Steve was missed, but if you did not like the episode, it was not because any of the other characters did not do an excellent job in his absence. As I said before Alex is the lead and there is not a show without him, but for 2 episodes I think they will do just fine. Last night was very entertaining, loved Max.
Scott plays a great Danny. People who keep harping on the character because in their opinion he is harsh, don't seem to understand, that is what his role is, the sarcastic, one liner, best buddy to Steve, compassionate father, and loyal friend to all. Tell me this is not what he portrays. He was the one worried about Steve, he kept calling, but Steve won't pick up, he was the same worrier in episode 2.10. His sarcasm is what makes the character, but his compassion not only with children but with all people shows through. I don't understand the body language comment. He showed compassion for a woman who's daughter was just killed, how could anyone not see that he felt for her, putting himself in her place with his own daughter. Remember Grace was kidnapped. I hope they never change what the Danny character is, its perfect for the show and a great actor protrays him perfectly.
As for Alex, of course he was missed. They did a great job and I'm sure that the crossover will be good also. There was something missing, Steve, but they have done a great job. All four of our heroes need to be there, but the top dog will always be missed. If it were a permanent thing, then the show would suffer and would not make it through season 3, but this is only for 2 episodes. It's great that the show and CBS did not force Alex to continue and let him get the help he needed before it got too bad. The writers had to scramble to change some things, but I think they did a great job. I don't know when the ending scene was filmed, but Alex looked better. Welcome back Alex we missed you.
I very much liked this episode. I've always liked Max, but I'm glad as Jim G. said they are making him not so quirky. This was a great episode for Masi Oka to shine and I think he did it very well. Nice that the Nerdy guys get to be the hero once in a while. The plot was great, everyone's questions as to Max's last name was answered, and we had a lot of creepy looking guys in this episode. All 3 of the guys in the church looked like serial killers. It was great how the writers showed that it could be all three or anyone of them. Also, the actor in the prison, usually plays the creepy guy, this time he was innocent. Good for Max for cashing in on all he has done for 5-0, and asking them to re-open the case. Danny was fine as lead dog. I don't know why people get so upset at his sarcasm, or are so surprised. That's Danny, that's the character, and Scott plays him well. If he stopped then everyone would start complaining about the lack of quotes and one liners.
I loved this episode. I can't imagine how hard it must have been for Sgt. Renzulli to accept this award, and not being able to tell his wife, that he was not the one who did it. I agree with the reviewer, that the Sgt. was a hero also, he was saving Jamie's life by covering for him, but he also did start to run in the building after it exploded to check on Jamie and the baby. Danny could not say no to an 11 y.o. who just lost his father, how many people could of. But, he actually investigated it and did not just look it over and say it was a suicide. The 11 y.o. should be counted as a hero also for having faith in his father. Great episode.
CONTINUED>>>> impact on everyone, and would not think of herself and other members of the family being in danger. Teenagers are self involved, anyone who has been one and/or has raised one knows that. I was so glad the writers did not have the daughter, or any of the others forgive him. Very few people would have. Like the reviewer said, I'm sure he will find wife number 3 shortly.
Abagail and Marshall are great together, how does anyone not see that. If you were watching the show from the beginning you know that Marshall wants a normal life, at least as close as possible. Yes, he has feelings for Mary, at least in the past he did, but Mary's life is too messed up. Mary and Marshall pefect partners, absolutely, a married couple for life, no way. If thats the way the writers are going, then that's the dumb way to end the season. Hopefully they show some imagination and not put them together to end the show. The current case was great. The guy was a total slime ball. A 14 year old is not an adult. Yes, they understand the world better then we sometimes give them credit for, but none of us can tell the emotions of being ripped from your life, away from your friends, and then find out that your father had another family. Come on! A lot of adults would have done the same thing. A 14 y.o. would be more impulsive, not really realizing the impact on everyone. I can totally see how this would happen. Good for her letting her father know exactly what he had done to her and her mother and brother.
The extended promo for Monday looks great. I love that we are going to get some back ground on Max. I know it will be a little weird without Steve there, but this gives the other characters a chance to come through, and they deserve their chance, they are great actors also. Its looks like an intense episode, can't wait.
This was a great episode. I also, would hope that the baby was Rigsby's and that they don't go that route. Yes, he still loves Grace, and is not in love with Sarah, but I don't see Sarah lying to Rigsby. She did not agree to his proposal, so they did show that she has some sense that Rigsby is not in love with her. I would be very disappointed if it was not his baby. I loved Jane's expression, and yes Simon did that billiantly. He showed happiness, but also the pain of his own loss. I thought the case was well done, loved Jane telling everyone that the principle had cameras in the bathroom. I hope he was forced to remove them, that's just as creepy as a 35 y.o. going after a 16 y.o. and calling it love. Jane said he was not in highschool, does not mean he was not in junior high. I think that he was a trouble maker, but got away with it, thats why he became the con artist that he was.
@Amazingalex.....I started a new job this week, longer commute, not able to get on line as yet, did not want to push it at work. After a few weeks I'll be able to check in at lunch. You'll hear from me once the last three episodes are shown. I can't give up the H50 club. I saw Moonlight and Three Rivers through netflix. It's great no commercials. Can't wait for the new episode on Monday.
