Hawaii 5-0 2010 is no crime drama, and it's not meant to be. Actors: Main 3 are cookie cutter, nearly identical birth years. Outdoors: That's just how they roll on that island. But they are a good match with the scripts. It's also not its father, and anyone looking for a straight remake of the original classic is setting themselves up for disappointment. The writers and producers have a long way to run with this thing.
I can't wait for season 7! If you like it, good, if you don't like it, good, but ranting about the revisiting of classics is like arguing with the weather. 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? But then again it is not a documentary. Watch yourself a reality show like Cops if you're going to harp on it. 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. None of the lead characters share strong chemistry, although with further episodes this might improve.
Wasn't McGarrett suppose to be part Hawaiian? It's a slick looking production, in that it takes advantage of the locale and the attractive leads. 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? 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? 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. If they had made a show identical to the original I would have probably turned it off half way through. Archived from on June 20, 2011. 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. 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. 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.
It's on location on beautiful Oahu, with little studio time in it. What kid tries to say their dad's first name before learning daddy? Archived from on May 22, 2015. The fresh takes on the original characters are a breath of fresh air. 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. I like that they're in their 30's and not all 90210 on viewers. Having been there twice myself, I believe that every American should see this true paradise. 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.
Now we are introduced to the new Five-0 and what a pleasant surprise! 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. 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. A guilty pleasure you say? Face it folks, action, quick cuts and tight editing are here to stay. I think this is a great reboot. Some cheesy stuff, some wow stuff, some well acted scenes.
The plots of each episode move very quickly, and I am able to pick up new things watching an episode a second time. Did they think the nostalgia factor would attract new viewers? As of April 26, 2019, 215 episodes of Hawaii Five-0 have aired. Lenkov and Ken Solarz Teleplay by: Jessica Granger May 1, 2015 2015-05-01 523 8. Beating a prisoner to get information out of him? Their acting ability and range would allow for big screen versions of the show. McGarrett chooses as his partner and former Detective Danny Williams, and together McGarrett and Williams lead a team that includes Chin Ho Kelly, Tani Rey, Lou Grover, Lori Weston, Junior Reigns, Kono Kalakaua and Jerry Ortega.
Keep up the great work guys and you've got a watcher here! If you're a fan of the original series, your take on this revamping will probably depend on how much a purist you are. Cons: The filming of a fight sequence, taking on the bad guys was terrible. Oftentimes the show gels between the pilot and the follow-on episodes since there's so much time in-between to refine it, incorporate feedback and develop even more on-set chemistry between the actors. One of the other things I enjoy about the remake is the edge of the new show. He hasn't the same charisma.
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 a great cast and so far the story lines are very good. Danno is a hothead who is always going over the top. Lenkov Teleplay by: Sarah Byrd January 30, 2015 2015-01-30 513 10. 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. It premiered on on Monday, September 20, 2010, 42 years to the day from the premiere of the original show, September 20, 1968.
My ten year old daughter could write better stories than this. As far as some of the elements people have been bitching about like the governor offering full immunity to his group, so what? Alex O'Loughlin and Scott Caan are perfect. Molokai, Kauai, and rural areas of Oahu have all been displayed in a beautiful radiant fashion. The idea of making Kono a girl is also a great idea. My take: I like it because it's fresh. The editing is a shambles, it's so crappy in the action sequences. Kim April 4, 2014 2014-04-04 418 9.
Pure entertainment, nothing more, nothing less. I think the show is fixable, but they'd better do it soon. Archived from on October 23, 2014. The only thing missing is the persistent over-acting from Jack Lord, but that's a good thing. Makes for a fun show which also does not take itself too seriously. Hawaii Five-0 is an American police procedural drama television series and a re-imagining of the original 1968—80 television series. I thought it odd that Hawaii 5-0 would open with a scene in South Korea.
