Goofs

Abraham Meleha has armed himself with a bolt action rifle, which means he has to manually operate the bolt to extract and reload a fresh round into the chamber. In his fire fight with McGarrett his rifle fires rapid fire like a semi automatic. The sound effects are in fact that of a M1 carbine semi automatic rifle. See more »

Not a bad episode..but certainly not one of the better ones.
10 December 2010 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

This is not a bad show, but it's also far from memorable and is one you could skip. Though, as I am a nut who loves to see EVERY episode of shows I like, naturally I reviewed it! Some sort of Hawaiian separatist movement is involved in some shenannigans and a trial is about to occur. However, there are worries that the group will want to disrupt the proceedings and the Governor and Five-O are particularly worried about a bombing. Much of the show consists of FIVE-O drilling and working out security details. However, a real shocker occurs when Five-O plants a fake bomb (at the Governor's request) and in the process they find a real one...and then another! Overall, a decent episode but one that do a lot for me one way or the other. I think the reason for this is that the group concerned in the episode is really not well developed and it all seemed a bit vague.
