Watch Hawaii Five-0

A modern take on an old classic, CBS' re-imagining of Hawaii Five-0 is more than just a remake. Instead of simply banking on the brand and churning out yet another prime time police procedural, they took the heart of a beloved '70s show and gave it a sleek, pulse-pounding makeover set in one of the most gorgeous locations in the world.

Like the original, Hawaii Five-0 ("H50" to fans) follows a small, specialized task force dedicated to protecting the picturesque beaches of Hawaii. However, it breaks from its predecessor when it comes time to battle the bad guys. H50 has to deal with modern crime and everything it represents, including bombs, terrorist plots, government interference and even the occasional tsunami. It's the tropics, after all!

H50 also faces another threat - one from within. As a team made up of strong, hot-headed personalities, they fight each other as often as they fight their enemies.

Team leader Steve McGarrett (Alex O'Loughlin) is passionate but reckless, often utilizing his background as a Navy SEAL to justify his off-the-books police work. He's the type who prefers grenades to Miranda rights, much to the frustration of his partner, buttoned-up detective Danny Williams (Scott Caan). Cousins Chin Ho Kelly (Daniel Dae Kim) and Kono Kalakaua (Grace Park) round out the team, playing a wrongly-accused police veteran and an eager rookie, respectively.

If these names sound familiar, it's because you've seen them all before. Scott Caan was a regular in the Ocean's Elven series before he ever stepped foot in Hawaii, and Alex O'Loughlin has been in everything from the vampiric Moonlight to the short-lived hospital drama Three Rivers. Grace Park, of course, is well-known to sci-fi fans for her role in Battlestar Galactica, and anyone who ever shook their fists at Lost will recognize the ruggedly handsome features of Daniel Dae Kim. (Lost fans will also appreciate the casting of Terry O'Quinn in season two!)Hawaii Five-0 premiered in 2010 to modest success, and the numbers held up long enough to bring it back for a second season. A third has been commissioned and will premiere in fall 2012.

Now, just try to keep the theme song out of your head.
