    In the preview it shows Danno has no respect towards Steve, and he actually punches Steve.Surprised From what I saw in the preview it looks like Danno is in charge, not Steve. Total insult to the original H5O. I knew that they were gonna screw it up.

    For crying out loud-are you really that dense?
    This is a typical way to start a new buddy series. They start them off as getting on each other's nerve and then they become best friends. Also, the preview clearly shows that Steve is the one that's been place in charge of this new team.

    looks like a great show. Can't wait until it airs.

    Please give the show a chance. It hasn't even begun. In interviews about the show, it was said that this is a reboot of the original; apparently to make it fit in better with the 21st Century. In the original, all the characters already knew each other and had been working together for years when the series started. This series starts with them all getting to know each other, and more then likely (as typical buddy shows go) they will not like each other in the beginning.

    So far, the trailers look good. As someone who grew up in Hawaii (and was a small kid when the series was filming), we are hopeful that this will turn out to be the first successful series based on Hawaii since Magnum P.I.

    Huh?
    I was born in 1966. Sounds like you are a kid, though :-)

    Danno needs to have more respect!

    Danno gave McGarret precisely as much respect as he was shown. McGarret trampled all over a crime scene without any legal right to do so to start with. And then he used his connection with the Governor to take over DANNY'S investigation.

    This isn't the original. Danny isn't some young, inexperienced, wet behind the ear rookie. So, his frustration with McGarret is completely understandable.

    By the end of the episode the two were beginning to see each other as equals. Which is more than I expected.

    I'm one of the faithfuls of the original too, and yet I can see why they chose this route and where it might be going. And I think its a good choice generally. I do agree that if there is some tightening up of these two characters to do...writing-wise...this is the area they need...and a little less cutsey-cutsey reparte.


    So far so good for me.

    I don't agree on that. While not perfect, the premiere certainly was not bad. It certainly kept to the spirit of the original. This is the 21st century. You can't get away with the stereotypes of 40-45 years ago. It just doesn't work.

    I watched original broadcasts of the last 2 seasons of the original, and even then while fun, it seemed a bit old-fashioned. Still fun, but dated.

    This show is going to be a bit more action oriented than the original. That isn't a bad thing as long as the writers manage to give the actors a decent story to work with.

    The first 3-5 episodes of any series are always the roughest. But this show has a headstart on must of the new shows. I'm looking forward to next week.

    I can see why the characters and stories fit more with what people want in modern dramas. What I don't see is WHY not try to intrigue fans of the older series by having this be a "next generation"? New characters, maybe one hold over like Chin's daughter as head of a crime lab or something. A picture of McGarrett in the lobby. If not, re-using the name is always going to be seen as "bait and switch" to older fans.

    I have never seen the original show, but this was amazing! The writing was witty, action believable and just the right mix of sexiness. Best buddy cop show since the short lived Fastlane.

    I am in agreement with other posters. I loved the old series, however, as usual these days.. everything in the new series is highly over acted and nothing in the way of quality or acting skills as the original

    I think you meant the opposite. The old show, as was typical in the those days, was very stylized. Poor acting was the norm. That's why people laugh when they look at the old shows. The lack of acting technique was painful!

    This new version is a lot better both in acting and directing. At least now the characters have personality and are not those one dimensional cardboard cutouts.

    I know.....remember "The Mod Squad".....?!


    The only reason I'm watching this show is because O'Loughlin's on it. I"ve seen Scott Caan before but it's interesting to watch him act....I don't know if he's purposely immitating his dad or not, but he sure has a lot of the same mannerisms. I do like how his and O"Loughlin's characters personalities clash, there's a bit of chemistry there.


    I usually stay away from any show on CBS....they all seem a bit cheesy and over-stylized, but I'll watch this one Cool

    Original series leave a legacy. Nothing will ever compare to a true fan of an original series. But this remake, is not so bad. I remember liking Hawaii Five-O first go around. But it's been years, and those memories have faded so I don't even really recall it anymore. So. I like this remake. It's got action, humor.. it's fun. Don't take it too seriously. Just sit back and relax.

    I have three complaints about the new Hawaii Five-O. So far, none of the episodes have had any revelations or plot twists in the closing 10 minutes that the audience did not know 30 minutes into the show. In other words, I'd like a little more mystery. Also, McGarrett is supposed to be in charge of the unit; Danny could show a little deference to his rank instead of acting as McGarrett's "partner." My third complaint would be the CSI-styleestablishing shots that don't contribute to the story in between scenes, as opposed to the jump cuts in the original series and other shows from the late '60 (e.g. Mission: Impossible). How much time do those shots kill? I'm still enjoying this series a lot more than NCIS: Los Angeles S1.


    I definitely hope the unmarked plane and the Czechans' Asian buyers were a foreshadowing of a new Wo-Fat.
