There is a poll on my blog about the ratings. You are welcome to vote. let's see what people think.

Maybe it would be better to move H5O to Tuesday night where we have NCIS & NCIS LA as lead in. On Monday's It's a comedy night on CBS, and H50 is an Drama/action show.

One additional comment about ratings. H50 isn't getting much help from the CBS comedies that precede it. They are being beaten significantly by the two "talent" shows The Voice(NBC) and Dancing With the Stars(ABC) which run from 8-10 PM.

Enjoyable episode. One question - the team's star player is killed in the morning and that afternoon they play a game as if nothing happened? at least guys black arm bands?. Here are the ratings so far:
Revolution Castle H50
9/25 9.2 10.4 8.1
10/2 8.3 10.3 8.0
10/9 8.0 10.6 8.4
10/16 8.6 10.9 8.7

Numbers are millions of viewers. Revolution leads in the 18-49 age group. Castle has the most viewers but is last in the 18-49.

Doris is not like a normal mom just dropping in on her son. Firstly she abandoned Steve and pretended to be dead for 20 years. She keeps lying to him and told him she was leaving the Island but suddenly turns up making breakfast. Doesn't Steve want any answers or is "I did it to protect you" sufficient for him. Suddenly she wants to settle down but what happened to all the "danger". How is she protecting Steve by inviting danger to his home. She's putting Steve and especially Cath in danger - wouldn't Steve have a problem with that. What happened to Cath's Navy career. Where is she getting all this time to keep doing favours. So yeah the characterization is still a huge problem for me and I'll continue to express my issues with it. But it was nice to see a mix up in the pairings this week and I really hope the writers continue to do this. The show needs to keep mixing things up otherwise it becomes repetitive and less interesting.

@Emmydee23 - According to my poll 71% of the voters (252 people) think Wo Fat is Doris's son.

my theory: I'm thinkin Wo Fat and Steve are half brothers...and he didnt kill her bc he cant shoot his mom.....just a thought

I agree, Lynette! A larger word count would be nice. I had to re type and I think my original comments that disappeared into Internet limbo was more eloquent than the final posting. Hehehe.

(cont.) his mom's room.

Would be nice if TVFanatic would give us a slightly larger word count to work with! H5-0 fans are a wordy group! LOL!

Thanks, Carissa, for your entertaining review! I enjoyed this episode, but then, I'm a pretty hardcore fan and as such, a rather boring commenter, because I have a hard time seeing anything wrong with an episode! This week, Christine Lahti wins kudos from me for portraying Doris as a woman attempting to fall back into the role of mother that she abandoned 20 years before. Talking to Steve as if he's a 15 year old boy again, pretending that nothing has changed in their relationship. It's not going to work, of course, Steve isn't 15 and he's had enough experiences to know better than to blindly trust someone who faked her death 20 years ago, abandoned her family and then waltzes back into the home cooking breakfast! Lots of other things I liked this week, too! Danny/Kono at the fortuneteller's and their little cargument afterwards! A "cowed" Chin telling Steve his mother is very convincing! All good. Oh, good procedural, too! Didn't figure out the killer until I saw him walk out of his mom's hospital room!
