Hallandale Beach Blog -A common sense public policy overview offering a critical perspective on the current events, politics, govt., public policy, sports scene and pop culture of the U.S., South Florida and Europe, especially the UK and Sweden. In particular, Broward & Miami-Dade County, and the cities of Hallandale Beach, Hollywood & Aventura. Trust me when I tell you, this part of Florida is NOT the Land of Lincoln.

A nation's prayer is answered -'Hawaii Five-o' returns!; TV Barn's Aaron Barnhart: The awesomest ‘Hawaii Five-o′ marching band video ever



Well, after months of waiting, and with CSI Miami shuffled off to Sunday night at 10 p.m..
Hawaii Five-o returns to network TV tonight, with bells and whistles and a full-court media PR schmooze-fest orchestrated by CBS-TV, with gleeful assistance from hundreds of websites and blogs that have been chronicling the return for months.

For awhile, I thought I'd do that, too, but why be the fifth-wheel when the first four are already working, so I've been sitting on this for months.
But first, to appreciate how much people have longed for a QUALITY re-make of this show, it's important to see what came before.

From the banal to the brilliant: Surfside 6 to Hawaii Five-o in the blink of an eye.

The awesomest ‘Hawaii Five-0′ marching band video eve

Remember when NBC, the fourth-most-watched network on TV (unless USA is having a good night), told you they were remaking “Bionic Woman” and “Knight Rider” and then you tuned in and realized that these were just signs that NBC had hung on entirely different shows that happened to have a cyborgian female and a cyborgian internal-combustion vehicle in them?, CBS is taking a different tack with its remake of 1970s police staple “Hawaii Five-0.”

True, it’s been turned into a buddy action show rather a procedural starring Jack Lord and his hair. But in many ways, as you’ll see tonight, there are attempts to honor viewers’ memories of the show — which makes sense, since at least some of “Five-0′s” run was seen by millions of boys who are now men in Nielsen’s 25-to-54-year-old demo.

For ‘Hawaii Five-0,’ a Music-Filled Push From CBS

By Stuart Elliott

There have been police dramas on television called “Hawaii,” “Hawaiian Eye” and “Hawaiian Heat,” but the biggest gangbuster was “Hawaii Five-O,” which appeared on CBS from 1968 to 1980. Lush scenery in living color, a catchy theme song and a memorable catchphrase, “Book ’em, Danno,” all contributed to a successful run in prime time.

Because, as Fred Allen once said, imitation is the sincerest form of television, it is not surprising that CBS is remaking the series; the new version will be broadcast at 10 p.m. (Eastern and Pacific) on Mondays, starting on Sept. 20. The revived “Hawaii Five-0”— with a zero in place of the “O,” perhaps to signal it is version 2.0 — is one of five new series that CBS plans for the 2010-11 season.

What a night we had! #HollywoodFL based photographer/entrepreneur Esther Chuang with a very elated Hollywood Mayor-elect Josh Levy at his Victory Party, held at Leo Anato's Atelier3/AT3 on Harrison Street & S. 19th Avenue, Hollywood. AT3's great environment and the amazing variety of food prepared by chef Kevin Dreifuss, former owner/chef of ENDS MEAT restaurant, was SUPERB! November 2016
