Sorry I'm so late in joining, but my internet connection had been pau since early Friday.

You'e made vey good points, Honu and H50, and there's nothing for me to add except ont thing that isn't really connected with the epiosde.

I never understood why the person responsible for selecting the cast" promoted" an actor from "bad guy" to "member of Hawai'is elite police unit".

Hawaii is a small state. I think in the case of Al Harrington, he was a well known entertainer who had acting ability, so H5O took advantage of that when they needed someone to play a guest role. And guest roles on H5O are usually bad guys! When Zulu was fired, they needed a fourth man on the team, so I imagine that Al was a logical choice. The same happened with Moe Keale - he had many "bad guy" roles before he joined the Five-O team in season 12.

This may be my favorite “Bad Ben” episode. Al Harrington is very physical in his role as Noonan – he does a lot of running, climbing and jumping, not to mention driving the armored car in reverse to load it into the shipping container.

One of the reasons I like this episode is that I think the crime was very well thought out and planned. It presented Five-O with a real challenge. On watching this last night, my husband and I agreed that their downfall was killing th…

I noticed two omissions:

-- The thieves did not put a padlock on the intermodal container before shipping. Who knows? Maybe thieves might have stolen from thieves. After all, it would be all over the news that an armored car was carrying six million dollars when it was stolen.

-- The thieves did not replace the Hawaii license plates on the armored car with California ones while preparing to drive it on California streets. Wouldn't Hawaii plates on a commercial vehicle stand out like a sore thumb???

Very good points, H5O. I hadn't thought about the license plate. It would have stuck out in Oakland! Noonan and company were in such a hurry to load the armored car into the container, cover the tire tracks and get the container to the docks. Guess they forgot that one detail, LOL!
