Goofs

At or around thirty minutes, Tasi leaves the Afuso warehouse. He takes his keys and appears to unlock the driver door. When he opens the door, it is clearly evident that the window is open. As he drives from the warehouse, it is apparent that all of the car windows are open. It is unknown why he would have locked the car but left the windows open. See more »

Quotes

Li Wing: [to his nephew, Lai Po] You will present my most solicitous greetings to our three unfriendly allies, and tell them that I expect them here at once to discuss a matter of grave mutual concern.

Dang!! Hawaii is a horribly unsafe place according to this episode!
29 March 2010 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

While this is a pretty good episode, I also think it's a bit silly. After all, if Hawaii was really this gangster-ridden, it would make Somalia or Haiti seem like paradise! After all, we learn for the first time that there are four ethnic gangs--some of which are extremely racist. There are the Chinese, Japanese, Samoan (Samoan!?) and Korean gangs--and one of them appears to be behind the killing of a mafia muscle-man who is on the islands! Yikes! And all this takes place only on the island of Oahu!! Despite the silliness of all these mobs running the island, the show is pretty cool. There are a lot of nice twists and turns and the ending works pretty well. The only real negative (other than so many gangs) is that the wonderful Jewish character actor David Opatashu plays the leader of a Chinese gang!! And, despite this being ridiculous, this is the SECOND time he played a Chinese man!! Couldn't they have gotten someone who at least looked Asian?! Keye Luke might have made a great gang leader!
