    IT IS FANTASY!!!! So many reviewers are complaining about no realism well guess what folks NOTHING on TV is real!!!! (If you don't believe me, watch the news!!) This is entertainment!!! The show sort of takes all the things we'd like to do to bad guys and does it lol Since I am not serious about actors or their abilities I can't comment, however I love watching these people act like a normal family with ups and downs and squabbles but ultimately there for their friends!! Sadly it is fantasy since we could use a whole lot more of this in real life!!! This particular episode isn't the best one I've seen but it wasn't bad and kept me watching ;)moreless
  • Talk about getting feminist and stupid...

    1.0
    Between superspy, marie-sue mom, a navy inteligence LT that wouldn't normally even carry a weapon (much less know martial arts) and 110-pound Kono beating an ex-Special Forces guy in combat after falling from a 35 mph vehicle...



    This show is getting ridiculously stupid and I loved the first two seasons (god, I miss Lori).



    It is like some bitches complained about having a Navy SEAL with no apparent love interest and made it customary to have a slut as one. Let's not even get into the plots themselves. If I see one more suspect start a foot chase because Five-0 are stupid enough to not change their approaches by making them less obvious...



    In short, get rid of Catherine: she was nothing more than a booty call (that goes bothways) and she adds nothing to the plot. The mom? Useless. I can see a plot in which she and Wo Fat slept together and Steve happens to be the son of Wo Fat as a result of infidelity. It will also explain why the mom let Wo Fat go. Seeing her mom reeks of whore, that might be the case. As I have said, plot recycling is killing this show and this last example is one of them (X-Files, anyone?).



    The kid? I would have gotten a belt and whipped the character good so he would stay still. He was worse than the episode himself. Can we go back to Steve, Danno, Chin and Kono with the occasional Grace, Rachel, Cath, etc? That formula was golden and adding all of these tramp characters is making this show suck.moreless
  • Good actor

    9.0
    I don't normally watch much tv, but I caught this episode of Hawaii five-0 and enjoyed it. I remember seeing a movie at the theater named Least Among Saints, in which the young man, Tristan Leabu starred. He was wonderful and from what I understand, he was nominated for a best actor award by Chambie. Seeing him on tv was a nice surprise and I truly enjoyed his performance.
  • Tristan who played Ethan was INCREDIBLE!!! Tristan Lake Leabu will be a Famous Actor Soon!!!

  • Least Favorite Episode!!!

    1.0
    Couldn't even watch the whole thing. Ethan's acting on a scale of 1 to 10 was a 3 at best. His character was just plain annoying, and his acting left much to be desired. Did enjoy seeing George Takei though. He looked great.

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (1)

    • Right after the opening, Danny goes to help buy a helicopter. The copter beside the one he's helping to buy is the "same" one as seen in Magnum P.I. It has the same color scheme, same window layout, and one of the same skid configuration (wheels), as the copter used in the series. This looks to be a "hats off" by one Hawaiian based TV series to another.

  • QUOTES (4)

    • Kamekona: You can all redeem your tickets as soon as I get my pilot's license.
      Kono: Wait, wait, wait. You bought a helicopter and you don't have your license yet?
      Kamekona: Technicality, sista.

    • Steve: Sitting on the couch with a pizza watching Miracle on 34th Street, that-that's not plans.
      Danny: Oh, oh, but Christmas with the McGarretts is something you can't miss.
      Steve: That's right.
      Danny: Yeah, I'm just curious. What do you guys do? You give out subscriptions to Guns & Ammo, huh? Grenades as stocking stuffers?

    • Steve: (about Ethan) I like this kid.
      Catherine: Of course you do. He's you at 13.

    • Kamekona: All I need you to do is bring the price of the chopper down to 170 grand.
      Danny: Me?
      Kamekona: Mm-hmm.
      Danny: Your plan makes zero sense. Why me?
      Kamekona: Because the seller's a white guy and you haoles speak all the same language.
      Danny: You mean English?
      Kamekona: Yeah.
