And lord know, CBS needs another crime procedural to go along with:

Cold Case
Criminal Minds
CSI: Las Vegas
CSI: New York
CSI:Miami
Medium
NCIS
NCIS: Los Angeles
Numbers
The Mentalist

Yeah, Dan-O. They need "Hawaii Five-O" and maybe they could get really adventurous, reach back another ten years and reprise "77 Sunset Strip".:sure:

But hey, who wouldn't want to do a show in Hawaii?

If it does well in the ratings, we can expect to see either "Oahu Five-O" or "Hawaii Six-O" within a season or two...

Or would it be "Hawaii Five-P?"

Lord knows those in Hollywood these days have no have no idea to create something for themselves.

There is no such thing as unadulterated original creativity; there never was, at least not in the past few centuries. People seem to consider the first time they personally know of where a theme was presented to be the objective point of originality; that's ridiculous. Everything presented is a derivation of themes that have been presented before.

So basically producers have a choice, either pay homage to the themes they're building upon, and be condemned for that, or be accused of stealing ideas. Great choice. The expectation that everything presented is going to something wholly new and not resemble anything that has ever been before is unreasonable.

The name of the program will capture the attention and get people to watch the first episode, which is all the name of the show is supposed to do. The reuse of the theme of detectives in Hawaii will provide some viewers a comfortable touchstone, and won't mean anything to others, but bases will be covered.

Heck, Hawaii is better than North Dakota.

For a TV crime procedural series that would be at least different. They could shoot it around Winnipeg to keep the costs down.:rolleyes:

I think the last creative thing CBS had was Jericho and they killed it twice. I think that is also the last thing I watched on CBS.

It got cancelled? Oh Lord, what have they done to Jack?

They could even call it "Hawaii" (2004). ;)

I forgot about that one. From Wikipedia: "Originally titled Pearl City, this police drama was produced with the series Hawaii Five-O in mind...."
