(Deadline)   Hawaii Five-O writers have run out of ideas, so they're asking fans to write an entire episode for them. No word if all ten fans are willing to do it   (deadline.com) divider line 45

There are no fans of "Hawaii Five-0"

With some minor editing, I could just send some of my boomer slash fiction.

I was going to go with Grace having to do an undercover stint at a strip club, but I like your idea too.

44 minutes of network television just isn't enough time to tell that story. We're going to have to move the series to Showtime and allot a six-episode arc. Also, we need to put aside nine seconds for a title card reading "Everyone else on the squad got killed, somehow."

If you are going to move it to showtime, she can live at a women only nudist resort and every episode starts and ends with her and 4 friends applying suntan lotion, to each other.

Then stop making it "24 Hawai'ian Style". They ran out of ideas, too.

Chin Ho's High School Reunion

Is this unfortunately-named character from the original series or just the reboot?

They should do an episode where Ricardo Montalban plays a Japanese guy.

I knew that Comic-Con San Diego jumped the shark AND did a triple somersault over it when they had panels on Hawaii 5-0 there.

How about: A married couple (2nd marriage each), their 6 children (3 from each side) and their maid all go to Hawaii for a visit. One of the children takes an acient relic from a sacred site. The entire family is mysteriously, brutally, slaughtered....

You know, I had another idea, but this episode sounds Emmy-worth to me.  Film it.

I tend to watch more the colder it gets outside. Not sure if Masi Oki is still on, but he's PAINFULLY awful in that role. Man cannot act.

YES


Turns out the maid did it. With the help of her butcher boyfriend. Turns out she was in the will, and with all of them dead, she'd inherit everything.

There are lots and lots of fans of the new Hawaii 5-0, it's just they can't read or write.

I was going to bring back the Summer Glau character but your idea intrigues me. I'm going to have to give it some thought.

Woman loses top at topless beach.

40 minutes of slow shots.

/Oh and someone gets shot, but who cares.

I watch it and quite enjoy it.  I know it's not as hip or elite as stuff like Breaking Bad or Mad Men, but it's a fun show to just tune into when you're not in the mood to think too hard.  The cast is good at what they do and the episodes are mostly fun.  Plus, a whole lot of former Lost cast members and locations pop up.

/Grace Park does need a sammich, STAT.
 
2013-10-12 01:36:25 PM
It's just not Hawaii Five-O unless it's starring Jack Lord's hair.

/Yes, I'm old
 
2013-10-12 01:48:30 PM
Maybe they could just play this on loop for the full thirty minutes: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jc_ItEm5W54

They all come to the mainland and wind up as lumberjacks. But that's okay.

Ahh, but what role does the quirky cousin play in all this? Maybe he was secretly sleeping with the maid (a-la teacher/student sex scandals). Or maybe he was sleeping with the Butcher and they framed the Maid...

They could spend an episode re-training Steve not to put five shots, center-mass, into a every guy he's trying to just wing, so he can be interrogated.

When that show was new and the subject of much hype, I sat down for an episode.  For an hour, I watched Hawaiian police plan and execute an invasion of North Korea to rescue some guy.

That was the day I realized I am surrounded by stupid people.  Present company excluded, of course.

I don't watch it, but subby's fan count is off by a factor of about a million.

Are you serious? That's really in the show?

Do they think viewers are that stupid or did Breaking Bad corner the market by snagging all the good writers?

Grace Park has to go undercover as a lesbian stripper. With guest appearance by Katee Sackhoff .

I don't care what anyone says. I love this show. It's what replaced Las Vegas as my guilty pleasure TV time.
 
2013-10-12 08:58:25 PM
I watch, but strictly to see Alex O'Loughlin in any and all manner of undress, but that's just me...

Shoe-horn in Boomer and Starbuck scissoring, and I'd give it a watch.

/just kidding, nothing would make me willingly watch this channel.
 
2013-10-12 09:48:08 PM
Oh, let me write it. It will include an apology from the midget for his misplaced unwanted anti gun rant from the last episode I was able to sit through.

LOVE Alex McGalahlagoagingaoiadgnadge but not enough to stomach that crap.
 
2013-10-12 11:54:37 PM
A large segment of fans are going to have something along the lines of "bring back James Marsters.  That's the only reason we watched the show in the first place."  Followed by suggestions to bring in Sarah Michelle Gellar and other Buffy alums.  Followed by the suggestion to turn Hawaii-Five-O into the real Season 8 of Buffy.  And do an amazing job of it.

Phil Moskowitz: Orci and Kurtzman out of ideas? [img.fark.net image 480x400]


The only show so far that wasn't hurt by the Orci and Kurtzman closure curse was Fringe. A big reason is because of one person: J. H. Wyman.

Orci and Kurtzman was able to establish Fringe as a monster of the week show and a confusing story arc. Then when J. H. took the reigns and complete creative control, he was able to create a very tight story arc with AN ENDING!!!

/Can't wait for Almost Human to come out.
 
2013-10-13 08:50:41 AM
Why don't they just start killing off female members of the team and have them replaced by sultry foreign "liasons".  They could repeat their episodes ad infititum .

Works for NCIS.

See, you just answered a question that plagued me. "Who stopped Fringe from dying that the hands of those two assholes?" I saw the abrupt and complete change in the show, but I had absolutely no inside scoop.
