Too fast. Not enough solid story. Does not flow smoothly.
Well, I wasn't expecting Hawaii Five-0 but I did expect a decent cop show there with themes of the 21st century. This looks like Miami Vice action with better scenery. I didn't like Miami Vice and it is too early with one episode seen to make my final time slot decision. It is not the characters that are lacking. It is the storyline or lack there of. It was the pilot so you would expect the best. Another cop with a prize possession of a somewhat vintage car. Starsky & Hutch? CHiPs? How hard was this setup? Good cast so far and beautiful location for the show. This might work with some medium tweaking but it is an NBC cop show (doomed) and with a must have good viewer numbers rating needed within the first two to four shows, can they put it all together? And hey, if you're going to have a commercial every 3 ½ minutes for 5 minutes is it really worth your time? The 50% commercial time for prime time TV shows has many tuning out all together. Good luck producers. Pull up!
