New Hawaii Five-0 promo for “Mai Ka Wā Kahiko”

January 31st, 2012 by

Prepare for unbearable tension in next week’s episode of Hawaii Five-0.  One of my favorite director’s, Larry Teng, is at the helm for this one, and I can’t wait!

Update: Extended promo!

Talking Story with Mike Buck and Peter Lenkov on AM 690 KHNR (Hawaii Five-0 podcast)

January 27th, 2012 by

Mike Buck hosted Hawaii Five-0′s executive producer Peter Lenkov for the first time at his new home at AM 690 KHNR.  Peter discussed Jenna Kaye, upcoming appearances of Michelle Borth, the retutn of Shelburne in the finale, Will Yun Lee as Sang Min, creating the NCIS:LA/Hawaii Five-0 crossover, his chances of doing a cameo on his own show, and gave me an exclusive teaser on James Caan’s upcoming role. I got a kick out of Peter’s story of James Caan’s interest in the show and how he pitched his character to Peter and Paul Z.  Peter also re-confirmed that there will be 24 episodes.  Peter closed by saying that this has been the best crew that he’s worked with.  Friends of the blog@TereseaLea, @fiveophans, @Pinkiepie230, and @Fitgirl called in and asked their own questions to Peter as well.  It was a fun interview, and a big mahalo goes to Mike Buck and Peter Lenkov!

EXCLUSIVE SPOILERY NEWS from Peter Lenkov on the Mike Buck Show

January 26th, 2012 by

AVERT your eyes if you don’t want to be spoiled with James Caan news.


Just got off the phone with my mini-interview with Peter Lenkov, via Mike Buck and his Mike Buck show:

James Caan approached Peter about Scott Caan’s character, wanting to know if Rachel and Danny get back together, and even pitched a character idea to Peter and Paul Z.  Peter and Paul loved the character and that’s how James’ character came into being.  But the big shocker is that James will not be playing Scott’s father!  Shocking and intriguing!

Honolulu talk show host Mike Buck to interview Peter Lenkov

January 25th, 2012 by

He has climbed highest mountains, he has run through the fields, only to be back with us!  After a brief time off-air, Mike Buck found what he was looking for: a new home for his  radio show at AM 690 KHNR.  As you recall Mike and I first talked story about Lost on his radio show and dissected the show with our theories.  When Hawaii Five-0 started, we started our talk story sessions back up again to talk about the episode, the story, the action and all the wonderful “local-isms” of the show.  A few of our discussions are in the “Podcasts” section of the blog.    Sometimes producers Peter Lenkov and Paul Zbyszewski were in-studio guests and shed more insight on our favorite show.

Mike has been on air for a week now, and he’s secured executive producer Peter Lenkov to chat about Hawaii Five-0!  Follow the the KHNR link to the webpage and click the “Listen Live” button between 8-9 AM Hawaii Standard Time tomorrow morning, Thursday the 26th.

What are your questions for Peter?  I may have an opportunity to ask a few!

Apolo Ohno scores a trip to Hawaii Five-0

January 24th, 2012 by

Apolo Ohno’s fans have been lobbying Hawaii Five-0 executive producer Peter Lenkov for months in hopes of landing the Olympic Gold Medal winner a role on the CBS show.  It appears their efforts have paid off; earlier today Ono tweeted: “@King5TracyT  I will be going to hawaii! Filming hawaii five-o!”

CBS Tweets confirmed the news with an announcement of their own, “Exclusive Casting Alert! Olympic speedskating medalist @ApoloOhno to guest star on #H50. Are there ice rinks in Hawaii?”   We knew the man can skate and dance, but can he act?

So which celebrity should be the next beneficiary of such a twitter campaign?


New promo: Four Reasons to Watch Five-0

January 23rd, 2012 by

We have to wait a while longer for a new Hawaii Five-0 episode but in the meantime, CBS has released a new promo to keep us happy.


