(new) Hawaii Five-0 on CBS

the new Hawaii Five-0 on CBS


The Hallowe’en episode. These can go either way, but this one (co-authored by H50’s writers’ room MVP Zoe Robyn) is pretty good. In the first of two plots, it’s revealed in flashback that, in 1982, Jerry witnessed the aftermath of a murder while at summer camp. No-one believes him, then or now, so he revisits the scene with his fellow campers (including Chloe O’Brian from 24) in order to dig for evidence. There’s a big old spooky house, a thunderstorm, a mysterious recluse, and lots of good dumb fun.

The second plot is a highly effective chiller: Katie, the young daughter of a suburban couple, appears to have predicted, in a drawing, the murder of a woman in her 20s. Katie ascribes the drawing to her imaginary friend Molly. Except Molly isn’t so imaginary. And Tani has it confirmed that the gun she found in Adam’s house was used to shoot Noriko, his sister. This, of course, makes it even more likely that, in due course, we will be presented with “proof” that it wasn’t Adam who pulled the trigger, and the Yakuza’s main man will walk yet again.

A truck driver being chased by the HPD dumps his load of black market sand (it’s a thing) on the road to block the police. However, the body of a man is found in the sand. It looks as if the man was murdered, and then his body was scooped up when the sand was dredged from the ocean. But his feet were detached in the process, and this becomes crucial to identification. “Just so I’m clear”, sniffs Danny, “we’re talking about finding a pair of feet at the bottom of the ocean”? Indeed so, and Steve and Danny set off in a boat with a “foot detector” (Danny again). Feet are found attached to a weight, but they plainly belong to a woman rather than to the deceased, meaning that there are two victims. This plot then develops in an even more unexpected way.

Meantime, somewhat inexplicably, Junior and Jerry are escorting the coffin of a dead soldier, Christopher Kaliko, from an airbase in Delaware back to Oahu, the place of his birth. I say “inexplicably” because Junior didn’t know the soldier and has no idea why he requested that Junior escort his coffin in the event of his death; and Jerry’s involvement is, at least at first, handwaved as being something to do with his desire to pay his respects to a dead friend. And so, for most of the episode, this just looks like another chapter in H50’s ongoing fetishisation of the American armed forces. But Junior finds our why Kaliko asked that he escort his coffin, and Jerry provides further details of why he wanted to help out. It becomes quite moving (in a militaristic sort of way). There’s a further plot involving Duke, looking to be reinstated to HPD after that unfortunate business with the evidence vault and the Taser, but it’s a little bit superfluous in an otherwise satisfying episode. Danny’s ex mother-in-law, an author, also gets a mention, presumably as part of the build-up towards the spectacular piece of stunt-casting which is coming our way in due course.

There’s nothing more exciting that a TV crossover. They often involve characters travelling to a new place and bumping into characters from another TV show. Whilst we know the characters so well, we get to witness their first interactions and see new relationships develop in fresh and exciting ways.

There are a few one off moments of crossover genius that hit our screens every now and again such as 2016’s meeting of New Girl and Brooklyn 99 and there are also many TV shows and their spin-offs that regularly meet up (The CSI’s, Chicago Fire, Med and PD and Buffy and Angel to name a few) but there are some TV shows that have created entire universes.

On Netflix, you have the Marvel universe through The Punisher, Iron Fist, Luke Cage, Daredevil and Jessica Jones (The latter four all coming together in The Defenders).

On The CW you have the Arrow ‘verse. Starting with Arrow in 2012, the universe has since spawned The Flash, Supergirl and Legends of Tomorrow (as well as Black Lighting which has yet to be invited to the crossover party)

But there’s one universe on TV which has been around longer than all the others and has grown in size to now include seven television shows. This giant family of shows hasn’t been given a name but has produced more episodes combined than The Simpsons twice over.

Back in 1995 a show which was to run for 10 seasons first aired. That show was JAG – Judge Advocate General, A drama set in the military law courts. In its eighth year (2003), it launched a spin off show which was to run even longer and become the number one show on TV: NCIS.

Six years after that came NCIS: Los Angeles (2009) then NCIS: New Orleans another five years after that (2014).

But, I hear you cry, that’s only four shows! Well, we’re not quite finished:

Back in 2010, CBS rebooted the classic TV show Hawaii Five-0 and it wasn’t long before Kensi Blye from NCIS: Los Angeles was making an appearance. In season 2 episode 6, Kensi makes a brief appearance to help out Steve McGarrett with a little lip-reading help. This cameo added Hawaii Five-0 to the NCIS universe. Kensi (and the rest of the team) returned later in the season for a two episode crossover.

In 2017, another show crossed over with Hawaii Five-0 when Macgyver and the team travelled to the island to help after an Earthquake, meeting Five-0 characters Chin-Ho Kelly and Kono Kalakaua.

The most recent addition to the universe is Magnum PI. Also set in Hawaii, it has been established that both Magnum PI and Hawaii Five-0 exist in the same universe thanks to the supporting character of Kamekona (Actor Taylor Wily) who has appeared in both shows. A full crossover featuring main characters is only a matter of time.

By my count, that’s seven shows and (as of writing this) 1207 total episodes which makes it the largest and longest running collection of TV shows all living in the same universe. Whilst JAG is no longer on the air, the other six are all still churning out episodes which means there are still plenty of opportunities for more crossovers in the future. We’ve yet to see characters from NCIS fly to Hawaii or Macgyver and Magnum team up. Which characters from the seven shows would you like to see paired together? Let me know in the comments below!
