Hawaii Five-O > Hawaii Five-0 Review: Out of the Dog House > Comments Page 3
I'm truly sadden by the lack of love for my heart-throb Lori... hehehe
Some great comments and reasoning though, so I can't fault you guys for sharing.. I asked!
Great episode. I agree with the review. Lori doesn't add much to the series but she's not terrible.
Though this episode was better, the team is still too disjointed for my liking. Still too much Lori (what is this, The Lori Show, a Hawaii 5-0 spinoff? jeez) - taking lines and scenes from everyone else except Steve.
Also still feel like writers spend too much time lumping the Asian actors together in the minor scenes. Season 1 was more about the entire 4 teammates working together - which was what I fell in love with about the show.
Someone should start a petition to CBS to get Lenkov removed as well. He's the biggest problem in my opinion. Any other producer/writer would have 1)not hired her or 2)got rid of her by now, they do film quite a bit ahead. I actually dvr the show now and just watched last nights. It was ok. Last season was way better. Not sure how this is going to play out as far as a Season 3.
Get rid of Lori and bring back RACHEL! Lori is AWFUL!
This episode was better than the last few (especially last weeks). It was great seeing the interaction between the regulars. Love the dog, wish he could replace the blonde.
Now to the blonde - you ask what it would take to like her. A personality, a purpose, acting skills of any kind. When she's on screen she sucks the life out of everything and everyone around her. She has one emotion - nothing/blank - my walls have more charisma than her. She's been shoved down our throats needlessly. I'm hoping that she's not brought back after her 12 episodes. That she'll be killed off, sent away, anything but back in Hawaii 5-0 (btw the 5 in 5-0 has nothing to do with the amount of team members). Truthfully she's only half the blame, the writers aren't doing a good job either so far this season. I love the show but I'd hate to see it cancelled because of shoddy performances and poor writing. I hope CBS wakes up and listens to the viewers.
I loved last nights show! Some really funny scenes and loved that we got to see more of Kono and Chin. But I still cringe when Lori is in a scene. She has no facial expressions and some of her lines are just sarcastic--not even funny sarcastic. She adds nothing to the show and her scenes are so forced, like they had to make something up just so she could appear in the scene. Her character makes no sense and she steals time away from the 4 great actors that started the show. After watching next weeks preview I don't know if I can sit through Lori undercover! Writers, please, you are ruining a great show! Get rid of Lori before there is no Season 3!
Good episode with the interplay between the team members. Too bad we didn't get to see who had to clean Steve's office. As for the "Lori Situation" if she's there for 12 episodes, I assume she ends up as a Wo Fat victim, which could send Steve over the edge as we head toward the season's end. My only complaint the writers need to be more realistic in the plot of the week. I know its TV and don't mind the techno errors- the Cessna Cardinal like all general aviation aircraft does not have a flight data recorder but I have known someone with terminal pancreatic cancer and people in this condition don't jump out of airplanes into a wilderness and ride a motorcycle out or haul a dead body into the cockpit of an aircraft and knock someone else out and carry off their body to a container also located in the boonies. Have a friend pretend to be unconscious and try lugging their body around. Not easy even if you are healthy.
I agree with you Inge. AND neither Alex O nor H50 made it on the People's Choice Awards either. I have to say I did vote for them but obviously the majority did not! That makes a huge statement. I feel the ratings are going to stay between 9.75 to 10.7 all season. Hope that's good enough for CBS since they don't want to listen to the fans.:)
Looking at the ratings today and the were down again under the 10 million thats not a good sig.
So please CBS and producers can we move Robocop Lori back to the mainland PLEASE!!!!
I'm affraid that my favorite show don't get a third season. if Lori stay's any longer on this show and I would feel bad for Alex O'Loughlin because he finally had a HIT TV Show!!!!!
I don't think there is anything that would make me accept Lori on the show. I never had a problem with Jenna. She was a side character who didn't take away from the rest of the cast and the chemistry they have. The whole story line with Lori Weston has been poorly written and I cringe every time she is on the screen.
That being said, last night's episode was the second best this season, the best being the first one. I LOVED the first season, but have been extremely disappointed in the creators/writers this season as they have been slaughtering what was a terrific show. Next week's preview doesn't look any better as it appears we are getting Lori shoved down our throats once again. I don't have anything against the actress, but I have big problems with her character, the character's purpose on the show, and the powers that be who have been ruining what made this show a pleasure to watch!
I thought I was starting to like Lori, but after last night's episode not so much. She was just around too much, and Kono and even Chin weren't as prominent. I really need her to leave.
Don't like Lori but other than that great episode.
