A message to the fans:
If you've read my long post from January 27, you know that our "Alex O'Loughlin Fans for Organ Donation" group has made some very disappointing, negative experiences which have made me consider closing down my fansite and Facebook pages.
However, I'm still a fan of Alex and love his work, "Hawaii Five-0" and the cast and crew of the show, so I've decided to keep updating the pages for now - but I'm still torn inside and cannot guarantee that I will continue to update in the future, so enjoy the posts while you can. I will also definitely not update as often as in the past.

Info for new fans: Find out why Alex is an ambassador for organ donation and why our "Alex O'Loughlin Fans for Organ Donation" group helps him raise awareness of organ donation - and has done so for about a decade!

FEBRUARY 3, 2019:

Take a look back at this week's great H50 ep. 9.14 which, once again, made me proud to be a fan of this show!
In the latest episode, the writers were courageous enough to incorporate some very delicate, serious subjects, such as racism and homosexuality. Racism, hatred and discrimination of homosexuals are still quite common in the U.S. and elsewhere, so H50 was kind of brave to shed light on these problems because, as could be expected, there was a certain amount of negative reactions from viewers who may have recognized their own wrong behavioural patterns reflected in the episode's more negative characters (like the racist in the collage). I'm happy that most fans responded very positively though and appreciated that the show dealt with these issues. But not only can the writers be proud of this episode - the cast did a fantastic job, too.
Now read what Wendie thought about the episode. Here's her Five-0 Redux blog about it:

Only a short update today since I'm fighting a flu and wasn't even at work today...

A fun video clip from Magnum P.I. for the Super Bowl weekend - Did I ever mention that I love Pizza Hut pizza?!
Since Magnum P.I. and H50 "share" a bunch of actors or characters, I thought I'd share the clip, too:
https://www.facebook.com/CBSSports/posts/10156460962921773
And if this makes you want to see more of Magnum P.I., make sure to tune in on Monday nights on CBS. The show is taking a break tonight though!

Another look back at the latest H50 ep. 9.14 with one of several collages I created a couple of days ago - More of them are coming up this week...


 

FEBRUARY 5, 2019:

The press releases for H50 ep. 9.16 and 9.17 are out - Both episodes will air on February 22!
Ep. 9.17 was directed by Alex who did a fantastic job with his directorial debut in ep. 8.18, so I'm sure all of us Alex fans can look forward to another awesome episode - even more so, as this episode brings out the emotional side of Junior. Here's an info page combining the press releases for both episodes airing on the same night:

All you fellow Hawai'i lovers among the fans will probably love this documentary about O'ahu - Enjoy!
What I like about this documentary is a certain focus on the natural side of the island and not so much the city of Honolulu. I don't know if the documentary can be viewed outside Germany but it's certainly worth a try. Even though it's in German, I think anyone will enjoy the beautiful views of O'ahu with its lush, green mountains, the gorgeous beaches and ocean.

Hau'oli Lā Hānau or Happy Birthday to Dennis Chun whom Wendie and I are happy to call a friend!
When I read in the press info sheet for the SOTB9 premiere last fall that Dennis' birthday is actually today and not on March 18 (as I had falsely believed for several years since it's the birthday indicated on the IMDB website), I asked Dennis about it when we met. To my surprise, he had never told me the correct date although I had repeatedly congratulated him on the wrong day in March. Well, when I asked him about it, he just smiled and seemed slightly amused by the fact that people had been congratulating him on the wrong day for quite a few years. He said his birthday didn't really matter - and he basically repeated the same thing today when he replied to my birthday email and said that it's much more important to him to bring some entertainment and joy to people through his work than to focus on birthdays. I think this statement reflects his humbleness and makes him even more endearing to us - his fans and friends. Well, I am indeed grateful to CBS for the press info sheet since I can finally congratulate this wonderful, humble man on his actual birthday. Even though his birthday doesn't matter much to Dennis himself, it does matter to me!
I hope he has a terrific birthday today. He's actually at work at the studio right now and most certainly doing a great job to bring us all some entertainment and joy :-).


 

FEBRUARY 6, 2019:

Lucky fans in L.A. can buy tickets for the Paley Fest on March 23 to see Alex live!
Actually, all three of Boss Peter's shows will be represented there: H50, Magnum and MacGyver, so you get to see Alex, Peter and the main casts of Magnum P.I. and MacGyver. Sounds like an event you should not miss if you happen to be in L.A. in March. And all of us who can't be there, can probably look forward to interviews and photos that will be shared online.
Here's an info post with a link to the online ticket shop:

Don't miss the new Five-0 Redux blog this weekend - Wendie talked to H50's Shawn Mokuahi Garnett (Cousin Flippa) for the blog!
Shawn did a great job on last Friday's H50 ep. 9.14. In the new blog we'll find out a bit about what it was like to film the episode.

A special treat from H50 ep. 4.17 - today's repeat on German television :-)


 

FEBRUARY 10, 2019: Have a Sunny Sunday!

The Five-0 Redux blog about H50 actor and musician Shawn Mokuahi Garnett is online and a great read!
It is true - Shawn is loved by many fans not only for bringing some comedy and fun to our favorite show but also for being a great musician. I had the pleasure of repeatedly seeing him perform live on stage - at the Cuckoo Coconut Club in Waikiki, as well as at the SOTB9 premiere where he shared the stage with Cyndi Lauper. I love his beautiful voice. But fans also love him for just being a super-nice, modest, humorful person. When I was at the a.m. club with friends last year, he took time for photos with numerous fans during a short break. Although it's true that we were there at the club because of Shawn, he could've just performed and used his short break for relaxing instead of greeting the fans and taking photos with them. Since my own little group consisted of fans from Europe and Australia who had travelled far to see the beloved cast of our favorite show, we really appreciated though that Shawn took time for us. In the collage, you see some of my personal photos with Shawn. Mahalo to him also on behalf of my fan-friends!
By the way, I must admit that I am actually a bit "jelly" of Shawn for getting two hugs from Alex already :-)
Now read the blog about Shawn to find out what I'm referring to in my last sentence:

This post is for H50 fans who still don't want to believe that Dennis Chun's birthday is in February!
As you all know, I was at the SOTB9 premiere of H50 as a press representative for the German Serienjunkies.de website.
When I got the press info about the cast before the event, I noticed that February 5 was indicated as the birth date for Dennis. Since I had falsely believed for several years that his birthday was in March and had also congratulated him on the wrong date repeatedly (He thanked me politely every single time), I was a bit surprised to read the different birth date in the press info. Contrary to Dennis who doesn't care much about birthdays, I find it important to congratulate people on the correct birth dates. So when I met Dennis in Hawai'i, I simply asked him which date was the correct one and he confirmed that his birthday is February 5, as indicated in the press info from CBS. I'm sharing the part of the press info which includes his birthday at the end.
I would never have congratulated Dennis on my fansite and on Facebook on February 5 (instead of March) if I wasn't sure that this is actually the correct date. It's sad that at least one fan has voiced doubts about this.

Take a look back at the start of H50's Season 9 on the beach in Waikiki...
This week's premiere of Season 9 on German television brought back nice memories from the SOTB9 premiere I attended in Hawaii in September. Even though it's not Throwback Thursday yet, I thought you might enjoy a look back at all the videos and photos which I compiled on this page:
