Hawaii Five-O > Hawaii Five-0 Review: Together Again > Comments Page 2
OMG. Lori has got to go. And fast...before I completely lose interest. The original four made the show interesting, funny and the relationship between Danny & McGarrett made the whole show. Lori can't act, isn't pretty, funny, interesting - nothing. Just takes up screen shots where we could be viewing our favorite group. The producers should really take note - they are losing viewers with the addition of Lori. The ratings before this last episode were down dramatically.
LOL, funny one. I don't think Lauren German can carry a show. She pretty much proves that on Hawaii Five 0. Spinoff...you crack me up. Ya, I saw the eiposde of Human Target she was in too. I had to go back and watch it online because I didn't know that was her. She was pretty good in that. Maybe she should just do guest spots until she has more experience under her belt. (I am giving her the benefit of doubt so don't kill me people)
Ouch, I didn't realize how lonely the club was going to be liking Lori, and for coldzone, I would so watch Lori in her own spin-off :)
On the flip side I should have mentioned my wife's comment about Steve with his shirt of.. I believe it was "yum, yum, yum"... I'm glad to see she's not alone in her admiration of Steve's "assets" (as it were).
Lauren German isn't even pretty or sexy. I don't like her character (or her personality based on the last interview I saw at the SOTB). I did however, like her in the part in Human Target so I have to believe it in Lenkov who is behind this. Maybe she's his girlfriend. We all know how that works. He needs to put her in another one of his shows if he wants to do her a favor. She's just not good in H50. Sorry.
Uh, sorry, but Lori is not even close to a win/win, unless you are some doe-eyed fanatic who likes bad acting but doesn't mind the view, she is ruining the enjoyment of the show. She sucks up the scenery. And it wouldn't be Kurtzman, he's not the show runner, Lenkov is. Maybe she should have her own show so you can have your win/win, and the rest of the fan world can have their show back.
i don't like lori either! i agree with everyone that it's ruining my favourite thing about hawaii five-0 is danny and steve. steve seems to spend more time with lori and joe than danny. i'm sick of all the guest stars. like, really, what's the point of doing a cross-over if the actor's barely in it? plus, isn't lori supposed to be a profiler? hotch could wipe the floor with her.
Ya I know what you're thinking, it doesn't make sense. Kensi Blye works for NCIS. Her being a villain messes up both shows now. Also Wo Fat was clearly surprised at the mention of "Shellburn" from Joe so he didn't know about that before. I don't know, what do you think?
I think Kensi is working for Wo Fat. Steve didn't tell anyone outside of 5-0 and Joe except for her about Makoto. Wo Fat killed Makoto not long after Steve told Kensi. Jenna didn't tell Wo Fat or else he would have acted sooner. Why was Kensi in Jakarta? Interesting past... I call this one!
I can't stand Lori! Why wasn't Dano in the room with him getting ready. If anyone was going to try and talk him out of it it should have been him. Instead of seeing a hilarious conversation, I am left picturing it in my mind. And boy it would have been HILARIOUS!
Her acting is awful. I will give her a + for her taste in men, but seriously. She is getting all the screen time now. Kono should have been talking with Max, not Lori.
Chin and Lori left in the dust.
GET RID OF HER!
Main characters. Core four that made the show what it was! Fantastic, witty, drama, and a cute bro-mance. I want Joe in the group instead. He has chemistry with all of them.
I will give MAJOR PROPS to the writers! Starting the episode with Steve and his shirt off! Then walking in and seeing his perfected abs and sweat and to "Thunderstruck" in the background. FAVORITE SONG! Seriously I could have paused those shots for an entire hour and been fine with nothing else:)
Keep the shirts off writers!
Oh Jim,I'm sorry,but apparently 'That’s not “win/win” in MY book.'
coz in my opinion the writers just have been forcing the viewers to accept the Lori character as a female McG and potential love interest for McG from the first minute she showed up.
Especially in this episode,Steve behaved like a jerk.
As we all know everytime Steve started risking his life,Danny got to lose his temper,coz as a partner,as a bro he cared about Steve.But in this episode,the way he treated Danny made me feel that Danny was a stupid 3rd grade kid.He preferred flirting with Lori,whose acting is dull and ridiculous to me,to noticing Danny's concern about him.That's definitely rude and unbearable in reality.
Even though the writers want to reshape the Lori character,do they have to sacrifice the positive side of Danny's personality and the bromance between he and Steve.
That is the only thing I did not and will never understand.
BTW I like the scence Danny with the murdered guy's kid to
I'm sorry I don't know what show the reviewer was watching but the episode was horrible. I have tried to stick with it this season but seriously I am done. First, as a fan of NCIS: Los Angeles I was very disappointed with the Kensi scene. Really CBS, all your promos for a week hyped her coming to the show and you do one not even 5 minute throw away scene that could have been done with any random person. Second, apparently we aren't going to address the fact that Kono is back. No welcome back, so glad you are here or how about Kono this is Lori the totally worthless person we added to our team in your absence. I almost felt like I missed an episode. Lastly, get rid of Lori she brings nothing to the show, all she does is take from the other characters. Danny is Steve's partner NOT Lori. She has got to be one of the most horribly written and horribly acted characters I have ever seen on TV.
Enjoyed the episode. Loved the action. Loved Danno with the murdered guy's kid.
Totally agree that Lori needs to go. She's just vapid with that doe eyed school girl crush on her boss. She adds nothing to the team and disrupts the chemistry of every scene she's in. Bland, boring, useless, awful all around.
