  • This is really the first show of Hawaii Five-O that gives any history of the islands and I like that
  • It has some slow moments, but overall, I enjoyed it
  • That's a pretty astounding cast adding to this interesting tale

      Except for a re-editing of the series pilot as a two-part story that followed this show, Hawaii Five-O: The Big Kahuna is the final episode of the first season of this long-lasting crime show. It focuses on a Hawaiian legend, the goddess of fire, Pele. She is seen by Sam Kalakua, who is a

      descendant of the first Hawaiians and as such is very important to the natives of the islands.

      This is really the first show of Hawaii Five-O that gives any history of the islands and I like that. Along with the beautiful scenery is an abundance of history and it would have been a shame to ...


      • have that overlooked. It’s not that much, but we do get to learn a bit more about Hawaiians and the western influence.

        Naturally, the culprit isn’t really Pele. It’s much more of a man-made scheme, all deriving from the usual greed, but it’s still a nice blend of fable and modernism. It has

        some slow moments, but overall, I enjoyed it.

        Zulu has a bit more to do here as his Kono character’s family has been around for a long, long time and he knows the Pele influence well.

        John Marley stars as Kalakua, with Robert Colbert and Sally Kellerman also appearing. That’s a pretty astounding cast adding to this interesting tale.
