Up Next on Hawaii Five-0 Season Finale; “’O ka Pili ‘Ohana ka ‘Oi”

May 8th, 2014 by
season4finale

From CBS

Can you believe it’s the season finale already? If it seems like the end has arrived faster than usual, you would be right. Season 4 featured only 22 episodes compared to 24 episodes in Seasons 1-3.

Nick Jonas reprises his role as the devilish computer hacker, Ian Wright. His performance in episode 4.08 was surprisingly dastardly. I’m looking forward to seeing what chaos Wright brings after kidnapping Grover’s daughter forcing, the SWAT leader to steal $100 million for ransom money.   This forces a face-off with Five-0 in a storyline reminiscent of the Season 1 finale when Five-0 stole evidence money to save Chin Ho from death at the hands of Victor Hesse.  It’s interesting to note that Jonas is mentioned as “recurring cast.” Will he be returning is Season 5?

The mysterious Wo Fat, returns after a nearly year long absence. I was disappointed that McGarrett’s arch-enemy wasn’t woven into more episodes throughout the season. One would think that his uber-evilness would have made an appearance in some form before now.

Friday’s season finale sees a new member join Five-0 (the obvious choice is Grover but could it be someone else?) and a car chase the likes you have never seen before!  You’ll probably recognize both Michelle Hurd (Law & Order: SVU) who will be playing Lou Grover’s wife, and perennial bad-guy Richard Burgi.  Michelle tweeted to a 50undercover.com teammate, that she hoped to make the her role a recurring one.  We hope so too. Michelle!

Hawaii Five-0′s Scott Caan visits the Queen

May 7th, 2014 by

The multi-talented Scott Caan recently spent a little time with the Queen.  Queen Latifah that is.  Caan seemed genuinely fond of the rap superstar, declaring that she was only the second person in his life who’d reduced him to a starstruck state.

 

 

Most viewers probably aren’t aware that before he decided to try his hand at acting, Scott gave the music industry a shot, performing as part of rap duo, The Whooliganz.  And in a striking coincidence, the group shared the same record label as Latifah.

 

 

Caan now appears as Danny “Danno” Williams on the CBS show “Hawaii Five-0″ and to see what he has to say about castmate, Alex O’Loughlin, his work with Surfers Healing, and more, be sure to check out all the clips on our Facebook page!

Two-hour Shark Tank nips at Five-0 ratings

Just when you thought it was safe to go back into the water…

ABC’s decision to run a second hour of Shark Tank last night appears to have nibbled at Hawaii Five-0′s initial Friday Live + Same Day ratings figures. It looks like some viewers who tuned into the reality show’s first hour didn’t switch over to CBS when the second rolled around, resulting in a slight dip for Five-0.

Last night’s “Makani ʻOlu a Holo Mālie (Fair Winds and Following Seas),” bid adieu to Steve McGarrett’s (Alex O’Loughlin) love, Catherine Rollins (Michelle Borth) as she went off into the mountains of the Afghanistan-Pakistan border in search of an abducted Pashtun boy. The episode also bid adieu to one tenth of a ratings point in the 18-49 demographic, dropping from last week’s 1.3/4 to 1.2/4, and 8.69 million viewers, down from last week’s 9.26 million. Both indicators will most likely rebound when seven-day DVR viewership figures are factored in.

According to USA Today’s Bill Keveny, commenting in a May 1st online article, networks are finally realizing that Friday nights are no longer bad news for prime time shows. The CBS lineup, and Hawaii Five-0 in particular, feature prominently in Keveny’s article.

“CBS’ Hawaii Five-0, now paired with the night’s most-watched series, Blue Bloods, has increased its audience 11% despite moving from Mondays to the second-least-watched night of the week,” says Keveny, going on to quote CBS exec Glenn Geller on the successful pairing of Five-0 and Blue Bloods.

“We’ve had tremendous success this year “with the Five-0/Blue Bloods combo, says Glenn Geller, who oversees CBS’ returning programs. “Every network has a little something to crow about, and it’s great for network television. Audiences show up for good TV, and there’s a lot to choose from on Friday night.”

Keveny also chatted with Hawaii Five-0 executive producer Peter Lenkov, who is understandably delighted with the show’s performance on what was seen by the hand-wringing contingent as a death-sentence timeslot.

“Five-0, averaging 11.6 million viewers, is trying to tap into a family audience, and executive producer Peter Lenkov says it makes a good fit with Blue Bloods, another fourth-year police drama, and a top-15 show (13.7 million) that this season had its most-watched episode since its premiere in 2010,” says Keveny.

