(new) Hawaii Five-0 on CBS

the new Hawaii Five-0 on CBS


9.07 – Pua a’e la ka uwahi o ka moe

McGarrett investigates a cold case from the 1940s, one that his grandfather and the famous Honolulu detective Chang Apana worked on, and he tries to deduce how the case could have been solved. Also, McGarrett and Danny get ready for the opening of their restaurant, on the milestone 200th episode of HAWAII FIVE-0, Friday, Nov. 9 (9:00-10:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network. The FIVE-0 cast appears as characters from the 1940s.

CBS translated Pua a’e la ka uwahi o ka moe to The Smoke Seen in the Dream Now Rises

First of all, let me say that 200 episodes is a great achievement. Not that many shows get to that number.

No matter what one thinks of Hawaii Five-0, the show has earned respect for running such a long time. And to be honest, they delivered some of the best episodes on TV. Yes, they also delivered some of the worst, but that is to be expected with such a number of shows. Not every single one can be great art. And by the way, a TV show very seldom is great art.

This show’s goal has never been to be an Emmy-worthy show; its goal clearly is and always was to simply entertain. And I think they did a great job doing just that.

That said, let’s take a look at the 200th episode.

I really hoped I would find the time to do a full review, but I just don’t have the time for it at the moment. Hopefully I will come back to it at a later point.

So, I will at least talk about the most important things of this episode, and give you guys a place to discuss it.

Before I start, a big Thank You to LeiCa for her amazing work this week. You can do a Movie-Quote-One whenever you want to. Thank you for the great pictures and the great quotes. I knew most of them, but placing them with the film is a very different story. And thanks to Kimphin for pointing it all out for us. Thank you for taking the time to do such an amazing comment.

And, LeiCa, feel free to make a simple picture post with your amazing SteveScreenShots. The floor is yours. 🙂

OK, now on to the episode. 😉


My initial reaction wasn’t the best. I thought the episode was boring and disappointing compared to the other ‘milestone’ ones. BUT I thought I’d give it another try and watch it a second time. It couldn’t be that I didn’t like the 200th episode.

So, I sat down and watched again… and I loved it. It was still not as good as number 100, but it gave us another glimpse into the real Steve. Again, what an amazing character he is. I loved his scenes with his Granddad’s old buddy. The ones in the restaurant, and even more so at the grave. Milton’s look of awe was just that. Awesome. And Milton is oh so right, they would be very proud of Steve. Heck, I am proud of Steve. LOL

And Kudos to the cinematography, it was brilliantly shot and colored. I have no idea how accurate the details actually are, but it certainly feels very right. I am normally not into these kinds of films, but I loved the cars and the clothes. Really great job.

I also loved the casual Steve, the one in the present. And I loved, LOVED how he solved the case in his sleep. Steve has a great analytical mind, trained by years with NI. And it is always such a joy to see that mind at work.

As you can see, I LOVED every aspect of Steve in this episode. I also really liked Jerry and Grover. Didn’t care for the singing Tani, good job though. But I can’t stand that kind of music. It was fun watching Junior dealing with a flirty surf student.

But most of all, I loved that Steve finally came to his senses, and ended this horrible story line of a restaurant. We will probably see it again once in a while, but I am OK with that. As long as Steve is no longer involved in that crappy story which dragged on for way too long.

The episode deserves five stars from me, although it’s not the same quality five stars as 5.07, but good enough.

We’ve got questions, and you’ve (maybe) got answers! With another week of TV gone by, we’re lobbing queries left and right about shows including Hawaii Five-0, Ray Donovan, Supergirland The Rookie!

Hawaii Five-01 | Can we talk about how massive Hawaii Five-0‘s Halloween moon was? That’s gotta disrupt the tides, right? Also, the human femur that Jerry dug up was awfully large for a teenage girl, wasn’t it?

2 | How satisfying was it when Madam Secretary‘s Elizabeth ripped into her teen daughter Alison for choosing not to vote in the midterm elections?

3 | Was Supergirl‘s origin story for Agent of Liberty almost uncomfortable — or oddly resonant — to watch, in these “us versus others” times? Also, TVLine reader Guylaw asks of that one flashback: Why were federal agents intervening on a workplace skirmish?

4 | Did it strike you as odd that Ray Donovan decided not to tell us via on-screen graphic how much time had passed during that extremely subtle leap-forward midway through Sunday’s premiere?

