Hawaii Five-O > Hawaii Five-0 Review: New Year, Same Five-0 > Comments Page 19
Well, if you could get a job and live in Hawaii wouldn't you do just about anything to stay there?
These LOST/Heroes stars just wander from one show to the next "smoking up the atmosphere" with plot holes you could drive a truck thru.
Ah...to be "The Powers that BE"
This is Shelbourn thing is tedious and Steve/Alex looks like a poster child for fat-free diets. Give the man a cookie or a filet mignon.....
I think Lori and Kono were the only good part of last night's episode!
The plot was waaaay too over the place and very thin, but there was one remark from Joe that finally coalesced everything for me: I honestly think Shelbourne is Steve's mother, who is not dead, who is in hiding from the Yakuza. What other secret would Joe go to such great lengths to hide?
And yeah, I am finally tired of trying to like Lori.
Just get rid of Lori. She has no chemistry with anyone and she takes up time that belongs to the other characters. Keep her away from grieving family members. At least the other characters are not forced to verbally acknowledge her "talents" this episode. The last segment without her and with the Core-4 at the computer is what what Five-O is all about. I have to say that Kono is getting more time...love her and Steve working together. They play off of each other so well. The plot of this episode was so convoluted and distasteful that I don't choose to remember much of it. I have to say that I'm just tired of Joe and his keeping secrets from Steve. If he really knows Steve then he should just "man up" and tell him what he has found out. At the point of no return for Shelbourne...either spit it out or move on.
The whole ep was convuluted and dry to me. The actors, except for Grace Park, seemed to be phoning it in last nite- who directed? The storyline was odd- stop putting kids in danger this season. Not enough Danny and Steve moments. And Lori was way too pushy with the high school student. Surprised the dad didn't slap her. Lately, the show has been using weak storylines to string us along on the bigger mystery. But, it needs to give us more worthwhile scripts and dialog to keeping us caring.
Candi, I too have noticed how thin he has gotten. He doesn't look good to me at all. You can really notice it in his face as you watch the show and he hair being that short doesn't help either. It emphasizes it. I am worried about him-not good at all. He needs to stick to acting and not modeling as this is what happens to models. He does not look healthy. As far as Lori goes, I guarantee you CBS and Lenkov were counting on wearing the fans down to the point they just give up and accept her on the show. I for one will never accept her on the show. She's not a good fit.
@candi...I was actually concerned for cutie alex last night. He is getting way too thin. I hope he goes back to the strong bulkier look. I found it distracting a bit. He looked perfect just the way he was in season 1. I mean perfect!!!!LOL!
H50fan99..I am totally with you. It is grating. They are dumming down the show for lori. I mean is there really a radar that can give you a phone number? And why would it be in dannys trunk and he did not know it was there? Another attempt to make her the smart one. I am just over it and sick of even talking about her anymore.
As for the actual episode I was really looking forward to it but I just thought it was okay, not great. They are missing too many components that made the show work. No cargument last night, and I believe there have not been too many of them at all this season. I miss them. Not really much humor if any, it felt a bit dark. I just miss the light hearted feel it used to have. SIGH!
I am hoping they get back to the formula that works for this show, it is getting a bit ho hum. I DO know that many characters from last season are returning and that shelburne is almost over. I am just going to be patient and give them time. I want this show to succeed.
The thud heard around the wold was 50 hitting bottom. I have no idea what this ep was about, they never caught the killer, 250,000 for a hit on a 17 teen year old girl now I'm scared, and they finally arrest some random guy. fortunately I don't watch for the crime of the week, I watch for Kono, Steve, Chin Ho, and Danny. Finally some scenes with Kono and Steve Working together, they had great chemistry last season. Lori no chemistry with anyone in my opinion. I'm concerned that the TPTB are paying no attention to what is going on with the show, how else could they let a script like this be aired. The one thing did get right was no interaction between Lori and Steve, at least they are listening to some of what is being said.
I'm tired of the Shelbourne(Sp? arc too. It's dragged out way to long. I really want this storyline to go away and take Joe and maybe Lori if we are lucky with it. I really tried but Lori is not growing on me and the chemistry that she has with Danny is minimum and I don't think she has chemistry with Kono either. I don't know if it's a stylized choice or what but her flat affect really really grates on me. And for the love of all that is holy can they please stop having her interact with the victims families at least. No empathy whatsoever.
I was looking so forward to this episode, but I was disappointed. They are dragging this out to long. It's as bad as the Wo Fat thing. I still don't like Lori but I gave up on that, which I am sure was what CBS/Lenkov was betting on. I do agree about Steve's hair. Why are they keeping it sooo short. I don't like it. Also, he is awfully thing now a days. (Especially for real). Why?
I think Lori and Kono make a pretty good team. Women work well with women, know what each other is going through, they have good chemistry together!
Technically if he wasn't under arrest he was free to leave at any time. They always say you're being held for questioning but unless they formally charge you then by law you're allowed to leave. If they say no you can't then lawyer up immediately!!
Show was lame. Over Shelburne. Joe is obviously channeling his character from Lost. I stopped watching him after awhile too.....
Great comments this AM, totally agree with all of you. @Walter, I thought the same thing "pay the worker the $250g you paid the assassin and you have no reason to kill the girl, everyone goes away happy". @Minah & HFO with ya about Joe for sure. Shelburne better be someone pretty important since they've been stringing us along so far. And Lori wasn't annoying in this episode,I didn't think. Could she be growing on me? Nah I think she worked well with Kono and has pretty good chemistry with Dan too (now that she's not handcuffed to him).
I wish Steve would stop blowing Adam off and tell him he'll help him find his dad. You'd think Steve of all people would get where he's coming from. Evil or not, the guy is still Adam's dad.
And WHAT are they doing with Steve's hair? He had a "Pee-Wee" Herman type point in it thru half the show. Very distracting.
This all said, I was glad to have a new episode
One Star. The worst episode of the season. Thia Shelburne/Wo Fat/Yakuza story arc better have one heck of a finish. It's dragging right now. Can someone explain the plot of this week's case? Bad Chinese steel? If they wanted him off the jury, why not just run him off the road or mug him? Why not just pay off the injured worker with a big settlement with a confidentiality clause? Finally I could possibly understand Steve and Danno's actions if was to prevent another 9-11 type incident but to tear up the Constitution for a single homicide. NO!
@minah, well said. they better wrap this up episode 14. I generally hate Lori, but her working with Kono takes some of that annoyance out of her. and her line when that kid ran was pretty funny
@HFO i agree with you, Joe is starting to get on my nerves. I mean how many times does Steve have to confront him to get answers that he needs and he just saved Joe's life so that should've counted for something.
And this shelburne thing is getting old now, they've got this thing going on for a while know and its getting nowhere..
But the case was good, i liked it but i thought the ending was a bit crap considering they didnt even show the girls father or tell him a bit more or anything.
It was cool seeing Kono and Lori working and getting along with each other and kono did get a fair bit of attention in this one so lets hope they atleast keep that up!
Joe is getting too annoying now, not giving away anything for this "shelburne" person. i mean how important is this person that joe would give his life away for. losing patience with this, but otherwise, alot of kono today, which was a plus, and lori wasnt too annoying either
