Welcome to Season Three! Wo Fat is back in "...And a Time to Die"; and in "Trouble in Mind", Nancy Wilson is singing more blues than jazz. Come for the State Dept. hassles, stay for songs.

Book em Danno episode 26
It's a short episode as I don't have a lot to say about the Season 2 finale, episode 25 "Kiss the Queen Goodbye". I also do a quick little season 2 wrap-up.

Book em Danno episode 25
It's time for a two-parter! In part one of "Three Dead Cows at Makapu'u", Five-O is looking for a brilliant scientist who seems to have recreated his deadly bacteria and in part two, they're looking for the test tube containing this death formula. Mild trigger warning for, well, a dead cow at the very beginning of part one and a brief discussion about it at the beginning of my commentary.

Book em Danno episode 24
It's an old season 2 episode, episode 22 "Nightmare Road", and a new season 2 episode, episode 18 "Lekio". Come for the questionable science and dramatic evil plots of the classic and stay for the quick wit and stolen bodies of the reboot. Also, James Caan calling son Scott "Hairdo". It's magic.

Book em Danno episode 23
Dan Budnik is back to talk a couple of season 2 episodes. In episode 20 "Cry, Lie" Chin Ho is accused of bribery and in episode 21 "Most Likely to Murder" the wife of a police officer, who is Danny's friend, is murdered. It's Martin Sheen with a mustache and Tom Skerritt without one. Spoiler warning! Spoilers for "Cry, Lie" happen about 41:35 to 47:18; spoilers for "Most Likely to Murder" happen about 1:34:17 to 1:52:09. Better yet, watch before you listen.

We're in the back half of season 2 with episode 18 "Killer Bee" and episode 19 "The One with the Gun". Five-O is dealing with a string of puzzling kidnappings and then chasing after a man looking for his brother's killer. This episode has been blessed by John Colicos and Jack Soo in a fabulous robe.

Book em Danno episode 21
Three -yes three!- season 2 episodes! A bomber intending to kill Steve only blinds him in "Blind Tiger"; "Bored, She Hung Herself", the infamous lost episode of the show; and Steve tries to help an AWOL seaman in "Run, Johnny, Run". Marion Ross and Christopher Walken. You can't miss.

Book em Danno episode 20
It's all about dangerous games in "The Joker's Wild, Man, Wild" and a brilliant, but deadly heist in "Which Way Did They Go?" William Windom is present in one of these season two episodes. This is not a drill! Just a heads up: There is a brief discussion about sexual assault and there's a trigger warning beforehand.

Book em Danno episode 19
Just about half-way through season 2 with episode 11, "Leopard on the Rock", and episode 12, "The Devil and Mr. Frog". Five-O has their hands full, first babysitting the uninvited, largely disliked leader of an unnamed country, and then tracking down a kidnapper in possession of the ransom money.

Book em Danno episode 18
Two more Season 2 gems with "The Singapore File" and "All the King's Horses". Take a cruise with Marj Dusay and grow some flowers with James Gregory. There's also several hired killers. For flavor.

Book em Danno episode 17
Episode 7 of Season 2, "Sweet Terror", features a fun terror plot headed by an eccentric villain. Episode 8, "King Kamehameha Blues", just straight up gives me the blues. There's ranting, raving, and Kono speculating about using a giraffe to commit a theft. Tune in.
55 minutes | Sep 25, 2020
Book em Danno episode 16
Episode 16 features two more second season episodes. "Savage Sunday" calls Five-O in on their day off to take care of some Latin American revolutionaries and "A Bullet for McGarrett" features a seriously mesmerizing Eric Braeden. But then isn't he always?

Book 'em Danno episode 15
Season 2 is just getting started. In episode 3, "Forty Feet High and It Kills!", Wo Fat is back, baby, and kidnapping...Grandpa Walton? And in episode 4, "Just Lucky, I Guess", Five-O is searching for a killer and a witness. Come for my excessive praise. Stay for my complaining.

Book 'em Danno episode 14
Episode 14 sees season 2 of Hawaii Five-O kick off with a murderous life insurance scheme (though it's not deadly how you think)in "A Thousand Pardons--You're Dead!" and then continue with a man carrying out a plot twenty-eight years too late in "To Hell With Babe Ruth". Danno goes undercover and Steve learns about ninjas. That's certainly one way to kick off a new season.
43 minutes | May 22, 2020
Book 'em Danno episode 13
It's the final episode of season 1, "The Big Kahuna" and a quick little season 1 wrap-up. The Governor would like you to stick around for the final tallies.
59 minutes | Apr 24, 2020
Book 'em Danno episode 12
Season 1 of Hawaii Five-O is winding down with episode 22 "Not That Much Different" and episode 23 "Six Kilos". There's peace demonstrators, a shooting, a heist, and Steve undercover in some very fetching aloha shirts. Quality entertainment.
95 minutes | Mar 27, 2020
Book 'em Danno episode 11
Episode 11 is another long one, this time because I'm covering three episodes: "Along Came Joey" and the two-parter "Once Upon a Time". These eps will put your emotions through the ringer, so gird your loins accordingly.
132 minutes | Feb 28, 2020
Book em Danno episode 10
Episode 10 is extra long and extra special due to very special guest Dan Budnik from the Eventually Supertrain podcast joining me to talk about two of my favorite episodes from the first season, "The Box" and "One for the Money". Spoiler alert! We talk about the endings of both of these eps. "The Box" spoilers run from about 50:34 to 58:27. "One for the Money" spoilers happen from about 1:53:04 to 1:59:38.
57 minutes | Jan 24, 2020
Book 'em Danno episode 9
In this out-of-the-norm episode, I talk about "Face of the Dragon" before switching to the pilot episode of the 2010 reboot, aptly titled "Pilot". The plague, Uncle Fester, human trafficking, Spike and Daryl, arms dealing, espionage, shaved ice...there's a lot going on here.
67 minutes | Dec 27, 2019
Book em Danno episode 8
Episode 8 of Book 'em, Danno is full of...well...Danno. First he's shot and held hostage in "King of the Hill". Then he goes undercover after failing to save a young woman in "Uptight". Come for the Yaphet Kotto excellence, stay for the acid trips.
