Did You Know?


The character of Wo Fat, the principal arch-villain of both the 1968 original (as portrayed by Khigh Dhiegh) and 2010 rebooted series (as portrayed by Mark Dacascos), appeared just eleven times (in thirteen episodes, as some were two-parters) in the 1968 original series, over the course of twelve years/279 episodes, including the pilot (or first episode) of the original series, and the last episode in 1980, entitled "Woe to Wo Fat." In the 2010 reboot, Wo Fat was also introduced in the pilot (or first episode), but has already appeared in nine episodes, up to and including the third season premiere. To put this in perspective, in the original series, Wo Fat appeared in thirteen episodes out of 279, or approximately one out of every 21.5 episodes, but in the 2010 reboot, Wo Fat has appeared in nine out of forty-eight episodes (through season three premiere), or approximately one out of every 5.33 episodes, much more frequently than in the original. Both incarnations average between twenty-three and twenty-four episodes per season. See more »

"Get them off my Island"
20 December 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I can't say enough good about this show and its actors. All four of the major characters were well chosen and show a great range of emotions, allowing for considerable character development. In one episode, we learn more about where all four of them than we did in the original series from 1968-80. Their acting ability and range would allow for big screen versions of the show.

Instead of the squeaky clean and unrealistic, monotone characters of the original series, all of these people have "issues" related to the complexities and problems of modern life: long distance moves, job stress, living away from family members, political problems.

The plots of each episode move very quickly, and I am able to pick up new things watching an episode a second time.

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. Molokai, Kauai, and rural areas of Oahu have all been displayed in a beautiful radiant fashion. Having been there twice myself, I believe that every American should see this true paradise.

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. His chemistry with Scott Caan makes the series. They deliver without turning this into Baywatch.

It would be interesting to see Jean Smart, the governor, a bit more, but that might politicize the cases a little too much. The writers and producers have a long way to run with this thing.

"Get them off my island."
