Hawaii Five-O > Hawaii Five-0 Review: Oh, the Horror > Comments Page 3
I love the show, but I on't want the McGarrett character get involved with his blonda co-worker. I'd like to see the brunette come back ; the navy gal
Hawaii 5 0 can be a better show if the writhers stop Danny "Scott Cann" from being a NAGGER!!!!! I can't stand NAGGING !!!!!!!!
Definetly an off episode but it can happen...biggest dislike was Danno and his attitude towards Hawaiin's beliefs...it made him seem ignorant...and they definetly need to put more native Hawaiin's in the mix!! :o)
George, four white people??? The last time I looked Daniel Dae Kim, Grace Park, and Masi Oka were Asian. When did they become Caucasian? Oh, and the only actual boyfriend that they showed for Grace, was in fact white.
You people are way over-thinking this show. It was never a gritty, serious drama, but always an escapist, fun, action show taking place in a beautiful, sunny setting. If you're going to pick every single aspect of the show apart, then you'll never enjoy it and I suggest you stop watching.
First off, Kono needs to give her invisible woman costume to Lori immediately. Second of all, the dude that hit Lori over the head should be shot. Just a little bit harder dude, come on. There are so many people who would love to take your place and would have done it right!
I can just see the production meeting:" Hey October 31 is a Monday. Let's do a Halloween-centric episode. Who can we get as a guest star? Jamie Lee Curtis isn't available? How about that Elm Street guy? Put in a scene with Danny and his daughter trick or treating. And find a funny costume for Max." I can't wait for the Christmas show. Yes it's a TV show, but can somebody answer why did the bad guys pick a sacred burial ground to dispose of bodies? They couldn't find a less conspicuous place in all of Oahu? With all their resources available at the funeral home? Also what kind of a leader is Steve? One of your team is knocked unconscious and you don't insist demand they be taken to a hospital?
Maybe not the greatest episode, but I thought appropriate enough for a Halloween episode.
I'm also not a big Lori fan, and do not like love interest between team members. I have no problem with Lauren German herself, its that Kono and the others seem to be pushed aside while they try to develope the Lori character. At least last night we saw Steve and Danno more as partners and the car scene has returned. Even though they made Danno kind of an idiot, I agree with a previous writer that he should have scoffed at the idea, but kept off the so called sacred ground, until their priest arrived. I'm never going to like the Lori/Steve thing. It's been done on numerous other shows, but it usually took several seasons. I did not mind the what was Lori wearing questions. That is what men and women do when they work and are friends, they joke around about things. It was nice to see Grace back, she is getting a lot bigger. I hope they show her more before she grows out of the role that
At least they gave Kono a costume, the invisible woman. Can we please get rid of Lori. Someone there wouldn't be a 3rd season, may not be a second half of season 2.
I agree with Tamara: Lori should NEVER call Danny "Danno"! That nickname belongs to Grace and Steve alone.
I liked Lori's character when she first came on, but I'm quickly losing patience. The writers seem to have no plan for her time on the show except to make her "Steve's Love Interest", which means they're not only all over the place with her characterization but also throwing a whole bunch of cliches our way, trying to make us like her. The fan fiction community has a name for that type of character: Mary Sue. And no one can write a Mary Sue without coming off like a 13-year-old girl writing her first fic. Honestly, this character had two interesting aspects that might have made her useful to 5-0 and/or the story as a whole: her profiling background and her potential to the the opposition within the group. Now she's not doing anything that Kono couldn't do (and do better).
Danny was completely OOC. Taking Grace trick-or-treating at his hotel instead of driving her to a
As I sit here and read all of the comments one huge thing occurs to me. It's the writer's fault, especially Peter Lunkof. I loved Laura (forgot her last name), the governor's assistant. But what do they do? Kill her off and bring in some actress who can't act and doesn't fit in-no chemistry etc. I don't get it. Unfortunately, even though all of you are correct and I agree with you, Hawaii Five 0 is going to be short lived. Totally agree can't see a Season 3.
