Life on the Set:
Before we continue with the pictures from the set, I just want to thank NinjAloha50@ for all the hard work of stalking the filming and posting all the pictures from the set again this week. I do not know who you are, but you are a star. And I also want to thank you for adding your signature on these pictures at such a reasonable place.
There is nothing more annoying than a logo right across the bodies of the actors – really, what do you get out of adding your signature across everything and spoiling the whole picture? For that reason, I rarely share or post links to any pictures here, from people who spoil pictures like that.
Posted by The Ninja on 11 August 🙂
And a little video of the action:
Please make sure to visit the Ninja’s Twitter account to see the many pictures that were posted.

- I just want to mention here that some fans told Kohei that he tagged a fake Alex account in his post – and he thanked them and changed it. Fantastic to see that there are fans who care and respect their idols

The words of a fangirl:
Alex & Friends:
- Taken at the 19th Annual “Walk in the Country” event for the ‘Boys and Girls Club of Hawaii’ at Lanikuhonua at Ko Olina – another great picture of Alex with a young fan/friend. There will most probably be a lot more pictures popping up from the event. 🙂
Some Trivia for the week:
- Community Voices Post Gazette -TV Q&A with Rob Owen
Question: What is going on with “Hawaii Five-0”? Have watched it from the beginning and it seems as though they are not using Scott Caan very much. In fact some weeks he is not even on the show. They seem to be using the actor from the police force more and more. I would like to see them go back to the original four characters. – LU, MARS
Rob: I actually received and ran this question earlier this year but the non-response was unsatisfactory. So when I spotted Caan at a CBS party earlier this week, I was able to get a response straight from him. “I do five episodes less than [series star] Alex [O’Loughlin],” said Caan, who lives in Los Angeles while the show shoots in Hawaii. “I just do a couple of episodes less so I can come home to see my family and stuff. They were cool about it so we just all came to that.”
Thank You Rob for asking and a big Thank You Scott for answering it clearly. (And it was good to see that Scott took the time to represent the Hawaii Five-0 cast and show at TCA)
I myself would have preferred a Danny that could be available full-time, because Steve and Danny has been the centre of the show from the start. But I hope fans will stop complaining now when Scott (Danny) is not in episodes and other actors take his place. It is HIS choice to do less time on the show. If you are a fan of him, respect that. He has been doing it for 2 seasons already (since the beginning of Season 4, long before Kacy even got pregnant). I think it is high time for the complaining fans to get used to it by now.
My Pet Peeves:
- My Pet Peeve this week ties in with the trivia I mentioned above. Why can’t people be satisfied with pictures that are posted from the set. Whenever anybody posts a picture of the cast, most of the comments always ask where those actors are who are not on the picture. If they are not in Hawaii and not part of an episode and not in the picture, and nobody answers them – why keep asking? Rather be grateful for those in the pictures and for the privilege of getting those great picture that are posted.
As an example – this great picture posted by Daniel Dae Kim on Instagram, where many of the comments repeatedly ask where some actors are:
Most ‘interesting’ search for the week:
- does alex o loughlin have a pilot license
I realised something when I looked up to which post the search must have taken them. We posted a Whiteout Premiere video where Alex jokes about him buying a plane and flying there – and we never told the readers specifically that he was of course joking – oops. Although the name of the post should be a hint, I think: ‘Sarcastic’ Alex – Whiteout Premiere, September 2009
Thought (Tweet) for the week:
There comes a point where you just love someone, not because they’re good or bad. You just love them the way they are.
- It looks like they are no longer taking 8 working days to shoot episodes (maybe because they are shooting over weekends as well). They are 4 days ahead of how I calculated the schedule (working on 8 days per episode). According to the director they wrapped 604 on Friday. So it looks like they will start shooting Episode 605 on Monday.
Once again a BIG Mahalo to everybody who contributed by posting all their pictures and stories on social media for us all to enjoy!
