  • Pretty good example of an episode featuring more standard police work.

    Five-O and the feds have practically stopped drugs from coming through Hawaii. What is the next criminal plan?



    This is a nice episode, lots of police work, a decent villainous plot that has potential, nothing too improbable in the department of super sluething.



    Ed Flanders returns to the series yet again, on this series he's played such roles as a new age drug guru and a biologist who has developed a pathogen that can wipe out all life on the island. Here, its a little more pedestrian, he's merely a long-time smuggler who has a private airplane delivery company. The method of smuggling "horse" into Oahu is fairly unique, a pick-up at sea and a drop via skydiver -- so that no airport deliveries can be raided. This story is somewhat unique in that McGarrett and company figure out who is guilty fairly early on and have to spend most of their time proving their suspicions, a task that involves tracking flights via the local FAA and radar. Chin and Frank do a lot of important legwork and shadowing, and for some reason, Danno (as usual) gets to spout lots of lines about drugs and the deadly heroin ("horse"). Ross (played by Flanders) only really tries one double-cross (on the skydiver), a nice number for a typical viewer to follow.



    I'd rank this episode as better than mid-pack for the series as a whole.moreless
