Late Hawaii Five-O Post (5pm HST)

2 weeks ago I posed the question ....

.... who was that girl working intelligence on the aircraft carrier supposedly in the Persian Gulf. McGarrett phoned her long distance from Hawaii to ask her to manipulate a spy satellite to track a black Mercedes that they were pursuing, and viola the aerial video gets relayed into his I-phone all the way from the Persian Gulf. Yeah right

Well, last week's Hawaii Five-0 episode introduced "Katherine" as the flame in McGarrett's life. I had a hunch that there was more to her role in the series. The aircraft carrier that Katherine is fictionally assigned to is now docked at Pearl Harbor as even a further indication that Katherine will be in for more air time. There's a subplot in all this. Katherine is dethroning Grace Park as eye candy. Then, too, McGarrett's sister has also been phased into the weekly script. McGarrett's dysfunctional sister, a Lindsey Lohan esque bimbo, rates as eye candy? I'll leave that to the eye of the beholder. Whenever you're watching a hula girl dance, Keep both of your eyes on the hands.

Last week's episode ended with the scene above right out of an Hawaii Visitor Bureau's advertisement. Minor detail, there's only a few tablespoons of sand on that particular beach. But the timing, huh? The sun just about to set. Oh wait, it's just about to rise, isn't it? On this side of the island, the sun sets in the ocean. Thus follows the sun rises over the mountain. 6am in the morning they're having wine and barbecuing marsh mellows. Anyways back to the internecine eye candy reorganization. Hawaii Five-0 only runs for 40-minutes excluding the advertisement, so a 10 minute scene is ¼ of the total show. Time is mutually exclusive to each of the actors/actresses. When I said that "Katherine" is displacing Grace Park as the main eye candy, I meant it as Katherine taking up more minutes, having more lines to read, on the screen than Grace Park. Is it only me, oddly, I never see McGarrett having an extended talk with neither of the two Koreans. Opps, tonight's episode is about to start. End post.

I don't think it's possible for 'Katherine' to steal Grace Park's role as the show's eye candy. She's just too hot. I'm hoping we get to see her in a bikini again soon.

Brad- korean girls are not rare people in Hawaii. The local yobos put Grace Park to shame. I don't mean them korean store females. Sour faces.

You read that story about Maggie Q? How Five-O put out feelers for her? Good thing she wasn't interested. They couldn't afford her anyway. Already a star. Look at her - the star of "Nikita" - Mililani girl done good! Puts Grace Park to shame!

Well... I'm watching The Event right now and waiting for 5-0 to start.

At last week's show there was a night club where almost everyone was Caucasian. Are there really night clubs in Waikiki that are segregated like that? I'm just hoping to see more real local looking people. Maybe tonight?

Ok for a love interest to already enter the picture at episode 3? 4? is bad news. Big crime in Hawaii must not be profitable enough to sell to viewers. Mo' better show sunsets, waves and da kine whatevahs on da beach. Yawn.
