Hawaii Five-O > Hawaii Five-0 Review: Off And Running > Comments Page 3
Well if you think Wu Fat will go away keep waiting ,if the character is based after the original show from the 70's he will be there to the very end.Think Mama M Garrett might be a little dirty with a couple skeletons in her closet ,not sure about the whole maybe Wu Fat is her son,something more to it ,that would be to predictable. Thought, it sucked for Chin but he got his revenge.Over all thought it was a good show ,can't wait to see what's in store
CONTINUED>>>>> I thought DDK was excellent, he finally has a meaty part. I loved it when he shot Delano, although I'm sure there will be some payment for that. It was heart breaking to see him come home to find the chickens in the oven. Sorry Malia is gone, but it does give him a great story line. Not enough of Kono, although I loved it when she jumped on the car, and shot Toothpick through the windshield. I'm glad Adam was there to save her. Still like this relationship, although I'm sure there will be some complications. It's definitely more interesting then Kono/Fong.
I thought it was a great episode. I'll worry about the ratings once we have a few episodes in. I think it will pick up. I thought the helicopter bit was over the top, although I did laugh at it. I also laughed when I saw it in a Bond movie. I didn't care for the Boo Boo comment.
Catherine was great. I'm glad to see them show her as kick ass, for real, not just say it and not show it. I like Christine Lahti's portrayal of Doris. I think she played it just right. I'm not happy with Doris, I think she could have handled things better. Also, they had Steve say his father was looking for Doris' killer for 20 years which we knew before, but what I don't understand is why would she tell Joe White and not her husband. I like the what the character brings to the show, but right now not liking her much. I loved that Danny did not trust her. The cargument was good, but where does she come off telling Danny how to conduct relationships? I truly hope Wofat is not Steve's 1/2 brother,
I'm glad Chin shot Delano. He got just what he deserved. I didn't like it they let Chin's wife die. Why can they not let anybody on TV be married ? They could let them have a happy home life and still have good crime stories. I want Danny's ex wife's baby to get sick and them find out the baby is really Danny's. I want them to get back together. He is such a great dad . They have made a big point of that so why write them out of the story ? Doesn't make any sense to me. I also believe Wo-Fat is Steve's half brother. I thought that the minute he walked into that room and they looked at each other. Also instead of sending Steve's mother out of the country why not send her to her daughters ?
Can't say I'm happy with the way the show is going.
It had many great twists and turns during S1 & S2,but now it seems to be losing its way.
For one thing,there is a price to be paid for simply arresting Wo Fat.
This is the Al Capone of the Islands.He could still run his little empire from his jail cell.
Here's something to ponder.....
WHAT OF MCGARRETT'S MOM IS BEING USED BY WO FAT TO MAINPULATE HIM??
Something to ponder this season,once we get past this bogus soap opera.
I liked the episode other than having Chin-Ho's wife being killed didnt really like that.
I also thought as others wrote that the reason McG's mom didnt shoot Wu Fat is because he is her son. It makes sense that the reason they brought her out of retirement was because she had an intimate relationship with Wu Fat undercover before she got married. So she was the best person to do whatever they needed done. Her character Doris did say her undercover thing was complicated. This scenario fits complicated like a glove.
I blame the low ratings cmpletely on shelburne and I hope they finnish it before it's to late. Unfortunatly they have put themselfs in a position where the only way to do that is to kill Steves mom for real this time, but it's their own fault.
George: What is with all the racial comments. I think you are being ridiculous!!
I agree about that big claw problem. Ridiculous. Seriously, if you're driving down the highway and some helicopter with a giant claw is above you, aren't you going to be able to hit the brakes, swerve or do anything to avoid it? Not to mention, these guys were police vehicles.
Very disappointed with the show. I want my S1 show back. The show where Steve knows everything and is super seal. He had 0 action scenes last night. The McG I know would have realized that there was something fishy during the "shoot out" between his mom and Wo Fat. He had to wait for the ballistics to realize that? Whoever is writing the character of Steve needs to be fired. And btw, put the tie back on Danno. And get rid of all this soap opera crap.
Did anyone notice the ratings just were just awful for what was a pretty big premiere that had been well-hyped? I also thought the show was predictable and wasn't surprised about anything, except the use of the ridiculous, over-the-top claw thing. Overall, though, it was fun to watch and I'm surprised about the very low ratings.
It was as predictable as I expected. Moma McG was awful. Steve got over what she put everyone through far too quickly. Why did no one bother to tell Mary. The writers have no idea what to do with Danny except give him stupid carguments. I've no interest in his character anymore. The booboo comment was pathetic. I could never see Steve saying this.
