Trivia

In NCIS: Los Angeles (2009) {Touch of Death (#3.21)}, the crossover episode with Hawaii Five-0 (2010) characters appearing on NCIS: LA, at the beginning of the episode, while on the NCIS government jet from Honolulu to Los Angeles, it is revealed that Danno's full title (with name) is Detective Sergeant Danny Williams and that Chin's full title (with name) is Detective Lieutenant Chin Ho Kelly. This would mean that Chin outranks Danno, even though Danno is ostensibly the second in command of Five-0 Task Force (and clearly in command since McGarrett has been AWOL since Alex O'Loughlin has been in rehab for the last 4-5 episodes of season two), which is the opposite of the normal order for those ranks, where a Detective Lieutenant would always outrank a Detective Sergeant. Further, in the new series, McGarrett is often referred to as "Commander McGarrett," a reference to his naval rank, while in the original series, while McGarrett continued to be a US Naval Reserve Officer, he was never referred to by his Navy rank, unless the episode involved his Naval connection. McGarrett was officially called "Detective McGarrett," and sometimes chief or head of Five-O, and Danno and Chin were only credited by their names, or occasionally referred to as Detective, but without a military style rank, and Danno was always clearly second in command, after McGarrett, without any ambiguity.

Goofs

The silver Camaro that is driven in the series is an RS model as is seen in the RS emblem in the front grill; however, in some scenes filmed inside the car, the headrests have the SS logo stitched into them. In other scenes, the headrests do not have the SS logo. See more »

I enjoyed the pilot episode, it's got some heart to it
21 September 2010 | by (canada) – See all my reviews

Actors: Main 3 are cookie cutter, nearly identical birth years. I like that they're in their 30's and not all 90210 on viewers. Storyline: Definitely an action show, and it's done adequately. Script: Solid. Some cheesy stuff, some wow stuff, some well acted scenes. A few roll your eyes moments, but that keeps in part with the way the original was.

Pros: The script writing. The acting. The actors aren't Hollywood good-looking. But they are a good match with the scripts. Subtle little moments of humour, that you have to see visually and/or hear. Something ha ha will be thrown in there when you least expect it. The building of the characters. You find out little bits here and there and already starting to get a better understanding of how a character is the way he or she is.

Cons: The filming of a fight sequence, taking on the bad guys was terrible. That's not a spoiler. You'd fully expect to see one, seeing as it was in a huge amount of TV commercials. It sucks because you can see the distance between them, when they are at blows with each other. The editing is a shambles, it's so crappy in the action sequences. Could be much better. Hire more qualified people, it's worth it.

The believability of some legal situations are a bit dodgy. That detracts, and makes it a little hard to buy into it. But then again it is not a documentary. It's a TV show that's there to entertain you. Watch yourself a reality show like Cops if you're going to harp on it.

Summarily. My take: I like it because it's fresh. The camaraderie reminds me (a little) of: some Starsky and Hutch, a dash of 21 Jump Street, and yes the feel of the original Hawaii Five-O is there. It's on location on beautiful Oahu, with little studio time in it. Outdoors: That's just how they roll on that island.
