Good issue episode
3 February 2010 | by See all my reviews

Issue-oriented episode dealing with commercial real estate development. When this episode was filmed, Waikiki in particular was in the midst of a hotel boom. This was an big issue for some locals, since traditional Hawaiian culture didn't recognize private property rights. Since this is "Hawaii Five-O" and not "Meet the Press," the story kicks off with the state land commissioner being blown to bits. Ultimately, the trail leads Five-O to a disgruntled native Hawaiian (played by Simon Oakland), upset over losing his native lands to commercial interests.

Oakland, is of course no native Hawaiian, but he does a pretty good job conveying the conflict people like his character felt.

During the course of this episode, the Five-O team examines a home movie for clues, giving them their first opportunity to use the Five-O Magic Movie Projector. It can freeze frames (without burning the film) and even zoom in on individual images (with crystal clarity, of course).
