Hawaii Five-0 1.18 “Loa Aloha” Review

At this point in its first season, Hawaii Five-0 seems perfectly content to rely on relatively straightforward standalone plots without much progression to the season-long arc. (That, in itself, isn’t necessarily a bad thing... When the standalone plots aren’t engaging enough, though, it feels like wasted time.) Despite some (sort of) interesting developments with Danno, last night’s episode was more of the same - ‘Loa Aloha’ may have had its occasional decent moments, but it was mostly disappointing, with a significant amount of it spent focussed on a boring case-of-the-week.

That case essentially boils down to being about a man named Travis (whose son died in prison after being charged with a DUI) seeking revenge on the judges (and lawyer) he sees as responsible for his son’s death. It all begins when the first of the judges receives an ominous phone call on his 60th birthday, only to then watch his daughter fall to her death after the zip-line that she’s on snaps (due to a remotely detonated explosive). As you can probably guess, Travis aims to make his victims feel the pain that he did... by murdering their children. From that point onwards, it’s unsurprising where the story goes and really, it’s just not all that interesting or compelling. Read More...
