I think he is James Caan,s son.

Wow...you're right.

Now that I look at him...he looks ALOT like his dad.

Nepotism seems to Hollywood now.

I've been tapped to review and compare the new H5O with the classic in the next issue of Tiki Magazine. Praise Jack Lord and pass the ammo.
btw if you're a fan of the original series, you'll want to check out my Movie Nite at Tiki Oasis next month, 8/21. Be there. Aloha.

I saw the panel at ComiCon for the new Hawaii 5-0 series - writers, director, and a few of the cast. They answered every question right (in my opinion)- historical respect for the orginial cast and style, attention to setting (Hawaii is the 5th main character) but the clips were flat (blow this up, girl in bikini, blow that up, bad cop-good cop).

Oh, and Kono is a girl.

I'm still not holding out much hope for this one. Trying to keep an open mind, but not fond of remakes as they seldom capture the flavor of the original. And really now...there is NO...I repeat NO...replacement for Jack Lord!!!

Just saw this in Entertainment Weekly:

* Producers considered hiring a popular rock star to rerecord the iconic Hawaii theme, but they (thankfully) chose to work with the track’s original musicians instead. “You cannot change the original,” acknowledged Kurtzman. “It is the greatest theme.” And the best part? We’ll actually get to hear it! “CBS has been so supportive,” noted Lenkov, “with regards to us having a title sequence.”

So things are looking up....

I was also disappointed that the Kono character was placed with a hot girl....nothing against hot girls, but it was disappointing nonetheless.

I'll still watch it, because it's filmed in Hawaii.

Looks like it's on all week. I just set my DVR to record all episodes.

Sadly I don't hold out much hope for the new show. Modern network TV cop shows tend to be dreadful and formulaic. They are filled with young beautiful cops wearing $1000 suits. Even the bad guys are attractive. Worst of all, the writing is just awful. Network TV is dead.

I like The CLoser starring Kyra Sedgewick....a good show with a sense of humor.

I love Dexter too, tho, I'm not sure you could call that a "cop show".

I like Scott Caan, tho' I'm not sure I wanna see a wise-ass Dan-O...we'll see.

Hey I just saw an extended preview for the new Hawaii 5-0 here:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sb-ejxJEgqE


Not only is Kono a chick, but she's played by Grace Park, who played Sharon "Boomer" Valerii (Number so well on Battlestar Galactica. I have to admit, I'm actually getting kind of excited about this show!

I've already seen the pilot, and it was not very entertaining. Scott Caan was quite good but Alex O'Loughlin in the Jack Lord part is wooden. This is his third cbs series and whether he is a vampire detective, a doctor, or a cop, he plays the characters the same way. Granted pilots are hard to judge a show by, they need time to get a rhythm going but this show is just so generic and offers very little of the "cool" that was the original. It pretty much borrows the names and location and recycles them into another NCIS:LA
