    I enjoyed this episode, cool to see Peter Weller pretty much typecast with the robotics! (RoboCop) Danno was really hilarious this week, loved his conversation with the gun shop owner! - A character they should have in the show a little more often.

  • A Clear Attack On The US Constitution

    1.0
    The "Hookman" episode was nothing more that an attack on the Second Amendment of the Constitution. When Scott Caan entered the gun store a berated the innocent owner he (CBS) showed their complete disregard for our civil rights. CBS should be ashamed of themselves. My family and I will no longer watch any CBS programing. I have e-mailed everyone I know and asked them to boycott CBS also. So far everyone is on board with me. Who needs CBS anyway? We have Blockbuster, Net Flix, Red Box and many other choices for entertainment. When Bank of America decided to hit their customers with senseless fees they revolted. Perhaps this is the start of people telling Hollywood to leave our rights under the Constitution alone!

  • Five-0 hunts for a maimed ex-convict who is seeking revenge on the police officers responsible for his injuries and incarceration.

    "Hookman" was not the best episode I have ever seen, but it was entertaining to say the least. Peter Weller makes a very good villain as he did on "24". Though he was only on screen for a short time, it was good to see Masi Oka back on the show after a rather lengthy absence. The one problem I had with this episode is that it seemed to move a little too fast. It seemed the writers tried to squeze too much into this episode. However this is made up for to a certain degree by an exciting climactic shoot out sequence. In the end, I hope that remaking episodes from the original series does not become a habit. "Hawaii Five-0" should focus on its own ideas instead of recycling old ones.moreless

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (2)

    • This episode is a remake of Hookman, the sixth-season premiere of the original Hawaii Five-O (first broadcast September 11, 1973). In tribute, the episode's title and guest stars are featured in the same yellow typeface as the original series. This also makes it the first episode of the new series to display the episode title, and the first episode to have a non-Hawaiian language title.

    • Goof: When McKinney shows up to meet Stoner to buy the gun, he starts out by asking him, "Are you a cop?". He then says that it's the law that Stoner must tell him if he asks if he is a cop. This is an age old myth in TV cop shows. There never has been any such law. If there was, it would be impossible for the police to ever do undercover work.

  • QUOTES (3)

    • Steve: What's your problem? You don't like guns? You got one on your hip.
      Danny: This is a necessity of the job, okay, but I do not love guns the way you love guns.
      Norm: If purchased legally and used responsibly, they're a civilian's best friend.
      Danny: I thought that was a dog.
      Norm: They're better than dogs. You get the physical protection, you don't have walk it, don't have to feed it.

    • Danny: You know the difference between cover and concealment? One hides you from bullets, the other hides you from sight. Here I have both.
      Steve: Yes, I know the difference between cover and concealment.
      Danny: You do? Because right now, you the Navy SEAL, you got neither.

    • Steve: Hey, McKinney, you come out or we're coming in.
      McKinney: The door's wide open, cop! (starts the shootig)
      Danny: What are you doing?
      Steve: What am I doing? I'm going to smoke him out.
      Danny: Okay, Steve, stop. Okay? SWAT is on their way, right now. Can we, please, please give them the professional courtesy that they deserve and let them do their job?
      Steve: You done?
      Danny: I'm done, why?
      Steve: Cover me.
