Trivia

The car the group is seen driving around in is a 2010 or 2011 Camaro LT with a V6 engine, the RS performance package, and police lights added to the front end. McGarrett is seen numerous times driving the Camaro, although it's Danno's car. GM's Chevrolet Division is the motor vehicle provider. On Hawaii Five-O (1968), Ford Motor Company was the provider, with Ford Division and Mercury Division vehicles being used by Five-O personnel. However, the lead vehicle was always Jack Lord McGarrett's Mercury. For most of the first seven seasons of Hawaii Five-O (1968), Steve's car was a black on black (sometimes referred to as "triple black") 1968 Mercury Parklane Brougham four-door. The Park Lane was last used during the eleventh season of Hawaii Five-O (1968), where it sat in a warehouse for several years, the Park Lane sedan used in the early seasons was restored, and now is in the hands of a Chicago, Illinois resident. After season eight, McGarrett drove a 1974 Mercury Marquis Brougham hardtop sedan, and after Hawaii Five-O (1968) ended its run in 1980, Jack Lord gave the Marquis to his stunt double, John Boley Nordlum. On this show, that same car make, model, and color, 1974 Mercury, is shown being stored in the garage of Steve's house, and Steve explains to Danno that his father had been restoring the old Mercury before he was kidnapped. This is a tribute to the famous car McGarrett used in the later seasons of Hawaii Five-O (1968). See more »

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 »

Shows Promise but...
20 September 2010 | by See all my reviews

Let's start with arguably the best and most recognized TV score of all time. If the producers want to use the original theme song, then why shorten it? It reminded me of the truncated TV tunes of re-runs in syndication.

Now for the pilot episode. I thought it odd that Hawaii 5-0 would open with a scene in South Korea. It's like stumbling out of bed in the morning not exactly sure what you're going to do that day.

There are also seemed to be to much gun play and not enough acting. The dialog and some of the background setup (Danno's family situation, for example) was a bit too cliché. Some of the personal background could be better developed over time rather than cramming it into one episode while chasing the bad guys.

The overall storyline for the pilot was excellent, though. It gave background to 5-0's beginnings and it maintained a certain consistency and plausibility with TOS while adding the dimension of McGarrett and his father.

Some of the dialog resulted in an approving chuckle from me.

The episode began to gel about 2/3 in and by the end of the show, I felt comfortable with the main characters and looked forward to the next chapter.
