Scoop: HAWAII FIVE-0 on CBS - Friday, December 13, 2013
"*Ho' onani Makuakane" - The attempted murder of a Pearl Harbor veteran leads Five-0 to use decades old evidence to investigate a deadly crime committed within the internment camps on Oahu during World War II, on HAWAII FIVE-0, Friday, Dec. 13 (9:00-10:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network. Actual World War II veterans were extras in the filming of a remembrance ceremony at the Battleship Missouri Memorial.
(*Ho' onani Makuakane is Hawaiian for "Honor Thy Father")
HAWAII FIVE-0 is a contemporary take on the classic series about a new elite federalized task force whose mission is to wipe out the crime that washes up on the islands' sun-drenched beaches. Detective Steve McGarrett, a decorated Naval officer-turned-cop, returns to Oahu to investigate his father's murder and stays after Hawaii's former governor persuaded him to head up the new team: his rules, no red tape and full blanket authority to hunt down the biggest "game" in town. Joining McGarrett is Detective Danny "Danno" Williams, a relocated ex-New Jersey cop - a working man in paradise who prefers skyscrapers to the coastline - but who's committed to keeping the islands safe for his young daughter; Chin Ho Kelly, an ex-Honolulu police detective, and former protégé of McGarrett's father, who was wrongly accused of corruption; Dr. Max Bergman, the quirky coroner; and Chin's cousin, Kono Kalakaua, a beautiful and fearless native, eager to establish herself among the department's elite. Assisting the team is Lieutenant Catherine Rollins, a dedicated military officer with romantic ties to McGarrett. McGarrett vows to bring closure to his father's case, while the state's brash FIVE-0 unit, who may spar and jest among themselves, is determined to eliminate the seedy elements from the 50th state.
