Simon Cocks March 22, 2011 0

We’ve been without Hawaii Five-0 for a month and while this episode (‘Na Me’e Laua Na Paio’) featured a confrontation between Wo Fat and Steve (making it something worth looking forward to), it ended

At this point in its first season, Hawaii Five-0 seems perfectly content to rely on relatively straightforward standalone plots without much progression to the season-long arc. (That, in itself, isn’t necessarily a bad thing…

Hawaii Five-0 1.17 “Powa Maka Moana” Review

Simon Cocks February 15, 2011 0

Just like last week, Hawaii Five-0 provided us with a fine but unspectacular standalone offering last night. (Although, this was arguably a little more disappointing than all the jungle-based action.) ‘Powa Maka Moana’wasn’t an

It may have taken a short break, but Hawaii Five-0 has returned to our TV screens and there’ll be an episode each week from now on (at least for a little while). Last night’s

Hawaii Five-0 1.15 “Kai e’e” Review

Simon Cocks January 24, 2011 0

In many ways, ‘Kai e’e'is just the type of episode that I want from Hawaii Five-0. I’m almost certain that I have mentioned in previous reviews that, for me, one of the main attractions

This week provided a below average episode from the most obviously mediocre sitcom currently on television. Honestly, I’m really not hard to please when it comes to comedy – all I need is something

Hawaii Five-0 1.14 “He Kane Hewa’ole” Review

Simon Cocks January 18, 2011 0

Last night’s unspectacular episode of Hawaii Five-0 (“He Kane Hewa’ole”) provided exactly what (at this point) we know that this series can do well, a moderately intriguing standalone story. However interesting it was though,

The way I see things, every television season comes with at least one new comedy that fills that ‘perfectly average sitcom’spot (last year’s was Accidentally on Purpose). I’d be surprised if anybody truly sees

With the past two or three episodes in particular, my perception of the kind of show that Hawaii Five-0 is aiming to be have changed. I mean, when it became clear that Steve’s sister

So, how well did Hawaii Five-0 tackle a Christmas episode? In my opinion – very successfully. Not only did the show give us the best gift that it possibly could with the return of
