HAWAII FIVE-0 is a contemporary take on the classic series about a new elite federalized task force whose mission is to wipe out the crime that washes up on the Islands' sun-drenched beaches. Detective Steve McGarrett (Alex O'Loughlin), a decorated Naval officer turned cop, returns to Oahu to investigate his father's murder and stays after Hawaii's governor persuades him to head up the new team: his rules, her backing, no red tape and full blanket immunity to hunt down the biggest "game" in town. Joining McGarrett is Detective Danny "Danno" Williams (Scott Caan), a newly relocated ex-New Jersey cop who prefers skyscrapers to the coastline but is committed to keeping the Islands safe for his 8-year-old daughter; and Chin Ho Kelly (Daniel Dae Kim), an ex-Honolulu Police Detective wrongly accused of corruption and relegated to a federal security patrol, who is also a former protege McGarrett's father. Chin's cousin, Kono (Grace Park), is a beautiful and fearless native, fresh out of the academy and eager to establish herself among the department's elite. McGarrett vows to bring closure to his father's case while the state's brash new FIVE-0 unit, who may spar and jest among themselves, is determined to eliminate the seedy elements from the 50th state. Peter Lenkov, Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci are executive producers for CBS Television Studios.

it's really one of the best crime shows on tv.it's so hot and exciting and you never know what will happen next,it's full of action and adventure and commander McGarret is really like a superhero,a hot hot superhero.
This is a pretty good light hearted action show. It doesn't take itself to seriously and I like that. Plus now, in season 5, two of its main stars are from lost and another is from Battlestar Galactica, so at least the cast is geek friendly. 7.5/10
I didn't realise that they actually film in Hawaii, until I was actually there :S
I really love that comes so close to the feelings of the people. You learn to really feel everyone working in the Five-0 team in depth. It's just like you are in it. It is particularly interesting that the inclusion of certain sentences in the language available in Hawaii.
