Fall TV Review: Hawaii Five-O

Even though there's much to love about this CBS reboot of the '68 to '80 original, the sum of the parts don't quite live up to the hype. The best parts are the opening (as was true of the original) and Scott Caan as 'Danno' character. I think Alex O Loughlin is yummy eye candy, but he doesnt quite nail what I expected the lead to offer. I also felt Grace Parks' role was underdeveloped. But hey, it's just the pilot, right? And it also says a lot that I will be watching the second episode (something I hardly ever do for a crime procedural). OH, and the visuals are top-notch. Hawaii has never looked so beautiful (sorry, LOST). B+
