This spinoff shows some promise. As I recall the pilots for NCIS and NCIS LA didn't bring down the house and needed some fine tuning. However the concept of the team living together 24/7 in this high-tech unit is going to require a mega dose of suspension of reality. I don't know if aircraft exist that could transport this unit. Second once it gets where its going its going to need a power source, a source of water, and finally and most important a sanitary hookup or else they need to bring along their own "honey wagon".
I wasn't expecting a lot from this episode and I wasn't disappointed. The promo for this was Catherine goes undercover in roller derby and guest starring "Dog" Chapman. Very low expectations. But props to the writers for having Danno mention roller derby icon Gwen "Skinny Minnie" Miller of the LA Thunderbirds. Also watching Steve and Mom row the outrigger all I could think of was the closing credits of the classic 5-0 with guys paddling the outrigger. Not good news on the rating front 11.2 million for Castle 8.8 for H50 and 3.5 for the finale of Deception. ABC won the night with the return of Dancing with the Stars. Next week The Voice and Revolution return on NBC.
Latest ratings: Castle 9.7 million. H50 9.0 Deception 3.2. ABC swept the night for a change.
Enjoyable light episode. This must be H50's Valentine's Day episode with all the bromance. Danno and Steve are supposed to be opposites (like all "buddy cop" shows) Steve is the over the top take no prisoners guy and Danno is the levelheaded lets think about it guy but the writers go too far with Danno and he comes off as whinny. As for Catherine she should know that sensitivity is not Steve's strongpoint. He's not a hearts and flowers guy. Again the writers really haven't found a niche to put her in. A couple other comments. I'm a Cowboy fan like Catherine but I wouldn't be caught dead in a Tony Romo jersey after his performance against the Redskins. Also Duke apparently made a very fast recovery after being shot by the Hookman. Duke has to be in his 50's (Dennis Chun is 61) and you don't heal very fast at that age.
Forgettable episode. Case of the week-fight club theme has been done to death(sorry couldn't help it) .Doris substory- Saw it coming a mile away. Steve should have hired Tony Archer. Ratings continue with little change. H50 9.5 million, Castle 8.9, and Deception 3.3. CBS swept the night again.
If you look at the various blogs/discussion groups about H50 the one common theme throughout is the gunshop scene. Just about everyone has an opinion.Stepping aside from gun control angle, it was stupid of Danny to harass Norm. From all he knew Norm was a concerned citizen who called in to offer information. If you are a police officer and someone is volunteering information you dont resort to badgering and name calling.
Latest ratings. H50 9.6 million Castle 8.8 Deception 3.1. Last week the rerun of the Ed Asner episode beat a Castle rerun and a new Deception 6.3 to 6.0 to 3.7
Great episode. The producers did a super job paying homage to the original and at the same time updating it to today. I do think J.J. Armes was more menacing than Peter Weller and the car chase was better in the original without the quick edits. Good thing they had Kono bring down the sniper instead of Danny who did it in the original given the current Danno's marksmanship. Only negative the ridiculous debate(?) between Norm and Danny which was silly. Hawaii has one of the strictest gun laws in the country. Danno should have known this.
@zia He plays Nicky"The Kid" DeMarco the owner of a nightclub. His mentor was Frank Sinatra. He sings the old Sinatra song " I've Got You Under My Skin." as well as help 5-0 with a case. The next new episode #15 on 2-4-13 should be great. It is a remake of one best episodes from the original called Hookman the opener of the 6th season.They filmed in the original locations. I recommend anyone go to one of sites like Hulu and others and download it. Its worth the watch.
For all you Magnum PI fans Larry Manetti will be a guest star in episode 17.
