| Shows Promise but...
Let's start with arguably the best and most recognized TV score of all time. If the producers want to use the original theme song, then why shorten it? It reminded me of the truncated TV tunes of re-runs in syndication.

Now for the pilot episode. I thought it odd that Hawaii 5-0 would open with a scene in South Korea. It's like stumbling out of bed in the morning not exactly sure what you're going to do that day.

There are also seemed to be to much gun play and not enough acting. The dialog and some of the background setup (Danno's family situation, for example) was a bit too cliché. Some of the personal background could be better developed over time rather than cramming it into one episode while chasing the bad guys.

The overall storyline for the pilot was excellent, though. It gave background to 5-0's beginnings and it maintained a certain consistency and plausibility with TOS while adding the dimension of McGarrett and his father.

Some of the dialog resulted in an approving chuckle from me.

The episode began to gel about 2/3 in and by the end of the show, I felt comfortable with the main characters and looked forward to the next chapter.

Trivia

The character of Wo Fat, the principal archvillain of both Hawaii Five-O (1968) (as portrayed by Khigh Dhiegh) and this show (as portrayed by Mark Dacascos), appeared just eleven times (in thirteen episodes, as some were two-parters) in Hawaii Five-O (1968), over the course of twelve years and two hundred seventy-nine episodes, including the pilot, and the series finale, titled "Woe to Wo Fat". On this show, Wo Fat was also introduced in the pilot, but has already appeared in nine episodes, up to, and including the third season premiere.

Goofs

The HPD police cruisers used throughout the series are the civilian-spec Chevrolet Impala sedans (2006 - 2013 including the 2014-16 Impala Limited) seen with the HPD livery. The Impala squads seen throughout the series have the 5-spoke alloy wheels - which is not available with the 9C1 police package option (2006 - present Impalas come with 16 inch steel wheels with bolt-on center caps or the full-wheel hubcaps seen on the civilian 2000-05 base Impala - 2012-16 models came with 17 inch steel wheels). Commencing in Season 7 this also applies to the civilian-spec 2007-14 Chevrolet Tahoe and 2011-17 Caprice PPV (while the newer models are not sold to the general public the 2011 model or those with over 100,000 miles are being are being seen during Season 7).
