Trivia

Several references to the Star Trek franchise (from the original series, spinoffs, and feature films with the original series and spinoff cast including the reboot) have been featured throughout the series - during Season 2 Dr. Bergman's VW 181 has a Warp 9 personalized license plate, while in Season Three George Takei guest starred as Chin's uncle (Takei appeared during the classic Five O back in 1975 during Season 8). Also Dr. Bergman's feud with Dr. Dhawan was over a Yeoman Janice Rand action figure which was revealed during Season 5. Supporting cast member Terry O'Quinn (Joe White) did appear on a Star Trek spinoff as a Starfleet admiral, and during Season 7, Rosalind Chao (Keiko Ishakawa O'Brien from DS9 and TNG) as the Governor of Hawaii. Main cast member Daniel Dae Kim did appear on Star Trek Voyager and Enterprise, and writers Roberto Orci and producer Alex Kurtzman (who are part of the Kelvin timeline Star Trek film series). Also, Peter Weller (who guest starred in Star Trek: Enterprise and Into Darkness as Adm. Alexander Marcus) has directed some of the series including the one which he directed (Hookman). See more »

Goofs

The HPD police cruisers used throughout the series are the civilian-spec Chevrolet Impala sedans (2006 - 2013 including the 2014-16 Impala Limited) seen with the HPD livery. The Impala squads seen throughout the series have the 5-spoke alloy wheels - which is not available with the 9C1 police package option (2006 - present Impalas come with 16 inch steel wheels with bolt-on center caps or the full-wheel hubcaps seen on the civilian 2000-05 base Impala - 2012-16 models came with 17 inch steel wheels). Commencing in Season 7 this also applies to the civilian-spec 2007-14 Chevrolet Tahoe and 2011-17 Caprice PPV (while the newer models are not sold to the general public the 2011 model or those with over 100,000 miles are being are being seen during Season 7).

Hawaii Five- O WOW !
1 March 2011 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I LOVE this show, LOVE it, its just the shot in the arm TV needs, its the complete antithesis of most of the other American shows we get here in the UK and its such a welcome contrast.

There are some superb TV shows on offer at the moment, Breaking Bad, Mad Men, genre shows like Dexter, Tru Blood and Walking Dead, all diverse, all excellent top draw entertainment.

Its the success of these shows that makes Five-0 such a great alternative, its fast paced, funny, has plenty of crash, bang, wallop and it looks great.

A guilty pleasure you say ? NO, this exactly what TV should be doing, offering choice, i hate reality and talent shows with every fibre of my being, but they cater to people who do like them, so i feel that i deserve an action packed cop show now and again.

Choice is the key factor in everything we do for recreation today, TV like it or not is a big part of peoples recreation, so its right that it should be offering a diversity of shows that appeal to all tastes.

As to the issue of remakes/boots, whatever, this tired argument ran out of steam on Battlestar Galactica, i ranted against the new one, then sat and watched it and realised that, you can like both, the hypocrisy cops are not going to kick your door down. If you like it, good, if you don't like it, good, but ranting about the revisiting of classics is like arguing with the weather. I used to watch the original Five-0 here in the UK (Saturday nights, ITV, late on) loved it, but i can find some room for the new one too.

This show has to get a second series, this is flat out brilliant TV, in the middle of a worldwide recession, political and social upheaval rife, the upbeat, take no prisoners, ass kicking note of Hawaii's favourite Five-0 unit is just the tonic.
