  • This is as worst as it gets.

    2.0
    The last three seasons of Five-0 are simply dreadful compared to the first nine. Weak stories, boring presentation, acting that was rarely above average, bad music accompanyment...you name it.

    This episode ranks at the bottom of this abyss. I rate it lower than anything from the abysmal twelfth season due to the fact that poor James MacArthur was still around for it; while Lord had basically become the main man running the show (he directed this episode BTW) MacArthur was in this 11th season of "With James MacArthur" status.

    Besides that the story of this episode is very incomplete. It's not till the end that anyone figures out that two possible sister suspects are the same deranged woman? There's no record of the dead sister's drowning death? A psychiatrist couldn't tell two patients of his were the same person? (must have wanted the two fees!)

    Worst beyond that is this episode has to have the worst accompanying music. Throughout the episode you get a vocal/string melody that it is horribly high-pitched, reminding one of the soap opera "Guiding Light"'s opening theme in the late seventies.

    I guess the best thing to say about this episode is it's a classic why the die-hard Hawaii Five-0 fan really doesn't rave about the final years. And perhaps to see an episode they never saw before--and most likely in this case wont want to watch again.moreless
