Hawaii Five Oh No!


CBS has announced that they've finally cleared all the legal hurdles and are moving forward with plans to revive Hawaii Five-O.

Will it be worthwhile? Are remade television series (or feature films, for that matter) ever very exciting? I'm dubious. If you're hungering for the originals, CBS has posted quite a few full-length episodes from the show's first 2 seasons.

Below is a pretty fascinating clip, showing the retooled open from a 1990s attempt to get the show back on the air. Believe it or not, Garey Busey was to star in the Steve McGarrett role.

Russell Wong...perhaps most famous as the bad guy in "Romeo Must Die."
