I agree that the ease that Catherine had hacking into a computer was way too easy. A lot of WITSEC witnesses would be dead if it was that easy. However, I liked this show very much. I agree the opener was better. Many people were complaining about the crime of the week. Well it was there and the core 4 handled it. Catherine out on her own was great, should have eased those that think she is going to interfere with 5-0. Her place right now is clearly helping Steve with figuring out Mama's moves. Loved the blue corvette, and getting info by using a little sex appeal is what you would expect from a crime show. (cont.)
CONTINUED>>>>> I thought DDK was excellent, he finally has a meaty part. I loved it when he shot Delano, although I'm sure there will be some payment for that. It was heart breaking to see him come home to find the chickens in the oven. Sorry Malia is gone, but it does give him a great story line. Not enough of Kono, although I loved it when she jumped on the car, and shot Toothpick through the windshield. I'm glad Adam was there to save her. Still like this relationship, although I'm sure there will be some complications. It's definitely more interesting then Kono/Fong.
I thought it was a great episode. I'll worry about the ratings once we have a few episodes in. I think it will pick up. I thought the helicopter bit was over the top, although I did laugh at it. I also laughed when I saw it in a Bond movie. I didn't care for the Boo Boo comment. Catherine was great. I'm glad to see them show her as kick ass, for real, not just say it and not show it. I like Christine Lahti's portrayal of Doris. I think she played it just right. I'm not happy with Doris, I think she could have handled things better. Also, they had Steve say his father was looking for Doris' killer for 20 years which we knew before, but what I don't understand is why would she tell Joe White and not her husband. I like the what the character brings to the show, but right now not liking her much. I loved that Danny did not trust her. The cargument was good, but where does she come off telling Danny how to conduct relationships? I truly hope Wofat is not Steve's 1/2 brother, that would be over the top. They did not say that in the show, so I'm still hopeful, but Doris and Wofat not shooting each other means they have some sort of connection.
This episode was outstanding. I love Eric McCormack in this role, shows what a good actor he really is. I really can't say anything more than what others have said. This show is improving, and the writers totally fooled me. I liked that the murder probably through him into a psychotic break that lasted the weekend. But, that we learn at the end, that the murder really did happen. Very nice twists.
I agree with Suzanne's comment. Too many shows drag it out before they make the obvious solution as to if she is her mother. You take a DNA test, what else. If she refuses then you know its a lie. As for Hank not using gloves, as a nurse, I certainly noticed that also. Gloves are infection control for both. The hand washing thing would be boring to watch, we have to assume that he has. As many times as a doctor or nurse has to wash their hands, it would not leave much time for the story. I did like that Hank left his medical bag for the kid, it was a great moment. I do understand the comment that he had nothing to help the patient he was dealing with, unless we are to assume he took the supplies needed. Lots of holes, but its not real life. I agree not the best writing this season, although, I don't think its been as bad some say. I'm still watching.
I thought this was an incredible episode. As I was watching it, I was thinking of what I would say here. But, you said most of it already. I agree with your review totatlly, I loved Sanchez in this, and also loved that they are showing Provenza dealing with not being the top person. No matter what the character or actress of Raydor does, you are always going to have people who are going to be critics and not give the character a chance, I call it the Brenda syndrome, and they can't get over it. I loved Brenda and she made the show, but its time to move on. These characters are changing and adjusting to a new leader, as is expected. I love that Rusty is becoming more understanding, as he sees what Sharon has to go through. The red folder that was handed to Rusty, that they were going to go over at dinner. Could that be a petition for adoption?Does anyone have any other ideas? Great episode.
Jen....I don't recall telling you how to feel. My point was, (and by the way I did not point anybody out) all the questions aren't answered yet, thats the point. People are complaining because they don't know one thing or the other. We all have questions, they aren't going to answer them in a promo. Thats the whole idea of a cliff hanger. Unless they published the script and I missed it, how does anyone know? Give them a chance to answer the questions, then complain. I guarantee all the answers won't be in the first episode either. There have comments by others that have said season 3 will be just as bad as season 2. How do they know? I don't believe in crystal balls.
I liked the episode. I like Divya and Rafa. A character needs to grow and change. Is anyone really the same all their life? I think that would be boring. I like Hank and Harper as well, Jill is gone, get over it. The connection between Paige and Fiona was a great thing. I too loved that the mother/daughter was more to real life, and well acted by both. I thought this was one of the better episodes. I was surprised by the biological mother showing up so soon, but it was spread over the entire country because of the campaign. She could probably put 2 and 2 together. Is she there for money? Who knows how they will play this.
I enjoyed this show. I agree that the Closer was better, and Kyra Sedgewick was the main reason. But, this show is making its way. It can't be the exact same. I think Capt. Ryder is what she should be. Some people don't like that she does not show the different expressions that the Brenda character did, but its not the same character. People need to get over that. I have to admit, I did not like Rusty, but he seems to be showing a little more humanity. Afterall, anyone who has raised a teenager knows its no picnic, and Rusty did not have a stable up bringing, so I'll give him a break. I love Michael Weatherly, I watch NCIS as well, he plays his characters perfectly. It was humorous and we need to see that once in a while. I'm still watching.
How can you tell from one line in the promo that the whole story was told. This is going to go on for a while, we aren't going to get all the answers at once. Of course she is going to say she did it to protect her family, as did John McGarrett, no shock there. Mama McG's choice probably does not make sense to us in the real world, but this is a TV program. It's entertainment, you have the right to like it or not, but don't think that all choices in a TV show are going to make sense to you. If you are entertained is that not what you watch TV for? It's going to be a great season, for the millions of people who don't pick everything apart.
