Quotes

Danny 'Danno' Williams: I just got one question: What's a quarterback doing with the number fifty?
Steve McGarrett: No. It's five - oh.
Danny 'Danno' Williams: Yeah.
Steve McGarrett: NO, it's not fifty, it's five-oh. It's what my dad used to call our family because we weren't native Hawaiians. So he nicknamed us "Five-oh's." After the fiftyth state in the union, I don't know. I guess it was his way of making us feel like we belonged, I guess.
Kono Kalakaua: Hmm. I like that. Five-oh.

Still Playing Catch-Up with the Pilot
9 November 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

After a pretty well-put-together pilot, I was pretty angry to see such a mess of an underwritten, poorly paced second episode. I was ready to write the show off completely, but at least this third episode made an effort.

It still has the hindrances of a typical police procedural-- minimum character development, necessary coincidences to streamline plot resolution-- but at least it was an entertaining hour of TV. More so than episode two.

With the exception of Danno, no character is really given much growth, though they put forth a medium amount of effort for Chin (Daniel Dae Kim) this time around. Good, but not great. Bonus points for Max Casella.
