Hawaii Five-O > Hawaii Five-0 Review: Cat and Mouse > Comments Page 3
When Steve sat down at the table with the psycho/psychologist with the restraining order, I just wanted to KICK HIM in the pants. Grrr!!
I think I was on too much of a high from last week and the week before, because this one felt like a disappointment to me. Some was good....love Steve and Kono working together although I thought that would have been a great time to show them discussing Adam but whatever.... , love that they were on another island, and I have to say I loved Danny in this one a lot! Chin was MIA which I hated.
Cath/Mom : Im not really aure how I feel. The story doesnt interest me at all, although I do find crazyMom more interesting than weepyMom. And I thought Cath and AgentWhatever had some chemistry together.
This whole ep and all the acting felt really flat to me like it had no energy at all. Probably wont rewatch.
My hatred against Doris grows with every episode I see her. Don't like it one bit she pulls Catherine in her web of secrets. I bet she did the same with Joe, Doris does not have any problems to ask the people who Steve love and trust the most to lie to him.
And I am afraid it will backfire Cath she does exactly the same as Joe when will they understand that Steve is a grown man, he can take some bad news about his mother.
Now there is definite material for the Steve & Cath rocky path When Oliva talked about his momma issues Steve said "I don't like being played" Steve is not going appreciate having someone close to him lie once again.
I wonder how Doris will explain the broken lamp and the bruises on her face. to Steve. Speaking of Doris I didn't like how she torture Mangosta that woman is really sick in her head.
Looking forward to next week!!
I did like the episode....it was different but enjoyable to watch!
Crime of the week was good nice to see a different case and I didn't saw the Madam coming!, I enjoyed the cat and mouse game between Steve and Olivia of course our SuperSeal was right from the beginning . I liked the opening bit with Steve/Kono. It always makes me happy when they switch it up and don’t stick to their regular pairings
Loved badass Cath and her story with the agent. We finally found out where she lives she really has a nice home.
Steve and Danny where fun tonight I am glad the writers changed Danny behavior love him so much more now instead of a whiningand complaing Danny all the time............ and it was good to see Duke again. Missed Chin this episode!! Continue!
First of all, Agent Channing may be suspended, but that doesn't mean he doesn't have his own gun besides his service weapon. And why would he go to Catherine's commanding officer? he didn't seem to want to make her pay so much as to get information about Mangosta, which might be hard to do if he rats her out. Second, Catherine works in Naval Intelligence, so if anyone would have hacking equipment it would be her.
She's gonna regret keeping this from Steve because he will find out.
I don't normally like to give the show a grade, but today it gets 2 grades. I give the crime of the week a 5 and the Doris/Catherine a 2. I watch to see the team and usually all the other stuff doesn't really matter to me, but this week I thought it was to long. I would have given it higher grade had it been shorter. Don't like Doris, I'm ok with Catherine, for me it's all about the team.
I don't watch for reality, I watch to be entertained and this show seldom fails. If I wanted reality I'd watch reality shows, oh wait they aren't real either, oh well. My reality is school and life, not H50.
I have been saying the same thing about cat peter your losing it give us a break were not studpit stop fixing things that ant broken leave the show alone after the lori scram you would think you learn leave it alone
continued...I found myself thinking along similar lines, wondering how Steve is going to deal with his sociopathic mother and now a girlfriend who agrees to hide things from him. Scary! I loved the fact that Steve was certain of the madam psycotherapist's guilt right from the get-go, and he never swerved from that opinion, despite his coworkers thinking he was crazy. He had the courage of his convictions and his gut, and was willing to put in the time necessary to nail her butt to the wall. Vanessa Marcil does look careworn and older, but if she is 44, she should be showing her age about now, particularly if she lives in a sunny climate like Los Angeles or Hawaii. We should allow for women especially to look their age and appear normal on TV, since in real life, women are not all pencil-thin and perfect.
