To no surprise, CBS picked up the new Hawaii Five-0 series. The TV show will have a prominent spot on the Fall 2010 schedule, airing on Monday nights at 10pm. This new series is not a continuation of the original but a remake. It stars Alex O’Loughlin, Scott Caan, Daniel Dae Kim, Grace Park, Jean Smart, and Taryn Manning.
CBS has released some clips of the new Hawaii Five-0, including the opening theme and credits. Fans of the original series may be happy to know that they’ve retained the theme though it has been tweaked a bit.
Now, compare it to the original theme and to the opening of the unaired pilot for a new series from 1996. The latter stars Gary Busey and was conceived as a continuation of the original. Several actors from the Jack Lord series reprise their roles. It was not well-received by CBS and did not become a series.
What do you think? Do you like the new version or do you prefer one of the earlier incarnations?
