  • My father played Sven on the episode You Don't See Many Pirates These Days

    7.0
    I have the final draft of the original script in my possession..... I also have another script from a different episode that has been autographed by a few of the cast, including Jack Lord and James MacArthur,
  • Modern day pirates wreak havoc on the high seas of Hawaii, while McGarrett deals with a secretive shipping magnate.

    This episode, while not quite as effective as its predecessor, "Up The Rebels", continues the Tenth Season's strong opening run. A complex mystery is set up for the Five-O team to solve, leading to an exciting chase to catch the culprits.



    The opening of the episode, featuring the take-over of the Stavrik ship, reminds the viewer that the series still pulls no punches in its depictions of violence and ruthlessness.



    The story by Bill Stratton (from an idea by James Lydon) provides a good framework on which to sustain the mystery of who exactly "Mr Big" is; the direction by Ron Satlof is very effective, the director obviously comfortable with the maritime setting.



    Guest artists Rossano Brazzi and Mark Lenard add gravitas to the segment; Lenard is strong as the Naval Commander, while Brazzi convincingly portrays the owner with something to hide.



    The ending, whilst of a somewhat standard nature, manages to be elegantly short and also convey McGarrett's indignation at what has transpired.moreless
