Mr. Mike nailed it-schizophrenic-perfect word. 10 different storylines going on at once here. Cath's old hookup & Fong's wasn't needed, but it was a finale so someone must/might die. Hope he pulls thru. Tired of Adam's angst, "Call me pal when you clean up your life, even if you are really sexy" is what Kono shoulda said & stayed. Last season Steve saved Wo Fat from some baddies when it would have been WAY easier to let them kill him, so I bet he saves his bro(& no doubt they are)again. My ending-Steve goes to visit prison, but Wo Fat has escaped-last shot we see Wo on the slow boat to Shanghai with Mama & Adam. All in all though, Season 3 WAY better than S2.
hopeful for a storybook ending here.
Wow, good episode and really good, interesting comments this week. Even with a tough subject, the gang pulled it off without being totally depressing. Scott Caan did a GREAT job showing Danno's frustration, fear and rage, without saying a word. Nice to see so much of Kono, she lights up the screen. And I agree with @jschoi that Chin didn't believe her for a minute.
Nice to read that the motorcycle guy is who he really is, that was a nice touch. Just enough Catherine and loved when they were teasing Steve about his haircut. Anyone else notice how dark it is though? Last year he was going a bit grey on the sides and now it's Grecian Formular-ed away lol.
@Walter, thanks as always for posting the ratings, I look for that every week.
So we should be seeing Wo Fat and Mama McG taking off soon. I say together. I think she will "spring him" from the hospital, she's a wily one and he is, after all, her other son-maybe ;o) Interested to see how the Kono/Adam deal works out, but am not too hopeful for a storybook ending there. See ya's next week peeps!!
I liked it - different take on the crime, funny to see the "outsider" view of the team. Max cracked me up being Mr. Superfan, he's really grown on me. Steve looked like he'd never seen a TV reporter before and the whole team laughing about the TV crew signing the "safety waiver" was all good.
And Wo Fat got really injured. I figured he'd be running thru the jungle with a broken nail or something, that's the way chopper crashes on this show usually work. Interested to see how he gets out of this mess(and he does look a mess).
@Mike - I don't see them killing off Wo Fat or Danno. Then who would Steve have as Arch Enemy and Best Pal? Unless of course, someone's contract is up & they want way more $$.
How many more epi's till summer break?
H50 wasn't shown here in Boston last nite, the Marathon horror story rightly took over all the channels.
Caught the epi today on dvr. I thought it explained the series premiere backstory pretty well. Nice to see Jimmy Buffett again, could have done without the gross snake blood drink, thanks. I knew the "realism" peeps would be all over the fact that no one could hit Cath(w/her long hair swinging in the breeze)or Steve out in the wide open on the bridge lol.
But the last scene with the little girl made me choke up. And not just because it's been a tough couple days here in Beantown.
WOW - Something for everyone tonight! Cath in her bikini(looking fine!) for the guys, Magnum references for the old folks (like myself, who actually watched Magnum back in the day), Steve looking fine all the way thru (ladies), plenty of Chin/Kono for the C&K fans, lots of kick-a$$ action for action fans and plenty of lovely scenery for all. Even a couple car-guments for those, like myself, who love them. Steve shirtless at some point, woulda made this epi PERFECT, but alas...
Fun episode, very Season 1. For all who mention the "unresolved plot lines", relax, I think we'll get there.
#JohnnyH50 - with ya on the "can't wait to see what is up with Kono's gun being returned by Adam's brother" mystery. Betting we'll be finding out soon as there are only a few episodes left this season.
Typical H-50 hyping the "Dog the Guest Star" and giving him 30 seconds. Not that it broke my heart, but they do that all the time.
I'll repeat again for the reality peeps "if you want reality, don't watch this show,cause you'll go crazy". Just enjoy the scenery both human and otherwise.
Decent episode, I like but Cath and Steve together. Danno was a hoot with his "insider" roller derby knowledge. Mom is gonna "mysteriously disappear" again soon, mark my words. As someone else mentioned, she got a new show to go too. And when that show fails, she'll be back on 5-0 - Joe White is coming back - same reason.
Steve ACTUALLY SAID "I got issues Mom" LOL. I wish we could have heard him and Cath talk it out when he went to see her.
One last thing, WHAT was with that black outfit he had on at the end? Yikes!
@hawaiinow - Someone DID mention Max Weinberg being Springsteen's drummer cause I then re-watched the episode and was like "oh yeah, that is him". Been to a couple Springsteen concerts "back in the day" but didn't pick up on that right away like you did.
And as for "the Train guy" the reviewer mentions him above and again I was like "oh yeah". I love their top 10 song, my kids LOVE them, love them but I could get hit by the Train and not recognize any of them ;o) He did make a GREAT villan though.
I like how H50 sneaks in these interesting characters & will be looking more carefully now.
Wow is it me or do we have alot of cranky peeps on here this week?
Thanks for posting the ratings every week @Walter.
