In Hawaiian, “Nalowale” means lost, gone, forgotten, vanished, missing. And for most of us, that is an appropriate title for Saturday’s rebroadcast about the missing daughters of a U.S. Ambassador, but it’s also how we are feeling after last Monday’s season finale. Lost, like sometime is missing, as if something is gone from our lives.
I know, a little deep, but as you all know, I’m not one to stick with simplicity. But we have several great rebroadcasts to watch for the next few months, as well as weekly postings of the Five-0 Redux.
That’s right, before you all think I will vanish until Season 2 starts, rest assured I’ll keep blogging away as long as you all will continue to read and comment. And thank you to those of you who take the time to leave your ideas and theories about the show, the characters, and your own musing about how our Five-0 Team will fare in the end. Thank you also for the kind words about my writing and my mental state and how delicious you think the Kool-Aid is over in my world. Let me just tell you, it’s amazing.
So because of all of you, I’ll continue with my Redux posts. Put on some Barry White, grab a couple of Longboards, heat up your hibachis, and charge up the Miss Pac Man, because we’re in for a summer of fun and sun — and sightseeing.
I’ll be visiting a few spots on the island that McG and the team have visited and give you an inside look at where they have been shooting from an island girl’s perspective. I’m still working out the details, but I’m hoping to not only show you places the “Five-0” team has investigated, solved cases, lived, and worked, but also hope to give you a quick glance into the fascinating history and culture of Hawai‘i. I’ll also be writing about my own experience in the television and film industry and hopefully talking to some folks who have been on set with the “Five-0” crew.
If you are reading this and would like to join in with my own Redux investigations, please contact me at Five0Redux@gmail.com or via the links below and we’ll make some Five-0 Redux magic.
But don’t worry folks, everything will come from what we have seen and what we love about “Hawaii Five-0” so we won’t stray from thinking about our team. Because there will be little we want to forget about our fearless four.
No matter how lost they seem to be right now, we know that they will not be forgotten.
