I would have thought it would have been cool if Rachels husband would have turned out to be the clean up person. Or someone was actually trying to kill him.

I don't get how you don't expect much. This is one of if not the best new show on tv. It's amazing! I think the had a great storyline this week. Did I call that the guys getting out of the cop cars were bad guys yes, but you know in the beginning of the show something bad always happens to get the story line going.
I liked how the separated everyone. It showed that they can carry on their own. I hope Danno and Rachel get back together. His story line wasn't the point of the new hubby is a bad guy but to show just how much he will protect Rachel and their daughter. I loved the phone call. I like how Steve knows that he has a face and Danno has a tone and he could recognize that.
Steve wasn't wearing eye paint to look hard core. He wore it to blend into the jungle. He was trained in the military/navy and they know that you are to blend in. DUH

Agree with the reviewer that this epi was disappointing. I have zero interest in Danny and Rachel and the whole subplot did seem completely contrived and utterly boring. Is this a crime/action drama or The Good Wife? They also dropped the ball in the jungle. Totally cool idea, totally bungled execution. SteveO did not need the face paint to be intimidating and I would have liked to see more action from him. McLaughlin has the action hero chops, let's see some real jungle ball!

I thought this episode was wonderful!!! I disagree with all the critisism...its all bull!!! All their show I look forward to every week. It was fast paced and still had humour as always!! You rock HAWAII FIVE O guys ... you always have my vote!! 100% :)

I only watch for Scott's scenes. I love his character and his comedic timing.

I disagree wholeheartedly with the reviewer. I love this show. The characters continue to grow and come into their own on the team, and Dan is learning to move on. I love the way the locale was switched up this time. It wasn't in the city or on the beach. It was in the jungle - another integral and beautiful part of Hawaii. The humor is great and a wonderful asset to this show, allowing the more human side of law enforcement to emerge. And the action of this show was first rate. I suggest the reviewer take another look at the entertainment value of this wonderful show, and say "Aloha" to her lower expectations.

All of these characters need a little more fleshing out and it seems to be going well. . But Steve on the cell phone when he needs to be quiet was laughable!

Unlike the others I have to agree. My biggest problem though was the swiftness with which Kono arrived to 'kick ass'. Wasn't she at their headquarters? How did she arrive sooner than McGarrett and Chin, who were in the same building ?
And I actually laughed when I saw McGarrett with the eye paint. What, does he carry the stuff with him? He's trying to be stealthy but doesn't turn his phone off, then answers it while he's trying to haul this huge log up into a tree? The trap was lame, too. What, he couldn't take this one guy out?
It was great to see Chin getting to interact emotionally.
The side story with Danno looked like it might get interesting, and would have made a good on-going side story arc, but then they wrapped it up in ten seconds with an episode that would have had Danny up on charges of assault and police brutality.
I love the show, but this was definitely not up to their usual standards.

Good shows have off nights, although this was not one of them for Five-O. I love these characters, jungle scene not my favorite ever, but I was there with them on this. Love Danno! He is a mighty man in all ways in my book. Seeing him acting like a real man inside and out last night was good for the show.

Just hearing the music for this show makes me smile. I am addicted...but what a nice way to go! ;)

Well you obviously did not get the point. It produced a side of command and control that they each can operate independently but at the same time as a unit. It gave us some good emoting time, especially for Williams. It opens the door for Williams to move on. Lots of doors. It showed another side to Chin, stronger, more in control, more confident team member. It gave Kono a change to show her kick a** ability and maturation into the job. It's an hour, dude. They had a few hours to get the witness back; not a week.
