Jan. 20, CBS Local writes, "Hawaii Five-O episode, “Olelo Ho’opa’I Make” (Hawaiian for “death sentence”), sees Chin (played by Daniel Dae Kim), kidnapped and dropped in the middle of Halawa Prison dressed as an inmate; he fights for his life to escape when other prisoners recognize him as “Five-0” (a policeman)."
The episode of the wildly popular, CBS crime drama, filmed in Honolulu, featuring the seven unreleased Hendrix songs, is critically acclaimed as the best episode of season three. "The use of the Hendrix music was the perfect soundtrack for everything that happened, too. The music added some extra grittiness that went nicely with a story that included a prison riot, a helicopter rescue and other general kick-ass scenes."
The Hawaii Five-0 episode premiered after the NFL AFC Championship game. The Hendrix songs featured in the episode are ”Bleeding Heart,” “Mojo Man,” “Hey Gypsy Boy,” “Inside Out,” “Crash Landing,” “Hear My Train A Comin’” and “Somewhere.”
