Countdown to #H50 Series Finale🧡 This episode was well into the 7th season, but it felt like my first day. Honestly, it felt like my first day for a long time because I was constantly in a “is this really happening to me” mind set. I’m so thankful for the show and all the amazing people I got to meet and work with. I’ll still be pinching myself when I’m 100 years old. What a ride🌊👩🏽‍⚕️ #wbw 📸: @perryneptune

 

Countdown to the @hawaiifive0cbs series finale🌊 My first Sunset On The Beach back in Season 7. I was so surprised when @plenkov called me up on stage. I froze and turned to my friend @mkik808…“What do I do?” 😂 I was sitting fairly far back, so it took me a while…but I made it! I remember looking out in the crowd thinking, “I hope someone gets a picture of this because I want to show my parents!” Clearly I was still in shock because I forgot that a Shaka also included your thumb. 🤦🏽‍♀️ I’m glad I got three more chances to properly Shaka with that crew! #H50 (I don’t remember where I got this photo, so if it’s you…let me know🤙🏽) #tbt

#tbt 2015 🎥🎥 with #hawaiifive0 lead actor in super cool dude #alexoloughlin 😎 joking with #hawaiianairlines flight attendants. Little did I know that a couple months later I guess starred on episode 607 as “Kai Frontera”. I got my butt kicked at the end! Super cool makeup artist made me look all beat up and bloody, haha . Wonderful working with local cast and crew and support here in Hawaii. World class, first class professionalism! Probably first and last time being an #actor 😁

  • From jounalist Pedro D’Alessandria

This #tbt is from 2013 when I met #AlexOloughlin , the Australian who took the reins of the # hawaiifive0 remake as #stevemcgarrett , in those beloved #CBS junkets . Kind and charismatic, I remember that back then he did not like him very much when he was told of published rumors that he wanted to leave the series. Remember@fabicitaavila? After ten years, tomorrow the final episode of the police drama is broadcast in the US, which remained solid despite airing on Fridays, a day almost dead for American television. The actor suffered various injuries during filming, so it is presumed that he did finally decide that it was time to leave. # hawaii50axn # hawaiifive0cbs #hawaiifiveo # hawaii50 # h50 #tv #tvshow #lovetv #television@viacbsglobaldst#journalist

Friday Night is the Final Episode of Hawaii Five-0 after 10 seasons on the air. It’s hard to believe that almost exactly 11 years ago we were filming the Pilot episode on Oahu with @plenkov

When I found out that I got cast from @katiedoylecasting I was really excited. This was going to be my first speaking role on network TV. However, I didn’t know until I got me first copy of the script and read through that I was going to be the First “Book’em Danno” in the reboot. I grew up in Hawaii, I knew the original and that line and the music are known around the world! I nearly dropped the script.
There are lessons I learned on set that I will never forget and Alex O’Loughlin and James Marsters and the rest of the cast and crew made it an experience I will never forget. #alexoloughlin #scottcaan@danieldaekim #gracepark@jamesmarstersofficial

Thank you to everyone who made Hawaii Five-0 what it is. Enjoy the Finale tomorrow night 9/8C on CBS

  • From Dennis Chun (aka Duke Lukela)

There are so many wonderful memories but it was always special when Laura appeared on the show as Nalani. I am so very grateful for all the thoughtfulness and kindness the cast and crew extended to her. Most of all I am thankful for all the aloha you fans blessed her with. So very proud of her and that she is now part of the Five-0 legacy. Hard to believe that our 10 year remarkable journey ends tomorrow night. Hope you join us for television history.

As Hawaii Five-0 comes to an end tonight I would be remiss if I did not extend a very special and heartfelt thank you to Alex. It was truly an honor and privilege to work with him over the last 10 years. He is a tremendously talented and giving actor and person. He is the consummate professional. For 10 years he worked so hard and unselfishly at making Hawaii Five-0 the quality show it has been. He was a great role model for both the cast and crew. Laura and I say mahalo and wish Alex and his ohana all the best. Ohana forever.

In honor of Hawaii Five-0’s very last episode, I am posting a throwback pic of the time I met the cast and crew while they filmed at my house, including the pup-loving Hawaii resident from Oz, Alex O’Loughlin. At the time, my folks were trying to socialize me by introducing me to as many people as possible. It was a bonus that the throngs of people I got to meet this day were the cool crew and cast members of @hawaiifive0cbs. Best wishes to everyone from the show. Much aloha.🌺 #jackrussellterrier #jackrussell #jrt #jackrussellpuppy #jackrussellsofig #jackrussellsofinstagram #jackrussellmoments #jackrusselllove #dogstagram #dogsofinstagram #instadog #puppy #puppylove #808dogs #hawaiidog #hawaiidogs #dogsofhawaii #smalldog #terrier #h50 #tbt #throwbackthursday #throwback

7 years ago my family went on an unforgettable trip to Hawaii through the Make A Wish Foundation. Before we left, my sister reached out to CBS in hopes of getting us on set of our favorite show @hawaiifive0cbs By some miracle, she got in touch with a producer, and we were invited to the set to watch them film and take a tour. It was an amazing day. @plenkov was so so kind. We were also lucky enough to meet Alex O’Loughlin, Scott Caan, and Pat Monahan from @train It was a great day and one my entire family will never forget. This visit to the set reignited my love of filmmaking and was one of the reasons I decided to finally apply to film school in NYC. (Even wrote about @plenkov in my admissions essay!) Thank you to this wonderful cast and crew for creating this show and for being so kind to my family. Thanks to #shaneseggar for coordinating everything, and to @dwolkove for your kindness! You all brought some light into an otherwise dark year. We are going to miss @hawaiifive0cbs so much! #h50 #hawaiifive0 #fbf

