      “Look at that. One day we’ll be strangers in our own land.”

      That’s actually the last line of this episode of Hawaii Five-O called, appropriately enough, Strangers in Our Own Land. It all has to do with development and protecting the land. It begins with the murder of a state official and leads to the capture


      of the culprit.

      Simon Oakland is the main guest star, appearing as a character named Benny Kalua. He appears to be saddened and angry about the death of the state official, who is a friend of his. As often is the case, this isn’t all that it seems to be on the surface.

      There are a couple of ...


      • really nice performances in addition to Oakland’s, especially Milton Selzer. This character actor is often overlooked for his contributions, but he is a darn good actor and he pulls off an important role in this episode of the crime drama.

        While I appreciate the message of Hawaii Five-O: Strangers in Our Own Land, the story isn’t all that

        strong. Though there was some poignancy in the tale, it just wasn’t enough to really capture my interest today. I do think it’s sad that the statement at the beginning of the review is pretty right on. Development of Hawaii has far exceeded what was feared when this episode was filmed. Whenare we going to learn?
