"Hawaii Five-O" takes on its fifth season with 25 action-packed episodes on and off the Hawaiian Islands. The returning core cast gets a full time addition in Jorge Garcia as Jerry Ortega. The show's basic case of the week premise gets boosted by some longer story arcs, including one in which Danny gets a very unfortunate trip to Columbia courtesy of his brother, the effects of which will last several episodes. McGarrett has a long-awaited final confrontation with Wo Fat. Kono will get a marriage proposal and, maybe, a wedding, if she can keep the expected guests alive long enough to get them there. Chin gets enmeshed in yet another Internal Affairs tangle. There's plenty of action, along with the tangled storylines fans have come to expect, and who would want to miss the priceless interaction between McGarrett and Captain Lou Grover (Chi McBride), two law men who just don't see eye-to-eye.
This reviewer really enjoyed a couple of the late season episodes. In one, Kono is stranded at sea and must rely on survival skills taught her by her mother. In another, preparations for Kono's wedding are interrupted by the frantic search for a missing tactical nuclear weapon. Anyway, it's all good fun, and recommended to fans of the series.
