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.
I agree with Suzanne's comment. Too many shows drag it out before they make the obvious solution as to if she is her mother. You take a DNA test, what else. If she refuses then you know its a lie. As for Hank not using gloves, as a nurse, I certainly noticed that also. Gloves are infection control for both. The hand washing thing would be boring to watch, we have to assume that he has. As many times as a doctor or nurse has to wash their hands, it would not leave much time for the story. I did like that Hank left his medical bag for the kid, it was a great moment. I do understand the comment that he had nothing to help the patient he was dealing with, unless we are to assume he took the supplies needed. Lots of holes, but its not real life. I agree not the best writing this season, although, I don't think its been as bad some say. I'm still watching.
I thought this was an incredible episode. As I was watching it, I was thinking of what I would say here. But, you said most of it already. I agree with your review totatlly, I loved Sanchez in this, and also loved that they are showing Provenza dealing with not being the top person. No matter what the character or actress of Raydor does, you are always going to have people who are going to be critics and not give the character a chance, I call it the Brenda syndrome, and they can't get over it. I loved Brenda and she made the show, but its time to move on. These characters are changing and adjusting to a new leader, as is expected. I love that Rusty is becoming more understanding, as he sees what Sharon has to go through. The red folder that was handed to Rusty, that they were going to go over at dinner. Could that be a petition for adoption?Does anyone have any other ideas? Great episode.
Jen....I don't recall telling you how to feel. My point was, (and by the way I did not point anybody out) all the questions aren't answered yet, thats the point. People are complaining because they don't know one thing or the other. We all have questions, they aren't going to answer them in a promo. Thats the whole idea of a cliff hanger. Unless they published the script and I missed it, how does anyone know? Give them a chance to answer the questions, then complain. I guarantee all the answers won't be in the first episode either. There have comments by others that have said season 3 will be just as bad as season 2. How do they know? I don't believe in crystal balls.
