(new) Hawaii Five-0 on CBS

the new Hawaii Five-0 on CBS

One thing you should all know about me is that I love Netflix. I’ve had it for years and could easily live without cable. Over the past few years, I’ve noticed that I tend to watch the same shows over and over again, intermixed with new shows and movies. I’ve watched these shows so many times that they are usually just noise in the background as I’m getting ready or cleaning up. In honor of Flare Month coming up, I wanted to share my list of binge worthy shows on Netflix.



This is an obvious choice but I still couldn’t leave it off the list. I never really watched Friends when it was on TV but in college, the reruns got me through some boring nights stuck in the dorm room studying.

Hawaii Five-O


This is one show that is still actively making episodes on TV that I’m watching. Strangely, I don’t watch the new episodes; I wait until they come to Netflix. But I still binge watch the first 5 seasons over and over again. The characters are hilarious and because it’s set in Hawaii, it’s different from other cop shows.

A Different World

I grew up watching this show. My sister and I would willing get up at 5:30 am to watch 2 episodes before my dad woke up and watched the news. It was originally a spin off of the Cosby show that followed Denise to Hillman College. However, after the first season, Denise left the show and it followed the remaining characters through college and into the real world.


This is a Canadian show my younger sister introduced me to. It’s about the Canadian equivalent of a SWAT team. It’s so addicting! The story line is from a different perspective than most crime shows. These aren’t detectives or beat cops. They are simply SWAT that comes into defuse situations.

Last Man Standing

If you loved Home Improvement from the 90s, you will love Last Man Standing! The comedy is very similar. Tim Allen is gun toting, republican member of the NRA with 3 daughters, one of which is a liberal. Every episode makes me giggle. I highly recommend this show to anyone who enjoys comedies!

One Tree Hill

I watch this One Tree Hill for nostalgia purposes. I watched this show in high school and college. It follows a group of friends from high school through adulthood. I’ll be honest, the first season is pretty cheesy but that’s part of what I love about it. The characters are relatable, humorous and dramatic. There’s a little something for everyone.


I know. I know. Another cop show. I’m sorry! I can’t help it. I love crime shows! Growing up, I had aspirations of wanting to work for the FBI in forensics. NCIS is a spin off of JAG (which I also love) and follows a team of investigators that solve crimes for the Navy. You wouldn’t believe how funny some of the characters are. One of the best shows on TV!

What are your favorite Netflix shows or movies to watch? I’m always willing to try out new ones. Happy binge watching!

Norman Hudis

Norman Hudis

Norman Hudis, who penned episodes of various spy and spy-related television shows, has died at 93, ACCORDING TO AN OBITUARY BY THE BBC.

In his native England, Hudis is remembered as the writer of the first six “Carry On” comedy films that began in 1958.

Hudis was very busy with spy-related entertainment. He wrote episodes of The Saint and Danger Man. He moved to the United States, where he wrote episodes of The Man From U.N.C.L.E. (including its final two-part story, The Seven Wonders of the World Affair, released outside the U.S. as the film How to Steal the World), The Wild Wild West, Hawaii Five-O, It Takes a Thief, The FBI and Search, among others.

According to Craig Henderson’s U.N.C.L.E. timeline website, producer Norman Felton in 1969 suggested an U.N.C.L.E. revival as a TV movie and that Hudis would be a good writer for such a project. Nothing came of the suggestion.

Here’s some scoop on Hawaii Five-0 from Entertainment Weekly’s Natalie Abrams’ The Spoiler Room column, which was posted on 2/5/16.


I need some Danno scoop for Hawaii Five-0 ASAP. — Jane
Here’s some breaking news: Melanie Griffith will return as Danno’s mom in the Feb. 19 episode. During the hour, the FBI questions Clara over money that Matt Williams (Dane Cook) had tucked away, which leads to a shocking reveal about the Five-0 team.