I have to say, though I know it is a bit cheesy (okay, maybe more than a bit) that ever since I watched the original Hawaii Five-O with my family in the 70s (and we all thought that the theme song was so GROOVY!)that the best part of the show for me was when McGarrett would say "Book em, Danno" and the bad guy did the perp walk. Now whenever I hear Alex O say to Scott Caan, "Book em, Danno" I get this dejavu thrill of knowing the bad guy, or gal, is going down, thanks to our heroes. That, and the hunky men (Daniel Dae Kim, Scott Caan and Alex O'Loughlin) make this reboot of H5O totally worthwhile for me.
Now as to this ep, I have to agree with Elisa on this: "That's going to be McG's dilemma. Can he live with THIS mother? Can she really be family to him? And is she going to end up dragging Cath down with her, and ruin that relationship for McG too?" I found myself thinking along similar lines, wondering how Steve is going to deal with his sociopathic mother and now a girlfriend who ag
I have been saying the same thing on fb but nobody will listen cat is
Please write Doris out of the show. Her role is nothing but a superficial side piece and a distraction to the show.
I liked a lot about this episode. The plot twists and motive with the psychologist were a complete surprise. I also liked the cat-and-mouse interplay with her and Steve.
I didn't like the other story with Catherine and Doris, however. For Peter Lenkov,(or whoever),to compare Steve with Doris as "the apple did not fall far from the tree", does a disservice to Steve IMO. As questionable as some of McGarrett's tactics were in Season 1, they were nothing like the torture Doris inflicted in last nights' episode. She is vicious! I agree too, that there is no way that Catherine can keep this incident from Steve.
I'm sorry, but the whole Doris involvement is a mess,IMO. I don't know whether it's because of the actress, or how they've written her character. I think she should be written out of the show by bringing Joe White back, develop a romantic relationship between the two, and move back to Japan.
And writers, please stop with gruesome dead bodies and body parts.
the november 26th eepisode of hawaii five-o was great!!cat and mouse and steve was right on the money all along!1 as for the doris/catherine storyline that was great the fact that doris has some serious issues that shes keeping from steve is going to blow -up in her face sooner or later!! catherine should have said give me some time to think it over and i will give you my answer!! p.s. congratulations to ALEX O'LOUGHLIN who is aproud daddy!1 so now you have 2 sons tied for first place for being aDOUBLE CHIP OFF THE OLD BLOCK!!KUDOS TOMOMAND DAD AND BIG BROTHER!!! eileen kimmey
I don't see why the writers/producers feel the need to make every female character a gun totting, spy chasing, bad@ss. Come on...Lori, Doris, and now Catherine! And if Doris is such a super spy why did she even need Catherine's help with Mangosta, why get her son's girlfriend involved in all that. Again it seems like another forced story for Catherine. I like the way they handled her character before because it showed a different side of Steve and gave his character a reprieve from the crime, tough guy, super seal stuff.
Good news on the ratings. H50 won the night with a season high of 10.1 million viewers. Castle had the night off though. With Revolution going hiatus, hopefully ratings will continue to climb. Did anyone catch what they did with Mangosta at the end? And cut Mom a little slack. At least she didn't apply the battery cables to a more sensitive area of his anatomy.
Did anyone else notice the CIA card and photo that Catherine slipped under the mat when Steve's back was turned for a second (when asking her for the favor)? The pix didn't look like a younger Doris - but was it? Hard to tell. Or is this another story line being built for the future?
For all the various bits we sometimes don't like about the show - I'm continuing to enjoy most of it and look forward to each new episode (and sometimes disappointed but most often satisfied).
Loved the cat-and-mouse. Amazed at how Doris could look so evil when telling Rollins and Channing to get out. Agree that Catherine should have replied to Doris by saying that either Doris tells Steve what went down or she will.
Secrets between Cath and Steve don't sit well.
Someday, maybe, the writers for this show will learn how the world actually works. Since when can a person of interest in a murder investigation get a restraining order issued against the lead investigator without even a hearing before a judge? And if it's that easy, why aren't more suspects doing it? Come on. All Steve did was show up at her office and get into an argument. He never laid a hand on her. It was a cheap plot device, and not plausible in the least.
