'Hawaii 5-0' plans red carpet Waikiki premiere

By Mike Gordon

LAST UPDATED: 10:44 a.m. HST, Jul 02, 2014

For the fifth year in a row, CBS will premiere the new season of "Hawaii Five-0" at its popular Sunset on the Beach red carpet party on Waikiki Beach, the network announced Wednesday. 

CBS will screen the season premiere on Sept. 13, which is nearly two weeks before the network debut on Sept. 26.  

The event, which draws thousands of fans from around the world, has become a fall "Five-0" tradition. The network, and especially the show's executive producer, Peter Lenkov, consider it a way to thank fans. 

"It allows me the privilege of sharing our premiere episode with our extended family on the most beautiful beach in the world," Lenkov said. "So if you ask if I am excited -- I am. More than words can describe. Mahalo." 

The event includes regular cast members and guest stars who arrive, usually after a full day of shooting, dressed in tuxedos and gowns and walk a red carpet along the shore. 

This season will see a significant milestone in the rebooted version of "Five-0": Its 100th episode.

"In an era when everyone's attention is divided by a plethora of media choices, it's humbling to have a show that's about to celebrate its 100th episode," Lenkov said. "And we'll be shooting that episode during Sunset On The Beach, which has turned out to be the highlight of every season."

In more ways than 5-0. I seen him in Combat! as a technical sergeant who crossed with the combat sergeant Vic Morrow. Also in The Invaders as Vikor, one in which Alfred Ryder starred. Those were my favorite shows: Combat!, Voyage to the Bottom of The Sea, The Invaders, The Fugitive, The FBI, Hawaii Five-0, All in the Family, Star Trek, The Odd Couple, McHale's Navy, That Girl, It Takes a Thief, Charlie's Angels, The Rookies, and lastly and not the least, Three's Company, god bless John Ritter!! In fact too much TV that I got smashed when I took my SAT verbal lol.

I was secretly recording our chat though and I will get it up on You Tube. My voice can be recognized however Taylor's voice was soft. He was there with his two kids and yes he WAS chomping down on a meal fit for a King. Man those big bumbuchas can EAT !!!! I also asked him if he was related to Aofaga Wily of The Kahuku Red a Raiders.

I think for those of us who will be alive 40 years from now, those of you will appreciate this show because it shows the sights and sounds of Hawaii. I am old enough to live through the time that the original show filmed, from 1968 to 1980, and I can recall how Hawaii and especially Honolulu looked like, back in the day. I don't know if this new version of 5-O will last long enough to include footage of TheTrain, however it would be of interest to get on film, TheTrain running.

This show is nothing but a "slapstick comedy" that tries to be slick with its superficial story plots and incredulous gun fights etc....I find it hard to believe that this series will go any further than this season....the writing and plots are simply discombobulated going off in every which way lost in the sunset of stupidity......the original "5-0" was really local, basics, and featured many local character actors/actressed which gave it a feeling of ohana and genuine authenticity.

Yes the original show was much better because McGarrett was THE Man, the supreme boss. Our new McGarrett has tattoos, speaks softly and has other characteristics that would make Jack Lord turn in his coffin.

The following names, some of whom are with Jack Lord, brings back memories: Nephi Hannemann (yes, Mufi's brother), Danny Kaleikini, Christopher Walken, Vic Tayback, Carol Lynley, Vic Morrow, John Ritter, Marion Ross (yes of Happy Days), Bob Sevey, Bob Jones, Joe Moore, and many more, who've guest starred on the original version, and for which I've watched each episode at least twice, as I am a genuine Original Hawaii Five-O fan, to have and to hold, these Magnificent Hawaiian Islands.
