A rocky return for Mrs. McGarrett (mild spoiler)

August 7th, 2012 by

As many of us suspected, Steve McGarrett is going to be hesitant to take everything his returning mother says, at face value. But it appears there may be even more obstacles for Doris McGarrett (Christine Lahti) to overcome when she surfaces in Season 3 of Hawaii Five-0.

Got any more details about McGarrett’s mom on Hawaii Five-0? — Janine
ADAM: As you may have guessed, Steve is going to be mighty skeptical about his mother’s motives, given that he’s lived years believing she was dead. Unfortunately for Mama McGarrett, she’s going to have to win over Steve’s entire team if she wants to repair the relationship. “Catherine and Danny and the team — they’re going to be wary of her,” executive producer Peter Lenkov tells us. “You want to believe that her intentions are good, but at the end of the day, there’s going to be a lot of gray and a lot of questions about what she is up to. This team is very open with each other, and she keeps a lot of secrets.”

First look at Steve McGarrett’s mother (Spoilers)

I’m just going to say that having read the article below, I’m already nervous to see what’s ahead for Steve McGarrett in Season 3 of Hawaii Five-0.

CBS’ Hawaii Five-0 left us hanging last May with the shocking revelation that Steve McGarrett’s presumed-dead mother, Doris, is very much alive. “She faked her own death to protect her family,” explains Chicago Hope vet Christine Lahti, who debuts as Mama McG in the September 24 season premiere. “Now she’s come back and Steve [Alex O'Loughlin] is shell-shocked. She hasn’t seen Steve since he was 15 and wants his forgiveness.”
Lahti will appear in at least four episodes, which will reveal where she’s been all this time and if she’s to be trusted. Steve’s spitfire kid sis Mary Ann (Taryn Manning) will also return for a reunion, but I wouldn’t start planning a Mother’s Day picnic on the beach just yet. According to executive producer Peter Lenkov, “Wo Fat wants Doris dead, and a man like that is hard to keep behind bars.”

Hawaiian Five-0 fans welcome Michelle Borth

August 5th, 2012 by

Last year Hawaii Five-0 fans had a chance to meet the new cast members at the show’s season premiere at Sunset On the Beach in Honolulu.  Since CBS has not announced that there will be a similar event for Season 3, local fans took matters into their own hands and invited the newest addition to a “tweet-up.”  Michelle Borth has previously guest-starred as fan favorite Catherine Rollins, Steve McGarrett’s (Alex O’Loughlin) go-to Navy contact, and occasional lover.  This new season sees her addition as a series regular.  Fan groups H50hana and TeamH50, linked up with blogger Wendie Burbridge and put together an intimate event at Big City Diner.   Besides the attendance of Ms. Borth, the high point of the evening may have been the depiction of the famous McGarrett-Catherine bed scene, custom made by Ninja/Hopper Cakes.

We hope you enjoy the photos, and don’t forget to check back for Officer 808’s upcoming blog on the event!

Alex O’Loughlin and Scott Caan provide the hugs

Today in Waikiki, the 9th annual Surf4Hugs event was attended by Hawaii Five-0 stars Alex O’Loughlin and Scott Caan.  Both  actors are avid surfers and they threw their star power behind the event designed to allow some fun in the sun for children with life threatening illness.

Hawaii Five-0 repeats James Caan episode

August 2nd, 2012 by

An update of the August schedule for your viewing pleasure:

Sunday, August 5: “Ma’ema’e” (Clean) A volleyball coach is murdered and McGarrett and Fryer go toe-to-toe as the head of Internal Affairs places Kono in a precarious position.

Monday, August 6:  “Ka Hakaka Maika’i”  (The Good Fight)  When McGarrett injures an innocent charity fight participant, being the gentleman he is, there’s no choice but to jump into the ring and face off against Chuck Lidell himself.  Now, I’m not a fight fan, but I’m more than willing to enjoy the resulting half-clothed Steve.  Am I right, ladies?

Monday, August 13:  “Kūpale” (Defender) This episode provides a bit of Hawaiian history, the return of Al Harrington, and an appearance by Apolo Ohno as a low level loser. Scantily clad men run around brandishing spears, but sadly, none of the near-naked individuals are members of our Five-0 team.

Monday, August 20:  ”Lekio”  (Radio) Although some may remember this episode as the one in which Dennis Miller is blown into little bits of shark chum, it’s real worth is in James Caan’s performance as Tony Archer.  I’m pretty sure that most Hawaii Five-0 fans fell in love with the grizzled ex-detective when he managed to insinuate himself smack dab into the middle of the Steve-Danno bromance.  I don’t know about you, but I sure hope that Peter Lenkov brings the senior Caan back for Season 3.

Photos: Hawaii Five-0 does the TCAs

July 30th, 2012 by

Since the 2012 Summer TCAs are the time that networks trot out their upcoming new Fall shows, there was no Hawaii Five-0 panel presented on Sunday.  Luckily for fans, three of the series’ stars showed up for the after-party and hung around long enough to pose for photographers. With almost two months before Season 3 premieres, it’s nice that fans have these images of Alex O’Loughlin, Scott Caan, and Masi Oka, to enjoy in the meantime.

A big thanks to Mizzoh at AOLRocks for the images.  Her complete gallery can be seen here.

Update: McGarrett and Danno’s excellent adventure

Fans of the actors who make up the bromantic duo of Steve McGarrett and Danny Williams  on Hawaii Five-0, enjoyed a few fun behind-the-scenes moments with the two on Sunday, July 29th. The pair were in Beverly Hills for the 2012 Summer TCA (Television Critics Association) press tour, and thanks to social media, we didn’t have long to wait for some updates. Alex O’Loughlin (McGarrett,) and Scott Caan (Danno) exhibited why their onscreen chemistry is so strong: the pair genuinely like each other in real life.

 O’Loughlin’s longtime followers know that he’s quite the cut-up and he didn’t let them down this time.  Fans had an opportunity to send questions to CBS in advance of the event, and @graciemonkey was lucky enough to have her tweet to executive producer Peter Lenkov chosen: “The McDanno bromance is so cute, are you surprised by how much chemistry Alex & Scott have on & off screen? ”  The inquiry was intercepted by Alex who joked, “I know this question was for Peter but I am going to answer it.  Our chemistry is as strong as it is because we are deeply attracted to one another in real life.”   The silliness continued when the two hit the CBS photo booth.
