Check it, Peons: Your CNN Humiliation Compartmentalized

Thursday, January 29, 2009


Today is Tom Selleck's birthday! All the best to you Tom, thanks for making this world a better, more mustachioied place. It's also a perfect day to celebrate one of the greatest shows of all time, Magnum P.I. Those of you who know me know that Magnum P.I. is on constant rotation at my place. But I'm not going to focus on the important elements of the show (such as the legendary mustache.) No, I'd like to point out the little details that make this show a classic:

1. The rubber chicken

2. TC's rainbow suspenders, occasionally worn without a shirt

3. Rick's contrast collared shirts, occasionally unbuttoned to display gold chains

4. The brown and orange Island Hoppers color scheme

5. Magnum's big brass bed

6. Magnum's crazy tight OP shorts, which never cease to catch me off guard when I look up from ironing or writing or brushing my teeth.

7. The fact that they reused the estate location (and countless actors) from Hawaii Five-0

8. The blue eyeshadow, feathered hair and nude pantyhose sported by the sexy ladies--even on Waikiki Beach

9. Higgins' comb over

10. Agatha's huge glasses, behind which she gave Higgins' comb over many lustful glances
