I've recently discovered Peter Gunn on Me-TV. It's only on once a week (Sunday in the middle of the night), but what a cool show! I went looking for it online and someone has posted the first 2 seasons on youtube. Here's a link if any Magnum maniacs are interested :

I assume Bellasario was a fan of the show and was referencing it when he named his character Magnum. I wonder if Selleck was a fan of it, too? Some of Craig Stevens' mannerisms remind me of Magnum's. Also, I've watched about 10 episodes and Gunn seems to screw up, get beat up, and just get lucky as much as TM.

You really liked Peter Gunn? I thought I was the only one crazy about this show. Can you tell me your experience about the show. I am really exited to hear it.

I always preferred Johnny Staccato, which boasted some amazing B&W photography, NYC location shooting, and stellar Elmer Bernstein theme and underscore. In a way it is the antithesis of Peter Gunn in that Staccato's star, John Cassavetes, played things "hot" compared to Craig Stevens' cooler-than-anything approach. Different characters, different shows. I like all those "Swingin' Detectives" of the late 1950s and Peter Gunn is no exception! It's a sub genre of its own, IMO.

This show is surprisingly violent. Shootings, electrocutions, arsonists - all sorts of fun stuff.
