I figure its an ok time waster, some good dialogue and enough gun play to keep me awake. Some of the gun stuff is typical Hollyweird of course.

But one thing I found interesting in watching last nights Pilot episode after the Superbowl was that McGarrett actually RELOADED his SIG!! At least in 3 instances he slammed another mag into his SIG and was clearly shown to do so.

It was a welcome change from the usual "unlimited capacity" pistols on TV - BUT - at 15 rounds per mag for his 226 it almost seemed like he re-loaded TOO often :supergrin:.

Did they book someone for "Murder One"?
Once on the shield I saw some really good gun handling. Vic (not vic777 but vic) fired 3 shots in one room, as he proceeded to the next room he ejected his magazine and put it in his pocket he then put another "full" mag in his pistol, this was all done, as smooth as silk and didn't waste a second. It blew me away ... you had to actually look closely to see it.

The only good thing on that show is the theme song. At least they didn't screw that up. The oriental chick is anorexically built. She's even skinnier now than when she was on Battlestar Galactica.

The new Steve McGarrett is to young for the role.

It's about the only decent action-chase show currently on TV..

...and the helicopter shots- Missouri to Arizona (at Pearl) ... to die for in HD ! .....:supergrin:

I never saw the original series, I was way too young at the time. Gotta say I really like the new one. The dialogue is pretty good and seems to flow well. I like the whole "Dano, kid,ex-wife" story line, and the gun-handling has been pretty accurate as far as I can tell.

I agree it seems like he reloads a lot, but maybe that's how you're supposed to do it. I've never had any formal training so I don't know.

I've seen a few episodes. It's OK to watch to blow some time. Grace Park is easy to watch.

My thoughts exactly. Grace Park is easy to watch. Can't nearly compare to her performance on BSG, but Hawaii 5-0 is fun enough.

Heck yes and if people think she's too skinny then watch that Mike and Molly show.:rofl::rofl:

^^^ This!

Plus he has ZERO police experience. I don't think that being a SEAL means that you are automatically qualified to be a police investigator. . Plus they keep calling him Commander (his navy rank). Seems like if your going to have a badge that somewhere in there, there has to be a PD pay grade / rank.

Is Navy Commander higher or lower than Senior Detective? Deputy Chief? Watch Commander? :dunno:

Opposed to NCIS LA this week where the chick cop declares that it will take the bad guy "5 seconds to change magazines because he has a machine gun". As if it is some published rule than cannot be broken. :dunno: So she waits until his mag is empty then charges his position while counting "5. . 4. . 3. . 2. . 1" Then shoots the guy dead before he can reload. . .

Well I'm no expert, but I can change a magazine in less than 5 seconds. Probably closer to 3+. And I've seen videos of people who are a LOT faster than me! I'm guessing that most people who shoot a lot, are faster than me!

Good thing she didn't run into one of those guys! "5. . 4. . OH CRAP!!"

The plot, characters and overall show is just as bad as the original 5-0 back in the 60s & 70s but the new show's scenery in HDTV is awesome.

It's a very entertaining show, and that's what TV is for.

My favorite new show on TV is Chase, but I doubt it's gonna get renewed. Gun handling on that show is the best I've ever seen on TV.

My wife loves hawaii 5-0 so I watch it by default. I have to admit the girl is hot, the scenery is beautifully shot and I even like the camaro cop car.

The thing I dont get is in the pilot they show the girl graduating from the academy so she is a rookie obviously...yet they have her working on a special governors investigative detail, busting down doors (always in civilian clothes) etc etc and doesnt do even one day of FTO or ever wear a uniform? She is the luckiest rookie I have ever seen!

Also, how is it that a Navy SEAL is the supervisor of 3 cops?

And lastly for the folks that live or used to live in Hawaii, they show them in hot pursuit on Kam hwy heading to North Shore...then the next scene they are in Kahala? You mainlanders wont even notice but thats totally in the wrong direction on different ends of the island! And McGarrett is supposed to be a local boy but his pidgin is so haole sounding. They need a better pidgin speaking adviser lol.

Tactical reloads. May not be at slide lock, but as the opportunity arises, he reloads.

Skinny Asian chick? :rofl: She can wax my board anytime.

I saw the first three episodes and was a bit bored to be honest. Seemed a bit trite and a bit unoriginal - like when you can tell what's going to happen a minute or two before it does. Anyhow, the first several episodes of most shows I end up liking aren't all that great, so I figured I'd rent the whole 1st season if they got renewed for a second. Lately, whenever I get into the 1st season of a show it gets cancelled, so I wait until I know if it's getting renewed before I invest in it.

McGarrett on the original series never missed an opportunity to editorialize about the need for more gun control.
