'Hawaii Five-0' Recap: 'I Helu Pu' (2.16)

February 14th, 2012 3:10am EST
Hawaii Five-O
Hawaii Five-0 does its damnedest to break its formula this week, but that doesn't invigorate the show as much as you might think. Quite the opposite: it actually does a little damage.

As we start, Lori Weston's got a lot of blood on her hands...literally. She walks out of the bathroom and we find out that she's in a hospital, asking after Steve and getting in trouble with Lieutenant Governor Denning for causing an international incident. Denning reminds us that he assigned her to this task force, so perhaps he'll end up reassigning her elsewhere.

Eighteen hours earlier, everything i...

'Hawaii Five-0' Recap: 'Mai Ka Wa Kahiko' (2.15)

February 7th, 2012 3:21am EST
Hawaii Five-O
After some reruns, Hawaii Five-0 finally brings us a new episode. This one involves a law enforcement officer who meets a bloody end in an airplane bathroom. Not the way I'd want to go out.

Upon arriving at the crime scene, Danny realizes that he knew the victim, U.S. Marshal Dave Collins. Chin reports that there are two missing passengers - the felon Dave was transporting, Sal Painter (that's Sons of Anarchy's Theo Rossi) and another man posing as Rick McGuire. Five-0 immediately moves to talk to the key witness against Sal, Holly Malone (White Collar's Gloria Votsis), who tips th...

January 17th, 2012 2:04am EST
Hawaii Five-O
After last week's underwhelming Hawaii Five-0, we finally find out who Shelburne is...and that's pretty much it.

We get a flashback to 1992, where Steve is having a talk with his father (William Sadler, if you forgot). Dad is sending Steve and Mary Ann back to the mainland. "It's not safe for you here anymore," he says. This doesn't go over well with teenage Steve, but present-day Steve totally gets it. And is totally following Joe, until he gets a call about a delivery truck being hit. What got stolen? Something that needed to be snuck past Customs.

The Five-0 team has to go to Sa...

'Hawaii Five-0' Recap: 'Ka Ho'oponopono' (2.13)

January 3rd, 2012 2:07am EST
Hawaii Five-O
This week's Hawaii Five-0 wins for "Most O's in an Episode Title." Unfortunately, that's about all it wins, as it's a rather lackluster return for a generally great show.

Who would hire a professional killer to off a teenage girl? That's the question of the week when Emily Winter is discovered deceased. Her father (Clayton Norcross) has no idea why his daughter would be targeted, but tells Steve that she stole a check from him and wrote it out for five thousand dollars. We discover that this was in order to help her friend Karen (Courtney Coleman), who's being blackmailed over her...

'Hawaii Five-0' Recap: 'Alaheo Pau'ole' (2.12)

Hawaii Five-O
We've come to Hawaii Five-0's fall finale, and it encapsulates the season to date: perhaps not remarkable, but watchable, and leaving us wondering where it's all going.

When a dead body (who later turns out to be quite alive) is found inside an abandoned bunker, it's up to our heroes to close the case and still make it to Chin's wedding. This involves live grenades, a perp dumpster diving, and a run-in with newly-promoted Captain Fryer (Tom Sizemore). The man they found is Fryer's prime suspect in the murder of Bridgett Turner. His wife (that's NYPD Blue's Gail O'Grady) has no idea...

'Hawaii Five-0' Recap: 'Pahele' (2.11)

December 6th, 2011 2:09am EST
Hawaii Five-O
When I was a kid, I never liked school buses. This week's Hawaii Five-0 reminds me of that feeling - although thankfully I was never kidnapped by a drug cartel.

Do you recognize the shooter from the opening teaser? You should. That's Aimee Garcia. She's currently also playing Jamie Batista on Dexter. Here she's working for a drug cartel that would like its cocaine back. Her co-conspirator is played by Rick Gomez, who just appeared on Burn Notice as a kidnap victim. They're just two of the many familiar faces that populate this action-packed episode.

Governor Denning utters the "we don't...

'Hawaii Five-0' Recap: 'Ki'ilua' (2.10)

November 22nd, 2011 2:06am EST
Hawaii Five-O
This week's Hawaii Five-0 feels like a sweeps episode. Our hero held at gunpoint by a former friend and in need of rescue? Definite attention-getter. Thankfully, "Ki'ilua" doesn't stop there, keeping hold of us through the hour.

