Hawaii Five-0 Getting Remade For TV on CBS

Hawaii Five-0 Returning to TV

Book 'em, Dano! Hawaii Five-0 is coming back to CBS. The network is currently at work developing a 2.0 version of the classic cop series, and the writers behind it include two of the guys from Fringe, Alex Kurtzman, and Roberto Orci.

I feel pretty confident about the cult favorite's return given that it's in such capable hands, but with yesterday's news that Southland got canceled, can any police drama — even one with established fans — survive against TV titans CSI and Law & Order? Here's hoping Hawaii Five-O may just stand a chance. I'm sure a few die-hard fans of the '70s original will be a bit unhappy about the new, undoubtedly slicked-up version, but as long as they leave the theme song alone, I'll be happy.

How do you feel about a remake? Do you think it can last up against the other police series?

They need to stop remaking classic shows like these. The new versions never do the classic any justice. Some things just need to be left alone. I say no to this one.

sure, why not? I loved Hawaii 5-0 as a kid, and I'm curious to see how a modern version would look. and Jack Lord as McGarrett was like the original Chuck Bass, what with the sweet neck scarfs and blazers...
