Hawaii Five-O > Hawaii Five-0 Review: Rumor Has It > Comments Page 2
I agree with Allie, this was a great ep, and I loved Max's crush on Rumer Willis! So adorable! He went from being my least favorite character to being a favorite, though he's still not as high up there as that hottie Alex O! I LOLed, too, at the naked stoner chase and the interrogation of stoner guy.Really funny stuff, and I loved that Danny took Grace to the VS event and she got to put on makeup with the big girls! I bet that is something she will never forget. I also think that Danno on the couch showing photos of his little girl to the models was sweet. He looked so happy with all that female attention, poor guy probably needs a good roll in the hay, so to speak! I bet that is why he's cranky. I laughed at Steve telling him he had no chance of getting a model's phone number...that was just hilariously understated.
Except for the model storyline, this was a pretty good episode. I agree, how did Alex get even more drop-dead gorgeous? I love that he is healthy and firing on all cylinders. His scene near the end, with C.Thomas Howell was so good.
Loved the final scene with Uncle Steve and Grace. They have great chemistry. When I think back to S1,Ep.2.,with Danny ribbing Steve in the elevator scene,about him having no rapport with children, I have to laugh.
I liked the driving scenes with Kono and Steve. Not a fan of Max, though.
The weekly scene-that-stretches-all-credibility: the jump from that height would realistically have resulted in broken legs and spinal injuries. Even with that, it must have been done with harnesses and wires.
The VS story was out of place, just an excuse for free advertising for tonight's special. I blame that on CBS. Yeah, Behati should stick to modeling. Glad they didn't make Danny and Steve into drooling 15 year olds. I too questioned Grace at a lingerie show, but it made for a sweet scene with Uncle Steve and Danno. Kamekona and cousin with Steve and Danny's badges and 2 weeks of free lunches another funny bit. Loved the humor sprinkled throughout the episode. Keep it up TPTB.
Overall a fun, entertaining filler ep. Agree with Tess and Diane, so refreshing to get a team ep and not have Catherine and/or Doris forced in. Love the feel and chemistry when it is just the core 4 and recurring characters like Fong and Kamekona. Looking forward to next week!
Enjoyed this ep a lot more than I expected. The team feel, the action, humor and pace made it feel like season 1 which is fantastic. Loved Steve and Kono chasing the "bare assed naked" guy. Laugh out loud funny. Their faces with the tackle and the handcuffs were priceless. Great to see more of Fong too. This season he has been shorted by giving his expertise to Catherine too often. Funny scene with the "hottie" shirt and Kono. Would like to see more of him. Nice to see Max get some time, very sweet story line with Sabrina.
Liked the main story, the twists and turns and good casting with C. Thomas Howell. Not too often someone gets the drop on McGarrett. Enjoyed seeing more of Kono and Chin, though he still got shorted. The smaller bits of Steve and Danny together were fantastic. The beginning with Steve calling Danny Detective Williams, the 'no no no" with the phone numbers and the two with Grace and then Kamekona were all gold.
The VS story was out of place, just
This episode is one of my favorites this season! All the magic ingredients were in the mix. From Max's cute, sweet, quirky crush on Sabrina, to his quick thinking, take charge persona, to the hilarious McKono chase scene with bare-ass naked guy...it was awesome. I was thoroughly entertained by Danno's interaction with the VS models, he deserves some beauty and flirting from beautiful models after all he's gone through this season. I was quite impressed by Behati's acting skills. The crime of the week was exciting with an unexpected reveal. And the appearance of Mr. Fong :) Loved the shirt he made Kono put on :) and he solved the missing head mystery! Steve was awesome as usual with his delivery of one liners. Priceless expressions by Steve when he took naked guy down and when Kono had to cuff him. We got the entire core Ohana with Gracie and Kamekona. Perfect mixture :) :) and Steve is still hot!
I wasn't really expecting to like this one, but I did! I could have done with less (or no) VS sub-plot, but it was not nearly as bad as I feared it might be. I thought the main plot was pretty interesting - enjoyed Max and Rumer Willis was pretty good in her role. Would have enjoyed more Chin - it seems they always have to tie someone to the computer table sadly. I LOVED the pairing of Steve and Kono - I was not expecting that much of them together and it was a real treat! They are very alike and it is pretty cool to see them working together - I would like more of that, and while they are mixing it up, I also always enjoy Chin and Danny paired up as well. I think it is good to mix it up! This episode, for all of its' drama had a lot of humor in it and we don't get that nearly enough. It made me happy to watch and that's good enough for me. Can't wait for next week - Noshimori Bros!!