I didn't mind the over the top action. Other than that there was no substance. DDK was great but Malia didnt get enough screentime for me to feel upset at her death. Why do our guys keep taking the law into their own hands.
Adam was great and I'm beginning to find the Adam/Kono relationship the most believeable of the show.
Episode was amazing.
To those whining about Catherine as a regular having her on the show may not be so bad. Still unsure about her joining the Five-0 team but with her around Steve is more casual as Catherine humanizes him. Also Chin was very frightening in the episode especially when he killed Delano, I had no idea that kind-hearted Kelly could be so dark.
About Doris and Wo Fat:
1. How come Doris missed him?
2. Much more intriguing, how come Wo Fat didn't shoot a single time?
So obviously, none of them wanted to hurt the other. Two theories:
1. Wo Fat is Doris's son, but until then no one knew who the other was. Possible.
2. There's a completely different explanation, and - among other people - the former governor knew or found out. One thing is sure, her former assistant knew and both were killed for it. Wo Fat is now blackmailing Doris for some nefarious goal.
Can we think of other possibilities?
I think Shelburne was finished when Joe told Steve it was him. IMO they needed a story line to deal with Steves absence and brought it back.
I'm seeing a lot of comments about Wo-Fat being Doris' son... Did I miss some dialog in the episode or is this conjecture? I'm ok with conjecture, I just want to make sure we are all on the same page. :)
I do agree that the claw escape was a little over the top especially since not a single one of the cops got out of their cars and started shooting. that is what we would expect. As far as McGarret's mom is concerned I knew something was up when Wo Fat burst in and stopped and just gave that look. then he mysteriously escapes. yeah something up there. I do agree that they need to wrap up this story arc. at least with my other shows I like they have an arc and it last for about three quarters of a season ending in the premiere of the new season then they move on to something else. granted things get brought up again with some new background info but the villain is usually killed or jailed and they have to come up with a new villain. having the same villain constantly getting away is getting old. I think that might be part of the reason people are not watching anymore. once they got the hint it was going in that direction. I hope they can spice it up a little more.
Wo Fat is Doris's son!
Well, it looks like H50 has another problem to contend with as it's ratings for last night were down right awful. NBC Revolution 3.5 (18-49 Demo) 9.29 (Million Viewers); ABC Castle 2.5 (18-49 Demo) 11.38 (Million Viewers; CBS Hawaii Five-0 1.9 (18-49 Demo) 7.97 (Million Viewers. Just for perspective here are H50's Season 1 and Season 2 premiere numbers. Season 1 - 3.9 (18-49 Demo) 14.199 (Million Viewers; Season 2 - 3.4 (18-49 Demo) 12.19 (Million Viewers.All I can say is they better remember ASAP what worked for them in Season 1 and get back to it, or I am afraid this just might the last season for them.
@steph-a-nie: completely agree.
I am glad that we will (hopefully) be getting a break from the Wo Fat and Shelburne plot...it's so bizarre!! I'm sure that we will find out that Wo fat and Steve are brothers...and I don't care. Let's get back to the exciting first season and most of second season formula that made the show so great!!
I would really love this program if Danny and Steveidnt bicker so much. Its like a married couple of 35 years. It can be so annoying it detracts from the program's story line. Please less bickering, more co operation.
Kono safed by Adam was what we all expected who else could Chin have called to safe Kono.
Max recovery was very quick afterall we started this season a few sec. after where we left in season 2.
Danny had not much to do this episode only to complain about the costudy what we got to see in a cargument the best part for me in that cargument was that Uncle Steve thought about what this battle between Danny and Rachel means for Gracie.
All in all a excellent start of this season with only two complains from me.
1)The escape from Wo-Fat by helicopter I found that ridiculous why didn’t the police cars stop and shoot on the chopper .
2)Why nobody ask if Kono was okay afterall she almost drowned. Just like last year when Kono was undercover no words from Steve or Danny to Kono.
I wasn't impressed with the Wo Fat escape. Just too implausible. Didn't like the Doris explanation either. So she left her kids to keep them safe? HUH Why not take the whole family and disappear. Didn't make much sens.
Looked to be an interesting season, but we'll see.
Hi!I am very disappointed by the first episode,it seems that the writers have lost the plot, the history of Moma Mcg does not make sense,the first season is perfect,storyline is ok and the pieces of the puzzle fit together, the second is ok until the episode 15,after the script becomes horrible,the last two episodes of the worst of the season...I think if we do not change course this season will be the last, too bad because it could be a great series ;o(((what do you think??