Welcome to the Spoiler Room, a safe place for spoiler addicts to come on a weekly basis to learn what’s coming next on their favorite shows and, hopefully, get a few of their own questions answered. If you want scoop on a specific show, send your questions to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

Would love to know the episode title-synopsis for Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. 311! — Susan
Your wish is my command. I can exclusively reveal that the title of the midseason premiere is “Bouncing Back.” And here’s the synopsis: “In the aftermath of his trip to Maveth, Coulson is more determined than ever to get to Gideon Malick and put an end to Hydra once and for all. Daisy and the team encounter more Inhumans who have powers like they’ve never seen before, but will they be friends or enemies of S.H.I.E.L.D.?” Dun. Dun. Duuuuuun.

I need some Danno scoop for Hawaii Five-0 ASAP. — Jane
Here’s some breaking news: Melanie Griffith will return as Danno’s mom in the Feb. 19 episode. During the hour, the FBI questions Clara over money that Matt Williams (Dane Cook) had tucked away, which leads to a shocking reveal about the Five-0 team.  

Is there anything you can tease about the Underworld on Once Upon a Time? — Tanya
First, did you see this? Second, though I’ve actually been to the Underworld myself, I’ll let Josh Dallas take this one. “It’s a place that, once they get there, they’re going to discover that possibly some of these people can be saved and brought out of there, because maybe they’re misplaced in this world,” Dallas says. “We’re going to meet some people down there that maybe you don’t expect or you haven’t seen in quite a while — maybe a family member of David’s we might see down there. There is definitely a particular person down there for David that he’s going to come across, and Mary Margaret will come across that person too.” (Hint: The answer can be found in the recent Hot Seat.)

Any scoop on Clarke and The Ice Queen? And I’ll take anything Clexa. — Purple Monkey
Believe me when I say that Arkadia becoming the 13th clan of Earth will not sit well with everyone, leading to a showdown between Clarke and the Ice Queen that turns… I can’t quite say bloody, but you’ll understand more when you see it. Basically, that encounter forces Lexa’s hand when it comes to Clarke — and you will not be able to breathe during that scene. Good luck!

On Grey’s Anatomy, what’s going to happen to Grey House now that Meredith kicked Amelia out? — Seamus
Given what Meredith goes through in the midseason premiere, you’d think maybe she’d lean on Amelia and let her back into the house, but it doesn’t sound likely. “Those two characters don’t like each other right now, so they won’t really be crossing paths for a while,” says Kelly McCreary, who notes that Maggie will try not to get stuck in the middle of the current sibling rivalry. “Maggie and Amelia have developed a real bond. They care very much about each other. One of the reasons Maggie always fell in middle is that she cares for them equally. Maggie will remain loyal to both sisters and just try to stay out of the fray.”

Any teases for NCIS? — Jameson
In the upcoming 299th episode (!), fans will get some insight into the team’s lives after hours — also the title of the episode — as they work to solve a case that seemed cut and dry, but really makes Gibbs’ and everyone else’s gut churn. This does not bode well for DiNozzo, whose date starts to unravel as he begins to focus more on the case than his companion. While Abby is off collecting evidence in her PJs, we’ll also see McGee and Delilah (the returning Margo Harshman) at home as McGee recreates a crime scene out of their dinner. Bon appétit!

Are we going to get an Aurora-Cami showdown on The Originals? — Shawn
The real question is whether you want an Aurora-Cami showdown. While Cami is rightly pissed, she’s also “facing the classic conundrum of how would I ever kill a thousand-year-old psycho vampire?” Leah Pipes says. In short, Cami won’t suddenly be all powerful — much like Josh’s transition, where he was “somewhat powerless” at first.

When will we have all three Flashes fighting side by side on The Flash? — Retro12Hunter
Not anytime soon. “I guess that could happen down the road,” executive producer Andrew Kreisberg says, likening Wally West’s journey in becoming Kid Flash to Roy Harper’s with Arsenal. “I wouldn’t want to say no, but so much of that stuff is a little bit further into the future than we’ve planned for right now.”

