Up Next on Hawaii Five-0 “Pe’epe’e Kānaka”

This week’s Hawaii Five-0 raises an interesting question – “How well do you know your neighbours?”

Think about it- whenever an unimaginable tragedy strikes, the media is quick to interview those in close proximity to the perpetrator. Those interviews usually reveal a common theme about an unassuming suspect – a nice quiet neighbour who never made a fuss.

In today’s world of gated communities, six foot high privacy fences, and a societal “fear of strangers”, could you, with any kind of certainty, say that those who live close to you aren’t up to something untoward?

On a more fun note, this is Hawaii Five-0 stunt coordinator Jeff Cadiente’s (“The Crow, “24″) second outing as a director.  That’s sure to mean some fun action sequences!

Sunny Weekend sounds like the name of a Connery-era Bond Girl, doesn’t it? She may not be tangling with 007, but “Sunny Weekend ” seems to be Hawaii Five-0′s latest adversary in the “same day” viewer numbers.  As a matter of fact, all Friday shows have suffered in the past few weeks as warmer Spring weather seems to have kept viewers outside instead of home watching television.  But the good news comes in the form of the Live+7 DVR figures for the Fan-built Five-0 episode, “Ho’i Hou (Reunited),” supporting the idea that viewers are out playing on Friday, but watching the show later on.

“Ho’i Hou” initially brought in a 1.4 overnight rating in the 18-49 demo. A week’s worth of DVR viewing brought that demo rating up to 2.3 — a 64% increase.  Total viewers rose from an overnight figure of 9.674 million up to a seven-day tally of 13.028 million, adding 3.354 million viewers  for a 35% increase.

Hawaii Five-0 is searching for locations

April 18th, 2014 by

We occasionally see a comment on social media from someone living on Oahu who has received “the note” on their front door.  ”The note” being the correspondence left behind after a location scout from Hawaii Five-0 spied a home they might want to film in, only to find the residents aren’t home.  And we’re always a bit surprised when someone says “not interested.”  After all, who wouldn’t want to the opportunity to meet Alex O’Loughlin, Daniel Dae Kim, Grace Park and Scott Caan, and have their home featured on a television show with a world-wide audience? But after reading this article from the Star Advertiser, their reticence to disrupt their lives is a bit more understandable.

From Mike Gordon – Honolulu Star Advertiser

The actors are on vacation, production crew members have joined other local film and TV projects, and the Diamond Head soundstage is buttoned up.

But even though “Hawaii Five-0″ is on hiatus until July, with the final episodes of the current season still to air on CBS, location manager Timmy Chinn is already scouting for next season.

It’s the never-ending cycle of a successful TV series, Chinn said. And he could use your help (again).

He needs more locations: more houses, more restaurants, more storefronts, more warehouses. He’s got a list.

“I would like to find more upscale mansions,” he said. “We want something on the beach. A school, too. I’m looking for a school. We’re looking for a very nice conference room up in the air, like a penthouse conference room with a view.”

Finding a mansion isn’t the hard part, he said. The hard part is finding a doorbell. Or a door to knock on.

But once he reaches the owner, it’s not uncommon to discover that the house has an agent.

Dozens of homes are so sought-after that their owners are represented by management companies, Chinn said.

This season, “Five-0″ shot more in Kahala, Kaimuki and Palolo because the production headquarters moved from the old Hono­lulu Advertiser building at the start of Kapiolani Boulevard to the state film studio at Diamond Head. It didn’t pose many problems.

“We forget we are in Hawaii,” Chinn said. “We moved maybe three or four miles. It’s opened up new neighborhoods to us.”

The show used big exteriors this season as well. It opened with a helicopter taking off from inside Aloha Stadium and will finish with an episode that required the closure of Kala­kaua Avenue in Wai­kiki, from the point where Kuhio Avenue branches off of Kala­kaua up to Lewers Street. On a Sunday morning. For three hours.

