  • I have to admit to a cringe when I saw the trailers..

    Lachey and Minillo? I thought I must have eaten some bad beef or something.

    But nope. There they were. Though it wasn't actually as bad as I thought it might be. While there, Lachey largely had his face under a balaclava, and Minillo was, thankfully, in briefly at the start and out in handcuffs at the end. Fitting, somehow.

    But the story line was a decent offering of a parent's worst spring break nightmare. And I doubt it would top any kid's "to do" list either.

    I felt badly for the parent's of the kid who died; they would never stop regretting their decision though I would imagine in reality its a damned if you do-damned if you don't kind of thing.

    At any rate, you have to be up pretty early (and be a better actor!) to fool McGarrett. He saw through the plotter' scheme, managed to save the day, and by all appearances, was able to recycle several old Honolulu phone books and yellow pages while he was at it.

    Nice day's work, Steve...
