CBS has released a trailer giving audiences a look at their latest cop show, Hawaii Five-O. The reboot of the 70’s hit focuses on the members of a special forces team investigating crimes in the 50th state.
Despite the dubious premise (Is there really that much crime in Honolulu?) the show has managed to assemble a surprisingly strong cast. Lost’s Daniel Dae Kim and the Ocean series’s Scott Caan both play detectives, making up for a bland-looking Alex O’Loughlin. Grace Park, whose acting abilities improved phenomenally over the course of her last series, Battlestar Galactica, plays token chick and obligatory surfer Kona Kalakaua. Buffy The Vampire Slayer’s James Marsters makes a brief appearance in the trailer, but will be filling the role of series big bad Victor Hesse.
While it’s doubtful that this show will be the next Lost, it certainly looks like a solid enough police procedural, with the added bonus of a beautiful setting (with one of the lowest violent crime rates in the nation) and a very catchy theme song.
