Skip to comments.Ultra-Patriotic “Hawaii Five-0” One of the TV Season’s Best Surprises
Posted on 11/06/2010 4:38:51 PM PDT by HorowitzianConservative
When I first heard there was to be a Hawaii Five-O reboot with younger actors, my first reaction was the groan of a man tired of television and movies mining his childhood to mostly lame and usually campy effect.
Not that the original Hawaii Five-O holds up incredibly well, probably ranking somewhere between Kojak and Colombo. The Wire, it aint.
And neither is the new series, but it is lively, witty, beautiful to look at and just plain fun. Its like a bigger budget version of the USA Networks best (and also quite retro) shows, Burn Notice, In Plain Sight, and White Collar.
And like those shows, Hawaii Five-O is very patriotic. Its also multicultural in the only good sense of the word.

Just started watching it. It comes on opposite “Castle” but I record it and watch it later.
” This isn’t the only show that’s been emerging recently with conservative themes. “
The real surprise, to me, has been the “Law and Order - Los Angeles” series....
While not exactly ‘right-wing’ by our definition - compared to the rest of the L&O programs, it’s just this side of Goldwater....
Are they going to do an episode on birth certificates?
“This isn’t the only show that’s been emerging recently with conservative themes. “
Can you name a couple of others? I have trouble finding anything worth watching these days, so any recommendations would be appreciated.

Blue Bloods with Tom Selleck.
Hey, he was in another Hawaiian show - Magnum PI
Forsmark mentions some in his post.
Sorry .... Rules ....
Funny thing is, I had trouble finding this pic.
In most of the pics on Google images, she's wearing considerably less.
Thanks, I’ll check it out. I always liked Tom Selleck.
Whoops, you beat me to it.
Ah well, the rules can’t be observed too often in this case, now can they? :-)
CBS has a few episodes of the new Hawaii Five O and Blue Bloods available for online viewing:
Burn Notice starts new episodes on November 11. Hulu.com and USA Network will have episodes available for online viewing usually a week after the air date.
Without the Original Hawaii 5-0 there would have been no Magnum PI.
I like it. It’s a great show. Never watched the other one much.
Blue bloods is great. No main character. They are all good.
I was prepared to watch the opener and go “Oh well, didn’t think it would all that”.
I watch it every week and it’s a terrific show. Loved how they weaved the foundation of each character such as how Dan-O got his name.
Good action and pretty good stories.
She is HOT!!!
Lover her smile.
