The most important part of this, of course, for the audience, is the surprise loss of our beloved Chin Ho.

Few shows in history, have had a legendary character removed in this way.

But, by this season, things were getting stale.

The scripts were not as good, and the music was less interesting and more.

I've seen all 281 episodes .

Please: Chin Ho, undercover, and at, that, to major syndicate?

Come on.

Steve... " Chin was too well known... Maybe I should have not have assigned this to him....

Duh.

A short while later, he carries out the investigation with no viable grief or remorse.

He forbades Ho's daughter from amateur detective work, then we she disobeys that, he isn't concerned.

Fight scene between McGarrett and the main villain, looked so phony, like Abbott and Costello.

In Season 10, most crooks give up way to easily.

Almost no chemistry between the two leads, Steve and Williams.

But still, good to watch for true fans.
