(new) Hawaii Five-0 on CBS

the new Hawaii Five-0 on CBS


“Ke kanaka i ha’ule mai ka lewa mai” – When a vacationing dad on a flight to Honolulu is kidnapped and force to parachute mid-flight, Danny, Tani and Junior track him through the jungle to discover that he may not be who he seems. Also, McGarrett is threatened with a secret from his past, on HAWAII FIVE-0, Friday, Oct. 5 (9:00-10:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network.

CBS translated Ke kanaka i ha’ule mai ka lewa mai to The Man Who Fell from the Sky

Despite the best intentions, sometimes life just gets in the way. So, here is a quick review for the second episode.

I am sure LeiCa will spoil us with great pictures soon. 😉

Enjoy Cokie’s fun review. And remember, don’t take it too seriously.

We have a plane heading to Oahu and when the pilot says they are 10 minutes away, a man decides he needs to go to the restroom. On the flights I have been on, that is the “time to buckle your seatbelt” and not “I waited the entire flight to go to the bathroom now”. But… he goes to the little boys room. Now, what was the parachutist going to do if the man didn’t want to go to potty? He didn’t have much time left for Plan B. And next question, the parachutist blew open the door. Even though they were getting ready to land and the altitude was low, wouldn’t things like, oh, maybe PEOPLE be sucked out of the plane?

(Ehm, not so sure about that. As far as I know, the pressure in the plain resembles an altitude of about 3000 meters. So, there wouldn’t have been a big difference to the outside of the plane, hence no sucking out of people. Please, anyone in the know, correct this if it’s wrong.)

After this, we see flying, floating and soggy money. I called it last week. (ROFL, I guess everyone called it last week!)

Eddie just couldn’t wait to dig up all that neat stuff they buried just for him! Junior and Danny were retrieving money and when Steve arrived, Danny started with the “everything in the universe is your fault” speech. Steve countered with “you didn’t show up to help” which only proves that this restaurant idea still is a bad, bad idea. (AMEN!)

Tani goes to visit her former instructor at the Academy… the one she apparently punched in the face. She sees a class of recruits who need a LOT of help in not contaminating a crime scene. That was scary. She tells the guy she needs help and he is the only person she can trust. I’m sorry… she is a part of a team that for some reason trusts her… maybe she could return the favor. Given all the times Steve has overlooked being double crossed, he always finds the good in people. But no, she can’t trust him to be adult in this situation and listen and do what is right. Why would this ruin her relationship with the team? In some instances, I like Tani. This is one where she should actually be fired. Just my opinion… (Nope, mine too. Told, well actually yelled, she should be fired!)

Keo told Tani no. He doesn’t like rule breakers and he wants to go by the book. So, she leaves. But we all know this isn’t the end of this storyline… at the end of the episode, he shows up at her house and agrees to help her. My thinking is he should have told her to go to her boss. (Absolutely!)

Steve stays behind at HQ and sends Danny, Tani and Junior into the jungle. Apparently by jumping out of a chopper. (Really? I guess I totally missed that.)

I can’t believe Danny agreed to do so. In the jungle, Junior lost all SEAL training and couldn’t figure out how Teague crossed the river so Danny had to step up and explain it all to him. I’m sorry but I was just shaking my head in disbelief. Steve stayed behind so that Danny could dispense words of wisdom to the new recruits. Because… when he is at a crime scene, they look to him for guidance. Hmm… isn’t that how it should be? (That was so ridiculous. Danny could maybe teach them some detective stuff at a crime scene, but tracking in the junge? Give me a break!)

Why was Steve driving Renee’s van? Where was his truck? Grover’s was in the shop. Why was Grover shotgun in his wife’s car? How did they not see the writing on the wall? The minute I saw Steve behind the wheel, I said goodbye to that car. (LOL, yep.)

Not that he isn’t a good driver – he is. He knows what he is doing and knows what the situation is at all times. Which is why he intentionally wrecked the car. If I were Grover, Steve would be the one explaining to Renee where the car was.

I did like the scene where Grover was at Miller’s door making small talk while Steve came in the balcony. I hope he didn’t have to climb too high up those balcony rails. Wonder if there is a missing scene there?