If Lori hadn't been in last night's show, I would have liked it - and loved the scenes with Danny/Steve/dog/Max/car/Kono/Chin. And PLEASE - this is not a question of not liking Lauren German - I have no idea what she's like as a person - but she's not a good actress (watch her YouTube exposure = same in every scene) and the character is badly conceived and written. Lori Weston is simply not needed. What more does one have to say?
Watch the other "team" shows on CBS and see the difference. Every scene that she's in is painful to watch.
SORRY!!!! But I can't stan DANNY NAGGING!!!!
I agree with almost everything that you have said. What would it take to like Lori? A purpose. She was introduced as a snitch for the Governor, so where is the snitching? I would have loved to see this charcater as an antagonist for the team. The banter would have been great. Instead we have a know it all, homeland security, FBI, and now ICE agent that is a profiler and martial arts expert.Make the character more realistic and teach the actress some facial expressions. It is not Lauren's fault. She was poorly introduced and her character has no specific direction. Resolve this and then maybe we'll like her. Overall, this was a great episode.
I also enjoyed this episode a lot, thought was pretty nice too to see Grunberg and Oka together again, I like German's character Lori, I think she got way better since she first was presented to us, I am sure we will see more through out the season, she was added to Five-0 by the Governor and I expect to see a story developing in that matter.
Lori Weston will meet Chin Ho Kelly's girlfriend, Dr. Malia Weston and they will find out that they are long lost cousins. At least until that happens Lori Weston will stick around!
"The girl has one tone of voice and show no expression whatsoever. When she´s sad, happy or pissed of her face looks the same."
You have described another person in another show..his name is Kimbal Cho of the Mentalist. However, if you go to the Mentalist blog people have no problem with it. For some reason it is expected of Asian guys to be either goofballs, nerds of asexual/serious without any emotion or romantic feelings. However, if a white woman is like Kimbal Cho, it is not acceptable, because a white female has to smile all the time, look pretty and romantic. A white woman who is another Kimbal Cho is unacceptable for the audience. I see some stereotypes here!
I throughly enjoyed this episode. Steve and Danny were very funny in the TV and Car scenes. Kono and Chin actually got some scenes. The guest star was there for more then 3 minutes. Max was very good, loved the car. I had a good feeling after this show that they won't spoil it, so we can have a season 3.
As for Lori, the fact that she was not attached to Steve's hip was good. She did not take up all the scenes and the show flowed much better. As far as liking her, the jury is still out. If the writers make her part of the team after the 12 episodes she is contracted for, then I hope they do what they did last night, no hooking up with Steve and do not put her in every scene and forget the other actors that made the show in the first season.
Then maybe I would come to like her, but its going to take a lot more episodes. Steve needs a woman in his life, but not Lori and not a team member.
As for the Lori lovers, I agree on one thing that people were getting a little too
"Kono and Fong would be so dam cuteeeeee, but i was always hoping for Kono and McG."
We are dealing with America here...if the latter happens, the ratings will fall!
Maybe, just maybe, the powers that be on this show got the peoples message. Still don't have it like the old show but Steve Danny partners is one thing that makes this show.
Yep. Right balance and great episode and more rough and tumble than the nonsense they showed on Halloween. Did you notice one thing...they were pairing Chin Ho Kelly and Lori Weston together...nope not what you are thinking...it involves Chin Ho's girlfriend Dr. Malia Weston. Eventually the two Westons will meet and they will find out that they are long lost cousins.
I have always liked Lori, because I have been a fan of Lauren German. I agree they introduced this character one way and then didn't really follow through on the development of her in that vein. But I think she's doing a good job playing what they've given her. Plus my husband thinks she's hot, so works for our household. I do think it's amusing to see how those who critique her are acting rather defensive now, because they have also been critiqued by a poster here today. Kinda stings to have someone question you, doesn't it? So think how Lauren might feel. Only she has been criticized in a far meaner manner. I support her, and all the actors in the show. I'm a fan.
For me, the Lori character still has no personality and no unique skill set to add to the team, to say nothing of the fact that the actress has unfortunately been mis-cast and isn't convincing me of her abilities in this role. She's still coming across as very wooden to me. If she was at all better last night it was because she had less of the emotional/personal relationship stuff to do.
I don't think they can do anything now to convert me into a Lori-liker. Even if the actress suddenly improved hugely and the character had a wonderfully interesting storyline written for her, the memory of the past episodes and of how she introduced and portrayed as being wonderful at everything would still loom too large in my mind. It's too late, they've taken too long to establish her character (they still haven't, for me) and they've spent too many episodes not really knowing what to do with her. In my opinion it's time for them to cut their losses and write Lori out.
