Did You Know?


"In Memorium James MacArthur 1937-2010 the Original 'Danno'", appeared just before the start of the episode. MacArthur had passed away just a few days before this episode was originally broadcast. 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 »


Laura Hills: Now ususally SWAT would handle something like this, but the Governor seems to think with your background as a SEAL, you'd be better equiped to handle this situation.
Danny 'Danno' Williams: Him? And me - I'm here for what? The entertainment or what?
Steve McGarrett: Well, you can tell SWAT to sit tight. I'm going in alone.

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.
