Trivia

Danno makes a reference to McGarrett posing as James Bond - Alex O'Loughlin was in consideration as a replacement for Pierce Brosnan after he resigned the role from the series until Daniel Craig took over. This was not the first connection to the James Bond 007 franchise - the original McGarrett (Jack Lord) was the first Felix Leiter in Dr. No (1962) opposite Sean Connery (as the first on-screen James Bond).

Quotes

Steve McGarrett: You know when I was a kis, this island seemed like it was the safest place on earth.
Danny 'Danno' Williams: That's the great thing about being a kid, you don't know any better.
Steve McGarrett: You could leave your door unlocked. No one would bother you. And if people had a beef, they'd settle it with their fists, not guns.
Danny 'Danno' Williams: Back home, you win a fight. You go home, lock the door *twice*. Because you know someone's coming after you with a gun.
Steve McGarrett: God.
Danny 'Danno' Williams: Think maybe Hawaii's catching up with the times.
Steve McGarrett: Maybe.

Still Playing Catch-Up with the Pilot
9 November 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

After a pretty well-put-together pilot, I was pretty angry to see such a mess of an underwritten, poorly paced second episode. I was ready to write the show off completely, but at least this third episode made an effort.

It still has the hindrances of a typical police procedural-- minimum character development, necessary coincidences to streamline plot resolution-- but at least it was an entertaining hour of TV. More so than episode two.

With the exception of Danno, no character is really given much growth, though they put forth a medium amount of effort for Chin (Daniel Dae Kim) this time around. Good, but not great. Bonus points for Max Casella.
