Meet Hawaii Five-0′s newest member

July 16th, 2014 by

The name of Hawaii Five-0’s newest cast member has been revealed in a TV Guide exclusive. Much in demand actress Amanda Setton has been cast to play trainee to medical examiner Max Bergman (Masi Oka.) The exotic beauty was most recently seen on the Robin Williams’ comedy The Crazy Ones, and prior to that, played pushy office assistant, Shauna Dicanio on Fox’s The Mindy Project.

Earlier this month TV Guide reported Season 5 would bring a new love interest to Five-0 boss Steve McGarrett, and since Max already has a girlfriend (played by Willis-Moore offspring Rumer Willis,) could it be that Setton’s character Dr. Mindy Shaw, will fill the slot left by Michelle Borth?   Many fans were upset at the announcement that Borth’s Catherine Rollins was being written off the show, so any new love interest will be met with much skepticism from many, particularly after we witnessed a heart-broken McGarrett in tears upon hearing Cath was staying in Afghanistan.

 We here at 50undercover wish Amanda the best of luck, both in her role and in her reception from the fans.  Unfortunately, female actors cast on the show (other than original member, Grace Park) haven’t always been met with wholesale acceptance from some on social media.  Let’s make this a positive experience and show Amanda the aloha spirit!

Wendie Burbridge Recaps Hawaii Five-0 Season 4

May 15th, 2014 by

VLC00049

From our good friend, Wendie Burbridge (of the Hawaii Five-0 Redux), in a special to the Honolulu Advertiser-

If there is a phrase to describe season four of “Hawaii Five-0,” it would be “to change is to mature.”

A more grown-up version of the CBS series debuted on a new night and time — Fridays at 8 p.m. — bringing in two new characters while saying aloha to another. And while the show kept its action-filled story line moving along at a smart and stronger pace, changes helped “Five-0″ ramp up the quality without losing its focus.

» Change is good. Many fans thought the move to Friday would kill the show, but “Five-0 Friday” seemed to be what the series needed to regain its season one audience numbers. The earlier time slot as well as being the lead-in for Tom Selleck’s cop family drama “Blue Bloods” also seemed to help propel the Hawaii-based series onto the list of the top 20 shows of the TV season.

» Change can be difficult. The season started with “Aloha ke Kahi i ke Kahi” (“Love One Another”), where McGarrett (series star Alex O’Loughlin) broke every law to save his kidnapped girlfriend, Catherine Rollins (Michelle Borth), who had been taken by drug lords. Over the course of season four, we got to know more about McG and Cath’s love for each other and how their careers have intersected.

Yet even their sweet on-screen relationship did not help to save Rollins from being written off the show in episode 21, “Makani ʻOlu a Holo Malie” (“Fair Winds and Following Seas”). It went down like this: Catherine and McGarrett take off to Af­ghani­stan to find the son of a Pashtun man who once saved her life. During their search, McG is kidnapped by the Tali­ban and is forced to leave Catherine behind in Kabul. She is last seen on a black motorcycle, riding off into the Afghan sunset, determined to continue looking for the lost little boy. Fans hope to see Cath come back to McG, but Borth is not returning for season five.

» Change can be encouraging. Chi McBride guest-starred in the season opener and joined the cast as a series regular by November. McBride’s character, SWAT Capt. Lou Grover, moved his family to Hawaii to start a new life, away from a tragic mistake he made as a cop in Chicago.

It was Grover’s episode in the season finale, “ʻO ka Pili ʻOhana ka ʻOi” (“Family Comes First”) as Grover pulls a McG — breaking all the rules — to rescue his daughter Samantha (Paige Hurd) after she is kidnapped by evil computer hacker Ian Wright (returning guest star Nick Jonas). McGarrett offers Grover a spot on the Five-0 task force after he is forced to retire. Next season should be interesting, with the captain (Grover) and the commander (McGarrett) trying to work together without killing each other.

Jorge Garcia also joined the cast this season after he guest-starred as conspiracy theorist Jerry Ortega, Chin Ho Kelly’s (Daniel Dae Kim) old pal from Kukui High, in “Ka ʻOiaʻiʻo Maloko” (“The Truth Within”). His character quickly became a fan favorite, and Ortega’s love of secret government plots seems to have helped McGarrett solve more of the Shelburne mystery surrounding his mother, Doris (Christine Lahti), and her connection to Wo Fat (Mark Dacascos). Ortega found a cypher on the bottom of the Champ box left behind by McGarrett’s father, leading the Five-0 leader to a grave in Cambodia that once held villain Wo Fat’s mother.

Perhaps next season Ortega will help McGarrett finally solve the mystery surrounding his mother and her connection to Wo Fat. If nothing else, he will add a bit of quirky comic relief.

» Change happens. There were many changes for the core four this season. Whether they were good or bad, we know what the team is facing in season five.

Kono Kalakaua (Grace Park) spent half the season “on the run” from the Yakuza with her lover, Adam Noshi­muri (Ian Anthony Dale). This was in part because Park was on maternity leave. While we saw Kono and Adam in several episodes, those scenes were filmed in Vancouver where Park gave birth to a baby boy. It was a happy day when Kono and Adam returned to Hawaii in “O Kela Me Keia Manawa” (“Now and Then”). In the season closer, Kono mentions that Adam has brought up the “M” word — perhaps there’s a wedding on the season five horizon?

