    Anyone watch Hawaii Five-O?

    Last week they made mention several times of the "bosozoku".

    They said they were the younger members of the Yakuza gangs, mostly killers/drug dealers. :P

    But they all rode brand new, bone stock, crotch rocket type motorcycles, with full stock mufflers.
    Elvis hair and torn denim on a shiny new sport bike?
    It was like they needed the name of a lower level gang that could be broken for info, without any research into what they might actually look like or ride.
    But it's miles better than almost everything else on now, so don't look too hard for flubs.

    I don't.

    Except to say that the two lead "Hawaiian" characters are played by Koreans. :mrgreen:

    We get it here prolly next month. i used to love watching the original, so am looking forward to it. I don't expect a deep and thought provoking show, so figure i won't be disappointed

    You will love it. The main actor looks for almost any excuse to take his shirt off. :P

    If they remade Five-O... I hope the guy who does McGarrett's role/job at least, drives a black Mercury Grand Marquis/Marauder.

    The big black Merc, was what was memorable to me, about that show.

    1968 Mercury Park Lane(used in the earlier episodes)


    1973-78 Mercury Marquis Brougham(used in the later episodes)

    Being a resident of Hawaii, I hate the show. Dog the Bounty Hunter is much more palatable than Hawaii Five-O.

    He drives a new Camaro, as Chevrolet is a main sponsor of the show.

    But as a nod to the original, his dad drove the big black Mercury in question. And it's now in his garage undergoing a very slow restoration. There have been a few running gags about him looking for parts for it. :mrgreen:
