Morning Amusement

Courtesy of the ever-awesome Space: 1970 blog, I bring you Star Wars Hawaii 5-0 style:

  1. There is a similar, and similarly entertaining, one mixing up Magnum, pi and Han Solo.

  2. The side-by-side comparison is pretty good too.

    Connections abound. Magnum was originally intended as a follow-up to 5-0, and ended up using many of the same sets, and Tom Selleck was of course the original Indiana Jones, before being replaced by Ford due to his commitments to Magnum, pi.

  3. As I recall, there are even references in Magnum P.I. to the 5-0 unit, making the connection between the two series quite explicit.

  4. Interesting people are thinking of 5-0, probably because of the reboot.

    If you're looking for humor, one of the best things I read about Hawaii Five-0 was Mark Evanier's critique of the top 12 things that they kept overdoing on the original show. Since because of the remake you're seeing the originals now on Spike and other places, this seems an appropriate list to go over. (Also of note is the link on that page to a real harsh critique of Jack Lord from an early TV Guide).

    I didn't even know there was a reboot until this morning. How I wish I could time travel back to that time.

  6. I notice that it both only contained material from episodes 4 through 6. Thankfully.

  7. I still feel like the A-Team / Star Wars mashup is the most well done of them all.
