Did You Know?


Streets identified on the show do not match the visual of the car driving. Initial opening scene showed Chin Ho and Kono driving on Valkenburgh Street (near Pearl Harbor) which looks nothing like the area they were driving on. Keawe Street listed on the GPS unit is between Aloha Tower and Ala Moana, no where near Makalapa Dr where the police radio said the pursuit was. The highway they were driving on isn't in between either. See more »


Steve McGarrett: What about Han Chi? Where does he fit into all of this?
Nicole Duncan: Who?
Danny 'Danno' Williams: "Who"? What are you, an owl? Han Chi, the guy you paid to bring the head of your ex-husband to your father.
Nicole Duncan: I don't know. Just some day laborer Spenser hired. He used to cut his lawn.
Steve McGarrett: You just figured you'd use him again.
Nicole Duncan: Spenser wanted somebody who didn't ask any questions. And this guy needed the work. Spenser rented him a car, plugged the address into the GPS. All he had to do was drop off the box.
Danny 'Danno' Williams: Right. When he didn't, Spenser ...

Not a bad show
10 March 2011 | by (Winnipeg) – See all my reviews

Not a bad episode, but not great a episode either. Five-o has the usual car chase and a severed head for the macho action appeal. When the team gets together the episode becomes a version of Hawaii Five of C S I. ch I like the Five O C S I mix. However, the cop show has the, usually, plot twist with the usual frame on the obvious suspect. (What I find interesting is I once read that in most police work the obvious suspect is usually the guilty person, but sometimes the police can be very wrong with wrongful convictions.) There is a human element in the story, which shows how cops use their personal judgment with tough decisions. (I will what Steve did.) The shows ending is true C S I fashion where the Dan and Steve catch a very evil gal who has no remorse for what she did. The ending is just like one many of the C S I ending. I like the ending for it show how evil some people are. If you like C S I you will like this episode of Five O. I give the show a 6 or 7 out of ten.
