What’s The Opposite Of A Woodpecker?

Time for another episode of setisoppO, the podcast where we work out the opposite of things that don’t have a natural opposite. This week, we discuss the topics of woodpeckers, dominoes, and trunks.

No one really knows why one of them is dressed as Indiana Jones, and one of them is dressed as Magnum PI.

Apparently, there are two Magnum reboots in the works at the moment. The first is with ABC, and focuses on his daughter, while the second, at CBS, is a remake from the people remaking Hawaii Five-O. Which is actually weirdly synergistic, because the original (and best) Magnum was created to make use of the Hawaiian production facilities left behind after the original Hawaii Five-0 finished. There are even some vague crossovers as I recall.
