Magnum, P. I. (Reboot)
The original Magnum, P. I. starring Tom Selleck as Thomas Magnum, ran from 1980-88 on CBS. Loved the show & man candy. It was rebooted in 2018 on CBS. I just found it a couple of weeks ago. We have Jay Hernandez as Thomas Magnum. In both shows, Thomas is a well-trained ex-military man, now working as a private eye taking care of & living at Robin’s Nest. The estate is owned by a multi-millionaire, Robin Masters, an author. We never see Robin. There are 2 Doberman dogs, Zeus & Apollo, who seem to relish going after Magnum. The estate is run by Higgins, a British military person - in the first series, it was a man, in this series, she’s a, wait for it, beautiful woman (& she can kick butt like nobody’s business). Most of the previous show’s characters are present in a new life. Most of them are ex-military. The Ferrari in the first show was updated to a current model. The shows are/were shot in Hawaii. I’ve seen just one episode of the reboot, & I’m trying to get the first season (for cheap or free).

Almost Always True, Elvis Presley, from Blue Hawaii, 1961

I was always, baby, I was always
Well almost always true to you
Met a pretty mademoiselle
Her papa owned a small hotel
Oh, I was almost always true to you

(Both wearing Detroit Tigers caps)

I resisted tho' my arm was twisted
I was almost always true to you
Stayed away from drinkin' wine
Thought about you all the time
Oh, I was almost always true to you

(Original) (Reboot)

Kept refusin' don't jump to conclusions
I was almost always true to you
I would never grab like this
I would never steal a kiss
Oh, I was almost always true to you
