I hope we see George Takei again, he did a great job as a moon shine uncle, but as far the amount of time, I thought it was appropriate for the episode. They can have him pop up again. Kono was in a lot in last several episodes, so it was someone else's turn. I love Grace Park, but come on people, Steve is the main character. I agree we needed more Kono and Chin, and we have gotten more Kono this season, as for Chin he had a couple of episodes, and I'm sure there will be more, be patient. I would love to see a three hour program every Monday, so we get to see all of them for a long time, but its not going to happen.
I saw the helicopter from Magnum PI also. I would love to see Tom Selleck come back for an episode, his show I watch and is on CBS so there is no network conflict. I'd love to see an older Magnum, but would even like to see him as maybe Catherine's father, seeing him react to Steve as her boyfriend. (cont.)
(cont.) As for the other story, I loved seeing Steve with the kids. Alex's love for children shows through, as does Danny. Grace has had a lot of time this season as well and I hope this continues. Loved seeing Grace be the one who crawls through the tunnel. The girl who played Lucy was wonderful, it was heartbreaking watching her cry when Ron said she was going with him.
I think Steve should have and did show more caution with a child there. If something happens to him, then Lucy has no chance on her own. He waited for the right moment, not knowing there was someone else, but then got away with Lucy. I doubt we will, but I hope we see Lucy again. Loved Madeline, she's a great leader. The little girl dumming it down for Danny was funny. I thought this was a great episode. This year has not disappointed.
I thought this was a great episode and very entertaining. I loved that we finally got to see Adam. His brother has to be the evil one. Kono was not being naive, she does not trust Michael. She defended Adam, but when Chin asked her about Michael she did not answer, and when they were at the table and Michael commented on her being a cop, she had another look that she was weary of him. Yes, the gun on the nightstand was not smart, but then we would not have the drama of what he did with the gun in the future. How many cops on TV have done the same thing? I know we have not had a lot of Chin lately, but his time will come, and I love Catherine, but not being in the last 2 shows was fine. She'll be back and I look forward to that, and to see how Chin gets more involved. Very happy we have seen so much of Kono this year. (Cont.)
I liked this episode very much. The two chase scenes were great. Chasing the drugged out naked guy was hilarious, Steve's look after having to tackle him, and Kono saying "put your hands behind your back, and keep your legs closed" was great. I very happy to see so much more of Kono. I love Steve and Danny together, but it great when they mix it up. I also love Catherine, but I agree she is not needed in every episode. I do love the Doris story also, its picking up. I think the writers leaving things alone for an episode or two and returning to it, is a good move. I think Behati actually did well with the lines she had, I did not expect much, but was surprised. She delivered the line with Danny on the couch stating people think Grace looks like him, and her saying "I don't see it" flowed and was done well.
I liked the episode. I still don't trust Granger, although it looks like he is starting to fit in a little more. As far as Sam, we all like things that are considered a little geeky, even an ex-navy seal.
Let try not make everything political. I don't think it was a jab at any military action, but lets face it, not every military move in our history was right, and no one can expect it to be. This is a TV show, not a documentary, if you are entertained, then thats all it should be.
Great episode. The usual dead military guy, but then the kidnapped girl carried the show. This has been a great show, and I see no slowing down. 5 stars.
Cont. As far as the Casey Anthony case, the prosecution were the idiots, and the jury had no choice. I think she did it, but the prosecution in its smug attitude did not prove it. So I think the jury did not watch TV, they went by the letter of the law, which is what you are suppose to do. The O.J. case could have used a less suspicious police detective, and actually the jury could have benefited from watching CSI, although it was not on then.
You can't blame TV or Movies for what people do. I watched Road Runner and Wiley Coyote and I have yet to drop a safe on anyone.
Hi Jim, You make some good points about McG being transported to a scene or Kono being a robot. That would not be true to the show, and would probably get a different crowd watching and would not last long.
My complaint is that every single episode someone, not just you, but someone points out some probability with reality. Its done on all the shows, but they seem to be pointed out on H50 more then any other show and yet its not any more than another other show. Some of what is pointed out, actually could happen. I can only speak for myself, but I don't just sit there and say its only a TV show so its fine. If I am entertained, why would I care so much that it probably would not happen in real life.
(cont.) As for Doris, I agree with the others that say, we are not suppose to like her. That's the character, she is complex, and a little psycho, she has been on the run for 20 years, how do you think she survived. Let's face it, there is a little of her in Steve, maybe not to the same extreme, but he didn't exactly do the legal thing especially in season 1, that everyone says they long for. But of course if we go back to that, they will complain about the reality again.
As for Catherine, I agree, she needs to be at work, or at least explain why she is not there. Otherwise, I love what they have done with her character. I was hoping she would have said no, when Doris asked her to not tell Steve, but I guess then because its a TV show, we would not have the conflict to come with Catherine and Steve down the road. I don't like that Doris is pulling her in to her mess, but I understand why they are doing it.
I thought this was a very solid show 4.5.
Oh reality police, what we do without you pointing out the obvious. Imagine a TV show where the main characters always win, they always survive fights, falls, explosions, shootings, stabbings, do things that are not legal, or are not what an intelligence officer would do. Let's see what would you call that, oh yeah, A TV SHOW. Seriously, don't take it so seriously.
I've seen Vanessa Marcil in other things, she is a good actress, and I loved her character and McG playing cat and mouse. It was a great twist on what McG is used to, she obviously was getting him frustrated. Also, I believe they have enough to charge her with murder on killing the flight attendant since she was wearing her clothes. I think that is reality.
