'Hawaii Five-0': Playing 'Chicken' With a Jet (VIDEO)

'Hawaii Five-0': Playing 'Chicken' With a JetWhen you're playing the game of "chicken," you have to fully commit. Two people are headed together on a collision course -- the first one to flinch loses the game. On the other hand, if no one flinches -- then everyone loses. And on 'Hawaii Five-0' (Mon., 10PM ET on CBS), that could lead to death.

[Warning: Spoiler alert.]

On the new episode, Navy SEAL Graham Wilson (Adam Beach) is accused of a crime he didn't commit. Wilson is blamed for the death of his wife -- as a result, he goes berserk. The solider grabs a bunch of hostages. He demands that the cops find the real killer -- or else.

Graham is playing chicken, but so are policemen Danno and McGarrett (Scott Caan and Alex O'Loughlin). As a former SEAL, Steve McGarrett sympathizes with Graham. But his partner Danny "Danno" Williams just thinks the guy is a murderer.

'Hawaii Five-O': The Ultimate Drinking GameHanging out in a bar can lead to trouble, and not just a hangover. On 'Hawaii Five-O' (Mon., 10PM ET on CBS), a young woman is murdered and her sister is abducted. Now, Danno and McGarrett (Scott Caan and Alex O'Loughlin) must follow the trail, and track down the missing sister before it is too late.

[Warning: Spoiler alert.]


The missing girl is the teenage daughter of a U.S. Ambassador, and the cops' first clue leads them to a trendy nightclub/bar, where the cops discover that a young man has being drugging young women.

Four Ways 'Hawaii Five-0' Can Stand Out From Other Procedurals

by Joel Keller, posted Oct 5th 2010 2:45PM
Alex O'Loughlin and Scott Caan in 'Hawaii Five-0' on CBSWhy has 'Hawaii Five-0' been a ratings success so far? It's not hard to figure out the formula. It's in a good timeslot that served 'CSI: Miami' well for a number of years. There isn't a heck of a lot of competition (maybe 'Castle,' but that's about it). And having Grace Park in a bikini or otherwise sexy outfit every week doesn't hurt.

But after three episodes, the show still has yet to break out from the procedural shell it's in. There have been signs that the show can become more than just a "case of the week" kind of program, but they're minor at best. So far, the show's been carried by some good action, good chemistry between Alex O'Loughlin and Scott Caan, and the aforementioned Park-in-bikini scenes (can't mention those enough).

Based on those signs, and the legacy of the original series, there are a few ways Roberto Orici, Alex Kurtzman, and their writers can take this show in a direction that makes it stand out from other procedurals.

'Hawaii Five-0' Cast at Comic-Con: Everyone From 'Lost,' Come on Down

by Michael Maloney, posted Jul 23rd 2010 3:20PM
Hawaii Five 0As different as CBS' new fall action reboot 'Hawaii Five-0' is in story, style and structure from 'Lost,' they do share a key thing in common -- location, location, location.

That's partially what drew 'Lost' star Daniel Dae Kim to the project. "I've made no secret of the fact that I really loved living in Hawaii and I wanted to stay," he told a hall full of fans at San Diego's Comic-Con. "But I wasn't going to unless it was a project I really cared about."

The producers aren't shy about the fact they're hoping some of the 'Lost' magic rubs off on their show. As executive producer Roberto Orci joked, "Luckily the rest of the cast of 'Lost' need jobs."

'Human Target' - 'Corner Man' Recap

by Mike Moody, posted Mar 25th 2010 5:03AM
human target corner man recap(S01E09) 'Human Target' jumped back to case-of-the-week mode after last week's back story-heavy hour, but I'm not complaining. Like 'Fringe,' this is one of those shows that constantly delivers solid stand-alone episodes.

This week, Chance entered an underground martial arts tournament to get a fighter off the hook with a dangerous gangster. I was hoping this ep would exploit the 'Enter the Dragon' fighting competition gimmick a little more. I was expecting brutal hand-to-hand combat scenes, tense build-ups to each fight, and opponents that got bigger and scarier as the episode went along.

Instead, the fights kinda seemed to happen in the background. Chance fought a few guys who pretty much looked the same and seemed to go down a little too easily. The real intrigue sprang from all the high-stakes gambling and backdoor deals surrounding the fights.

Kandyse McClure Talks the Demise of Dee, 'Battlestar Galactica'

by Chris Jancelewicz, posted Mar 23rd 2010 10:44PM


Kandyse McClure's 'Battlestar Galactica' character Lt. Anastasia Dualla was certainly behind the scenes to start, even though she played a crucial role. As the central person in the CIC (center-in-command) aboard the rickety battlestar, she was often first to hear the orders coming, and was always on top of incoming enemy Cylons. As the series progressed, she became more and more integral to the goings-on of the crew, and her character blossomed into one of the most riveting arcs of the whole series.

