enjoyed it, 22 September 2011
Author: (diroffers) from Houston, Texas

"Ha'i'ole" was actually the first episode I have seen of Hawaii Five-O. As a loyal Lost fan, I could not resist seeing the reunion of Terry O'Quinn with Daniel Dae Kim. All in all, it was a pretty good episode. Obviously, there was an ongoing plot that left me feeling a little confused at times, but that is to be expected if you have not been watching. Otherwise, the episode could very well stand on its own. I loved the character Terry O'Quinn played, and at the same time I kept wondering if there were going to be any John Locke-esque quirks. The very idea of it actually made me a giddy with anticipation. I would like to see how it plays out with his character and will probably watch some more episodes, but unfortunately it is not my first choice for that time slot.
