Did You Know?


McGarrett gets a call from a Harry Logan (Patt Patterson), from Washington, D.C. Just before Logan is shown on-screen, there is an establishing shot of what was apparently supposed to be the Capitol Building in Washington. The domed building shown, however, is the Pennsylvania State Capitol in Harrisburg (which bears little resemblance to the National Capitol Building in Washington). See more »

A very good episode though I predicted the way this one would end...
1 November 2011 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

This episode of "Hawaii Five-O" begins with a guy having a heart attack on an airplane en route to Hawaii from the mainland. The police find a key to a locker on him and when they check, they find an assassin's rifle and scope! But, the man dies and they have no idea WHO the intended target is. McGarrett and his band of merry men have some idea of who the intended might be--and the trail leads to two rival mobs on the island and a mobster visiting from San Francisco. Can they manage to stop whoever will likely be sent to replace the dead man--even if they really have no idea who the victim will be?! This episode is pretty good. Yes, I predicted the ending but it was still a decent ending. It also helped that you have a few good actors here--Nehemiah Persoff and Sal Mineo--in one of his last roles before he was murdered in real life. Worth seeing.
