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: Yeah. I bought - why?
Danny 'Danno' Williams: What are you a schmuck? What's the matter with you? You don't order anything off the internet.
Steve McGarrett: Danny, it's the 21st century.
Danny 'Danno' Williams: Says the guy with no master cylinder.
Steve McGarrett: All right, you got a point.

Head in the Box-No Class or Classic Here ***
18 January 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A high speed chase leads to a head in the box and the driver quite dead.

Time for Steve and Danno to investigate. Guess what? The head belongs to a physics teacher who was dying of cancer nonetheless. We meet quite a conniving wife who fakes her own kidnapping. Imagine, she was having an affair and couldn't wait for her husband to depart, so they killed him.

Along the way, we see compassion by Steve for the little boy left fatherless by the driver who had been hired to deliver the box. Evidently, he didn't know what was going on. Steve shows the necessary compassion and despite Danny's misgivings, Sten is shown to be correct.
