Oh, I definitely enjoy Hawaii Five-0; it's a lot of fun, even when the stories aren't necessary up to logical snuff. Chi McBride is an entertaining actor, and Grover and McGarrett play off each other very well. I do miss McGarrett and Danny's constant carguments, though.

They don't even mention whether he survived the vehicular manslaughter attempt or not; in either event, Amber seems surprisingly unaffected by the fact that she (might have) just killed her abusive husband! I don't know about you, but I'd probably be a nervous wreck after everything that happened.

Dreamrose

Ah, thank you for the clarification!

As a reviewer, it's my job to give my honest opinion about an episode. The comment you mention is not a criticism directed at Alex O'Loughlin, but a complaint against the writing and/or editing department. If we, the viewers, are supposed to believe that Steve is a trained, experienced, and professional SEAL, he should not have given in so swiftly to Agent Millford's pleading to stay on the case. The fact that he did made him look like a total pushover, the way I saw it. I normally enjoy Hawaii Five-0 when I get the chance to watch it, and I had no intention to "trash" this particular episode; if you believe that I was overly harsh in my assessment, that's absolutely your prerogative.

Heh, I certainly don't expect for everyone to agree with me over everything! That would make for really boring discussions, don't you think? I was surprised that Amber actually ran over her husband with the car, so they do get points for that.

I guess that piece of wood was conveniently sub-par! ;-)

Dreamrose

You're absolutely right! I hang my head in shame for not picking up on that myself and choose to blame how tired I was yesterday.

I agree that there are off-days for pretty much everything. I normally enjoy Hawaii Five-0 quite a bit! I gave a good marks for the last episode I reviewed, for instance. Normally, I'm having so much fun that I ignore most of the plot issues. This episode was just too much.

Dreamrose

You're very welcome! It's my pleasure to stand in for Amanda. I'm not going to complain too loudly about a man putting his family before his career, despite how much we love him on this show. And I do think that Danny's relationship with McGarrett is the most interesting and dynamic in the series! As I mentioned in the review, I do like Melina Kanakarades. Take this how you will, though, but in this episode, like in CSI: NY (Season 2 Episode 21), her character was knocked out, tied up, and victimized. If I noticed this rather disturbing similarity, surely others did. I was curious about the seemingly almost total lack of Chin Ho Kelly in this episode. He was hardly there at all!

I completely agree that what they did was vigilante justice. But in my prior comment, I wasn't referring to the *legality* of what they did.