5 | Have we talked about the fact that two Desperate Housewives husbands have been POTUS on The Last Ship…?

6 | If room 3B of Arrow‘s Slabside prison is at the top of the main cell block’s staircase, how is Level 2 “downstairs”? (Like, is there a Level 1 that’s even deeper?) And after their recent prison fight club storylines, we have to ask: Are Arrow and Riverdale slowly becoming the same show? (They both feature vigilantes and archers, too!)

7 | Was The Resident the last show you expected to give you nightmares during Halloween week?

8 | Did The Good Doctor purposely not have Park refer to his ex-spouse by name or pronoun to leave the door open to explore his sexuality? Or were the details simply not important?

Real Housewives of Orange County9 | Shouldn’t all reality shows add a running count of “hours since the rest of the cast has spoken to the crazy one,” as Real Housewives of Orange County did this week?

10 | Why did Black Lightning kill off the sadly untapped Syonide, if her killer was just going to die a few episodes later? Also, would Freeland’s Board of Education really put someone like Lowry in charge of Garfield High?

11 | Why wouldn’t This Is Us‘ Kevin just meet Randall at his home in Alpine, N.J. instead of trekking so much farther to Philadelphia? Oh, and how did Kevin and Randall set up a voter registration drive/campaign event in such a short time… on a Sunday?

12 |TheRookie‘s Nolan and Chen act pretty cozy when around West — are they not hiding their secret romance from him?

13 | Will Watch What Happens Live‘s Debra Winger go down as one of the most difficult talk show guests of all time?

Tell Me a Story14 | Did Tell Me a Story‘s Jordan really think a pulse check on this very dead security guard was necessary? Also, don’t you wish the show had cast Kayla with an actress who’s slightly more convincing as a high school student?

15 | Was Live With Kelly and Ryan‘s Halloween “reboooooot” special among the most cringeworthy hours of TV to air in 2018? The Property Brothers dressed as the Olsen twinswas the stuff of nightmares, yes?

16 | Does Today have a contingency plan for if there’s a breaking news event on Halloween morning? Would Savannah, Hoda, Al et al deliver the news in their costumes?

17 | Did SNL boss Lorne Michaels just start binge-watching Ray Donovan or something?

Chicago Fire18 | Does this restaurant on Chicago Fire serve big enough cake slices?

19 | What are the odds that Arrowverse’s “Elseworlds” crossover worked in a cameo from Colin Donnell while filming in Chicago? (Maybe Tommy Merlyn is (bearded) Batman?!) Also, if the Windy City is doubling for Gotham, does this mean the prospective Batwoman series won’t film in Vancouver?

20 | Supernatural fans, wasn’t it nice to have an old-fashioned Monster of the Week Halloween episode? But was Sam’s story about why he hates the holiday worth the 14-year wait for an explanation?

21 | Are you digging the idea of Legacies introducing new, outlandish creatures (dragons, gargoyles, etc.) into the Vampire Diaries-verse? Or are you worrying that it might tarnish the franchise’s, ahem, legacy?

22 | Was this week’s Good Place just further proof that Andy Daly should appear on every TV comedy at some point?

23 | Is every episode of Will & Grace this season going to have a Very Special Subplot? (Not that there’s anything wrong with that.)

24 | Are Peter Gallagher’s news anchors from this week’s The Gifted (inset) and Murphy Brown related?

25 | After the looks that Grey’s Anatomy‘s Meredith and DeLuca exchanged this week, is anybody — anybody! — still even vaguely interested in the idea of her hooking up with Link? Speaking of Link, didn’t he become 50 percent more appealing when he started chopping off his hair (to ease the fears of a young cancer patient who was concerned about balding)?

26 | What surprised you more about House of Cards Season 6’s “previously on” recap — that Netflix allowed actual footage of Kevin Spacey’s Frank to be used or that, in using said footage so sparingly, they found a way to make him seem like a bit player in his own show?

Oahu and the U.S. Virgin Islands beckon Hollywood and productions from around the world with lush scenery, sunny beaches — and generous, budget-friendly incentives that many filmmakers find too good to pass up.

With its wide range of looks and locations, experienced crews, and the best infrastructure in Hawaii, Honolulu and the island of Oahu are widely regarded as the production center of the tropics.