Well the episode was so so. Not that good not that bad. I like Steve and Kono interaction but the VS product placement I hate it. The model plot was poor and bad for me and those models better keep modeling than acting. Behati answer about why fans admire them was lame. The product placement was ridiculously bad. We have enough with the Chevy product. Why H50 insists on putting product placements on the show very often (The Hilton, Chevy, Hawaiian Airlines) I do not get it. As far as I see I do not see other cop shows doing the same. Maybe because brands are not interested to market their products thru a TV show rather to do it somewhere else.
Wow I loved this episode. The McKono episodes are great. Even though I like Steve and Danny together its very refreshing seeing McKono together. As for Max took me by surprise, but pleasantly that he has a girlfriend. Would love to see this go further. I'm not really a Cath and Steve fan. I just don't feel she fits with him. Just saying. Not seeing her really doesn't effect me. However I do like Doris. You really don't know whether to strangle her or except her back in Steves life, but I think theres alot more to her, and its coming soon. As for Danny I thought this was refreshing also. He was HAPPY. Not his old grumpy side. And as we can see hes coming out of that more and more. All and all me to no complaints.
This was a nice filler ep, although such blatant product placement with the VS models was a little too sickly-sweet for me. Smiley Danny is nice, but angsty Danny is much better for me! Did enjoy how Danny manipulated Steve into getting to stay with the models while Steve had to work the real case! I did get intothe main crime of the week! Didn't see the whole "convince a fellow cancer patient who just happens to be an ex-assassin to kill me while I attempt to save a "victim" from a fake bank robbery so I can die a hero in my estranged daughter's eyes" coming, at all! Best part? The action scenes of course! Bare-assed stoney running through the neighborhood and Kono's digusted "Fair? This is fair? Hands behind your back...and keep your legs closed!" comments. Okay, I admit, Kono and Steve have some good moments together! Max and Sabrina take the cake this week! Bring back Sabrina soon, show - she really humanizes Max! All in all a solid ep, good filler, bad product placement.
Enjoyed this one. Any episode without Doris or Wo Fat is an improvement imho. Naked chase was funny for prop placement alone. Sure VS was a commercial but those beautiful gals at least kept crankypants Danny at bay.
I know many people are tired of seeing Doris. I believe that we are suppose to dislike Doris because I bet peter idea of Doris is that one, viewers to hate her, because of that things she did in the past and lie to her kids. We are not suppose to like her. As much as there are times when Doris character really p**s me off I believe her character is important to know more about Wo Fat and the ties she has with him and if there is any link to Steve dad murder, who knows!! Remember that Wo Fat is a character that will stick for a while
the december 3rd episode of hawaii five-o was great Max having a secret girlfriend that nobody at work knew about!! way to go Max&sabrina!! these two would make a great super couple on Hawaii five-o!! the mystery about how the robbers were headless that was great& how charlie explained it to Kono!! the stalker was a great case for the models! Kamekona & his friend impersonating Steve& danny & how he negotiated a deal that was hilarious!! how two men that were the same age could meet at a cancer treatment center & hatch a secret plan with the bank,along with his ex& little girl was touching .. but when daddy pays someone so you can redeem yourself in a dishonest way is below the belt for any father!! kudos to the entire five-o task force &max as well!!
ditto what Tess said! my thoughts exactly. and i thought c thomas howell was great.
Yes, Yes!! Just when you think Alex O'Loughlin couldn't possibly get even more handsome than he already is.... well, he sure as heck just keeps getting
better and better, and......etc....and the guy can act!!! I mean how can you find anything wrong with this show when you have Alex - he's 'top drawer' --
I'm also in favor of seeing a little more of Catherine -- they are great together and do the old "lovey thing" perfectly --- And please stop barking about Doris...you must know by now she is critical to the upcoming storyline surrounding WoFat....this week's episode was excellent -- couple of storylines going on at the same time -- don't know about you, but I found it interesting, exciting, looking forward to lots more of this fantastic
well, i enjoyed the show too. obviously a plug for VS show tonight, but... i don't think there is a straight man alive who minds being around half naked, young beautiful, if too skinny, women. also, you guys are way harsh on mom mcgarret and catherine. i like them both! any personal relationship is interesting i think, or more interesting than formulaic police drama. max kind of bugs me, but. just too geeky for me. and yes, alex does look even better than he did before, if that is possible...