The Five-0 Redux’s Wendie Joy offers insight on Hawaii Five-0 “Mai ka wā kahiko”

January 22nd, 2012 by

For some reason, the CBS PR department has released promo photos for Hawaii Five-0 episode 2.15, but not the press release.  As E!online teased earlier in the season, this episode finds Danno’s former partner showing up to seek revenge for some transgression.  Based on the images that have been released, “Rick” may very well be frequent bad-guy, Peter Greene.  Presumably, the title “Mai ka wā kahiko” used for the promo photos references the previous partner.  Big thanks to our friend Wendie Joy of The Five-0 Redux for sharing the translation of the title:

mai=from, ka wā=the time, kahiko=old, ancient.  This gives us “From the old time,” or more colloquially, “A blast from the past.”

Phillies outfielder catches Hawaiian wave

January 20th, 2012 by

Hawaii Five-0 executive producer and Phillies fan, Peter Lenkov has been teasing for awhile that outfielder Shane Victorino might make an appearance the show.  He finally confirmed it on Thursday with a tweet and a photo of himself with Victorino.  The island native nicknamed “The Flyin’ Hawaiian” is just the latest Philly to try out the acting field.

Hawaii Five-0 episode 2.14 topples Castle

January 18th, 2012 by

Castle brought in a much smaller audience than usual, giving the timeslot win over to Hawaii Five-o.  Maybe viewers were more interested in finding out who Shelburne was, or wanted to see how Danno would perform as midwife to his ex-wife.  Whatever the reason, Hawaii Five-0 came out ahead in both overall viewers and the 18-49 demo.


Danno delivers

And the winner of the “Who do you think Shelbourne is” contest is…

January 18th, 2012 by

I have a confession.  The contest was purely made up by me and Terry to throw our competitors off into thinking we actually had awesome stuff to give away, and it was meant to protect all of you Undercover Special Agents from the truth.

Just kidding.

Thanks all for sometimes hilarious and sometimes serious entries into the contest!  There were over a hundred entries, and it took me some time to read through them all.  This was an exercise in fun and creativity and the ones that made me spat coffee and/or Diet Coke were the ones that got my notice.  So the winner that I chose was the cleverest answer, which of course will probably *not* be the answer revealed in “Pu’olo”.

Here’s some of the stand out answers.

William Sadler as John McGarrett, Hawaii Five-0.

In the Most Creative Serious Answer category, Radiant and Jim win a Pat On The Back for their  following responses:

Radiant says:

I believe that Steve’s mother, Doris McGarrett, is Shelburne because she and Hiro Noshimuri may be the parents of Wo Fat and that is why Wo Fat is afraid of Shelburne. Steve McGarrett may be a half brother of Wo Fat, sharing the same mother. Joe White helped John McGarrett faked Doris McGarrett’s death and also helped Hiro Noshimuri faked his death. Both Doris McGarrett and Hiro Noshimuri are alive and living in Japan. That is why Joe White went to Japan twice, according to episode 213.

Jim says:

I agree with a previous poster that Shelbourne will be Steve McGarrett’s grandfather who will obviously NOT have been killed in Pearl Harbor attack, He will have been a CIA agent with knowledge of Wo Fat’s family and background over 70 years that is a threat to Wo Fat and he will be played be Ed Asner whose H50 appearance was reported either here or on another site recently….special guest star as OLD Steve McGarrett’s current wife…MARY TYLER MOORE!!

In the I Can’t Believe How Close You Were category (based on the episode), the following win a Hip Hip Hooray:

Mariqco says:

no one
ghost in the wind

Dee- hedwig says:

I think Shelbourne is Joe, because he is the “anonymous” helper that faked the death of Steve’s mom,(which somehow involves another family member like another sister ) faked Makoto death and also is the “secret keeper” of WoFat’s evils. And the that is why WoFat is afraid of Shelbourne.
Jays says:

I think a variety of people are/have been Shelbourne because they hold some key of evidence Wo Fat doesn’t want to get out. This could mean Joe is Shelburne now. Steve’s father was Shelburne before. And Steve will be Shelburne next. And that’s why Wo Fat is afraid of Shelbourne.

Monique says:

I think Joe White is Shelbourne and that He is Steve McGarretts real Dad. Why did the supposedly Senior Mcgarrett mention Shelbourne and Joe gets ambushed by Wo Fat. Me thinks, Shelbourne (Joe) knows everyones secrets that is why Wo Fat fears him.

