  • Pearl Harbor cold case

    8.0
    50 solve a murder of an American Japanese civilian, committed after the pearl Harbor air raid in 1941
  • The other side of story

    7.5
    While this episode was still very much in the sense of we-are-the-best-and-a-soldier-would-never-do-that that is ever-present in pretty much all H50 episodes I like that they at least attempted to show the other side of the story and I applaud the attempt at showing the non-so-bright parts of history. Interesting episode for sure.
  • On a cold Winter's day in Canberra

    8.0
    I sit here on a freezing Winter's day in Canberra, Australia watching this episode, and I cant help but be moved by the truth of the story being told. I also cried for the last 15 minutes. Brilliant episode
  • More than the usual fluff

    9.0
    It's been slow coming, but Americans are finally starting to acknowledge some of the darker parts of their WWII history, such as their shameful treatment of returning black servicemen, like the Tuskegee Airmen, and their unjustified imprisonment of innocent Japanese Americans after the attack on Pearl Harbour. History is written by the winners, and it's only because we won that some of these actions weren't considered war crimes. Remembering is the first step in preventing them from ever happening again. Bravo. Great episode.moreless

    mos def best episode of the season; respect for the accurate presentation of the terrible things we did to Japanese- Americans. And all that about the brother and the 442nd Regimental Combat Team of the WWII United States Army is true too = it was composed almost entirely of American soldiers of Japanese descent that only fought in European Theater - the most decorated infantry regiment in the history of the United States Army. The 442nd was awarded eight Presidential Unit Citations and twenty-one of its members were awarded the Medal of Honor.

    Kudos to the writers - and all the actors really brought their A-game. Well Donemoreless

    • Danny: Well, I'd like to state, for the record, that I am confused. We got an old guy with a gun who made a premeditated decision to kill somebody. And we don't lock him up, instead we, uh, we run errands for him.
      Steve: This isn't a street crime. And it's not about money. This case is about honor. His method, it was wrong. I don't condone it. But we owe it to him to, at the very least, investigate.
      Danny: Okay, I see what's happening. You know what you're becoming, right?
      Steve: Bet you're gonna tell me, aren't you?
      Danny: A big softie.
      Steve: I was right.
      Danny: With a bleeding heart, which somehow you now have. I mean, I don't know, maybe-maybe you're becoming a human being, Steve.
