CBS’s high-octane rebirth of "Hawaii 5-0" is looking pretty okay. The action looks far superior to anything on "CSI," the humor doesn’t seem nearly as forced (or delivered via a quirky goth) as on "NCIS," and the camera isn’t sent on an unnecessary voyage through the bloodstream at all from what I can tell. I could do without Scott Caan’s channeling of Michael Rapaport though, but beggars can’t be choosers.
Could this spell the end of the procedural? We won’t know for sure until a year or two from now, when CBS decides whether they will greenlight "Hawaii 5-0: Arizona" or not.