Got any exciting details on what’s coming up for Castle and Beckett? — Anna
In order to keep their rekindled flame secret, Castle is forced to come up with a convincing cover to continue working with the 12th precinct. Unfortunately, what he comes up with will ruffle a few feathers and even leads to a, let’s say, physical altercation.

Will everyone survive Damon’s attack on The Vampire Diaries? — Amy
Really, you should be most worried about Damon and Stefan. It’s one thing to be stuck inside the Phoenix Stone, but it’s another to have to readjust to the real world. The difficulties that come with that will lead to what I’d say is this season’s most shocking moment yet.

Best news I’ve heard all week: We all knew it was going to happen, but it’s still exciting for the Supergirl-The Flash crossover to be official.

That’s a wrap on this week’s Spoiler Room. Be sure to email your questions to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or tweet them to @NatalieAbrams.

A Valentine’s Day themed episode of Hawaii Five-0 airs on 2/12 and will feature music by Coldplay. A Head Full Of Dreams was released last year, and even though the songs “Adventure Of A Lifetime,” “Amazing Day,” “Birds,” and “Everglow” have been out for two months, Hawaii Five-0 is still billing this as a “new Coldplay songs” showcase. The show’s executive producer Peter Lenkov stated the following in a press release:

As we started writing the Valentine’s Day episode, that album basically became our soundtrack and we knew we wanted to use their music to illustrate what was happening with our Ohana. These songs were just a perfect fit.

The episode is titled “Hoa ‘inea” (Hawaiian for “Misery Loves Company”) and apparently the Hawaii Five-0 protagonists will be investigating a double-homicide! Love hurts, indeed.


HAWAII FIVE-0 will feature four songs from Grammy Award-winning band Coldplay in their Valentine’s Day episode, to be broadcast Friday, Feb. 12 (9:00-10:00 PM, ET/PT), on the CBS Television Network. The songs, all from the band’s latest album A Head Full of Dreams, include “Adventure of a Lifetime,” “Amazing Day,” “Birds” and “Everglow.”

“The first time I heard A Head Full of Dreams, I was blown away by every track,” said Peter Lenkov, Executive Producer of HAWAII FIVE-0. “As we started writing the Valentine’s Day episode, that album basically became our soundtrack and we knew we wanted to use their music to illustrate what was happening with our Ohana. These songs were just a perfect fit.”

In the episode titled “Hoa ‘inea” (Hawaiian for “Misery Loves Company”), Five-0 investigates a double homicide involving marital infidelity as McGarrett and the team recount their disastrous Valentine’s Day experiences. Chef Masaharu Morimoto guest stars as himself.

CHEAT TWEET: THIS JUST IN! @Coldplay rocks the #ValentinesDay episode of #H50! 2/12 9pm #Five0Fridays http://bit.ly/1S3rr99


Actor Scott Caan has been a Hollywood mainstay for years now, starring in such films as Gone In Sixty Seconds and the Oceans Trilogy, but he recently achieved a huge goal in the world of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu as Actor Scott Caan earned his BJJ Black Belt After 15 Yrs Of Training. Not only the fact that the son of the legendary James Caan was able to achieve the status of black belt amazing, but he has been training for well over a decade to achieve that goal is stunning as well. Caan has been training at the Egon Inoue Grappling Unlimited Academy with fellow actor Alex O’Loughlin in Hawaii.

Caan was awarded his black belt on February 1st of this year and he even posted a picture of his achievement to his Instagram account. TV show co-star Alex O’Loughlin has had his Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Purple Belt for two years now, so his is slightly below of Caan when it comes to belt level, but embracing the jiu-jitsu lifestyle has been a huge part of their lives, which you can obviously tell by both their love of the art form and how far they have come in their training thus far.

Like this:



Cory and Shawn

I’ve recently talked about Boy Meets World and how much I like it. One of the reasons I like it is because of Cory and Shawn. They have the best, most genuine friendship. You see how their friendship evolves from when they were in middle school to high school to college (although I haven’t gotten to the college years yet).

