(new) Hawaii Five-0 on CBS

the new Hawaii Five-0 on CBS

The body of a private detective, Leighton Prewitt, is found in a lagoon, wrapped in chicken wire and tied to a cinder block. Coincidentally, Danny’s Uncle Vito – Vincent Pastore, Big Pussy in The Sopranos, giving it maximum New Jersey – is on Oahu. But he’s just there to provide some assistance with the restaurant, and to get robbed by a good-time girl. Prewitt’s case is Five-0 by the numbers, with the only weird interlude coming when their search for the killer takes them to a witness who has been committed to a mental institution, one Gregory Isaacs. And no-one – no-one – says “Oh, like the singer? The Cool Ruler?”.

Meantime, Adam is planing to insert Jessie into Hideki’s organisation. This ends with Adam being Tasered, then coming to chained up in a shipping container in the middle of the jungle. Who knew that an ex-Yakuza, who’s never been a law enforcement officer in his life, wouldn’t know how to run an undercover operation?

If you remember, Sam promised that today we would have a post about “future guest stars she would love to see on Five-0”. That was her post, verbatim.

So far, she has come up with zilch. I suggested someone and suddenly, I was asked for a post for the blog. So, here it is. Very professional and very thought out… in the 20 seconds it took to type the above. 🙂

Have you had your thinking caps on? Who would you like to see on Season 9? Do you have a specific actor you would love to watch? Or do you have a character you would like to either see again or to introduce?

I thought of a couple I will throw out there.

First, I loved Jason Dohring and Alex playing in Moonlight together. I would love seeing Jason as a former Navy friend of Steve’s. A friend who (a) is good and doesn’t turn bad; and (b) doesn’t die. I would love a flashback, but have them friends in present day. You know Steve has friends in the Navy and also on the island. It would be fun to see some of them. NOT Dog… I’m not sure how he ended up on there.

My second thought for guest stars are none other than McBear and Captain Lou. I’m sure they could add a thing or two to the ensemble and teach Danny a thing or two about acting.

I know, it’s still a bit early for a wish list for season 9, since we don’t even know yet who will be part of it. I guess, Alex is a pretty sure bet. Anyone else is pure speculation at this point.

But one can wish, so here is my list.

Let us know in the comments what you hope to see next season.

First of all, I wish for more and better crime episodes. One crime, one episode. Stop trying to get three story lines into one episodes, it simply doesn’t work. I wish we would get the team working on just one case per episode.

I hope we will get some awesome action next season. I hope for hand-to-hand combat. They now have two SEALs on the show. Use them. Their stunt team is a capable bunch, I am sure they can deliver awesome action without putting any of the actors at risk.

Get rid of THE most annoying storyline. Shut down that stupid restaurant. It’s not funny, it’s totally unrealistic, and in my eyes, the most annoying part of the show. Just stop it.

If Danny will be in season 9, please stop making him look like a jerk. It’s unbearable. I wish they would write him like a real friend, like a good officer. He’s neither. So, please, change his character, or get rid of him.

Don’t bring back Adam. No more boring stuff. Please?

I hope to see McG senior again. I would love to see William Sadler reprising his role in another flashback, preferable with Steve. I also liked the younger version.

I would like an answer to the question if Steve is still in the reserves? If so, could you please reactivate him for a mission? Or give us one of his last missions before he became the head of Five-0. Anything related to his Navy career would be awesome.

NO more Danny family members. Please, I don’t think I could survive another one of those people. Although, his sister was kind of OK. 😉

Joe White and Doris would be cool to see again.

Alicia as a consultant would be the absolute best. Seriously, it would be awesome to have her on the show for a few episodes over the season.

More Grover with Steve. Please. They are so darn good together. Please write a few stories where they work together, or hang out, or whatever. Anything will be fine.

NO more Grover backstory. That was plenty, and I think we should be done with it. Thank you very much.

That pretty much concludes my wish list. OK, well, not quite. 😉

Yes, I want Catherine back. I don’t want them to jump into a romantic relationship right away, but I want her back so they can work on it. They are still great friends. They still care deeply about the other. I want Steve to have a really great friend by his side, someone who knows him, who gets him. Who knows all his demons. And that person is Catherine. She’s the one. They are not in a position to be ‘together’ right now, but they are still close. And I would love to see her back on the show. Not with Five-0, not even in every episode. I just want her to be there. Because, she is an awesome character just on her own. And Five-0 lacks someone like her big time. So, please bring her back.

That’s it… for now.

Tomorrow, I will make a post about future guest stars I would love to see on Five-0. Think about who you would like to see, and we’ll talk about that tomorrow. Anyone is fair game. But please not on this post, hold your horses until tomorrow. 😉

The confirmation for season 9 is just in. 🙂

Congratulations to everyone involved in the show. Whatever you think of the one or other episode… nine seasons is an enormous accomplishment.

Personally, I am very happy to get another season. Of course, now we need to get the news that the right people have signed on for the new season. 😉
