Hawaii Five-0 Season 7 Episode 15 Review: Big Game

  • TVfanatic

Now that it's in its seventh season, Hawaii Five-0 has really started to tap into Hawaii's 1,000 years of history, discovering some unique narrative settings as a result.

This episode told the story of the Kalaupapa Leprosy Settlement, in the Kalaupapa National Historic Site on Molokai.

Interviews: Barbara Feldon, Bernie Kopell ‘Get Smart’ at The Hollywood Show

Chicago – The TV show “Get Smart,” which had its original run on the NBC network from 1965-1970, was an oddball classic. Created by Mel Brooks and Buck Henry, the sitcom was a goofy satire on cold war politics of the 1960s, with a hapless operative named Maxwell Smart (Don Adams) working for the Control agency, spying against a foreign menace called Kaos. Barbara Feldon (Agent 99) and Bernie Kopell (Sigfried) were part of the supporting cast.

Feldon and Kopell were also part of The Hollywood Show, a two day gathering of favorite TV and movie stars to meet fans and sign autographs.
