Monday night’s installment of Hawaii Five-0, “Ho’opio,” was the only part of CBS’s Monday night lineup to gain ground on the previous week’s ratings. “Ho’opio” brought in a 1.9/5 rating in the 18-49 demo with 7.82 million viewers, regaining ground lost with last week’s series low ratings on “Imi Loko Ka ‘Uhane” — a 1.7/5 rating in the demo, with 7.76 million viewers.

Hawaii Five-0′s Daniel Dae Kim shares favorite scenes of Season 3

May 6th, 2013 by

As part of their season-end promotion, CBS asked Hawaii Five-0′s Daniel Dae Kim to pick his three favorite scenes of the past season. Kim’s choices, and his thoughts on each, are linked below at the CBS website.

Telling Danno About the First Time He Met Malia

“This was a favorite because it was a totally unguarded moment between two characters. Most of the time, we see team members’ interactions centered around a case, but here Chin got a chance to open up to Danny about something deeply personal. It was nice to see his vulnerable side, as well as Danno’s.”

Final Fight With Kaleo

“This was a standout to me mainly because I so enjoy working with Jason and Will. They are both such talented, generous actors and there was such a natural rapport with both of them. It’s a very rare thing when Asian American actors are able to share the screen together in a non-stereotypical way, and I’m proud of 5-0 for creating those opportunities week after week.”

Malia’s Death

“These scenes were meaningful to me because they represented such deep, unmitigated loss. For an actor, they can be some of the most difficult, yet rewarding scenes to play. Taking something as intensely personal as the loss of a loved one and allowing it to be shared with millions of viewers is part of what makes TV so powerful as a storytelling medium.”

Hawaii Five-0 welcomes Olympian Clarissa Chun (SPOILERS!)

May 5th, 2013 by

Hawaii Five-0 adds an Olympian to the Five-0 Ohana this week when bronze medalist and World champion women’s freestyle wrestler Clarissa Chun guests in “Ho’opio (To Take Captive).”

Chun’s scene takes place at one of Kamekona’s trademark promotional events — a lighter moment in what is sure to be a suspenseful episode and emotional roller-coater for both the parents of the abducted children and Danny Williams, for whom the case hits too close to home.

Chun shared details of her role in “Ho’opio” and her time with the cast and crew of Hawaii Five-0 with Craig Sesker and theMat.com in an online article published last week.

Clarissa Chun has been in her share of big wrestling matches.

But the Olympic bronze medalist and World champion women’s freestyle wrestler had never been in a bout quite like this.

On March 27, Chun was on a Honolulu beach dressed in a Sumo wrestling costume as she battled an opponent during filming for the popular CBS show, Hawaii Five-0.

That scene is scheduled to be shown on the next episode of Hawaii Five-0, set to air on Monday night at 10 p.m. Eastern Time/9 Central and Mountain.

“It was an awesome experience,” said Chun, who grew up in Hawaii. “I had so much fun. I loved it. Everybody was great to work with. It was pretty cool to be a part of it.”

Chun said Hawaii Five-0 producer Jeffrey Downer contacted her mother, Gail, shortly after Chun won a bronze medal at the 2012 Olympic Games in London. Downer invited Chun and her family to visit the set of the show. Chun said Downer is a former wrestler who has followed her career.

Chun met a number of cast members, including Hawaii Five-O co-star Scott Caan, during her initial visit to the show’s set.

Shortly after that, Chun received a phone call in February asking her if she would be interested in appearing in an episode of the show.

Chun then met the entire cast, including Grace Park and star Alex O’Loughlin, who plays Hawaii Five-0 commander Steve McGarrett. She also posed for photos with the cast members.

“They were really cool and a lot of fun to talk to,” Chun said. “Everyone was really nice. Alex and Scott said they wanted to train with me in Jiu-jitsu.”

Chun also had an interesting encounter with actress Michelle Borth, who plays O’Loughlin’s girlfriend on the show.

“Michelle said, ‘You’re kind of a big deal aren’t you?’” Chun said with a laugh.

Chun said she was in one scene on the show that took several hours to shoot. She had one line that was two words long.

“The scene is probably less than a minute,” she said. “We did several takes because they wanted to get different camera angles and everything. I was wrestling in a Sumo costume, which was heavy and difficult to move in. My scene doesn’t really have anything to do with the storyline or the case they are working on. It’s just something they wanted to put in as part of the show.”

