Hawaii Five-O > Hawaii Five-0 Review: Halloween Do Over > Comments Page 2
The story had some faults, not one of the best, but was still entertaining. I like Catherine, and she is being used as she should be. I'm sure there are more things coming in future episodes with Catherine helping Steve out.
I did miss Kono and Chin. I don't think that they are ignoring her, or phasing her out. I know there is only so much time, but I would like to see the long awaited story of Adam and Kono continued. Loved the evil Granny, played beautifully by Lee Merriweather. Grace was adorable as a bee, she is growing pretty fast, which is a problem with child actors, she is looking older than 10 years old. Loved Catherine and her together. Kamekono dressed up as a seal was hilarious.
Boring and repetitive. The show is putting me to sleep.
Taking Kono out of her bikini, even in the opening credits, is a huge mistake.
She is the only thing keeping the show together and her role gets smaller? Very poor writers.
This show will die soon. I hope Grace Park finds something better :)
Good entertaining story but the characters continue to be underdeveloped and are becoming less compelling each week. Danny has officially no purpose at all now except for hints of a relationship between him and Steve, which gets more childish and cringe worthy each week. Grace displays more maturity than her father.
I used to love all the characters but they're all pretty much shallow caricatures now with no depth whatsoever. Far too much wasted potential. They need to make these characters interesting again or ratings will never recover. Get rid of Danny or at least try and give him something to do and give Chin some decent screen time and please allow Steve to act like a kick ass Navy SEAL again and stop turning him into a idiot around Danno.
Yikes, some of the scenes still got me before I was able to close my fingers over my eyes. Scary, creepy, bloody is not my cup of tea, but I loved watching all the fluffy, funny, banter parts in between. Enjoyed watching the team together and Chin rocked his new haircut, so cute is he ; ). As for the story lines and unanswered plot lines, "the imagination has no limitation" and in my head I filled in all the blanks which probably ended up far creepier than need be. Looking forward to next week.
I thought I would not have to comment again about the writing and the casting after last season's end. But alas. This week the show started cute and then dived. The show should be about a 'case' with the personal relationships secondary, IMO. I like Catherine but she is on the screen too much to the detriment of Chin and Kono. Sound familiar? More importantly, her role is bordering on artificial. We get it that she is McG's FWB. I want more core 4 interactions and good story telling. In Season 1 (sorry to repeat old arguments) McG was kick-ass and Danny was the professional cop. The writers have repeatedly blown opportunities. A story with Kono as a trainee needing mentoring. Chin acting out his sadness and mourning. McG's emotional battles with mommy dearest. A plot that takes more than 10 minutes to tell and solve because the personal stuff takes up too much time. When Cath was a recurring character they could place her in a story to good effect without detracting from
(cont.)...As for the story, It was not one of my favorites, although I did like Lee Merriweather's portrayal. I agree that they should have explained more of how and why. I think despite this episode, the writers have layed the foundation of a great season ahead. I know the ratings are down, and that the addition of another show on another network pulled some people away, but no one is running away with the timeslot.
The character of Catherine is being brought along just as she should be. Yes we did not see Kono or Chin as much, but we will in other episodes. Catherine is Steve's girlfriend, she is going to be there with him. I love that she is the female that points things out to Grace. Everytime, we have Kono not in a whole lot of scenes, then someone brings up that they are replacing her. This started in the first season, how many seasons does she have to do before people stop thinking she wants to leave, or they are phasing her out? I want more Kono and Chin, but Steve is the Major character, and Danny is his partner. I'm tired of defending Danny, I think he's great. (Cont.)
Very disappointed in this episode. The torture scene crossed the line and as the review said, we got no answers as to why the killings and how they were linked to the satanic rituals.
Once again, Cath was forced into the show and got more screen time than Chin or Kono. Steve and Cath are adults, why do they try to make them look like horny teenagers trying to sneak in a make out session while Mom is away? It might have been okay if they had any chemistry between them. Just flat and boring watching the two together. No wonder Steve was watching Chucky rather than making out with his FWB. Boring! Totally unbelievable throwing in that scene with Cath and Grace. Now she is a confidant that Grace would be comfortable with. Sure haven't seen it before. Also, in 2 plus years we haven't gotten a Grace/Kono or Grace/Chin scene and the Grace/Steve scenes have been when Danno was in danger/hospital.
Cath should be returned as a recurring booty call, because the character doesn't
I likethe show and agree with some of you and other I don't. I liked the last sean when Steve and Danny were sitting together. I liked Cath telling Grace about fathers that can't be around all the time.
i LOVE the show....and i LOVE danny....and thought last night's eppy was GREAT...liked catherine spending time with grace....it shows that danny trusts her with HIS daughter....and i DON'T want to see ANYONE leave....scott and alex are GREAT together.
I think that Cath actually shows us Steve as a man, not only as super Navy Seal.I will be happy to see more action in that direction - may be Steve/Cath and the other without a case. It will be inetersting to see what will they do if they don't run after the bad guys. Danno - why is he always angry and showing in the most awful time? What is happening with Gaby? When she was around he wasn't so bitter.And where is Adam - Kono was great with him.I think they have to be together. The case - oh my God - what a crasy guy and even more crasy grandmother. What was her deal anyway? And why is Seth wanted to kill that other boy?
A lot of answered questions, but inspite that the episode was amazing like always. Can't wait till next week.
