Let's take another look back at Alex's directorial debut (H50 ep. 8.18) with another collage and a repost of my friend Wendie's Five-0 Redux blog about the episode:
http://www.staradvertiser.com/2018/03/31/features/five-0-redux/oloughlin-duty-five-0-directorial-debut/
I loved this scene with Steve, Frank Bama and "the kids". As a matter of fact, I very much enjoyed all the scenes with ReyRei (Tani Rey and Junior Reigns) in this episode. These two are hilarious and so great together. And in this particular scene, Steve playing the guitar was, of course, the very delicious cherry on top :-)

CBS's latest posts clearly show that they share the fans' love of ReyRei, too!

APRIL 2, 2018:

Happy Easter Monday! It's a public holiday here in Germany which means I don't have to work but, sadly, it also means that there's no H50 on Sat.1 tonight because most TV series take a break on holidays.

Happy Danno Day with a collage of Danno and Brooke in H50 ep. 8.18 - Alex's directorial debut!
We got quite a few cute smiles from Danno in this episode - More coming up later in a collage with Rachel.

H50 Boss Peter celebrating Easter with the main cast of his upcoming reboot of "Magnum P.I.":
https://www.instagram.com/p/BhDVZrNnJnA/
More photos from the current filming of the pilot in Hawaii can be found on his Instagram page - not with the main cast though.
I know that some fans of the old show insist that Magnum must have a moustache but, to be honest, I'm happy that Jay doesn't have one. He looks a lot better - moustaches may have been en vogue back in the 80s but they definitely aren't now - and that's a good thing! By the way, if you haven't seen my little page about this reboot, take a look:
www.alex-the-best.de/magnum/magnum.htm

I'll be back...

CBS has also decided that it's "Happy Danno Day" - Here's a clip with young Danno in H50 ep. 8.18
https://twitter.com/HawaiiFive0CBS/status/980761762680029185

And here's my next collage with Danno in H50 ep. 8.18 when he meets Rachel, for the first time
I know some fans will hate me for this comment because Rachel has made several very wrong decisions regarding Danno - but I still love these two together and I'm convinced that Rachel never stopped loving Danno. But wasn't that one of the reasons why Stan wanted to get divorced?! So I'm not all alone with my opinion :-)

Info for German fans: H50 alumni Julie Benz and Tom Sizemore will be in Germany next weekend!
Both are guest-stars at the "Weekend of Hell" (Comic Con) at the Westfalenhalle in Dortmund on April 7 and 8.
For further info, go to:

Here are some pictures of Tom and Julie - incl. one of Julie and me at last year's Munich Comic Con:

And this H50 gem (also found by Peter on his computer) dates back to before the premiere of the reboot

My next, rather simple collage from H50 ep. 8.18 is also about music - well, indirectly, since Frank brought Steve a guitar...
For the unlikely case that you've missed the Five-0 Redux about this episode, so far, here's another chance to read it:

APRIL 3, 2018:

Monday was World Autism Day and here's a special H50 post about it:
https://twitter.com/HawaiiFive0CBS/status/980929812586876928
This also reminds me of the great H50 episode 6.15 with a young autistic man. Here's a collage from it.

My answer to this is a clear YES - at least as long as Alex still appears in front of the camera on H50, too :-)
I guess I'm just a very spoiled fan after Alex perfectly juggled his roles as actor and director on ep. 8.18.
https://cartermatt.com/300258/hawaii-five-0-season-9-should-alex-oloughlin-direct-again/

Let's continue with the collages celebrating Alex's awesome directorial debut - H50 ep. 8.18:
I thought it was amazing how Alex managed to switch between being an actor and being a director. This scene is one of the many examples in which it must have been really hard to focus on both tasks  and to literally "direct himself" (Especially, if you keep in mind that Alex has repeatedly stated that he hates watching himself!), but I think we all agree that he did a fantastic job - or, strictly speaking, two jobs.

Off to work...

Once again, CBS has chosen the perfect video clip from H50 ep. 8.18 to fit in with the last collage I posted :-)
https://twitter.com/HawaiiFive0CBS/status/981124150960963585

And, my next H50 collage with Jessie fits in well with CBS's "video clip of the day", too...
In this scene McGrover try to find out if Jessie has turned on Five-0.

Fans in Hawaii can take improv comedy classes led by H50's Kimee Balmilero - sounds like a fun class to attend!

APRIL 4, 2018:

Happy Birthday to H50's Momma McGarrett - Christine Lahti!

