@kaydee..your welcome sweetie.:) I thought this was a great update for us fans. I give her alot of credit for giving him his distance especially while with his son. Good for her. And I am so happy she shared this with us fans.
I am so happy for alex that he is recovering. And I am happy for his son as well.
@kaydee.. I really liked that they had AOL do the voiceover for his dear danno letter and even though it was not new footage I loved that they showed him in the end in japan. I thought that was a great way of giving us some alex while he was away. I know it made me smile. It showed me how thoughtful the writers are of his fans. I mean we know he was not there but to see him in the epi personally for me made the episode complete.
I thought max was excellent as well. Bravo to them all for getting through a difficult situation and making it work for the fans.
Thanks for sharing that great news amazingalex! So happy to hear that (and even happier that the fan kept their distance and "admired him from afar")!!
I like this site because people express opinions, sometimes strong opinions, I like that. I don't go to other sites often, but on some it seems as tho everyone is a clone and no one expresses their own opinion.
Danny is what Danny is and it wouldn't work any other way. I love him - he's sarcastic and annoying and the perfect foil for Steve, Chin and Kono. That's why they work so well together. @Zia when I said his body language screamed something else, I should have said he was very frustrated. He was upset and worried about Steve. He had to handle Max - who isn't always the easiest person to deal with - and the upset mother. Even Kamekono wanted something! The episode was a good one, just less intense than we're used to. Max was excellent and while I miss Alex a whole lot, I'm happy the others were able to share the spotlight for a change. The writers did an excellent job with the time frame they were given. Kudos all around to the cast and writers.
@martinelli...You got me here.:)
A fan posted this on twitter. I thought it was so nice to know alex is doing good :
"So I ran into Alex tonight at Wholefoods, because apparently whenever I see him around town its at the grocery store. Anyways I just wanted everyone to know that he’s looking really good and a lot healthier then he’s been on the show. I didn’t go up to him because he was there with Saxon it looked like they were getting dinner, so I just admired from afar. I just wanted to share that he was looking a lot better I wish I could have got a picture, but alas the iPhone is not the most subtle of phones.."
So it sounds as though he is doing well and that is all we fans needed to know.
@Amazingalex - I agree with you.
It's impossible to agree all the time with everyone, that's true. Sometimes we agree on things and other times we disagree. That does not mean we can tell what we like/dislike or feel.
I have to admit that it's not fun to comment here any more. Unfortunately not everyone knows what tolerance mean.
Not everyone on the board is going to agree on every little detail of the show. That is what is nice about a forum. You get differing opinions and the viewers all might catch different things. We should celebrate the fact that we are able to say our opinions without feeling like we might get attacked. It is just a tv show. I normally love all four of the cast. I only disliked some things about danny in this one episode but I will go back to liking him again in the next episode.
I think that 99% of us all can agree that alex is the lead for a reason. The episode was good it just did not have steve and that affected the feel of it. He is back now so we get our whole team together again. All the fans can enjoy the new episodes coming up. I personally cannot wait.
I really enjoyed the episode and specially Max. I hope in the next season, we’ll know more about him. As much, I would prefer to see Chin in leader than Danny. It’s true Danny missed a little tact with Max, but I think he really was perturb by steve’s absence .
Now the show without Steve is like an apple pie without apple :) I mean the real show it’s Steve, Danny, Chin, Kono, and if any of these characters is missing, the dynamic becomes a little weak. I remember the beginning of this season, when Kono wasn’t in the team, for me it was weird and I didn’t like it at least until it rejoins the team (for Lori it’s another story ;))
Sorry for my poor english :)
No one can ever replace Steve/Alex in this show. I think 95% of the people agree with that. With that said, the Danny bashing is unnecessary. Yes you are entitled to your opinion, but at least come up with something new. Danny has rubbed off on Steve, and Steve has rubbed off on Danny over the last 40 plus episodes. The show would fall with any extended absence of McGarrett, but could you see it last long without a Danny, Chin, or Kono?
The core 4 is here to stay as it should be, and please don't compare the Lori situation with Danny.
I agree with Zia. Danny is what he is suppose to be. Yes of course, there would be no show without McGarrett, but the other 3 characters are just as important. Scott's Danny was fine as the lead in the absence of McGarrett, would Chin do a good job also, yes. But neither of them can replace a Steve McGarrett played so well by Alex. Give Danny a break, he is what he is, and thats what plays off of McGarrett so well. Is that not what most people like, the carguments/bromance? If Danny was any other way do you really think that would work as well? People need to make up their minds, do you want the carguments and friendship, or do you want Danny to be robot and say yes sir Mr. McGarrett sir.
continued......seemed like a more natural fit as the leader of the Five O team in Mcgarrett's absence.
I thought the episode felt a bit disjointed, but that's to be expected when the lead character is absent. I'm sure they had to scramble to come up with the concept for this episode, so kudos for the writers, producers and actors for pulling together and pulling it off.
