A remake of the show that debuted in 1968, the first series of the rebooted 'Hawaii Five-O" premiered 42 years later in 2010, reintroducing audiences to "Five-0" task force, led by ex-Navy SEAL Steve McGarrett (Alex O'Loughlin). The specialised law enforcement group, deemed necessary by Hawaii governor Pat Jameson (Jean Smart), also includes relocated New Jersey detective Danny Williams (Scott Caan), former Honolulu police officer Chin Ho Kelly (Daniel Dae Kim) and soon-to-be police officer Kono Kalakaua (Grace Park).

Critic Reviews for Hawaii Five-0: Season 1

All Critics (23) | Top Critics (14)

It's set in Hawaii. People chase each other a lot. McGarrett says, "Book 'im, Danno." And, aside from a few bars of the famous theme song, that's about all this overheated police show has in common with its famous predecessor.

September 20, 2010 | Full Review…

The story and the chemistry work, but periodically the action feels rushed.

September 20, 2010 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

The show feels enough like the original "Hawaii Five-0,'' which ran from 1968-80, to qualify as a respectful and affectionate remake of the material.

September 20, 2010 | Full Review…

All the requisite beauty shots, but the two leads steal the show. A winner.

September 20, 2010 | Rating: B+ | Full Review…
Top Critic

Totally over-the-top in all the best ways, Hawaii Five-0 is a textbook TV hit.

October 11, 2013 | Full Review…

I'm seriously thinking of putting together a team to free them.
