Hawaii Five-O > Hawaii Five-0 Review: New Year, Same Five-0 > Comments Page 10
@ Lena......I hope we don't have to wait until next season and they give us something this season. I know the Wofat story line won't end this season, but I was hoping for more info this season, and I don't mean one liners at the end of the show for the next 20-30 episodes. I guess we are at their mercy.
@ Martinelli....sounds good to me. I like Deeks, but I don't see NCIS LA seeing that as a fair trade.
Maybe we can ship Lori out to NCIS LA, she could be Hetty's assistant or work with Eric, lol. What do you think? We can bring Deeks over :)
Maybe Granger ask Kensi to stay away from Hawaii because she came to close just like Steve to find the reason why their fathers are killed and maybe Joe works undercover for NCIS now and that this story line will continue in both shows next season and that the producers safe this SL for a AMAZING! Cross-Over They have my vote to do it!
Pure speculation on my part but I think Kensi father and Steve's father were friends and also of Joe they served together Steve/Kensi father are killed and I think Joe knows why they were killed by Wo-Fat we also know that Steve and Sam know each other they served together in the Navy.
CBS wanted to show a little cross-over this season to see how the response was from the fans if my information is correct next season we will get a bigger one where both cast will appear in each show! I so hope this will happens!
@ Jim - According to my poll, people do like Lori. She has 19% already :). This is the highest score so far.
@Zia - Let me speculate on this. Remember when Kensi first showed up in H50? Joe asked her to fly over to lip read the material they got. At least that's what we knew at the time but as it turns out, it's been more. It's been something about her father too and Joe hasn't told Steve.
Joe pisses me off. He became the key of the whole show. This is not good at all.
The other thing I don't like: almost each and every cop show is about a cop/detective/special agent (whatever) trying to find out who killed his/her mother or/and father and why.
Look at the list:
- McGarrett - H50 - father/mother killed
- Kensi Blye - NCIS LA - father killed
- G. Callan - NCIS LA - mother killed
- Kate Beckett - Castle - mother killed
It could be more but I'm not watching every show.
@ Jim......Hey, what's your take on this. Have you watched NCIS LA? Do you think there could be some connection with the Wofat/Shelburne story?
P.S......this is something other then the Lori, or he's cuter then him comments. I hope you are still checking into your site.
@Martinelli.....Granger is out to get Hetty for sure on NCIS LA, but why he is concerned with Kensi's Hawaii trips really makes me wonder about a connection with the Wo-fat/Shelburne story line with H50. I hope it does, I really would like to see a crossover, but this time for more then 3 minutes. Maybe that meeting with Joe and Steve was the set up for something bigger between the 2 shows. If they are, then they are doing a great job at keeping it quiet. Now I'm more anxious to see this episode, I hope they give us a little more then the last minute of the program with this.
I don't think anything could make me like Lori at this stage and I think that's down to the actress as much as the writing. She delivers every line in the same monotonous way. I just find her incredibly boring and bland and even if the writing was better I don't think it would change my opinion on the character or the actress. Adam Noshimori has been more intesting in the few scenes he's been in than the whole 11 episodes that Lori has been in. The actor has charisma and screen presence, something that Lauren is sorely lacking in.
@Zia - I know Kensi once told Hetty (or Nate?) that his father died but unfortunately don't remember any details. She was 15. Recently I deleted all NCIS LA episodes from my pc so now I can't even look it up. I'm a smart girl, aren't I?
What does Granger have to do with Kensi going to Hawaii? Why is that bothering him? Hetty has never told her anything, and you know Hetty knows everything. Director Vance must have known as well.
Oh God! Instead of getting answers, we got a bunch of new questions.
Ok, let's say Shelburn is Kensi's father, he's alive and well somewhere, but then comes the question: what does he have to do with McG Senior, Wo Fat, Noshimori, the Yakuza etc.?
@Martinelli......Yes I did see NCIS LA, I believe Lena had mentioned it also.
I would not mind another cross over either way. She had more then one trip to Hawaii, although H50 only showed one. Maybe they are planning a connection, that would be interesting. Kensi's father and McG's father connected. We know Shelburne will be revealed on 2.14, could it be that Shelburne is Kensi's father? Even though this is dragging on too long, I do like that they are keeping us guessing about who it is. Maybe that is why they did not publish any of the guess star's for that episode. Now I'm more impatient. Thanks for letting us know.
@martinelli..I have never watched NCIS, LA but I may have to now. I thought the only crossover of the two shows were the two minutes we got on H50. Hmmm I will see if I can catch it on YTube and get back to you.
*What does Kensi's father have to do with H50?
Sorry for my poor English.
Has anyone seen the new episode of NCIS LA? I just finished watching it and strange things are happening there. Kensi's visit to Hawaii came up more than once and at the end she was told to stay out of Hawaii.