“For Lenkov, the move to an earlier time slot (9 p.m. ET/PT) may be at least as important as the switch in nights,” Keveny added, before further quoting Lenkov.

“I always thought we were better suited for a 9 o’clock show no matter what night we we were on,” he says. “I think we’re lighter in terms of our procedural stories and character interactions. We like to think there’s a lot of humor in the show. I always felt like the 10 o’clock shows always seemed a little edgier and darker,” while competition on Mondays was “like a street fight.”

Keveny goes on to reveal some promotional teases for tonight’s high-stakes episode, as well as for next week’s season finale.

“Lenkov hopes to end Five-0‘s first Friday season in style. This week’s episode will feature Steve McGarrett (Alex O’Loughlin) and Catherine Rollins (Michelle Borth) traveling to Afghanistan to help a family, while the May 9 season finale will continue the story of Captain Lou Grover (Chi McBride) and feature an appearance by archvillain Wo Fat (Mark Dacascos).”

Up Next on Hawaii Five-0 “Makani ʻOlu a Holo Mālie”

May 1st, 2014 by

Look down… Look up… McGarrett is on a horse!

 

Finally!!! The tables are turned when Catherine asks McGarrett to do her a favour. Unlike the usual Navy intelligence information that Steve asks Catherine to get for him, her favour involves bullets, bad guys and a bloody McGarrett. Some of the promo photos remind me of his capture and torture at the hands of Wo Fat. Who is going to be saving who by the end? To find out that and more, don’t miss this lead-up to the final episode of Season 4!

Bollywood beauty, Mallika Sherawat, has been cast as Farah Khan, a character from Catherine’s military past. Khan’s son is kidnapped and it’s up to Cath and McGarrett to try and save him in Afghanistan. For those who missed it, this will be Michelle Borth’s last episode. SPOILER!!! Executive producer, Peter Lenkov, assures fans that Cath does not die. Borth even teased (on Twitter) that the door may be open for her character to return.

Keep your eyes peeled for Gary Fritts, a real life SEAL (retired), who has been a military advisory on Hawaii Five-0 for the last three years. Tough guy, Kala Alexander reprises his roll as Kawika (surprisingly not listed a recurring) while Duane “Dog” Chapman appears for the second time.

While McGarrett and his Five-0 task force were battling a cell of hateful and toxic home-grown terrorists, the Friday night lineup was battling its perennial nemesis, the Springtime weekend.  Timeslot rival Shark Tank may have pulled in the night’s highest rating in the 18-49 demo, but Five-0 won the hour in total viewers and snagged second place overall for the night’s total viewer tally.

The ratings for “Pe’epe’e Kanaka (Those Among Us)” continued the April  Springtime trend — a 1.3/4 rating in the 18-49 demo with 9.26 million viewers. These figures will undoubtedly increase once the Live + 7-day DVR viewing stats are factored in.

Hawaii Five-0 Says Aloha to a Series Regular

April 28th, 2014 by

Hawaii-Five-O-4x21-Makani-Olu-a-Holo-Malie-2-658x370

Love her or hate her, Michelle Borth’s character, Catherine Rollins, has grown from McGarrett’s favourite favour-provider in Season 1, to providing some much needed female balance on the male dominated Five-0 team in Season 4.  This turned out to be particularly valuable when series regular Grace Park took some time off earlier this year.

Friday’s episode will be Rollins’ swan song as we learn more back-story of her time in the military. It’s unfortunate that this character development didn’t occur earlier, which seems to be a common shortcoming with featured female roles such as Jenna Kaye (Season 1 & 2 played by Larisa Oleynik) and Lori Weston (Season 2 played by Lauren German). All three started with much promise only to see their story lines fizzle before leaving the island. Hopefully, the introduction of female regular characters in the future will be met with more balanced presentation.

As of yet we haven’t heard any word on Michelle Borth’s upcoming projects, but we will keep you up to date as details are released.

We at Hawaii Five-0 Undercover wish Michelle all the best on her new path!

 

Up Next on Hawaii Five-0 “Pe’epe’e Kānaka”

This week’s Hawaii Five-0 raises an interesting question – “How well do you know your neighbours?”

Think about it- whenever an unimaginable tragedy strikes, the media is quick to interview those in close proximity to the perpetrator. Those interviews usually reveal a common theme about an unassuming suspect – a nice quiet neighbour who never made a fuss.

