  • A nut sends McGarrett notes about how he's helping McGarrett by killing folks out on technicalities.

    It was an okay episode. Anthony Zerbe with a classic villain performance, but what surprised me was the appearance of Casey Kasem! Yes,that Casey Kasem. He played an outspoken political commentator who helps McGarrett in flushing out Zerbe's character.



    While not the most compelling episode, it does leave the viewer wondering about their own views of Justice and Vigilantism and what difference is there, if any. Also it leaves you wondering about how , or if, there are ways we could 'fix' our court system so that the guilty aren't able to be released on technicalities.



    It's a good,thoughtful action episode that you should catch at least once.moreless