Good point denise--a 9-year-old girl has no business at a lingerie fashion show and Danny letting her get made up wasn't the smartest parenting move.
Any episode without Doris and Catherine is great in my book. Can't stand either of them. They're both totally useless, and they just detract from the team chemistry that makes this show.
Loved Danny with the models, and thought they did great with their roles. Loved Steve leaping out of the window without even looking, LOL. Loved Grace with Danny and uncle Steve at the end. Kono was fun. Not enough Chin, as usual, but loved Che Fong. The main case was silly, but after all the boring and stupid Shelburne tedium, this was really, really enjoyable.
I agree with Tuki. It was so evident that the storyline with the VS models was a lame attempt to grab young male viewers to raise their demo up. It was out of place in the episode and just plain dumb. I felt bad for Scott because they made him look like a teenager drooling instead of a grown man with a child. The models couldn't act and sorry, they looked emaciated, not attractive. CBS wanted to promote their VS show for tonight.It didn't work and the ratings dropped back down one million viewers and back to a 2.2 demo. The ratings continue low. They feel better when you see 9 million viewers, until you compare them with the decent ratings they used to get at 10-12 million viewers in previous seasons. The viewers who came from Castle when it was not on last week either returned to Castle OR watched the special instead. And the special won by a landslide because it had a demo of 2.8 which is far more important to the advertisers who pay for the show than the # of viewers. And the # of v
Continued good news with the ratings. H50 won the time slot with 9.15 million viewers to 9.0 for a Blake Shelton Christmas special on NBC with Castle last at 8.4 without its big lead in from Dancing With The Stars.
Okay, guess my age will show, but what was Grace doing at the fashion show. Not for little girls. The whole VS part was one big commercial. They may not be jumping the shark yet, but they're getting close. Can't stand the Doris story line, like the actress though. Settle these mommy issues now.
So glad we didn't have to see Doris again don't like her story line at all. The show was nice. I enjoyed it very much.
Fairly entertaining episode. The Victorias Secret plug was pretty shameless, but also amusing. Episodes without the extraneous characters (Doris, Catherine) just flow better - it's more of the old rhythm and dynamic that worked so well, and nothing feels forced. Although, I do find it odd that they start a story and then forget about it for a few episodes (are we done seeing Mary and Doris rebuild their relationship?).
I give it a C.
I am sorry but the side model story did nto wow me starting with the main titles when you can see a model coming out of the water. It blew the entire episode. Those models cant act, the speaking roles were terrible. and Peter said that Behati was amazing according to a tweet I read, he must have been high or something when he said that.
The entire VS plot was forced and unnecessary because that was only to promote the VS fashion show tonite it was torture. Danny looked like a teenager around those models. For the first tiem I did not like Danny here, he looked stupid.
That whole storyline of a staker for the models was to me seem like a teenager boy wrote it.
I like the interaction between Steve and Kono.
We could see finally the human side of Max which is good.
The naked running guy? Really? that was a lame scene.
What could have been a good episode the VS plot really blew it all. Once again the show endorsing products just right there.
This was a good episode. I would rate it as 4.5 out of 5, just because we are seeing less of Danny. Kono seems to be replacing him as Steve's side kick and while I do enjoy Kono, I prefer Steve and Danny like they have done all series long except the last 3 episodes.
Seeing Danny and Steve around models was super funny, Katherine is just a pretty and they are not gaga when she is around. I guess put the word model with a girls name and guys lose it. :)
I too think the best line went to Kono! That whole chase seen with her, Steve and bare ass naked guy was super funny! 2 more episodes before winter break!
Side note: I have always thought Alex was hot, and this season now that he is healthy he is hotter than ever!
Fairly good episode, but I'm wondering with this new relationship with Max and Sabrina, are you going to play it out or is she going to just disappear like other characters (i.e. what happened to Adam)? When can we expect another appearance from Wo Fat? The custody of Grace? Nothing ever seems to get answered or talked about. You shouldn't start storylines if you're not going to play them out.
