    So I guess no reunion TV movie?

    Seemed that Five-Zero was setting up a potential reunion movie with how it all ended. The fact that Daniel Dae Kim and Grace Park seemingly made up with the showrunners made this even more likely.

    There was no "Jump the Shark" moment on Five-O, but I understand why Chin's death ("A Death in the Family") was picked. It wasn't because that was a bad episode, but because it was the last episode...

    Just watched this one now. I had only seen it once previously -- close to 30 years ago.

    Kono tried to steal my girlfriend from me

    I can't believe I haven't posted this story yet, but yes, it's exactly as described in the thread title. Zulu, who of course played Kono for the first 4 seasons, tried to steal my girlfriend.

    Script from Bored She Hung Herself

    This script was recently sold on eBay, and somehow made it onto a Five-O Facebook group.

    I liked this episode better than most people did. It might be because I'm a professional gambler myself.

    The early "casino" scene in "Seoul" was laughable. It was clearly on a set in Honolulu,...

    Bugs!

    After watching "The Listener", it reminded me of Five-O's sometimes annoying use of "bugs" as a plot device.

    The problem with the "bugs" shown in Five-O is that they were far too advanced,...
