"Book 'em, Danno." Of course, they said the line, as they should. And the theme music will always rock.

Like Knight Rider a couple of years ago, Hawaii Five-0 has sentimental value as something I watched as a kid. I thought it was a pretty good modernizing of the old show.

Action-wise, it was solid, directed by Len Wiseman (Live Free or Die Hard, Underworld). Writing-wise, it felt a little slight, but it was efficient and set up the characters and the (currently nameless) four person state police task force ex-soldier Steve McGarrett heads up. I liked the rapport between Alex O'Loughlin's MacGarrett and Scott Caan's Danny and the way they busted each other's balls. Plus James Marsters is the (series'?) Big Bad.

It was weird but kind of awesome that Hawaii Five-0 is about two vampires from Moonlight and Buffy/Angel in a blood vendetta with each other, which also stars a Wolfram and Hart attorney and a former Cylon. But clearly whoever cast H50 loves the same shows I do.

Empire Records was NOT all. I really want to see the Lohan movie, now that we know that she is just a latter-day Marilyn Monroe (okay, maybe not).
