Trivia

During the opening credits (seasons one to six), the Hawaiian Airlines jetliner seen is an Airbus A330-200. Hawaiian Airlines signed a 4.4 billion dollar Memorandum of Agreement with Airbus in 2007, where the A330s have been used in place of their existing Boeing 767s for non-stop flights to the U.S. East Coast. The 767s in service will be retired after 2015 - three 767s were sold off to United Airlines (the previous airline sponsor of the classic series). Hawaiian Airlines was in the process of procuring the Airbus A330NEO (New Engine Option) but entered into a nonbinding agreement with Boeing where the airline ordered the 787-9 with an option to order 10 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 »

"Get them off my Island"
20 December 2010 | by wright7700See all my reviews

I can't say enough good about this show and its actors. All four of the major characters were well chosen and show a great range of emotions, allowing for considerable character development. In one episode, we learn more about where all four of them than we did in the original series from 1968-80. Their acting ability and range would allow for big screen versions of the show.

Instead of the squeaky clean and unrealistic, monotone characters of the original series, all of these people have "issues" related to the complexities and problems of modern life: long distance moves, job stress, living away from family members, political problems.

The plots of each episode move very quickly, and I am able to pick up new things watching an episode a second time.

While the pilot and first few episodes didn't take advantage of the beautiful backdrop of Hawaii quite enough, they sure have made up for that over the season. Molokai, Kauai, and rural areas of Oahu have all been displayed in a beautiful radiant fashion. Having been there twice myself, I believe that every American should see this true paradise.

I had never seen Alex O'Loughlin in anything before this series, and he knocks the ball out of the park with his modern, over the top, somewhat Neanderthal McGarrett, who pushes the law to the limit to win. His chemistry with Scott Caan makes the series. They deliver without turning this into Baywatch.

It would be interesting to see Jean Smart, the governor, a bit more, but that might politicize the cases a little too much. The writers and producers have a long way to run with this thing.

"Get them off my island."
