Kelvin Han Yee filming the finale and living large in Hawaii

April 28th, 2011 by

Actor Kelvin Han Yee was recently in Hawaii to film his part for the season finale of Hawaii Five-0.  This guy is so full of energy and it shows in the fact that he threw no less than twenty shakas at the camera.   These are video clips that he recorded himself and are available on youtube.  What was particularly interesting was the he showed a glimpse of his HPD uniform as Chief Makaha, and a portrait photograph of him in uniform.  Braddah is so mean looking, he’s one officer I definitely wouldn’t want to mess with.  But he might let you off the hook if you flash a shaka sign at him a dozen times. ;)  Is Chief Makaha a friend of the Five-0 team or another hurdle they must over come?  Is he instrumental in clearing Chin’s name or will he keep Chin black listed by the HPD?  We’ll find out in the finale!

What’s the 411 on the Five-0 **H50?

April 25th, 2011 by

Where does texting **H50 take you?

Viewers in the Unites States saw a short splash screen at the end of the last two new episodes (“Ho’opa’i” and “Ma Ke Kahakai”) that invited them to send a text message to **H50 (or **450) to join the Hawaii Five-0 Surf Club for exclusive content and special offers from local businesses.

Texting **H50 will result in a text from 96683 that reads “Aloha! Welcome to the SURF CLUB!  Click http://cbs.com/hwqr for exclusie H50 clips and CBS Local Offers!”

Clicking the link on your phone will bring you to the “Hawaii Five-0 Surf Club”, where you’ll see a short behind the scenes video clip, an opportunity to opt-in to a mailing list to receive offers from local retailers, a twitter feed for Daniel Dae Kim, and a link to the Facebook Five-0 page.

The clip from two weeks ago featured Daniel Dae Kim.  Last week’s clip showed Alex O’Loughlin talking about the shows stunts.  They were fairly short twenty second clips, and while cool to see, didn’t add too much to the BTS experience…but it may still be worth it for the die hard fan.  After tonight’s “Ke Kinohi”, there was no “Surf Club” splash screen or new mobile content added.

We’ll see next week if CBS adds anything new!

Life on the Set with Blkdrgn, and Ke Kinohi revisited

Life on the Set with Blkdrgn and Ke Kinohi Revisited

Tonight’s episode of Hawaii Five-o is one of my favorites, “Ke Kinohi”, featuring the return of actress Taryn Manning from a considerable absence in the first stretch of the season.  One scene featured a group of Yakuza thugs and their motorcycles outside the Pipeline Café in Honolulu.  Undercover Special Agent Blkdrgn was there and gave me a run down on the filming of that scene back in November of last year.  After you read the post, check out the photos on Facebook.

How’d you guys get involved in the scene?
A group of us motorcycle enthusiasts and the owners of Revtek were invited to bring our motorcycles in front of Pipeline Café to be used as props for the scene.  There were about seven to eight bikes that we brought, and we waited there in front of the café waiting for instructions from the crew.

I heard you had a run in with someone famous…
Yeah, while we were waiting, this guy walks up to us and starts checking out our bikes.  He looked at mine and asked if he could check it out…I realized right there that it was the main guy himself, Alex O’Loughlin.  We talked for a bit, he said he was a bike fanatic and used to have a Ducati with a dry clutch.  He tried to get on my bike, but it’s a racing Suzuki, modified with a lower seat and higher foot pegs, and he was so tall he couldn’t get on it!

What was your impression of the cast?
Alex was really friendly, he approached us himself, checked out our bikes and was cracking jokes.  Daniel Dae Kim said “hi” to us…Scott Caan was always on his phone.

Your bikes got some camera time, did you?
They chose two of us to be extras in the scene, but I didn’t want to…

Thanks for sharing your story and photos with the fans!

Were you paying attention to the last recap…?

April 21st, 2011 by

Contest, yay!

In the last recap for “Ho’opa’i” I buried five references to Diddy or Diddy produced tracks in the “Ho’opa’i” recap described through the collected works of Puffy/Puff Daddy/P.Diddy section.  Find them and you might win a prize…I’m giving away the April issue of Honolulu Magazine with Alex O’Loughlin on the cover, five issues to five lucky winners.

Honolulu Magazine, hawaii five-0, Alex O'Loughlin

Identify the songs, and email them to officer808(at)yahoo.com.  Obviously substitute the (at) with @.  Those who submit the correct answers will win.  If there are more than five correct entries, I’ll select five randomly of all correct entries.  The winners will be selected after the Five-0 episode on Monday, April 25th after the Hawaii airing, at 10 PM HST.  If winners are international, I’ll ship the magazine, but I don’t know how long it’ll take.

If you want to work cooperatively and post here, be my guest. ;)


There are five songs.

Some of them are lyrics, not titles, and have been edited to fit the sentence.

They are songs or songs produced by Diddy.
