Who wants to learn how to do THAT???Amazing....My favorite moment from last nights episode.Steve, Danno and the ALoha girls - what a team!!!On the other hand - Michael is badddd news, Chin is right.
@Carmine - I agree, the "who wants to learn to do THAT!" was one of my favorite lines of the night.
Well to me eventhough he is a navy seal, if he was not 100% sure that he could take the gun away without it going off and shooting Lucy or even himself he was wise to wait until the moment he did to take him down.
Rosa: I totally agree with you!
What has happened to our favorite Superseal? Last week he lost a rooftop chase to and was taken captive by a guy with terminal cancer. This week he can't take out a pudgy rent-a-cop with a bad leg? In the original 5-O it was Chin Ho not Kono who was killed off. Kono (played by Gilbert Lani Kauhi aka Zulu ) left after season 4. From what I've read Zulu was fired by producer Leonard Freeman after he had a verbal altercation with a member of the production team. That episode where Chin was killed was unique. It is the only episode in either series where Steve McGarrett actually "booked" someone himself. Ratings at this time of the year don't mean much but H50 had 10.4 million viewers to a Castle rerun (5.9) and a Michael Buble Christmas special (5.8)
I loved this episode!
I said this last week but will say it again, Alex is getting hotter and hotter, I did not think that was possible.
This was a different case for the week but it was really good. I loved at the end when Gracie said that Lucy wants to marry Steve....what girl would not want to marry Steve and furthermore Alex!
I was not expecting Danny to get shot but then I remembered if he could survive crazy torture then a bullet would be no match for him. I wonder if he did not show up in the nick of time if Steve would have been a goner, I think not but it is hard to say.
I really enjoy the Danny and Gracie moments.
Michael is bad news, I fear how this will all end. It is the start of a huge storyline for Kono.
So 1 more episode before winter break!
I loved the episode, there was fun, drama and some shooting And i want in the race for a camping badge! those things are Epic!
And Wteve wasn't going to put a kids life in dangour to unarm that guy, it's best to wait for the right opportunity.
I agree with Dreamrose and jschoi. I understand it's just a TV show, but totally was not buying that Steve couldn't have easily taken the guy out several times. I also felt the disconnect with the team being so separate the entire episode.
And come on...how many times can Steve & Danno get hijacked on their day off?? They go fishing - hijacked. They go camping - hijacked. Then we have Danny with the last minute kill shot again, just like last week. This just felt like a random filler episode to me. But I do appreciate that Catherine wasn't forced in, considering we already had minimal screen time for Chin.
I love this show, no matter how cheesy, lovie dovie, or sappy it may be, it keeps me entertained, interested and brings a big old smile to my face....I just love everything about it...I take everything with a grain of salt and don't judge, not to mention the 5-O team are very easy on the eyes..lol.
Oh...and no Max, and Catherine M.I.A. for the second week in a row.
In a word: schmaltzy . But the bit with the cell phone was HILARIOUS!!!
THIS is how Tom Arnold attempts a comeback? As a greedy ex-con rent-a-cop who points guns at little girls? Non wonder Roseanne divorced his fat a$$. :-). And the whole crime du jour just fizzled with both criminals ending up dead instead of imprisoned. Where's our "book 'im Danno!"?
Oh..and Michael...listen to your cousin, Kono. He's baaaaaaaaaad news.
Ok ep, not one of my favorites for sure. I did like the girl and the cell and camping inside. I may try that myself after my camping experience this summer, and yes we do have bears in B.C. I watch for the 4 stars, I like most of the regulars but they are secondary to me. I didn't feel that everyone was totally involved the last 2 weeks. This is just my opinion and I realize most will not agree with me, When the whole team is not fully involved I don't feel the ohana. It's just my feeling.
Steve, what's wrong with you? You can't take down a wounded, half-crippled rent-a-cop with a revolver? You're a SEAL, for Pete's sake, a SEAL! He should have been able to easily overpower and disarm the moron, the very first time the idiot started waving that gun around. Steve knew full well there were a large number of defenseless children nearby, not to mention the one right in front of him. Instead, Steve puts them all in harm's way! And poor Lucy is traumatized for life, being kidnapped, held hostage, seeing no fewer than three men shot in front of her (Danny, the hiker, and the idiot rent-a-cop), forced to hide in the jungle all alone with a guy chasing after her to kill her... You get the idea.
