Repost: Help needed urgently for the family of H50 sound-mixer Sean Rush who says "Thank You" for donating and sharing!
Sean and his family (incl. 5 children) lost everything due to the volcano on Big Island! Sean and his family moved to Hawaii several years ago and put all their savings into one big dream - an animal farm on Big Island. The family just lost not only this dream but their home and all their belongings in the lava from Kilauea. While they managed to save themselves and their animals, they now have no home and the crew is currently unemployed until filming for H50 starts again, so there's no new money coming in, at the moment. There's also no insurance coverage for the damage. On top of that, Sean's other daughter in L.A. was severely injured in an accident last year and just got major spinal surgery, so Sean's been staying with her and couldn't help his wife and kids in Hawaii. This family has really been hit very hard and appreciates any help they can get.
Anyway, if you can afford to make a donation for Sean and his family, it would be awesome.
Here's a link to the fundraising page with the family's full story - focusing primarily on Sean's wife Samantha and the kids:

Don't miss the new Five-0 Redux blog about H50 Season 8 storylines that "fell through the grid" in previous blogs
Here's where you find it:
P.S.: As you may notice, the content of the blog does not entirely fit in with the collage or vice versa - I guess Wendie changed plans while she was writing. Well, at least the Adam storyline and McDanno's were mentionned.


JUNE 3, 2018: Have a Sunny Sunday!

Collage no. 2 with a look back at open storylines from S8 - and the Five-0 Redux blog about them:
Season 9 will show if Duke will be punished for crossing the line to save his kidnapped granddaughter. We'll also see if McDanno's restaurant will finally open - and if it will be named after their not-so-silent "silent partner" Kamekona. It also remains to be seen if Adam will be accused of killing his sister Noriko who got Jessie killed. The new season should bring  answers and closure to these storylines - and, personally, I'm most interested in finding out what will happen to poor Duke. I also want to see the restaurant get opened but even though Kamekona has a point about his name being well-known on the island, I don't think a restaurant should be named after a silent partner. The name should reflect that the restaurant was  McDanno's idea and that they are the original and main partners in this business. If the restaurant is named after Kamekona, it's not really this buddies' restaurant, any more - but just another addition to Kamekona's big franchise business. As much as I love Kamekona and appreciate his financial help and entrepreneurial advise for desperate McDanno, it just doesn't seem right to name this particular restaurant after him.

Let's take a look back at storylines about organ donation on H50  - and at similar real-life stories!
Over the years, H50 has repeatedly incorporated the topic of organ donation - including, of course, the big storyline of Danno donating part of his liver to Steve. Find out how realistically (or not) the show has dealt with this topic and read some encouraging real-life stories about liver donations and living donor transplantation.


JUNE 4, 2018:

Happy H50 Night to the German fans with repeats of three Season 6 episodes on Sat.1 from 10:15 p.m.!

Off to work - I'll be back with a birthday collage...

What a pleasure to see Alex in the latest CBS WATCH! magazine which was in my mail today - Enjoy the view!
Of course these photos are not new but we (his fans) never get tired of seeing them. If you want to order a subscription for the magazine, please go to:

Thanks to CBS for this Monday Motivation post with Alex as Steve on H50 :-)

Happy Birthday to Egan Inoue - friend and jiu-jitsu trainer of Alex, as well as H50 guest-actor (ep. 2.01 and 4.21)!
The pictures are screencaps of a really sweet interview the boys did with the Honolulu Star Advertiser to promote a women's self-defense class they gave together - with all the proceeds going to the Kapi'olani Medical Center for Women and Children. These two have big hearts! Long-time fans of Alex certainly remember the classes. Several fans (even from as far away as Europe) participated in the self-defense classes:
Here's a look back at the interview: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_jLAK7KVC1Q
Here's a look back at one of the classes: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G7uqHbENzR8
If you are living in or travelling to Hawai'i and want to attend a self-defense class, learn some jiu-jitsu (Alex's favorite sport) or just work out in one of Egan's bootcamps, take a look at the website of Egan's training center:

A new fan-video for the fans of Alex: Enjoy him as Steve in H50 Seasons 1 to 8 - Thanks to "Karo McGarrett"!

Yeah! The Season 8 DVDs of H50 will be released in the U.S. on Sept. 4
I can't wait to see which goodies (Bonus material) David Naylor will put on them for us to enjoy. Personally, I very much hope for a DVD special about Alex's directorial debut (ep. 8.18). David always does such a fantastic job with the DVD bonus material. As you all know, he recently received a Telly Award for his DVD special about the Chun Family Legacy. If you missed Wendie's blog about it, take a look now - she interviewed David for this blog:

Have a Terrific Tuesday with McDanno & Co.! The collage makes you wonder if the boys will ever open their restaurant - and if it will be named McDanno's, after all...
We'll have to wait for Season 9 to find out. Wendie's weekly Five-0 Redux blogs will help you through the long hiatus while you're waiting for the boys to return to our TV screens. Here's the latest blog from Saturday - just in case that you haven't read it yet...:

Off to work...

Happy H50 Late-Night to the U.S. fans with two season 5 episodes on TNT from 2 a.m. on Thursday morning!
This week, sleepless fans can rewatch ep. 5.06 and 5.07 - Please note that the second one is the 100th episode which, to this day, is a top-favorite of mine - Yes, although poor Steve suffered quite badly. But Alex's performance was excellent, and I loved the "what-if" scenarios with Danno acting a bit like Steve. It was just a totally cool episode.
For more info and collages from the two episodes, please view:

Trailer for the summer series "Salvation" with H50's Ian Anthony Dale - Season 2 premieres June 25 at 9 p.m.!