For those who are not familiar with NCIS LA: Kensi's father was killed and she tries to find out who did it and why.
Now I have the felling that the two murder cases could be connected.
This is a piece of the review Carla Day gave us at TV Fanatic:
"Why does Granger care about Kensi's recent trips to Hawaii? If you don't watch Hawaii 5-0, this reference won't mean nearly as much. But, on at least one of her trips she met with Steve and Joe to lip read a conversation between Steve's father and a Hawaiian crime lord."

What is going on here? What does Kensi's father has to do with H50? Joe has something to do with this, that's for sure!
@Jim...Cookies won't work for me, Konos little red Chevy might. Seriously, I appreciate your honest reviews even when I disagree. I don't look at other sites normally, but did see one yesterday that gave this ep a 10. My guess they give every ep a 10 whether they watch it or not. Keep up the good work. LOL.
@Zia.. I have come to the conclusion that it is the actress not the character. Not everyone is suited for all roles. An actress who openly acknowledges that she cannot run or do action scenes is clearly the wrong choice for an ACTION show! I will stand by that this is one of the worst cast characters in history.
At the point that she was hired H50 was a hit, they should have got someone with more experience. I am sure there were more then 4 actresses who wanted that role! I would think that was a coveted role.
@Jim..it really was hilarious. A little eye opening as well, LOL.
But sadly cookies will not covert the lori haters. At least it would not work on me, I am off carbs!! :):)
@amazingalex -- thanks, I'm glad to know someone got a giggle out of it. And, I know I'm not really shunned by both sides, but I threw it in there for comedic effect..
@Jeffrey Sean Keith -- Hey, I've been the head of the "I Luv Lori" club for a while now, just check my reviews! hehehe glad I'm not alone anymore.. maybe if we offered cookies we could recruit a few more.
@Azziria and Nadriss.......I agree totally. If this character was presented as an antagonist towards five-o as her first episode suggested and she was not in as many scenes as Steve, while pushing aside the remaining 3 members of the team, then maybe the character would have been accepted. The actress however has not showed that she can play this character which is another problem. We all had an open mind when Lori was introduced, but it quickly changed, as it took her 11 episodes before she showed any sense of empathy and true emotion. (and I don't mean running up to McG during a rescue, that was just stupid).
@Jeffrey.....you have the right to your opinion and your right to express.
Since most on this website don't agree, maybe you can tell us your opinions on another character or subject of H50. We know how you feel about Lori.
@Jim..you made me LMAO!! Your quick review of the last 200 posts was hilarious. You had it summized perfectly. All someone has to do to catch up is read your post, and keep them from having to read 10 pages of posts. And yes popular posts are AOL is HOT, lets not forget that, LOL!
Although I have to disagree that you are not liked by either side of the fence... lori fans or non lori fans. I like your posts despite the fact that you like lori and as we all know here I cannot stand her. Cannot stand her!!! Twice for empasis!! :)
I think Lori's character would have been more interesting if it was just not always agree with the team, it was imposed by the governor, it must necessarily follow the laws to the letter and not be in complete agreement with the actions of H50. It would have been really interesting to see to conflict with other, mainly with Steve. Then little by little to see fully integrated methods of H5-0: gain the confidence of the team and even if that means she must return to conflict directly with the Governor. What is missing is the spice .... You know what I mean ...
I agree completely what was said Azziria, which damn up the character of Lori that it was presented as a love interest for Steve, super perfect woman .... so far I saw nothing, apart from it is true she is pretty ...
Unfortunately, poorly written character
Sorry for my bad english
*azziria - sorry
@azzira - I couldn't agree more.
As for Chin's introduction in S2 - would it have been as poorly-handled as Lori's was? Because that would have caused resentment. However, Daniel Dae Kim is a strong enough actor that I think he would have done far better with what he was given in the scripts than Lauren has, which would probably have made a difference. Plus there wouldn't have been any of the unfortunate business about him being touted as Steve's love interest before we ever got to see him, which definitely didn't help the Lori character.
My problem is with Lori's lack of character, the way she's being presented as perfect, and how woodenly she's being acted, not with her being female (I'd love another strong, believable female character in the show). Speaking for myself, if Chin had been introduced in S2 and had been as badly-written and poorly-acted as Lori has been, I'd want him go
That's an interesting question, Jeffrey.
I think that if Lori had been in the team from the start then the writers would have given her a much more convincing background and more character development - if you think back to the pilot, we pretty much knew who the Core 4 were, what their motivations were, and where they were coming from by the end of the first episode. We *knew* them (and therefore cared about them) right from the off. So if Lori had been part of the team then, she'd have had a much better start because the fans would have known her.
Whether or not she became as beloved as the others would then have depended on her character development and the skill of the actress. I can believe that we might have had more character development in Season 1, which would have helped; however I personally don't think that Lauren's acting skills would have been any different, so I think the character would still have compared badly with the others.
