Goofs

At the beginning of the episode, the events take place on the stern of the boat "Irene Kay." All of the actors and the stern of the boat are well-lit, as if the light were coming from behind the boat. When the boat is shown from the Coast Guard helicopter, however, it is sailing almost directly into a low angle sun, which casts the entire stern into shadow. During close-in shots on the boat during the rest of this sequence, however, the stern is once again well-lit with light coming from behind. See more »

I guess I've seen too many episodes of "Hawaii Five-O" recently, as this one probably should have excited me more than it did. It wasn't a bad episode at all--but also didn't do much for me one way or another.

The show begins with some guys in a fishing boat out collecting a shipment of heroin from the ocean. However, as soon as the scuba diver brought the shipment aboard, the leader of this group of crooks shoots him. One of the crew, a young blond guy, reacts badly--and is obviously shaken. Moments later, Five-O and the Coast Guard come upon the ship--obviously they'd been tipped off about the shipment. So, the dump the gun and drugs overboard--intending to return later to retrieve them. As the body washed away and there was no incriminating evidence, they had to release the crooks. But, the leader of these thugs (the killer) is concerned that Blondie was obviously shaken and seemed almost ready to spill his guts--and you can easily guess what will eventually happen to this wimpy guy. But what about the drugs? How will they retrieve them? Well, actually considering the title of the episode it's not too hard to figure out this answer. And, who is the mastermind behind all this? Tune in and see.

Worth seeing, but the submarine angle seemed a bit far-fetched. However, it was nice seeing Jack Cassidy (father of David and Shaun) and the episode was different.