This episode had some of the best and worst scenes of the season. Some great McDanno chemistry again. Loved the scene with Gabby, the museum chick, and Steve and Danny. Of course Lori just stood there with nothing to say. She did not have one line of dialogue that couldn't have been said by Kono or Chin or another regular cast member. The fact that they are apparently going to go in the direction of a love interesting for Steve is horrifying and beyond forced. And when she called Danny 'Danno' that was almost the end for me. It's almost like they want us to dislike her!
"If Steve and Danny must have love lives, it needs to be in the background, not the forefront like Castle or Bones because frankly as dumb..."
I think that is what they want. They want a woman of pure white lineage with no trace of ethnic ancestry in them for two guys of pure white lineage on the show..and now that is not the reality of Hawaii or even the US except perhaps Alabama or Mississippi. Why cant Kono be the love interest for a white guy? Happens all the time in the real world and happens in Hawaii all the time. These shows are to escape reality for the audience and there is a significant racist audience in the US which will never accept Kono as girlfriend for Steve or Danny. Similarly, even more so, they will never accept a white love interest for Chin Ho Kelly and they are desparately trying to insert a love interest for one of the white guys. Why do you think Mao's Last Dancer made most of its money from outside the US?
Any show based in an area where the minority is a substantial majority, should at least have half the minority representation. Having Hawaii Five 0 with one Asian or Polynesian and five white people is equivalent to having a show based in the Southeast of DC with one or no blacks and mostly white people. Now, they would not try that would they?
I am a fan of the true show, the one that existed before they f*&*ed it up and changed KEY elements that made the show what it was! The main thing being a team of four with Steve, Danny, Chin & Kono! Lori has no place on the team, and no chemistry with Steve as a gf.....time for the show to cut their losses and let her go! If she has to be on, then she needs to be recurring every few episodes with about as much screen time as Max gets, one to two scenes! And she needs to stop drooling over Mcgarrett! bring Kat back for him, or Kensi from NCIS but keep it in the background. If Steve and Danny must have love lives, it needs to be in the background, not the forefront like Castle or Bones because frankly as dumb as it sounds the most important personal relationship for them on this show is their friendship. That's what made this show good, was the dynamic between Steve and Danny.
One statement - the more negative comments I read, the more I love the show. I am a true Hawaii Five-0 fan.
por lo menos se pudo ver mas de kono en este episodio, me enoja seguir viendo a lori tomar mas de la pantalla que los verdaderos que ganaron para que hicieran la segunda temporada. Los escritores deberian explotar mas el personaje de kono y chin que estoy segura que lo haran bien. No entiendo si steve necesitaba de una pareja femenina que lo siguiera a todas partes porque no colocar a kono y si he mos visto que kono no es una damisela debil, sabe como defenderse, como el caso cuando fue atrapada por wot fa ella misma se defendio como pudo y nadie supo nunca lo que paso, steve ni siquiera supo que wot se la habia llevado. Estoy harta, enojada de que nos quieran meter por los ojos a lori westonnnnnnnnnnnn la odioooooooooo
If Kono goes and/or Lori Weston takes over, then they should move the show to LA and film just as they do CSI Miami, Cougar Town etc. I think the ratings will drop to such a point it might be too expensive to film in HI. Most of the main cast is from the mainland anyway (unlike the original show).
Really doesn't matter much because I don't think there will be a Season 3.
Nadriss, you are perfectly clear to me and everyone here. Sure wish the stupid writer(s) could see and hear how clear everyone's voices are. I think they hear, but they just don't give a s**t. Lori is a waste of time. Being shoved down our throats in each episode and overshadowing Kono and Danny. I am so sick of it. I taped last nights, then watched it this morning. I see I didn't miss much, yet again! It's a shame such a great show is going down the tubes. If I were the cast, I would be polishing up my resume!
Lori's character adds nothing to the show ... Why add a character so that we know not totally other. Since the episode 2 is everywhere, it occupies a large part of the show even more than Kono and Chin in season 1 ....
Why are so many differences in treatment, I really do not like the way things go in this show....
Peter do you know that you are killing the show ... I want to find the team as it was in season 1, I want to find the true OHANA
I am nostalgic for the first season
Sorry for my bad english...
