Hawaii Five-O > Hawaii Five-0 Review: Borrowed Time > Comments Page 3
I enjoyed last night's show, especially the spotlight on the US Army at Fort Shafter for Veterans Day. Danno's backstory to 9/11 was heartfelt.
I don't dislike Catherine, but it is not clear what is her role. The team could have requested the intel through official channels at Pacific Command. Perhpas that should be Catherine's role - liaison to PACOM.
Also, she would not be lounging at the Hilton, even on her day off. The Hale Koa (House of the Warrior) is a military resort next to the Hilton - she would have been there, sucking down cheaper Blue Hawaiians. Then again, the Hilton sponsors the show.
As far as lame / no thinking required commercial network programming is concerned ....it was watchable ....having lived in HNL, I watch mainly for the overhead shots of the island ...
I loved this show..and love Danny!
This was great ep. Danny's story lines are great. I loved the fact that he named his daughter after his partner. The father-daughter dance was sweet. I love the Steve-Danny connection. The old series didn't do much of that. This is a great remake a classic series. Well done!
I initially didn't think I was going to like the episode. It reminded me too much of the Season 1 ep where Chin had the bomb around his neck and couldn't move, and then they did a 'flashback' to the hours leading up to the moment with the bomb - it seemed like a complete copy cat. Plus, any time a show has a Kardashian make a guest appearance, I'm tempted to turn the channel! But the second half of the episode was great. Glad to see Danny finally get a good story line, the 9/11 tie-in was intense, and the ending was sweet.
I'm still not getting the addition of Catherine - she didn't offer any information the team couldn't have found without her, as they have done in many other episodes. Glad to see Mom is finally coming back next week!
Liked this ep a lot. At first, I thought the "flashback within a flashback" would be confusing, but it wasn't, and I liked that they fast-forwarded through the scenes we already saw when things returned to real time.
The only detractors for me were:
1. Danny's polemic on the constant terrorist threat; not that it wasn't true, but I think a lot of people share that opinion so he was preaching to the choir.
2. Terence Howard? REALLY?!?!?! Not that he's not a good actor, but I thought the role was a little young for him.
Another great epi for this season. This season has been very strong; it is a shame the Revolution seems to be syphoning viewers.
I don't think people hate Danny. He's a natural born whiner, as well as a guy with some troubles in his past. McG has a rather equally troubled past. But Danno's personality just makes it easy to make fun of him, which is part of the fun of the character. McG made fun of him in this epi, about the dress and the Chewbacca chest. I loved that exchange! But McG takes Danno seriously too, and loves him. It was really emotional to see their connection as McG refused to abandon his Danno no matter what. I do wish they hadn't killed off Terence Howard though. I would love to see him again. They kill off a lot of famous people on this show!
I loved this episode, I really thought danny had weird hair in the past though. But overall it was amazing, now if only they could make an episode that showed his divorce with Rachel.
Thank you 50, awesome ep, best this season by far and one of my favorites ever.I'm going to watch again as soon as classes are over this morning. want to watch the scene in the store, was that girl hitting on Dannny? Absolutely loved the scene between Steve and Danny after the bomb was disarmed, you can say a lot without saying a word. Love it, love it love it, hope some of the viewers who have left get a chance to see this ep, maybe it will bring some back.
correction...Danny found out that he had a baby on the way, not born on that day. Sorry, did not say it right.
@McDanno.....well said, I feel the same. However, I don't think that is going to stop the same people, complaining about the same thing over and over, but I liked that you pointed out what this character has been through.
I liked this episode very much. Danny's past is what makes him Danny. I loved the emotions both Scott and Alex have in the scenes they play, very well acted. Thank you Peter Lenkov and the writers for giving reference to 9/11 without exploiting it. We now know what Danny, being a former NJ cop, was doing on that day, and that it was the day he found out about his daughter being born. This character has gone through a lot, and is why he shows so much emotion and worry about the people he cares about. Grace is growing up fast, and both the scenes in the store and at the dance were just adorable, really tugs at the heart strings. Love this show more and more.
I like the episode Danny is my favorite and this was good I knew his partner Grace was going to die poor Danny had to watch her die to make things worst it was on 911 and we know now Grace got her name. I liked dance between Danny and Grace at father and daughter dance it was really cute
Ok. I got something to say for all you Danny haters out there who think he's just a nagging wife. Let's examine this poor guy's life shall we. First, his best friend dies in an undertow trying to save him. Then on 9/11, he's interrogated & tortured & watches his own partner get shot & killed. Then he has to move Hawaii to b w/ his daughter after a nasty divorce (which consisted of 2 custody agruments). Next Danny loses his friend Mecca.Then Danny's only brother goes into hiding. By the end of season 1, Danny becomes exposed to sarine & almost dies. In addition, he thinks he's reconciling w/ Rachel but it turns out the baby's Stan's! Next, he fails to save the woman who saved his life, Jenna Kaye & almost loses Steve's. Danny also helps deliver his ex wife's baby that isn't his. Then Danny has to save Grace when she's kidnapped by his expartner who killed a friend of his. At the end of season 1, he's captured by feds! To top it all off, he's almost killed by a bomb.
I enjoyed this episode quite a lot, we got a good share around of action and emotion. The story jumping was done well, wasn't too hard to follow. Love the idea of the drinking game Jim! Next Five-0 marathon I'm playing that for sure. I think the season is going great, it has high expectations and a lot of people are expecting way too much. Nonetheless it is still a fantastic show and I think people need to stop complaining about little things which can be overlooked in a 40 minute production. It's a shame the ratings are still low, there really isn't another show like it on TV.
