Hawaii Five-0 5×23 ‘Moʻo ʻolelo Pu’: Where are you Hawaii?

Before this season’s finale Hawaii Five-0 decides to give us a Kono-centric episode before the hopeful wedding between her and Adam. While Kono is on a traditional boat trip she becomes lost at sea and must survive alone. Meanwhile Five-0 deal with a string of drug store robberies surrounding an old enemy of Chin. There’s trouble […]

Hawaii Five-0 5×22 ‘Ho’amoano’: The TV version of The Hangover

What is with all these shows recently turning to the soap opera storylines? Estranged family members. Really. Hawaii Five-0 goes away from Grover and Chin’s stories to focus on a reason a lot of people go to Hawaii: Spring Break. Three middle-aged accountants are in Hawaii to get laid, but when they find a dead […]

Hawaii Five-0 5×21 ‘Ua helele’i ka hoku’: Blue Hawaii

It was a sad day for rock n roll when the king died and Hawaii Five-0 makes us relive that tragic moment in history as the king dies… again? The poisoning death of an Elvis impersonator leads to a mystery involving smuggled diamonds from a previous case. Meanwhile the team is dealing with repercussions in their own lives. […]

Hawaii Five-0 5×20 ‘Ike Hanau’: Gut feeling

I have always been curious about Lou Grover’s story. We haven’t seen much of him outside Five-0 so it was only a matter of time before we dove into a case related to his past. Grover looks into the death of his best friend’s wife during a hiking accident which leaves Grover torn between instinct […]

Hawaii Five-0 5×19 ‘Kahania’: Jerry’s doppelganger

With Danny M.I.A. after the events of “Pono Kaulike,” Hawaii Five-0 turns it focus to the other, but not necessarily better, half of McDanno with Steve stuck in the middle of a rather odd situation. After a quick shave, Steve and Odell become trapped at the barbershop when they take in a man being hunted by a […]

Hawaii Five-0 5×18 ‘Pono Kaulike’: “You’re welcome.”

Last week’s “Kuka’awale” was one of the funniest episodes of Hawaii Five-0 and “Pono Kaulike” does the exact opposite giving us the most tension-filled episode of this season, and potentially one of the best of the entire series. The team faces a barrage of problems when their past actions creep up on them. Danny and […]

Hawaii Five-0 5×17 ‘Kuka awale’: I support gay marriage

This has got to be one of the funniest episodes of Hawaii Five-0 to date. I guess it is what you can expect when an actor from the show directs an episode. For his directorial debut Daniel Dae Kim did a phenomenal job (and he had a lot of help from some guest star power), but […]

Hawaii Five-0 5×16 ‘Nanahu’: Don’t look back whatever you do

What is with Hawaii Five-0 and all of its guest stars this season? They are really going all out, not that I am complaining. Apologies for both the late review and the lack of Five-0 recapping last week, life got a bit hectic. Don’t fret because this weekend will be filled with back-to-back Five-0 goodness! […]

Hawaii Five-0 5×14 ‘Powehiwehi’: Head out on the highway

Okay again with the lack of Danny? This is becoming a recurring theme and I do not like it one bit. The McDanno dynamic is what makes this show and yet there has been less and less of it. Come on already! Give us what we want to see. Anyway, on Hawaii Five-0 the team […]

Hawaii Five-0 5×13 ‘La Poino’: Oh, no! Not the bees!

Dam that was unexpected. Such an intense episode. A patient with a volatile illness is brought to the island by Joe, but a team of kidnappers take the virus carrier. Steve and the team must retrieve the patient before the kidnappers can weaponize the virus. Hawaii Five-0 certainly knows how to ramp up the intensity. Five-0 is […]

H50 5x12.1

Hawaii Five-0 5×12 ‘Poina ole’: “That’s why I love you, babe.”

A neurosurgeon is assassinated moments before performing surgery on a Five-0 adversary while the team uncovers the truth behind a disappearance forty years ago. Meanwhile Steve’s car is stolen sending him on a chase to find one of his most treasured possessions. Sounds like a lot, but not really much happened this week. One thing is […]

H50 5x11.1

Hawaii Five-0 5×11 ‘Uaaihue’: Shrimpapalooza

Uh excuse me, but since when is no one aware of Danno? I mean not even a mention of his absence? I find that hard to believe. Hawaii Five-0 brings us some culture and twisting narratives this week when a tourist is killed after being the patsy for a stolen Van Gogh. The team has […]

H50 5x10.1

Hawaii Five-0 5×10 ‘Wawahi moeuhane’: Private eyes and unfaithful guys

Happy 2015! They didn’t waste any time bringing back Hawaii Five-0, but I’m certainly not complaining. Always love when a show decides to come back immediately rather than wait weeks or even months. For the first episode of the new year the team is tasked with investigating the murder of a young woman who comes […]

H50 5x09.1

Hawaii Five-0 5×09 ‘Ke Koho Mamao Aku’: Mele Kalikimaka!

Merry mid-season finale on Hawaii Five-0! It’s Christmas time and the team are off to the big island to solve a cowboy’s murder. Meanwhile Danny and Steve look to find the perfect Christmas tree by any means necessary and Max runs into an old frenemy. What this episode lacks in action, due to Steve’s absence […]

Hawaii Five-0 5×08 ‘Ka Hana Malu’: Money isn’t everything

After taking a week off, this week’s Hawaii Five-0 revolves around the murder of bankrupt couple who leave behind their children and a hefty life insurance policy. Between the kids, friends, lawyer and former clients everyone has a motive: money. Meanwhile Aunt Deb comes back to the island for the first time since her cancer diagnosis with […]

Hawaii Five-0 5×07 ‘Ina Paha’: Happy 100!

Happy 100th episode to Hawaii Five-0! Now it is not every day that a series hits the century mark so the creators tend to do something big for this milestone. The writers decided to thank the fans with a massive list of guest stars, a fanfiction-esque alternate universe (AU), a nostalgic montage and the conclusion […]

Hawaii Five-0 5×06 ‘Hoʻomaʻike’: I don’t like horror films, they insult my intelligence

In last week’s “Ho’olinina,” Steve solved his father’s final cold case while Danny and his family mourned the loss of Matt. The entire episode was pretty serious from start to finish, leading up to the eventual cliffhanger of Jerry’s backfired surveillance resulting in his capture at the hands of Farrow. Now although Jerry’s storyline has […]

Hawaii Five-0 5×05 ‘Hoʻoilina’: I smell a romance brewing

After four episodes of Danny-centric stories, this week’s Hawaii Five-0 is Danno-less. With the Williams family grieving, Steve has been thinking more about his father so on the anniversary of his death so it’s only necessary that we have a Steve-centric story exploring the relationship between him and his father. At the cemetery a mysterious woman […]

Hawaii Five-0 5×04 ‘Ka Noeʻau’: A barrel of fun (too soon?)

This week’s episode of Hawaii Five-0 revolves around the issues of two families: Danny’s and the Detroit crime family, the Bagosa’s. While the Bagosa issue is new to us, Danny’s story blew right open when in last week’s episode “Kanalu Hope Loa” he found Matt’s stolen money. This show never ceases to amaze me bringing us innovative […]

Hawaii Five-0 5×03 ‘Kanalu Hope Loa’: “Where’s the brains?”

This week’s episode of Hawaii Five-0 revolves around a robbery turned murder when a trio of women, who have made a name for themselves holding up tour busses, end up killing a man who isn’t prepared to give up his belongings. Meanwhile Danny is continuing to dig into the trouble his brother Matthew has gotten into. Mixed […]
