JUST RERUN THE ORIGINAL:

It was acceptable in the 80s: why Magnum PI should be spared reboot hell (Stuart Heritage, 25 October 2017, The Guardian)

Magnum PI, for crying out loud. Is nothing sacred? Sure, on the surface, the original Magnum PI was just one of a glut of post-Vietnam shows about vigilante justice with a charismatic male lead and storylines that wrapped up neatly at the top of the hour. But it was special. Everyone knows it was special. By some absurd alchemy Magnum PI ended up perfectly written, perfectly cast and perfectly soundtracked, managing to be both of its time and utterly timeless. You don't mess with Magnum PI.

It's not like you can top : "Did you see the sunrise, Ivan?"
