"Five-O" airing episode about Japanese interments in World War II

"Five-O" airing episode about Japanese interments in World War II By RICH HELDENFELS Published: December 3, 2013 A note from series co-star Daniel Dae Kim arrived today. The textt: Dear Television Reporter: Networks often talk about "very special episodes," but episode 410 of HAWAII FIVE-0 is deserving of that description. Rarely do police dramas delve into subjects like the internment of Japanese-Americans during World War II, but this small and shameful chapter in our history is one that reminds us all of a valuable lesson: that we can never measure an American's patriotism solely by their appearance or ancestry. I've never been prouder of HAWAII FIVE-0, and I applaud our producers for tackling a topic that goes beyond a crime of the week. It is my sincere hope that you find this episode, highlighted by some remarkable performances, as special as we do. The episode, titled Ho'onani Makuakane (Honor Thy Father), airs Friday, December 13 at 9:00pm-10:00pm ET/PT on CBS. It was filmed on location at the historic battleship Missouri Memorial and outside the USS Arizona Memorial.