They weren’t afraid to talk about how they loved each other and that’s rare in male friendships, although these days it isn’t.

However one question, what happened to their other friend? They were like a trio in the beginning but he disappeared after season 2.

Moving on

Ryan and Seth

I feel like this is an underrated bromance. Perhaps because when The O.C. was on people didn’t really say bromance and shipping didn’t exist… at least I wasn’t aware of it. Nevertheless it still seems underrated.

And it’s a shame because not only is The O.C. an amazing show (to this day it’s still one of my favourites) but Ryan and Seth’s friendship is golden.

From day one their bond is cemented.

I mean Seth was lonely because of the posh snobs and as a geek I can totally relate, it’s hard making it out there in the teenage world when you’re quirky and sarcastic. Some people just don’t get that, but Ryan did. He accepted Seth for who he was and effortlessly offered his hand of friendship, something I feel Seth forever appreciated.

You don’t even need me to tell you just watch season 1 and especially the finale to know what I mean. He couldn’t live in O.C. without him. That just goes to show how important friendship is, sometimes more important than love (because he totally leaves Summer, something I never thought he’d be able to do).

Scott and Stiles

I love Teen Wolf and if you follow my blog you know this as I’ve already done an article on my love for Teen Wolf.

One of the things I love about Teen Wolf is the friendship between Stiles and Scott. Even through all the crap that they go through their friendship remains in tact.

I mean Scott gets turned into a werewolf, Stiles accepts it, in fact he’s the one who points it out. When Scott gets popular Stiles is right there alongside him. Stiles gets possessed by the Nogitsune Scott maintains his trust in him and he tries his hardest to save him.

Stiles isn’t a werewolf but he is in his pack. I think that’s beautiful.

It gets dark in season 5 and their friendship is tested but I believe they’ll pull through. Their bond is too strong for Theo to break …. Theo *dark look*

Danny and Steve

These guys from Hawaii Five O give me so much jokes. Their bickering relationship sometimes resembles that of a married couple or that of two best friends who get along most of the time and argue the rest of the time.

You never doubt that they love each other but sometimes you do wonder how they manage to stay friends with all that arguing.

It helps that it isn’t that serious and that they completely trust each other. They will always have each others backs and that complete faith and trust they have in each other is what makes them great friends and one of my favourite bromances. That and they’re the funniest, like seriously, they’re the reason I love Hawaii Five O. That and because it’s set in Hawaii of course.

G and Sam

These guys could not be more different and yet they are best friends. They trust each other completely and that’s why they’re able to work with each other so well.

Do you know rare that is? For any friendship? To have complete trust in someone else?

I don’t know if it’s because they’re government agents and they go through a lot together… I mean there’s a lot of life and death situations involved. I guess in the process you can’t help but trust each other.

Thor and Captain America

This last one is stepping out of the realm of television but I had to mention them. They were so great in Avengers 2. I feel like out of the team they understand each other the most because they’re both from an old world one way or another.

Cap America is a leader and he has to lead the Avengers and that can be … I don’t know tiring sometimes. Whereas in Thor he has a friend in him (aha) and I think Cap needs that. He needs a friend in the 21st century.

So yes I think they have a superhero bromance.

There are more bromances that I have missed like Cap America and the Winter Solider (so beautiful) and Woody and Buzz… there are many but hey I could always do a part two…

Gabriel is like that dark storm cloud looming in the distance, ready to drench you with rain at any moment in Hawaii Five-0 Season 6, and he’s going to be coming back into focus sooner (as in next month) rather than later. What will that mean for Chin, Kono, and Adam?

Right now, in Hawaii Five-0 Season 6, Adam is serving time, having accepted a deal for 18 months, rather than risking going to trial and losing and facing five years behind bars. So for now, Kono is wearing his wedding ring on a necklace around her neck and visiting him, and he assures her he’s fine. Being in prison is a place where it helps that people know who his father is when it comes to him getting space from the other inmates and being safe in that regard.

