    Unless this series takes place between the 1940's to the 1960's I find this premise hard to shallow, unless of course there is some sort of disaster/sci-fi element that makes the rest of the modern world unable to find them. It could be as simple as a randomly occuring wormhole that starts in the Atlantic Ocean and puts the series characters in the Pacific Ocean. To time travel, different dimensions, Earth getting hit by comets that make the water level rises, spilled coffee that starts World War III, or to a different planet all together, take your pick folks.

    J.J. Abrams, isn't this the same person who does Alias? If so if one of the series characters is named Milo, then bet on the time travel angle going backwards in time.

    Like a lot of other people, I find it hard to get real excited about the fact that there are so many series in production. Each new series seems to outdo the other in presenting a tiki-exotic-mai tai-bikini view of Hawai`i. If anything, Hawaii Five-O, at least relatively speaking, did less to blatantly misrepresent the state than anything that came later (unless you count Lilo and Stich!).

    that's the point; escapist fare.

    I dunno; a major crime occurring once a week in Hawaii?
    Guys running around Honolulu in full dark suits!?