Obviously, there's a reason why Alex O was cast in the lead role as Mcgarrett. As I said months ago, when everyone was complaining about Lauren German, any Hawaii Five O show--whether it's the current show or the original--will always be about the character of Steve Mcgarrett. All of the other cast members, no matter how much they are loved, are there in support roles.
The current show does a much better job of fleshing out the other characters than the original, by far, but without Mcgarrett, there can be no Five O.
Speaking of fleshing out characters, they did an awesome job of letting inside the mind of Max, and he did a great job of carrying the episode.
And I agree with someone else, I thought Chin Ho
People are entitled to their opinions without others needing to jump in and tell them how to feel. I'm sure those that disliked Lori would never be convinced otherwise.
I didn't enjoy the show without Steve because for me he is H50. I didn't feel like this last year but this season he's the only one that keeps me watching. He sets the tone and and seems to bring an energy to the show that was lacking in Mondays episode. The others just don't engage me the way Steve does. The performances were flat and I've liked Danny less and less as the season progessed. I find him condensending and annnoying. Kono and Chin have had so little to do that I'm loosing interest in their characters. Danny is not leadership material and Scott can't carry a show. I'd much prefer if they had given the leadership role to Chin, in fact I wish they would just give Chin anything decent to do.
@Mrs. Cleaver.......thank you. I could not remember the line Danny used in describing himself to Chin on how worried he was that Steve left on his own.
I guess that's not compassionate enough for some people.
"Nervous as the father of a cheerleader on Prom Night" that line from Danno cracked me up. Also showed how he missed Steve and worried about him-sweet. I missed him alot too, AOL has a ton of charisma and the show felt a little flat without him.
That said, I thought it was a solid episode. Loved learning more about Max (and agree with all who said his being less quirky was a good thing - makes him more relate-able)and his background. Great to see Chin and Danny work together, I thought Kono could have been in it a little more than she was.
You know "she who shall not be named" woulda been with Danny questioning the mother, so they should have sent Kono along with him. Kono and Dan have a great chemistry when they work together.
Definitely not looking forward to another week (or is it two?) of re-runs before some new epi's come out.
Steve was missed, but if you did not like the episode, it was not because any of the other characters did not do an excellent job in his absence. As I said before Alex is the lead and there is not a show without him, but for 2 episodes I think they will do just fine. Last night was very entertaining, loved Max.
Scott plays a great Danny. People who keep harping on the character because in their opinion he is harsh, don't seem to understand, that is what his role is, the sarcastic, one liner, best buddy to Steve, compassionate father, and loyal friend to all. Tell me this is not what he portrays. He was the one worried about Steve, he kept calling, but Steve won't pick up, he was the same worrier in episode 2.10. His sarcasm is what makes the character, but his compassion not only with children but with all people shows through. I don't understand the body language comment. He showed compassion for a woman who's daughter was just killed, how could anyone not see that he felt for her, putting himself in her place with his own daughter. Remember Grace was kidnapped. I hope they never change what the Danny character is, its perfect for the show and a great actor protrays him perfectly.
@lena and martinelli...alright girls I am watching ncis la right now so I understand the crossover a little better. I will have lots of questions for you in the morning!! Get ready. :)
@kaydee.. that is a really good point about danny, he really is fantastic in scenes with kids, I love when he is with gracie.
I thought max was fantastic, it was so nice to see the dramatic side to him. If anyone really got to shine last night it was him.
Danny comes across as a hard nose which he is most times but so does Steve sometimes. I think he was very good in last nights episode but feel Chin is a better leader, calmer, more rational. Danny always shines when kids are involved, that's when he's at his best, whether it's with Gracie or other child/teen guest stars. He's acerbic and sarcastic. I'm sure he was worried about Steve and while his face showed sympathy to the distraught mother, his body-language screamed something else and that's where the negativity comes from. When Steve is around they balance each other out.. The way Chin and Kono do. @DeAnn Max's character is portrayed perfectly by Masi since Max suffers from ADHD and savant personality disorders. As for your not liking Grace's portrayal of Kono, to each their own. Each character brings something different and unique to the show. Like everyone else, I'm very happy Alex will be back soon but I'm loving watching the others strut their stuff!!
Alex,take all the time u need but I will definitly miss seeing your fine, sexy ass &wishing u the best & a quick return. Lots of love! Be cool
I actually agree that it was nice that the others got to come out and play more then usual. But I am ready for alex to be back in the last two episodes. The four of them together is where it is at. Plus alex's energy is contagious!
I thought Scott as Danny was wonderful in the latest episode. His take charge attitude was exactly what was needed in both the absence of Steve and Alex. And I really enjoyed his facial expression and wit.I missed Steve, but not to the point that watching the show was spoilt for me. It was good to see the other main cast members get more screen time,and rock their roles! Well done guys!'Hugs'
