Trivia

The title of this episode (which must have greatly upset CBS censors) comes from an expression Japanese fighter pilots shouted as they led the charge on Pearl Harbor in 1941. Variants on the phrase included "To hell with Roosevelt!" and "To hell with Roy Acuff!". See more »

Goofs

Yoshio Nagata is planning to blow up the fuel storage tanks at Pearl Harbor, yet when he is on top of the fuel tank with his daughter, the pineapple water tower at the Dole Cannery (which is in downtown Honolulu) can be seen clearly. This tower cannot be seen from Pearl Harbor. See more »

I love Five-O but man this episode sucked!!!
30 October 2010 | by (Brooklyn, NY, USA) – See all my reviews

This episode was wayyy hard to watch. The only part of this episode that peaked interest in me was the opening scenes which led to clues the killer was a ninja, since this episode was made way before the 80's ninja craze. (I love Ninja movies by the way) Other than that, the events which led to the plot were vague, the teleplay was sloppy despite Nagata's references to literature and haiku's (since he was Japanese after all). I know there weren't a whole lot of well known Asian actors back then (damn there's not many today either), but having white people playing Japanese or Asian folks with bad make up jobs and a sprayed on tan was laughable. Lenard's portrayal of Nagata didn't come off as crazy. He just seemed ridiculous. There was, however, a cool sword vs. sai demo in the early part of the show that was well played between a Caucasion swordsman and a an Asian instructor (why couldn't they get him to play the lead villain? Did he seem too Asian?) and for that I gave this 1 star episode an extra star to make it a two.