Chun was paid for her appearance and she can earn royalties if the episode is shown in syndication or in other countries.

Chun said she’s anxious to watch the episode on Monday night.

“I’m just curious to see how it turned out,” she said. “I’m really excited to see it.”

So who won the wrestling match Chun was in?

“You will have to tune in and watch,” she said, “to see who won.”

The case hits too close to home on Monday’s Hawaii Five-0 (SPOILERS!)

May 3rd, 2013 by

A child abduction case in “Ho’opio,” Monday’s episode of Hawaii Five-0, hits too close to home for Danny (Scott Caan). Will Steve have to take his partner off the case? Tune in Monday to find out!

Rick Porter of ZAP2it.com teased readers with some details on “Ho’opio” in an article published in early April.

Rollins (“Sons of Anarchy”) will play a “vicious” man who has abducted several children and holds them in his home. Winningham, late of “Hatfields & McCoys,” is his wife, who tries to make the kids feel comfortable but doesn’t seem to be aware of how terrified they are.

Swayze (“True Blood,” “Carnivale”) will play a possible suspect in the abduction of a young girl, but after Steve (Alex O’Loughlin) and Danny (Scott Caan) question him they discover he’s innocent.

Hawaii Five-0 rebroadcasts “Ho’ opio”

May 1st, 2013 by

Friday’s replay of Season Three’s “Ho’opio (To Take Captive),” sees Danny pushed to the edge by a serial child abduction suspect — pushed far enough that he may have to be taken off the case.

As the press release (below) tells us, “When the body of a young girl who was kidnapped 10 years earlier is discovered, Five-0 must hunt down the kidnappers who have now taken their next victim.” It’s easy to see how this case would hit close to home for Danny.


PRESS RELEASE, “HO’OPIO”

WHEN THE BODY OF A GIRL WHO WAS KIDNAPPED 10 YEARS EARLIER IS DISCOVERED, FIVE-0 MUST HUNT DOWN THE KIDNAPPERS WHO HAVE NOW TAKEN THEIR NEXT VICTIM, ON “HAWAII FIVE-0,” MONDAY, MAY 6

Mare Winningham and Henry Rollins (“Sons of Anarchy”) Guest Star

“Ho’ opio” – When the body of a young girl who was kidnapped 10 years earlier is discovered, Five-0 must hunt down the kidnappers who have now taken their next victim.  Meanwhile, Kono asks Catherine for a favor that could damage her relationship with Adam, on HAWAII FIVE-0, Monday, May 6 (10:00-11:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network.  Mare Winnigham and Henry Rollins (“Sons of Anarchy”) guest star.

Aisha Tyler talks “fun and crazy” time on Hawai Five-0

Tonight’s brand-new episode of Hawaii Five-0 sees The Talk’s Aisha Tyler playing daytime talk-show host Savannah Walker in “Imi loko ka ‘uhane (Seek Within One’s Soul).” Savannah scores a ride-along for herself and her camera crew after Governor Denning’s office green-lights her project; predictably, McGarrett and his team are less than enthused with the idea.

Jim Halterman of TV Fanatic caught up with The Talk’s Aisha Tyler and talked story with her about working on tonight’s episode of Hawaii Five-0. (Excerpts below; read the complete article at tvfanatic.com)

 


Aisha Tyler Talks The Talk, “Fun and Crazy” Episode of Hawaii Five-0
April 29th, 2013 8:15 AM by Jim Halterman

While Hawaii Five-0 Fanatics love seeing McGarrett and Danny banter and work each other’s nerves, imagine what their annoyance levels would be if a TV talk show host was suddenly allowed to follow their every move with a camera crew in town.

That’s exactly what goes down on tonight’s installment of the CBS hit, as Aisha Tyler – who knows a thing or two about hosting a show as part of the crew on The Talk – stops by the big island.

I checked in with the busy comedian/host/actress to find out what the experience was like shooting in Hawaii, while also touching on her myriad of other projects…

——————————————-

TV Fanatic: Tell me who Savannah Walker is. She looks like maybe a send-up of a little of everybody that we see on these on talk shows.
Aisha Tyler: She’s not really based on anyone. She’s a talk show host, kind of charismatic and the idea is that she has this kind of light conversational show and decides to do this in-depth piece on Hawaii Five-0. With an eye towards not an exposé but towards creating something more exciting and more visceral than what she normally does and she end us in the middle of the action and that’s kind of more than she bargained for.

