As promised in our last post, the “Hawaii In Vermont” #H50 Podcast has indeed managed to snag a nice little interview with talented Hawaiian Blogger,writer, and teacher  and now reporter, WendieJoy Burbridge!

Wendie, as our listeners know, is a great friend of the show, and writes the “Five-0 Redux” Blog. Hers is one of the few blog reviews of the show with a distinctly Hawaiian point of view, since she lives and works on the island of Oahu!

Today, one day before the Network TV Premiere of the 2nd season of  Hawaii Five-0, Wendie gave us a bit of her Sunday. She told us that the excitement of last week’s 2nd season World Premiere Red Carpet event at Sunset On The Beach keeps on coming and she hasn’t even had time to process it all.

Even this weekend, when we caught up with her she was driving to meet some Five-0 fans who came a long way to celebrate the network premiere tomorrow night and who she was going to Sunday brunch with in Waikiki.

So even though we were unable to Skype with her, we were able to get some audio through an iPhone and I felt it was decent enough to share with our fans!

Our podcast mainly covers her experience being on the Red Carpet for the World Premiere and representing the “Honolulu Star Advertiser” as a reporter there.

Wendie discusses her schedule for that day, how she prepared for her reporting gig and who her favorite interviews were with. She also tells us how she managed to interview stars like Alex O’loughlin and not faint!

In addition, we get a quick lowdown on what’s in store for the rest of us when we finally get to see the 1st episode of the new season, Monday, September 19th and how amazing it will be. Wendie’s husband, Chief, also gives us his perspective as a spectator on the beach that night!

So sit back and relax as we offer up this little appetizer as a precursor to tomorrow night’s premiere episode of ‘Hawaii Five-0’ entitled “Ha’i’ole.”

Make sure to stay tuned here and our facebook.com/alohavermont page for details about when our initial reaction podcast will be posted soon after the 1st episode of season 2 premieres!

Aloha!

Well, an amazing time was had by all last night in Hawaii at the ‘Sunset On The Beach’ Red Carpet Event in Waikiki, celebrating the world premiere of the 2nd season of our favorite primetime drama, the new hit series “Hawaii Five-0”!

I was lucky enough to get to do a little color and commentary with @AlohaBruce at his special UStream Live feed of 3 cameras on the event that his Hawaii-Aloha.com Travel company sponsored. Although it wasn’t the only coverage, it was one of the few with great angles, sound , music and especially glimpses of the stars walking the red carpet at Queens Beach in Waikiki.

Pictures from the coverage, fan interviews  and other fan events arranged by Bruce can be found here at his blog  as well as this SOTB 2011 Picture Gallery!  Here is a link to archived videos from the Live stream so you can experience the excitement for yourselves!

Check back here soon for a @Websouffle Podcast Wrap-up of the fantastic SOTB coverage, star interviews and other blogger  impressions. I will post details about that soon on our AlohaVermont Facebook page. I hope to get writer, blogger @WendieJoy on again for a great discussion of her experience on the Red Carpet as well as how she managed to interview Alex O’Loughlin and other stars of the show without fainting!

In the mean time, check out my friend Mizzoh’s excellent SOTB2 overview at her website, AlexOLoughlinRocks.com and extensive links to the going’s on Saturday night at Sunset On The Beach in Waikiki!

Also, please don’t forget to check out my lovely and talented Hawaiian sis, @WendieJoy Burbridge’s awesome and sublime article of her experience last night on the Red Carpet at her Five-0 Redux Blog here!

Mahalo, and  Check back soon!

According to an exclusive report by Matt Mitovich of TVline.com, The Hawaii Five-0 team will be welcoming a new member — and a possible new love interest for Steve McGarret with the addition of actress, Lauren German to the cast. The actress has been in a lot of TV’s and movies, most well known of which is Texas Chainsaw Massacre (2003.) You can take a look at her experience at her IMDB profile.

Apparently she will be an appointee by the new Governor of Hawaii played by another addition to the cast, Richard T. Jones. She is a former Homeland Security officer and  asked to join the Five-0 task force to keep tabs on the Five-0 Team.

This makes it 5 as the number of cast members added so far to the upcoming season, though there’s no telling how long they will be sticking around! German will joining  Jones (of Terminator: The Sarah Conner Chronicles,) Masi Oka (formerly of Heroes) who will now be a series regular as Max the coronor, Terry O’Quinn (formerly of “Lost”) as Steve’s Navy SEAL trainer  and film star, Tom Sizemore, who will be heading up an Internal Affairs investigation into the Five-0 Team’s activities.

Update: Here is a cool scene from the 2nd Season of just canceled series “Human Target” in which Lauren German is a Spy and tangles with the main character in a very funny way. I think the actress shines in it and shows off her skills!

Aloha!
