I'd like to give a lei to Hawaii Five-0's casting people. (I hope they're all women.) Awesome surprise to see a bearded Martin Starr* appear in what will hopefully be a recurring role as a stoned hacker Danny bring in as a consultant to the task force. (Starr's IMDB page has no mention of H50 either.) Plus Starr looked credibly glassy-eyed for the role; I wonder how he prepared for it?
Plus Peter Stromare was the bad guy this week. They're getting top quality actors to guest on H50
And if you love Chevy cars prominently product-placed, this is the show for you!
The best stuff on this show is still the humorous alpha male ball busting between Steve and Danny, with Danny actually in the right about Steve's military-derived extremist tactics not lining up with how a cop should behave.
"Book 'em, Danno." "Really? Is that gonna be your thing now?" "You don't like it?" "I don't like it." "I think it's catchy."

@slaverat1 Party Down Season 2 on DVD today. If you hate DVD extras, you'll love this release.
The best parts are almost always when Tom goads Ben into talking nerd stuff. The Game of Thrones rant was hilarious, and Tom was doing some of that stuff earlier in the season when Ben was doing the books for Entertainment 7 Twenty. Love it.