Agreeing with Zia. This was a wonderful episode! Steve with the kids was a revelation. He got so excited talking about gutting boar. LOL! And the best part was, the kids loved it! These were no shrinking violets. Loved the fun of this scout troop and their incredibly intrepid leader. And Steve waited for his moment and won it. It was just his misfortune that there was a second perp. I love how he managed to get the first perp shot, though. He knew exactly what he was doing. And if Cath doesn't work out, though I hope she does, maybe Steve should marry little Lucy when she grows up. She's awesome. Those scenes were awesome. This epi was like a little vacation--- one that went horribly wrong, but was very entertaining as a result. One of my favorites for sure!
(cont.) As for the other story, I loved seeing Steve with the kids. Alex's love for children shows through, as does Danny. Grace has had a lot of time this season as well and I hope this continues. Loved seeing Grace be the one who crawls through the tunnel. The girl who played Lucy was wonderful, it was heartbreaking watching her cry when Ron said she was going with him.
I think Steve should have and did show more caution with a child there. If something happens to him, then Lucy has no chance on her own. He waited for the right moment, not knowing there was someone else, but then got away with Lucy. I doubt we will, but I hope we see Lucy again. Loved Madeline, she's a great leader. The little girl dumming it down for Danny was funny. I thought this was a great episode. This year has not disappointed.
I thought this was a great episode and very entertaining. I loved that we finally got to see Adam. His brother has to be the evil one. Kono was not being naive, she does not trust Michael. She defended Adam, but when Chin asked her about Michael she did not answer, and when they were at the table and Michael commented on her being a cop, she had another look that she was weary of him. Yes, the gun on the nightstand was not smart, but then we would not have the drama of what he did with the gun in the future. How many cops on TV have done the same thing? I know we have not had a lot of Chin lately, but his time will come, and I love Catherine, but not being in the last 2 shows was fine. She'll be back and I look forward to that, and to see how Chin gets more involved. Very happy we have seen so much of Kono this year. (Cont.)
The scene where Steve threw a knife like a ninja at a tree, demonstrating it to the Aloha Girls was funny! It was hilarious to see Danny so ticked off that Steve has a different way of setting an example for the children.
That was my thought about Michael Noshimuri. He probably killed someone to frame Kono. My first thought when he went in the bedroom was he was going to kill or kidnap Kono or maybe even his own big bro, Adam. He took Kono's gun off the holster, then put the gun he must of killed or shot someone with in the holster. But keep Kono's gun. I think there's going to be an episode where all of this situation comes to a breaking point where Kono is framed, Adam is kidnapped by the Yakuza cause of his new change, and I get a bad feeling that Kono is going to be killed. The Original Kono in the Original Hawaii Five-O was killed off. So who knows? I hope it doesn't come to that point though.
If I were Chin, I'd start taking action of the Noshimuri situation.
@Lena - Cathrine has been in almost every episode till now, so I guess it's ok to miss one :) This was about Danny, Monkey and Steve camping.
Very enjoyable episode after the two previous disappointing ones. It had plenty of humor, some twists and I could even tolerate Tom Arnold as bad guy. This episode reminded me of season 1 adventure. I'm looking forward for more.
Ok, the last two episodes were easily two of their worst. Between the blatant VS promo last week, and yet another storyline involving children this week--UGH. Enough with the sappy crap!
Also--I'm in agreement with the writer--Kono leaving her sidearm out is bad enough; leaving it out, in a house where a FELON is residing, has to be totally against protocol--maybe even a violation of the guy's probation? Bad form, either way.
Wonder who he shoot or killed to frame Kono but I guess we have to wait till the finale to find out.
The writers had a hard time to write Chin in this one we hardly saw him.
I really miss Catherine!! Thank God she will be back next week.
Thanks Jim for a great Review..
The episode will not make it to my top 10 list it was ok for me.
My thoughts about it.
Come on show Steve is a SUPERSEAL there were easily 3 or 4 opportunities where Lucy was well out of Ron's reach, when Steve should have been able to safely take Ron down. I want the old Steve BACK!!
Really liked the little girl playing Lucy her scene with Steve were cute and she want to marry him when she is grown up awwww your not the only one Lucy. but I was waiting for the moment Steve came back for her like he promised. and I loved the Aloha Girls leader she had great chemistry with Danny.
Big fan of Danny and Gracie they always are adorable! Didn't know Danny finally found a decent house was great to see it but I was hoping uncle Steve would joined them in that last scene.
Kono is being naive I get she trust Adam and that he is willing to change but to assume Micheal will do the same is silly. Why leaving your gun on a nightstand when you just met the guy. Wonder who he shoot or
