Goofs

The dancers in the opening credits are actually performing native French Tahitian "'O 'tea tamuré" dance (female in traditional Tahitian grass skirt with hips rapidly moving to fast drumming in a figure 8) and the male performing the traditional "danse du feu", or fire dance, and have no relation whatsoever to traditional native Hawaii dances. The hula dance, the traditional native Hawaiian dance, does not feature drums, nor grass skirts, nor rapid hip movements; its costume is made of medium length, green "ti" leaves and its main focus is on the dancers' hands, by which they tell a story. No percussion for Hawaiian hula, but their music is the unmistakable ukulele sound. See more »

Hawaii Five- O WOW !
1 March 2011 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I LOVE this show, LOVE it, its just the shot in the arm TV needs, its the complete antithesis of most of the other American shows we get here in the UK and its such a welcome contrast.

There are some superb TV shows on offer at the moment, Breaking Bad, Mad Men, genre shows like Dexter, Tru Blood and Walking Dead, all diverse, all excellent top draw entertainment.

Its the success of these shows that makes Five-0 such a great alternative, its fast paced, funny, has plenty of crash, bang, wallop and it looks great.

A guilty pleasure you say ? NO, this exactly what TV should be doing, offering choice, i hate reality and talent shows with every fibre of my being, but they cater to people who do like them, so i feel that i deserve an action packed cop show now and again.

Choice is the key factor in everything we do for recreation today, TV like it or not is a big part of peoples recreation, so its right that it should be offering a diversity of shows that appeal to all tastes.

As to the issue of remakes/boots, whatever, this tired argument ran out of steam on Battlestar Galactica, i ranted against the new one, then sat and watched it and realised that, you can like both, the hypocrisy cops are not going to kick your door down. If you like it, good, if you don't like it, good, but ranting about the revisiting of classics is like arguing with the weather. I used to watch the original Five-0 here in the UK (Saturday nights, ITV, late on) loved it, but i can find some room for the new one too.

This show has to get a second series, this is flat out brilliant TV, in the middle of a worldwide recession, political and social upheaval rife, the upbeat, take no prisoners, ass kicking note of Hawaii's favourite Five-0 unit is just the tonic.
