Goofs

Several times in this episode, Dano and Steve are shown driving along a beach road with the ocean seemingly switching from one side of the car to the other. At one point, they are driving on a road with open ocean on both sides of the car. There are very few places on Oahu that this could be true, and they were not there. See more »

Promising beginning
22 September 2010 | by (Calgary AB Canada) – See all my reviews

I watched this show with low expectations; I liked Jack Lord and Wo Fat and the theme song. The theme song made my day! The cast is amazing; great casting from the lead all the way through. Good solid character actors doing what they do best: act. The writing is perhaps a bit derivative but it rather has to be; there are only so many plots.but the cast and writers make the best of it. Sure it is an 'odd buddy' movie but also one mixed with a touch of "Magnificent Seven" or "Chichi no Samurai". The interaction between these folks and the rest of the cast, in fact all the interpersonal relations, are well written. Good human relations without soap opera. The sketching of what makes Hawaii different is very well done, much better indeed than what I recall of the Lord series. So it is a very promising beginning.
