The Binge Watcher Review: Hawaii 5-0

Hawaii Five-0

The series covers the actions of a small special state task force in Hawaii, headed by Lt. Commander Steve McGarrett, USNR as it investigates crimes ranging from terrorism to kidnapping. McGarrett chooses as his partner Honolulu P.D. Detective Danny "Danno" Williams. He fills out the team by selecting Chin Ho Kelly, his father's protégé, and Chin's cousin, Kono Kalakaua, a rookie H.P.D. cop. They are assisted by Dr. Max Bergman, a medical examiner for the State of Hawaii, and Jerry Ortega, Chin's high school classmate and conspiracy theorist. Steve later adds Lou Grover, a former H.P.D. SWAT commander, to the Five-0 team.

The last episode of a season is a Binge watchers worse nightmare, at first you panic and than after the initial shock wares off the real work begins. The search for a new show. You pull up Hulu and netfilx and you begin the difficult journey of trying to find that perfect new show to watch. Like most people, this has happened to myself multiple times. Every time i began the search there were always those show I past over, I laughed to myself and thought “there is no way I will ever watch that show”. For me that was Hawaii 5-0, there was no way I would watch a remake to what I consider a cheesy 80’s show. Than the inevitable happened, I ran out of interesting content. Best thing to happen.

Hawaii 5-0 who are currently on their 6th season, follow an elite task force while they protect the Islands of Hawaii. Through the first 4 season the main team consist of Steve McGarrett, Danny Williams, Chin Ho Kelly, and Kona Kalakaua, while the 5th and 6th seasons added Lou Grover. Now each episode obviously has some sort of threat or attack; however unlike most television shows Hawaii 5-0 has had a series storyline instead of an individual season story. The other aspect of the show which i have really enjoyed is the lack of drama between the main characters, most other shows try to create drama by causing some divide. This show is all about family for the main cast, they always seem to have each others back no matter what, it also pays respect to veterans of the US Arm Forces with a lot of stories which tie in the attacks at pearl harbor. Finally the show has some of the best supporting characters you can ask for.

Final thoughts, Hawaii 5-0 is great show. I love watching it on Netflix and I am glad I gave the show a chance. I have recommended this show to many people and if you haven’t yet make sure to check it out.
