    Sadly, "Dealer's Choice" is the last appearance of Amanda McBroom as Officer Sandi Wells. I like to think she was transferred to the vice squad of the HPD.

    I have a friend who strongly resembles her. I tagged her in a photo on Facebook and asked her did she have famous kinfolks that acted. Said friend is not single, sadly! :lol:

    Like Diana Muldaur, Amanda McBroom ventured where no man has gone before in Season 2 of STAR TREK:TNG, “The Measure of a Man”, as the Judge Advocate and former flame of Picard.

    Definitely the best episode of season two, IMO, and one of the best of the series. This episode shows how valuable good moral argument is, not only for the show, but for the writer. She eventually got elevated to story manager on the shoulders of her moral argument in this episode. And it was her desk that my first spec TNG script landed on. :) Needless to say, I love MEASURE OF A MAN for many reasons. I still have the letter she wrote me. :)

    Now back to Five-0. :)

    917 “A Capitol Crime”

    Boy I am right in a string of really good season nine episodes. If I’m not mistaken, this is the first Hawaii Five-0 episode with a delineated “A” and “B” story. I really like how they joined at the end. Great moral argument, great tension, and a nice resolution. I wish they would do more multi-stories in the same episode. It wasn’t common in the late 70s, but I wouldn’t dream of approaching a 39-minute drama today without an “A,” “B,” “C,” “D,” and maybe an “E” story. I don’t know if more plot strands within an episode is a better thing or not. Sometimes I think it simply means that all the stories get the short shrift.

    But this episode certainly didn’t suffer from it. Very nice indeed. And a glimpse of the shape of things to come...

    Other than watching the credits and getting bored in the first 5 minutes as a child, this is the first episode of Hawaii Five 0 I ever watched. I was instantly a fan. Unfortunately I saw it as a re-run in syndication in the 80's while on vacation in Florida. No one in my home market ever aired the show. I only had the occasional TBS airings of the two-parters to further my exposure.

    I was impressed by how the show cleverly switched from one form of danger to another near the end. Great direction by Sutton Roley. The hostages really seemed disoriented and scared.

    919 “Blood Money is Hard to Wash”

    This felt like a third season show. Lots of plot points and interesting characters. Also fun to see Aloha Stadium and compare it to what it looks like today.

    921 “Requim for a Saddle Bronc Rider”

    I didn’t care for this episode much, but I loved the scene with Chin and the bus driver. The driver says, "Why don’t you cops take a car?" then states, “You gotta pay.”

    Chin pays. Then asks the bus driver questions. Once Chin gets the info he wants, he asks the driver to stop the bus. “Can’t,” the driver says, “Not till the next stop.”

    “But my car is back there!”

    “Take the bus back.”

    Chin grumbles resignedly and sits down. Hahah.

    922 “See How She Runs”

    922a my dad's radio.JPG

    My dad had a radio exactly like this one. The second I saw it, I got transported back in time more than 40 years. I paused the show, meditated on the image of this radio, and took a sweet, beautiful ride back to my childhood. I'm still feeling the trip in time even as I write these words. It’s one of the biggest reasons I keep watching. This show reconnects me with my childhood and my family in a way that few things can.

    That radio went everywhere with us. Fishing with my dad. Watching his face turn with concern over weather reports. Listening to the Texas Rangers play. Hank Williams twanging it up. Everything covered with sawdust in his workshop. The smell of honey as he tended his bee hives. I tell you, a million dollars couldn't buy the precious memories I just recalled.

    The Country Music Hall of Fame website has uploaded a bunch of pretty much unheard stuff of Hank's on their website. Some of it's pretty terrible quality, but it's Hank, and a lot of it is live on radio.

    923 “Practical Jokes Can Kill You”

    Finally got to see Steve’s new secretary, Malia, in a clear shot that held for a second. IMO she's a definite upgrade from Jenny. :)

    Don't get too attached to office staff at this point of the show.

    I looked on Wikipedia, and she was born as "Lee Jeune Williams" (no joke!) at MCAS Cherry Point, NC. Something makes me think she was named that because MCAS Cherry Point is popularly named "Camp Lejeune."

    Why did you skip episode 20? "To Kill A Mind". It has a favorite character of yours Ormsbee, played by Pat Hingle. I was sure you would cover it.

    That's a good question. It was the episode about the sub. I liked it quite a bit. I think I just missed it. They bumped up my deadline on the special features for a little superhero movie I am doing, and I think I just flubbed it and forgot to post it. But I liked the episode.

    My bad.

    I am writing too much, working too many late hours. That's my story and I'm sticking with it. :)
