Remake, ros. Hope they keep the same theme.

I would be very surprised if they kept the same theme - exactly. Probably tweak it a bit.

I was a huge fan of this show back in the day. I watched some re-runs on a station, that plays old shows, and found that it did not stand up well after all these years. It seemed quite dated, much like, I would imagine, The Streets of San Franscisco would with Karl Malden.

When H 5-0 comes back, be prepared that it may not be so recognizable.

It is recognizable (I saw an article on YouTube), and they are keeping the theme music, at least substantially.

Ok, we'll see how it will play out.

I wasn't a fan of the old show and I'm skeptical about this remake.
Though I would LOVE to see a police procedural or private eye show starring Merry Andrew!!

Merry Andrew kicking ass and taking names while drinking spamtini's on the side and catching the ladies!!
Very Happy

I don't recall many episodes of that show either. I always go by the music.Like The Ventures.

Speaking of Merry Andrew, he and seaglass haven't been here in a while

How has Hawaii Five-O not stood up well? I think it has. The fashions and technology have changed, but the grittiness and suspense is there. They were ahead of their time in doing episodes with certain themes other shows weren't doing - rape, drugs, biological warfare, racism, corporate espionage, environmental issues, military espionage, STDs, and homosexuality. These themes were presented very realistically and sincerely, not trivialized like on today's shows.

I'm currently watching old re-runs of the show, and they're not too bad.

I remember being an avid viewer in the 1970s, but now, in my opinion, the acting seems a bit stilted in todays eyes. For it's time though it was good.

Also, in light of how current police shows are handled, the realism is very different and how the characters behave.

What many don't know is that:

Freeman offered Richard Boone the part of McGarrett, but Boone turned it down; Gregory Peck and Robert Brown were also considered for the part.