I agree with the majority. The Lori character is not needed, and her appearances appear forced. There is no need for an active love interest. Cat and Steve's dynamic was great. They were friends and lovers, and we see her once in a while. There is no need for romance between two of the members of Hawaii Five-0...it screws up the entire dynamic of the team. Give us more of Kono, Chin, and Danny. That is what made season 1 so great! I am also hoping Lori gets killed off! If the script hasn't been written yet, perhaps the writers and producers will take heed of the fans' comments and write the elimination of Lori in now.
I don't like the idea of McGarrett having a romance with either Lori or Kono. Kono is too young for him (on the show anyway, in real life she is older - 37 can u believe that?!)and I think guys who date women who work FOR them are creepy. Work WITH them (as equals) is fine but both women work FOR McGarrett on this show. Danny should have been with Steve in that locker room, cracking jokes and trying to talk Steve out of it. Coulda been some great "bro-mance" moments there. Instead we have Lori chatting about her "ex-boyfriend" blah blah - snore! Trying to give her the benefit of the doubt, but the writers are making it hard.
Danny was great with the murdered guy's son, good to see Kono/Chin back working together, Max's small scene's definitely add to the show. Overall an enjoyable episode. The fight with Joe and Wo Fat was good but WHY does Wo Fat do his own dirty work? He could have brought a goon or two with him to kill Joe, same as he could have had someone else kill the guy in th
The episode was good. The 1 thing I have a problem with was Lori taking all the screen time from kono. I barely get to see kono on the team, she has fewer lines and scene and Lori has all the lines and scene taking from kono. I was piss by Lori for trying to take kono place when she is back with her team but I feel like kono is not even there with her team anymore cuz of Lori. If this going to happen again on the next episode then i will switch to something else. My favorite character is kono and I would luv to see her more on the team.
Lori needs to go! She adds nothing to the show, and practically everyone agrees that she's a waste of space. It should have been Kono, Chin, and Danny backstage with McGarrett. At least they've known him longer than five minutes and wouldn't spend the whole time ogling him. Lori is unprofessional and waaaaay too obvious with her crush on Steve. I'm really hoping she doesn't end up his love interest. McKono is a way better match, and at least Kono knows how to do her job. Frankly, I've never seen Lori contribute anything useful. Get rid of her!
All right, everyone knows (but may have forgotten) shows are shot 13 episodes at a time (usually before the season), so unless WoFat gets to Lori first, she's in for the duration! Not knowing the "fans" would dislike her so much, there is not much the writers/directors/producers can do now!
That said, I too, was disappointed that Kelsie had 3 minutes of story time; that the Joe storyline is shifting (to possible backstabbing) and, unless they list him in the opening credits, thankfully limited; that Kono is being shoved aside (but has she been cleared yet to return by IA -- and what's with THAT story line? She should have been exonerated and welcomed back into the fold with a lot more hoopla than just show up for 3-5 minutes!); that now that Danny's former wife's storyline is dead, they should at least keep his daughter as a regular; give Chin more input in EVERYTHING; and finally, now that Steve's love interest has gone back to 'Combat Hospital' keep the love-light shining with a l
Joshua, I agree. I have no clue why they hired her. I mean, the cold delivery and lack of chemistry would have been obvious in a screen test. I'm of the opinion that somebody at the show owed her a favor. Like one poster said, I saw more chemistry between Steve and Kensi in one minute than we've seen with Lori in 4 episodes. It rattles my skull. I don't get it. I hate to watch my favorite show go down the crapper on account of bad casting.
Is everyone else just caught up to what I have been writing all along? This was a great show and can be again if they get rid of all the extra baggage including O'Quinn. This has become his show and he is not a good actor either. Do the writers or producers pay any attention to this site? I hope so before this show completely implodes.
Couldn't resist adding my "get rid of Lori fast" vote to all this. Bad start with her last night taping SMcG's knuckles and ogling him (badly). I bought the First Season DVD of this show, and nearly every episode builds on the team's dynamics credibly - so, in first season, we're introduced to four terrific characters and a great team, with a compelling leader; and in second season so far, that dynamic has suffered and certainly been severely messed up by a blond non-actress and a poorly conceived Lori character. Go back to what was being so well built in the first season - there are miles of stories to be explored on that base.
Joshua, all, what you saying it's right. Lori must gone, now and fast.
Are Lauren German's 12 episodes up anytime soon?...please! I set my dvr to record the show now. It's just gone downhill. The dynamic is gone. The bromance between Danny and Steve is gone. Grace and Danny are now background elements. Why would you F***up a show that was doing so well. Fire Lauren German and her boyfriend Peter L.
I am finding that Lori messes up the whole dynamic of the team she needs to go. I don't want her to end up with Steve its just too contrived. The Woo fat story needs some consistency its getting old. If Moonlight proved anything its that a sexy lead and great concept is not enough to carry a show with bad story telling.
A Charity fight event on the island would be so full of local legislators using their $200 free ticket that there wouldn't be room for anyone else but their relatives. Wo Fat without his posse is quite a stretch. As said in an earlier comment Wo Fat and Five-O has turned into Family Guy and the Chicken.
Patti if you want realistic then they would never have put that Lori character on the team and she sure would not be front and center. They obviously are not being realistic with ANYTHING on this show. Having said that, I don't mind a little unrealistic story line, this is tv. But Hell at least get someone who can act. Lauren German is terrible.