The islands’ cinematic appeal and long tradition of production have attracted an impressive list of films and TV series, including two current network television series: the rebooted hit “Hawaii Five-0” (pictured above), now in its ninth year, and the rebooted procedural “Magnum, P.I.,” in its first year.

Both CBS series are overseen by producer, writer, showrunner Peter Lenkov and shoot at least 22 episodes per season.

Other Oahu-shot projects include ABC/Touchstone’s influential hit series “Lost,” co-created by J.J. Abrams and Damon Lindelof, which showcased the island’s diverse locations.

“All but four scenes in its six-year run were shot on-island, with Honolulu and Oahu doubling for settings including Korea, Los Angeles, Sydney, the Australian Outback, Munich, Afghanistan and even Buffalo, N.Y., in winter,” says Walea Constantinau, film commissioner, Honolulu Film Office.


Oahu also doubled for the Costa Rican Isla Nubar in the “Jurassic Park” mega-franchise, and provided locations for “Godzilla,” “Kong: Skull Island,” the 2017 box office juggernaut “Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle,” and South America-set Netflix film “Triple Frontier.”

Constantinau adds that the islands’ many production services companies also assist global productions of all sizes from Europe, Asia, Oceania and Canada. Networks traveling to Oahu and Honolulu include the BBC, Fuji TV and Australia’s Nine Network. Numerous commercials are shot there every year as well.

Georja Skinner, division chief at Creative Industries Hawaii, Department of Business Economic Development & Tourism, reports that Hawaii has seen a big surge in production over the past two years, with 2018 spending hitting an estimated $438 million and generating some $757 million in economic impact, including household impact, and an estimated $48 million in state taxes. Total jobs are estimated at over 4,800.

“To keep up the momentum, we’re extending for another seven years our refundable tax credit,” says Skinner. The credit, which has been in effect since 2007, equals 20% of qualified production costs on Oahu, and 25% on the other Hawaiian Islands.

The island also supports its Creative Lab programs, an initiative designed to develop home-grown talent. Also in the works: plans for a 30-acre studio facility.

With its postcard landscapes and unique culture, this small U.S. territory is considered by many a gem of the Caribbean. And to the film and television industry — as Film Office director Luana Wheatley notes — it offers “locations, convenience and the American Flag.”

But she stresses that while the U.S. Virgin Islands are known for their stunning coastlines, their appeal lies “way beyond beach. Here you’ll find a diversity of locations, ranging from rural farm land, ranches with cowboys, and scenic New England- or California-style shore drives.”

The U.S. Virgin Islands also boast long country roads, African savannah-like landscapes, flat plains, gorges, lush rain forests and rolling hills. Some of the towns hark back to old-world settlements and resemble quaint European villages.

Also available to filmmakers: Cosmopolitan settings, colorful Caribbean architecture and, of course, the legendary and ubiquitous breathtaking white sand beaches surrounded by turquoise waters.

The islands have doubled for such varied locations as Greece, Afghanistan, Mexico, Brazil and Key West, and credits include such high-profile films, TV series and commercial clients as “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button,” “The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn” and “The Shawshank Redemption.”

Other notable projects: “Ghost Ship of St. Thomas” (Travel Channel), HGTV’s “House Hunters International” and “Beachfront Bargain Hunt,” as well as ABC’s “The Bachelor.”
Companies that have shot on the islands include E! Entertainment, Food Network, DirecTV, T. Rowe Price, Target, Maxim Magazine, Nordstrom, Italian Vogue, Lands’ End, Target and REEF.
“You’ll always find an experienced film industry with English-speaking crews and the use of U.S. currency,” Wheatley notes.

The archipelago consists of four main islands: St. Croix, St. John, St. Thomas and Water Island. Additionally there are countless outer islands and cays. Each island has its own character and unique locations and all can be scouted by helicopter within an hour.

The official language of the U.S. Virgin Islands is English and right-to-work laws apply. Plus, no visas or passports are required for U.S. citizens.

The destination welcomes year-round shoots, with an average temperature of 80 degrees Fahrenheit and water temperature of about 77 degrees. There’s no sales tax and productions get special exception from excise taxes, duty, bonds or carnets on importation of equipment and accessories.

The U.S. Virgin Islands filming incentive requires a minimum spend of $250,000, and has a funding cap of $2.5 million per year.
