A pretty good change of pace but also an episode that proves that McGarrett needs to loosen up!
24 April 2011 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

The show begins with a financial planner (Keene Curtis) being shuttled from bank to bank--as he liquidates funds from his clients' bank accounts. However, after a few banks, suspicion arises that he might be forced to do this, as he's being accompanied by a big man who sticks VERY close to him. And, when one of the banks tries to get him to wait until the police arrive, the big guy panics and begins firing. Soon, two innocent people are killed as is the big guy. His accomplice driving the getaway car and the financial planner take off--after this unseen driver shoots the guard and a citizen. The car then arrives shortly after at the docks--and the accomplice boats a cruise ship. Shortly after, the planner is found--dazed and apparently shot at by the crook. So, he, McGarrett and Danno board the ship and decide to take this cruise to California--and try to locate the money and killer during the one-week trip.

While not a great episode (the number of possible suspects was too low and there should have been more red herrings), it was a nice change of pace and enjoyable. I also liked seeing John Byner. While I have never been much of a fan, he was very funny during his brief stand-up routine. One final note. A very pretty female reporter tries to make time with McGarrett but he rebuffs her. Then, at the end, you don't see him making any efforts to locate her. Either he needs to relax more or I wonder if his character just didn't like women.
