HAWAII FIVE-0 Finally, it has been aired in the UK.
The episode starts with some guy doing some kind of gyrating strip routine in front of a load of women. So far I'd call it 'America-five-0'. Perhaps that will change.
The 4 girls are in a car going somewhere when they are rammed. our first Hawaiian is seen. He is shot dead, so that counts him out = 0 Hawaiians?
Then the music starts and we see the cast: an oriental guy and a Japanese guy. Still no Hawaiians?
6 guest stars, none of them Hawaiian. I might be wrong and I don't mind if anybody corrects me.
We heard the Hawaiian word 'aloha' spoken. The first clue as to what country they are in.
The scene is set. a pretty girl gets out of a swimming pool. It is a big house & garden owned by... wait for it... an american on the sea front, once populated by wild creatures.
Summer's relative is kamerkona. I assume he is of Hawaiian origin, or part thereof? (haha, since when would Summer Glau be related to him? She has wide eyes, his are obscured). He gets a gun out. So it would seem that Hawaii is awash wish guns just like America? Or is this purely for our entertainment and the citizens of Hawaii don't have any guns like Europe?
Summer/Maggie cross-legged on the settee, good touch.
In this episode, is Summer supposed to be a citizen of Hawaii? If so, we find that someone else also carries a gun in Hawaii (the man who originally attacked her father).
The investigators go to some guys house, he turns up and one of them hits him with a gnome - is he of Hawaiian origin cross-pollination? (not the gnome, the guy).
I don't watch Hawaii Five-0, so I don't know who the older guy chatting up the older woman in the restaurant is. No doubt relevant somewhere along the line. You know.... he stalked her in a supermarket. (I had an impending vision of summer pushing a trolley with a crooked wheel but phew, it never happened).
Ah, the woman is the detective's mother. Those 2 detective guys really think they are cool!!!
In the medical centre, the medical guy is easily recognisable from the series Heroes.
Is it true that there are not any fat, ugly, horrendous women walking the beaches of Hawaii in skimpy beach wear?
What about men?
Are we supposed to believe that the Hawaiian detectives had not heard of Lua martial arts and that it was so secret that even they knew nothing about it despite Hawaii having a long long long history?
I took this opportunity to look at the martial arts guys, and as far as I can see, they don't have nice big eyes like Summer.
The first camcorder video we saw of 2 guys fighting in a swimming pool was laughable. They weren't even punching or chopping each other. More like naughty boy slapping, if that. It was so funny, I laughed my head off.
The detective with the tattoos pretended he was typing. I feel that even typing should be made authentic. It's pretty obvious he wasn't, as he went diddle diddle diddle diddle diddle diddle left right left right left right with his index and middle fingers. He never even gave it any thought as to what he should be pressing. Obtaining information usually involves pressing certain keys for certain responses. "Come back Penelope from Criminal Minds, all is forgiven".
I see the baddies used a stun gun on Summer to disable her chip lol.
The next time we see Summer, she is tied to a chair wearing jeans and terminator boots.
Am I expected to believe that that many guys have girlfriends by the poolside who relish in seeing other women fight to the death?
I'm sorry to have to say this but there is not a moron in the world that would go after an armed police officer with a knife. Can anybody explain why the bad martial arts guy did that?
Hero Chinanam carries Summer to a waiting vehicle.
She wakes up in hospital and her loving uncle comes to see her. He said 'sister'. is she his sister, not his niece?
Would I watch it again? No, probably not.
Would I watch Hawaii five-0 again? No, definitely not.
The entire series should be renamed 'Hawaii occupied by Americans and other people Five-0'.
Summer was fine - a nice place to act and have a holiday at the same time!!
