In the tenth season of Hawaii Five-O, out December 14th from Paramount Home Entertainment, there are a lot of exotic bad guys. The first episode is about an IRA terrorist, a man who dresses up like a priest and tries to get weapons and explosives through Hawaii. Why someone would want to get weapons through Hawaii in order to bring them back to Ireland for the purposes of terrorism, I have no idea. But he seems like a nice enough sociopath, and he has a hot chick accomplice, so that’s alright.
Then there’s an episode about a super-rich Greek guy and his giant-ass boat that is taken over by armed thugs. And then there’s the European babe tennis star who defects with her boyfriend. And I’m thinking, what’s with all these exotic foreigners, Hawaii Five-O? Is Hawaii itself no longer exotic enough? The palm trees and the random girls in bikinis and the smoking babes that populated every episode needed some sprucing up? A little added sex appeal?
Whatever. I’m just stretching for something to say, really. It’s Hawaii Five-O. It’s fun. The DVD set is good to have around because you can always throw on an episode and enjoy it. And it’s Season Ten, on DVD now. And that’s all I got.