An important video message by H50's Meaghan Rath for the Ho'ōla NŃ Pua charity that helps sex-trafficked children
Fans certainly remember the episodes in last season about child abuse and exploitation. This storyline also led to Kono's departure to the mainland. Some of the cast members already recorded video messages last season to support the charity that cooperated with H50 in the filming of ep. 7.19 and the grand season finale - Meaghan has now joined them with this video message:
https://vimeo.com/262922468

Happy Hump Day with McGrover in a wild car chase in H50 ep. 8.18 - I love Lou's facial expressions :-)

APRIL 5, 2018:

An entire week of celebrating Alex's directorial debut on H50 with collages from ep. 8.18 is coming to an end...
and the best way to end it, is with Steve! I have one more simple collage I haven't posted yet but I'll just compile a Facebook album with all the collages after work. Just in case that you miraculously missed the great Five-0 Redux blog about the episode, here's one last repost:
http://www.staradvertiser.com/2018/03/31/features/five-0-redux/oloughlin-duty-five-0-directorial-debut/

It's a wrap! The pilot for H50 Boss Peter's upcoming reboot of "Magnum P.I." just finished filming in Hawaii.
I have no idea when it will air but I'm sure it will get picked up for a full season. Here's a photo that Peter has posted - and there are more photos in there from filming the pilot:

APRIL 6, 2018:

Happy H50 & MacGyver Friday with new episodes of both shows on CBS!
The best TV night of the week starts with MacGyver ep. 2.19, followed by H50 ep. 8.19.
Further info about MacGyver Season 2 and ep. 2.19 can be found here:

Off to work...

The German "TV Serienhighlights" magazine has dedicated its cover to H50 and includes 10 pages about the show
While I definitely do not like the critical, negative undertone of the writer with regard to Daniel's and Grace's exit and the current cast, I am happy to see my H50 favorites on the cover of the magazine and a full-page picture of Dennis and Meaghan inside. There are 10 pages with photos, short portraits of the new and promoted cast members, as well as the episode guide for the first eleven episodes of Season 8. The magazine also finally published part 2 of the Season 6 episode guide which it had skipped when the season aired in Germany. Overall, the magazine is worth the money - if you ignore certain negative, unfair comments on page 22. The current April/May issue also includes mini-articles about Christine Ko, Daniel and Grace, as well as several pages about other good CBS shows, such as "NCIS: L. A.".

Hmmm, I want to see much more of Duke than of Jerry in H50 ep. 8.22!
Hopefully, Matt is wrong about ep. 8.22 being a big Jorge Garcia episode. I thought it was going to be a Duke-centric episode.

APRIL 7, 2018: Happy Weekend :-)

Happy H50 Night to the German fans with H50 ep. 1.10 on Kabel Eins at 9:15 p.m.!
After taking a break for Easter last weekend, H50 is back with repeats on Kabel Eins (and new episodes on Monday on Sat.1). Tonight, fans can rewatch one of the goodies from Season 1.
For more info and collages from Season 1, please view:
www.alex-the-best.de/aolhaw1.htm
For info in German about H50 ep. 1.10, go to:
https://www.kabeleins.de/tv/hawaii-five-0/episoden/auf-die-plaetze-fertig-mord

P.S. - They decided to show this episode an hour earlier (which I noticed too late to correct this post), followed by ep. 1.11. They probably noticed that H50 is so much more popular than Rush Hour, so from now on, there will be 2 episodes of H50 each Saturday again, starting at 8:15 p.m.

The promo trailer for H50 ep. 8.20 with Cath & Steve is out - And again McGarrett "didn't do it" :-)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R2M0dLwtVCM

H50 fans in the U.S. can stream this week's new H50 ep. 8.19 on CBS All Access - Catch up or rewatch!

While Billy V is usually a super-nice guy, he played this "pain in the a$$" very convincingly :-) Fans of H50 (incl. myself) love Billy V for his interviews with Alex and the other cast members.

APRIL 9; 2018:

Happy H50 Monday to the German fans with the "new" ep. 8.09 - Another very good one you should not miss!
In this episode, which airs on Sat.1 at 10:15 p.m., Five-0 ends up "trapped" on a ship after being exposed to a deadly virus. Since tonight's not the last episode, it's comforting to know that our favorite team will not die, of course - but they almost do! This episode was filmed almost exclusively out on the ocean for an entire week (and some of it at an indoor pool) during the second half of my Hawaii vacation last September. Any fans who vacationed there while this episode was filmed had zero chance to watch any filming. I was so glad that I had stayed there long enough to see them filming the previous episode 8.06 (which was initially filmed as 8.08).

