HAWAII FIVE-0 “Ka Iwi Kapu” Review

HAWAII FIVE-0   "Ka Iwi Kapu" Season 2 Episode 7 – In this episode the team has to handle everything from Freddy Krueger  (okay no not really, but how cool was it to see Robert Englund?), grave robbers, kids trespassing on sacred ground, bodies going missing from caskets, hands in duffle bags…oh yeah and a murder. Sounds like your typical Halloween  to me. I enjoyed how they managed to put in some creepy/scary moments in with the normal crime and action. Danny’s discovery of the ghost lady at his new apartment was classic. Speaking of Danny; it looks like things went pretty well on Danny and Gabby’s first date, judging by the fact that they acted like a couple of shy teenagers in front of Steve and Weston. So far, I’m really liking Gabby and I guess it’s pretty obvious we’re going to see more of her. For his sake, I hope this relationship goes well – or at the very least doesn’t end in heartbreak. I don’t think he could handle that again just yet. Read More... //www.daemonstv.com/2011/11/01/hawaii-five-0-ka-iwi-kapu-review/

'Hawaii Five-0' Recap: 'Ka Iwi Kapu' (2.07)

Rarely are holiday-related episodes that good; most of them don't have much substance to them beyond the gimmick of whatever special date they're centered around. (A rare exception was NBC's  Life , which had a second season episode entitled "Black Friday," but that episode was good because it was well-written and acted, not necessarily because of any particular festive addition.) This week's  Hawaii Five-0 started by evoking reminders of  The Blair Witch Project  and didn't really improve from there. The Halloween parts of the show just didn't work for me. Do we need to hear the team bantering about what Lori's Halloween costume might have been when they're at an active crime scene? (Was it weird to anyone else that she called Danny "Danno," by the way?) And although watching Scott Caan as exasperated Danny is always a treat, the writers pushed that a little far with his "I don't care about curses" schtick. No matter what  his  beliefs about curses, he's been around the Five-0 team long enough that I don't think he'd disrespect theirs. The only part of the spooky stuff I really enjoyed was the use of Ray Parker Jr.'s "Ghostbusters," a song that never gets old for me.

Hawaii Five-0 Review: Oh, the Horror

" Ka Iwi Kapu " = Sacred Bones. This episode should serve as proof that TV shows should never attempt to capitalize on holidays. Even with a Halloween slant, the biggest horror on Hawaii Five-0 this week was the hour I spent watching it. Let me be perfectly clear: this was the worst episode of this show I have ever watched. It can only be broken in to two parts, bad and worse. See below. //www.tvfanatic.com/2011/11/hawaii-five-o-review-ka-iwi-kapu/