Monique says:

I think Joe White is Shelbourne and that He is Steve McGarretts real Dad. Why did the supposedly Senior Mcgarrett mention Shelbourne and Joe gets ambushed by Wo Fat. Me thinks, Shelbourne (Joe) knows everyones secrets that is why Wo Fat fears him.

ga_unicorn says:

Shelbourne used to be John McGarrett, but the duty fell to Joe White after John’s death. Steve doesn’t know it yet, but he’s next in line. Shelbourne never ends, and that’s why Wo Fat is afraid of Shelbourne.

Joyce T says:

I don’t think it was said that Shelbourne was one person or even a person. I may be wrong. It could be the code name for the investigation John McGarrett was doing for Makoto. Makoto did say to Steve that he looked like his father. Maybe John, Doris and Makoto are all still alive.

And before I give you the winner of the “Who Do You Think Shelbourne Is” contest winner, I present to you the honorable mentions.

westcosta79 says:

I think the ghost of Jack Lord is Shelbourne because he can still pack a mean snap of his fingers and the CFCs in all the hair products he continues to use in the afterlife distributes so many toxins in the air that it can suffocate anyone who comes near him, even if he is a ghost. And that’s why Wo Fat is afraid of Shelbourne.

Christine says:

I think Carrie Ann Inaba, Len Goodman, and Bruno Tonioli are members of a secret elite force, code named Shelbourne. This elite force has a hand in the fates of the strong, powerful, and well known influential people they come up against. No one is immune from the will of this team. And that is why Wo Fat is afraid of Shelbourne.

Benita Lee says:

I think the Chairman of Kitchen Stadium is Shelbourne because only he knows tonight’s secret ingredient and he has an army of Iron Chefs to help him do battle against upstart challengers. And that’s why Wo Fat is afraid of Shelbourne.

LisaLisa98 says:

I think a Can of SPAM is Shelbourne because it could kill McGarrett (or so he might think). Also Kamekona’s already hawkin’ it like there’s a hurricane in Hawaii and Kamekona’s got all the inside tips. Plus I have yet to hear that the Chairman made it a Secret Ingredient.
And that’s why Wo Fat is afraid of Shelbourne.

Steph says:

I think Dr. Gabrielle Asano is Shelbourne because she’s actually buried all the secrets to Steve’s past at the Shelburne Museum, scattered over 1400 acres of historic ground in Vermont. The secrets are safe because Wo Fat is allergic to maple syrup. And that’s why Wo Fat is afraid of Shelbourne.

Henry says:

I think Wo Fat’s mom is Shelbourne because Wo Fat goes holoholo [traveling] all ovah da world an leevs her at home. And that’s why Wo Fat is afraid of Shelbourne.

lahagela says:

Mama McG…….and Woooo Fat is a scared cos she was Daddy Woooo fats luva and she knows the secret ingredient. And that’s why Wo Fat is scared of Shelbourne.

mickmcgarrett says:

I think Officer 808 is Shelbourne because he lives in an underground bunker and has spies everywhere. And that’s why Wo Fat is afraid of Shelbourne.

mickmcgarrett says:

I think Peter Lenkov is Shelbourne because he can kill off WoFat w/ the stroke of his pen. And that’s why Wo Fat is afraid of Shelbourne

Tesse23 says:

I think a spider is Shelbourne because spiders are ugly and have long legs. And that is why Wo Fat is afraid of Shelbourne.

…and the winner of the GQ Magazine with Alex O’Loughlin is… (drum roll)

Caroline loves McGarrett says:

I think the six fingered man is Shelbourne because he is an evil daddy killer and that’s why Wo Fat is afraid of Shelbourne.
“My name is Indigo Montoya (Wo Fat’s alias) You killed my father, prepare to die!”

According to Joe (call sign “Shelburne”), he killed Wo Fat’s father.  Combine that with “The Princess Bride” reference, and you got a winner!  Congratulations Caroline, your magazine will be sent to you.  But first my Nigerian business manager requires you to send me $1000 processing fee (totally refundable) via Western Union before I can ship your magazine (kidding!).

Thanks all for participating, look for the next contest down the road!
