(new) Hawaii Five-0 on CBS

the new Hawaii Five-0 on CBS

Who on Hawaii Five-0 is Expendable? What haunts Legends of Tomorrow‘s demonologist? Is an NCIS team losing an agent to zombies? How “engaging” is the Nashville series finale? Read on for answers to those questions plus teases from other shows.

Any word on if Danny will be in the 200th episode of Hawaii Five-0? He misses a few episodes each season, and I hope this isn’t one of them!
As showrunner Peter M. Lenkov shared on Twitter, yes, Scott Caan will be in the milestone episode. Which is a good thing, since….

Any news on Hawaii Five-0‘s Steve/Danny to share with us? –Mary
In Episode 200, McDanno’s restaurant “is going to have a soft open,” Lenkov told me at Comic-Con (here he was promoting CBS’ Magnum P.I. reboot). And that in turn will lead to “a big turning point with regards to their future and the restaurant.” Bonus scoop: Already looking ahead to Five-0’s midseason finale, Lenkov reveals, “We’re doing a big sort of Expendables episode,” in the vein of the action franchise that teams up Stallone, Schwarzenegger et al. “We’re bringing back a lot of people that over the years have helped us.”

Supernatural‘s Dean is supposed to be awake and aware of Michael’s possession. Will we get any internal Dean vs. Michael scenes? –Adder
“We’ll see Dean putting up a fight, but it’s a really hard fight to win,” co-showrunner Andrew Dabb says. “But Dean’s a fighter. He’s going to try to get out even if it doesn’t quite go his way.” As for how that struggle will look, visually, Dabb says, “We have a couple of different approaches to it. Some are very much like he looks into a mirror, and some are going into people’s heads. It’s dependent on the story.”

Any inside info on the Nashville series finale? Please tell me Juliette finally gets her happy ending after all these years. —Shannon
We’ve been sworn to secrecy about the exact outcomes for all of the Nashies, but we can tell you this: The finale includes (in no particular order): sheep… tricked-out headphones… and an engagement ring.

Is Daryl “Chill” Mitchell leaving NCIS: New Orleans for his new gig at Fear the Walking Dead? Or is this just another side project? We love our Triple P! –Hollie
Not to worry, Patton will be around to help track bad guys and solve crimes during NOLA Season 5 (premiering Tuesday, Sept. 25t). Mitchell is able to fit both shows into his schedule.

Arrowverse Double Wedding

Do you have any information on Iris’ handwritten vows from last year’s Arrowverse crossover? Will The Flash‘s Nora use that to somehow prove her identity to Barry and Iris? —Kendra
Ah, a fan of my Pinned Tweet from eight months ago. Well, after the Flash team’s visit to out Comic-Con suite, I remembered to ask showrunner Todd Helbing if, in fact, we will see those vows again. Perhaps in Nora’s possession. And his answer was… nope. [Sigh]

Can Legends of Tomorrow fans look forward to any new romances this season? –Dee
There’s sort of “new” one — in that EP Phil Klemmer told me there is a plan to establish a romance of Constantine’s that presumably took place between the end of his eponymous NBC series and the character’s arrival in the Arrowverse. That relationship, with a man, will have had tragic overtones, and as such still haunts John.

Matt! Congrats on the new job title! Can you use your new superpowers to find anything out on the Timeless front? #RenewTimeless —M
There is zero news on the wrap-up movie front, so I instead shall emply my powers to segue into a related scoop: One of your favorite Timeless guest stars, Joseph Lee Anderson (aka NASCAR driver Wendell Scott), is set to guest-star in the Season 2 premiere of Shawn Ryan’s S.W.A.T. as Tony, a fit and capable Metro cop who is Street’s new partner. But wow, talk about oil and water! Tony believes that the best work he does happens with his gun in his holster, and he has little patience for tales of S.W.A.T. bravery — until he witnesses Street utilize his particular set of skills to pull off a big save.

Is there going to be a Season 3 of Freakish on Hulu? —Andy
I am told that Hulu is done with Freakish and now is focusing on other AwesomenessTV titles such as All Night and the upcoming PEN15.

Anything about Lucifer? –Paola
Well, there of course is our Comic-Con video Q&A with the Devil himself, Tom Ellis; always worth a rewatch. But as for fresh scoop, I’ve learned that the Season 4 premiere on Netflix will introduce a priest who is fervently working a conspiracy theory about Lucifer Morningstar’s true identity AND his truly evil agenda. Bonus scoop: Facebook Watch isn’t confirming anything, but a well-placed source tells me that the aforementioned Mr. Ellis is set to (ahem) “woo” Catherine Zeta-Jones in the upcoming series Queen America, which was created by his fiancée Meaghan Oppenheimer.

The Expanse Season 4 AmazonI love your site, and I love The Expanse. When it moves to Amazon, can we expect the new season next year? And any idea if they will release the new episodes all at once, or a week at a time? —Drew
I asked around for you, Drew, and was told that it’s simply “too early to tell” what the Season 4 release timetable/plan is.

This BTS photo from The Good Doctor has me confused. I thought Dr. Kalu (played in Season 1 by Chuku Modu) was gone? –Nan
A series rep tells Inside Line that Modu will return for the Season 2 premiere (airing Monday, Sept. 24), but had no details on future appearances.

Is there any way for you to find out if Castle Rock is going to air in Canada? –Brenda
UPDATE: Since previously non-answering this Q, I have learned that Castle Rock can be seen on Space and CraveTV. You may thank me with poutine.