The show uses hundreds of locations each season, including 60 to 70 houses.

“Five-0″ sets up one day, shoots one or two scenes the next day and then cleans up. It can be traumatic for the homeowner, Chinn said.

“We are a huge show,” he said.

“We are in your living room. We are in your kitchen. There are people all over the house. But when they yell cut, we’re gone. They yell cut, and we pack up everything and we are out in half an hour and you’re going, ‘What just happened?’”

And all that for about a minute or two of actual screen time.

Some locations, especially homes, become recurring sets that are used several times a season.

While the first time is usually exciting for the owners, the experience can become tiresome, and the onus is on “Five-0″ to keep the property owner happy, Chinn said.

“Over time you get to know us,” he said. “You know my face. You know the set decoration guys. But then we are gone.”

Chinn decided he could improve the relationship. He wants to not just give property owners a place at a Sunset on the Beach premiere or at the season wrap party, but to also invite them to hang out with his production team during the events.

“You want to get them more involved personally,” he said. “I imagine making them part of the ‘Hawaii Five-0′ family. If your house is part of the show, you are part of the crew.”

AND that’s a wrap …

Hawaii Five-0 Season 4 Finale Spoiler!

Grover and McGarrett ep 416

Grover and McGarrett ep 416

 

It’s hard to believe that the end of Season 4 is only three episodes away and it looks like trouble for one of the newest cast additions.

TV Guide teases -

“I need some Hawaii Five-0 scoop! — Helen
The usually straight-laced Grover will steal from McGarrett’s playbook when his daughter is kidnapped in the season finale. “As renegade and out of control as [Grover] thought McGarrett was in the [season premiere], he goes even further in this one,” executive producer Peter Lenkov says. “He doesn’t have a free pass like Five-0 does, so there’s going to be consequences. [But] sometimes you have to turn the badge around to get the job done.” Fortunately, I hear the consequences have a silver lining that will play out next season.”

What do you think about the addition of Chi McBride’s “Lou Grover” character? Yea, Nay, or We’ll see?

 

Initial Friday ratings show overall Spring Fever slump

Apparently not even the prospect of Steve and Danny trapped together in a collapsed building, complete with bromantic banter and man-pain, was enough of an enticement to keep Hawaii Five-0 viewers at home and in front of their TVs for “Ku I Ka Pili Koko (Blood Brothers).” Ratings were down across all the major networks for most of the Friday night Primetime lineup, which is not unexpected at this time of year. Spring is most definitely here, bringing with it all sorts of outdoor diversions and temptations to DVR.

Five-o brought in a 1.3 rating and 4 share in the 18-49 demo, slipping by a tenth from the previous week. Total live and same-day viewership was 9.09 million. Five-0 held onto more ratings ground than the competition; NBC’s Grimm was off by two-tenths of a point, and  even ABC’s usual ratings power-house, Shark Tank, slipped by four-tenths compared to last week. Overall, CBS won the night in total viewers and tied with ABC for ratings and demo share.

Hawaii Five-0′s “go-to” reporter

April 14th, 2014 by

If you’ve watched the new inception of Hawaii Five-0 from the start, during a scene near the end of Friday’s episode you may have found yourself thinking, “That reporter sure looks familiar.”  And you would be correct.  Local freelance reporter, writer, and public relations director, Diane Ako, has made a hobby of cameos on the Oahu-based show, with at least three appearances that I’m aware of.

Diane Ako in  “Ku I Ka Pili Koko.”

Diane Ako in “Ku I Ka Pili Koko.”

After Diane’s first experience in the show’s maiden season, she wrote a short blog post about the day in which she claimed that the show’s star, Alex O’Loughlin (Steve McGarrett) was “every bit as hunky as all the gossip columns say.”  Of course, fans of the show will have no problem believing that.

