Hawaii Five-O > Hawaii Five-0 Review: Man Date Mandate > Comments Page 4
As others have pointed out, Steve did not blow Catherine off to be with Danny. He'd already made plans and a commitment to other people, so it would have been rude and inconsiderate had he said "screw you guys, I'm not going with you any longer." Now, I would have preferred it had he later talked to Danny and Kamekona privately and asked if they'd minded him bowing out, but yes, this episode was all about the bromance.
Also, as others have also mentioned, Cath had no idea that Steve's arm had been dislocated. It looks to me like you're one of those who watches Hawaii 5-0 with a jaundiced "anti-Cath" eye. Maybe you shouldn't be reviewing this show at all?
As to the crime of the week - it was weak. I couldn't have cared less. The dialog had some nice laughs, though, and frankly that's one of my favorite parts of this show. I also enjoyed seeing Larry Manetti as "The Kid." I actually laughed out loud when he clocked the guy trying to run away from McGarrett and Danno. The "old gu
enjoyed the episode. the mcdanno bromance scenes were great and i thought danny was hilarious and endearing. the crime wasn't terribly exciting but i love a little pat monahan!
on another note - episodes like this are precisely why some people (myself included) object to the addition of characters like catherine and lori. their presence has no real purpose. i like catherine, but i find myself cringing at her scenes lately. and i find it odd that she is just a naval officer yet apparently has more resources to things like intel, surveillance and even football tickets, when steve is friends with the governor and runs a task force with 'full immunity and means'. not buying it.
Why can´t Cath be in H50 episodes as Steve´s girlfriend? Does she really need another reason for screen time? I like Cath and think she fits in the story lines much better than Lori ever did last season.
I like when the buddies (Danno and Steve) have fun and banter, but with Danny gloating, Steve chosing D instead of Cath to go to the game with, that just looked stupid. Also felt it was odd for D to stay by Steve´s side in the hospital, because of such a minor injury. At least the girls had fun at the game :)
Horrible episode. I've had my fill of the moronic Steve/Danny bromance. The characters become more childish and annoying every time they interact. Why the writers dragged poor Michele Borth into this story only to make her character act like a doormat is pathetic. Scott Caan seriously grates on my nerves. Steve and the clueless boyfriend routine is doing Steves character no favours. He just comes off as a jerk. Catherine needs to dump him so the writers don't have to worry about her interferring with their beloved bromance. Please give us more Chin and let Steve act like he used to in season one.
Catherine doesn't bug me as much as Lori did, but I don't like how they just keep shoving her into episodes and plotlines when she really has no reason to be there. We haven't seen her to her job all season, she just joins up with 5-0 or pops up randomly. I have no issue with McGarrett picking Danny over her; they got their tickets first and Catherine's were last minute. The football stuff was fine for me, although they seem to heavily advertise things that only take up a few minutes of the actual episode. LOVED that McGarrett is a Redskins fan, although his choice of Tom Brady as the top quarterback is questionable. I'm actually kind of glad McGarrett got hurt chasing down the Train frontman. He always does those crazy stunts and then just walks away. Danny at the end was adorable. Oh and the people who complain Danny whines too much...umm are you new to the show? Season 1 was filled with Danny whinning about everything. The sun, the sand, the lack of people wearing ties, etc.
Lightweight show at best , for the typical attention challenged commercial network viewer ....but nice cinematography , the best part of the show ...
Good epi. Not into football either, but it was a fun backdrop for the story, and thumbs up to Arian!
Yo, Reviewer Gabbrielle, Cath did not know Steve was injured. How would she know? He blew her off to hang with Danno, so kind of a karma thing he got hurt and missed the game I think. And I've been hoping to see Cath and Kono pal up, so good on show! The girls had great not-seats. And Cath was awesome to get a gift for Danno. Cath is a regular on the show, but not a star. So I think they are showing her just right, as they do Max. 3 weeks off now is going to suck though.
During the a chat Peter had several weeks ago online and people could ask him question. He hinted many things that it may happen in the future episodes, I dont know if in 6 remaining episodes of the season, he will have time to cover all of them, I dont think so and maybe many things will wait for the 4th sesason to be covered or find out. He even said that now that Catherine is back to the Enterprise we will see her working there but still she will manage to help the team. Hello??? That has not happened at all.
