I met Scott Caan after a concert in about 1993...he was part of a rap duo called the Whooliganz.....
What????? He was a rapper?
I just finished reading the Yunte Huang book on Charlie Chan; The Untold Story of the Honorable Detective and His Rendezvous with American History. Apparently when Leonard Freeman was working on the scripts for the original Hawaii Five-0 series who used to eat at a restaurant called Wo Fat on Hotel Street in Honolulu, thus the name of McGarrett's nemesis.
He sure was...he's one of these two skinny kids in this video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gRwO5ghkCsQ
Oh geez, can't act, can't sing. bahahahhahahaa sure can't rap. bahahahhahaha
Wo Fat came back last night.
Anyone have any ideas on what Wo Fat means when he tells McGarrett that he doesn't doesn't want to know about his father?
The inspiration behind the name:
I go pretty often to a nice Hong Kong bakery right next door for my curry puffs and my chicken pies... mmmm, might have to go back soon...
What corner is that?
Corner of Hotel and Mauna Kea I believe. Its one of the most well known buildings in Chinatown, in part because it was one of the first large buildings built after the 1899 Chinatown Fire (about 1900 I think).
Is it still there? Hotel St. was shut off and just used for buses about 20 years ago?
Yap its still there. The resturant in question closed a number of years ago, but the sign and building are there. Its mostly a Chinatown market (ya know the kind of place you can find anything from mangos to whole pig's heads at) now.
I didn't know there were caveman drawings in Hawaii???? I hope the show doesn't start getting too bizarre. But, the Puff Daddy is on next week.
One thing that the original show had was local actors. This show lacks that. I think there's a little too many mainland actors on this version. It just doesn't seem too authentic.
I've seen petroglyphs on the Big Island, they're real enough. What I haven't seen on the show yet is rain, and you know those mountains on Oahu don't get that vibrant emerald green without a lot of rain
The show is fairly silly, but I watch it for the scenery.
Yeah, Grace Park is some mighty fine scenery, though she's been dressing sloppily lately.
So now the plot centers around Wo Fat, but he has made no appearance in any episode lately????
Interesting finale; the Governor is a crook, Wo Fat sets up McGarrett then kills the Governor, looks like it could be an interesting new season.
He's Wo Skinny now, of course
