(new) Hawaii Five-0 on CBS

the new Hawaii Five-0 on CBS


Steve and Junior are hanging at home, when the doorbell goes. Junior answers it, then disappears. Kidnapped? From his own doorstep?! Actually, and even less plausibly, he’s been recalled by the Navy SEALs for a mission which is so incredibly urgent he couldn’t be spared ten seconds or so to say goodbye.

But there’s no time to ponder that, because Junior is being deployed to Nigeria to capture or kill a high value target. Who might or might not be holding Joe White as a hostage. Well, as soon as Steve hears that he insists on tagging along, which allows the show to fully indulge its military fetish, with everything from camouflage face paint to arcane jargon (“Center peel!”) and hand signals. It’s a complete suicide mission, of course, for anyone except the Big Kahuna, who fills in any available spare time by flashing back to a time when Joe rescued him from certain death.

And the other plot is just as good, in its own way. Gerard Hirsch (Willie Garson, forever Mozzie from White Collar) is cleaning a house after a murder, when he spots two artworks on the wall which he thinks were looted by Nazis during World War Two; and, as the victim’s husband’s grandfather was a German émigré, it all kind of fits. A magnificently grumpy Grover tries to keep Hirsch and Kamekona away from the case, sarcastically proposing to them that they should become police officers, while he and Tani serve prawns and clean crime scenes. (Cue quick dream sequence, in which Kame and Hirsch are in uniform taking part in a shootout.)

But Hirsch is determined to help. Could, he is asked, the paintings be fakes? “I was a master forger in a previous life”, he replies drolly, stopping just short of winking at the camera. (But provoking a squeal of glee in at least one viewer, who loves his meta and his White Collar.) He will in due course answer that question and solve the murder, just about walking off with the episode in doing so. I loved every single moment of this, so credit where due: the story was by Alex O’Loughlin; and the teleplay, of course, was by Zoe Robyn, who never lets the Five-0 viewers down.

Hawaii Five 0- McDanno BannerTitle: You Fell Victim To Your Own Denial
Author: bergann
Canon: Hawaii Five-0
Pairing: Steve McGarrett/Danny Williams
Rating: Teen [PG]
Word Count: 4,738
Summary: “What, are you assholes not only idiots who beat up innocent women, you’re homophobic now too? Fuck it, I’ll make sure all your pals in prison hear how you got arrested by gay cops. It’ll be a great bedtime story.”

Recommendation: I love the ‘everyone can see it except the narrator/point of view character’ trope and this is a hilarious example.

Recommendation #20

Hello – hello my little faces and have a lovely Sunday. The hiatus from Hell ( ’cause it’s Summer Time ) it’s here and I’ll do my catch up on the shows that I’m behind. Not sure what I will write, probably some episode will be really shocking… If not, my job will be very easy… Anyway. Let’s see what I watched this week.

Cloak and Dagger ( 1×01 & 1×02 ) ** new series **
Ok, truth be told, I wasn’t sure if I will start watching this series. But, I decided to watch the first two episodes that aired last week and I would see how it would goes. Let me tell you that it’s better than I thought. Ok, it is only on the begging but I have a feeling that it will be a really nice show. I like that the two main characters met as kids at first and now, as teens, have to figure out what’s going on between them. I also like when they can “see” the visions and that it’s not the typical story of the rich white girl and the unprivileged black guy. I look forward to watching the next episode. I hope that the series will keep being better and better by episode. Fingers crossed people… fingers crossed.

The Bold Type ( 2×01 & 2×02 )
My favourite tv girls are back!! It was a nice two hours premiere. And as always, so many real-life problems were the centre of the two episodes. Can’t wait to see what the future episodes will bring to them. ( Time for a little shade now )… I hope that Freeform will not cancel this amazing show as well as they did with Shadowhunters.

Hawaii five-o ( season 8 )
I finally finished the marathon!! It was an awesome season ( as all of them ), we had the opportunity to see Catherine again ( I ship her with Steve so much ), even if it was only in one episode… The new guys, Tani Rey ( Meaghan Rath ) and Junior Reigns ( Beulah Koale ) are really good. I miss Kono and Chin, of course, bad it wasn’t as bad that I thought that it will be. My crush on Adam Noshimuri ( Ian Antony Dale ) grows every day even more and I can’t wait to see on the next season what they have in store for us on his story. You see, we left the show the moment that Tani told Junior that she found a gun in Adam’s house and they believe that he killed Noriko, his half-sister.

12 monkeys ( 4×01, 4×02 & 4×03 )
I’m not behind… I haven’t left episodes and doing a catch-up… The season just has begun! A four-week event airing episodes like that is one of the reasons that I adore this show. ( Unfortunately, it’s its last season. ) Olivia being a bitch as always and Jennifer her beautiful crazy self. Katarina, in order to save everyone, does one last time travel to the future, leaving Deacon unfortunately behind. The thing is that they didn’t go to the future after all but 3 years ago, a few hours before James’ first trip to the past ( I mean, all the feels ). We saw Ramse again though ( I hate this guy ) but at least back then he was still on our side. Cassie decides to go back to 1971 and kill Olivia while she was still young, but her plan goes to Hell when she finds out that she was pregnant and actually, she never was a victim. Jennifer finds the future James Cole and he tells her when and how she can find “her” Cole. Together, they find the puzzle that she was looking for and Cole is the only one that can solve it. Now, he has a plan to stop this loop that they are trapped in. He only has to go back to Cassie and together, save the world from the Army of the 12 monkeys.

I also watched: Hawaii five-0 ( 25 episodes ), Fear the walking dead ( 4×07 & 4×08 ), The Originals ( 5×06 & 5×07 ), Supergirl ( 3×22 ), The 100 ( 5×06 ), Westworld ( 1×01 ).

Tell me what episodes you watched this week. Which episode liked the most and which not? Did you start watching something new this week? Comment below or on my facebook page. Until next time…

xx Marilita.

Boston wiseguy Tommy Boyle is murdered in his house, which is witnessed by his acupuncturist – who is then killed herself – and her daughter Cammy, who escapes and goes on the run. When Steve and Danny head over to Cammy’s apartment they’re met, to their considerable surprise, by Junior; he is, he says, an old friend, although at least to start with he’s curiously reluctant to discuss that friendship in front of Tani. The suspect pool includes Boyle’s son and a retired German banker, caught on camera having a meeting on the day of Daddy Boyle’s funeral. It’s thinly plotted, but some of Danny’s dialogue is quite funny. As is the scene in which Danny and Steve try to get information out of elderly mobster Jin Leung, as a result of which Danny is required to throw a kung fu fight against Leung’s son, but incredibly resistant to the idea.

A long-term resident of a psychiatric hospital is found murdered, and staff are being reticent. So Jerry goes undercover at the hospital as an orderly – it was presumably a judgment call to soundtrack the cold open with Patsy Cline’s version of ‘Crazy’ – in order to make discreet enquiries with both staff and patients.

Meantime Duke – the straightest straight arrow in the HPD – suddenly breaks bad, Tasing a fellow cop and stealing a key from the evidence vault. Say it ain’t so, Dook? Well, of course there’s a reason: his granddaughter has been abducted by masked men, and they’ve promised to kill her unless etc. etc. He uses the key to open a locker, which has a bag containing around $1m in cash money, but before he can pass it to the abductors he’s robbed by someone else.

Two potentially good plots; unfortunately, neither rises above the stolid. Meantime Tani’s idiot brother Koa has completed rehab and decided to work as a counsellor; and Adam is, presumably, still in the wind.
