Finally, the review for one of the best episodes of the show. Yeah, yeah, I know, we normally don’t give the verdict up front. But come on, were there any doubts about the verdict? I don’t think so.

I am really sorry it took us this long to get this thing out to you, all my fault. I simply didn’t have the time, and more importantly, I was kinda overwhelmed by the episode. I found it extremely difficult to express my thoughts for it.

So, I hope you are still kinda interested in a review. If not, well, just skip it. 😊 …Sam

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.
