not even close to the original
30 July 2013 | by bobbynearSee all my reviews

the lesson to be learned is obvious. once you trap magic in a bottle don't let it get away and most of all don't try to recreate it. this episode does not even come close to the original filer story. virtually no humor at all, a small bit of original music but most of all too much of a story involving drug money. The original worked because it was more about the Filer character and less about the money. He delighted in taunting McGarret and we delighted in watching it. The original is an all time TV classic. No story and certainly not this one will ever come close. Nice try but no cigar. Stick with the original. You will never ever forget it.
