This is another very easy one. While I'm a fan of "Love Thy Neighbor" (and I enjoy David Huddleston in everything - especially as Grandpa Arnold on THE WONDER YEARS) there's no question that "I'll Kill 'Em Again" is the superior episode. Not only is it the best from season 7 but it's quite possibly in my TOP 5 FIVE-O overall. It's just a stellar episode through and through, and Eddie Josephs is without a doubt the creepiest FIVE-O psycho of them all! MMMMISTER MMMMMcGARRETT! Every time I watch it I'm amazed that Danny Goldman didn't go on to bigger things after this. Looking at his IMDB credits he didn't do all that much before or after, and whatever he did mostly was just bit parts here and there. Nothing of real note or substance. No doubt his FIVE-O role was his most memorable piece of acting, and the most substantive. The guy who played Charles Aarons the computer killer, Jeff David, also has very little on his IMDB. Even less than Goldman. Yet they both played pretty iconic villains on the show, especially Goldman. Excellent score by Harry Geller too!

So season 7 takes the 6-5 lead. Yay! :D

Another tough decision but I'll Kill'Em Again earns the victory. Eddie Josephs is one of the best psychological villains in the 12 seasons. He's a paranoid schizophrenic but an organized offender. He gives McG & HFO team plenty to investigate and a worthy adversary. I like when he pronounces MISTER McGarrett and MISTER Beecham. His undoing was killing his employer Mr. Beecham the book store owner. That was the important link to Josephs.
I think Kill Thy Neighbor is a solid episode. Ben Tanaka was brilliantly framed and thankfully McG could see through it. Rhoads proved to be a worthy and creative adversary for McG. He taped Mrs. Wingfield in the ransom proof of life and used a voice scrambler to disguise his voice. He also outfoxed Chin & several undercover guys at the bus terminal. Locker #186 had a device inside but Rhoads went through the basement as a utility type worker. He tore out the false bottom taking the several hundred thousand ransom in the briefcase. It was a very good ending with Mrs. Wingfield unharmed although Rhoads was shot and killed by Molony. I think Molony would have raped and killed Wingfield if it wasn't for Rhoads. Julie played a key role as Tanaka's girlfriend and Rhoads daughter. She called HFO about her father's involvement in the kidnapping.
It's now 5-5-1 after 11 Season 7 vs. Season 8 battles. Season 7 seems to be playing catch-up since Battle #1. I wonder if Season 7 has enough energy and power to win Battle #12. The final one. JC

Today's 11th Season 7 vs. Season 8 battle is a good matchup. Season 7-I'll Kill'Em Again vs. Season 8. Love Thy Neighbor--Take His Wife.
I'll Kill'Em Again will be remembered for Danny Goldman's chilling and outstanding performance as psycho killer Eddie Josephs. Eddie is a loner type working at Beecham's book store. He has collected articles detailing some of HFO's famous cases. Eddie begins to re-create these crimes killing a young woman in her apartment. Eddie later murders a drunkard placing a silver coin on the man's face. McG and HFO team investigate and remember a series of articles written on some of their most interesting cases. There are several articles and McG and HFO team must figure out who will be the next target. Eddie strikes again shooting a police officer who stops him riding through town. Later, Eddie watches the man die in the hospital. This scene mirrors the resuscitation efforts in Pig In A Blanket. Does McG & HFO team stop Eddie in time before he completes the list of victims?
Love Thy Neighbor Take His Wife focuses on Ben Tanaka a leading Hawaiian ecologist who is tired of the precious Hawaiian land being raped in the name of progress. Tanaka and his Earth People United has gained a grassroots voice trying to stop more high rise buildings and other projects. While practicing a speech, Tanaka is kidnapped and forced to drive his Volkswagen van to Del Wingfield's. The two criminals
(Kekoa & Molony)then kidnap Mrs. Wingfield and take her to a hidden location. Tanaka is drugged and placed back at his house. It's a perfect frame since Del Wingfield's security camera picks up Tanaka driving his fan to the kidnapping area. Vincent Rhoads Del's neighbor is the mastermind behind the abduction and the later ransom. Is Tanaka guilty of this crime? Will McG & HFO team find Lisa Wingfield in time? End of Part I. JC

"Where's the music from Hookman?"

Ringfire, I checked the release date of the LP - it was 1969, so the "Hookman" episode had not yet been made. Yes, I do have the soundtrack on LP that I bought back in the day and I do have a turntable. I believe that it is now available on CD.

Honu, that's what I'm saying. Where's the music from "Hookman"? Where's Ray's score from "Ten Thousand Diamonds"? Where's Shores' music from "Forty Feet High" and "And a Time to Die"? Where's Bruce Broughton? It's an incomplete sountrack. Sure, there are some cool pieces of music from the pilot (some of which aren't even on the soundtrack) but really it was just a quick release to sell the rest of the series. That'd be my guess anyway. As I said I do have all those tracks so I don't feel the need to purchase it. When they released the 24 soundtrack (my other favorite show) they first released the first disc which covered seasons 1, 2, 3 and then the second disc which covered seasons 4 and 5. Unfortunately they never released music from 6, 7, and 8. But at least I got "something" there. Not so with FIVE-O.

Am I correct in assuming that these are LP's that are being sold? If so then I would need a record player to play it. So that's even more reason for me not to purchase it.

Thanks Stephen Z. on your Don B. Ray music citing. I'll continue looking through Gilligan's Island - 3rd Season, but maybe my recollection is off.

Ringfire, I understand your comment about the soundtrack, I really do. But the original LP is really fine music and I'm happy that I have it in my collection. Way back when I purchased it, I was a little disappointed that it didn't have some of the other wonderful music tracks, like from Hookman. But it's a piece of Five-O history, none the less. I'm delighted that I can listen to other tracks on websites like this one! Thanks, Mr. Mike!

Until they release an expanded FIVE-O soundtrack (the way they did with M:I) I'm not interested in purchasing what is essentially a couple of tracks from the pilot episode (and some aren't even used in the pilot).

I don't count this as a proper FIVE-O soundtrack. Besides, I already have those tracks on my laptop. Don't remember where I got them from. Maybe from this site.
