Hawaii Five-O > Hawaii Five-0 Review: I Hate This Place > Comments Page 2
I don't mind unrealistic plots if they are entertaining and the characters compelling, like Chin in Sundays episode, but the characters are becoming boring and far too often just plain annoying and stupid.
One moment the violence is over the top and the next we have a cliched sitcom wtih Steve and Danny acting like immature kids.
What bothers me most lately is that the team seem to break the law whenever they feel like it and act all judgemental as if they are all squeaky clean. They don't seem to care who gets injured once they solve their case. Their actions are hypocrical considering most of them have broken the law themselves with Chin going as far as committing murder. Its becoming harder to route for characters who act like this.
For all you Magnum PI fans Larry Manetti will be a guest star in episode 17.
I'm loving season 3. I wish more people would give it a chance. It's such an entertaining show with a great cast. I find the shows that are too realistic boring. I'd rather watch a helicopter shootout or prison riot any day.
I picked it was Wo Fat from the beginning!
was her twin sister and couldn't understand why the team never said anything, weird, but overall a good episode.
okay wtf is going on here i haven't read the review yet as im only 8 minutes into the episode, but i just finished watching both seasons of terminator the sarah conner chronicles and the woman at the start of the episode is the actress who plays jessie a resistance fighter from the future, ive also been re-watching one tree hill from season one onwards i stopped watching a few years ago but i know that in the next season the black guy at the start of the episode plays a basket ball player named quintin or something like that, and now at about 8 min into the episode the govener is JAMES ELISON an FBI agent on terminator TSCC man this is one crazy episode,
okay just finished the episode it was really good 8.6/10 the only thing that confused/annoyed me was the the afromentioned actress who plays jessie in TTSCC was both the prostitute at the start of the episode who was then strangled and the congress man's assistant who was killed via a sniper and it was never explaind ,i thought it
I thought it was a really good episode! Loved the whole tie thing, those two are so cute together. Only thing that annoyed me was when they were trying to rescue the congressman on the edge of the cliff. If he had just flattened himself to the ground, Danny could concentrate on shooting Wo Fat! Oh well, it was still a great episode!
love all the h5o episodes, best show on tv
Monday's episode of Hawaii 5-O was that Alex's father who played the congressman who got arrested at the end, he looked like an older version of Alex (steve)
does anyone know if dannys ex wife will ever come back??
I preferred Sundays episode by far. Steve and Danny were back to being dumb and dumber, or annoying and more annoying. The custody case was just silly. A few minute speech from Danny and he gets shared custody and Rachel is conveniently absent.
Whose going to take care of Grace when he's at work all day. Strangers instead of her mother. I'm sure a judge would be fine with that.
Missed Adam and Catherine.
I really liked the episode as well. I thought it was more believable than Sunday's (I thought the prison riot and all the guards being taken out was a bit over the top). Yeah, the helicopter shooting scene seemed a bit much as well, but seeing Danny in action was fun. Did anyone notice his socks?? I watched again yesterday and froze the frame when he was grabbing for the congressman....bright blue & green polka dotted socks :) Also, my thought is since Grace can't leave the island, that Rachel will not leave either. She will probably continue to live there part-time and be in Vegas part-time.
I really liked this episode. Wish more people would watch H50.
Had to laugh out loud at Steves, honesty is the best policy. That's hilarious considering the amount of secrets the team have themselves.
Didn't enjoy this as much as sundays episode. Plot wasn't bad but I'm having a problem with the leads of this show, neither are all that compelling and out acted by miles by lesser characters. The Governor made Steve look like a petulant child who acts like a bull in a China shop most of the time. Danny just whines his way through each episode and really doesn't seem to have any aptitude for police work at all. Chin is by far the most believable of the team which made Sundays ep so good and DDK is also the best actor on the show.
