    Happy to see more local actors in tonight's ep. Also got a kick out of the scene in the lobby of the Kahala Resort when Chin and his cousin end up outside...it's still the Kahala Resort, and not the Ihilani or Turtle Bay or wherever!!! I wonder if Kono caught any waves at Waialae Beach Park!

    I agree with Scriv. I liked tonight's ep.

    The website TV By the Numbers keeps track of weekly ratings for every show on the tube. Now they have individual pages set up for every broadcast prime time TV show with each weeks ratings and a synopsis of each episode. Here is the page for "Hawaii Five-0":

    So far the program has a "medium" safe chance of not being canceled this season.
    I'm still here. Are you?

    12 seasons, from 1968 to '80.

    So far, the show is holding its own as far as ratings are concerned. The early Nielsen data for last night is encouraging.

    CBS moved into first in the 10 p.m. hour with 12.03 million viewers and a 3.5 demo rating for "Hawaii Five-0." ABC's "Castle" was a close second with 11.9 million viewers. NBC's "Chase" fell to 5.83 million viewers and a 1.7 demo rating.
    Basically, H50 is running neck-and-neck with Castle. But considering that Castle has the advantage of having the most popular Monday lead-in show (Dancing With The Stars) while CBS' sitcoms have been a been a mixed bag as far as ratings go, H50 fans can take heart that the show is doing very well considering the circumstances. Assuming the bottom doesn't suddenly fall out, I think Hawaii 5-0 is going to make it through the first season.

    Last night's episode was the best so far, in that it actually had a plot that made sense, with some good old-fashioned detective work and deduction thrown into in with all the high-tech electronics. Note to the producers: Whoever wrote this ep,..... that person(s) is a keeper. Better keep 'em around.

    And despite some of the comments written on this thread, I have to say,.... while the new Danno is more outspoken than the original, Scott Caan's character is the one who is more cautious and tends to play everything by the book. It's McGarrett who is more impetuous and acts like the loose cannon. Actually, the boss is the loosest cannon out of the entire 5-0 team. This makes for some interesting viewing, but as I earlier said,..... the only similarities between the original and the current series are the character names and the fact that the show is shot in Hawaii. That's it.

    I guess it's much harder now, with short attention, so much going on and cable TV too.

    Back then there was only 3 channels.

    So most of America "had" to watch Five-O.

    I always wondered, what about those who watched it on-line? Or DVR it? Does it count in the ratings?

    I'm starting to keep that in mind when watching it. It makes the show more enjoyable and I'm not consistantly comparing and fact checking with the old Five-O.

    It's just hard to "let go" of the old show.

    I still don't think they did a good enough shot in selling Hawaii. When there is break away shot before a scene, it's always people doing some kind of water activity or a aerial shot. Ok, we already know Hawaii has water. We know people surf. We know people cliff dive.

    It's not glamorous, or sexy the way other shows try to showcase Vegas or Miami. I don't mean ladies in bikinis . More like they need to make Honolulu glamorous and sexy.

    So whose Camaro is it? First, Dano is driving a silver Mustang. Then, McGarrett drives a silver Camaro. Now Dano's driving a silver Camaro.

    I would guess not. Driving an exotic would seem to be a requisite prop for an undercover cop posing as a highroller.

    Since McGarrett is still new to the job, I find the whole scheme plausible. But as time goes on and the profile of the Hawaii 5-0 team grows, I'm gonna start calling BS if future episodes continue to have McGarrett (sans disguise) going undercover against organized crime. I mean, c'mon, are viewers supposed to continually buy into the notion that mob bosses are too stupid not to recognize the state police chief trying to infiltrate their illegal activities?

    boy, you folks sure take something that is intended purely for entertainment and nit pick it to death! I'll continue watching the show because I'm just a dumb couch potato who only asks to be entertained. If I want something serious - I'll watch cable or PBS.

    I'm sure the TV producers are not car guys. They are both Silver and sort of look a like. Same smell to them. I know that would upset Ford vs Chevy guys.

    As mentioned several times in this thread already, the main reason is the Chevrolet is the main sponsor of the show. So they will have the good guys driving a Chevy... Camaro in this case. The HPD will be using Chevy Impalas as I've seen about 4 of them parked at the "studio facility" (former Honolulu Advertiser) building....

    In episode 2 the bad guys had a bright red 2011 Chevy Cruze featured so prominently in a shot where everything around it was blowing up.

    Sponsor + product placement = potential sales.

    I don't expect to see too many Ford cars in the near future on this show. Unless they are going to drive one down a cliff or something.
    I'm still here. Are you?

