Welcome back to WEBsouffle’s Hawaii Five-0 Podcast Blog!

On Podcast Show#27  @WendieJoy (‘Five-0 Redux Blog’) and I discuss the 15th episode of the season, entitled “Mai Ka Wa Kahiko”  (Out of the Past.) Both of us seem to agree with fans posting all over the internet that this was not only an intense and gripping show, but one of the best episodes of the 2nd season, due in no small part to Scott Caan’s amazing performance.

The Official CBS Summary stated:

“A dirty cop from Danno’s past comes to the island to exact revenge on Danno and his family for ruining his life, forcing the Five-0 to find a way to help their teammate.”

Press play on the audio recorder above to hear us talk about:

-Scott Caan and the rest of the cast’s amazing acting

-Actor Peter Greene, who played Danny’s ex-partner, Rick Peterson

-A  “Lost” episode connection

-The Lori/Steve race and Koko Crater Trail

Show#22 ‘Hawaii in Vermont’ Podcast review – Further discussion of “Ha ‘i’ ole” S2E1 with @WendieJoy 9/22/11

Blogger, Writer, Reporter @WendieJoy Burbridge (picture courtesy of The Honolulu Star Advertiser)

@WendieJoy Burbridge is an Oahu native, a great friend of our “Hawaii In Vermont” Podcast (a dear friend of mine, too!) and of course is the author of the The Five-0 Redux Blog on the “Honolulu Star Advertiser.”

Fortunately, this busy lady had some rare free time this week on her long commute home from her day job as a teacher and you can be darn sure I took advantage!  Thanks to technology, we were able to Skype between her car and my computer in Vermont and have an even more in depth conversation than my “initial reaction podcast”  (Show #21) about the new episode of the 2nd season.

I really wanted to get Wendie’s perspective on “Ha ‘i’ ole” because of her two unique points of view.

One point of view we talk about was what it was like for her to have already seen this episode over 2 weeks before it’s Network Premiere at ‘Sunset At The Beach’ in Waikiki on a big screen. I asked Wendie to compare seeing it there to seeing it at home on a tv or computer screen.

The other aspect I was curious about of course, was how being an islander affected her perspective and/or enjoyment of the episode. This was was quite interesting and we learn more about the title “Ha ‘i’ ole” and it’s meaning from Wendie who also wrote about it in her pre-episode post on her The Five-0 Redux blog. We also learn some interesting trivia about the opening cemetery scene and the beautiful singing by the Honolulu boys choir.

We talk about fugitive Steve McGarrett’s Halawa Jail breakout and his appearance. (Apparently it’s not that unusual because breakouts from prison have happened before!) In addition, we also have fun discussing the new character, Max and how all the banter and bromance between Steve and Dannyhappily seems intact. There is the usual probing of the themes and characters of the show which we always include as a part of our discussion. We also give our opinions of the plot and the crazy twist at the end.

Finally, we talk about some of the extras on the just released  DVD of the first season of the show and some of the deleted scenes we have seen and which we wished had been a part of the original episodes they belonged to.

Wendie’s only regret is having met Mark Dacascos (Wo Fat) on the Red Carpet  a few weeks ago, and having to hate his character on the show, even though he was such a nice guy in real life. Oh, well, she will just have to accept having love/hate relationship with him!

Tune in for our next “Hawaii In Vermont” H50 podcast review sometime after next week’s all new 2nd episode of the new season,  “Ua Lawe Wale (Taken.) The official press release for the episode from CBS says:

GOVERNOR DENNING ASSIGNS A NEW MEMBER TO FIVE-0’S TASK FORCE, AND THE HEAT IS ON FOR KONO, ON “HAWAII FIVE-0,” MONDAY, SEPT. 26

Gov. Denning assigns Officer Lori Weston to Five-0 to make sure McGarrett and team follow the new rules set by him and also apply her excellent profiling skills to the task force.  Meanwhile, as Five-0 investigates the kidnapping of a teenage paddleboard champion, Internal Affairs Capt. Vince Fryer continues his interrogation of Kono, on HAWAII FIVE-0, Monday, Sept. 26

Thanks for listening! Talk to you soon, ALOHA!

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!

     Continuing on with our Summer Interview Series with Hawaii Five-0 Bloggers and big contributors to the Fan Community, our latest episode puts the spotlight on the founder of The Five-0’s, ‘Jools‘ and her Hawaiian cohort, @LisaLisa98 of Lisa Woo Designs. We find out the origin of The Five-0 blogs that have “All the Inside Info to Your Favorite Show” and those who are behind it!

       This conversation was very cool because we were able to Skype in 3 different locations this time. Jools hails from the UK in London, I was at a soccer tournament in Pennsylvania, and Lisa was Skyping with us from Hawaii! That’s a span of 11 hours between all of us, so it took some time juggling! In the end I think you will like where our conversation takes us!

      Jools tells us how The Five-0’s fan community and sites work, about international followers and very interesting conversations about ‘Hawaii Five-0″ on the net.

      Some have taken place with the key people connected to the show , along with the fans. She also tells us what you’ll find if you follow her blogs as well as @TheFive0s on twitter!  Jools also has a very ethical policy about cast privacy and what kind of pictures you “won’t” find on the blogs!

      Friend of our show, @WendieJoy is also friends with The Five-0’s, and knows Lisa Woo, on Oahu (it’s a small island, after all!)  Wendie featured her story of being an extra on the set of Hawaii Five-0 for an episode of Season 1, wearing her own costume design in the Five-0 Redux blog, recently!

      Lisa tells us in our podcast too, the whole story of how that came about and her short but meaningful meeting with star, Alex 0’Loughlin! She gifted him with really cool Twitter booklets for the 4 leads that were a labor of love from TheFive-0’s of fans tweets and mentions! You can see examples of those  at The Five 0’s Tumblr blog.
