(new) Hawaii Five-0 on CBS

the new Hawaii Five-0 on CBS

Danny's (Scott Caan) life before Steve (Alex O'Loughlin) comes back to haunt him in the next episode of CBS's long-running police procedural series "Hawaii Five-0." What new perspectives and realizations will this give him and what assistance will he require from his old and new teams?

The official synopsis for the episode titled "Wehe 'ana (Prelude)" states that Danny will be hard-pressed to protect a coma patient who is showing signs of waking up. The patient turns out to be the key witness in his last case with the Honolulu Police Department (HPD) before he was recruited into the Five-0 Task Force.

It seems that this key witness has something very important to say that can incriminate someone who does not want to be incriminated. A promotional image for the episode shows Danny struggling with a female nurse, who may have made an attempt to end the coma patient's life.

Will staying with the patient to ensure his safety create significant shifts in Danny's motivation as a law enforcer? Will it make him miss his old job or will it instead give him some much-needed alone time to reminisce about the reasons why he accepted the offer from Five-0 in the first place?

And as for Steve, it seems that the two of them are working at what looks to be a boy's bedroom when the call about the coma patient comes, because, in another image, Steve is left to finish the job on his own. Could this room be for Danny's son, Charlie (Zach Sulzbach)? And can Steve put it all together by himself before he has to run and bail Danny out of trouble?

Meanwhile, there are only three episodes left in the current season, and CBS has revealed that Steve's life will once again be put in peril when Five-0 tries to rescue a group of young girls from a sex trafficking ring that Steve and his crew have been tracking a while now. How will this incident affect Steve's health and well-being when the eighth season rolls around? The case will also have a deep impact on Kono (Grace Park), who will, in turn, make a life-changing decision.

"Hawaii Five-0" season 7 episode 23 airs Friday, April 28 at 9 p.m. EDT on CBS.

“Hawaii Five-0,” the original TV show, and the “Mars” miniseries are on home video this week.

“Hawaii Five-0: The Complete Series” (CBS/Paramount, 1968-80, 72 discs, 278 episodes, featurette, music video, episode and series promos). A police procedural set and filmed in Hawaii, this was a hugely successful TV series that ran 12 seasons from the late 1960s through 1980, with tough characters, a catchy title tune and pointed dialogue, some of which entered the national lexicon (“Book ’em Danno!”). And this was 30-40 years before CBS’s Friday-night remake.

Stoic, square-jawed Jack Lord stars as police detective Steve McGarrett, with youthful James MacArthur as his sidekick Danny “Danno” Williams. They lead a team of cops adept at taking down all kinds of criminals, occasionally veering into the world of espionage, especially when McGarrett’s nemesis Wo Fat (Khigh Dhiegh) is involved. Among the many guest stars are Christopher Walken, Martin Sheen, William Shatner, Patty Duke, Leslie Nielsen, Sal Mineo, Sam Elliott, Helen Hayes, Cyd Charisse and Jeff Daniels, among others.

“Mars” (National Geographic, 2016, three discs, six episodes, featurettes). In 2033, an international crew of astronauts leads a maiden voyage to Mars, paving the way for future colonization. It is entertaining and beautifully photographed but is a somewhat uneasy mix of a fictional storyline and documentary elements.

“Home Fires: The Complete Second Season” (PBS, 2016, two discs, six episodes). Soap opera informed by history drives this British series set during World War II, with this season taking place from June-September 1940. The focus is on the Women’s Institute, a real-life organization that encouraged women to become involved in the war effort. Francesca Annis heads the cast.

“800 Words: Season 2, Part 1” (Acorn, 2016, two discs, eight episodes, featurette). An Australian widower and newspaper columnist (Erik Thomson) impulsively moved his two teenagers to a New Zealand coastal town in the first season. He’s still trying to fit in with his quirky neighbors while looking for steady work locally. This is a warm, amusing family show. (The title refers to the number of words in the average column.)