Do you have anything on the kidnapping of NCIS‘ Director Vance? Are we going to pick up where the show left off or will there be a time jump? –Karen
I am hearing that Season 16 will pick up preeeetty much where we left off. I mean, there’s certainly no “Six Months Later and Here Is Vance With a ZZ Top-Like Beard”-type time jump.

Last week I had the great pleasure of working on Season nine of Hawaii Five-0. The crew and cast are just incredible – warm, welcoming and great fun to be around. Special thanks to my stunt double Todd Sells who is one of the coolest, warmest, most professional people with whom you could hope to work.

We spent a long, hot day on the roof. And when Todd wasn’t taking a dive off the roof on countless takes, he was generous enough to capture this little B-role footage of me ‘terrorizing the neighborhood kids with my shotgun’.

If you know me- or if you’re a frequent Hi-Top reader- you know my interests and hot takes extend far beyond the world of sports. You also know that, contrary to the viewing habits and interests of most people in my demographic, I love me some network TV dramas. And sitting high a top the list is none other than Hawaii Five-0.

This show has everything you need for your Friday night viewing pleasure. Overly convoluted over-arching story lines that never see resolution. Every actor and crew member who ever did an episode of Lost. A borderline superhero main character in Five-0 Commander Steve Williams. And, the official patron saint of every 1990’s ensemble heist movie, and master of intentional- un-intentional comedy…Scotty Caan.

This guy is a treat to watch every week- yeah, I might be the only guy on the planet who has watched every single Hawaii Five-0 episode….no big deal. Caan really pulls off the likeable, but dick-y sidekick to Commander McGarrett, and the two of them carry the show…which has been renewed for another season.

Almost immediately when watching this show, I developed the opinion that Caan’s shirts were unnecessarily tight-fitting. You be the judge:

I get it…the guy’s got a good bod, but c’mon, Danno. I know you were a cop back in Jersey, and family circumstances led you to the Big Island, but c’mon man. It’s been 10 years. You’re in Hawaii. Relax a little. Clearly the boss doesn’t hold you to a strict dress code…he’s wearing t-shirts.

This makes no sense for the character or plot of the show, so it always baffled me. My official theory/H50 hot take was: Scott Caan insists his character wear tight button down shirts.

Now, getting a solid answer on this, for most mere mortals, would be impossible. But, when you’re the #magnate, the CEO of a Multi-dollar Internet Empire, you get to meet the right people.

I was able to speak (through a friend) this weekend with a big-wig on the set of H50- a person with unique and direct knowledge of the costume department. And this person had some interesting things to say:

Below is a string between my friend (as dictated by me) and our source:



Some people throw out Hot Takes for the sake of throwing them out there. They’re trying to get some cheap buzz on the topic of the day.

That’s the difference between all the phonies out there and me- I don’t give Hot takes…I live Hot Takes.

They don’t even have to be about something that anyone cares about…I just can’t help the takes. It’s like…it’s an inborn skill…I couldn’t stop it if I tried.

Combine the Hot Takes, with tremendous instincts and insight….and you know what you got??? LE CAPITAINE.

It’s the season finale, for which Hawaii Five-0 likes to raise its game. Apart from some nonsense about the restaurant – to which we’ll come back – the action starts with a mysterious black shape looming into view just off the Honolulu beach. It’s quickly revealed to be a rogue Russian nuclear-powered submarine. Fantastic! In every sense of the word.

But what do they want? Steve, for one, is not willing to welcome his new Russian overlords, and after an (inadvertently comic?) interlude when he tries to communicate with the crew using semaphore, he commandeers a small boat and sails out to the submarine, demanding to speak to the Captain. As American warships surround the sub, and helicopters fly overhead, world peace rests on the appealingly broad shoulders of Commander McGarrett of the Five-0 Task Force.

Once on board, the officer in charge takes Steve to the captain; or, at any rate, the corpse of the Captain. There was, he is told, a mutiny on board, at the behest of submariners who wanted to defect to America. Although the uprising has been suppressed its leader, Petrov, waited until the submarine was close to Hawaii then escaped through a torpedo port and is now on Oahu. Grover’s response to being told this – “What?!” – is the only sensible one. But after the Russian consul is leveraged by Steve and Danny into providing a bit of information, the Petrov chase is on: he seems to be after a regular all-American couple who live on the island.

And at this point the show turns into The Americans, because the couple, who live as Lee and Nancy – someone’s research took them no further than well-known singing duos – are, in fact, GRU sleeper agents in deep cover. Or were GRU sleeper etc., because by the time the Five-0 gets to their house “Lee” and “Nancy” are very dead, having been tortured first; which presumably means that Petrov was after information on someone else. Where will this end? With a spectacular season-ender of a knockdown fight between Petrov and Steve, that’s where: they kick seven shades out of each other, occasionally making use of office equipment; then fall through a second-floor window onto a table and do it all over again. Wonderful.

Meantime, in return for $250,000 cash money stuffed into suitcases, Steve and Danny have taken on Kamekona and Flippa as partners in their restaurant. “I’m gonna go kill myself”, mutters Danny. Unsurprisingly, though, Kame knows more about the restaurant business than the two of them. Could they turn this money pit into a viable enterprise? Next season for that, presumably; and for further developments in respect of Adam, given that Tami has found the gun which killed his sister in his house. Assuming he’ll return. Hell, assuming any of them return: there’s no official word yet on contract renewals, but one would guess that certain undertakings were given before CBS decided to greenlight a ninth year. I thought this season was generally fine, if a little below the standard set by the unexpectedly excellent seventh. But the show coped well with the loss of two major characters and the integration of their replacements.
