Hawaii Five-o

The Weekend Australian - Review - - Television -

Sun­day, 10.30pm, Ten How chill­ingly this episode re­flects re­cent events in Cleve­land, where women were ab­ducted, bru­talised and held cap­tive for many years. It has to be a co­in­ci­dence be­cause this aired in the US on May 5 and the women were res­cued on May 6. The point of view is un­usual. A door opens on a woman calmly comb­ing her hair in a bed­room, singing to her­self and oc­ca­sion­ally writ­ing notes in her diary. A small, tear­ful child is thrust into the room. It is not un­til the woman stands up to see who is com­ing that we see she is wear­ing a leg iron. She tells the lit­tle one that ev­ery­thing will be OK and that she knows ex­actly how she feels. Then of course it’s over to the ac­tion men and women of the Hawaii po­lice depart­ment to try to bring the ele­ments of the case to­gether. Things grow more com­pli­cated and more ur­gent for the child when the older ab­ductee is found dead, shot in the back as she ran away. Look out for a great per­for­mance from vin­tage rock racon­teur Henry Rollins as the vil­lain.
