Cozi gems

Cozi, a channel Comcast keeps at 286, holds some gems from the past. Tonight, it's "Magnum PI," four hours of the 1980s Hawaii-based comedy-drama. It's a nice glimpse back into how TV, popular and then-quality television.

Most interesting to me, not the shorts, but the use of songs not by original artists but covers.

I'm sure someone else started using better songs, but "The Sopranos" perfected it. It's part of the cost of quality, though.
