I'm not sure if the new version of Hawaii Five-O has reached Europe yet but it's well into its first few episodes of the new series here. I haven't managed to watch any of the episodes all the way through yet and to be honest what I've seen so far hasn't impressed me, but most US TV series don't impress me. (Don't get me wrong, there are some US sitcoms I adore!).
One thing I do like - they have made a real attempt to re-use what has to be one of the most memorable TV theme tunes of all time.
Maybe I'm just thinking of my childhood, but Steve McGarrett's Hawaii Five-O is what I grew up with - my father and I used to sit down together and watch it every week when it was shown on British TV. Little did I know that a couple of decades later I would actually live there.
Well, I live on a different island, most of the original series was set on Oahu and in the city of Honolulu, but just occasionally they'd venture off to the neighbour islands. I think I might watch one of the new episodes if I knew in advance it was set on the Big Island.
Anyone know if such an episode is coming up?
Book 'em, Danno.