This was one of the best stories of the week so far. I wish the writers would stick with this rather than the cheesy silly dialogue we've been getting lately. I'd like to see more of kick ass Navy SEAL Steve and less of Danny. The show turns into a joke as soon as Danny walks into a room. Catherine is fine and would like to see her getting more to do than being Steve's girlfriend. They're great together but I'd like to see her do some Navy stuff again. Danny just drags the show down and he has no purpose other being totally irritating.
I hope Adam comes back soon.
Kind of a goofy, wierd ep, and I agree with the reviewer that we never really got to find out WHY the perp and his evil creepy grandmother were performing satanic rituals...I mean, what was the point? Did they feel that was something to share to make their relationship work? Did they feel they were getting special powers or favors by sacrificing people? All that nasty blood and killing, and we only get the grandma killing herself and another officer and the perp getting shot down at the last minute by Steve. I thought the scene with Katherine and Grace was pretty nice, and I loved the end scene when Danno cuddled up to Steve to watch The Notebook, but other than that, this ep was kind of a wash. And though I wouldn't be too sad if they did phase out Grace Park (she doesn't really have any acting skills), I would be devastated if they got rid of Daniel Dae Kim, who is a wonderful actor.
I like story lines where there are unanswered questions such as what was g-ma's deal with Seth (I'm thinking she was a goat worshiper too in her younger years and maybe he learned from her) Or, she knew he was evil but was her g-son so she covered for him and how did the "vic" get from car wreck to g-mas house? We only have an hour(less with commercials) to get a whole story out there. Filling in the blanks adds to the excitement and conversations.
Please stick with crime of the week with the fab four. No needed regulars. Guest stars as bad guys is great. Grandmas acting was spot on.
It's becoming a little too obvious that the "powers that be" are laying the foundation to phase out Grace Park. Why they would do that is the question. Maybe she wants more $ or she's tired of not getting any screen time. She maybe had about a minute last night. I like Michelle Borth a lot but she should have stayed in the same roll as before. Scott is like a nagging wife and almost unbearable to watch sometimes. He never smiles, never says anything positive and pisses and moans about everything. I had a wife like that, she's gone now. Replaceing him with Catherine might be good. Also, Daniel Dae Kim is TWICE the actor as Scott Caan. I believe Scott should be BEHIND the camera...
This was a horrible five o show.it was worse than criminal minds which has to be the absolute worst program on tv- I am so upset with the writer's that i will watch Castle instead.get your act together for decent programs,please.
@AnetaMaria - Thank you for replying. I get that he hit them with his stolen truck. But HOW did the kids get from there to tied up in his cellar? Cause both the truck he was driving and the car they were driving were left on the scene. Did he physically carry two injured kids home? Don't think he could do that.
I'm gonna watch it again and see if they answer this question or leave it unresolved. Appreciate your thoughts.
i've said this before and i don't mean to harp on it, but i just don't see the reason for Catherine being on full-time. the producers/writers seem so determined to add another female character that they cram them in, regardless of if they actually serve a purpose. i like Catherine but i don't see the point of her being a regular. if they wanted to show steve's softer side, they could've used his mom and that storyline to do that. it would at least make sense for the direction of the show and tie in to what's happened in the past. i think the fans have been pretty vocal about wanting personal relationships to remain secondary story lines. it's good to explore the characters, but put the focus back on the team and their jobs.
Nice to have a episode that focuses on the case of the week instead of the subplots involving the team. The team starts on the case Halloween evening, they work through the night, all day on Nov. 1 into the evening, Steve caps the bad boy, and then goes home to watch "Chucky" with Catherine? Danno comes over with Grace. Isn't kind of late for her - a school night? When do they sleep? Not good news on the rating scene. H50 finished last with only 7.4 million viewers-lowest of the season. The CBS news special had 7.9 million viewers. The show will probably be on another season or two to get enough episodes for syndication but its definitely not going to equal the original.
Except for Danny being as useless and annoying as usual this wasn't a bad episode. Probably the best of the season so far. Better writing this week and the show actually managed to surprise me. I've forgotten about Doris already. Terrible character and storyline. Wish they'd just forget about it. I like Cath but they need to give her something besides being the girlfriend.
Creepy show. Love the coroner! Gracie is so cute. Catherine and Grace together, good move by the writers.
last nights hawaii five-o was red hot and in superhigh gear! we need to see more of steve&caterine masking out just like inlasts nights episode!! you are the greatest military super couple way to go!!!i give last nights episode ten stars!! eileen kimmey
Given that Seth was literally inthe process fo plunging a knife into his victim, there was no time to yell "stop" or "5-0" or anythign else. And it was incredibly obvious that the shooting would happen like that.
Not one of the best episodes, IMHO. Over-the-top and at times almost felt tongue-in-cheek.
sorry, too long. Cont.
C/K grew up on the island - they should have all kinds of family and friends that would be interesting to see them (and the team) interact with, but it seems like they have no life at all outside of standing at the computer table. I guess I just wish the show could do a better job of balancing out some storylines. Steve is drowning in unfinished storylines and the other three are void of them. I really like all of the four characters and I want to know more about them, not just Steve, as much as I like him, too.
I thought the case was pretty interesting this week - creepy and twisted and I did like it. Catwoman was really, really great.
I am glad other people enjoyed this one because this show should be fun and enjoyable above all else, but it just didn't work for me. I am hoping it is a one-off and they will get back on track with some better storylines for the Danny, Chin and Kono soon and something better for Steve than girlfriend/not-girlfriend - angs