TVF: How does she actually get in with the guys because they’re so protective, but they obviously let her and her crew follow them.
AT: They’re forced to by their bosses. And they don’t really make it easy on her at all.

TVF: Are most of your scenes with Alex and Scott?
AT: No. I have scenes with everyone. They wrote it so I have scene with every single member of the cast. I do spend a bunch of time with Alex and Scott, but also with the entire team as a group, which was really amazing.

TVF: Having talked to the cast, I know they’re all pretty fun and crazy and you can be fun and crazy. How did the shoot go?
AT:  It was fun and crazy, absolutely. You know, I’ve been doing this for a long time and it was just nice to be back on a drama set…the role is really substantial. A main concern is that this person doesn’t come in and interrupt your flow or not be prepared. So my main goal was just to know my lines and hit my marks and people will see the way that they shot the [episode], because is was like a documentary style piece, is very different from the way the show normally looks. So it was much more aggressive and it was just really important that everybody had it together, but it was great. I love working that way. A bunch of the producers on this show, I worked with them when I was on 24 and that’s how they worked on that show as well.

TVF: How involved in the action do you get? Do you get to hold a gun?
AT:  I got to do lots of stuff. I don’t want to give it all away.

TVF: And how hard was it to be in Hawaii with all those pretty people?
AT:  Well, I’ll tell you, it didn’t suck! But it wasn’t as glamorous as you would think because quite a bit of it was just getting up before the sun came out, working all day and then going back to my room after the sun went down. So there was not the kind of like ‘I’m in Hawaii’ feeling that you would have had because I was really working 14-hour days.

Wo Fat’s back on Monday night’s Hawaii Five-0 (SPOILERS!!)

Aisha Tyler, co-host of CBS’s popular Daytime talk show The Talk, has never been afraid to let her fangirl flag fly when it comes to Hawaii Five-0′s Daniel Dae Kim.  He’s visited — and charmed — the ladies of The Talk several times. When The Talk spoofed the more popular CBS Primetime shows, it was only natural that Tyler would take part in the Five-0 spot — a prelude of sorts to her actual guest role in Monday night’s “Imi loko ka ‘uhane (Seek Within One’s Soul).”

CBS’s official press release (which appears below the promo videos) gives the following description of the episode:

 “Imi loko ka ‘uhane” – Five-0 allows a talk show host and her crew to follow them for the day, but the investigation turns dangerous when they have a run-in with Wo Fat, on HAWAII FIVE-0, Monday, April 29 (10:00-11:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network.  THE TALK co-host Aisha Tyler guest stars as talk show host Savannah Walker.

A run-in with Wo Fat? Savannah’s show should score epic ratings with that kind of action!

Hawaii Five-0 season finale thrill ride (SPOILERS)

April 24th, 2013 by

Every season, Peter Lenkov and the Hawaii Five-0 writing team look for ways to keep us on the edge of our seats and biting our nails throughout the summer hiatus, and the end of Season 3 looks to be no different. One of the main things season finales are designed to do is keep viewers engaged, keep viewers discussing the show, and most importantly, keep them hungry for answers when the show returns in the Fall.

From the looks of the “Aloha. Malama Pono” spoilers revealed by TV Guide, we’re going to have some exciting things to discuss as we wait for Season 4!

McGarrett and Danno interrogate a suspect

“Aloha. Malama Pono” — When an unlisted plane lands on Oahu with four bodies on board and a missing terrorist detainee, the CIA tasks Five-0 (pictured: Alex O’™Loughlin, center and Scott Caan, right) with finding him before he carries out an attack on US soil, on the third season finale of HAWAII FIVE-0, Monday, May 20 (10:00-11:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network. Photo: Norman Shapiro/CBS)

 

Hawaii Five-0 (CBS)
Airs:
Monday, May 20 at 10/9c

The team must find a terrorist who landed his hijacked transport plane in Oahu before he is able to carry out his attack. All the while, Kono is on the run for a murder she didn’t commit and McGarrett learns some shocking news from Wo Fat. Could it have something to do with what happened between Wo Fat and McGarrett’s mother Doris in the safe house? And can McGarrett trust either of them? “We find our team risking it all by putting their trust in people or things that maybe they shouldn’t,” executive producer Peter Lenkov says. “We’ll see if their faith pays off.” As for whether Doris will stick around, Lenkov says, “We’ve only just begun to scratch the surface on Doris McGarrett. … Her story’s not quite done yet.” But someone will likely say goodbye. “The English translation of our finale title is ‘Farewell and take care,’ Lenkov says. “You can take want you want from that.”

