The first of three locally filmed TV shows went down the
tubes yesterday. Hawaii, the one that I thought had
the best understanding of the place its title names, fell, I
think, to two problems.
The first is being against ABC’s
phenomenal show Lost (also filmed here). The second
was story lines that were just not very believable nor
interesting. That’s not to say the acting (and the actors)
were not good. They were. But the material they were given to
work with just didn’t cut it.
Aloha o’e to Hawaii, a noble effort that fell
short of the mark.
