“Hala i ke ala o’i’ole mai” – Still reeling from the murder of one of their ohana, Steve and Catherine (Michelle Borth), along with Danny, Junior and some old friends, Harry Langford (Chris Vance) and Wade Gutches (David Keith), hunt down the killer. Also, Tani and Grover investigate when a bag of human bones, discovered inside an abandoned storage locker goes missing, on HAWAII FIVE-0, Friday, Jan. 4 (9:00-10:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network.

I’m really looking forward to this episode. Excited to see Catherine again. And Harry. 🙂

The review for last week’s episode will be up in a couple of days. As you know, Cokie and I were on vacation and didn’t really have time to review. But, of course, we have watched it, and a double review will be up soon.

More pictures will be up as soon as they become available.

Let’s pic(k) Steve!

Episode 9.09

I think this was a lame episode. The handling of the whole Adam/Tani story was embarrassing. Does Steve know? Does he not know? What the heck? If I hadn’t already I would have to write something about this stupidity. And am I the only one flinching every time I see Adam wearing a weapon and a badge? This is so ridiculous.

But I love Jerry, always have. He has become a valuable member of 5-0.

And Linty Williams’ superpower is indeed dannoying people to death. But he is also The Invisible. Not that I’m complaining. So no, Mini D, your Dad is no superhero at all.

I wish we had the real deal at the chopper at the end and not the comic version of Steve. Because that is exactly something he would have done. Boom! Poof! Bang! Smack!

Let’s have a look at Hawaii’s human, vulnerable, trained, unselfish, altruistic BatMan.

SEAL sign’s up in the sky!



Never had a bad hairy chest day.

9.07 Review


9.07 – Pua a’e la ka uwahi o ka moe

McGarrett investigates a cold case from the 1940s, one that his grandfather and the famous Honolulu detective Chang Apana worked on, and he tries to deduce how the case could have been solved. Also, McGarrett and Danny get ready for the opening of their restaurant, on the milestone 200th episode of HAWAII FIVE-0, Friday, Nov. 9 (9:00-10:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network. The FIVE-0 cast appears as characters from the 1940s.

CBS translated Pua a’e la ka uwahi o ka moe to The Smoke Seen in the Dream Now Rises

First of all, let me say that 200 episodes is a great achievement. Not that many shows get to that number.

No matter what one thinks of Hawaii Five-0, the show has earned respect for running such a long time. And to be honest, they delivered some of the best episodes on TV. Yes, they also delivered some of the worst, but that is to be expected with such a number of shows. Not every single one can be great art. And by the way, a TV show very seldom is great art.

This show’s goal has never been to be an Emmy-worthy show; its goal clearly is and always was to simply entertain. And I think they did a great job doing just that.

That said, let’s take a look at the 200th episode.
