Take down 5-0
14 August 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is another let's get McGarrett/5-0 episode but I did not really understand why the young lawyer played by a young Martin Sheen, a bit overacting to me, was really after him in some master plot.

This time they are after Chin to discredit 5-0. Of course, Chin has zero alibi's so the perfect suspect for bribery charges and Kam Fong played the role showing a severe guilt complex. The heat is on McGarrett from on high.

The ending was unconventional for a police force and more closer to something from Mission: Impossible but probably happens today. I guess he was desperate after the Governor was going to hand the investigation over to someone else.

I liked seeing Chin character more in this episode and liked the photography. There was a lot of outside scenes moving between places so gave it a fairly fast feel. I definitely like seeing the 70's Hawaii.
