Danny can't even get his busted knee properly treated after Steve's last stunts, being dragged along to chase violent repeat-offender Walton Dawkins, who escaped violently after watching a TV program about 'hoale' (mainlander) Dana Thorpe winning a Hawaiian holiday and $1,000,000. Steve's super-bratty sister Mary Ann has to wait, locked in his office with 'babysitters'. Instead of Dana, Dawkins kidnaps her boyfriend Craig Ellers, which turns out to be the fake identity of ex-con Paul Stark. The chase involves more violent crime. Written by KGF Vissers

Questions Abound
9 November 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Some questions: first off, why does the Five-O get their own logo in this episode? They started calling themselves the Five-O as a joke, starting in the last episode. Now it's painted on the floor of their HQ. Nice use of tax dollars.

Second, how can a waitress at a café in Hawaii afford a brand new 2010 Chevrolet Malibu? Maybe I should move to Hawaii.

Third, why does the bad guy keep shooting hostages, even after the knows the cops are after him? Did he not want to leave a witness, even though he knew he was already being chased? Plus he fires off a gun in the middle of a crowded bank, when he's already trying to keep a low profile. Worst. Bank robber. Ever.

Other than that, this episode holds together better than any other episode since the pilot. The action was fun, 3 out of the 4 leads get some character development this time around, and the helicopter chase wasn't completely ridiculous (except for the awful CGI).

I dug the bit with the sister. I didn't dig the bit where McGarrett plays ten points of prison yard basketball but somehow fails to break a sweat. Still, this is better than any show with "CSI" in the title. 8/10.
