'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' Producer Apologizes For Offending World War II Veterans

December 14th, 2011 10:36pm EST
Hawaii Five-O
TV bosses behind hit show Hawaii Five-O have apologized to American World War II veterans for filming an upcoming episode during their Pearl Harbor anniversary tribute last week.

Dozens of Pearl Harbor survivors and military officials congregated at the National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific in Honolulu last week to remember the lives lost during the Japanese attack on the Hawaiian naval base in 1941.

However, the group became enraged when a Hawaii Five-0 film crew neglected to alter its shooting schedule out of respect for the deceased and instead forged ahead with filming a scene in ...

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

December 13th, 2011 2:08am EST
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...

'Hawaii Five-0' Recap: 'Ike Maka' (2.09)

November 15th, 2011 2:08am EST
Hawaii Five-O
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 ...

'Hawaii Five-0' Cast Join Pearl Harbor Project

November 14th, 2011 8:46am EST
Hawaii Five-O
The stars of TV show Hawaii Five-0 have volunteered for a community project at Pearl Harbor in support of U.S. veterans.

The actors, including Alex O'Loughlin, Scott Caan, Daniel Dae Kim and Masi Oka, will be among a group of volunteers who will help plant a garden at the Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam in Hawaii on Monday.

The American Heart Association Teaching Garden is designed to educate children about the importance of healthy habits and is part of Michelle Obama's Joining Forces initiative to support U.S. veterans through community service.

'Hawaii Five-0' Recap: 'Lapa'au' (2.08)

November 8th, 2011 2:06am EST
Hawaii Five-O
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...

'Hawaii Five-0' Recap: 'Ka Iwi Kapu' (2.07)

November 1st, 2011 2:01am EDT
Hawaii Five-O
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.

'Supernatural' Recap: War of Witches Scorned

October 23rd, 2011 8:00am EDT
marsters and carpenter
Last week’s episode left me unfulfilled as Dean hadn't shared his secret, and instead chose to try to bury his head in the sand and his liver in alcohol. Luckily, for my sanity, “Shut Up, Dr. Phil” was lighthearted and unexpectedly charming, thanks sci-fi staples and “Angel” alums James Marsters (“Hawaii Five-0”) and Charisma Carpenter (“Burn Notice,” “Buffy The Vampire Slayer”).

The murder of Wendy Goodson, real estate agent, opened the episode. She reassured her client that selling the family home would punish her husband for his infidelities. For Wendy, who had indiscretions of he...

'Hawaii Five-0' Recap: 'Ma'ema'e' (2.05)

October 18th, 2011 2:03am EDT
Hawaii Five-O
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.

“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...

Hawaii Five-O
Ladies and gentlemen, it's "name that guest star" week on Hawaii Five-O. Did you spot all the familiar faces? Unfortunately, they don't make up for the underlying flaws that are appearing to be common to this season.

A faux-Jaws opening leads us to discovering the hand of Blake Spencer, a salvage diver. (If you want to see my reaction to the resulting scene in Max's office, just watch Steve's face.) Into The Blue this is not (except for the mutual presence of Scott Caan).

Steve and Danny are soon learning about a mysterious next gig that may be the reason Blake ended up in pieces....

Music Review: 'Hawaii Five-O' Soundtrack

October 10th, 2011 2:15pm EDT
Hawaii Five-O
TV soundtracks can be ways to discover new music, or just for a studio to cash in on a hot property. CBS Music's Hawaii Five-O: Original Songs From The Television Series is a bit of both.

It wouldn't be the first time that a soundtrack has come out for sheer merchandising purposes. There are a lot of those, where songs clearly end up in a TV show just to push a single or so that a CD can be made up later. Heck, even some of the soundtracks that come out after a season aren't very good.

Hawaii Five-O's disc curiously takes the opposite tack from most soundtracks: the CD is billed on Amaz...

'Hawaii Five-O' Review: 'Kame'e' (2.03)

October 4th, 2011 2:09am EDT
Hawaii Five-O
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
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...

