Trivia

This episode is largely a remake of "... And I Want Some Candy and a Gun That Shoots ..." which aired the previous season. The former episode was all too obviously based on the 1966 sniper massacre at the University of Texas in Austin, and the network declined to rebroadcast it because of its violence and the possibility it would encourage imitative behavior. So Leonard Freeman, writing his last episode, changed the motive for the sniper into distracting the cops from another crime (the kidnapping) and had his editors use as much footage from the earlier show as possible. Six years later, NBC used the same technique when it acquired the theatrical film "Two Minute Warning," filming an hour of extra footage about art thieves hiring the sniper to distract attention from a museum robbery (the film bombed).

Goofs

After Luther kills the first cop, Frank and Luther approach a green sedan that had been parked near them. The green sedan immediately flees the scene. Later on there is another shot of the parked cars, and the green sedan is still shown parked with the other two cars. See more »

Very good but a case of déjà vu!

In season four, "Hawaii Five-O" did a magnificent episode entitled "...And I Want Some Candy and a Gun That Shoots". I'd rank it among the very best episodes of the series--and it was a serious indictment against the lax standards for gun purchases at the time. A nut buys a high-powered rifle, scope and bullets and gives his name as "George S. Patton"--and the idiot behind the counter sells him the stuff!! Soon, the nut-job barricades himself on a hill in an old storage bunker and starts shooting cops! Apparently, the network hated this episode (perhaps since it might have offended some gun enthusiasts) and pulled it. Here in season five, the plot was resurrected and completely re-written--and used what looks like the identical location. Regular viewers, then, will be stumped and wonder why Five-O or the State Police didn't just fence off or level this bunker from Hell! The show begins with two dunderheads sneaking into a home and kidnapping a child. Oddly, the lady who is supposed to be watching the kid is calmly smoking in the next room--indifferent to the break-in. So, it's obvious from the start that this is some sort of inside job.

Now I said they were dunderheads because they obviously had no idea what they were doing and the big guy (Ron Feinberg) is brain damaged. His partner (Jackie Coogan--yes, he was Uncle Fester) has heart trouble and doesn't bring along any medication just in case and treats his partner like dirt. On the way from the caper, they are stopped for a routine problem by a cop--and Feinberg panics and kills the cop! Their car now won't start and the guys take off up a nearby hill and hide out in the bunker. And, when other police naturally respond, Feinberg begins shooting. How all this is resolved is something you'll need to see for yourself, but there is a nifty twist ending that makes this relatively routine and derivative episode worth seeing. I really think in hindsight they should have waited a few more seasons before doing this one. Also, it was the last episode written by Leonard Freeman--who had been the creator, writer and producer of the show but died shortly before this episode aired.
