Many thanks to Mr. Mike for the reminder, I've had a lot going on today.

Tonight, CBS aired "Killer Bee" 50 years ago.

The premise is pretty good with a Vietnam veteran (David Arkin) trying to cover up his crime of killing everyone in his unit. He does this by trying to drive the lone survivor (Jeff Pomerantz) insane through the use of drugs, kidnapping two kids and stabbing himself making it look like the survivor did it!

Mr. Mike has a great review here:

There are a few takeaways including the mother (Doreen Lang) of the survivor who is a total "B" by herself! She's so selfish ... dysfunctional is an understatement. Another takeaway is the medical/psychological mumbo jumbo that I do agree with Mr. Mike takes up a bit too much time. If McGarrett was the one receiving the information it would have been, "English, doc" and the end of it. They would have been left to fill the episode with something else. I do like the end where Danno tells McGarrett, "The bee's a rare psychological term, Steve, which takes a lot of studying to understand." I found that particular exchange funny.

It takes the team awhile to put the pieces together with the veteran trying to throw them off the track by lying that he met the survivor at the VA hospital but really knew him at the unit. At the final confrontation, we see McGarrett in an Army uniform because the veteran is the one really going insane because he's carried the guilt for killing the platoon for too long.

War is hell and this episode does a pretty decent job of showing that. Happy 50th!