Chin seems to have made peace with the loss of his wife, Malia (Reiko Aylesworth), who was killed at the end of season two by bad cop Frank Delano (William Baldwin). In the intense episode “Hana Loko­mai­kaʻi” (“Favor”), he said a final aloha to her at the beach where they first met. Chin’s new girlfriend, Leilani (Lindsay Price), seemed to have a presence this season, but with the news that Price is expecting her second child, Chin may be in for more heartbreak.

Danno Williams (Scott Caan) dealt with his parents’ divorce (Mela­nie Griffith and Tom Berenger played Mom and Pops Williams) as well as the obvious growing pains of having a near-teenage daughter (Teilor Grubbs). His new love interest, Amber (Lili Simmons), seems to be making him a bit happier, but with Danno we never really know. Caan was sporadically pres­ent during the season — in one episode and hardly in the next — but with the news of his impending fatherhood in real life, fans can only hope we see Danno in season five.

McGarrett’s ohana has grown, as his sister, Mary Ann (Taryn Manning), returned home after adopting a little girl. Unfortunately, he seems to have lost not only his girlfriend, but his Aunt Deb (played to perfection by Carol Burnett), who came for Thanksgiving to tell him she was dying of cancer.

McGarrett spent a lot of season four trying to find out why his mother seems to have such a soft spot for Wo Fat. At one point he thought Wo Fat was his half-brother, even having Max (Masi Oka) test the bad man’s blood to see if they were a DNA match.

So when Wo Fat returned in Friday’s season finale, we did get a bit of a cliffhanger. Not a huge hang-onto-the-edge-of-your-seat ending, but one that gave us something to think about for season five.

In the season finale, Wo Fat breaks out of a Colo­rado supermax prison after it seems Doris aided his escape. He shows up in Hawaii, only to kill Ian Wright and free Samantha Grover. While he’s still in the wind, the message he has Samantha deliver to McG is that they need to talk. That’s a meeting fans can’t wait to see in season five.

So perhaps one of the biggest “Five-0″ changes will come next season: Wo Fat turns out to be a good guy?

What fun would that be?

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.

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!

Hawaii Five-0 fans are known for having strong opinions on the direction they want their favourite show to go, often sharing those views on social media. In a ground breaking move, fans have spent most of this season crafting their very own episode by voting on various elements of the show. Check out our recap here.

How do you feel about this kind of interactive television? If CBS does something like this next year, what would you like to see them do?

Watch below as the cast talk about the making of this fan built episode.

 

Beach bums may recognize guest star Krista Allen from her role as Jenna Avid on Baywatch. Watch for her at Chin’s high school reunion – former flame, perhaps? Sorry folks, doesn’t look like she will be re-enacting running down the beach in slow motion while wearing a skimpy red Baywatch bathing suit.

Another Lost actor is back on the island. Mackenzie Astin appeared in only one episode as a pivotal character from Kate’s past. Seems like once an actor works in Hawaii, the island isn’t done with them!

Is Hawaii Five-0 losing a beloved character?

March 3rd, 2014 by

Masi Oka fans will know that before he brought the socially awkward Dr. Max Bergman to life, he played the time traveling Hiro Nakamura on Heroes. Although the details are remaining a secret, we do know that “Heroes Reborn” will be made into a 13 episode mini-series to air in 2015. The original NBC show followed the lives of ordinary people who discovered they had superhero powers and their plan to save the world.

No cast announcements have been made to date but series creator Tim Kring teased that some of the show’s original cast will be included. Oka offered the following teaser tweet.

 

 

Does this mean that Hawaii Five-0 may be losing it’s beloved coroner? Highly unlikely. With the Bergman character in a supporting role and with the Heroes series only running for 13 episodes, Oka could very easily film Heroes during the Hawaii Five-0 hiatus.

Other Heroes alum that have appeared on Hawaii Five-0 include Greg Grunberg (ep. 2.8), James Kyson (ep. 1.20), Robert Knepper (ep. 4.13), and George Takei (ep. 3.11)

January 16th, 2014 by

It’s reunion week on Hawaii Five-0 as one of the notable guest stars has worked with members of the cast before.

 

 

Robert Knepper (seen questioning Chin in the above clip) also appeared as Stanley Nawalicki in last summer’s movie R.I.P.D. which was based on a comic by none other that Hawaii Five-0 Executive Director, Peter Lenkov. Lenkov also co-wrote Friday’s episode. He also had a recurring role on the scf-fi hit Heroes along side Masi Oka (aka Dr. Max Bergman). Knepper is probably best known for his role as bad guy Theodore “T-Bag” Bagwell from Prison Break.

Papa McGarrett (William Sadler) is back this week. Watch for him in the flashback clips with Chin Ho as we learn more about Chin’s past.

Up Next on Hawaii Five-0 “Pukana” with preview clip!

December 19th, 2013 by

After last week’s solemn Pearl Harbor episode, I am hoping for some levity in the midst of murder and mayhem on Hawaii Five-0 this week. Of course, Max and Kamekona will bring the chuckles.

 

Two over sized elves on the shelf will bring the comic relief

 

The gang is all together for this Christmas episode but you can bet that not all is well for the Five-0 team. Chin finds himself in peril once again just as his romance with with Leilani starts to heat up. That guy just doesn’t have any luck.

 

Looks like trouble for Chin

 

The Hawaii Five-0 writers once again tease about the contents of a mysterious box, in this case, a safe. Other boxes of note – the CHAMP box (contents included clues to Doris McGarrett’s non-murder) and the box with a HEAD!

Which leaves the question….

WHAT’S IN THE BOX THIS TIME?
