The new Hawaii Five-0

I don't watch much television. At home, the honour belongs to my aunt. She can sit (and sleep) in front of the set for hours in the afternoons and evenings after all the food's been cooked. But come this November, I'm sure to compete with her for the remote control.

Well, not all the time, anyway. She can go back to watching her shows when I'm done with watching Hawaii Five-O. Yes, that's right, the original Hawaii Five-O with Jack Lord as the original Steve McGarrett and James MacArthur as the original Danny Williams.  Classic stuff.

AXN (Astro Channel 701) will be screening the original remastered version of Hawaii Five-O on weekdays at 6.15pm from 1 Nov (repeat at 12.55pm from 2 Nov). Time to relive the past. 

Hawaii Five-O was one of my favourite television shows then. And it looks set to be one of my favourite television shows again. Starting on 14 Nov, I'll be sitting down to watch the NEW 2010 remake of Hawaii Five-0

Yessirree Bob, 30 years after the original series ended, the super-duper detective series has been resurrected with a new cast. This time, it'll be Alex O'Loughlin as the new Steve McGarrett and Scott Caan (son of James "Rollerball" Caan) as the new Danny Williams. Plus, Daniel Dae Kim as the new Chin Ho Kelly and Grace Park as the new Kono Kalakaua. That's a refreshing change, because the original Kono had always been played by a male actor. But I can't imagine a male actor in a bikini, though.

P.S. The 2010 version of Hawaii Five-0 premiered in the United States on 20 Sep but we are only getting to see it on 14 Nov.