    I know Chevy is a big sponsor, but I keep nitpicking the Camaro/Mustang thing because it's fun. I'm a car guy, and in the same way noticing the Kukui/Iolani football field is fun for Kama'aina, the Camaro/Mustang thing is fun for us car guys.

    For example, I noticed Dano's Mustang in the pilot was a 2010 base model, but it had the "five-oh" emblems from the 2011 Mustang GT. The pilot was probably filmed too long ago for Ford to have given them a real 2011 GT, so they just put the emblems on an older 'Stang. It was an obvious fake for us car enthusiasts, but I figured they'd eventually have a real 5.0 on Five-O. Clever bit of marketing for Ford, I thought. I was a little bummed when Chevy turned out to be the corporate sponsor.

    So TWELVE MILLION people watched the show on Monday night and only FIVE people saw ME! (One of them is married to me and three of them I gave birth to so how could they miss me?) The other 11,995,000 of you must have blinked and missed the debut of my hair and side of my face in the snack bar scene. I'm also in this shot wearing the red Kukui Kings t-shirt shielding my eyes from the non-existent sun.


    Although I was only visible for a nano-second, and only to those who were looking for me - I had a great time being an extra on the show and would love to be involved again. I guess it's OK to post this now. GO KUKUI HIGH KINGS NUTS!

    Awww...sorry I missed you, KD! I was so busy watching Mike and Helen that I didn't scan the extras...except to look for one of the refs who was played by the office mgr. of my condo building! I really should DVR the show so that I can watch it twice for the actors and once for the plot!!!

    A suggestion to any of you who appear on camera in any of the episodes...announce it on HT a day or 2 prior to that ep airing so we can watch for you and critique you shielding your eyes or running from the bad guys or sitting at a bus stop or...whatever!

    From certain angles, Park and Hu does kind of look a like. They could be (older and younger) sisters.

    So who were the football players? Were they high school or U.H, or just regular guys (extras) that suit up?

    I've got the first 3 installments on DVD, if you're interested. I doubt I'll be continuing with this show because of the gratuitous violence and lack of intellectual stimulation.
    May I always be found beneath your contempt.

    Default The "new" 5-0 - is it really any different?

    I've been watching the latest Hawaii 5-0, and trying to figga out if it's gonna last the season, not get picked up for another year, o' wot ??! The thing is, so far it's just another cop show, full of the usual pretty people with a ton of attitude and acting real tough all the time. Steve Mcgarret, like his predecessor, is a straight arrow super patriot, and everyone else on the show revolves around him like satellites. Another obnoxious touch is the suggestion (although they don't show it explicitly) that 5-0 is once again located in the Iolani Palace, one of the more unpleasant parts of the old 5-0. I can think of a few more, but, anyone else?

    Heh. We are about to release a design that is inspired by, but is definitely not a direct copy, of that great "Lei O Mano" design. We're calling it "Lei O Kukui." A lot of people have asked for the logo seen quite prominently in the episode, and giving due props to the show's own graphic designer, hopefully our nut-based tribute will be a hit.

    I think I read somewhere that they couldn't use real football players else they would have jeopardized their "amateur" status.

    I think they're explicitly showing their HQ as being inside Ali'iolani Hale, the courts building across from 'Iolani Palace. You know, the one with a King Kamehameha statue in front?

    If anyone here thinks the the show is being dissected too deeply, I can only assume they don't belong to the Yahoo! Hawaii 5-0 Fan Club. Some major analysis and critiques abound in that forum.

    And when it comes to the original show, Mike Quigley has maintained the single finest fan website devoted to Hawaii Five-0 for over a decade now. If you read his episodic reviews, it gives you a taste of the kind of discussion that takes place in the Yahoo! group.

    The original H50 has endured well in syndication and fandom activity since the series ended 30 years ago because the stories and the creative talent were of high quality, for the most part. The show gradually began to lose some steam and inspiration in the last few seasons, and true fans like Quigley don't sugarcoat H50 "jumping the shark" towards the end. But while the show was at its peak, let me tell ya'. It had a lot more going for it than just actors running around in front of beautiful Hawaiian scenery. It needed to, in order to maintain a show compelling enough to last 12 years (and many more years after that, in reruns all over the country). Hopefully, the braintrust of the new H50 is able to live up to this legacy.

    You are totally correct - I don't belong to those fan sites. I just want to enjoy the program! and I am. If I happen to see someone I know or recognize a location, well thats fun too. but I always remember - IT'S JUST ENTERTAINMENT, JUST A TV SHOW, IT'S NOT REAL!!!!
