  • Flanders did a decent job, as did guest star Brenda Scott, but all that neediness and silliness of the drug scene just sends me into a non-interested zone

      Hawaii Five-O gets into the drug scene with this first season episode called Up Tight. It was only a matter of time before they did an episode on the drug situation considering this show began in the late sixties. The impetus for the story is a young woman, high on drugs, who

      dies from a fall from a cliff. Danny Williams (James McArthur) had tried to talk her out of it, but he wasn’t successful.

      Things get tense when the girl’s father seeks revenge on the man who gave his daughter the pills. It’s an interesting spin on things.

      There’s a lot of weirdness to this ...


      • story, especially when Ed Flanders, as the villain of the piece, gets a dose of the stuff himself and goes wandering around Hawaii.

        I’ve seen so many drug stories like this one that I’m actually tired of them. I realize this was made back before a lot of the stories I’ve seen since, but

        the result is the same for me. I’m bored by them, especially the spaced out music.

        I’m just not thrilled with Hawaii Five-O: Up Tight. Flanders did a decent job, as did guest star Brenda Scott, but all that neediness and silliness of the drug scene just sends me into a non-interested zone.