APRIL 10, 2018:

For all you H50 fans who are anxiously waiting for Season 9 renewal news - Read this to calm down!
Unless the Omaze charity sweepstakes website is looking for big trouble with CBS (which I highly doubt), there HAS to be a season 9 because otherwise they could not write this kind of email to participants in the recent charity sweepstakes in which fans can win a visit to the set of H50 and lunch with the main cast. I just got this email today because I donated 50 dollars in the sweepstakes to support the Children's Hospital Los Angeles.

Happy Tuesday with Steve and these families that he made happy in H50 ep. 8.19 - Such a moving scene!
I'm certainly not alone at calling this my two top-favorite moments on the show: Steve meeting the families of the victims and smiling in his car as he talks to his dad.

Back from work...

All the participants in the sweepstakes just received emails notifying us of the winner (cif. screenshot of part of the email).
PLEASE NOTE: If you are sad and disappointed about not having won in the sweepstakes, you still have a very good reason to celebrate because this winner announcement clearly means that there will be a Season 9 for us to enjoy! And you can be proud to have supported the Children's Hospital Los Angeles with your contribution in the sweepstakes!

I made a few collages for Wendie to post while I'm gone. She even got collages to congratulate H50 and MacGyver if their season renewals are confirmed by CBS this Friday, by chance - You always have to be prepared as a fansite admin :-)
While I'm gone, German fans should not miss the repeats of H50 ep. 1.12 and 1.13 on Kabel Eins this Saturday at 8:15 p.m. And, of course, H50 ep. 8.10 will air on Sat.1 in Germany on Monday at 10:15 p.m. - but I'll be back before it airs and should be able to post a little reminder, in time.
And here's the link to the Five-0 Redux page:

Also look for the Five-0 Redux blog on Saturday:

I'll be back... :-)

An occasional reminder of why Scotty is not on all 25 episodes of H50...:
Obviously, this needs to be reposted regularly to remind fans of Scotty that family is important to him - and his family happens to be living in L.A.! He has a partner and a little daughter there. If you still did not know this - even as a fan of Scotty - please read the article and then you'll, hopefully, stop complaining about the lack of Scotty/Danno in several episodes. Personally, I love Scotty/Danno but I fully understand his reasons for wanting to spend time back home. I'd rather see him in only 20 episodes per season of my favorite show than not at all. And those who complain about his absence should not only respect his decisions and wishes but should also be careful as to not be disrespectful of the other main cast members who do such a fantastic job on the show. Anyone who doesn't agree that Chi is a brilliant actor, too, has not watched him. You don't have to love everyone on the main cast but you should acknowledge the fact that all of them are super-nice and extremely talented people. They deserve to be respected for that and for always giving their best to fill the gap left by Scotty's repeated absence. They do so quite successfully even though they cannot "replace" him, of course:

APRIL 18, 2018:

Thank you to Silke (German Alex O'Loughlin Fan Club) for this lovely birthday card she has made for me :-)
By the way, I wouldn't mind if CBS gave me the perfect birthday gift for a fansite admin - The "official" renewal announcement for a Season 9 of H50. Although I'm quite sure that the renewal will happen, it's not easy to convince and calm down other fans as long as there's no official confirmation from the network.
B-day card with Alex 

Collage from a very funny scene in H50 ep. 8.20 - You just gotta love Lou's facial expressions!
By the way - I do agree with Cath regarding her reason for coming to Five-0. Steve always wants and needs to be informed when someone from outside "his" island is trying to track down terrorists on Hawaii. After all, the Five-0 taskforce was established to chase this kind of high-profile criminals. Usually, Steve would insist on being informed about it. However, that does not mean that Cath couldn't have brought her own colleagues to help her. But, then again, we all know that Steve's usually not too thrilled when people from outside Hawaii investigate on "his territory" without him and his team being involved.

I'll be back later. Although I'm still off work today, it'll be another busy day...

A little reminder of our Donate Life Month campaign by the "Alex O'Loughlin Fans for Organ Donation":
2 birthdays this week are 2 good reasons to celebrate the gift of life in our fundraiser benefitting Taylor's Gift - the charity that was named after Taylor who was born April 19 and gave the gift of life as an organ donor. Since today is also my birthday, it would be great if you would make a donation in our fundraiser as a meaningful gift for Taylor's birthday tomorrow or my birthday today.
Here's all the information you need to participate in the Donate Life Month campaign:

Sorry, no new collages before work. I was a little overwhelmed on Wednesday with the renewal news for my favorite show and, of course, mainly by getting birthday calls and e-mails (incl. one by Dennis Chun) and meeting a friend etc. - Good thing that the birthday dinner isn't until Sunday night, so I was home when the renewal was announced.

Mahalo to my friend Wendie for her birthday wishes - She chose the perfect photo for her post :-)

Happy H50 & MacGyver Friday with new episodes of both shows on CBS!
