Hawaii Five-O Review: "Ke Kinohi"

Hawaii Five-O  kicked off the 2011 with non-stop action in "Ke Kinohi," as the energy and focus of the story led to one of the best episodes of the season. The consequences of McGarrett's investigation into his mother's murder started to come to light. The tool box left by McGarrett's father, filled with cryptic clues, was stolen and the detective's sister was kidnapped for trying her hand at the investigation. Within 15 minutes of the episode, McGarrett was a man on a mission. McGarrett's intensity and deep personal involvement in the case were well-tempered by Danno, who acted as the voice of reason throughout. That voice wasn't enough to keep McGarrett from over-stepping some rational boundaries, but I think having it there helped ease the character down when the governor also had to step in. Jean Smart, as Governor Pat Jameson, was a treat as always. She had some subtle, albeit telling, moments in her interactions with McGarrett. Loved how she needed a beer after receiving bad news, but still layed down the facts of the matter honestly, as the immunity she extended the Five-O could only go so far. To Read More  Click Here.

'Hawaii Five-O' 1.13 'Ke Kinohi' Review - Starpulse

"Ke Kinohi" is the episode we've all been waiting for since...well, two weeks ago. Or since Taryn Manning gave an interview where she vented her frustrations. Never mind the behind the scenes drama; there's enough in front of the camera, with a fair bit of anticipation for this episode, especially on the heels of how great the previous one was. (Probably even a little more for me, as I had myself an Alex O'Loughlin marathon this weekend. After which, I need to admit that I am taking membership in his fan club. You can say 'I told you so' later.) Just when Steve gets a victory by putting down Victor Hesse for the second time, he has what might be the worst day of his life, as he discovers a trio of bad guys breaking into his house. The place is trashed in a struggle that sees Steve Tasered and his father's toolbox stolen. As if that wasn't enough, Mary Ann has been kidnapped after putting up a fight of her own. It doesn't take a genius to realize that Steve was personally targeted - especially if you remember that last time, Hesse was telling Wo Fat that Steve knew too much. Thankfully, Mary isn't in danger for long, but the warpath brings the team into the path of the yakuza (that's Japanese organized crime), namely one Hiro Noshimuri (that's Mortal Kombat's Shang Tsung himself, Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa), a man that Steve's father had also been pursuing. By the halfway point, the question is if the son can succeed where his father failed - especially when his opponent is a friend of Governor Jameson herself? To Read More Click Here.

HAWAII FIVE-0 “Ke Kinohi” Review

Most of the time I can’t say that I enjoy being wrong but this is one of those times where I have no problem with it whatsoever. I reported last week that Taryn Manning was leaving Hawaii Five-0 and I thought I was pretty sure I knew what that meant. When the previews showed her getting kidnapped, I figured that was it for McGarrett’s little sis. Well, like I said, I was wrong. Turns out Mary is fine and well at the end of this episode, she’s just been sent off to the mainland by her big brother to be safe. And it’s no wonder either, after all that happened in this one. It started off with a bang, or maybe I should say with a stun, and the energy and action pretty much never stopped from there. We finally found out exactly what happened to McGarrett’s mother and why she was killed and though it all seems to be pretty well wrapped up in the end, I’m sure this isn’t the last we’ve heard from this story. After all there is still the Wo Fat connection, which wasn’t really delved into at all. To Read More Click Here.