TV on DVD Roundup: 'Big Bang,' 'Castle,' 'H5O' and More Recent Releases

Desperate Housewives
With the new fall season starting in September, a lot of TV on DVD titles have turned out over the last few months to help fans catch up with favorite shows. I do mean a lot. So many that it'd be a deluge of reviews if we were to write them all up individually. To keep from drowning you in print, but still keep you up to date, here's a quick look at many of the new titles that have arrived recently.

Fall Review: 'Unforgettable'

September 21st, 2011 2:08am EDT
Unforgettable
Watching CBS' new series Unforgettable gave me a hint of deja vu.

The procedural reunites former Without A Trace star Poppy Montgomery with that show's network and its executive producer, Ed Redlich. Montgomery, who's become a redhead but still looks better than most of us, stars as former Syracuse cop Carrie Wells. Carrie has the gift (or the curse) of remembering almost everything - except for the murder of her sister.

It sounds familiar, doesn't it? A main character with a tragic past, not to mention that she used to be sleeping with her new partner - former Nip/Tuck lead Dylan Walsh...

'Hawaii Five-O' 2.01 'Ha'i'ole' Review

September 20th, 2011 2:05am EDT
Hawaii Five-O
I have to admit that I didn't know what to expect from the season premiere of Hawaii Five-O. I was merely crossing my fingers and hoping it improved from its nearly shark-jumping first-season finale. Thankfully, that will just be a bad memory, because the show has come back in fine if not excellent form.

Steve's in prison awaiting trial for the murder of Governor Jameson. Danny's visiting him just to introduce his former SEAL instructor, Lieutenant Commander Joe White (Terry O'Quinn of Lost and, to me, the dad from The Cutting Edge), who wants to lend him a hand. Chin Ho, now a lieuten...

For someone as obsessed with television as I am, the prospect of four months without new episodes of my shows is a maddening one. Thankfully, mid-July is finally upon us, and I can take comfort in the knowledge that most television shows have began production for the 2011-2012 season. To honor this momentous occasion, I will be detailing my wishes upcoming seasons of my beloved shows.

Whether you’re are a republican, a democrat or an independent, there is no denying that President Barack Obama, father to Malia, 12, and Sasha, 10, is the dapperest of dads.

'Hawaii Five-O' 1.24 'Oia'i'o' Review: 'Did We Just Jump The Shark?'

May 17th, 2011 8:40am EDT
Hawaii Five-O
As a regular viewer of the original Hawaii Five-O, I was among those who dreaded a remake, but the majority of these twenty-four episodes made me eat my words. Unfortunately, the season finale of the new version is an unpleasant surprise: everything that this show has previously proven itself not to be.

The episode starts with two of our heroes getting what they thought they wanted: Danny has gotten cozy with ex-wife Rachel, and Chin Ho gets an offer to return to the Honolulu PD. There's got to be a catch, right? Well, there's a big one: the money stolen from the asset forfeiture...

'Hawaii Five-O' 1.23 'Ua Hiki Mai Kapalena Pau' Review

May 10th, 2011 8:02am EDT
Hawaii Five-O
This week's Hawaii Five-O is a perfect episode of how my brain gets ahead of my viewing experience. Common sense tells me that despite being exposed to sarin, Danny isn't going anywhere, because Scott Caan is a regular with a contract. This normally would ruin an episode for me, but the H5O team seems to anticipate that criticism and turns in an episode that is much less about putting him in peril and more about the case that leads our heroes to unravel.

We open hot, with Five-O trying to bust Wo Fat at a local house and ending up chasing Sang Min (Will Yun Lee, dressed ridiculou...

May 3rd, 2011 2:00am EDT
Hawaii Five-O
If anyone else started humming "Jessie's Girl" during the beginning of tonight's Hawaii Five-O, you're forgiven. Unfortunately, Rick Springfield isn't with us long: he's a sleazy fashion photographer who gets barbecued in his own trailer. Pretty short for a guest appearance that CBS thought highly enough of to promote in their episode listing! (And before episode's end, my local CBS affiliate would also run a spot for the late local news about his DUI arrest. You can't make this stuff up.)

As is normal with a premise like this - which I know I've seen used for at least one Law & Or...
