Hawaii Five-O > Hawaii Five-O Review: "Ua Lawe Wale" > Comments Page 3
Kono's working undercover for Internal Affairs. I'm calling it now!
The original series also has mainland people in charge. It was silly then and worse now. I'm sure they could find a Hawaiian actor to put in a position of authority. The IA character is creepy and why wasn't someone with Kono at the hearing. I hope they keep her in and not just in a smaller part.
After last weeks' exciting premiere, this episode was a huge let-down. Blah story involving another kidnapping plot. Sloppy writing. The girls' parents thought the mother died in childbirth, but the mother said she faked the baby's death and managed to find adoptive parents. How did she do that with such a controlling father. I guess there's no time for every detail. I hope the writers, Melissa Glen and Jessica Rieder, don't turn out to be this years' Carol Barbee.
I don't know yet about the Lori character. I think she's just filling in for Grace, who wants to be in Vancouver more.I think Kono's the weakest of the main four, but a lot of people wouldn't accept her loss.
I'd rather see Terry O'Quinn as a main character, more than Lauren German.
The worst thing though, IMO, was not giving a hint about what the Jenna Kaye/Wo Fat scene from last week, was about, and now she's leaving. We definitely need more continuity, and the producers need script Supervisors.
I Enjoyed the show This Week, but really really really missed Terry O'Quinn. We love him on the First show and was very Happy to see him, but when he was not on the next show, we were very disappointed. I have a lot of friends that say, if he is not on every show, they are not going to watch this year at all. We would like Steve to say Book em Danno on every show. Bring Terry Back on Every show. I love Terry O'Quinn. Va Queen
Awful. I could barely watch this week.
I hope the makers of this once great show will see these comments and go back to the idea of the first shows. Get back to the 4. Recurring guest stars yes, but you had a winner in 4 leads. You are destroying your show.
I felt like Jenna Kaye was basically fired from the show for the
younger hotter blonde. Not saying that's wrong but just my impression.
Also, a dumb plot point was for Steve not too include German in the
kidnapping investigation was due to not trusting her with his life.
That might be the dumbest line written by a writer. Anytime a team
can get their hands on cops to help in a time sensitive investigation they
should use them asap. Steve put the kids life at risk to serve his own ego.
i thought this episode was completely off. the difference between last week's premiere - when the original team was working together - and this week was night & day. the whole love/hate thing between Lori and Steve is so obvious and cliche. and really? a barbie doll cop who wears pencil skirts and high heels - again, cliche. they finally found an interesting spin to put on Jenna, and then they go and add in yet another new female character. i think it's good to add in some secondary characters to keep things fresh, like Max, the new Governor, the IA guy (Tom Sizemore) but leave the primary team alone. and p.s. please don't put Steve in another Hawaiian shirt - leave him in his trademark cargo pants!
oh yes!!! the ep was great, one of my fav tv shows is back full force it was emotional, dynamic and tense where it was supposed to be. Steve chasing to get to the plain on that horse, was to die for. Lori is growing on me, i still think that the promising issue was not the best way to show us how pro she is but she adds sth good to the team, plus she goes well with Steve. the comment she made about Steve and Danny being married? ha, priceless.
the scenery was gorgeous as usual and Kono story line is great, it really makes me emotionally invest in this show.
i agree with you Jim, that they could put a couple of people who look like natives in charge of at least sth. and i was expecting Steve to uncover Jenna's treachery this ep and the fact that he didn't frustrates me.
maybe this is a new development and she was not a traitor before but Wo Fat is now blackmailing her, on the other hand if that is true then he would want her to stay with McGarett instead of leave so maybe the whole
i am watching the ep now and i will comment later but i have one thing to say.
Lori is ex FBI profiler, she is not a newbie! promising to the family is naive and unprofessional. Steve was right.
Grace Park asked for a female co- lead last year, after it became clear that Taryn Manning wasn't, for whatever reason, going to make it. So I thought Lauren was a great addition. We have 3 fab leading men, and now 2 women... until Larissa comes back maybe. That works for me. And as with our men, very different women in looks and demeanor, but still able to kick A. I liked her. And if you saw the promo for next week, TOQ is back.
Overall, I thought this was a good episode, but I have to admit, I would like to see someone other than a Haole in a leadership role. There was the one island looking officer in uniform that drove Steve and company to the store, but that isn't leading, just chauffeuring. I disagree with Dwayne Johnson, though, at least as an IA head, maybe somewhere else...ooh, like Lt. Governor. I mean would it not make sense that Hawaiians would want someone of similar ethnicity in a political office somewhere? And why wouldn't the Governors next liaison be Hawaiian, versus coming from the Mainland?
I think my favorite comment of the night came from the new girl, when she asked Steve and Danny how long they had been married. It was funny how quickly it silenced their bickering. Did it seem funny to anyone else that Steve, of all people, told her they don't make "those kinds of promises around here?" He's made them before, we've heard him. After she said, "Well, I do," I was waiting for him t
She seemed to me kind of cookie cutter. I wish they had picked an actress who looked more like a real person than a model. I hope that they do develop her into a valuable character but right now she seems there more for eye candy than anything else
You're right, I didn't hate Lori as much as I thought I would... but there is still no need for her! With Dr. Max being made a regular, Terry O'Quinn being recurring & Kamekona still helping out the team doesn't need anyone else. They have the crime of the week, Kono's drama, Wo Fat drama, Jenna being a secret traitor, and the introduction of Terry O'Quinn & a new mayor. There's just no need for someone else, there is enough going on!
