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.