  • From Jason Koger (His prosthetic arms were used in Hookman – Episode 3:15)

Several years ago I was given the opportunity to work on @hawaiifive0cbs during the hookman episode and tonight it ends the show. I didn’t know what to expect from the actors and directors. I didn’t know how you talk to a actor. My experience was nothing short of amazing. Every person on the show from top to bottom treated me like family. Even after the show I have stayed in touch with several of them. They gave me a actor chair with my name on it and sent it home with me. They signed the script and they have became friends. The main makeup artist has family that started in Kentucky which I am hopeful for a visit now. I spoke to #alexoloughlin a couple weeks ago and told him congrats for such a great season. I believe this was so successful bc of each and every person involved with the show. @plenkov thank you for the opportunity and for the successful show. You are truly talented. @jeff_dawn thank you for being right beside me the entire time I was there. Everyone went over and beyond from taking us to a luau to getting my own actor chair. Once I got home I even had @jhalpin2659 call and get me brand new prosthetics. I could go on and on about this experience but will end by simply saying thank you and hope we can see each other again one day. @davidnaylor_1 @instantangie @neume810 @danieldaekim @meaghanrath #hawaii50 #peterweller #gracepark @tkahale808 @justinjohnkimble @mathiasvanwessinger @redsurfergirl @bryspy45 @925wbkr

“Things We Learned About Hawaii From #H50 ″ Episode 1, Pilot

Another trip down memory lane  ….
– Some of the first thoughts shared after the Pilot Episode aired.
Shared by Officer 808 of Hawaii Five-0 UNDERCOVER back in in 2010

So after all the hype it was finally time for the Hawaii Five-0 premiere.  From the first few minutes to the opening sequence.  I was floored.  I mean wow.  This is TV?  Either my expectations were low or this was some high production quality TV.  The title sequence, though updated, echoed the sequence of the original series, with the new McGarrett on the Ilikai, the shot of the Lady Columbia statue at Punchbowl, and the camera fixed to the police motorcycle zipping through Honolulu at dusk.

Right off the bat, the characters are engaging.  Alex O’Loughlin, as the new McGarrett with his military background goes for expediency, while Scott Caan’s Danny Williams tries to keep McGarrett within the lines of acceptable law enforcement.  The biggest difference between The New Series (TNS) and The Original Series (TOS) is the fact that both McGarrett and Danny are both Alpha males, each trying to assert themselves over the other…this is going to make for great TV.  This is a far call from James McCarthur’s Danno, who was definitely the subordinate.  Daniel Dae Kim, off of the sixth season of Lost plays Chin Ho Kelly, who shares a past history with the McGarrett family, but carries with him the reputation of being a crooked cop.  Grace Park returns to TV to play yet again, a former male character Kono Kalakaua (played by Zulu) reinvented as a female, like her role as Boomer in Battlestar Galactica.  She is a former pro surfer turned cop and is cousins with Chin Ho, learning the ropes and earning her keep.

The screenplay, chases and fighting sequences definitely play out like a movie, with very high production quality.  The episode ends leaving the overall season’s story arc a wide space to play out…what else is in the red toolbox?  Did Victor survive being shot and falling into Pearl Harbor…?  We’ll see!

This list evolved out of the smart (a$$) comments that came about from discussions with other locals…so some of this might fly over the heads of you Haoles, so just bear with us. 🙂   It goes without saying that Hawaii Five-0 is a TV show.  It’s not meant to be real.  Some of the portrayals of Hawaii, locals and Hawaiian life will definitely irk and offend some, but come on… if you wanted reality, watch Jersey Shore.

And now, “Things We Learned About Hawaii From Hawaii Five-0” Episode 1, Pilot

1)  Shave ice is a delectable desert for the most discriminating of palates.

2)  We talk the “bird” [pidgin English].  CA-CAW! 

3)  Hawaii is a hotbed and hub for international terrorism and human trafficking.

4)  We don’t like Haoles.  I mean, we *really* don’t like Haoles.

A Letter to #AlexOLoughlin ( & #H50)

The day has finally come!
The last episode of Hawaii Five-0 will be broadcast tonight.
All-around on social media, everybody is talking about what they expect from it, some even what they demand from it, others just what they wish from it. Some even insult the Producer, telling him he does not know the characters he created. Some only have the highest praise and can’t state enough, of how big a part of their lives the show has been. Someone even said it is the worst day of their life – but I don’t think they have experienced much in life, if that is the case.
It all seems like such a lot of noise and hype and I just wanted to find some calm anticipation of something that has been a big part of our lives – and enjoy that is coming to a beautiful end, like everything else in life.
And then I came across something wonderful, that brought me back to why we have this site …
Alex O’Loughlin – 

 We decided to share it with you all

– a beautiful letter that was posted to Alex on his Facebook page:

Robin Schmidtto  Alex O’Loughlin31 March  )

Such a beautiful tribute to Alex!

Thanks, Robin – you are one of the lucky ones who have had the privilege of meeting him.

We have never met him, but we share your feelings.
