in a phony nuclear threat when he hits the wrong button calling in a sports bet. and yes magnum is getting sued. for serial misogyny and murder.

Call me crazy, but I think Tony Shalhoub could do a serviceable job.
Shalhoub would be a solid choice. They would need good writers also. Not easy to write a murder mystery when the killer is known from the very beginning. That's another thing that makes Columbo so good. Steven Bochco and Steven Spielberg both got their starts on Columbo.

Fun fact I just read - Bing Crosby was first offered the role of Columbo but was retired and didn't need the money.

Bumping an old thread. I've been watching some of the old Columbos again on the weekend now that football is over. I'm more open to resurrecting it than I was originally. I can't imagine it's easy to make a murder mystery entertaining when you know who did it the whole time, but they manage to. Might be kind of neat to see what they could come up with for storylines with the modern technology that is out there.
