Hawaii Five-0 Stays in Tune with Original in More Ways Than One

Hawaii Five-0 fans can breathe easy. CBS' remake of the classic 1968 TV series features a surprisingly faithful interpretation of the original surf-rock theme song.

After originally bringing in a famous rock star to freshen the tune, the producers instead opted to bring back all the original musicians who recorded the song way back when. "It only affirmed for us that you cannot change it," executive producer Alex Kurtzman said at a Comic-Con panel Friday. "Not everything should be remake or rebooted. Sometimes you have to know what to change and what to leave the same."

Kurtzman and partner Roberto Orci know from rebooting. They're the big brains behind last year's Star Trek reimagining and the blockbuster Transformers movies. Still, the duo said they felt pressure to do the original justice. "There's an expectation from people who know the show," Orci said. "In a way, everyone becomes a consultant on the show because you can read what everyone thinks online."
