CBS’ Hawaii Five-0 reboot held its premiere on Waikiki Beach this week as part of the island’s longrunning “Sunset on the Beach” public screening series. That’s also where ABC’s Lost screened its first, second, third, and sixth (and final) season premieres. The two series already share a filming location, and a co-star, Daniel Dae Kim. Might Hawaii Five-0 also mirror Lost’s solid run? Problem is, the “Sunset on the Beach” public screenings are not a universal good luck charm. The day after ABC showed the Lost pilot there in 2004, NBC premiered its own Hawaii series on Waikiki Beach. It lasted only 7 episodes.
