Hawaii Five-O > Hawaii Five-O Review: "Mea Makamae" > Comments Page 3
I like Steve and Danny, you guys are messing with a good thing! Sorry to see Katherine leave, liked her with Steve. Not sure I trust Joe!
Could Joe be involved in whatever Steve's father was involved in and that is the reason he is trying to keep Steve from digging deeper? I just don't trust him.... a la Jenna King. So far this season Danny's role seems to be getting smaller and smaller. The thing I loved most about last season was the banter between the two of them. They haven't had that much this season. I'm glad he did go for "coffee" at the end. I will miss Catherine. She was great with Steve.
Karen I don't think the writers/CBS are listening to the fans. If they did, then Lauren German's stupid character would be dead or called away already. Anything, just off the show. If you notice, since she came, the ratings have dropped and will continue to do so.
This episode was a little better than the last two, but still really missing the Steve/Danny scenes. They have been cut way to much! Hated the way the writers ended Steve and Katherine. Between Danny sleeping with his married ex and Steve awkwardly hugging his apparently long time girl friend who has saved his butt on countless occasions I worry about the writers. They are making these men out to be dogs when it comes to women. It is also disgusting that Steve and Danny have made to effort to reach out to Kono. It was like she never existed to them. I hope the people who run things for this show are listening to the fans!!!
I really did enjoy the episode except one thing bugged me. Steve is very proud of his military service and of those that serve. I didn't find it in good form that Steve would bring up the tape to Joe at a time of paying respect to a fallen soldier. Seemed out of character to me. Once again though the show starts with a bang and leaves you wanting more. And totally agree with Mrs Cleaver... this Steve/Joe time is really cutting into the McDanno time! Those two work so well off each other.
Peter Lenkov has tweeted that Lori is NOT a love interest for Steve. Apparently the whole world misundestood when CBS introduced Lori "Wilson" as a potential love interest for him. They really did mean the "potential" part.
Other than Lori's continued prescence (still waiting to see her do something that merits regular status), I HATE that Steve has not even called Kono to see if she still lives in Hawaii. What happened to ohana, which was #1 in season 1?
Why was Lori the profiler so surprised to learn the old lady suffers from Alzehimer's? Wouldn't she have been told before being allowed to go in to interview her? What kind of profiler/police officer is she that she doesn't even check why an elderly patient is in a care facility?
The teaser to next week showed Kono getting shot. I hope it isn't one of those impossible-to-believe TV plots where a main character gets a horrible injury and miraculously recovers in record time. And the writers teased us last week with the CIA agent working for Wo Fat. Was surprised they didn't do anything with that last night. Eager to see how that plays out.
After last night I'm in agreement with Mrs. Smith about Kono. I asked last week why Kono would be thrown to the dogs at I.A. without a union lawyer to represent her, but after last night I started thinking about I.A. "showing up" at her house...that is possibly where she was "asked" to volunteer for an undercover assignment to root out the other bad cops in return for clearing her record. It would also answer the question of Steve being aloof toward her. He knows what's up with her.
This episode was a little closer to the old show - some great scenes between McGarrett & Danno (altho, I miss Danno's tie). But still not back up to par. Just don't think the new girl adds anything to the show. Granted the writers aren't doing her any favors, but if they don't have anything interesting for her to say or do, cut her lose. It seems so forced. I like the new romance for Danny - good chemistry and she's a secondary character, which is what the love interests should be. I'm almost ready for Terry O'Quinn to leave too...too much screen time, but at least his character has a storyline.
Series2 hasn't started over here yet, but I agree with the other comments, if Danny, Chin & Kono are shoved to the back I won't be watching. The team chemistry from the last series is what made it so enjoyable, if that has been pushed to the side I think they will lose a lot of viewers, they can tweak things a bit but why smash a winning formula? Who is Lauren German I have never heard of her, is she well known in America?
i love watching hawaii on cbs
I think if what Steve doesn't know about his father and his dealing with Wo Fat will come back to bite him.
