Did You Know?


Robert Loggia becomes the first actor to get featured billing (and second actor overall to appear) in both versions of Hawaii Five-O. In the Original Series ("The Execution File, #11.18), he played a private eye who gunned down pimps as vengeance for enslaving teenagers. In this show, he plays a Navy enlisted man who now works as a tour guide on the USS Missouri. See more »


At the beginning of the episode when Graham is fleeing the cops, you see HPD officers. Since Ford Island is a military installation, it should have been Navy Police. See more »

Ho'apono: An update re-make on a classic episode.
29 August 2013 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

This episode felt familiar within the first fifteen minutes. And cementing it within the following five.

A new take of the classic series' first season episode, 'King of the Hill'. With Adam Beach replacing Yaphett Kotto as the damaged warrior in question.

PTSD replaces flash backs and shell shock suffered by Kotto as a Marine returning to Hawaii on leave. Realized in full force in Mr. Beach's performance of a SEAL who comes back from a jog to find his wife, whose sordid past is discovered after Mr. Beach flees onto the USS Missouri and in a panic, takes hostages.

Considering the source material, Ho'apono pans out and is executed quite well. With veteran actor, Robert Loggia as a tour guide and walking map of the battleship. And plenty for the rest of the team to do while McGarrett saves the day.
