Secondly, despite the tile of this blog post, it isn't about aging hookers with double chins. Really, it's not.
|The original Chin Ho|
Today while having lunch I watched Hawaii Five-0 and, not for the first time, was struck by how much I enjoy the remake of this popular show from the 1960s and 1970s. That's not usually the case. Usually, I deplore remakes of iconic shows and films. But I like the modern Hawaii Five-0 as much as I did the original when I was young.
I really enjoy the modern cast and how they have added a female cop, the tough and lovely Kono played by Grace Park. And I've enjoyed how they've brought in notable guest stars. I've especially enjoyed Carol Burnett as McGarrett's aunt, Ed Asner as August March, and most recently Melanie Griffith who played Danno's mother fresh from a split with her husband.
|The new Chin Ho|
It's raining right now here in Los Angeles and it's rather gray and dreary out. I still have chores to do and a book to finish, but for a brief moment today I was transported to the warm and sunny shores of the islands and got to soak in some Hawaii 5-0 beefcake.
That said, I really do have to get moving on my manuscript. I don't think my editor is going to buy mooning over Chin Ho as an excuse if it isn't done on time. Or will she????
