(new) Hawaii Five-0 on CBS

the new Hawaii Five-0 on CBS

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!

9.13 – Ke iho mai nei ko luna

Adam, Junior and Tani travel to the bottom of the Pacific Ocean when a murder takes place in a remote underwater lab, and the killer may still be on board, on HAWAII FIVE-0, Friday, Jan. 18 (9:00-10:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network.

CBS translated Ke iho mai nei ko luna to Those Above Are Descending

This will be a rather short review, with almost no pictures. But it will give you a place to talk about it.

Let me tell you something about my household. Imagine a friend of mine would come by, say around breakfast time. Here is how it would go at my place. My friend and my daughter would share what’s already on the table, and I would go back into the kitchen and make more pancakes. Or whatever else my friend would want for breakfast.

Let’s envision this scene….

“Hey, Steve, come on in. Did you have breakfast?”

“Nah, I’m good. Where’s Gracie?”

“At the table. You sure you don’t want pancakes. The griddle is hot.”

“Hey, Grace. Man, those do look good, Danny. Maybe I will take a couple.”

“Want some bacon? It’s frying right now.”

“Yeah, sure. Thanks.”

Of course that is just me. Oh wait, I am sure that, or a variation of it, is what would happen in every normal person’s household. But we all know that Dannoying is not a normal person. He is one to be rude, mean and insulting toward his so called best friend. So much so, that even his own daughter is annoyed by him.

But enough of that cretin, let’s have a look at the rest of the episode. Oh, but wait. He has an equally scintillating scene while they were on the boat near the end of the show.


I really don’t have too much to say. The episode was filled with lies, theft, murder, which is par for the course, but for some reason I had trouble following all that was happening underwater.

I too must confess it wasn’t really that interesting what happened below. The whole plot was again very predictable, and really not worth mentioning.

The minute Junior, Adam and Tani figured out their air supply was disappearing, they realized why the one woman asked for an oxygen tank.

I had a really good laugh about that. Give that hyperventilating woman a paperback, not an oxygen tank. A blind person could see that she was the one.

Too late… she realized they figured her out.

She locks them inside the chamber, steals the rest of the oxygen tanks, steals their Little Yellow Submarine and races to the surface while giving herself the bends.

You would think she knew how to get safely to the surface. Guess she was in a hurry. 😉vlcsnap-2019-01-23-20h56m36s683

On the surface, Steve and Danny learn their friends are incommunicado, so they race to the dive site and somehow make it before the Coast Guard which was already nearby. I KNOW that ship goes faster than that!

LOL, yeah, that was kinda odd.

When Steve learns his friends and the other people down there have only 6 minutes of air left, he launches into SEAL mode and figures out how much air each person will have if they share the two tanks, he and Danny have on board their boat. Amid arguing, he explains the only way to get the tanks down is to free dive them with the weight of the tanks carrying him down 127 meters. I admit, Danny has valid arguments in that Steve will need some of the air in the tank and that Steve will have difficulty getting back to the surface without air.

OK, let’s talk a moment about this part of the show. I don’t understand why they didn’t have the facility in a depth of, say 60 to 80 meters? That would have made everything a lot more believable. On the other hand, even the 127 meters are doable under special circumstances. The world record is 253 meters. So, although a bit far out there, it was all in the realm of possibility. Not likely to succeed, but possible. The science behind it was right. And that is enough for me.

But Steve knows his limits, and something tells me he has done a similar maneuver in the past. So, he asks Danny for help with the tanks while he gets his flippers on… never knew you wear shoes with flippers, but his Chucks looked cute. 🙂 He cuts off Danny’s last argument, or good luck speech or whatever and with his lungs full of air, he descends. I loved when he takes in the air then grabs the tanks and follows them down.

Best scenes of the entire episode. I just loved it.

When Steve reached the inside tank, I must say he looked a bit air-starved. What great acting on Alex’s part throughout all of these water and rescue scenes. He dropped off the tanks and knew he needed to get out of there because one more person on board would be less air for all. Being so depleted of air, I’m not sure how Junior and Tani dragged those tanks to where the others were waiting, but I assume, since they all made it out alive, that they managed to do so. And we will assume that the Coast Guard finally got there in their ten-minute window.

Loved when Steve broke the surface and Danny hauled him in, first with the life preserver and then dragging him onto the boat. Again, Alex played his part so well being depleted of oxygen. His inability to catch a breath to be able to talk and also what appeared to be a killer headache were played out amazingly. I would guess there was an oxygen tank in his future, too, although they never choose to show those scenes.

Despite to have to suspend believe for at least a little bit, way less than on other occasions on this show, I absolutely loved these scenes. All the rest was just meh, in my eyes. But thanks to Steve diving and saving the day the show makes it into ok/good category.



Everyone came home safe and our last scene is Junior making nice with his dad. I’m glad they are making strides to come back to each other, but you know, I really don’t need to see a lot of it. It would be nice for Dad to meet Steve though. That could be a cool scene.

I really don’t need that much background on the supporting cast. I really like Junior, but I don’t need any more of his family. And I am already totally fed up with Tani and her brother.

No new ep this week and they look to be hit or miss for the next few weeks. But I’ll take what I can get.

So, how did you like this episode?

Grande dame Joan Collins is set to pop up on CBS’ Hawaii Five-0, where she will echo her disapproval of one lawman while expressing her fondness for another.

TVLine has confirmed that the Dynasty icon will guest-star as the mother of Claire van der Boom’s Rachel, and thus Danny’s ex-mother-in-law who has never liked him.

Appearing in the 18th episode of Season 9, Mama Hollander will come to town on a book tour, where she will require Danny and Steve’s assistance as her last-minute security team. She, as many do, will take an immediate liking to her son-in-law’s better half — meaning, McGarrett.

Collins tweeted about the guest spot over the long weekend:

Loved doing Hawaii 5-0 with a wonderful cast and crew! @HawaiiFive0CBS#HawaiiFive0pic.twitter.com/eniUbc4f5r

— Joan Collins (@Joancollinsdbe) January 18, 2019

Collins’ more recent TV credits include American Horror Story: Apocalypse and The Royals.

Hawaii Five-0 continues Season 9 on Friday, Feb. 1, with Episode 14.

There’s a heatwave on Oahu, and quite a lot going on. A woman under arrest for assault is being transported in a police car. She’s close to fainting because of the temperature, but when let out of the car for some fresh air she shoots her police escorts with startling efficiency. This surprises everyone, because she’d never been in trouble before; but some rudimentary investigation confirms that she’s been using a false identity, for reasons not unconnected to the bag stuffed with stolen cash money she’s trying to recover.

Tani and Junior respond to a call about a home invasion, which turns out to be half-a-dozen kids seeking refuge from the heat in a swimming pool. Then their car is stolen. Jerry is present when, at a convenience store, a desperate shopper tries to steal the last two bags of ice from a fellow customer. This, it turns out, is to help his pregnant wife. On the subject of thieves, Kamekona puts up prices at his shaved ice stand in order to maximise profits. And Grover, despite the heat, insists on playing a round of golf, to the point where his caddy actually collapses. I’m not sure I found this as funny as the show would have liked me to.

It’s the sort of mini-stories episode that 9-1-1 does so well. TV Tapas, if you will. However, there’s very little inspiration on show here. I quite liked Tani and Junior, in their car, channelling Steve and Danny, but that apart this was an episode to forget.
