Hawaii Five-0 Review: Ending With A Bang

" Ua Hala :" Death in the Family. I have to hand it to Peter Lenkov, he certainly knows how to shake things up and give us a dramatic ending to Hawaii Five-0 ’s sophomore season while still leaving a few hooks for us to come back to in the fall... without ending entire story on a cliff hanger.  Before we get into the exciting things, I have to mention something that really bugged me and detracted from the overall story: how Max got shot. In what reality would the cops have not completely roped off both ends of the alley before the coroner was called in? And assuming that it was a breach in protocol that caused it, why would Hilary (the shooter) still be in the alley if she was mobile enough to outrun Steve and the rest of Five-0?   Read More... //www.tvfanatic.com/2012/05/hawaii-five-o-review-ending-with-a-bang/

'Hawaii Five-0' Season 2 finale: Chin Ho's choice and McGarrett's big discovery

"Hawaii Five-0" seemingly reached an endpoint last week, when McGarrett finally got his hands on Wo Fat and watched a prison cell door close on his nemesis. But while McGarrett's quest ended up involving Kono as well, the final chapters of it didn't exactly engage the whole Five-0 team.That was not the case with "Ua Hala" ("Death in the Family"), which presented everyone with huge stakes, from Danny's custody battle to what was on the other side of the door in Shelburne's hideout (more on that in a bit). But it was what happened to Chin Ho that really hit hard.The case of the week involves a presumed-dead bank robber shooting and killing Chief Fryer (so long, Tom Sizemore), blowing a police building to smithereens and then shooting it out with the Five-0 team. The team traces a connection to imprisoned dirty cop Frank Delano, and we eventually find out the whole thing was an... //blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2012/05/hawaii-five-0-season-2-finale-chin-hos-choice-and-mcgarretts-big-discovery.html

Hawaii Five-0 Season Finale “Ua Hala” Review – How Will (Spoiler) Survive??

If you read my  interview with the H50 show runners  about last night’s finale of  Hawaii Five-0 , called "Ua Hala" (which means "Death in the Family"), then you may have been slightly prepared for the stress levels you experienced during this episode. If you didn’t read it, then I hope that this one didn’t leave you as freaked out as it did when I watched it the first time. Last year’s finale was pretty powerful, but this one definitely topped it and also makes me wonder how they’re going to do it again next year. I mean if they keep this up, every season finale is going to leave me suffering from palpitations. Much as the previews promised, we did indeed lose a team member, though I doubt anyone was predicting that it would be Fryer. After that, things continue to get more and more serious for the team as it becomes clear that someone is out for  revenge  against the unit.

Hawaii Five-0 Review: Welcome Home Steve

" Ua Hopa :"  Caught. Following his time off , Alex O'Loughlin made a spectacular return to Hawaii Five-0 this week, looking healthier than he has in months. Steve was able to catch Wo Fat in Japan and got him back into U.S. territories before all Hell broke loose and he ended up crashing the plane they were on. Did anyone else cheer when Steve beat Wo Fat in the hand-to-hand fight? After watching Wo Fat get the better of Joe  earlier this season , I was thrilled to see Steve come out on top with a T.K.O. Of cours,e that was only the beginning of his problems, given that the Yakuza seemed to want them both dead.   Read More... //www.tvfanatic.com/2012/05/hawaii-five-o-review-welcome-home-steve/

'Hawaii Five-0': McGarrett and Wo Fat are back, plus details on the 'jaw-dropping' finale

"Hawaii Five-0" dealt rather deftly with Alex O'Loughlin's unplanned absence for a couple of episodes, and we get to see the reults of McGarrett's on-screen departure play out Monday (May 7) in the season's penultimate episode. Wo Fat stories seem to raise the show's game a little, and "Ua Hopu" followed that pattern.McGarrett gets half of what he wanted in Japan, bringing Wo Fat back to Hawaii in handcuffs in what was a suspiciously easy collar. The horrifying mess in the bathroom of Wo Fat's Osaka crash pad, it turns out, is what's left of Yakuza elder Hiro Noshimuri, which is bad news for both is son Adam and for Kono. Why Kono? Because Adam is the secret new boyfriend she's been calling all the time these past couple weeks. Adam is trying to take his family's interests to the legitimate side of the ledger, but he's also bound to avenge his father's death. Which... //blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2012/05/hawaii-five-0-mcgarrett-and-wo-fat-are-back-plus-details-on-the-jaw-dropping-finale.html

Hawaii Five-0 “Ua Hopu” Review – Yes! McGarrett is Back!

