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
Did I blink and miss Chin and Kono in this one? Sigh. The best thing about this show (in my opinion) is the core team interaction and this one failed at that and I can't really see why. There were plenty of opportunities to include the other two in the action and they just didn't. All I can hope is that this isn't the beginning of a trend.
I am not really that interested in watching the Steve/Cath/Danny (and now Monkey) show. I continue to be disinterested in Cath - I don't find her offensive as a character or annoying, just boring. I might be the only one, but I found her much more compelling as a Naval Officer and a lot less compelling laying on Steve's couch or offering up advice to a child. I don't mind new characters, but spread it around show - how about a Danny connected character or a little background on Chin or Kono (is Chin done mourning now? That was ...quick)?

Mrs. Cleaver, how the killer got the victims to the crime scene, was he hit them head on with his truck. Remember that whole car accident scene at the opening. The 5-0's remarked that no one could have walked away from that upside down car. They were injured, so Goat Man was able to drag them off to his lair.
I liked the 'crime' storyline of the creepy grandma/grandson, and appreciated that they just let the core team handle the case. But in general I'm not liking the direction this season is going. I was really looking forward to Steve's mom coming back and how seeing how that relationship/dynamic would unfold - but she has only been in 1 episode (besides the premiere) and only briefly. I don't get that. Instead they are focusing Steve's 'personal time' on his relationship with Catherine, which has become totally cheesey and pointless. I think they should give Danno the girlfriend and finally give him something to be happy about!!
Former Miss America and 70's TV regular Lee Merriweather did a great job as the creepiest grandma ever last nite. Who saw HER skewering the terrified captive, just after she sends her psycho grandson out to get her some mint chocolate chip ice cream? I didn't. And let's say that you usually can see a plot twist coming on H50 from a mile away.
Good episode, reminded me of the "honeymoon killer" epi from the first season. I LOVE how the writers are using Catherine, she SO humanizes Steve. Around her he generally goes from uptight Super Seal to geeky high school kid in no time. Not much action for Kono and Chin (who was rocking a hot short haircut) but Danno's Monkey has returned. Only to promptly ditch him for her friends, leaving Danno to come play third wheel w/Steve & Cath.
As usual, they left some stuff unresolved. How did Psycho Grandson get 2 injured teens home from the accident scene? Grandma pick them up?
Second time this season H50 has killed off a big 70's TV star in a b
Am not a Halloween fan, a gore fan, or a Criminal Minds fan, so this was a rough one for me. But i love Hawaii 5-0 and I acknowledge that not every episode is going to be written to my specific personal preferences. LOL. I LOVED that they book-ended all the gruesome with both an opening and a closing couch scene. Ha!!! I adore Cath; she can hold her own with McG. Thus he ended up unlucky both nights. And I agree with him on the Notebook, but penance is a b*tc#, Super Seal. ;)
You're not the only one who was creeped out by that. It was gross.
I enjoyed the episode, especially the scenes at Steve's house. And Grace talking with Catherine. I didn't really need an explanation of the motives. 5-0 doesn't do that as well as Criminal Minds, anyways. What they do well is the takedown.
I thought the ep was ok but I was disappointment that Kono and Chin get little screentime and Cath got more. Sorry I not a fan of Cath.
