  1. I got to see the premier in Waikiki last week. The show was pretty good. Much better than expected. The scenic photography of Hawaii is amazing. Hawaii is the star of the show for sure.

    As a Honolulu resident I had to laugh a bit at all the action though. Honolulu is consistently ranked as one of the safest big cities in the entire country. Last year Honolulu was ranked as the #1 safest big city in the in the US. I hope nobody takes the show too seriously. 😉
