If you're a fan of the original series, your take on this revamping will probably depend on how much a purist you are. Something ha ha will be thrown in there when you least expect it. Did they think the nostalgia factor would attract new viewers? All he did was stand back and watch as Danno had tantrums. It's also not its father, and anyone looking for a straight remake of the original classic is setting themselves up for disappointment. Meanwhile, Chin puts his career on the line to help Danny get the money he needs to save his bother's life. Hawaii is an exotic backdrop for any show but the original Hawaii Five-0 introduced it naturally as the action took us from the mansions of Kahala to the slums of King Street and to such places as the campus of the university, Kapiolani Park, the Iolani Palace, the Punchbowl Cemetery, and the hotels of Waikiki. And just for the record i am no die hard fan of the original by any means but from what i have seen of the new version this show could easily have been so much better.
It seems unbelievable that her character would land a job like this, fresh out of police academy and with no real police experience. It would be interesting to see Jean Smart, the governor, a bit more, but that might politicize the cases a little too much. 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. Watch and see, I won't be watching. The idea of making Kono a girl is also a great idea. Sometimes things just go boom. Even though some of the episodes border on unrealistic for Hawaii today, the scenery and usage of typical local dialect are always quite classic and surprising in every episode.
Like a lot of people we were looking forward to the new series of Hawaii 5-0 but i have to say that after 2 episodes i am not sure i can watch it again. This show keeps getting better and better every season. 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. McGarrett learns she is a courier for a drug ring operating out of Singapore. Viewers will likely enjoy this show due to its drama, action and overall intrigue. He hasn't the same charisma.
He also acts typical-Italian with the hand gestures. If the producers want to use the original theme song, then why shorten it? Some of the dialog resulted in an approving chuckle from me. While the pilot and first few episodes didn't take advantage of the beautiful backdrop of Hawaii quite enough, they sure have made up for that over the season. It's not the same without them but as long as there's Steve and Danny I'll watch. This show feels like the antidote to all those forensic, gritty, supposedly realistic crime dramas out there today. Some cheesy stuff, some wow stuff, some well acted scenes. It's a slick looking production, in that it takes advantage of the locale and the attractive leads.
The rare medal, he is convinced, some-how holds the solution to this case, which is laden with international intrigue. In one episode, we learn more about where all four of them than we did in the original series from 1968-80. There are some differences regarding the character's lives, but that's fine, as long as every episode has the spirit that it's had so far. If you never watched the original series, give this one a chance. It sucks because you can see the distance between them, when they are at blows with each other. Pure entertainment, nothing more, nothing less. Crafty Stringer, in using the photo in an extortion attempt on Kramer, is courting his own death at the hands of the dangerous Alika.
Their acting ability and range would allow for big screen versions of the show. Unfortunately for the thief, Mic Chandler, McGarrett apprehends him. Having been there twice myself, I believe that every American should see this true paradise. Frankly, I don't know what reviewers here are complaining about since we're actually getting a detailed origins story up front, which the writers didn't even bother with the 1968 original. Russ Hendrix, now a private detective, is the nervy killer, and Hendrix knows McGarrett is wise to him.
This enables you to watch the video without an Internet connection. His chemistry with Scott Caan makes the series. Wasn't McGarrett suppose to be part Hawaiian? The show lasts for about one hour and usually concludes with a positive ending. Meanwhile, McGarrett, sensing that Stringer has such a picture in his possession, is trying to locate the elusive lensman, with the help of model Maren Wilson, in order to safeguard his life and use him and his film as escape-proof evidence against Alika. Over the course of the show, viewers will have the opportunity to learn about the situation in depth and have lots of suspense surrounding the story.
Love, love, love this show. I thought it odd that Hawaii 5-0 would open with a scene in South Korea. I think this is a great reboot. Alex O'Loughlin and Scott Caan are perfect. When McGarrett learns that three other identically-constructed banks have also been pillaged in a baffling way, the string of crimes lead them to the ingenious criminal.