It looks forced and not natural. Either they make them break off their relationship to see some arguement at least on those 2 or polish it in a different way, but so far more than half of the episodes of this season, Michelles role is not what I hope she will be since the beginning of this sesason, I thought of her different. I been dissapointed. Practically she has been there to do favors to Steve and Steve to let her down in ocassions, she had only helped a bit to the team. I know she was supposed not to be part of the team I do get it, but even as not part of the team she is not doing a good job. Maybe in the 4th season we see her really working in The Enterprise as the Naval Officer, because this season it seems her job mainly has been to be Steve gf and focus less on her job in the Navy and more into having aa realtionship with Steve. I guess the writers or Peter intent this season for Catherine was that focus on her relationship with Steve.
Im not agaisnt Steve having a romanti
I could not believe it when I saw Larry Manetti! I was just thinking of him! It was a great surprise. I have not seen him since.... you know where!
The bromance is going strong. I like when Catherine just pops in. Let's see her and Kono work a case. Law enforment sisterhood to the rescue! Fun show and Peyton Manning is tops in my book. Don't like Brady or the Cowboys!
Steve did not blew Catherine off, he alreayd made plans to go with danny to the game, before Catherine told him she too had tickets. She was a bit dissapointed sure as she did not expect that but how could Steve knew that Catherine also liked football, maybe he did not know she was much into it. But I do agree Steve is a lousy boyfriend, he does not know how to treat a woman, which is why I believe Steve and Cath relationship should need improvement by the writers, the writers are not doing a very good job writing a relationship in fact they do not know how to write their women well. Cont...
I thought this was a very good ep, I enjoyed it. I know nothing about U.S. football so all of that went over my head. I'm still very conflicted about Catherine, but my favorite part of this ep was Kono and Cath at the game. I would like to see more of Kono and Cath. I think it would be awesome to see them work a case together, something like the NCISLA crossover last year, two agency's working together on a case. Just a thought.
I liked the episode, Arian Foster did a decent job for a "rookie" actor. As for the bromance, well, I'd like to thank DIRECTV for my DVR. Just like the commercials, it's so cool to be able to blow through the scenes that have the moronic Scott Caan in them. This show has a lot of "pros" with the only "con" being Caan. He should and could be replaced with a fence post. Just my opinion...
This was such a fun episode!!! Cath can't win with you Cath haters you went from Lori to Cath....back off already and stop bagging on her! She never knew Steve was hurt, he never called her and after her gunned the football and re-hurt it she was like what's wrong and he said he needed a doctor...pay attention people!! I noticed the blue/green shirt and think it was an oops moment but didn't affect the storyline. As someone who lived in Hawaii the only NFL you get life is the Pro Bowl and with all the military there they have a big presents. So if you accept one invite and then get a better one you blow off the first invite??? NO a decent person would not do that and the fun part was that her tickets were better than Danno's. Nick was good but this isn't a Magnum remake, we don't need Selleck on the show. You guys keep putting down Danny but your really just putting down Scott the Chelsea crap is over move on. Danny is the same as always and has opened up a lot and he is from t
Please get rid of Catherine. She has just turned out to be a person who wears few clothing instead of a military person. I was glad Danny stayed with Steve. I didn't like them making fun of his missing Peyton Manning. Not a great episode
Cont.... Loved seeing Larry Manetti, playing a Nick instead of Rick as he did in Magnum. One of my favorite shows of the past. I'm still holding out hope we see Tom Selleck. They left it open for Larry Manetti to come back as he was Senior McG's friend, and probably an informant. Just like his Magnum roll, only much older. Nice stop by the older Nick, knowing he could get him with a short cut across his establishment.
Well we are off for the next 3 weeks, not too many episodes left.
Hi Gabrielle, thanks for the review. I'm a football fan, but I understand not everyone is. I liked this episode very much. I do have to agree that Catherine was already at the game, and afterall it was a separted shoulder, painful, but not exactly life threatening. I was impressed that they showed Danny staying with Steve. I don't think Steve dumped her, he has already said he was going with Danny before he knew Catherine had tickets. Even though her tickets were actually sideline passes. Catherine was very thoughtful for getting Danny a signed football by his favorite player, and I was glad to see she took Kono.
