(new) Hawaii Five-0 on CBS

the new Hawaii Five-0 on CBS


We have done so many of the interviews and speeches from Sunset on the Beach lately to update our archives and I thought that it might be a fun idea to let you all choose which look of Alex at SOTB over the years, did you like best. With it I have some trivia just for some added fun. Hope you enjoy it and also the pictures that were chosen – most of them for a specific reason. (And remember to click on them to see them better)

SOTB Season 1

(13 September 2010)

  • Clothes: Alex was dressed in a black suit with a white open neck shirt without a tie.
  • Assisting Alex on the red carpet: Diana Jackson his PA at that time.
  • Family and Friends: At the first SOTB Alex was accompanied by his girlfriend that he had at that time, actress Amber Clayton.
  • Fellow Cast & their families: All the main cast members, Scott, Daniel and Grace were there, as well as Taryn Manning. (There is not a lot of footage available, and I am therefore not sure who else attended.)

  • Assisting Alex on the red carpet: Kristen Rowsey was Alex’s PA at the time.
  • Family & Friends: He attended with Malia who was far along in her pregnancy with Lion and her son Spike, and a number of her family (including Malia’s father and stepmother, and also her brother Daniel and his wife Natalie). And of course at the time Saxon also stayed in Hawaii and attended the event with them as well.
  • Fellow Cast & their families: At the time, Scottwas not there, because his mother passed away during that week (but Kacy attended). Grace was also not there. But Daniel and his wife Mia as well as Masi Oka and Michelle Borth attended.

SOTB Season 4

(26 September 2013)

  • Clothes: Dark Grey suit with a white shirt and a tie (it is rather easy to spot the pictures from this SOTB, as it was the only time that Alex wore a tie. I loved it!)

  • Family & Friends: Alex attended with Malia and Spike and Malia’s father.
  • Fellow Cast & their families: As usual Daniel and his wife Mia attended, but neither Scott nor Grace was at the event – Grace was pregnant at the time. This was of course the first year that Chi McBride attended as part of the team. Michelle Borth was also there.

Each and every year Alex looked like a star and gave his very best to the fans and also his colleagues.

Which year was your favourite for the way Alex dressed?

Alex:

First of all, Daniel, thank you so much. What Danielsaid, I echo it a 100 times. But one thing that hasn’t been mentioned, I don’t think anyway, is …is …. One thing that we need to talk about with this show. You know, we thanked … we thanked the state of Hawaii, we thanked all the writers and the directors and the amazing cast and the amazing crew and the fans and everything. We haven’t thanked the people whose homes we go into every day.

[Audience start clapping]

Hold on, haven’t said it yet.

[Laughs from everybody]

Every day on the show, we go into someone’s house. We kick in their door. We shoot someone. We knock down a wall. We burn their cars. We cut your streets off and the kids are late for school.

If you guys didn’t give us the patience and the permission that you give us on a daily basis … If you guys didn’t let us into your lives and into your homes and into hearts, we couldn’t do … we don’t have a show without you.

Hawaii is the first and the most important character in this show. And we love it and we really appreciate it, but without you guys we can’t do it.

So, thank you to the people of Hawaii. Thank you very much. Mahalo.

Aloha from Honolulu…

When I discovered that our return journey was routing us via Los Angeles, it seemed like a good opportunity to take in 3 days’ worth of R&R in Honolulu; the place I first came to way back in 1990. My children were teenagers and for many reasons it was a special holiday. In the intervening years, Waikiki Beach has changed somewhat and ‘grown up’. The hotels have obviously multiplied and grown in size and when you find all the major chains in one place you know tourism is a massive business. Our choice this time was the Hilton Hawaiian Village Waikiki Beach Resort. It is a huge village, more of a town, which is still growing, and on my third day there are large parts I have yet to discover. Similarly, every brand and fashion house is present too, and judging by the number of bags people carry, the dollars are pouring in. And yet……

Our days had “chilled and lazy” written all over them. Our first day was spent simply getting over an overnight flight and we were happy to laze by the pool in the hot sun (or, in Ann’s case, in the hot shade). By the second day, we were ready to step outside the complex and explore. First a beach walk (sand you sink right into), breakfast and a swim. The time just slips away, but plenty of time left for more of an expedition. Thanks to an unfortunate “loss” in Auckland, I needed to replace my missing iPad and research found that the cost here was the same in dollars as in pounds at home. That took us on a pleasant walk to an Apple shop, situated in a beautiful shopping mall. Job done (as well as a drink and early evening meal), so we wandered off to walk back but found a trolley bus service which, for $2 each, took customers to the major hotels on Waikiki Beach. Therefore, for a very small amount, we got a real Cook’s tour as well as a ride back.