In this episode of  Hawaii Five-0 , called "Ua Hopu" (which is Hawaiian for "Caught"), McGarrett finally returns from his trip to Japan. The trip isn’t without its challenges though. While tracking down Shelburne, McGarrett runs across chatter about Wo Fat. In what had to be the easiest raid ever, Steve finds his sworn enemy sitting there waiting for him. Once he has the guy, Steve makes the call we’ve been waiting a couple weeks for – he contacts Danny. As much fun as it was to see Danny and the rest of the team  play  with the NCISLA guys last week (and boy howdy was that fun), my heart was so happy when Steve and Danny had that phone conversation. Heck, they even managed to fit in an argument for old times’ sake. Read More... //www.tvequals.com/2012/05/08/hawaii-five-0-ua-hopu-review/  

Hawaii Five-O Review: Welcome Hanna and Callen

" Pa Make Loa :" Touch of Death This episode marked the first part of the NCIS: Los Angeles/Hawaii Five-0 cross-over event that many fans of both shows have been waiting for. This was also the second (and last) episodes that will be affected by Alex O’loughlin’s absence. I will freely admit that I’m like Danny when it comes to biological warfare. Even when I was in the service, the idea that something I can’t see could cause my rapid death gave me the willies and I would have become a hypochondriac just like Danny did on this case.

Hawaii Five-0 “Pa Make Loa” Review – The Crossover with NCIS:Los Angeles Begins With a Bang!

After watching tonight’s episode of  Hawaii Five-0 , called "Pa Make Loa" (which means " Touch  of Death") all I can say is – more crossovers please! In fact, the only bad thing that I can say about this one is that it was  missing  McGarrett. But I know that couldn’t be helped so it’s really more of a wish than a complaint. I’m sure we’ll see him in the next crossover (yes, I’m totally assuming that it will happen again). McGarrett does make an appearance of sorts, though. When the episode starts we see Danny in Steve’s house  going through all of his papers and trying to figure out what his partner is doing. Danny finds a clue to where he thinks Steve may have gone but before he and Chin can act on it they are called off to deal with a man who died of smallpox after being injected with the disease.

Hawaii Five-O Review: Taking Out the Trash

" Ha'alele :"  Abandoned Allow me to start with the elephant in the room. This episode is the first of two episodes that will be affected by Alex O’loughlin’s absence . That being said, I have to give a nod to the writers and production staff, they did a great job of adjusting this episode to deal with the missing McGarrett. I'm sure I speak for a lot of use when I say that I hope O'loughlin's time off has helped him and I look forward to his return.  With that out of the way let’s talk about the amount of information we got on Max this week! What a revealing episode for him. When Masi Oka first joined the cast as Max Bergman back in season one , I really didn't like the character at all. He was too quirky, the OCD and eccentricities really turned me off the character. Read More... //www.tvfanatic.com/2012/04/hawaii-five-o-review-taking-out-the-trash/

Hawaii Five-0 “Ha `alele’” Review – Max Rights a Few Wrongs

In this episode of  Hawaii Five-0 , called "Ha `alele’" (which is Hawaiian  for ‘abandoned’) a case hits one of the team mates really hard. But it’s not McGarrett, because he’s not even in town. We’ve all been wondering how they were going to explain  Alex O’Loughlin’s absence , and in this episode we find out. They explain it by having McGarrett leave a note for Danny saying that he was going to look for Joe White so he could give him the real identity of Shelburne. It’s as good a reason as any to have Steve leave town for a bit. Back on the big island , the team is put on the case of a woman who is murdered at the side of the road. The MO matches a serial killer called the Trash Man, and though that man was apparently put in prison, Max isn’t convinced the police caught the right person. Turns out the Trash Man killed Max’s biological mother and Max went to prison to speak to the man who took away his mom, only to realize it wasn’t him.
