Hawaii Five-O originally ran from 1968 to 1980. There is no denying that the show was a classic piece of television greatness. In 2010, a reboot of the show was first aired and it continued on for 10 seasons, having just finished up its last season in April of 2020. The original show and the reboots were both critically acclaimed and experienced high ratings and viewership.
Whether you are watching the original show or the reboot, the storylines are essentially the same. Steve McGarrett is a Reserve Naval officer that goes to Hawaii to try to find his father’s killer and avenge his untimely and violent death. The governor of Hawaii gives him the honor of forming his own task force and he accepts the offer.
With the help of his ever-growing team and his partner Danny Williams, Steve takes on the bad guys, terrorists, and mob bosses on a weekly basis. The shows are packed full of action and pretty scenery. The backdrop of Hawaii turns a relatively formulaic cop show into a unique affair full of satisfying eye candy.
Both shows are undeniably great in their own regard and held to their own merit. Facts Verse is going to take a look at the top 10 ways that we believe the reboot outshined the original.
