No felonies were committed, so it's Five-O to the rescue!
1 December 2012 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

This is a particularly weak episode. Most of it is because it involves a case that a unit like Five-O should never be involved with since no felony was committed...NONE! And, without a serious crime, what's the point of the episode?! The show begins with a cranky rich dad (James Sikking) arguing with his teenage daughter about her seeing some guy. He demands she leave him and she promised she would--but she hasn't. So, he's going to send her off to boarding school. In desperation, she runs away to be with her honey-bunny and the father then reports that she's been kidnapped--though there really isn't any evidence that this has occurred. In fact, McGarrett blows up at the Governor for making Five-O get involved in some family matter--which is exactly what it turns out to be! A bunch more happens though none of it changes the basic equation and in the end, everyone goes home and the episode kind of fizzles. None one of the finest hours for the series and not a particularly compelling case.