The cutody case was laughable. Can't have Rachel there or it may look like she actually cares about her daughter. Custody is not about who loves the child the most, its about the childs best interests and who can offer her the best care. How can Danny do that and how can Grace see her mother if she's not allowed to leave the Island. Does anyone even care what Grace wants. I had to laugh out loud at Steve's . That's hilarious considering he and the team have q
Note to self, don't forget to answer the reviewer's question! Yes, I did recognize WoFat the minute the voice spoke, but I didn't figure out his connection to the case until I realized the campaign manager was lying to the guys. Very interesting WoFat story line! WoFat was sprung from Halawa at the start of S3 to help Frank Delano "get" H5-0. When that didn't go as planned, WoFat become a major fugitive who has lost all his connections (remember, the CIA isn't his "get out of jail" card anymore, they'd just as soon see him "neutralized", too!). So, Wo Fat has to start from scratch in the way he knows, by buying political influence! He's as ruthless as ever, and even more dangerous because everyone wants to kill him! I think his story is getting more interesting rather than tired!
I'm really surprised at how everyone is hung up on Danny being unable to hit WoFat (a moving target) from an unstable platform while trying to pull a wounded man into said rocking helicopter! As one current State Trooper I know said after watching last night: "Not as easy as you would think!" There have certainly been other scenes in this series that were far less believable (remember the "claw?")but just as much fun for me to watch. To each his own, and if reality tv is what you need to have an enjoyable viewing experience, I hope you find it. For me, H5-0 is just fine. I enjoyed this episode just as much, if not more than the Halawa riot the night before. Last night's episode was indeed filmed before the riot episode so no, Chin is not super human. Danny getting flustered in court and Steve attempting to come to his rescue and almost blowing it with the judge was priceless - pure bromance! Gov Denning is on my watch list - I think it's going to work out with him!
Scenery=beautiful....Kono=beautiful....Realism and Story Line.hahahahahaha...
LURRRRRVED Steve ripping the Gov a new one over the surveillance and the lab delay. And for extra grins and giggles, did the folks in the SUV REALLY think that 5-O wouldn't spot 'em?
For those of you get upset when others make negative comments about the show...people are entitled to their OPINIONS, good or bad. That's what these forums are for. Some people are more into the details of a show or the realism, some people like certain characters more than others, everyone likes and dislike different things. If you loved the episode, great! Some people didn't. The point is for everyone to come here and say what they thought about the show, there's no need to judge others' opinions.
To Alisa : About Chin Ho and his injuries. I guess there is a reason why we di not see any injuries on him or any sign of being hurt. It is believed that the order in which the episode was aired was the other way around as i heard the Chin Ho episode was to be episode 3.10 and not 3.13 that way in the following episodes after 3.10 at least the episodes plot could have dealt with his injuries and also could have dealt more abotu Kono's investigation on Adam. I dont know why CBS aired the episodes show in the order it was shown or if it was Peter idea to do that and that is why some people may have lost track following the story.
Just enjoy the episode and give it credit where needed. I was not keeping track of how many bullets Wo Fat got and why he was not even injured or how Danny shooting skills were that he missed Wo Fat. He was in a helicopter in motion where balance was tricky plus he also had to find a way to save the congressman maybe he missed some shots but who cares and why is it so important. Let it go.
Aloha! This episode was preempted by Hurricane Sandy so the story line is slightly out of order. I didn't "see" Wo Fat in the opening scene ... but I spotted Marc D.'s name in the opening credits, so I knew Wo Fat was involved. The producers have created a tough place for the character of Wo Fat - he should be taken out but he plagued Jack Lord/Steve McGarrett for 12 seasons on the original series. So what to do with him? I find that Sang Min has morphed more into the original Wo Fat in being a perpetual pest to the H50 cast.
I enjoy the current H50 despite its jumping the shark moments. Then again, the original had them, too.
@Penny - what's "dreadful" about Grace spending time with both her parents who happen to be divorced?
i LOVED it....was alittle worried about danny losing grace, to his ex-wife....and to the person who said, that NOW grace would be dragged between 2 parents: WHAT THE HELL DO YOU HAS BEEN HAPPENING?....he's had LITTTLE TIME with his little girl, all along....i HOPE, this means he'll get MORE time with her.....i also LOVED that steve wore his DRESS UNIFORM to the hearing...and loved that he stood up and spoke on danny's behalf.
i was also alittle surprised, that he couldn't hit Wo Fat from the chopper....but, it DIDN'T disappoint me in the least.
* i DO wonder, if rachel lost because she wasn't there. *
** i too was surprised to see chin back to work already, after being injured...and NOT showing any signed of being hurt. **
i gave it 5 *****
