Hawaii Five-0 Reviews & Ratings

Fridays, 9:00 PM ET on CBS

60 minutes

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.

Some things are just for the fun of it. Hawaii FIVE-O is just that.

Some episodes are good, others are not so good. Overall a good show, but not one I'd highly rate.

This review is based on the Season 7 pilot which aired 9/23/16.

Tonight's premiere of Hawaii Five-0 proves that seven seasons in, Hawaii is still one of the best shows on TV.

Now, Hawaii is a show with quite a few writers, given its long tenure, 25 episode seasons, and procedural nature -- and so naturally some episodes are better than others, but we've seen time and time again that when we get a good one, this show has a no-holds-barred approach that can deliver us some of the most existing and memorable action sequences on TV. Tonight's premiere was one of those episodes. It featured a near 7 minute long high-speed parkour foot chase that was unlike anything I've ever seen on TV. To put it simply, it was fuc*ing amazing.

The case of the day was about as gruesome as they come, but as a result, we're engaged, and the stakes are very high on this one. It also appears that there is a mastermind behind the whole ordeal, that will continue to pop in throughout the season (yay). We get to see the return of all the cast members, and Hawaii has some of, if not the best characters on TV.

We've got McGarrett - #1 TV Badass, stubborn, a little bit crazy, and the very definition of reckless.
Dano - Wisecracking, safeplaying realist, who can't quite process the craziness of McGarret.
Chin - The backup that never fails, always there when you need him. Also really nice guy.
Jerry - infectiously likeable, paranoid, conspiracy theorist, smart as hell
Grover - Matter of fact, reliable, family man, played by the extremely likable Chi McBride
Kono - Didn't do much on tonights ep, but she can fight well, and is great in a bind
And Dano's Crazy Cousin, who is a total Bro, and so out of place (purposely) that its funny.

All together we have the workings of an infinitely sustainable, fantastic show. Did I mention the action sequences are some of the craziest and most daring on all of TV?

Didn't think I would enjoy this as much as I do. Love the interaction between McGarrett & Danny - especially when McGarrett goes just that little bit further to get to the truth. I do wish they would get rid of Jerry & Catherine though.
