Overall verdict: no better than the other crime dramas currently on the air but certainly promises room for improvement. Why call the two leads Steve McGarrett and Danny Williams when their age, appearance, mannerisms, behavior, and above all their relationship bear no resemblance whatsoever to Jack Lord and James MacArthur? The way it is now, I won't be watching it. The finale was awesome and as usual, I loved every minute of it. 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. I was a huge fan of the original Hawaii Five-O, so when I heard about this attempt at a new show, I was excited but skeptical at the same time. Love Hawaii, love the scenery but not sure that is enough to keep me interested week in week out. Cons: The filming of a fight sequence, taking on the bad guys was terrible.
They deliver without turning this into Baywatch. There were great guest stars too, including Hal Holbrook, Ed Asner, Hume Cronyn, and even Helen Hayes. Their acting ability and range would allow for big screen versions of the show. Wasn't McGarrett suppose to be part Hawaiian? It's on location on beautiful Oahu, with little studio time in it. Some of the dialog resulted in an approving chuckle from me. I can't wait for season 7! If the producers want to use the original theme song, then why shorten it? One of the other things I enjoy about the remake is the edge of the new show. Bring in Patrick Jane for an episode, then they can all chase Red John around Oahu or an hour, or is that too 'Mental' for ya Brudda? The plots of each episode move very quickly, and I am able to pick up new things watching an episode a second time.
The idea of making Kono a girl is also a great idea. Keep up the great work guys and you've got a watcher here! 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. If you were a fan of the original, you won't be disappointed at all. The new version just gives us periodic quick flashes of scenery some of which look like they are not real shots but artificially created ones. Jack Lord as Steve McGarret.
Beating a prisoner to get information out of him? When recreating characters from an original series, it's inevitable that there will be viewers who object to the substitutes. It seems unbelievable that her character would land a job like this, fresh out of police academy and with no real police experience. 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. Watch yourself a reality show like Cops if you're going to harp on it. The dialog and some of the background setup Danno's family situation, for example was a bit too cliché.
The believability of some legal situations are a bit dodgy. The pilot begins with an interesting premise that offers thorough background information on the origins of the team. . Makes for a fun show which also does not take itself too seriously. Molokai, Kauai, and rural areas of Oahu have all been displayed in a beautiful radiant fashion. A few roll your eyes moments, but that keeps in part with the way the original was. Don't get me wrong, James MacArthur's Danny was well acted, but that version of Hawaii Five-O was written about and around one person.
I didn't expect this show to be totally like the original series because, hey, this is a new day. Watch and see, I won't be watching. There are also seemed to be to much gun play and not enough acting. 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. In that respect, the new Hawaii Five 0 has a tough act to follow. Anyone who loved Jack Lord will find Alex O'Loughlin a poor substitute for Steve McGarrett.

Now we are introduced to the new Five-0 and what a pleasant surprise! Click does not host any videos or uploads any media files which is found here. Now as I look back, I find that the original I can't even watch anymore. 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's a great cast and so far the story lines are very good. The white actors were all wrong! As far the relationship between Steve and Danny goes, and going with the origins theme of the pilot, you're looking at two individuals being thrown together for the first time. 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.
I've never seen the original series, so that's why maybe I like it so much, since many who've watched both the original and remake aren't very happy. Hire more qualified people, it's worth it. 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. Its the success of these shows that makes Five-0 such a great alternative, its fast paced, funny, has plenty of crash, bang, wallop and it looks great. Excellent action sequences, great gun fights, some entertaining relationships developing between the characters, and you know what? I thought that the first episode might be a one off in terms of a formulaic plot development and story line and that it could only get better. Hawaii Five-0 is an American police procedural drama television series and a re-imagining of the original 1968—80 television series.
Some of the personal background could be better developed over time rather than cramming it into one episode while chasing the bad guys. I like this series a lot. But then again it is not a documentary. The 4 main actors are excellent and they have a good chemistry together. His chemistry with Scott Caan makes the series. I thought it odd that Hawaii 5-0 would open with a scene in South Korea. If you have any legal complaints please contact the appropriate media file hosters.
All he did was stand back and watch as Danno had tantrums. I think the show is fixable, but they'd better do it soon. 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. . Unfortunately, episode two has just confirmed my fears that the producers have gone for the easy option of buff guys and gals, nice scenery, nice cars and lots of noise in place of a decent story and any attempt at character development. 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 resent the attempt to use it to gussy up an otherwise conventional show that on its own might not last a year. 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.
