Solid and exciting.
9 October 2009 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

Apparently, the studly and tough Steve McGarrett is unstoppable! In the opening scene, he's shot three times at relatively close range with a .45--and yet he survives! What a man--and I don't think it's a spoiler to say that he recovers since the show went on for 12 seasons and this is only the 10th of something like a bazillion episodes.

So, now it's up to the #2 man at Five-O, Danny Williams, to investigate the crime. This is a nice change, as apart from one episode up until this one ("They Painted Daisies on His Coffin"), Danno has gotten little to do and the show was all Steve McGarrett--with McGarrett going under cover, beating up hoods and running pretty much everything. To show that he's tough and means business, Danny takes to arresting people with no charges and roughing them up a bit in the process--I guess the Bill of Rights didn't apply to Hawaii! Not to be outdone, Chin Ho also acts tough and takes on a gang of not particularly tough looking hotrod drivers.

I'd say more about the plot, but frankly I don't want to spoil it. The bottom line is that there is a guy with a 15 year-old grudge and Steve is only the first target of his vendetta! Overall, well done and exciting--well worth seeing.

By the way, in a tiny mistake, Danny talks with the gunman's wife. He tells her that McGarrett has been shot but never mentions a second victim. In the next scene, the lady makes mention of this second shooting--though she was never told about it. Perhaps she had ESP.
