HAWAII FIVE-0 “Ho’ohuli Na’au” Review

HAWAII FIVE-0  "Ho’ ohuli Na’ au" Season 1 Episode 22 – Tonight’s episode featured Rick Springfield as a photographer who gets blown to bits by the daughter he abandoned twenty years ago. I’m not going to say any more than that because the real story in this episode was all about Chin. Now that his aunt has passed, Chin’s uncle is ready to take responsibility for what he did and confess that it was he who took the money from evidence. Now you’d think that this would be a time forcelebration  but you’d be wrong. You see, if Chin’s uncle admits what happened, all of his cases could be called into question. Literally hundreds of people that he put away could end up out on the streets again. Unwilling to let that happen, Chin does the unthinkable (at least to me anyway); he tells IA that he did indeed steal the money and in order to prove it, he goes to a known loan shark  on the island so he can borrow the cash and produce it.

'Hawaii Five-O' 1.22 'Ho'ohuli Na'au' Review

If anyone else started humming "Jessie's Girl" during the beginning of tonight's  Hawaii Five-O , you're forgiven. Unfortunately, Rick Springfield isn't with us long: he's a sleazy fashion photographer who gets barbecued in his own trailer. Pretty short for a guest appearance that CBS thought highly enough of to promote in their episode listing! (And before episode's end, my local CBS affiliate would also run a spot for the late local news about his DUI arrest. You can't make this stuff up.) As is normal with a premise like this - which I know I've seen used for at least one  Law & Order  episode before - there's no shortage of suspects, whether it's Alana, the current squeeze who happens to be pregnant (that's  Breakout Kings  star Serinda Swan), the ex Jordan (Angela Lindvall), somebody collecting on his gambling debts, or the dead guy's illegitimate kid. Make no mistake, this is not the most novel episode of  Hawaii Five-O . Which made the appearance of HBO's new TV spot poking fun at every crime drama cliche even more amusing. I have to quibble on some of the details as well - like how the bookie's minions must have been spectacularly stupid not to know that they were being set up, given how awkward it was for Kamekona to call them. He had to read what to say, for crying out loud. Did that not sound suspicious to them? Not to mention the slightly sappy caveat that our victim wasn't such a bad guy at the end? It all adds up to a less than great plot overall.  Hawaii Five-O  usually has something about each episode that distinguishes it from other crime shows, but not this time.

Hawaii Five-O Review: "Ho'ohuli Na'au"

Tonight's episode was fun, but the real meat in "Ho'ohuli Na'au" came from the side story focusing on Chin and that infamous missing money. Not long ago Chin had revealed that he took the fall after his uncle had stolen money from a police evidence locker in order to save his wife's life. Chin's aunt passed away, and his uncle tried to make things right for Chin by going to Internal Affairs and confessing to taking the money. Chin, being the man that he is, decided to tell I.A. that he had actually stolen the money, not his uncle. Read More... //www.tvfanatic.com/2011/05/hawaii-five-o-review-hoohuli-naau/
