I loved every second of this episode!
Alex once again just gets hotter and hotter, if that is possible.
There was lots of funny dialogue this week.

So if the writers want the shows ratings to improve they need to ask themselves why so many have stopped watching and take on board that the awful characterization lately could be a huge factor. Danny gets more irriting and useless each week, Steve regresses to a child around Danny and acts like a jerk around Cath, not good character qualities. Chin is awesome but mostley ignored. Kono has no storyline at all except for the brief appearance of Adam out of the blue and then its totally forgotten about. Grace seems desparate for some development for Kono and some continuity but writers don't seem interested. They're more intersted in turning their leads into bickering annoying kids to the detriment of all the characters and the success of the show.

Cath bows down to Steve's every whim, how does that make her a strong character. She was fine before her character changed so much this season because she's not allowed to be a threat to the McDanno. McDanno fans judge each episode on the McDanno quota and can't stand anyone coming between them, thus all the objections to Cath being on the show. She's accused of having no purpose - but what purpose has Danny, except to whine and be one half of the bromance. Lori was hated, Joe was hated and also Doris. In fact anyone who takes time away from Steve/Danny is not welcomed onto the show.
From the huge decline in ratings the bromance is not what attracts many of the audience to the show but as usual anyone who complains about it gets the usual response to stop watching. I think enough have already done that and probably more will leave once Revolution comes back.

It's a TV show,the only one I watch. It entertains me, if it didn't I would stop watching. It's not one size fits all and I don't think any show is, I maybe wrong. Are some of the story lines over the to? Yes. Are there some characters I don't like? Yes. Does it entertain me in spite of that? Yes.
What is most amazing to me is people who have absolutly nothing good to say about the show are, apparently, still watching.

If two guys are partners, working together every day, having each other's backs and sharing lots of time in a car (read: lots of occasions to talk), then "bromance" is not the word. It's friendship - and the kind that enjoys verbal bouts within the framework of respect and deep loyalty. That's what Steve and Danny have - and there's never a question of who's boss. It's Steve and Danny knows it.
As for Catherine and Steve - these are two grown-ups; each with successful careers and they don't need to fawn over each other nor engage in Love Story gooey sentimentality. Catherine is no push over and Steve is not the "I love you to death" simpering fool.
Just enjoy the show - and hope all the loose strings we have been presented with have some resolution come season's finale, 'cause I still have questions from the first season!

Jodee you could have not said it better regardign ur insight as to how Catherine is being played this season. I agree with you 100%

Giving her field access would have accomplished the purpose but nope they have to give her these super powers/connections. Seriously, Steve is a member of the Governor's task force, is a decorated Navy SEAL and grew up in Hawaii, his Dad was a cop, but he doesn't have any pull? Really lame the way they write Cath - sex, favors and Mary Sue. We're 3/4 through the season and still no purpose in her being a regular. Her character works much better as recurring. Of course, I also don't watch the show for romance. I prefer the team, action, humor and bromance which is what the show started out as and still does best.

Sorry, never know where the cut off is so posts are in reverse order.

The case itself was entertaining enough, convoluted for sure. Great use of Larry Manetti. Kid DeMarco was fiesty and nice little tie in to New Jersey for Danny. Pat Monahan did a credible turn as the baddie of the week.

Aww, Danny made the sacrifice for Steve and then Steve did the same for Danny tossing the long ball. Nice catch by Danno and celebration after. Those two were like excited kids at Christmas. A joy to watch. Can never have too much bromance or Steve/Danny scenes. They make the show.

Cath was once again over the top. Lenkov can never have her as just a normal person. Nope she has to be not only on the field but in the middle of the team bench during the game. Then he had to go a step farther and have her keep the stadium open so Steve and Danny could play catch plus have her give Danny the autographed ball (nice gesture) plus have her be friends with Peyton Manning after a post game chat. Sorry, but that once again makes her a Mary Sue. Giving her field access would have accomplished the purpose but nope they have to give her these super powers/connections. Seriously, Steve is a member of the Governor's task force, is a decorated Navy SEAL and grew up in Hawaii, his Dad was a cop, but he doesn't have any pull? Really lame the way they write Cath - sex, favors and Mary Sue. We're 3/4 through the season and still no purpose in her being a regular.

Agree with the review. 317 was a fun, entertaining episode full of McDanno goodness! Steve/Danny scenes (however you want to interpret them) were a great throwback to season 1, showing how that relationship defines and carries the show. Alex and Scott are the anchors and along with Daniel and Grace make a fantastic cast and show. Loved the conversation about fantasy football, perfect analogy too with the Dungeons and Dragons for sports geeks. Fantasy football is serious business! Fun scene with Kono and the security guard too. Danny handing off the phone to Kono, humorous but also good continuity going back to season 1 with the sexting. Danny and technology don't get along.
