Trivia

Early in the episode, Filer makes reference to McGarrett about the cocaine coming in at Kaena Point. Kaena Point is the westernmost tip of land on the island of Oahu. The point can be reached on foot from both the East via Oahu's North Shore / Mokulea, and Southwest via Waianae Coast. An unimproved track extends some 3 miles along the coast from the end of the paved road on the east side, where a gate prevents entry of all except authorized vehicles. On the southeast side, at Kaena State Park, a paved road passes a beach before terminating into an unpaved road. Filer also mentions Route 93, which is the road that leads to Kaena Point from the Waianae side. See more »

Goofs

When Filer picks the lock and opens the gate at the guard station, it's obvious that there is no bolt or even a hole for a bolt in the side of the lock. See more »

Quotes

Goro Shibata: [to the Rood twins] There is a hole in this organization. I intend to plug it up... With as many bodies as it takes.

not even close to the original
30 July 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

the lesson to be learned is obvious. once you trap magic in a bottle don't let it get away and most of all don't try to recreate it. this episode does not even come close to the original filer story. virtually no humor at all, a small bit of original music but most of all too much of a story involving drug money. The original worked because it was more about the Filer character and less about the money. He delighted in taunting McGarret and we delighted in watching it. The original is an all time TV classic. No story and certainly not this one will ever come close. Nice try but no cigar. Stick with the original. You will never ever forget it.
