  • You'll have an easier time finding Waldo than an honest soul in this episode.

    Are the men at Five-O the only honest people on this show? You might get that impression watching this episode, in which $600,000 stolen from the . government the American taxpayer) is in turn stolen by a corrupt . agent after he murders the thief, then the loot accidentally winds up in the hands of a middle-aged couple (one of whom is Howard Sprague) who then promptly notify the authorities. NOT! Nope, they decide they deserve to have it all to themselves, or at least Howie does. Then a stewardess, who seems innocent at first, tricks the couple into handing it over to her, or so she thinks. She then gets offed by the tax creep, who begins an all-out search for the couple, who still have the money. We hear all the time about honest people of modest means who find large amounts of money and don't hesitate to turn it over to the police. They make good human interest stories, but not drama and adventure, which is what you get here, along with a tax collector who really deserves your contempt.moreless

  • TRIVIA (1)

    • At the end of act three, McGarrett and Danno tail Cavell in their car. Cavell stops at a stoplight and looks in his rear view mirror. McGarrett and Danno appear - looking like they're in the back seat. What's more, the shot shows McGarrett and Danno still moving, while the view out of Cavell's front windshield shows that he's stopped - which gives the impression that McGarrett and Danno should be plowing right into him!
