Book ’ em in, Danno
THERE aren’t too many shows more action-packed and more hyped than the reincarnation of the 1960s TV series Hawaii 5-0.
Even though season one of the newly branded franchise was a blast in more ways than one, the show failed to gain traction with Australian audiences in a difficult Sunday night slot.
Shunting repeats from pillar to post in program guides didn’t help, but TDT is fast-tracking season two of Hawaii 5-0 regardless.
A Wednesday placement is seen as the most likely successful timeslot this time around.
We last saw the divine Steve McGarrett ( Alex O’Loughlin, below left) in prison for the murder of the Governor. Of course it’s a set-up, but he’s having a hard time convincing anyone of that.
Cue sidekick Danno ( Scott Caan, below right) calling on an old friend to try to clear McGarrett’s name.