Before we get to that point, though, we must deal with the murder of investigative reporter Bethany Morris (Kaytlin Borgen), who gets yanked out from under her bed like Maggie Grace in Taken. The obvious question is "What was she working on that got her killed?" Seems Bethany was a whistleblower poking her nose around in corporate business. Nothing you have...

An admission: I love the Fast & Furious films. So give me Hawaii Five-0 taking after the Fast & Furious films, and I'm a happy girl.

The show opens big, with Honolulu Police cruisers trying to catch a speedy flame-red set of wheels and finding a whole host of beautiful cars inside locked shipping containers. One of them has a dead body sans fingerprints in the trunk. This allows us to use Hawaii's car culture as the episode's backdrop. (It also means Lauren German gets primped as if she's trying to channel Michelle Rodriguez - if Rodriguez's Letty had driven a bait car.) There are ...

What do you do when a plane with a corpse in it crashes down? You call the best cops in Hawaii and hope they can make sense of it. Welcome to Hawaii Five-0.

That is, when they're not watching B-movies in Danny's new dive of an apartment. In all honesty, I think Scott Caan and Alex O'Loughlin would do great if Mystery Science Theater 3000 ever came back. Their banter belongs on a Rifftrax.

Back to the case: the corpse belongs to an ICE agent. That's how we meet Jeff Morrison (Masi Oka's former Heroes costar Greg Grunberg), who was the deceased lady's boss. Jeff is taking the situati...

Dear Television: please stop feeling compelled to do 'theme' episodes for holidays.

Rarely are holiday-related episodes that good; most of them don't have much substance to them beyond the gimmick of whatever special date they're centered around. (A rare exception was NBC's Life, which had a second season episode entitled "Black Friday," but that episode was good because it was well-written and acted, not necessarily because of any particular festive addition.) This week's Hawaii Five-0 started by evoking reminders of The Blair Witch Project and didn't really improve from there.

The number-one question I've heard all season when it comes to Hawaii Five-0 has been, "What's happening with Kono?" Well, tonight we finally got that train leaving the station. Would that be enough?

When a beloved college volleyball coach (Joe Toro) gets killed in his own locker room, Five-0 is on the case. The coach was living in the guest house of an affluent couple, Karl and Trisha Joyner (Rob Duval and Meredith Monroe), which gives Danny room to gripe about being underpaid and over-shot at. (This would have been a better cargument if it had happened last season, don't you thin...

Fall TV Progress Report: Grading 10 New And Returning Shows

October 14th, 2011 1:00pm EDT
dennings, behrs
Fall is one of my favorite times of year, and it’s not because of everything from, lattes to cakes, is pumpkin-flavored and stores are stuffed with caramel apples. It’s because there is a fresh, shiny crop of new and returning shows to devour. Most shows are at least three episodes in, so it’s time to grade 10 new and returning shows to gauge their progress in this burgeoning season.

NEW SHOWS

“2 Broke Girls” CBS Mondays 8:30 P.M. EST

“2 Broke Girls” is a snappy, odd couple sitcom about Max (“Thor’s” Kat Dennings), an uber-sarcastic and cynical waitress who takes in Caroline (Bet...

Thanks to this week's Hawaii Five-O, I've found another reason to dislike camping: you just might find a corpse in the tent. Not cool, show. Not cool at all.

Steve and Commander White (Terry O'Quinn) - who's put in for a transfer to Pearl Harbor - have their bonding session broken up by this development - the body is that of a SEAL named Clay Garcia. Max tells Steve that the cause of death was a self-inflicted gunshot wound, but White and Garcia's wife Marissa (Sarah Roemer) aren't so sure. Looking over the evidence again (after Steve needles him into doing so), Max declares that G...

Hawaii Five-O at least made me smarter this week; I had no idea there was a paddleboard world championship, but I Googled it, and yes, it exists. If you're Jenn Hassley (Hayley Chase), you can also be kidnapped from it.

Shortly thereafter, Steve is introduced to Homeland Security agent Lori Weston (Lauren German), whom the new Governor assigns to Five-O after not enjoying the events of the season premiere. Everyone's thrown by the development, but they put that aside to work on Jenn's abduction, as professionals would do. (It's a pet peeve of mine when shows have characters discussing...