Hawaii Five-0 wraps season 3

April 20th, 2013 by

With an extremely busy couple of months ahead of them — Hawaii Five-0′s local production crew will be working throughout the summer hiatus to pack up and move the show from their old home at 605 Kapiolani to their new digs at the Diamond Head Studio — cast an crew have been pulling out all the stops on the last handful of season three episodes. They have also, according to Mike Gordon of the Star Advertiser and Honolulu Pulse Outtakes Online, started work on the season four premiere.

Gordon chatted with show lead Alex O’Loughlin during the recent Kualoa Ranch shoot for the season’s 21st episode; the Outtakes Online article below is based on that interview.

Outtakes Online: ‘Five-0′ wraps third season

BY MIKE GORDON / mgordon@staradvertiser.com

“Hawaii Five-0” finished shooting its last episode of season three on Thursday, April 18, but that doesn’t mean everyone can go home. Work began right away on Friday, April 19, and will continue for a few days next week on season four. Just a few scenes, though.

It’s been a long season — 24 episodes that started last July. The daily production grind can start before sunrise and last for 12 to 14 hours.

The show’s leading man, Alex O’Loughlin, who stars as Steve McGarrett, called the pace exhausting a few weeks ago as he filmed an episode at Kualoa Ranch. The episodes were becoming a blur, he said.

“We’re on episode 21 now and personally, I think it’s way too much television,” he said between scenes. “Twenty-four episodes is overkill. I think that they got it right in cable, man. It’s like, 7 to 12 episodes and that’s it for the year. That’s perfect. But we’re doing it, man. It’s good.”

Cable does feature shorter seasons and some of the most acclaimed shows — “Mad Men,” “Breaking Bad” and “Southland” — air a baker’s dozen each year. Traditional television has long gone with 22 episodes but some shows, including “Five-0,” have shot 24.

On the upside, being tired means funny. If you watch the aptly dubbed “carguments” between O’Loughlin’s McGarrett and Scott Caan’s Danno, you know they can go at it like an old married couple.

“I think the more tired we get, the funnier it becomes,” O’Loughlin said.

He’s not really sure why, but who cares? It’s fun to watch. O’Loughlin called the ongoing chemistry between the two characters “a big part of the glue that holds the whole thing together.”

“I think the longer we go into a season, the more difficult it gets to get up at 4:30 in the morning and to do all the action stuff,” he said. “Perhaps you are seeing some fatigue and some stuff come through that kind of gives it a different flavor and maybe makes it more realistic.”

Peter Lenkov spills some season-ender beans for Hawaii Five-0 (SPOILERS!)

Steve has some bad news for mom Doris

From the sound of some season-ender spoilers Peter Lenkov shared with TV Guide’s Adam Bryant and Natalie Abrams, Mama Doris (Christine Lahti) is not making things easy on her son Steve (Alex O’Loughlin) and his raft of trust issues as the season comes to a close.

(Read the full Mega Buzz article excerpted below at the TV Guide website)


Can you give us any hints about where McGarrett and his mother stand in the season finale of Hawaii Five-0? — Heather


ADAM:
The pair will actually make quite a team in the season’s penultimate episode. But once the finale offers some new answers about what exactly transpired between Doris and Wo Fat in that safe house, you can expect the the mother-son relationship to be as fraught as ever. “”McGarrett is getting to a place that he has to trust the people in his life,” executive producer Peter Lenkov says. “[But] with Doris… it’s always one step forward, two steps back. The moment he starts to trust her, she does something to break that trust.” As such, don’t look for Mama McGarrett’s story to be completely wrapped up in the finale. “We’ve only just begun to scratch the surface,” Lenkov says.
