My second husband was a commercial fisherman/shrimper. I used to watch this show. Never missed it. But I found it too stressful. Evertime they would show a man overboard or in the water, I would get that same sick feeling in my stomach that I got the night my husband went into the Atlantic. He came home wrapped in a CG blanket and his underwear. Too many bad memories of friends lost at sea.

I had a hard time figuring out which episode was the actual season opener.

few vintage shows work for me, but i tuned in to see one of my 'babies of the eighties', tom selleck, for an episode of magnum, p.i. today, and found it to be thoroughly enjoyable. same adorable hunky hottie in shorts, driving a candy red ferrari 'borrowed' from his rich absentee boss, mr. masters, and matching wits with higgins, the eccentric manager of the hawaiian estate where they both reside. he's a laid back, but effective private investigator with laughing blue eyes and a sexy, easy-going charm that just won't quit...
magnum, pi is every bit as good as i remembered it, yumm.:)

And good, ol' Tom is still just as "yumm" in "Blue Bloods" as he was back then. I try to catch the "Jesse Stone" TV movies when those show up too. They have all of them at our library system...hmm, maybe a little something to keep warn with this coming winter.

sorry, but i don't care for tom's blue bloods show. actually, it would be more accurate to say that i can't abide blue bloods. i think it is the writing that puts me off. i haven't been able to sit through an entire episode, despite several attempts to do so, for tom, for old time's sake....:(

I think he is a better actor now than he was when he was younger.

I always hoped they would make a TV series or a few movies based on Lilian Jackson Braun's Cat Who mystery books. I think Tom Selleck would be great playing James Mackintosh Qwilleran.

Sort of a male Jessica Fletcher!

Great show! I couldn't do what they do.

I once worked on a tuna boat and had a serious issue with sea sickness.

We were out for a week off the US NW Pacific coast.

If that was a pacific sea I would hate to see the North Atlantic!

Hats off to those gents.

My weeknight bedtime routine is to get into bed and watch The Twilight Zone then Perry Mason back to back.

That session ends at 11:30 which is my bedtime.

As it's 11:27 now I bid you all a good night. Have a great day tomorrow.