With a year gone by since the finale, McClure looks back on her 'BSG' run with a sincere fondness – enough to the point where she can hardly watch certain episodes. Now living in Toronto, and set to appear at Wizard World Toronto Comic Con, McClure sat down to talk with AOL TV about her life since 'BSG', what it was like being on such a groundbreaking show, and what she learned while walking the halls of the beleaguered battlestar.

Spring TV: Which Pilots Will Crash and Burn?

by Stephanie Earp, posted Mar 23rd 2010 5:32PM


There are two groups of people who get really excited about pilot season: L.A. actors hoping for a break and television writers. Being a member of the latter category, I admit to a tingly feeling creeping over me as word of the shows in development at all the big networks are starting to leak out. While most people are attributing feelings of renewal to the change in the weather, I'm happily anticipating what J.J. Abrams has in store for us this fall.

'Battlestar's' Park Lands on 'Hawaii Five-0' Remake

by Brad Trechak, posted Mar 1st 2010 10:02AM
Tricia Helfer and Grace ParkGrace Park seems to have a thing for television remakes. She shot to fame as Boomer on 'Battlestar Galactica' and now she's going to have a role on the new 'Hawaii Five-0' on CBS. Granted, in between the two roles she also appeared on 'The Cleaner' on A&E with Benjamin Bratt.

She's not the only ex-'Battlestar' babe to keep working. Tricia Helfer now has a steady gig on 'Dark Blue'. Katee Sackhoff just got cast on an unnamed ABC pilot (and had a memorable appearance on 'The Big Bang Theory'). Given both of their statuses on 'Battlestar' as ageless Cylons, it's even conceivable that down the road Park or Helfer will show up on the prequel series.

For those 'Lost' fans, 'Hawaii Five-0' also stars Daniel Dae Kim.

With the addition of Grace Park, are you planning on watching the remake of 'Hawaii Five-0'? Were you planning on watching it anyway?

Maxim is giving us half-naked Cylons

by Brad Trechak, posted Oct 17th 2009 10:02AM
BSG in MaximIn celebration of the upcoming DVD and Blu-ray release of the Battlestar Galactica movie "The Plan," Maxim is having a cover and series of photos of the two sexiest Cylons in the 12, Tricia Helfer and Grace Park. Not that we need anything to be released in order to appreciate the half-naked bodies of Ms. Helfer and Ms. Park. Dictionary Day would be an adequate reason for me to admire these hard-working actresses.

Notice how all the female Cylon models are quite attractive and the males ... aren't quite. For the females, we have Grace Park, Tricia Helfer, Lucy Lawless, Rekha Sharma and Kate Vernon (who is older, but still quite the knockout). On the male side there are more attractive male-model types (Callum Rennie and Michael Trucco, most notably), but we also have folks like Dean Stockwell, Michael Hogan and Aaron Douglas. When will the latter three be posing for Maxim?

The Cleaner: The Projectionist - open thread

The CleanerAre you watching The Cleaner? It seems to be the cable drama that has gotten lost in the mix of other shows that get more press and acclaim, like Mad Men, Breaking Bad, Weeds, and Rescue Me. But one friend of mine swears that the show is one of the best shows on television right now.

TV shows and movies about drug addicts always bum me out though.

Rumors hit the set of Battlestar Galactica about TV movie

by Jason Hughes, posted Jun 30th 2008 2:21PM
Grace ParkFans of the almost late, definitely great Battlestar Galactica over at Sci Fi can keep their hopes alive that the series may return in the form of those oft-rumored movies. On June 27, Grace Park said that rumors of a Battlestar Galactica made-for-TV film have reached the set, where they recently had their wrap party for the four-year series. None of the actors have been contacted, and as we've been reporting all over the place here on TV Squad, the various actors and actresses are getting snatched up left and right for new shows.

Park's rumor had shooting beginning in August, which seems a tremendous stretch, as most of the new fall shows the actors are appearing in will be filming at that time. It would make more sense to try and film it during breaks. Or maybe it's going to go the route of Razor and feature mostly non-regular actors. Hell, she may have heard about the filming of prequel series Caprica.

Who knows what the hell is going on, but this is the new media. Facts be damned, I love Battlestar Galactica, and if Park had said this shortly before vomiting and passing out drunk off her ass, it'd still be worth a post. Anyone hear anything more?

You have a toaster? Then you may win the 'Make a Cylon' contest

by Richard Keller, posted Mar 30th 2008 3:11PM

If you make a Cylon you can winSo, you're sitting in front of your flat-screen, watching your Season Three DVD of Battlestar Galactica, in anticipation of the new season starting April 4th, and you happen to glance over at your 2-Slice stainless steel toaster. As you stare at your reflection in the gleaming metal you think 'Hey, if I put some flashing lights on the face of that toaster it would look like a Cylon's head. But, who in hell would be interested in seeing something like that other than myself?'

Funny you should think that, because someone is interested in seeing your creation. In fact, three someones in the form of Scifi.com, dvice.com, and Make magazine are willing to judge your work, along with others, to see who can mod or make a Cylon from scratch. If they like what you made they'll give you a chance to show your creation on the SCI FI Channel.

And you thought putting blinking lights on your toaster was stupid, didn't you?