Chin has been producing a local theater play which will end on March 2nd, which is why we probably have not seen much of him in the episodes.
The last time we saw Catherine talk to Steve was an hour before kickoff when he and Danny were on their way to the blonde con artist's home. She told him she would look for him at half time. Did I miss the scene where she found out Steve injuried his shoulder and then proceeded to blow him off to go to the game? It looked like she didn't know until they were on the football field. And I thought it was a very sweet gesture for Cath to get the autographed football for Danny. Shows that she cares about Steve's friends.
I have to say while I enjoyed this episode I was disappointed in Steve the boyfriend and how the writers have written him lately. What happened to the guy that planned a romantic picnic at sunset on the beach? Or arranged to have his reserved training on the Enterprise to have some extra time with Catherine because he knew that was the kind of Valentine gesture she would like? I'm not saying he shouldn't have made plans to attend the Pro Bowl with Danny (Kono was planning on going with Chin and Duke and not Adam) but Catherine was so excited when she showed him the tickets I would have like to see Steve a little more conflicted and Danny offering up the advice for Steve to go with Catherine. I am a fan of the bromance, have been from the start of the show, but I think they've been laying it on a little too much lately.
As for Catherine being a jerk? Really? Did I miss the scene where she knew that Steve injuried his shoulder and she proceeded to blow him off and go to the game anyway
Did anyone notice that Steve's top changed from a blue shirt and tshirt to a green polo and then back and then again in this episode? wonder why.
I loved the episode. I think it deserves to be mentioned that the actor who played Nicky "The Kid" Demarco, Larry Manetti, was one of the stars of that other classic Hawaiian show, Magnum P.I.
This was a solid episode, not as good as previous four but still very entertaining. The story was as simple as possible and Danny wasn't as irritating as usuall. We got to see Kamekona and his cousing plus "survival camp". The only thing I disliked was Steve and Cat, sorry but the show writters do terrible job and it almost seems like Steve and Cat have no common interests. It was realy awkward moment when Steve turned down Cat's invitation to the game, it would nice to have told in advance that he was going with Danny. Also I do miss Danny/Grace interactions. Anybody knows when Tailor Grubbs will be back?
@Gabrielle Moss bad review like always and you are obvious a McDanno fan. When is Jim coming back!!
So you saying Cath is a jerk. First maybe she even didn't know that Steve was in the hospital and second if she would have know she would have run to the hospital to be with Steve. I was extremelly disappointed with Steve.... he just brushed off her invitation like that. I felt sorry for Cath because she was so hype about the tickets. Not a good move, and instead of saying he would have the pre-game thing with her, he just invited her for something that he had already planned with Danny and apparently Kamekona Steve always puts Danny first I am sick of the McDanno relationship, Steve is the worse boyfriend EVER!! Good for Cath to take Kono with her, their tiny scene was the best part of the episode. Hope Cath breaks up with Steve and move on then Steve will realize what he let go and took for granted. Yes Steve get ready to be very jealous!!
Worst episode of the season. Danny has become the most irritating character on the show and when Steve is around him he becomes as irritating. Back to the usual predictable story where the 2 stooges arrest the first guy they meet. Catherine's character has become a joke with Steve as usual never having any time for her. The writers should let Steve and Danno walk off into the sunset and let Chin and Kono take over. Best part of the episode was Kono and Catherine waving from the pitch. Catherine's needs to dump McGarrett and find someone who knows how to treat a woman.
I know she is there to be his partner, she understands Steve and bring out the softer side of him, that is good. Im not saying Steve cant have a gf, but I was expecting her role to be more 50/50 see her in her job and seeing her as Steve gf.I wanted to give her a chance and be open about her after a few episodes of this season b ut so far, im a little let down on her role, I thought she was going to work differently. I mean to see a real relationship between Steve and Cathe, ups and dows like any relationship, so far their relationship had been just peachy with no mistakes or errors, just the exception of her lying ot Steve about what happened to h er mother that she had to lie in request for his mom.
