Hawaii Five-0

Ka Pohaku Kihi Pa’a” — When Five-0’s sketchy confidential informant is accused of murder, McGarrett asks his old friend Odell Martin to defend him, on HAWAII FIVE-0, Friday, Feb. 26 (9:00-10:00 PM, ET/PT), on the CBS Television Network.

This week’s Hawaii Five-0 brings back two fan favorites for an odd, yet very entertaining hour of television. Trial antics, unlikely alliances, and if that’s not enough to keep you watching, the hour also had Ziggy Marley. Let’s recap.

McGarrett asks his barber Odell Martin (guest star Michael Imperioli) to defend Sang Men. It’s an absolutely ludicrous idea, but desperate times call for desperate measures. Sang Men was trying to help 5-0 nab a human trafficker they couldn’t identify. He was supposed to set up a meeting with the partner he first worked with, but by the time Men showed up to the meet, his contact was dead. Immediately afterward the police showed up, and without any corroborating witnesses, it looks like Men is going down for this.

As creepy as Sang Men is, Odell agrees to take the case. Odell enlists the help of Bones (guest star Ziggy Marley), a friend of his who is not in the country legally and who knows a bit about the human trafficking going on on the island.

At the same time Max finds the body of a woman killed in the last 72 hours who was shot with the same gun that Sang Men is being framed with. That makes 5-0 and Odell’s .job that much harder. Bones’s contact gives them the name of a trafficker named Graham Clark. He is confirmed to be the one framing Sang Men, but they need more evidence. In the meantime Odell holds a Mock Trial to prepare Sang Men’s defense. It starts out comically, but it is quickly apparent that their trial is going to be an uphill battle. It’s so stressful that Odell has trouble walking into the courtroom. One of the reasons Odell never wanted to go back to practicing law was that he didn’t want to be reminded of bad memories with his own attorney father. McGarrett asks Odell to do what he has to do to set an innocent man free.

5-0 does their best on the stand to help Sang Men, but there’s little they can do without irrefutable proof that he didn’t do it. They have no choice but to put Sang Men on the stand, which they originally wanted to avoid at all costs because it makes him vulnerable to the prosecution. Odell is lost about what to do, until he notices that Sang Men can’t see well. Suddenly he has found his golden goose.

Through a series of questions to 5-0 Odell is able to prove that since Sang Men’s vision is so impaired, he could not have possibly committed the murder he is accused of since forensics showed that the victim was shot from a distance. Odell wins the case and Sang Men is set free. Proving that the 5-0 Ohana is pretty extensive and welcoming nowadays.

What did you think about this week’s plethora of guest stars?

Wo Fat triumphs (for a while) over McGarrett in Nine Dragons

Wo Fat triumphs (for a while) over McGarrett in Nine Dragons

This year marks the 40th anniversary of one of the best episodes of the original Hawaii Five-O series, the two-hour Nine Dragons.

The first episode of the 1976-77 season was one of the best encounters between the original Steve McGarrett (Jack Lord) and the original Wo Fat (Khigh Dhiegh).

The episode also featured the most James Bond-like plot of the original 1968-80 series. Wo Fat intends to lead a coup of China, then launch a preemptive nuclear attack on the United States.

To ensure no other nations retaliate, Wo Fat abducts McGarrett. The lawman, under torture, is recorded as saying the U.S. was responsible for the deaths of Chinese leadership (that Wo Fat plans to accomplish). The film will be broadcast as the attack against the U.S. takes place, causing other countries to not attack China.

All of this, of course, is rather fantastic. Nevertheless, it features one of the best performances by Khigh Diegh as Wo Fat. The actor (1910-1991) essentially gets a chance to meld his two best-known characters: Wo Fat and the Chinese brain washing expert in the 1962 version of The Manchurian Candidate.

What’s more, Jack Lord’s McGarrett, for once in the series, is utterly defeated, at least for a time. Despite McGarrett’s resistance, he eventually gives in. McGarrett, naturally, rallies and escapes. McGarrett has no memory of the defeat until he gets a chance to view the film shortly before Wo Fat intends to use it.

Nine Dragons included contributions from one of Five-O’s best writers (Jerome Coopersmith, his next-to-last script) and directors (Michael O’Herlihy, his final effort for the series). Above all, it features one of the best scores for the show by Morton Stevens, who composed the classic Five-O theme.

