Whoever came up with the crazy idea of trying to make what is basically a conventional cops-and-robbers shoot 'em up blow'em up show special by linking it to one of the classiest shows ever produced should have his membership card in the scriptwriters union revoked. If you were a fan of the original, you won't be disappointed at all. Sometimes things just go boom. Now as I look back, I find that the original I can't even watch anymore. But they are a good match with the scripts. Episode List Posts navigation © 2018 CouchTuner. I think this is a great reboot.
None of the lead characters share strong chemistry, although with further episodes this might improve. Steve and Danno's bantering with each other is hilarious. 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. It's like stumbling out of bed in the morning not exactly sure what you're going to do that day. Yep, it's called story-arc remember the key he found in the tool box? I like that they're in their 30's and not all 90210 on viewers. How could she pass a background check if her cousin had been kicked off the force for taking bribes? The writers and producers have a long way to run with this thing.
In one episode, we learn more about where all four of them than we did in the original series from 1968-80. As far as character development I don't know whether some of the reviewers here have been living in a cave but television shows today employ a story arc across several shows to flesh out the characters. Cons: The filming of a fight sequence, taking on the bad guys was terrible. I'm also excited because this episode was quite good and it was only the pilot. Danny and Steve visited the restaurant and found a container with fish from the recent catch and while sifting through the fish, Danny found one that contained the bullet that had killed the fisherman. The overall storyline for the pilot was excellent, though. The pilot begins with an interesting premise that offers thorough background information on the origins of the team.
Them's my creds and my advice is to ignore the reviewers here dissing the show because it isn't like the original. 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. A few roll your eyes moments, but that keeps in part with the way the original was. This show feels like the antidote to all those forensic, gritty, supposedly realistic crime dramas out there today. I also like the more combative Danny in this version as I always thought the old Danny was more of a doormat. That detracts, and makes it a little hard to buy into it.
Les voilà avec un crime à élucider. 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. The building of the characters. 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. Keep up the great work guys and you've got a watcher here! I didn't expect this show to be totally like the original series because, hey, this is a new day. Alex O'Loughlin and Scott Caan are perfect.
Danno is a hothead who is always going over the top. Something ha ha will be thrown in there when you least expect it. It's a slick looking production, in that it takes advantage of the locale and the attractive leads. All four of the major characters were well chosen and show a great range of emotions, allowing for considerable character development. 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. Hire more qualified people, it's worth it. In that respect, the new Hawaii Five 0 has a tough act to follow.
Hawaii 5-0 2010 is no crime drama, and it's not meant to be. Outdoors: That's just how they roll on that island. Some cheesy stuff, some wow stuff, some well acted scenes. Makes for a fun show which also does not take itself too seriously. All he did was stand back and watch as Danno had tantrums. If you never watched the original series, give this one a chance. The believability of some legal situations are a bit dodgy.
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. 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. Now we are introduced to the new Five-0 and what a pleasant surprise! My take: I like it because it's fresh. 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. If you're a fan of the original series, your take on this revamping will probably depend on how much a purist you are.
It's a fine line to walk, but the writers did an excellent job in the pilot. 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. They deliver without turning this into Baywatch. Some of the dialog resulted in an approving chuckle from me. . If they had made a show identical to the original I would have probably turned it off half way through. Why include an abbreviated version of the original theme music? I can't wait for season 7! It ain't here in this show! There are also seemed to be to much gun play and not enough acting.
