9.20 Ke ala o ka pu
First of all, let me thank you for still sticking around. I know we haven’t been the most productive lately. But it’s not due to lack of interest, it’s just because of too little time. There is a lot going on in our lives, and as you all know, real life comes first.
So, here is another review, but it, again, lacks pictures. But LeiCa already provided us with great screenshots. And you can always head over to IntenseStudy; they did a great job with Steve in this episode.
Without further ado, here is our little review for 9.20. Is it twenty episodes already? Unbelievable.
“O ke kumu, o ka māna, ho‘opuka ‘ia” – While Adam investigates the murder of an undercover FBI agent about to wed the daughter of a Yakuza leader, Noelani is held hostage and forced, along with her mentor Dr. Chu (Page Leong), to operate at gunpoint on a criminal, on HAWAII FIVE-0, Friday, April 26 (9:00-10:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network.
(“O ke kumu, o ka māna, ho‘opuka ‘ia” is Hawaiian for “The Teacher, the Pupil – Let it come forth”)
OK, again, what is Adam’s qualification to be a Special Task Force member? None needed? Got it. Now he is investigating a murder? OK, I give up on any kind of logic.
“He kama na ka pueo” – Five-0 investigates the murder of a man whose body may hold the key to a 20-year-old case involving a kidnapped girl whose father never stopped looking for her, on HAWAII FIVE-0, Friday, April 12 (9:00-10:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network.
(“He kama na ka pueo” is Hawaiian for “Offspring of an Owl”)
“Ke ala o ka pū” – Five-0 must locate a teen girl who purchased a gun from a junkie, and discover that the firearm, over the course of decades, has affected all of their lives, on HAWAII FIVE-0, Friday, April 5 (9:00-10:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network.
(“Ke ala o ka pū” is Hawaiian for “Way of the Gun”)
I am looking forward to this episode. I am a fan of flashback scenes, so let’s hope this will be good.
As soon as pictures become available, we will post them here.
“Pupuhi ka he’e o kai uli” – Five-0 investigate the murder of a window washer and find that the victim is actually a renowned street artist who may have a politically motivated bounty on his head. Also, Grover and Adam look into the murder of a gambler, and Junior helps his father when they are reminded of his sister’s death, on HAWAII FIVE-0, Friday, March 15 (9:00-10:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network.
(“Pupuhi ka he’e o kai uli” is Hawaiian for “The octopus of the deep spews its ink.”)
OK, guys, let’s have a discussion about how accurate a TV show has to be. Let’s not just talk about Five-0, I only use it as a stand-in. Talk about any show you like.
What started this discussion was the wrong naming of two buildings frequently used on the show. Five-0 Headquarters is not located at the Palace, as they have more than once said. But on the other hand no police force, special or not, is located in the building they use as HQ. And even worse 😉 there is no such thing as a Governor’s Task Force. So, does have the show an obligation to use the right names for their fictional HQ? And if they don’t do that, does it bother you?
9.15 – Ho‘opio ‘ia e ka noho ali‘i a ka ua
As a dangerous hurricane hits Oahu, Five-0 is tasked with protecting El Diablo (Raoul Trujillo), a captured serial killer who is being hunted by an assassin. Also, Tani’s civilian safety check during the storm turns deadly and Rachel and Charlie evacuate to Danny’s house, where the ex-spouses reminisce, on HAWAII FIVE-0, Friday, Feb. 15 (9:00-10:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network.
CBS translated Ho‘opio ‘ia e ka noho ali‘i a ka ua to Made prisoner by the reign of the rain