Finally, the episode includes on-location filming in Hong Kong, a first for the show. To defray the cost, CBS struck a deal with Air Siam (everybody in the epiosde who takes a flight flies on Air Siam).

Five-O would not have such on-location filming until the end of the 11th season, where a two-hour episode was filmed in Singapore (The Year of the Horse), that included one-time 007 George Lazenby.

McGarrett was forced into asking for a favor on tonight’s all new episode of “Hawaii 5-0” when an informant of his had been accused of murdering the man he was supposed to be gathering intel on.

However, that favor had actually been for the accused. Sang Min had gotten released from prison ten days ago as part of a top secret op. He was supposed to infiltrate the current human trafficking game on the island and reacquaint himself with one of the leaders running it. A man named James Lam. Who had initially got his own unsavory start after Sang had given him his first job in the business.

Only this op of theirs went south when James had soon showed up dead and it had been Sang caught standing over his body, holding a gun. And, well, that had looked pretty damming. So following that, no one was willing to listen to much less believe Sang’s story about coming up on the scene shortly after James had died.

And that’s why McGarrett was forced to call in a favor. McGarrett and his people were the only one that truly seemed to buy the fact Sang was innocent and so they needed someone to defend Sang Min because even the public defender wanted to throw Sang to the wolves. Though, there ended up being only one lawyer that McGarrett could personally think of. And the man hasn’t study law since passing the bar years ago.

But for McGarrett, Odell Martin was willing to get his feet wet again. Thus he took Sang’s case and was then stuck trying to find a way to prove Sang’s innocence because it wasn’t looking good. Sang had technically been a human trafficker himself and he had nearly killed the very same people that believed he was innocent.

So the one thing that Odell wanted more than anything was to keep Sang from testifying. Yet Sang had been very firm when he demanded otherwise. He said it was his right to speak towards his own defense and therefore Odell simply had to teach him how to curb what he says rather than just announcing things.

Like how he knew Kono was with the police when he first met her, but had demanded she stripped down mainly because he wanted to see her naked and not because he was looking for a wire.

And so it was things like that Odell had to worry about. He knew that Sang was already unlikable however Sang somehow tended to make things worse for himself by being too cavalier. Which was just another thing that Odell had to combat.

For instance, it was bad enough that Sang occasionally went off at the mouth but one of the things they learned from mock trial was that Sang didn’t actually mourn James. And it could be said that he had more reason than anyone else to want James dead seeing as James had managed to stay out of prison while he had gotten locked up. So if Sang couldn’t even bother to pretend he missed James in front of people that believed he were innocent, what was going to happen at trial?

Therefore, proving Sang’s innocence was an uphill battle and Odell began to fall apart the closer they got to trial.

Which was yet another thing against them. The trial had gotten pushed up because the judge on the case had judged Sang once before. And that meant Odell barely had days to create a defense with what was essential nothing, but he had also to contend with a judge that was biased against Sang.

So the first few hours of trial were rocky at best and it had looked like Odell wasn’t up to the task. But, eventually Odell noticed something about his client that helped towards the man’s defense. He caught Sang narrowing his eyes as if he needed help seeing what was in front of him. And that’s when Odell got the bright idea to pull Sang’s medical records.

And apparently Sang was nearsighted. He couldn’t see long distance mush less be able to shoot long distance and the Medical Examiner had even confirmed that James Lam had been killed from sixty feet away. So using Kono’s past experience as a sharp shooter as well Sang’s medical records from prison – Odell was able to prove that Sang couldn’t have made a shot like that in his dreams.

Hence the jury ended up voting to acquit Sang because it turns out he had been innocent of the crime. And as for Odell, he finally won his first case and later he got to cut off all of Sang’s hair as part of an earlier agreement between the two men.

THE END!

Here’s some scoop on Hawaii Five-0 from Entertainment Weekly’s Natalie Abrams’ The Spoiler Room column, which was posted on 2/19/16.

 

Hit me with some Hawaii Five-0 scoop. — Anthony
I can exclusively reveal that Martin Starr will be returning as Adam Charles, a.k.a. computer hacker Toast. In an episode slated for late in the season, Five-0 finds Toast flying first class dressed to the nines — gold smartwatch, cashmere hoodie, cover of a magazine — after creating one of the fastest-grossing mobile video games of all time. He’s picking up a swimsuit model to have chicken and waffles in L.A., until McGarrett and Danno pull him off the plane. They need his help with a case tracking down a cyber-stalker who kidnapped a college student.
