Cont....I thought the crime this week was great, I too thought about the father, but its hard to blame the son for his feelings. What kind of mother would risk her child's life, because she was afraid that there would be more people doing the same thing. Loved the headless thing and the way they did it. The writing was good.
As I've said before, I don't like Doris particularly, and I am glad that they are being fooled by her, but I love Christine Lahti, and this is an important part of the back of the McGarrett family. Still can't wait until Mary comes into the picture to meet Mama.
Chin was a little less this week, there will be more mourning and affects down the line. Very few people show grief every moment. I'm still waiting to see Adam, I hope its soon. Great episode.
I loved this episode. I did not think there was much to complain about, but I knew someone would.
Mrs. Clever...I agree, I loved Kono and Danny together, I don't recall much of that since the first season when they were trying to lure the dumb guy to the bar with one of the employees text messages. I still like Steve/Danny, but a little mix up is good.
Catherine is played perfectly. Catherine and Steve are boyfriend and girlfriend, of course she is going to stay over. This is reality, which is what a lot of people complain does not happen with this show. Get over it, yes she does help him, so would you.
Cont..... I figured this would be cut off......Chin and Kono went in first, and Catherine was back-up. I was not thrilled with Steve not telling Danny what Catherine is in his life, but Danny is going to continue to point out what she does for him, because thats part of his snarkyness, and someone needs to point out to Steve that he needs a woman in his life, as Steve has done to Danny in the past.
You figure that Adam would be a conflict between Chin and Kono, even though he saved Kono, I'm looking forward to seeing how this plays out. Love Adam, but still don't know if he is actually trying to change the business.
I like this very much. Danny's snarking is part of the show and its not going away. How entertaining it would be if he followed everything Steve said and did without a word. Danny and Steve's exchanges are funny, and I too liked the flow of this show. They concentrated on one thing, which is what a lot of people complain about, but I'm sure there will be the usual complaints.
As for Catherine, I would not like Steve having a problem with him calling her his girlfriend. I think that is where they are going with this, that he does not realize how much a part of his life she really is, and that he trusts her as much as he trusts Danny, or the others. But there will be some tension at some point, we just have to be patient to see where this goes. As for her having a vest, it has been shown before that 5-0 carries their vests and extras in the truck of their car, so its not hers, and she went along, because she can handle a gun being a Navy officer, besides Chin and Kono went in first, she was back up.
This H50 is not the same as the old one, and it does not claim to be, nor should it be. It does pay dues to the old show, but its not the same. The old show would not do well today.
It does not matter what this show does, someone is not going to be happy. We want character stuff, we want procedural stuff, we want Catherine, we don't want Catherine, we want originality, we want reality, Danny's funny, Danny's annoying,......
I think this is a good show, can there be improvements, of course. If I did not like it, I would not watch. If a show annoys so much, then why watch it?
Entertainment is a break from the stress of the world that we all experience, why can't we just keep a TV show in perspective. There are other things to do.
(cont.)...Chin's situation is still heartbreaking. The ceremony at the beginning was beautiful, I wish they would have showed a little more, and Danny comforting Chin at the end was great. Both of them showed the emotions that you would expect. Both great actors.
As for Kamekona, isn't he suppose to be played as someone trying to get to the next big payoff. That is exactly what you would expect from him. I think that might even lead us to another appearance by Jimmy Buffett, which I would love. Next week looks good, but I'm sure all those are ready to rip that one apart as well.
I agree that the ease that Catherine had hacking into a computer was way too easy. A lot of WITSEC witnesses would be dead if it was that easy.
However, I liked this show very much. I agree the opener was better. Many people were complaining about the crime of the week. Well it was there and the core 4 handled it. Catherine out on her own was great, should have eased those that think she is going to interfere with 5-0. Her place right now is clearly helping Steve with figuring out Mama's moves. Loved the blue corvette, and getting info by using a little sex appeal is what you would expect from a crime show. (cont.)
CONTINUED>>>>> I thought DDK was excellent, he finally has a meaty part. I loved it when he shot Delano, although I'm sure there will be some payment for that. It was heart breaking to see him come home to find the chickens in the oven. Sorry Malia is gone, but it does give him a great story line. Not enough of Kono, although I loved it when she jumped on the car, and shot Toothpick through the windshield. I'm glad Adam was there to save her. Still like this relationship, although I'm sure there will be some complications. It's definitely more interesting then Kono/Fong.
I thought it was a great episode. I'll worry about the ratings once we have a few episodes in. I think it will pick up. I thought the helicopter bit was over the top, although I did laugh at it. I also laughed when I saw it in a Bond movie. I didn't care for the Boo Boo comment.
Catherine was great. I'm glad to see them show her as kick ass, for real, not just say it and not show it. I like Christine Lahti's portrayal of Doris. I think she played it just right. I'm not happy with Doris, I think she could have handled things better. Also, they had Steve say his father was looking for Doris' killer for 20 years which we knew before, but what I don't understand is why would she tell Joe White and not her husband. I like the what the character brings to the show, but right now not liking her much. I loved that Danny did not trust her. The cargument was good, but where does she come off telling Danny how to conduct relationships? I truly hope Wofat is not Steve's 1/2 brother, that would be over the top. They did not say that in the show, so I'm still hopeful, but Doris and Wofat not shooting each other means they have some sort of connection.
This episode was outstanding. I love Eric McCormack in this role, shows what a good actor he really is. I really can't say anything more than what others have said. This show is improving, and the writers totally fooled me. I liked that the murder probably through him into a psychotic break that lasted the weekend. But, that we learn at the end, that the murder really did happen. Very nice twists.
