Whoever came up with the crazy idea of trying to make what is basically a conventional cops-and-robbers shoot 'em up blow'em up show special by linking it to one of the classiest shows ever produced should have his membership card in the scriptwriters union revoked. I remember with particular pleasure the the three part series on the Vashon crime family and the attempts of first Harold Gould as the father and then Luther Adler as the grandfather to destroy McGarrett because of the death of the grandson. It's like stumbling out of bed in the morning not exactly sure what you're going to do that day. Guy who's been convicted of taking bribes has a cousin who is now in the police force? Why change the sex of Kono? If the producers want to use the original theme song, then why shorten it? It sucks because you can see the distance between them, when they are at blows with each other. If you're a fan of the original series, your take on this revamping will probably depend on how much a purist you are. The Hawaii locations look great in high-def and it's interesting to see how much Hawaii has grown since the original series went off the air. Wasn't McGarrett suppose to be part Hawaiian? I can't wait for season 7! Watch yourself a reality show like Cops if you're going to harp on it.
The writers and producers have a long way to run with this thing. Lenkov Teleplay by : Eric Guggenheim January 19, 2018 2018-01-19 814 9. It's on location on beautiful Oahu, with little studio time in it. Makes for a fun show which also does not take itself too seriously. Danno is a hothead who is always going over the top.
Watch and see, I won't be watching. Pure entertainment, nothing more, nothing less. Respect has to be earned if it's supposed to mean anything and it allows for more, not less, character development later on. McGarret shows up and the governor just gives him carte blanche to do whatever the hell he wants no matter if it is legal or not? I haven't missed a single episode, and eagerly await it every week! My ten year old daughter could write better stories than this. I had never seen Alex O'Loughlin in anything before this series, and he knocks the ball out of the park with his modern, over the top, somewhat Neanderthal McGarrett, who pushes the law to the limit to win. The pilot begins with an interesting premise that offers thorough background information on the origins of the team.
All in all, I'm very much looking forward to the next episode. His chemistry with Scott Caan makes the series. Grace Park is absolutely gorgeous! Steve and Danno's bantering with each other is hilarious. As of April 26, 2019, 215 episodes of Hawaii Five-0 have aired. I thought it odd that Hawaii 5-0 would open with a scene in South Korea. Archived from on July 11, 2012.
The editing is a shambles, it's so crappy in the action sequences. Archived from on June 20, 2011. How could she pass a background check if her cousin had been kicked off the force for taking bribes? The white actors were all wrong! None of the lead characters share strong chemistry, although with further episodes this might improve. He didn't even lead the team in this show. The idea of making Kono a girl is also a great idea. The dialog and some of the background setup Danno's family situation, for example was a bit too cliché. Eitherway, I find that the relationship between Steve and Danno is quite entertaining and adds much needed comic relief, considering this is a cop show filled with drama.
Something ha ha will be thrown in there when you least expect it. Lenkov Teleplay by: Noah Nelson May 6, 2013 2013-05-06 322 8. Had the producers started fresh with new characters, but kept the spirit of the original formula intact, there would be less tendency to compare the two series; each would stand on its own merits.

Yep, it's called story-arc remember the key he found in the tool box? Click does not host any videos or uploads any media files which is found here. When recreating characters from an original series, it's inevitable that there will be viewers who object to the substitutes. I also like the more combative Danny in this version as I always thought the old Danny was more of a doormat. The camaraderie reminds me a little of: some Starsky and Hutch, a dash of 21 Jump Street, and yes the feel of the original Hawaii Five-O is there. Storyline: Definitely an action show, and it's done adequately. Face it folks, action, quick cuts and tight editing are here to stay.
Outdoors: That's just how they roll on that island. The original Hawaii Five-0 was unique. Their acting ability and range would allow for big screen versions of the show. Lenkov Teleplay by : Shane Salerno April 18, 2011 2011-04-18 121 11. Now for the pilot episode.
There were great guest stars too, including Hal Holbrook, Ed Asner, Hume Cronyn, and even Helen Hayes. Hawaii 5-0 2010 is no crime drama, and it's not meant to be. I like that they're in their 30's and not all 90210 on viewers. The H5-0 theme is the best thing about the show but to be honest they could have called the show anything as it bares no other similarity to the original. It seems unbelievable that her character would land a job like this, fresh out of police academy and with no real police experience. I bet money that one of the story lines down the road is where Danno's ex-wife's husband turns out to be some kind of crime figure and Danno busts him and get's his wife back. Overall verdict: no better than the other crime dramas currently on the air but certainly promises room for improvement.
