Hawaii Five-O is an action-packed crime show.

 Hawaii Five-O is a reboot of the 1968 show of the same name and first aired in 2010. In this series, new characters are introduced to continue keeping Honolulu safe from crime. After his father’s death, Commander Steve McGarrett (Alex O’Loughlin) leads a special crime task force and recruits key assets to his team like Detective Danny Williams (Scott Caan), Lieutenant Chin Ho Kelly (Daniel Dae Kim), and Officer Kono Kalakaua (Grace Park), and Captain Lou Grover (Chi Mcbride) to ensure safety in the Aloha State. Several plot twists and new villains arise within the show leaving viewers excited for more.

When I was first introduced to Hawaii Five-O, I had doubts because I wasn’t interested in criminal justice. This crime show is not “cheesy” like several other cop shows that depict the “true lives” of the police force. Viewers will actually gain knowledge about how crimes are truly solved. Hawaii Five-O uses real-life procedures to solve real-life crimes that occur around the police department, making it a worthy and factual show to watch. Situations, where bombs are defused, are just one of the many real-life procedures used on Hawaii Five-O.

Hawaii Five-O has an interesting storyline that intertwines with life at work and each character’s personal life. With several things happening at once, it may be challenging to figure out what is going on as the show references key events from the previous season. New viewers will enjoy the storyline because it has several twists and turns and will keep you guessing on what exactly is going to happen next, making it a great show to binge on.

Although two of the main characters are not returning to Season 8, Hawaii Five-O has not been underperforming.  According to staradvertiser.com, “Season of ‘Hawaii Five-O’ is off to an exciting start.” This setback shouldn’t stop viewers from watching the show because the story is just getting better and better because new plot twists have been introduced.

You can watch the amazing show on CBS or Netflix. If you’re in need of a show that is filled with lots of action, Hawaii Five-O is the perfect show for you. Even if you’re not into crime solver shows, Hawaii Five-O will change your opinion because it’s not only focused on police work but the everyday hardships of a few brave individuals. For these reasons, Hawaii Five-O is a great show that new viewers should get interested in.
