Storyline

When the first mate of a cargo ship abruptly hijacks his own vessel, leading to the murder of a crew member and several woundings, McGarrett begins to suspect the oily shipping-company boss of possibly ordering the hijacking and apparent subsequent scuttling of the ship to keep its real cargo -- intercontinental ballistic missiles he is selling to the highest bidder -- secret.

Not perfect, but very good.
31 August 2012 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

There is one problem with "You Don't See Many Pirates These Days"--the state police have absolutely no jurisdiction to investigate this sort of case nor would they have any idea HOW to. You need to forget this--put it out of your head--and you can enjoy this show.

It begins with a motley group of guys coming aboard a ship whose crew is mostly on shore leave. The group hijacks the boat, kills one of the crew members and takes the other three into custody. Now this is just a simple cargo ship with apparently nothing of great value aboard--so what gives? Well, Jonathan Kay from the State Department calls McGarrett and asks Five-O to investigate this along with the Coast Guard--but he also refuses to explain exactly WHY this is such an important matter. How can Five-O investigate a crime like this and how can this STILL be a very interesting episode? Tune in and see. There are a good number of twists and turns but more importantly, after nine full seasons, there isn't a lot that is truly original--this is an original plot--and I liked that!