Have a G'Day with Awesome Aussie Alex - May this smile brighten up your day!
As mentionned when I posted the birthday collage for Egan with screencaps from the same Star Advertiser interview, I loved Alex in this video interview. So here's more of him to enjoy for Throwback Thursday :-)

A Duke collage that fits in with the latest Five-0 Redux blog about open storylines from H50 Season 8:
We'll have to wait for Season 9 to find out which consequences Duke will face for knocking down one of his HPD colleagues. Let's hope that his punishment will be moderate since he only tried to save his kidnapped granddaughter, after all.
If you haven't read the latest Five-0 Redux blog about this and other open storyline from Season 8, take a look now:

Off to work...

If you love the H50 crew as much as I do, please help one of them who lost everything due to the volcano eruption!
H50 member Sean Rush and his family had set up an animal farm on Big Island which was entirely destroyed by the lava. The family (incl. 5 children) lost their home and all their belongings on the farm. A fundraiser was set up to help them get back on their feet. If you want to help a member of the H50 'ohana, please donate if you can.
Here's the link to the fundraiser for Sean's family - Please know that Sean is very grateful for the help and has already said Thank You via Facebook:
P.S.: As far as I know, most crew members of H50 live on Oahu which is not affected by the volcano. The fundraiser for Sean's family is the only one I know of - but the Rush family has been hit really hard and needs all the help they can get. Food, clothing, furniture, accommodation etc. for a family of 7 does cost quite a lot - especially in Hawaii.


JUNE 8, 2018:

Happy H50 Friday with a repeat of ep. 8.04 on CBS at 9 p.m. ET - Tune in and make the best of the long hiatus!
While we don't get new episodes until September, we can still enjoy H50 since it's always worth rewatching - and this was a great episode in which the writers perfectly blended humorful and very serious moments.
For more info and collages from the episode, please view my Season 8 page:

Off to work...

H50 says Aloha or Welcome to the new "Magnum P.I." in Hawaii!

JUNE 9, 2018: Happy Weekend :-)

Happy H50 Night to the German fans with two Season 2 episodes on Kabel Eins from 8:15 p.m.!
Fans in Germany can rewatch ep. 2.04 and 2.05 tonight. Episode 2.05 had some very emotional moments in it regarding Kono. I almost cried when Steve and his team had to arrest her - and I cheered in the final moments. For more info view my Season 2 page:
For info in German, go to:

Don't miss today's new Five-0 Redux blog about H50 Season 8 guest stars!
Please note that there will be a separate blog soon about best recurring (!) guest-stars incl. fan-favorites like Chris Vance, Willie Garson and, of course, Eddie. Today's blog is about guest stars who've appeared on the show just once.
Here's the blog:


JUNE 10, 2018: Have a Sunny Sunday!

Today's collage is dedicated to some real-life heroes who guest-starred in Season 8 of H50:
Read what Wendie wrote about these veterans and other guest-stars in her latest Five-0 Redux blog:


Take a look at the new BBC documentary "Heart transplant: A chance to live" and follow the journey of patients on the waiting list for a transplant - A video recommendation by our "Alex O'Loughlin Fans for Organ Donation" group:
The video includes images of surgeries from the OR which you may want to skip or fast forward (I did, to be honest). However, the documentary is definitely worth watching, as it gives a real-life impression of what it's like to be on the waiting list for a transplant. The documentary also shows that things don't always work out successfully - not all the recipients survive but those who do survive do appreciate their second chance at life. I particularly love 9-year-old Max, a heart transplant recipient who, at the end of the video, points out how grateful he is for his donated heart - which he greets every morning to make it feel welcome. If you don't want to watch the full, long documentary, please take the time to watch the little clip which is only about Max - You'll love this boy!

Happy H50 Late-Night again for the TNT viewers with 2 repeats on Friday morning from 3 a.m.!
Sleepless fans in the U.S. can enjoy ep. 5.11 an 5.12 on TNT. I always wonder if there are actually fans watching this late at night since I would assume that anyone who loves this show has all the seasons on DVD to enjoy at a better time of the day. But just in case that any of you poor fans are wide awake in the middle of the night, you should know that H50 is there for your entertainment - Just tune in to TNT at 3 a.m. :-)
For more info and collages, please view my page about Season 5:

Almost missed this but it's never too late to celebrate with H50's awesome Meaghan Rath even after Wednesday :-)

Off to work - followed by a little "summer party" which, hopefully, won't be ruined by thunderstorms...

For Throwback Thursday, take a look back at an interview with Alex about "Three Rivers" and organ donation
In this old interview from October 2009, Alex talks about the medical show "Three Rivers" in which he played a transplant surgeon. He also explains what made this show so special and why he became an ambassador for organ donation.
P.S.: Please note that the show is available on DVD and Blu-ray in U.S. format (NTSC). For iinformation about the show, as well as more interviews with Alex about "Three Rivers" and organ donation, please view this page:

For Selfie Day, H50's Julie Benz (Abby Dunn) winked at the camera :-)
This woman really has no reason, at all, to worry about her looks. It might not be the perfect wink but she always looks great.

A photo by H50 boss Peter to spread the great news that H50 starts filming Season 9 very soon!
Of course, there will be a traditional blessing, like every year on the first day of filming. Usually, the team starts shooting  early in July - my guess is that the blessing will be towards the end of the first week of July or so. I really have no idea though :)

Off to work...
