Hi Jim, You make some good points about McG being transported to a scene or Kono being a robot. That would not be true to the show, and would probably get a different crowd watching and would not last long.

My complaint is that every single episode someone, not just you, but someone points out some probability with reality. Its done on all the shows, but they seem to be pointed out on H50 more then any other show and yet its not any more than another other show. Some of what is pointed out, actually could happen. I can only speak for myself, but I don't just sit there and say its only a TV show so its fine. If I am entertained, why would I care so much that it probably would not happen in real life.

Love this episode. Great to see Steve back in character instead of the wuss he's portrayed when he's around Danny. cath is great but I wish she'd tell Steve enough with the favours, but this is probably due to the bromance. Steve can't have a proper relationship as it would upset the McDanno fans. Still the usual complaints about any new characters. I think the audience are quite happy with the change of pace and the new characters, thus the increase in ratings. Plots and writing has improved a lot over the last few episodes. I hope this keeps up.

All the sentimental types out there need to lighten up on Doris. She's a former CIA assassin, not a cookie baker. So of course she shocks the bad guy to find out if he knows who else out there may be trying to kill her. Steve would do the same thing if nobody was watching. That's what makes her an interesting character, instead of some sap who spends all day making dinner and folding Steve's laundry. I think she's an intriguing addition to the show.

I have never watched Hawaii Five-O but I am a huge fan of Vanessa Marcil. She was fantastic and I loved her sexy, smart and badass Olivia!!

yes i believe steve did introduce cath to his mom as an intelligence officer, but jim is also right...in her initial appearances on the show she was a communications offer working on an aircraft carrier. that's one of my only complaints about this show - they definitely play it loose with the character continuity in order to make their story lines work.

and even though they have now decided she is an intel officer, they have also established that she is on leave (hence why she is always around!), so how does she still have instant access to all of her resources, weapons, gadgets, etc...? highly doubtful that someone on leave could just have someone put on a no-fly list without any other information. wouldn't that need to come from higher up?? steve could've just called his contacts at the FBI or DOD to handle that. i know, i know...it's just tv, but i do think the writing could be tighter.

It would've been better had Kono and Olivia "interacted". The cat fight coming from that little run in could have made television history...

Thanks jschoi, I will go back and check that out... I'm a little more willing to allow for weapons and weird work hours if they are playing her up more as Intel..

In ep 1 this season Steve introduced Catherine to Doris as a Navel Intelligence Officer.

Absolutely agree with Jim. Each TV show has its own norms or little universe where the norms of science, law, medicine,etc may differ a little or a lot from the real world. So maybe in H50 land there is Q Branch at Pearl Harbor which hands out James Bondian toys to naval officers. The key is for people to realize that just because you see it on TV doesn't make it real.
