Also, the animation begins with rowers on an outrigger, which is a call back to the original series. Their end credits featured the Five-0 theme song over outrigger footage.
In the dialogue, Danny reminisces about going to see Madame Marie on the Asbury Park Boardwalk in New Jersey. She was a real psychic who is referenced by name in the Bruce Springsteen song 4th of July, Asbury Park (Sandy). Her son, Stephen, still runs their family's fortune telling business on the New Jersey boardwalk today.
