Storyline

The series pilot, which originally aired as a two-hour TV movie, is re-edited as a two-part episode of the series. In the opening installment, a U.S. intelligent agent, a friend of McGarrett's, turns up dead on a Honolulu beach. McGarrett, knowing the man didn't swim, decides to investigate the death as a homicide. Five-O gets no cooperation from the Feds, making McGarrett suspicious. His probe eventually leads to a mysterious ship, which is in dock for repairs. Going undercover as a member of a repair crew, McGarrett discovers a futuristic-looking chamber. Written by Bill Koenig

Outstanding Beginning
5 July 2009 | by See all my reviews

Wow, I was floored by this episode. Just started watching this series (my father watched it when I was a kid, but I wasn't interested in adult shows), and it's terrific so far. My expectations were for shallow plots and acting, and I got just the opposite.

This episode is a tremendous stage-setter for the series. You get the enough background on McGarrett to draw you in, and you sense the deeper person within despite the tough and commanding exterior. This pilot two-part episode seemed more like a movie than a TV show. Very, very well done.

It was interesting to see that Jim Macarthur was not in this episode. Too bad for the guy he replaced, whose career fizzled. Macarthur had quite a run on 5-0 and was important to its success.
