Up Next on Hawaii Five-0 “Ha’uoli Lā Ho’omaika’i” with sneak peak clip!

November 21st, 2013 by

Hawaii Five-0 is pulling out the stops with guest stars this week in what is sure to be a ratings coup! The Grand Dame of television comedy, Carol Burnett, appears this week as McGarrett’s Aunt Deb.  The lovely Aunt Deb raised Mary on the mainland at John’s request, after the murder-but-not-a-murder of Doris McGarrett.

If you have never experienced the side splitting comedy of The Carol Burnett Show, I highly recommend checking out clips on YouTube.

Below is an interview that Burnett did on the CBS daytime show, The Talk about her Hawaii Five-0 experience.

Watch carefully during Aunt Deb’s singing performance for Burnett’s signature ear tug.  She’s said that it’s her way of sending a little hello to her now deceased grandmother and daughter.

Based on the short preview clip released by CBS, I already know that this is a character I want to see again and again.

Hawaii Five-0 final Friday ratings for November 15th’s “Akanahe”

November 19th, 2013 by
Alex O'Loughlin & Chi McBride are reluctant partners

Episode 4.08′s title, “Akanahe (Reluctant Partners),” refers to Alex O’Loughlin’s Steve McGarrett and Chi McBride’s Capt. Lou Grover, who are forced to work together and play nice by Governor Denning. Hilarity — and trademark Five-0 chaos — ensue as the pair chase pop heartthrob Nick Jonas across the island.

Final Friday ratings for November 15th show CBS once again winning the night in total viewers, with Blue Bloods (11.79mil, 1.4/4), Hawaii Five-0 (9.90mil, 1.6/5), and Undercover Boss (8.60mil, 1.7/6) claiming the top three positions in the rankings.

Five-0 has maintained a 5 share seven of the past eight weeks and this episode’s 1.6 rating brings the show back up to its season premiere high. A total Live + Same Day viewer count of 9.90 million is the highest for the season thus far.

Was the presence of pop heartthrob Nick Jonas a factor in the viewership and demo bump for Akanahe? Time will tell. What do you  think?

Five-0′s Alex O’Loughlin takes local ladies to the mat for self-defense seminar

November 18th, 2013 by

Hawaii Five-0′s Alex O’Loughlin joined Mixed Martial Arts champion Egan Inoue for a weekend double hitter at Inoue’s new Egan’s Training Center — two women’s and children’s self-defense seminars held on Sunday, November 17th. The Star-Advertiser’s Honolulu Pulse team and photographer Bruce Asato were on hand to cover the event, which raised a tidy $10,000-plus for the Kapiolani Medical Center for Women and Children.

Visit the Honolulu Pulse website to see additional photos of Alex O’Loughlin and Egan Inoue leading the self-defense seminar.

“Hawaii Five-0” star Alex O’Loughlin joined fitness trainer and former MMA champion Egan Inoue to present two self-defense seminars for women and children on Sunday, Nov. 17.

The sessions, held at the new 3,000-square-foot Egan’s Training Center at 2700 S. King St., also served as a fundraiser for Kapiolani Medical Center for Women and Children. Participants paid $300 per person, with the proceeds to be donated to the hospital.

The 90-minute sessions focused on a form of “nonstriking self-defense” based on Inoue’s martial arts training. Participants received a certificate, T-shirt and autographed photograph of O’Loughlin, who trains with Inoue.

Last weekend’s seminars raised $10,500, according to a post on Inoue’s Facebook page.

November 13th, 2013 by

The rising tension between McGarrett and Grover is my favourite new feature of Hawaii Five-0 Season 4.  Their tumultuous relationship reminds me of the first few episodes of Season 1 before the McGarrett and Danno bromance blossomed. Remember when Danno punched McGarrett in the face after getting shot in the shoulder in the pilot?  Ah, the good old days.

Nick Jonas, of the  recently disbanded Jonas brothers, is the big name guest star of the week.  Jonas plays a computer hacker, but sadly, does not appear to cross paths with Hawaii Five-0 fans’ favourite in-house hacker, Toast (played by Martin Starr).

Alex and Egan get ready to teach you a few moves

November 12th, 2013 by

We can thank mixed marital arts champion Egan Inoue for keeping Alex O’Loughlin in shirtless tip top shape.  Now, they are teaming up to help women learn to defend themselves.  On Nov. 17th, Inoue and O’Loughlin will personally teach self defense seminars to a select group of ladies.   The class will cost of $300 for a 90 minute session, with all proceeds going to The Kapiolani Medical Center for Women and Children.

O’Loughlin has been a student of Inoue’s for a few years now.  He used his design and architectural talents (and considerable muscles) to help Inoue relocate his training center to a larger space in Honolulu recently.

I’ve taken a few self defense classes in my time and am quite confident in my ability to defend myself. I think this would be the first class where playing the victim would be more fun than kicking a grown man in the nether region.

For more information, check out Egan’s Fit Body Bootcamp.

CBS Studios International spotlights Hawaii Five-0′s Alex O’Loughlin and Daniel Dae Kim

November 3rd, 2013 by

Press from all over the world was hosted by CBS Studio International at a three day event in in Los Angles. This annual event highlighted the CBS television stars to the international press. Alex O’Loughlin and Daniel Dae Kim were on hand to answer questions about Hawaii Five-0.

Daniel has loved the Lost reunions that have been going on recently on Hawaii Five-0, referring to recent appearances by Terry O’Quinn, Jorge Garcia and Henry Ian Cusick who have all appeared in Season 4. Spoiler Alert #1 – He teased that there may be a love interest in Chin’s future later this season.

The show’s star, Alex O’Loughlin, took the opportunity to thank fans, saying “without the fans, we’d be nothing – I’d be a carpenter!” He also clarified statements he made in a recent Associated Press interview. “It’s not my job, it’s my life!” he said, referring to being misquoted and portrayed as ungrateful in the article. During the panel, he took a call and put it on speaker phone. On the other end, a telemarketer offered a “free cruise” for answering a survey, to which O’Louglin responded by asking the room full of reporters, “Do we want to do this?” He is quite the jokester!

Spoiler Alert #2 -  according to O’Loughlin, Mama McGarrett will come back into Steve’s life but disappear once again. This will have a profound psychological effect on him. It is also possible that McGarrett is suffering from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.

For those lucky enough to see him in person, O’Loughlin offers up this tip about taking his photo, “Ask first, I’ll say yes”. Good to know.

Here are some photos of the panel from the CBS Studios International event.
