This action-police-procedual drama is the remake of the 1968-1980 television series of the same name. Set in tropical Hawaii the show revolves around a special police task force led by former Navi Seal Steve McGarret and his very east coast partner Danny Williams. Chin Ho Kelly, a reinstated police officer, and Kono Kalakaua his newbie cousin. Extreme cases involving drugs or terrorism alternate with more personal cases like the conspiracy behind the deaths of McGarret's parents. In the end it is not only the job, but friendship and loyalty that connect the team.

Yay or Nay?

While Hawaii Five-0 deals with serious cases, there's also a lot of comedy involved here: be it the banter between Danny and Steve or the lunch breaks at Kamekona's shrimp truck, there's never a dull moment in this task force. Compelling background stories of the characters and the fantastic landscapes of Hawaii round off the picture. As a bonus Lost fans can be sure to see one or the other familiar face popping in for a visit.