Storms were threatened for today but, although hot and overcast, there was no rain, as yet. Our trolley ride had inspired us to investigate the original Waikiki Beach where, in the early 20th century, legendary surfer, Olympic swimmer and Waikiki native, Duke Kahanamoku, introduced the sport to the world. There stands his monument, complete with fresh lei, and we filled our shoes with sand as we watched today’s surfers take to the waves.

Just along the road is what last night’s fabulous trolley driver, Nina, described as “the concrete jungle”. Shops, galleries and everything to tempt the wealthy hedonists who come to Honolulu for things of a more materialistic kind than the mighty surf. We found the Maui Brewing Company just after marvelling at a rarely seen Tesla showroom. The beer we could afford….just!

I really believed it was heaven on earth the last time I came but now the visitors seem to swamp the lovely, smiley, warm-hearted local people. It really is the 50th State of America and the Polynesian Villages seem to be just places for the tourists. I have had a lovely time but find my memories perhaps a little flawed. Maybe I left it too long to return and missed the changes during the intervening years.

It’s been lovely to see you, Hawaii, but now we are homeward bound. 5 am departure from the hotel and then flights to Los Angeles, Heathrow and Manchester. It’s been an amazing adventure over the last month and I can’t believe it is coming to an end…..until the next time.

Carolyn’s Curios & Curiosities

Let’s get the jokes out of the way first… Hawai’i (note the apostrophe) makes me think of a Geordie asking, “How are yi?” Similarly, #sorry, Waikiki prompts me inwardly to ask, “Why not kiki?!”

Enough, we all cry.

We are towards the end of the longest holiday I’ve ever been on. Until last year but one, my longest holiday was a fortnight. However, when Ann and Kath mulled over this trip, I went along with it. Good decision? Yes, certainly!

This is our final holiday destination as we begin our flight back early tomorrow morning. The thrill of crossing the International Date Line masked the crossing of the Equator back into the Northern Hemisphere. To be honest, I only realised this when I suddenly recovered my sense of direction walking along the beach here. The position of the Sun is more important to me than I thought. Similarly, it’s a tick-off for me in that, when we get back to Manchester, we will have circumnavigated the globe!

So, what of Hawai’i…

I don’t think I had a clear expectation. Other than Hawaii Five-0 (the original!) and Elvis’ Blue Hawaii etc., I didn’t have much idea of what the place was like.

However, it’s somewhat akin to those memories except they’ve commercialised, gone bigger, brasher and, frankly, lost some of the tropical magic. Of course, we are greeted everywhere with, “Aloha!” but I wonder whether even that is just for the tourists. Waiters and waitresses alternate, after you’ve ordered with, “You got it!” or “My pleasure!” Talking of tourists, predominantly they are from the Far East – Japan, China and South Korea – with a much larger proportion of teenage girls than would be found in most resorts. Honolulu has a strong historical connection with those countries and, certainly, this U.S. State is very different from all 49 others.

Our ‘hotel’ is, genuinely, a village. Aptly called Hilton Hawaiian Village, it has more shops than St. Anne’s, I’m sure. It runs like clockwork and covers all 24 hours on the clock. So much to see and do without going off the campus. But, we did… on campus, we fo7nd Rainbow Tower (with the tallest mosaic in the world), Rainbow Lenai and Rainbow Bazaar with our own relatively tame Rainbow!

We walked along the beach, paddled in the Pacific, swam in one of the pools and indulged in laying in the sun. As we, also, needed to visit an Apple shop down the road, we found the most impressive Mall I’ve seen. The quality of the shops, eateries etc. was cosmopolitan and upmarket, indeed. We had spotted, whilst walking in the midday sun some quirky trolley buses and we decided to get one to return to the hotel. After missing the first call for our hotel, we stayed on board and had a great trip round nighttime Waikiki. Serendipity and worthwhile.

On the beach, we spotted an outrigger, Honolulu Police (without an Hawaii Five-0 sign and more. As we return to the UK, the memories will stay fresh for many years and these blog posts and photos will help. We, also, saw Diamond Head the name of the volcano and the hotel block we stayed in. Compare Elvis’ backdrop to my own photo.