I liked this episode only because we get the bromance back which we all fell in love with in season 1 and I loved the endscene with only our fav 4:) Chin and Steve on Flip-Flops adorable!!
What I dislike was how Danny was written when will he ever except that he lives in Hawaii the disrespect for other's beliefs does seem OOC to me. In my head canon, Danny rolled his eyes and snarked a bit, but waited for the blessing anyway.
Lori using the name Danno NO!! JUST NO!! That name’s only to be used by two people on this planet, and that is Gracie and Steve. Everybody else is off limits!!!!!!!!!!!!!
And it bugs me that when Kono was shot Steve didn't even care and now Lori was hit on her head and he is all worring GROSS!!! and it was weird when you get hit with such a heaving thing you stand up if nothing happens not even a bit of blood Hmmm wish that guy could be back to do it all over again but then 10x better!!!!
It was cute to see Gracie was back and Gabriela aww Danny calls
First, this was probably the worse episode so far. Cheezy. As usual the guest star has only 5 minutes on screen while Lauren German takes up the whole damn show. I feel that Grace Park is definitely being nudged out of the show by Lauren German. What the hell is the writer thinking? Once Grace is gone for good so am I and I have no doubt 99% of all the other fans too. I can't watch this too much longer. It's painful.
I was extremely disappointed in this episode. I love that Steve and Danny are somewhat together again, but it is so obvious that they are trying to replace Kono with Lori. I am so disgusted with this. There is no comparison in characters or actresses. When Lori was hit on the head, I was hoping she died, but sadly, she stood up. And please don't tell me they are trying to have Steve show feeling for the skank. I am almost done with this show. DVR time.
I understand all the comments people have posted about this being the worst episode. The story line was so garbled, and yes, there were many inconsistencies for Danny. But I liked the episode for one reason - a return to the "bromance" we've all come to know and love. Last season, one of the main staples of the show, and one of the reasons I kept watching was the banter between Steve and Danny. Not an episode would go by without a brilliant scene in the Camaro or Silverado with the two of them sparring. This season, those scenes have been more than disappointing. With the exception of the scene in the season premiere in Max's car, which showed real emotion, the other in-car scenes between the two have been forced, showing out-of-character exchanges, and ultimately never resolve the subjects they were addressing. Tonight's Camaro scene, while addressing a strange, probably out-of-place topic, was a return to the greatness of last season and gave me hope that the writers haven't forg
This was by far the worst Hawaii five 0 show not of this season, not of this new series since September 2010, but including the old Hawaii Five 0 which began in September 1968. I think they were trying to push Kono out, but the outcry and whitewash the show, but outcry from viewers like us brought her back at least for the time being. They are trying not to give Kono too much time, because in the true Hollywood tradition, they believe whiteness sells even if it is shot in a place like Hawaii. So they are giving Lori a lot more role than Kono. Perhaps they are paying her more than Kono too! If they did not think that why did another show on CBS..the Good Wife...portray an Asian guy as the murderer of a white college coed. Have you ever heard of anything like that happening in America? An Asian diplomats son murdering a white college coed...totally devoid of reality, and Hollywood is back showing Asians in an extremely bad light!
Danny was a complete idiot today, I expected more of the father and daughter moments after 6 episodes of absence and his comments were disrespectful. What saved the Danno was the brief moment with Dr. Asano and discover that he spoke with a spirit.
I love Max, he was excellent in The Matrix. And I liked Charlie's coming back.
Kono appeared 2 seconds more this week, but still there isn’t FIVE-0 team. Kono is needed.
The moment that Lori was struck in the head, I was very happy. I dreamed of his death. Wo Fat will put an end to my suffering.
Since the beginning it was classified as highly trained agent who worked in counter-terrorism unit with profiles (Criminal Minds Agent), began career in the kidnapping unit, fight Muay Thai and Jiu-Jitsu and other fabulous things we will be discover of this exceptional agent. However, not showed up this episode and the end was overthrown by an act of distraction. That was my limit. She is sensitive or is the version of Stev
