After 30 years, I am finally able to watch my favourite TV show again, Hawaii Five-O. Unfortunately, all the actors in the old series have since passed on - Jack Lord, Kam Fong and the latest, James MacArthur. The famous line, "Book him Danno!", will always be remembered by the fans, especially when it comes from Steve McGarrett.
Currently, AXN [Astro] is having a re-run of the old series on weekdays, and from November 14, a re-make of the series will take over, apparently with new cast.

The only recognisable actor in the new series is Daniel Dae Kim who last played the role of "Jin-Soon Kwon" in the TV series "Lost". He has also been seen in CSI: Crime Scene Investigation as a treasury agent as well as episodes of Angel, 24, Star Trek: Voyager, Star Trek: Enterprise, Crusade, Charmed, The Shield, Seinfeld, NYPD Blue, ER, and The Andromeda Strain. His film credits include a small part in Spider-Man 2 as a scientist working in Doctor Octavius' laboratory.
