GENETIC BREAKTHROUGH ON HAWAII FIVE O!

The new episode of Hawaii Five O we watched tonight is titled “Ho’oilina.”

As the story goes, it is the fourth anniversary of his father’s death. While Steve McGarrett is visiting his father’s grave, he meets a woman who helps him reopen the last unsolved case his father worked before his death.

The old Hawaii Five O wasn’t a great show, but guys really liked it. The new one is nominally better acted, but it could hardly be called “realistic.” Better than its predecessor. Pretty to watch. It is, after all, Hawaii. Garry enjoys it and I don’t mind.

This week, though, it totally blew me away because the woman Steve McGarret meets at his father’s grave is a tall, blond assistant district attorney. In the flashback memory of her father’s death, the same woman is a tan Hawaiian — perhaps Chinese? — girl.

That’s so amazing. Who knew DNA could produce such an extraordinary transformation? I mean … wow. Garry says it’s bad casting. I call it a miracle.

  1. Shoot, on the remake of Battlestar Galactica one of the cast changed sexes, ie. Starbuck. On Deep Space 9 one of the cast, Dax, was the host of an alien being. It changed gender like we do underwear. Well, maybe a little less frequently than that. 🙂

  2. It annoys heck out of me when they do that. I haven’t watched either the old show though I remember it or the new one although my husband has. Must be a guy thing. The main thing I liked about it was the theme tune.

    • I hate debates about things so simple as HAWAII 5-0. It’s part of our DNA. From Jack Lord’s plastic hair, plastic acting and starched suit to the lucious women (especially Grace Park) of the new 5-0, It’s required viewing. Besides, Young Steve and young Danno have a man thing going showing the producers are tuned into the present. We’ll book all dissenters! Aloha!
