Hawaii 5-0

November 17, 2010

I grew up watching the original Hawaii 5-0 and credit it for keeping me off drugs.  That showed made me think that any time you were high, you thought you could fly right off a cliff!  So of course, you would try and end up dead.  In fact, I’m thinking of bringing my children up on the show, as well!

So the original was good, and I have to say, the remake is much better!  The characters are more fun and much handsomer.  The stories are more interesting (from what I’ve seen).  I thoroughly enjoyed the pilot and consequently set up my DVR to record the season.  But I haven’t gotten around to watching more than two episodes.  Why not?  I’m not sure.  It could be that it’s just a busy (holiday) season for me.  It could be that I’m just not as interested as I was originally.  All I know is that I have yet to watch them, but I have not yet deleted them off my DVR.  They may stay there indefinitely.  If that status changes, I’ll let you know.
