Press Release 6.09

“Hana Keaka” – Five-0 goes back to school when a college professor is killed and Danny goes undercover as his replacement, on HAWAII FIVE-0, Friday, Nov. 10 (9:00-10:00 PM, ET/PT), on the CBS Television Network.

(*”Hana Keaka” is Hawaiian for “Charade”)



I have said it before, but seriously, a member of Five-0 goes undercover? That is ridiculous. They were in the public eye way too often. Everybody knows their faces. Their undercover days should be over… long over.

Oh, right, I forgot, this time it’s the Clark Kent effect. Silly me. 😉

  1. Who’s the guy with the glasses in the first picture? He looks kind of familiar but I don’t recognize him at all. Oh, and looks like the oh-so-smart and delightful nephew is back…

    • This might actually be an interesting episode, but I find it highly amusing that they think any of Five-0 could go undercover. That is just stupid, in my eyes.

      I think the nephew trumps Pua and Jerry in the annoying department. Ugh.

    • Apparently the guiding principle of Show is to “Add as a recurring cast member at least one addle-brained quirky dude each season; also subtract at least one cool chick from from the cast each half season. Caveat: Given the apparent shortage of cool chicks in Hawaii and Hollywood, you might have to temporarily add a chick before you can then subtract her. This is what makes 5-0 special. Stick to this formula at all costs!”

  2. I’ve never understood how any member of such a high profile unit could ever go under cover. But, then again, no woman ever notices Steve either. I’m thinking cloaking device ? Or maybe the glasses are the kind that make Clark Kent go from a mild mannered reporter to Superman and no one recognizes him? Must be something really special to pull that off.


  3. I can’t help wondering what subject Danny is qualified to teach. They most likely think that college kids don’t watch the news so they are safe. And the last time Steve went to a college the girls in the sorority house thought he was someone’s dad. Those girls are plainly brain dead and make me wonder about the future women of the world.
    And I find it curious that this is the second press release in a row with no mention of McG’s supposed girlfriend after the first date. Makes me wonder how serious this can be if she vanishes after one date. Think they will mention her at all?


    • What happened to ? Mindy? the medical examiner? Did she go the way of Ellie? This show uses women like spackle to fix any little hole in the script. Guess we can add Lynn to the Sorority of Used and Discarded,
