Did they think the nostalgia factor would attract new viewers? I didn't expect this show to be totally like the original series because, hey, this is a new day. Excellent action sequences, great gun fights, some entertaining relationships developing between the characters, and you know what? 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. Overall verdict: no better than the other crime dramas currently on the air but certainly promises room for improvement. Love Hawaii, love the scenery but not sure that is enough to keep me interested week in week out. This show feels like the antidote to all those forensic, gritty, supposedly realistic crime dramas out there today. . Now for the pilot episode.
Pure entertainment, nothing more, nothing less. The new reboot of Hawaii Five-0 is first rate from start to finish. 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. He is a master of his craft, and his experienced eyes can not hide from any criminal. 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. Now he is at the head of a team consisting of four people, including him.
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. 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. But what I did expect were story lines with meat to them. My brain can't take it! Also, Danny and MacGarrett sub as bodyguards for Danny's high maintenance ex-mother-in-law, Amanda Savage, a wildly famous romance novelist with whom he has never gotten along. I haven't missed a single episode, and eagerly await it every week! Guy who's been convicted of taking bribes has a cousin who is now in the police force? A guilty pleasure you say? The finale was awesome and as usual, I loved every minute of it. Just select the season below and enjoy high speed safe downloading without torrents and ads. 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's a slick looking production, in that it takes advantage of the locale and the attractive leads. The dialog and some of the background setup Danno's family situation, for example was a bit too cliché. If you were a fan of the original, you won't be disappointed at all. Jack Lord as Steve McGarret. Hawaii Five-0 is an American police procedural drama television series and a re-imagining of the original 1968—80 television series. But then again it is not a documentary. The writers and producers have a long way to run with this thing.
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. 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? Steve and Danno's bantering with each other is hilarious. Storyline: Definitely an action show, and it's done adequately. I like that they're in their 30's and not all 90210 on viewers. If you never watched the original series, give this one a chance. Danny, Chin Ho, Kono is a wonderful staff working under the direction of Steve. The idea of making Kono a girl is also a great idea.
It's a fine line to walk, but the writers did an excellent job in the pilot. 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. I think this is a great reboot. Makes for a fun show which also does not take itself too seriously. If they had made a show identical to the original I would have probably turned it off half way through. Having been there twice myself, I believe that every American should see this true paradise.
The building of the characters. The 4 main actors are excellent and they have a good chemistry together. Some of the personal background could be better developed over time rather than cramming it into one episode while chasing the bad guys. Sometimes things just go boom. Alex O'Loughlin and Scott Caan are perfect. All in all, I'm very much looking forward to the next episode.
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? Résumé de la série: Hawaii Five-0 est un remake de la série éponyme des années 60. But they are a good match with the scripts. You find out little bits here and there and already starting to get a better understanding of how a character is the way he or she is. I can't wait for season 7! I can't imagine anyone else having their roles. . Their acting ability and range would allow for big screen versions of the show. Steve McGarrett est un officier décoré de la Navy redevenu policier.
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. They intend to fight crime to the end, giving all forces to work. The finale was awesome and as usual, I loved every minute of it. It's on location on beautiful Oahu, with little studio time in it. 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. When recreating characters from an original series, it's inevitable that there will be viewers who object to the substitutes.
