Some of the dialog resulted in an approving chuckle from me. Some cheesy stuff, some wow stuff, some well acted scenes. Actors: Main 3 are cookie cutter, nearly identical birth years. All he did was stand back and watch as Danno had tantrums. Something ha ha will be thrown in there when you least expect it. The pilot begins with an interesting premise that offers thorough background information on the origins of the team. Having said that…the series would work better if it had created new characters.
Watch yourself a reality show like Cops if you're going to harp on it. 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. Danno is a hothead who is always going over the top. Archived from on February 9, 2012. What kid tries to say their dad's first name before learning daddy? Would it deserve to be called 'Hawaii Five-O'? 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. Wasn't McGarrett suppose to be part Hawaiian? The 4 main actors are excellent and they have a good chemistry together.
The way it is now, I won't be watching it. 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. But they are a good match with the scripts. Tassler Teleplay by: Peter M. By the way, speaking to the post-55 demographic: You have decent viewer numbers, so you if you want your old timey shows, then you're going to need to pony up the money and buy what sponsors advertise, that's the only way you'll get respect.
When recreating characters from an original series, it's inevitable that there will be viewers who object to the substitutes. Also, Tani and Grover investigate when a bag of human bones, discovered inside an abandoned storage locker, goes missing. 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? Storyline: Definitely an action show, and it's done adequately. Watch and see, I won't be watching. Lenkov Teleplay by: Ken Solarz November 12, 2012 2012-11-12 305 7.
Alex O'Loughlin and Scott Caan are perfect. I didn't expect this show to be totally like the original series because, hey, this is a new day. All in all, I'm very much looking forward to the next episode. Other guy is kicked out of police force because they say he took bribes, but he says he didn't then McGarret just let's him back in? Daniel Dae Kim is fine in his role. A guilty pleasure you say? 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. One of the other things I enjoy about the remake is the edge of the new show. Lenkov Teleplay by : Eric Guggenheim January 19, 2018 2018-01-19 814 9.
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. Lenkov Teleplay by: Sarah Byrd January 30, 2015 2015-01-30 513 10. 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. The plots of each episode move very quickly, and I am able to pick up new things watching an episode a second time. Archived from on May 22, 2015.
How could she pass a background check if her cousin had been kicked off the force for taking bribes? 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. I think the show is fixable, but they'd better do it soon. Now as I look back, I find that the original I can't even watch anymore. Lenkov November 7, 2014 2014-11-07 507 8. It's like stumbling out of bed in the morning not exactly sure what you're going to do that day.
The building of the characters. Lenkov Teleplay by : Shane Salerno April 18, 2011 2011-04-18 121 11. I'm also excited because this episode was quite good and it was only the pilot. The white actors were all wrong! It's on location on beautiful Oahu, with little studio time in it. 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? The believability of some legal situations are a bit dodgy.