And eventually Chin is gonna start investigating and it'll hit the fan probably right in the middle of something sensitive and she'll get the order to get rid of him.
Yes, having guest stars is great but stop making them part of the regular cast. Let the supposed spy for the gov drop in ever so often and get rid of OQuin and bring back the rest. You have ruined the show and to many good actors are going to loose their job when this thing is cancelled.
Liked this episode a whole lot. Funny scenes with Max, Danny and Steve. Nice chemistry between Scott and Autumn Reester. Story was interesting. Steve in scuba suit!
Things that could have been done better. 1. Awkwardness between Steve and Catherine. What was that about? 2. Lori German character. No explanations needed. 3. Why is Steve showing apathy towards Kono? That is out of character for him. Is he so busy that he hasn't even gone to see how she is doing? After all, he is the one who stole the money. I hope there is a good explanation for this.
Am I the only that sees that Kono is working undercover.
I liked last nights show. I love that Max is getting more screen time. I think he is an awesome addition to the show and fits in really well. The scene between Catherine and Steve was stupid. Who acts like that when there was a relationship between them. To me, it made Steve look like a player who only used her both sexually and for his own personal gain. Like the new girl for Danny (I also really liked Rachael). Terry O'Quinn was never my favorite in Lost but I sure do like him in this show. I am extremely disappointed in Chin and Kono being written as "the background" of the show. What really pisses me off is the Lori character taking front and center stage. Are you kidding me? Please tell me this is a 4 or 5 episode JOKE!!!! The actress is not good and the character doesn't even fit in with the team. Come on writers. You can do much much better than this.
What was up with the obviously intentional awkwardness between Steve & Cath?
Every time you have seen these two together they are either in the rack, or just having jumped out of it. And in this episode she's leaving for a long time and Steve hugs her with all the enthusiasm he'd show to hug his grandma. Not even a kiss goodbye? I suppose the writers wanted us to "get" that their relationship is over, so Steve can move on romantically.
Hope it's not with Lori, I don't think Steve should be sleeping with someone who works for him.
Liked the new girl for Danny. Glad he is moving on from his bipolar (Dan/Stan/Dan/Stan - Jersey/Hawaii/Jersey/Hawaii) ex-wife.
Kono & Chin seem to be kind of afterthoughts these days. Not liking that.
A car-gument YAY! Have missed those.
I like Joe/Steve together but it does cut into Steve/Danny time. Why did Joe lie about the sending the tape in?
Patty Duke was good, Peter Fonda was forgettable.
Loving seeing more of Max.
Did anyone else notice Lauren German's eyebrows last night? She looks like Mr. Spock on Star Trek. I too am afraid that we will be left with only German's character Lori on the show. If and when that happens, I am done as I am sure most of us will be. Shame on Peter L for ***king up a really good show.
I think Lauren German has totally ruined the dynamics of this show. It looks like she is replacing Scott Caan as Steve's partner. I absolutely agree that she got more screen time that the other girls and almost more than Scott Caan. Who did she do to get this part?
I liked this episode except for one MAJOR factor. Lauren German got more screen time than Grace Park and Michelle Borth put together. Almost more than Scott Caan. There is something going on here. Not good for the show's ratings.
this is a TV show, Steve will find out about the video soon enough... i hate when things get predictable and when they add an intrigue just for the sake of adding an intrigue.
I'm so satisfied with this new episode,it seems everything's getting back to the same situation as last season,u know,the cargument,the chemistry between Steve and Danny,although it's not exactly the same.
Danny'll get a new GF who I think is cute and pretty,that's good news for me.I myself like the actress,also the role.But if Cath stayed,I would be more glad.
Steve had to say goodbye to his 'old friend',while Danny found his 'new relationship'.It's a little bit sorrowful but that is what we call 'Life'!
And I'm glad to see that Chin did not abandon and give up on Kono.Well,I'm sure he will get Kono's back the same as Kono did to him.
