“Show#23 of Websouffle’s Hawaii Five-0 Podcast Review – “Ua Lawe-Wale” S2E2 with Jools of “The Five-0’s”

Here is the latest ‘Hawaii Five-0’ Podcast review of Season 2, Episode 2, airing September 26th and entitled, “Ua Lawe Wale” or ‘Taken’. Jools of The Five-0’s talked with me this week about our reaction to the much “calmer” follow-up to the premiere episode of the 2nd season of the show.

We discuss our impressions of the new girl on the team, Lori Weston, fashion changes we’ve noticed, the show traveling to Lanai, whether Kono is being left in the dust by the team, the McDanno “horseguement”and of course our “Theme” discussion of how the title of the episode ties into all the characters and the crime story of the week.

Please join me next week for our discussion of the 3rd episode, entitled, “Kame’e”. Thank you for listening and commenting.





     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.

My third interview in the “Hawaiian Blogger Interview Series” was with Ryan Ozawa. Ryan works and lives in Oahu and is involved in just about every facet of media and technology you can think of.

He is best known as the creator and host with his wife, Jen, of possibly the most popular podcast on “Lost” called “The Transmission” which is how I got to know about him.  Last year, when the series ended, “The New York Times” profiled him in an article entitled, “Finding Themselves In Lost” which I highly recommend you read!

Ryan’s was the only “Lost” podcast broadcasting from the actual location where Lost was filmed on the island of Oahu. I thought that his audio episodes offered one of the most insightful looks at “Lost” and had the special bonus of his knowledge of where most of the scenes were filmed. For my blogger series, I was interested in Ryan’s point of view on the reboot of Hawaii Five-O, which he chose not to focus on in a dedicated podcast. Ryan was the first to encourage me to do my own podcast which is how the “Hawaii In Vermont” Podcast came into existence.

In this interview we talked about his former Lost Podcast, how he got his start podcasting, his opinions on the impact of tv filming on location in Hawaii, and how he and other locals view the two shows.
You can keep up with Ryan on his Hawaii blog, at HawaiiWebLog.com. To listen to Ryan’s own podcasts you can search on the Internet for “Popspotting“, his pop culture podcast or for more on “Lost”, you can search for “The Transmission” to find out when Ryan and Jen will be posting their next and probably last episode about the show. Also, don’t forget to be on the lookout for his witty preview articles of new Hawaii Five-0 episodes on the website NonstopHonolulu.com.
Again, stay tuned for the final Hawaiian blogger interview in this Special Edition of the “Hawaii In Vermont” podcast. It is with Wendie Burbridge, blogger for the Hawaii Star Advertiser’s Pulse website with her own Hawaii Five-0 blog entitled, “Five-0 Redux.”
Also, don’t miss our next regular episode of “Hawaii In Vermont” which will review the newest Hawaii Five-0 episode scheduled to air Monday, March 21st and entitled, “Na Me’e Laua Na Paio” (Heroes and Villains.) 

Thank you and Aloha!
