Over the past several years I have become more and more interested in television, due to the fact that more shows are beginning to deal with the themes that I find intriguing. Recently I have discovered a new favorite (not to replace my old favorite, simply another which is newer) in the show Hawaii Five-O. Now I must admit that I have not had the opportunity to view any of the old seasons. The new incarnation is amazing.
The show centers around Steve McGarrett, ex-naval intelligence, who returns home to Hawaii following his father's murder. With Dan, Chin and Kono, they do whatever it takes to chase down criminals. Not a far cry from many other shows on television, and yet this one charges my soul with the desire to make the most of myself. The difference is that these four characters are so intense and passionate about making sure that justice occurs and that wrongs are righted. They care about the families of the people who have been wronged. It is a fantastic showing of what can be done when people use their full abilities and resources for the good of everyone.
