I'm growing to hate this show. It's violent, the stories are full of holes, the technology is fake as hell, the two lead actors need to learn to shave and stop dressing like douchebags, and worst of all the show furthers a message that anything that a cop does 'in the line of duty' like torturing a suspect, acting without search warrants etc is just peachy.

Ditto to that!

The new McGarrett is a slob. Jack Lord always looked sharp, even in the odd scenes when he wore aloha wear. And don't hold your breath waiting for the new guy to utter this immortal line: "I don't work for Washington, I work for the State of Hawaii!" (Jack Lord in season 3 of the original, in a face-off with some US military intelligence conehead over a cover-up by Washington).

The character updates are all so boring and generic. I hate the fact they keep making fun of Danno wearing a tie, though it's authentic, I guess - it just points up the sartorial inferiority of this era compared with the original's.

And I'll second that too! Another scene, remembered from my childhood, is of Jack Lord coming out of a barber's shop, and the barber says "see you next week Mr McGarrett!" As an eight year-old, I was impressed as hell that this guy went to the barber's EVERY WEEK!

That is good info Wendy...I am still trying to embrace this show. I agree that the guys need to shave and quit looking like bums. I was expecting WoFat to be older...so I find stuff like that distracting. Hope to see the mug though!!!

I like the series, I just wish they would stop adding new characters like you said and focus on the ones they already have. As for McGarret's lady friends I thought his Naval Officer friend was cool, I'd rather see more of her than the Homeland security woman or the CIA woman.

Killing off Kelly Hu was a mistake and they need much more Kono this season.

Other than those things, I'm happy with it.

I think part of making a show a "hit" these days, is guest stars. If you're gonna compare it to the original, which I don't see the point in...., they did that back then to....Ricardo Mantalban as a Japanese villain - yes, J A P A N E S E !!! - The actually used eye makeup to make his eyes look asian...talk about unrealistic !...
Anyway, they had all kinds of guest stars in there..Sal Mineo, Gavin McCleod, Don Ho.....etc You get the picture. Kelly Hu was hot, and shouldn't have been Killed off, I agree,and, tho' I HATED the fact that Kono becase a WOMAN in this new series, I like her now, and it gives my song "Kono's Revenge" a new meaning now, in this new season. (Originally it was in protest of making Kono a chick in this new series)

Either way, I don't care who likes it and who doesn't , I'm rooting for it, and will continue to watch it every week. So there !

Just started watching this last week. Not bad, ( the Kona storyline is really, really predictable) but I was impressed with the amount guest star crammed into one episode. Peter Fonda, Don Stroud, Danielle Harris, Patty Duke, and William Baldwin were all in Monday's episode. I guess everybody like a free trip to the islands.

I still watch this show every week and consider it a guilty pleasure. Sure, it's predictable (chat scene in the car, chase scene, bad guys hate kids, good guys love kids) and the acting is not fantastic (every time someone takes in emotional dialogue they take a quick look away from the person before responding- every time!) but my expectations for this kind of show are low. And the original show was no masterpiece. Anyhow, it's just simple fun, a like the scenery and try to find tiki.

I like it, too. It is great to see places in Hawaii that I recognize, and in High Def, too. I think the acting is excellent. Scott Caan was nominated for a Golden Globe award, and I think he deserves it.

Wo Fat is the mastermind behind everything, it seems. I like that they keep threads running through the entire series.

Oh, yeah, Grace Park is hot.

OK, I didn't read all 16 pages of this post so I apologize if this was addressed previously but I feel obligated to discuss it.
For the love of all that is pure and holy, can someone explain to me why there are so many haoles on this show? I mean, this is Hawaii. In 2011. There have got to be more Hawaiians, Pacific Islanders, Philipinos, Asians, etc to play the roles they have but it seems like every single time there's a new person on the show it's a haole. I've DVR'd the season and watched the one with Patty Duke, Peter Fonda and William Baldwin, etc. last night. Good Lord, you couldn't swing a dead cat in any scene and not hit a haole. And that's for the bit parts. The new cast members are all haoles too.
Granted, it could work to my advantage in my "Drink When You Spot A Haole" game.

Along with the Haole content comment, I still feel that is so little use is made of Hawaii as a specific location. So much is filmed in generic, could-be-any-place-with-palm-trees locales. Maybe they are trying to not force the issue afraid of coming across as cheesy, but why go there then in the first place?

But then that has been my feeling all along about the original 5.0, and about modern Hawaii in general: If you are looking for exotic Polynesian-style environs, you gotta build them yourself!
