  • Good show, some problems with editing bothered me but may not be as critical to others.

    Organized crime from Detroit wants to move into Hawaii, and local gangster Johnny Oporta is all to happy to comply.



    A good episode, one with lots of detective work and a grisly plot device for getting rid of the bodies of local independent pimps and numbers-runners that are opposing Oporta. And Henry Darrow is good, seemingly able to rage and sweat on cue. There is a nice jump cut from a hobo attempting to pawn a stolen money clip saying "I found it" to Che Fong at a crime scene finding a bullet in a wall and saying "I found it." Probably one of the best Al Harrington roles before he became Ben on the series, he gets lots of lines and is pretty menacing.



    The plotting is clever and there are a number of good lines and facial expressions from McGarrett - when the government representative tells the Governor and Steve that the problem is all McGarrett's, his look of contempt is hilarious.



    What bothers me slightly is some sloppy editing, with garbage collection and incineration scenes repeated so often that even a casual viewer can notice and an under-developed plotting for a small-timer and his girlfriend, something that's important to the story but a little lost in the final product. One thing "Hawaii Five-O" could have used was some kind of rationale behind the crime bosses on the island - through season 7, I count over 14 people who seem to be kingpins on the island of Oahu.moreless

  • TRIVIA (1)

    • The same footage of two men pushing a dumpster to a garbage truck -- and a front loader garbage truck emptying the contents of the dumpster into the vehicle's hopper -- is used in two different scenes.

      In the first act, a man wearing a red, white and black striped shirt is tossed into the metal dumpster. When the front loader empties the dumpster, the victim's striped shirt is clearly visible.

      In the teaser, a man wearing a gray suit and a tan shirt is placed in a dumpster. After refuse is tossed on top of the body, we see the footage of two men pushing the dumpster, recycled from the scene later on. As the front loader empties the dumpster, a man's shirt is briefly visible. It is the shirt of the victim in the later scene (with the red, white and black stripes), not the tan shirt of the victim seen just moments earlier.

    • McGarrett: (warning a Detroit mob boss after Oporta is arrested) That plane leaves in fifteen minutes. You have your ticket. Be on it. And tell your friends, the deal is off... permanently!