I agree there is no need for the hateful remarks about Vanessa Marcil. She looks fine for 44. As to Cath I really don't see it as a big deal that she promised not to tell Steve about Doris being in danger again. Steve is not exactly forthcoming with the truth either when it suits him. Why did he take so long to tell Mary that her mother was alive. Steve's a grown man and he's not going to fall apart because Cath kept something from him. Cath has pretty much put her life on hold for him and been at his beck and call and Steve gives nothing back. I think if they do have words over Doris, Cath could point out a few home truths to Steve as well. I like that the writers are giving some layers to the characters for a change.
An episode where McG isn't pummeling someone every ten minutes is refreshing. The sight of a sixty five year old woman applying jumper cables (and enjoying it) to Mancuso the international assassin was hilarious! The script writer truly has a sense of humor.
I liked the episode. It was fun to watch the cat-n-mouse game between Steve and the dastardly doctor! And, even better that the team didn't believe him but when they realized his super seal senses were spot on, they rallied round. Steve didn't even have to say, told ya so!! Teamwork at its best.
Catherine and Doris are another story. I was so upset that Catherine agreed to keep Doris' secret. I know we're not supposed to like Doris and I don't. She's mean, evil, brutal and conniving. Cath signed a deal with the devil by agreeing to her terms. Can't you feel the hurt and trouble this will cause for Steve - someone else to disappoint him - and her too. All this hiding of secrets will definitely come back to haunt them. Cath knew what she was getting into when she first helped Steve with Doris. While I don't like the mom/Shelburne arc it should prove to be interesting to see how it finally ends.
I'd rate it a solid 3.8 too. This season is sooo much better than s2. If I want a good
OK, some don't want Catherine out on her own, others don't want her with the team. Catherine haters unite, no matter what. I love what they are doing with Catherine, they are bringing her along as they should. I get that some people don't want anyone else there, and thats their preference, but we don't all think alike. Catherine is involved and she is not going anywhere. Even though I don't like that she is now keeping Doris secrets, its what makes it interesting. Doris is a little more badass than I thought, still don't like her, but that is what the writers want us to do.
I don't get all the hateful comments about female looks, nothing is usually said about the male actors. Vanessa Marcil is a good actor, and she proved it. I loved that she upset McG so much, it was great. And of course the show's hero wins. I also have to agree about the comments stating its a TV show, not reality, it was entertaining. I think was a good episode, I liked the previous 2 better, but so fa
They did explain at the start of the season that Catherine was taking a leave of absense and Steve enlisted her to look out for her mom.
Also I do not think Catherine will be able to keep the secret from Steve, plus what will Doris tell him about the bruises on her face.
My only issue with the episode was seeing the outside of Steve's house, while it is very beautiful seeing purple flowers and pretty lanterns I highly doubt a guy like Steve would have that in front of his house
This was a pretty good episode. I am not a Vanessa Marcil fan and personally I do not think she is pretty, she used to be but she has had way to much botox!
Anyways back to the episode. Steve did not look dumb, he was right all along about her and did not back down and that is one of the things I love about him! It was funny seeing the look on Danny's face when he realzied that Steve was right the whole time! Danny will never doubt Steve again. So once again we get alot more Kono. I really like the Steve and Danny moments but it is neat seeing the other partnerships. Now we need Steve and Chin to go out on an investigation together. Once again all those people that were so convinced Kono was being phased out, they are proving what I knew all along that she IS NOT going anywhere.
Doris is one tough chick! I must have missed it but I do not know why Channing did not want Steve to know about Mangosta. Also I do not think Catherine will be able to keep the secret from Steve,
Totally agree...I really enjoyed the crime story - fun to see someone getting the best of McGarret and rattling his cage. But of course, we all knew he'd win in the end!
The Doris/Catherine storyline was ridiculous. Catherine should not be getting her own storylines separate from Steve and/or the team...she's not that big of a character. And the scene where she scaled the hotel balcony was almost laughable. I don't get why they can't just have her be Steve's love interest and leave it at that. And I wish they'd focus more on Doris' relationships with Steve/Mary and less on her spy stuff. I think they're wasting some potentially good character development storylines there.
