Up Next on Hawaii Five-0: “Kūpale”

February 17th, 2012 by

We’ll be getting a lesson in Hawaiian history when “Kūpale” airs, with McGarrett’s boyhood mentor, Mamo, appearing as one of the participants in a historic battle reenactment.  Think grown men running around in red loincloths.  OK, never mind – bad idea.  Don’t do that.  Think totally rad tattoos.

Honestly, I’m a bit apprehensive about this episode given that there are not one, but two instances of stunt casting in it, with appearances by baseball’s Shane Victorino and Olympic speed skater Apolo Ohno.  I hope it’s an enjoyable, quality chapter unlike last year’s listless P. Diddy outing, which was memorable primarily for McGarrett’s soulful eyes. OK, fine, that’s what remember.  I have no clue if either Victorino or Ohno can act but I’ve got my fingers crossed, and of course, really, there’s always something to enjoy in each Five-0 adventure.

In an impressive use of social media, the fans of both men seemed to have been instrumental in getting them cast on the CBS show, tweeting their pleas to EP Peter Lenkov over a period of several months.  I think that Peter is quite a sports fan, so I’m not sure the same technique will work with getting former co-stars of Alex and Scott’s on the show, but I think we should give it a shot. What do ya say, Moonlight fans?  Let’s start a twitter campaign to have Sophia Myles and Jason Dohring on Hawaii Five-0.  And maybe a spot for Adrian Grenier and the Entourage crew, while we’re at it.

Hawaii Five-0 gains on Smash

February 16th, 2012 by

None of the three major networks brought in a huge win at the 10 p.m. time slot on Monday, with the audience fairly well distributed between them. Although Hawaii Five-0 brought in the most viewers, NBC’s new show Smash had a very slight edge in the 18-49 demographic.

Up Next on Hawaii Five-0: “I Helu Pū”

February 10th, 2012 by

To be honest with you, I’m ready for a light-hearted episode with amusing banter, carguments, and more smiles than we’ve seen during most of Season 2. Based on the preview for Monday’s show however, it looks like episode 216 is full of drama, violence and payback.  Soooo, I choose to look forward to the reunion of our fearless leader and his “friend-with-benefits,” Catherine at the first annual Hawaii Five-0 Prom.

 

 

When Catherine shipped out, McGarrett seemed to have a sudden epiphany that the lovely lady had become more important to him than he’d previously realized.  In the promo photos that CBS released, we see that the pair do indeed lock lips this time, something that was replaced with a “break-up hug” earlier this season.  Quite a few fans mentioned that omission to executive producer, Peter Lenkov, and apparently he’s heard us.  A big “woohoo” for public displays of affection!  What may work even better is “behind closed doors” displays of affection.  Don’t get me wrong, I don’t want the show to turn into a soap opera, but Steve’s had a rough year and he needs a little TLC.  Any volunteers?

 


“I Helu Pū*” – When Five-0 nearly causes an international incident while on a case, Lt. Governor Denning tells them one of the team members will pay for it with their job, on HAWAII FIVE-0, Monday, Feb. 13 (10:00-11:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network.

Behind the scene peek at James and Scott Caan on set

February 9th, 2012 by
The Daily Mail has shared some fun behind the scenes photos from the set of Hawaii Five-0 where James Caan is guest starring on his son’s show.  Fans of Scott and his dad are thrilled to see the two of them together.

Read the original article here.

He knows a thing or two about shooting guns on screen after starring in the likes of The Godfather and A Bridge Too far.

And James Caan appeared to be passing on some tips to his son Scott as they filmed scenes for his hit TV series Hawaii Five-O.

The pair looked like they were having an exciting time as they sprung into action on a marina in the sunny paradise island.

And James, 71, certainly seemed to be taking a leading role, as he was pictured shooting a revolver during an action scene.

Of course the veteran has plenty of useful experience to offer when it comes to toting a gun on screen.

As a young actor he was able to learn from watching gun-slinging legend John Wayne when they starred together 1966 western El Dorado.

Listen to me Sonny: The Godfather actor was happy to have a chat with his son when they had a break from shooting scenesListen to me Sonny: The Godfather actor was happy to have a chat with his son when they had a break from shooting scenes

 

Big stars: James was the biggest name on set despite the fact the show's star Alex O'Loughlin was also there

He also starred as Sorentino ‘Sonny’ Corleone, son of mob boss Vito Coreone, played by Marlon Brando in the cult classic The Godfather.

It is unclear at the moment exactly what role the Thief star will be playing on the popular CBS show, though the fact he bears such a strong resemblance to his 35-year-old son means it is likely he will play the father of hotshot detective sergeant Danny Williams.

But it already seems he could be making more appearances, as executive producer Peter Lenkov has hinted his character could become a recurring role.

Water we going to do now? No doubt James was wondering what was next on the agenda during a break in filmingWater we going to do now? No doubt James was wondering what was next on the agenda during a break in filming

 

It was not just Scott, 35, who was picking up tips from his old man.

His co-star Alex O’Loughlin, who plays lieutenant commander Steven McGarrett, also seemed to be getting some martial arts training from the karate expert.

He is in good company though – the sixth dan Takayuki Kubota black belt has also gave classes in self defence to the real-life Culver City Police Department.

Hard stuff: James as Sonny, far left, along with his The Godfather co-stars, Marlon Brando, Al Pacino and John CazaleHard stuff: James as Sonny, far left, along with his The Godfather co-stars, Marlon Brando, Al Pacino and John Cazale

Hawaii Five-0 places 2nd behind “Smash”

February 7th, 2012 by

The new NBC musical drama “Smash” won first place at 10 p.m. Monday, with Hawaii Five-0 taking the number 2 slot.

From tvbythenumbers

The first Monday of February sweeps of course saw original programming on all of the broadcast networks. On the heels of a record breaking Super Bowl and great post-Super Bowl turnout for The Voice, would  Monday’s time period debut of The Voice and the premiere of Smash take a bite out of the competition’s ratings? In a word, yes.

NBC won the night with adults 18-49 and total viewers with The Voice pulling a 6.6 adults 18-49 rating from 8-10p, 29% higher than last year’s premiere. Smash debuted to a 3.8 adults 18-49 rating (the half hour breakout was a 4.2 dropping to a 3.4). For a hailstorm of bullets from NBC, click here.

CBS was second on the night with How I Met Your Mother down 0.4 from its last original to a 4.0 adults 18-49 rating. 2 Broke Girls was down 0.3 from its last original but was CBS’s top performer (and the best 18-49 rating for a scripted show) with a 4.3 adults 18-49 rating.  Two and a Half Men was down 0.4 from its last original to a season-low 4.2 adults 18-49 rating and Mike & Molly was also off four tenths with a season-low 3.4 adults 18-49 rating.  Hawaii Five-0 was off a tenth to a 2.7 adults 18-49 rating.

The Bachelor’s 2.6 adults 18-49 rating was even versus last week. Castle was down 5% to a season low-tying 2.0 adults 18-49 rating.

FOX shows took a hit with House down 17% to a 2.4 adults 18-49 rating and Alcatraz down 21% from last week to a 2.2 adults 18-49 rating.

Late-night results are below the primetime data.
