The acting seems forced in a certain unemotional way, esp. with Steve's character lines.
I recently noticed it in other actors, as well.
But I enjoy the show. It's unique in its dead-body-findings...
Jerry was awesome at the beginning. I want to know a person like that, lol. I love how they still realize he's a conspiracy nut but see some truth in it too. I feel misunderstood like that too sometimes.
Best show and we love of the characters. We would like to see more of Danno and STeve together, but all the characters play great roles including Jerry and the Shrimp guy. The funny parts make the drama parts great. Look forward to seeing this show for many years.
Reads like a movie, especially the aerial shots. It captures the real natural beauty of the islands. The topicality, humor, interplay of Steve and Danno, with their very different backgrounds and personalities, make it special. All the characters really contribute. The only series I follow! Hope it continues as long as the original.

My favorite TV show is Hawaii Five-O. Glad they got rid of Catherine since she added nothing to the show. Adding Grover is certainly a tough-guy humor plus. They should eliminate Jerry who is nothing but annoying and makes me want to turn the channel while he is on screen. The original cast is surely the best with the addition of Grover. If it "ain't broke don't fix it" applies here!
I love this show. I never got into the original, but I'm assuming it's awesome. My problem is with the newer characters. Catherine adds to the cast, but I think that Grover interrupts the central Danny-Steve bromance, which is the heart of the show, and Jerry is a slapstick addition. He is given a very big role, but doesn't have the character depth to pull it off. This is just my opinion, but I preferred the dynamic of the earlier seasons...
I cant wait till it comes on this is much better than the original, not that the original was poor!! but here we have laughter, lumps in your throat and Respect, something that is missing from tv and BRITAINS youth nowadays
I watched the original show with my father when I was a child. So when I heard they were re-booting the show, I hoped it would have all the elements that I loved forty odd years ago. There's been some criticism that it's not a faithful copy of the original, to be honest, that is what makes it good. It's a re-imagined series, not a copy. In Alex and Scott they have the dream team, two actors whose on-screen chemistry sizzles in every scene. The mystique of the Steve and Danny Bromance is one of the best bits of the show, which has wit and charm not just action and adventure. A more than fitting tribute to what went before.
Can't wait for the fall and a new show, it's the only series I ever long wait between seasons. I like that it rolls along from case to case. Some of Scott's scathing humour seems to be at awkward times, I'm sure a Navy Seal wouldn't be listening to it at critical moments. Was there in December & wish I was able to get to the filming for the Pearl Hbr taping but could not my biggest loss while there :( my dad had been there & left Dec 6, 1941, so there's a connection with me.
First of all I have to admit that I am only watching because of Alex O'Loughlin . Steve McGarrett). He is just soo cute and handsome and attractive and... But I also love the Dialogue between Steve and Danno and I also like the family vibe, that the whole five-0 team has. Some episodes are better then others. I rather prefer those episodes that include more private scenes about the characters and certainly wish that we will see more of especially Steve's private life eventhough or maybe because Michelle Borth is leaving (aka the girlfriend).
Who Ever wrote the script for "Steve's Mother' failed completely to understand the character is "Harder" than portrayed.
More recently - the roll of "Dano's Mother" done by Melanie Griffith actually made my head hurt.
Has she ever been to the East Coast? Has the Writer ever been to the East Coast?
Her Manners / behavior were strictly CA - The words she spoke were too soft for anything coming out of Jersey. - Geeze - if your gonna try to sell this rubbish at least find some Soprano's CD's and get the characters background closer.
What are they doing to Kono?
She was a decent roll model for kids - but given the rubbish that fell from her mouth during the most recent episode (Both inhumane, cruel - etc). She no longer qualifies to be a roll model for anyone not currently in prison let alone the youth of America.
I can no longer consider Hawaii Five-O to be "Family Orientated" unless one is a member of The Mansion Family...
I agree with the gentleman that this show is generally extremely lame. The information on guns is generally off target, the way they talk is very unprofessional. Not bad plots and story lines but acting the reality of the show is really lacking in today's world.
I have loved this show since episode one. It will always be fun, exciting and suspenseful. My favorite character is Steve. I love his background story and his lack of fear ;). Also, Alex O'Loughlin is so attractiveee
Who ever is the tech advisor for guns, ammo etc should be fired for gross incompetence. Most of what they say is a joke. As a retired cop and firearms instructor I can also tell you that cops also don't talk like that to one another. This show is like a fairy tale for those who want to escape all semblance of reality.