Curiosity – the smell. We couldn’t place it. Possibly vegetable, flowers? Not floral, though. But, could be something else. Not sure.

Aloha!

Waikiki was a zoo last night, an estimated 8,000 residents and tourists packed Queen’s Beach on Thursday (even as early as Wednesday afternoon), to get a glimpse of their favorite Hawaii Five-0 actors and catch a free concert from the Jonas Brothers after the screening.

By Diane Lee
Published: 27 September

We braved the crowds to chat with the stars and producers, and along the way we met some super fans from Australia, Belgium, Norway and Italy.Many of them didn’t get any shuteye for 24 hours, but it was worth the wait—they got plenty of love from actors Alex O’Loughlin and Daniel Dae Kim (he even jumped the fence to greet his adoring fans). They both spent more time signing autographs and posing for pictures with fans than walking the red carpet to talk to the media.

That made the several ladies from LLOL, also known as the Long Legs O’Loughlin fan club, happy.

Canadian resident Audrey Manasterski, 66, was among the first fans camping overnight on Queen’s Beach near the end of the carpet. It’s her fifth time in Hawaii, and she’s been to all the premieres.

“We’ve been here since day one,” says Manasterski, just before the stars arrived. “We made it all three nights without sleeping; I haven’t slept yet.”

Mary Enriquez, 68, travelled from England carrying her country flag and a scrapbook filled with O’Loughlin’s photos and newspaper clippings.

“I make one every single year with all of Alex’s personal life, his private life, everything that’s going in his films, bits and pieces from the Hawaii magazine,”Enriquez says. He’s signed one every single year for me.”

Los Angeles resident Lisa Fortenberry, 59, joined her friends Manasterski and Enriquez. She hoped to get a February 2011 copy of Australia’sJetstar Magazine autographed by O’Loughlin. She did.

We’d like to see a little more romance between Steve and Catherine,”Fortenberry says.

Episode 401

Michelle Borth, who plays Steve McGarrett’s love interest Catherine Rollins,says viewers will get to know her character better.

“We’ve only known Catherine in the Navy and that’s been her entire life,” she says. “And for the first time, she’s going to be leaving and trying to figure out what she’s going to do now.”

And does the romance heat up for Catherine and McGarrett?

“Maybe, maybe not,” she teases. “You’ll just have to wait and see.”

And the biggest crowd reaction during the screening of the first episode? The appearance of a shirtless McGarrett.

Before we start with this post, I just want to mention that after some request for translation yesterday, I activated the translation option button; and you can find the widget for it near the top on the right hand side of the blog. Just a warning – after trying to read it in my own home language, I found that the translation looks to be very literal, and it can be very confusing. Luckily it is very easy to switch back to the English version, once you tried it.

Interesting to see the main cast members of Hawaii Five-0 interact with each other in those early days. Remember at the time of the interview, they have only spend about a month together, earlier that year in March to film the pilot episode. This is nearly two months later and also two months before they were to started shooting the rest of Season 1.

[They show a clip from the pilot episode]

Alex: It’s kind of an aggressive contemporary version … you know contemporary continuation of what we knew to be the old show. And it has a lot of great stuff that the old show had. You know we have … you know, it’s got the crime, the characters that are driving the show. And it’s got the comedy. Yeah, I think we have … we probably have more comedy than the old show.

[They show a clip of a cargument from the pilot episode]

Scott: You’ll see from the pilot in, the idea of the shows to come, is that it is really going to be character driven. It’s not going to be just procedural. So I think, you know you’re going to get the people to like CSI for the procedural aspect of it, but it’s also going to be you know, like a movie in the sense of being driven by characters, and you know … and the plots and the action. And we’re going to try to keep it as close to film making as possible.

Alex: Ten o’clock gives us a little more freedom to …

Scott: …. Leeway

[They show a clip from pilot episode]

Grace: We are definitely all going to be moving to Hawaiiand we’re going to be working …. I think everybody is pretty excited about it.

Alex: Well Daniel, Daniel lives there.

Grace: Yeah.

Daniel: I hear it’s a nice place to live.

[Laughs all around]

Daniel: I’m looking forward to checking it out myself. I’m just glad that I’m back with a really quality project and some great people, so …. I’m looking forward to it.

[They show a clip from the show]

Alex: We’ve done everything we can to maintain the integrity of the old show. And the integrity of the characters that … that you know, the generation before us knew in that show …
