I hope everyone on 5-O is cured of jaundice before next season.

Also, I saw a tiki on the last show. It was during the luau on the left side ofthe screen while they were opening the imu.
EDIT: It was my TV. No jaundice.

I'm having a hard time getting into it - I still look at the new McGarrett guy and see the vampire guy from Moonlight! Makes it tough to take him seriously. And MAN! Is Caan a little dude or WHAT?! He's got to be a full foot shorter than McGarrett! Interesting casting there.

What's this about Wo Fat - I thought that was a restaurant in Honolulu?! Which came first?!

The "Wo Fat Chop Suey" building with its pagoda-styled roof has been a Chinatown landmark since 1882. The building was rebuilt after being destroyed twice by fire in 1886 and 1900.

Once a thriving restaurant opened by Wo Fat, a Chinese baker, it would be the oldest restaurant in Hawaii if it was still operating. It was instrumental in popularizing Cantonese cuisine to America. The father of modern China, Sun Yat-Sen reportedly dined there often while attending Iolani School.

I went to Wo Fat’s once, around 2002, to see some local punk rock bands (I think Grapefruit was one.) who had rented it out for a show. I remember the music was very loud and the bartender really hated being there. It is closed now, but the building is still there.

Thanks PR - that answered my question and then some! I didn't realize the place had been around so long. I ate there in 1979 but I can't say I remember much as I was sixteen (yuk!) and was playing at being a vegetarian!

Al Harrington is on tonight's episode airing now. The first old series cast member on the new show?

I have missed most of this show. Tonight is the first time I saw a whole episode from start to finish. Kind of a hokey storyline, but not as bad as other shows on TV. So I take it the missing/now replaced $10,000...will roll into a future episode?

I kinda like the McGarrett guy.

I wasn't going to post this but it's been a while since anyone has ranted about the downfall of tiki and Jimmy Buffett's ushering in of Armageddon. Heard about this a week or so ago. Heh heh.

From Entertainment Weekly: “Hawaii Five-0 scoop: Jimmy Buffett to guest star”

Jimmy Buffett: Pilot in a tropical climate? Yeah, we’ll buy that.

EW has learned exclusively that the singer/songwriter/avid aviator will guest star in an upcoming episode of Hawaii Five-0. Buffett will play a veteran pilot who’s a pal of Lt. Commander Joe White (Terry O’Quinn), and he helps Five-0 rescue one of its own from a sticky situation.

That is ironic LoungeShark!!!

I have been trying to watch and support this show, but I find the writing to be very weak and it is not holding my attention. Mostly watching now just for the scenery. Hope it improves.

As long as he's acting and not performing "Margaritaville", I'm good. I love the new 5-0 despite it's unpopularity here and all the tiki nerd peer pressure for not liking it. If you follow the story very closely, there is a subtle plot thread that went through the entire season last year, and continues this year....but you have to watch it every week to know what's up.

I would agree with you on this. The underlying thread storyline has been pretty good. Like others have said though it does get kinda predictable at times. Originally, I didn't think Hawaii in and of itself played a big enough "character" but they have done a good job of making sure the stories rely on the location, too as the series progressed. What do you think of them adding so many new characters to 5-0? This last one (the homeland security gal) almost seemed like a female version of Dano last week the way she went back and forth with McGarret. And honestly, their odd couple bickering is already a bit much. There's gotta be a drinking game in this...every time they bicker? do a shot. every time you see McGarret's tat? do a shot. Every time the shaved ice guy/criminal informant slips them info? do a shot. you get the picture.

If I could handle the Dane Cook episode, I can almost handle Mr. Buffett.

I like the series, I just wish they would stop adding new characters like you said and focus on the ones they already have. As for McGarret's lady friends I thought his Naval Officer friend was cool, I'd rather see more of her than the Homeland security woman or the CIA woman.

Killing off Kelly Hu was a mistake and they need much more Kono this season.

Other than those things, I'm happy with it.
