Episode List Posts navigation © 2018 CouchTuner. The idea of making Kono a girl is also a great idea.
Cons: The filming of a fight sequence, taking on the bad guys was terrible. Unfortunately for the thief, Mic Chandler, McGarrett apprehends him. Lenkov Teleplay by : Eric Guggenheim January 19, 2018 2018-01-19 814 9. 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. Anyone who enjoys shows that deal with crime and interpersonal relationships will likely find this show very appealing.
How much more tragedy will it produce, wonders McGarrett, unless he can track it down. . I think the show is fixable, but they'd better do it soon. 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? Wasn't McGarrett suppose to be part Hawaiian? 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. He is enlisted by Hawaiian Governor Pat Jameson to head a new task force with legal immunity to clean up the underworld of Oʻahu.
It's on location on beautiful Oahu, with little studio time in it. As a result the protagonists of the show will need to investigate crimes as well as look for ways to find the person in danger and also the perpetrator of the crimes. 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. Danny's path crosses with beautiful Mellissa Cole when she is charged with shoplifting and his life is further complicated when she is linked with a neurotic murderer whom McGarrett is seeking. Sometimes things just go boom. The actors aren't Hollywood good-looking.
Danworth and McGarrett rushes to build a case against the physician. Yep, it's called story-arc remember the key he found in the tool box? 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. All he did was stand back and watch as Danno had tantrums. That picture can destroy both Alika and Kramer. That detracts, and makes it a little hard to buy into it. It seems unbelievable that her character would land a job like this, fresh out of police academy and with no real police experience. They deliver without turning this into Baywatch.
My ten year old daughter could write better stories than this. Some of the personal background could be better developed over time rather than cramming it into one episode while chasing the bad guys. Jack Lord as Steve McGarret. Now as I look back, I find that the original I can't even watch anymore. My take: I like it because it's fresh. Watch yourself a reality show like Cops if you're going to harp on it.
And it begins to look as if he's right. The show lasts for about one hour and usually concludes with a positive ending. Overall verdict: no better than the other crime dramas currently on the air but certainly promises room for improvement. A guilty pleasure you say? In one episode, we learn more about where all four of them than we did in the original series from 1968-80. Daniel Dae Kim is fine in his role. If you were a fan of the original, you won't be disappointed at all.
I like this series a lot. If you never watched the original series, give this one a chance. But then again it is not a documentary. This show feels like the antidote to all those forensic, gritty, supposedly realistic crime dramas out there today. Lenkov Teleplay by: Sarah Byrd January 30, 2015 2015-01-30 513 10. Excellent action sequences, great gun fights, some entertaining relationships developing between the characters, and you know what? 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.
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. 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. Also, Tani and Grover investigate when a bag of human bones, discovered inside an abandoned storage locker, goes missing. Over the course of the show, viewers will have the opportunity to learn about the situation in depth and have lots of suspense surrounding the story. It ain't here in this show! 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. Face it folks, action, quick cuts and tight editing are here to stay. Something ha ha will be thrown in there when you least expect it.
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? Archived from on May 22, 2015. Archived from on February 9, 2012. Karl Rathman has been experimenting with forced hypnosis. Now we are introduced to the new Five-0 and what a pleasant surprise! I think this is a great reboot. The way it is now, I won't be watching it. Also, Tani wrestles with whether or not she will tell McGarrett about the murder weapon she found at Adam's house. I can't wait for season 7! Steve and Danno's bantering with each other is hilarious.