In today’s world of gated communities, six foot high privacy fences, and a societal “fear of strangers”, could you, with any kind of certainty, say that those who live close to you aren’t up to something untoward?

On a more fun note, this is Hawaii Five-0 stunt coordinator Jeff Cadiente’s (“The Crow, “24″) second outing as a director.  That’s sure to mean some fun action sequences!

Sunny Weekend sounds like the name of a Connery-era Bond Girl, doesn’t it? She may not be tangling with 007, but “Sunny Weekend ” seems to be Hawaii Five-0′s latest adversary in the “same day” viewer numbers.  As a matter of fact, all Friday shows have suffered in the past few weeks as warmer Spring weather seems to have kept viewers outside instead of home watching television.  But the good news comes in the form of the Live+7 DVR figures for the Fan-built Five-0 episode, “Ho’i Hou (Reunited),” supporting the idea that viewers are out playing on Friday, but watching the show later on.

“Ho’i Hou” initially brought in a 1.4 overnight rating in the 18-49 demo. A week’s worth of DVR viewing brought that demo rating up to 2.3 — a 64% increase.  Total viewers rose from an overnight figure of 9.674 million up to a seven-day tally of 13.028 million, adding 3.354 million viewers  for a 35% increase.

Hawaii Five-0 is searching for locations

April 18th, 2014 by

We occasionally see a comment on social media from someone living on Oahu who has received “the note” on their front door.  ”The note” being the correspondence left behind after a location scout from Hawaii Five-0 spied a home they might want to film in, only to find the residents aren’t home.  And we’re always a bit surprised when someone says “not interested.”  After all, who wouldn’t want to the opportunity to meet Alex O’Loughlin, Daniel Dae Kim, Grace Park and Scott Caan, and have their home featured on a television show with a world-wide audience? But after reading this article from the Star Advertiser, their reticence to disrupt their lives is a bit more understandable.

The actors are on vacation, production crew members have joined other local film and TV projects, and the Diamond Head soundstage is buttoned up.

But even though “Hawaii Five-0″ is on hiatus until July, with the final episodes of the current season still to air on CBS, location manager Timmy Chinn is already scouting for next season.

It’s the never-ending cycle of a successful TV series, Chinn said. And he could use your help (again).

He needs more locations: more houses, more restaurants, more storefronts, more warehouses. He’s got a list.

“I would like to find more upscale mansions,” he said. “We want something on the beach. A school, too. I’m looking for a school. We’re looking for a very nice conference room up in the air, like a penthouse conference room with a view.”

Finding a mansion isn’t the hard part, he said. The hard part is finding a doorbell. Or a door to knock on.

But once he reaches the owner, it’s not uncommon to discover that the house has an agent.

Dozens of homes are so sought-after that their owners are represented by management companies, Chinn said.

This season, “Five-0″ shot more in Kahala, Kaimuki and Palolo because the production headquarters moved from the old Hono­lulu Advertiser building at the start of Kapiolani Boulevard to the state film studio at Diamond Head. It didn’t pose many problems.

“We forget we are in Hawaii,” Chinn said. “We moved maybe three or four miles. It’s opened up new neighborhoods to us.”

The show used big exteriors this season as well. It opened with a helicopter taking off from inside Aloha Stadium and will finish with an episode that required the closure of Kala­kaua Avenue in Wai­kiki, from the point where Kuhio Avenue branches off of Kala­kaua up to Lewers Street. On a Sunday morning. For three hours.

The show uses hundreds of locations each season, including 60 to 70 houses.

“Five-0″ sets up one day, shoots one or two scenes the next day and then cleans up. It can be traumatic for the homeowner, Chinn said.

“We are a huge show,” he said.

“We are in your living room. We are in your kitchen. There are people all over the house. But when they yell cut, we’re gone. They yell cut, and we pack up everything and we are out in half an hour and you’re going, ‘What just happened?’”

And all that for about a minute or two of actual screen time.

Some locations, especially homes, become recurring sets that are used several times a season.

While the first time is usually exciting for the owners, the experience can become tiresome, and the onus is on “Five-0″ to keep the property owner happy, Chinn said.

“Over time you get to know us,” he said. “You know my face. You know the set decoration guys. But then we are gone.”

Chinn decided he could improve the relationship. He wants to not just give property owners a place at a Sunset on the Beach premiere or at the season wrap party, but to also invite them to hang out with his production team during the events.

“You want to get them more involved personally,” he said. “I imagine making them part of the ‘Hawaii Five-0′ family. If your house is part of the show, you are part of the crew.”

AND that’s a wrap …
