    Default Hawaii Five-0 (2010) - Who's watching?

    I was curious whether anyone else here is watching the new Hawaii Five-0 remake with Alex O'Loughlin, Scott Caan, Daniel Dae Kim, and Grace Park.

    It's quickly (and surprisingly) become of my new favorite shows. What do you all think? Any other fans on the board?

    I enjoy it, even though it's a pretty shallow show.

    I kinda like the irony that scott cann is hte only actor that wasn't in a genre show (you got a vamp, korean assassin and cylon ...and then danno)

    You can almost set up a drinking game on

    Kono getting undressed
    McGarrett taking off his shirt
    McGarrett smacking someone
    Daniel Dae Kim riding on his cycle/using the computers
    Danno playing hte moral conscience and calming, if sarcastic, presence.

    It's fun

    So true. On all points. I hadn't actually thought about that, that SC was the only one not a genre actor.

    It's definitely not a deep show. Not a show you want to watch for the plot - let's just put it that way. But I've found it to be fun so far.

    no I don't watch it... *looks at Skydivers post* But maybe I'll start

    Sounds like a male version of Bay Watch or something

    Yeah I watch it and I have to agree with the general notion of it being a shallow popcorn cop show.

    I watch it but rarely watch live. If i've got the choice of watching Five-0 or Castle, I'll choose Castle every time!

    yes. castle wins out for a live watch. much more fun and 'deep'
    I meanm grace park is very pretty but i get tired of the persistent 'girls in skimpy costumes' sexism, so i give my first attention to shows that pander a bit less.
    but, like I said, it is fun and not as shallow as the later seasons of baywatch

    I agree fun show. Although i watch way too much cheesy entertainment, so what do i know?

    Couple of niggles:
    Spoiler:
    a) am i the only one who thinks that they have a VERY large office for just four officers?

    b) WHO OWNS THE SILVER CHEVY!?! And if its Danno, WHY does he let McGarrett drive it so much!?!



    And yes Grace Park is ssoooo there to do Shakespeare *cough cough*



    ps: all this talk reminds me of a sig i once saw on another forum, stating that "Stargate SG-1 was a great cop show...." I don't know weither they were being sarcastic or truthful...

    Spoiler:
    Yes, the Camaro is Danno's car. Theres an episode somewhere where they were arguing about who was driving it. Danno has post cards from Jersey posted up in it because he misses home.

    Why did they move a new episode onto Sunday instead of the usual Monday? I'll just watch it on CBS.com

    To give it a promotional boost. The game yesterday was expected to have huge ratings, so it's a way to hopefully get new people to try out the show.

    ok, i did miss the beginning so I may be wrong

    but the plot
    Spoiler:

    a tsunami coming towards the island...well tsunamis are waves generated by seismic events, volcanoes, earthquakes, massive landslides....so why all the 'is there a tsunami' stuff if there was no earthquake to trigger it?

    and 'the tsunami picked up speed?'

    really?

    yes, i need to watch it from the beginning but did they really lack the googling skill to have some idea what they're writing about? If so, well then it confirms the 'turn off your brain and enjoy the pretty pictures' attitude

    In the beginning right after the credits in the scene
    Spoiler:
    with Steve and Catherine one of them says something about it having been triggered by a massive underwater landslide, if I remember correctly. Of course that was apparently all incorrect information. But that's what they believed in the beginning.

    yeah, i watched it this morning

    Spoiler:
    so they did say 'apparently triggered by an underwater landslide'

    of course, in the real world, seismographs would have been consulted to see where hte quake/slide was....and they'd have known within minutes

    In fact, it wouldn't surprise me if verifying the existence of a quake isn't part of hte tsunami warning system....the alarms are sounded once they have info from the buoys AND seismographs telling them were the event happened...cause distance from the island is one of the factors in how big the wave might be...obviously closer is worse


    BUT

    kono was in her swim suit, Danno got to snark, Chen said 'cuz' and McGarrett got to save the day....so all episode criteria were met

    I've liked Alex O'Loughlin since "Moonlight", so if we had CBS here, I'd watch it.
