*** Happy 2020!! ***

It is time to bid 2019 farewell and look forward to the roaring 20’s !!

The 2020’s

The start of a new year gives us that mystical reset button to somehow start a new period of life. Endings and new beginnings allow us the chance to be philosophical and nostalgic – reflecting on the past and contemplating the future.

Looking back at our new year’s posts from each past year, it somehow reflects how our personal lives panned out during that year. However the one thing that these past few years made clear to me, is that a year is not good or bad, because during that one year you might experience something horrible, but something else can also make that specific year wonderful and happy.

Therefor my wishes for my friends these day read more in the line of hopes of experiencing happy and wonderful moments along the line, because wishing for a whole year of only happiness is just not always feasible. And most of the time it is the small pleasures that last longer.

One thing is for sure, the moments spent here with Paula and other Alex fangirls, have been some of the happiest times for me during the past few years.

That is then also my wish for all of us for this new year – lots of more happy moments for Alex, which we can also share here together with you all!

Thank you Jill for this wonderful picture for us to edit.


New Year!

They say ….. #AlexOLoughlin Can Make You Feel Like a Star.

On so many occasions I have seen comments by fans where they mention how Alex can make you feel at ease and special, even when you are nervous meeting him. But that is not only true for fans who meet him. People who worked on the show also mention how he made them feel special.

For this post we have some comments from Karen who works as part of the crew on Hawaii Five-0. She worked with them for season 5 and 6, then left for 2 years and came back to Hawaii about a year ago. Here are some of what she posted over the years.

  • In November with the broadcast of Episode 10:07 Karen wrote this:
simplykaren23  Tonight’s episode a beautiful and wonderful grandma & my aunt had the chance to be a part of the filming while we were in Los Angeles. She had such a wonderful time, the crew made her feel so loved and welcome, Alex O’Loughlin made her feel like a star. Not only is it such an amazing episode but it means a little bit more that my grandma got to play a part of it. She didn’t get much screen time. It’s a quick flash, but the experience she had was worth anything in the world. Thank you Alex, and to the crew for making my grandma so welcomed.
  • Karen’s Grandma also attended the private screening of Episode 10:07 in September


  • On Alex’s birthday in 2015 Karen wrote this: 
simplykaren23 Happy birthday to this handsome mate. Such a hard working, sweet, humble, caring, funny guy. Always a great day when he’s on set. #alexoloughlin #hawaiifive0 #five0ohana
  • In 2016 before she left working on Hawaii Five-0 

simplykaren23  Whelp! That’s a season wrap on this stud… #hawaiifive0  #alexoloughlin  #mcgarrett #h50 #season6finale

And of course all these these beautiful comments from Karen and the great hugs with Alex  make our fangirl hearts happy …

#H50 – a Perfect Pilot?

Hawaii Five-0: Action in Paradise Makes a Serious Comeback

by Kacie Lillejord

for 25YL’s Perfect Pilot Series

19 December 2019

While there are many great shows out there, only a few of them have a perfect beginning—the kind that draws you in immediately and leaves you wanting more. In 25YL’s Perfect Pilots series, we will be looking at pilot episodes we think are flawless. This week Kacie Lillejord looks at the pilot of Hawaii Five-0.

Hawaii Five-0premiered on CBS in 2010. It was the reimagining of the beloved classic series of the same name, which ran from 1968 to 1980. Of course, in 2010 a few things had changed: Kono’s character was cast as a woman and the look was modernized, but that hasn’t stopped viewers from loving it since day one.

For most, Hawaii is paradise. Gory crimes and real-life problems seem like a thing of the mainland, but for the Five-0 team, it’s very real and usually on a daily basis. The show has a way of making paradise into something else for the purpose of its storylines, but it retains the Hawaiian scenery and culture at its core, evening out whatever horror may have befallen the Five-0 team that week.

Hawaii Five-0 has changed cast several times in the last few years, but for the first year and its following six seasons, we had the main characters of Steve McGarrett (Alex O’Loughlin), Danny “Danno” Williams (Scott Caan), Chin Ho Kelly (Daniel Dae Kim of Lost), and Kono Kalakaua (Grace Park). The pilot episode introduces them all, bringing them together to form what would become Five-0.

The Beginning

We are first introduced to Steve McGarrett in South Korea. He is a Commander in the Navy, naturally a tough-looking kind of guy, riding in a convoy and being heckled over his childhood home of Hawaii by Anton Hesse (Norman Reedus of The Walking Dead), a terrorist that he has been after for some time.

It’s clear that Anton is up to something, and when Steve receives a phone call from his father, he’s placed in a bad situation. Halfway across the world in Oahu, his father is in peril at the hands of Anton’s brother, Victor, who wants to trade Steve’s father for his brother. Steve passes a note to a team member to get the local police to his father’s house while he remains on the line with Victor, trying to attempt a negotiation.

Steve’s father basically says goodbye, apologizes for lying to him (Steve has no idea what this is in reference to), and tells him that he loves him. Seconds later, Steve’s convoy is under fire thanks to Victor, who had been tracking him through the phone. Steve does his best to prevent Anton’s death but is forced to kill him, thus ruining any chance he had of negotiating with Victor.

Victor calls Steve back, confirming the death of his brother, and Steve hears the kill shot as his father dies on the other end of the line, screaming a grief-stricken “NO!” before the opening credits roll.

The Middle

We’re back in familiar territory as Steve lands in Hawaii, dressed in uniform, and meets with the Governor of Hawaii, Pat Jameson (Jean Smart). As she puts it, the death of Steve’s father was a wake-up call. She wants to create a task force to go after guys like Victor Hesse and asks Steve to lead it. She offers full immunity and means—the opportunity for Steve to take out bad guys his way with her support. Yet, believing her intentions are political, Steve passes on the offer and then runs into Chin Ho Kelly.

eganinoue  Thank you @renzograciebjj for alway teaching me something new! I will never forget when Renzo and I trained in Brazil at Barra Gracie Rio when I was a blue belt. He didn’t make me tap once but you took me from one submission let me escape to the next submission let me escape to the next submission and he kept doing that to me over and over again. That was the best gift that any jujitsu instructor has ever given me. I learned so much and I’ve always train that way. You taught me something then and still till this day. Thank you Renzo for being my BJJ mentor.
