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.

One of my favorite shows. Love the interaction between Steve and Danny - cracks me up all the time.
Great show, good humor, not exactly realistic, but who cares, when the cases are interesting, the actors are good, and the dialog is so funny!
If you were a fan of the original well this remake has live up to it with a distinguishable great cast and skills to prove that yes a remake was worth it, for those who never knew the original.
Some episodes are good, others are not so good. Overall a good show, but not one I'd highly rate.
love shows with great character dynamics. this show is among the top shows in that area.
Really like this show! Crimesolving in beautiful scenery - What's not to like? Love that there's also a bit of humour involved...