Greer is captured and after everything is over, Steve escorts her to a waiting chopper to be removed from the island. She has her parting shot which is a threat to expose something she and Steve had done in Morocco years ago. So, I guess we will be hearing from her (or her threats) in the future. I can’t decide if Steve looked worried or it was a look that was “glad you are gone”. Bet he was rethinking THAT liaison all those years ago. (My reaction to that scene: Damn, that man is attractive!)

It was a decent episode. Maybe three or three plus stars. Or Eddie woofs. Poor Eddie. Danny was treating him like a dog. He was just doing what comes natural.

Agree with you. It was an enjoyable episode… to a point. 😊

Reboots of TV shows aren’t new. The New Monkees, The New Adam-12, The New Odd Couple, The New Gidget, The New Perry Mason, which aired while the old Perry Mason, Raymond Burr, was starring in Ironside, which would later be rebooted in 2013. Oh, and there’s reportedly another Perry Mason reboot in the works. From Dragnet to Kojak, Love Boat to Fantasy Island, Dark Shadows to Mission: Impossible, reboots have always been a thing.

I’ve changed my stance on reboots somewhat. As much as I would love for the people in charge to stop dipping into the pop culture well of yesterday and instead invest in fresh ideas written and performed by those not necessarily straight, white, cis, and mostly male, I’m no longer screaming about the originals that are being rebooted as being untouchable and sacrosanct.


The reboots are not for me.

If the reboots were for me, they’d just put the reruns on. I mean I love shows that went off the air before I was born. But. Why can’t they be redone, updated, and polished for a new audience? It worked for Battlestar Galactica. The original ran only one season, written off as a hokey Star Wars rip-off, though it was followed by the single-season sequel Galactica 1980. The reboot ran four season, garnered quite a bit of attention and acclaim, and created quite an enthusiastic fanbase. I never got into it as I prefer my Cylons shiny and the bad guy to have a purple light bulb for a head and wear a disco cloak, but even I know that we were all blessed having Richard Hatch back on our TVs on a somewhat regular basis.

I cried foul when it was announced that Hawaii Five-O was being rebooted. But it’s in its ninth season now. The only episodes of it I’ve watched pertain directly to the original (the remake of “Hookman”, Ed Asner’s character from “Wooden Model of a Rat” coming back, their take on “Cocoon” for the season 9 opener) and while I appreciated those episodes and the fact that show goes out of its way to pay such homage and respect to the original, I’ve never felt compelled to watch it on the reg. It’s not for me. But other people enjoy it plenty.

To me, it’s actually a good example of a reboot. The love for the original is plainly visible. The important elements are intact. The stories and cast have been updated, the characters tweaked, but at their core, they’re very familiar.

The reboot of Magnum PI appears to be going in this direction, which makes sense since the guy who developed it also developed the Hawaii Five-0 and MacGyver reboots. I watched the first few episodes, and I think the respect is very much there. No, Magnum doesn’t have a mustache (though there was a mustache reference in the second episode), but he’s still a handsome and charming war vet turned private investigator and all-around do-gooder and at his core, that’s who Magnum is. There is an unfortunate lack of short-shorts, though. We’re being denied man thighs.

But that’s a personal complaint.

Also greater than the mustache is that this Magnum is Latino. That’s one nice aspect that reboots can provide. Diversity. Yes, there’s always squawking when a male character is recast as a woman (Starbuck on Battlestar Galactica, Kono on Hawaii Five-0, Higgins on Magnum PI), which tells more about the squawkers than it does about the shows. But let’s be real, kids. Television, particularly action and sci-fi shows, are largely sausage fests. There’s nothing wrong with women cast as known characters provided that the characters reflect the change.

Getting non-white actors in those classic roles, too, opens up a world of storytelling provided the change is reflected. There are now new dimensions added because the characters aren’t working what’s considered the default. The reboot of One Day at a Time features a Cuban-American family. Back in the ’80s, The New Odd Couple (not to be confused with the 2015 reboot of The Odd Couple) featured a Black duo played by Ron Glass and Demond Wilson. Reboots also offer the opportunity to create new characters that could be played by non-white, non-male, non-straight, non-cis actors.

Reboots aren’t going away. So long as they can be viewed as a pop culture lure to draw in old fans while creating new, something with a vague scent of money to it, they’re going to keep getting the green light. And some of them are going to be positively horrid bombs that spit all over their source material and they should be rightfully shunned.

But others won’t be. Others will end up being pretty okay. And if we can’t enjoy them, then we should leave them to those that do because we still have the originals.

And if they ever need a consultant, I’m available.
