LB Sees the Most Recent Episode of HAWAII FIVE-0

by Larry Brody

One of the most recent episodes anyway.

No, I can’t remember what it was about. But TV Guide can: “Five-0 investigates when a teen girl is murdered by a professional hit man. Steve and his team must first determine why she was a target before they can locate her killer.” Sound a tad familiar, police procedural lovers?

The Good:

  • It has some fantastic looking women.
  • Scott Caan
  • Scenery’s as gorgeous as ever

The Not-So-Good:

  • Been there, done that (literally)
  • Can’t imagine why anyone wants to see this kind of thing anymore

The Verdict:

  • Not a bad show but has even less of a reason to be called HAWAII FIVE-0 than it did when I watched it in Season One.