Diane’s initial appearance was with Alex and Scott Caan, and she had nothing but compliments for both actors.  You can check out the original blog from 2010 here, to read Ms. Ako memories about her first day on the set in Season 1.

Friday’s episode is one that fans having been looking forward to all season. Hawaii Five-0 has been lacking some of its epic bromance as Scott Caan has seen less screen time this season and his absence has left fans clamoring for more McGarrett-Danno time. Executive producer, Peter Lenkov, teased, “Prediction: Fan favorite. McDanno fans will be MORE than satisfied.” (via Twitter.)

I predict lots of heart to heart between the two friends as they face possible death. Get your tissues ready.

It’s interesting to note that Xzbit is listed as recurring cast, reprising his role as Jason (JC) Dekker. He originally appeared in the adorable “3 Men and a Baby” episode 4.07. His character is now in jail and has information for the Five-0 team.

Hawaii Five-0 leaves door open for Michelle Borth’s return

April 8th, 2014 by

Hot off the press – some possible good news for fans of Steve McGarrett’s love interest, Lt. Catherine Rollins comes to us from TV Guide.  In times when death seems to be the only way out for television characters, we find out that not only does the character (played by Michelle Borth) not die, we may see her return.  Borth stepped up her role in Season 4 when Grace Park (Kono) took some time off from the series.  Die-hard fans of the McGarrett-Rollins couple nicknamed “McRoll,” now have some hope that the characters may reunite at a later date.

Is Catherine going to die on Hawaii Five-0— Justin
The fact that Michelle Borth’s exit from the show coincides with Steve and Catherine’s dangerous mission in the Middle East does seem ominous, right? Fortunately, I have good news! “She doesn’t die,” executive producer Peter Lenkov tells us exclusively. “She goes out spectacularly. She goes out a hero, and the door’s open for her to come back. Hopefully we’ll see her again at some point.” Relieved?

Initial overnight ratings for Fan-built Five-0

Hawaii Five-0 fans got to see the fruits of their viewer-participation labors when the “Fan-built Five-0″ episode, “Ho’i Hou (Reunited),” aired this past Friday. In addition to the story elements voted on by viewers — Chin Ho’s High School Reunion as scene of the crime;  a macadamia nut tycoon as victim; a stiletto-heeled shoe as murder weapon; a struggling illusionist as suspect; a model rocket as evidence; a take-down in a giant maze — the writers treated us to a new chapter in the Champ Box Mystery when Steve and Danny flew to Cambodia to check out the coded  grave-site coordinates Jerry Ortega (Jorge Garcia) found on John McGarrett’s battered old toolbox.

“Ho’i Hou” brought in a 1.3 rating and 5 share in the 18-49 demo, and won the hour in viewership — 9.52 million.  The slight drop in both total viewers and ratings compared to the last original episode, which aired on March 14th, is in all likelihood the result of the two-week “March Madness” hiatus combined with good old Spring fever; with warmer weather and more hours of evening sunlight, some viewers are probably enjoying themselves outdoors while their DVRs catch Five-0 for them.  Five-0′s biggest competitors were also down from previous weeks.

Hawaii Five-0 fans are known for having strong opinions on the direction they want their favourite show to go, often sharing those views on social media. In a ground breaking move, fans have spent most of this season crafting their very own episode by voting on various elements of the show. Check out our recap here.

How do you feel about this kind of interactive television? If CBS does something like this next year, what would you like to see them do?

Watch below as the cast talk about the making of this fan built episode.

 

Beach bums may recognize guest star Krista Allen from her role as Jenna Avid on Baywatch. Watch for her at Chin’s high school reunion – former flame, perhaps? Sorry folks, doesn’t look like she will be re-enacting running down the beach in slow motion while wearing a skimpy red Baywatch bathing suit.

Another Lost actor is back on the island. Mackenzie Astin appeared in only one episode as a pivotal character from Kate’s past. Seems like once an actor works in Hawaii, the island isn’t done with them!