“John Lewis: Get in the Way” (PBS, 2017). This is an hourlong profile of the Georgia congressman whose résumé includes tireless work as a civil rights leader before he became a legislator. This documentary is told in his own voice from interviews he’s given over the past 20 years.

“Hell Below” (Smithsonian, 2016, two discs, six episodes). This documentary series looks at submarine patrols of World War II and uses re-enactments filmed on authentic-era subs to explain strategies and technical developments that developed throughout the war.

“Tangled: Before Ever After” (Disney, 2017, four animated shorts; journal). Rapunzel (voiced by Mandy Moore) postpones her marriage to Eugene and escapes the castle with her lady-in-waiting for a pre-wedding adventure. This hourlong TV cartoon is a sequel to the theatrical “Tangled” (2010) and kicked off a TV series that airs on the Disney Channel.

The husband and I are very frustrated with their having Mayor Hamilton a villain on NCIS New Orleans. He’s always Brian of Wings to us, and we do not enjoy these episodes. We enjoy loving laughs with our Wings reruns, then we have to see this lousy characterization on NCIS. Please, make him an undercover something or other.

Titled "Wehe 'ana (Prelude)," the show's 23rd episode will give fans a glimpse of Danny's life before Five-0. According to the official synopsis, a coma patient, who also served as a key witness from Danny's previous case, begins to show signs of waking. While protecting the witness from any danger, Danny recalls his last HPD case before he crossed paths with Steve (Alex O'Loughlin) and became a member of Five-0.

Danny and Steve's close friendship is one of the highlights of the series, but fans still have not seen how the two characters met. In the upcoming episode, the CBS procedural will finally reveal how the legendary bromance between Danny and Steve started. It will also showcase how their connection with each other goes even deeper than fans initially thought. It turns out Danny was having a difficult time dealing with his new life in Hawaii in the weeks before he was introduced to Steve. Additionally, the installment will explore what could have happened if Danny had not joined Five-0.

Showrunner Peter Lenkov recently caught up with TV Guide and he shared a few insights about the said episode about Steve and Danny. "McGarrett coming into his life, despite what Danny will ever say, was the best thing that ever could have happened and came at the right moment," he said.

Lenkov further explained why the two officers need each other, especially back when they first met. "Danny was floundering a little bit as a cop. ... McGarrett was his lifeline. You realize how much they need each other and how important they are in each other's lives."


The seventh season of "Hawaii Five-0" airs every Friday night at 9 p.m. EDT on CBS.

"Hawaii Five-0" season 7 won't be back until the last week of April but the police procedural drama series has some pretty exciting stuff in store for fans. Spoilers for the upcoming episode reveal that a fan-favorite star from another hit show will make an appearance in episode 23, and she's going to have something to do with Danny (Scott Caan).

Titled "Wehe 'ana" which means "Prelude," episode 23 will feature "Orange Is the New Black" actress Lori Petty as a nurse with some prior connection to Danny, who is going to enter his biggest storyline in the show thus far.

The past several episodes of the season had some great stuff for several other characters on the show but not Danny, so knowing that he's going to be the focus of the episode sounds exciting.

The synopsis for the upcoming episode reads, "Danny protects a coma patient showing signs of waking who was the key witness from his last HPD case before he met Steve (Alex O'Loughlin) and joined Five-0."

Petty guest stars as Nurse Jenny Kitson while Michael Paul Chan will make an appearance as Danny's former HPD captain, Tanaka.

Meanwhile, the previous episode got enticing as the Five-0 task force faced some of their biggest challenges ever. Episode 22 saw the team being taken as hostages by dangerous people after tracking down an opponent on the Island of Lanai. The episode also featured a different scene where the members of the team handled another investigation which dealt with a mysterious murder case.

In the last episode, Steve dealt with a case that took place in U.S.S. Arizona. As he worked on the investigation, he unexpectedly uncovered the role of his grandfather in Pearl Harbor back in the 1940s.

"Hawaii Five-0" season 7 episode 23 airs on Friday, April 28 at 9 p.m. EDT on CBS.