Unfortunately, being locked up does not mean that Gabriel can’t also stop by to visit Adam, as the man threatened Kono’s life by telling him he had people outside their house, waiting for a call from him in the next 10 minutes. That was pretty much the only (and, for Gabriel, best) way to get Adam to listen. Meanwhile, Kono’s much-needed break in the last episode may have been interrupted when she and Chin stumbled upon guys burying a body, but as her cousin reminded her, they have guards looking out for her husband and as long as everything went according to plan, he’d be home next year.

Ian Anthony Dale and Grace Park in Hawaii Five-0

But will that all be true? According to TV Guide, showrunner Peter Lenkov has revealed that the a Hawaii Five-0 Season 6 episode slated to air in April is going to have “‘significant’ implications for Adam and Kono’s relationship,” while also talking about Gabriel’s upcoming appearances. Will that episode deal with Gabriel visiting Adam in prison, or could it be about something else that happens between now and then?

There are quite a few episodes before then, however. There’s the Valentine’s Day one, airing February 12, “Hoa ‘inea” (“Misery Loves Company”), which will see the team investigate a double homicide involving marital infidelity and remembering their disastrous experiences for the romantic holiday. (And according to the press release, someone’s getting a black eye and someone else is heading for a breakup.)

Daniel Dae Kim and Christopher Sean in Hawaii Five-0

TV Guide describes that episode as “somewhat lighthearted,” which is going to be what the series needs since later in February is when Gabriel makes his return, and according to Lenkov, what happens is big (as is another episode in this arc that will be airing as the one right before the season finale).

“He and Chin finally face off in a real significant way. He comes back in a way that, it’s do or die time for us.”

That makes it sound like when Gabriel stopped Chin (as seen in the photo below) when Abby was with him will just be child’s play compared to what’s coming. And given their history, it’s probably something that was inevitable. Expect “a lot of action and some big surprises,” the showrunner teased from the arc with Gabriel.

In other Hawaii Five-0 news, TVLine has reported guest stars for two upcoming episodes. First, there’s the return of Silicon Valley’sMartin Starr’s hacker character, Adam “Toast” Charles. As should be no surprise (and reveals nothing), he is “back for a big case that requires his hacking skills,” shared Lenkov.

There’s also Olga Fonda (The Vampire Diaries and Agent X) guest starring as Anna Novik, “a spy who uses deadly tactics to obtain important stolen intel” and ends up on the team’s radar.

Hawaii Five-0 Season 6 airs Fridays at 9 p.m. on CBS.

H50 3

Even though there’s no new episode of Hawaii Five-0 tonight, we’re looking ahead to the show’s return. The next installment of the CBS drama will be titled “Hoa ‘Inea (Misery Loves Company),” and it is set to air just two days before Valentine’s Day. However, instead of showing each member of the team’s romantic and happy dates, Hawaii Five-0 will be giving viewers the wacky and straight-up “disastrous” experiences that Chin, Steve, Danny, and the rest of the show’s characters go through.

As the photos below indicate, things won’t go as planned for the Five-0 team on this Valentine’s Day, as each of them ends up in a different kind of difficult situation. From the pictures below, Lou appears to be enjoying the best date out of all of them, but the description for this episode makes it clear that his romantic evening won’t go exactly as he’s hoping. Frankly, I just want to know how Chin ends up strolling through what looks like a hotel in nothing but a towel:

As Five-0 investigates a double homicide involving marital infidelity, McGarrett and the team recount their disastrous Valentine’s Day experiences.

In addition to the episode description and the images, we know that guest stars for this upcoming hour will include Taylor Wily (Kamekona), Dennis Chun (Sgt. Duke Lukela), Lili Simmons (Melissa Armstrong), Julie Benz (Inspector Anny Dunn), Erica Shaffer, (Tessa Foxton), and James Koons (Michael Foxton).

Hawaii Five-0 airs Fridays at 9 p.m. on CBS. New episodes return on Friday, Feb. 12, starting with “Hoa ‘Inea (Misery Loves Company).” Check out photos from the Valentine’s Day-themed installment below:
