(new) Hawaii Five-0 on CBS

the new Hawaii Five-0 on CBS


8.07 Kau ka ‘ōnohi ali’i i luna

Junior and Adam back up McGarrett when a bank heist in progress forces Steve to make a potentially heartbreaking mistake. Also, Adam is forced to face an empty home without Kono.

CBS translated Kau ka ‘ōnohi ali’i i luna to The Royal Eyes Rest Above

This season we were introduced to some new characters, including Steve’s new 4 legged roommate. We decided that Eddie should be in charge of the rating system this season. An exceptional show will have 5 barks, a great one will have 3 barks, a so-so one will earn one bark, an “eh-what-were-they-thinking” will get a whimper and a super turkey will elicit an Eddie growl. So… let the fun begin.

Finally an episode that meets my criteria for spending a few hours on writing a review. 😉 Guess that is kind of a verdict up front? Oh well.

Let’s just dive right in. We start the episode with Junior on a run, and getting almost hit by a car. And, of course, since this is a TV show, the reckless driver and Junior know each other. It’s clear that there is a story about this two, and we will probably learn about it later on.

Next we see Tani going to a house where her no-good-brother is hanging out with some shady characters. Makes me wonder how she knew that her brother would be there, and how she learned about the raid by HPD. Is it normal procedure to inform Five-0 about such things?

Anyway, she warns her brother and the two drive off just before the police arrives. That also makes me wonder why none of the officers was interested in following the two fleeing people. But OK. 😉

H50 - 807-004

After the credits we go to the airport where me meet Steve who is there to pick up Kono and Adam. Of course, we already know that it will only be Adam. I think they did a good job with the explanation why Adam is coming back, and is not staying with Kono.

I mean, think about it. Kono is most likely not staying in one place, so Adam can’t take any job. If he even would get a job in the first place. So, what is he supposed to do while his wife is out there saving the world? Yep, sarcasm here. I think her story is pretty ridiculous. Not that she’s still on the mainland, but how she left during the season 7 finale. Without telling anyone and without even informing her husband or cousin. But that’s really not important right now.

Some people will hate me for what I’m about to say. I am glad that Kono is out of the picture. Chin, too. I wish the actors all the best, but I think it’s a win for H50 that they left. Their stories were boring, uninspiring, and didn’t add much to the show. At least during the last couple of years. So, I said it. I am glad they are gone and that we have two new, fresh characters. Who will hopefully get good storylines.

Junior got a good start, in my eyes. Not so sure about Tani. I like them both though.

But back to Steve, who is always my main focus on the show and in these reviews. Shallow, I now, but I loved the blue shirt. The little light triangle on the side did it for me. LOL

So, he buys two leis in hope to give at least one to Kono. Yeah, Buddy, not gonna happen. After a short greeting they are off to find something to eat, while having a nice conversation in the car. I always said that I liked Adam back when he was the kinda baddie, taking care of his father’s business, kidnapping Joe White. Back then he had potential, and I really hoped he would make a great villain. Unfortunately, he met Kono and the snooze fest began. Kono and Adam were, for me, the most boring couple.

BUT, I like IAD, and I enjoyed Adam in this episode. Still think he would have been better as the villain, but with this version of Adam I can live very well. 🙂

H50 - 807-007

After the brief encounter with the very pregnant ex, Junior keeps running almost to the point of collapse; makes one wonder what he’s running from. Guess there a some demons we might also learn about later on. He spots four suspicious guys, and immediately calls Steve. Good boy. 🙂 Well trained. Oh, and let me mention that I love Junior’s “Yes, Sir”. Finally someone actually showing some respect.

And of course, Steve gets over there right away. With Adam in tow.

Let’s take a small break and go to HQ to watch a video of Tani getting her brother out of the to be raided house. I’m not sure what I think about Grover helping Tani to keep something from their boss. Or did he do it to give her the chance to come clean about it?

More importantly, where did he get the video footage from, and who else knows about it? Is this evidence of a crime? Did Tani actually commit a crime by picking up her brother? And do I even want to think about the time frame? When the heck did this go down? Just this morning, right? And now Grover has the video and all? Very iffy, if you ask me. Well, nobody does… so.

Back to the bank. Where I had a good laugh. Look out for all the people standing around watching the scene being filmed. Not very subtle. 🙂

H50 - 807-013

Steve takes a look at the car, the hotwired car, and looks inside the bank. It’s more than obvious that they have a robbery in progress.

H50 - 807-014

Adam points out the obvious, why did they leave the car behind, without someone guarding it? Not the normal behavior of bank robbers, I guess. So, after a short discussion, they call for back-up, and Steve prepares to enter the bank.

One question should be allowed. Why the heck didn’t they just pick the lock? Would have been a lot quieter. Of course, less spectacular.

So, Steve enters the back through the back door, and expects Junior and Adam to wait for back-up. Yeah right.

Loved Junior in this. He follows orders, but only direct orders, not suggestions like the plan is to wait. That’s not an order. 😉 If you think about it, the scenes with Adam getting the gun and Junior picking Steve’s safe are a bit ridiculous, but I really liked them. It was fun watching. They made a great team.

I also loved the explosion, and the aftermath. Another great wake-up scene by Alex. He is so darn good at them. And now this episode drifts into the “don’t think about it, just enjoy the ride” territory. Why the hell didn’t the robbers came in from the outside sometime during the night? I mean, they drilled that big ass tunnel without anyone knowing about it. Don’t you think someone should have noticed the baddies drilling that kind of tunnel? Seemed a bit unbelievable that they would be able to pull it off without anyone hearing anything. But they obviously did. Makes me wonder why they didn’t finish it unnoticed.

Guess because we wouldn’t have gotten one of the most ridiculous car/foot/chases, whatever you wanna call it.

Steve is in pursuit in the underground tunnels, and Adam follows him, driving like a madman. I mean, seriously, what the heck was that about? Steve was on foot, underground. No need for Adam to drive across town. 🙂 And how was Jerry able to trace Steve’s cell? Isn’t it amazing how they never have cell phone reception as soon as they leave the city limits, but have perfect reception underground?

OK, let’s get to THE scene. Steve shooting the cop. “That’s not a cop, Steve.” That’s what I shouted at the screen. What would a lone cop doing down there? And why wouldn’t he call out? Besides, the shooting was justified. Steve might see that differently since he didn’t have a visual. And I can understand his point. But he got shot at. Do you only shoot back when you can clearly see your target? Should he have considered that there might have been innocent bystanders in that situation? I don’t think so. But whatever the case, the shooting gave us some great Steve scenes. Loved them.

H50 - 807-033

But before that, let’s take a look at the rescue drive back and the scene at the hospital. Seemed to me that the hospital wasn’t that into saving that guy. I mean, they declared him dead in the hallway. They didn’t even take him to a trauma room. That was really rushed, and felt totally wrong.

Now we can enjoy Alex and his great acting.

H50 - 807-039

H50 - 807-044

After the emo scenes, Five-0 goes to work at the smart table to figure out how the baddies could have known how much money was in the vault. It was clear pretty soon that it must have been an inside job.

H50 - 807-046

So, we get the usual blue room stuff and the talks at the table. Where they also figure out that cop wasn’t a cop. Yeah, told you so.

Question again, why did he take off his mask? That made no sense whatsoever. They must have known that there would be cameras. That was just bad writing. I mean, they could have figured out that the cop wasn’t a cop way more easy than with this stupid move. But whatever.

After that, one of the bad guys decided to march into HQ and kill the guy in the blue room. How did he manage to get in there? How did he figure out the combination? All these little things drive me nuts. Because if you do something in a story it has to make sense, it has to be possible. You can’t just let the guy walk into the blue room and kill someone just because you want to. You need to make it possible. And the writers just don’t. I’m one of those people always questioning the HOW of a scene. Maybe I shouldn’t, but I can’t help it.

H50 - 807-050

Of course Steve and Lou are after the shooter, and wonder oh wonder Steve actually hit the moving target. A rare occasion on Five-0. 😉

And really? All the baddies are in the car, with the money? Why would they do that? They are not very clever, aren’t they.

H50 - 807-052

Anyway, nice scene with the flipped car and the team standing around it.

H50 - 807-053

I hope Tani has learned her lesson. Confiding in Steve is the first step into the right direction. At least I hope she will tell him about her brother and what she did.

H50 - 807-057

Another nice scene with Steve and Adam. I must say, I was really surprised about how much I enjoyed Adam in this episode. I hope it will continue.

And we end the episode with Junior watching a video. I hope we will learn more about him in the coming episodes.

H50 - 807-058

So this was my first review for the new season. I now, still not the usual snark and sarcasm, but I am easing back in. Hopefully the next episodes will be equally as good as this one.

Thanks for reading.

The show made it to its 175th episode!

Congratulations to all involved.

It is a huge achievement for any show these days and definitely a great accomplishment. And from the looks of it, Hawaii Five-0 might be looking at a few more seasons to come. Who knows, they might even double it and in the end will reach 350+ episodes. 🙂

This week’s story might not have been as BIG as those for the 100th or 150th episodes – but Alex definitely entertained us with some wonderful acting.

Just to clear up some speculation about the filming and the number of this episode – it was always filmed and planned as Episode 175. Other episodes might have been broadcast out of sequence but not this one – it was filmed as Episode 8:07 as far as I could see. It is a pity that the new regular cast members Noelani, Duke and Kamekona did not make it into this episode, but it is understandable that the story did not need their involvement. Together with the fact that this was Episode 175, I can also see why this episode, rather than last week’s farce, was shown at SOTBthis year.

Today I just share a few of my own thoughts while watching the show …. no Koala Smartass#sorry . But as usual our post is just an excuse to post some pretty Alex pictures.

  • Junior is running and waiting patiently at the traffic light (I saw the EP said that he is the heart of the show now and taking the “reigns” – so it is good that they start with him, I guess). Somebody nearly runs him over with her car. Now that’s what I call running into each other by accident (or near accident that is. 😀 )

  • You can see, there is some history there (Leila and Juniorfirst loves maybe?) ….. but this history is highly pregnant now. Doubt if it was Junior’s doing, because he was a war hero before he came home. So I guess their history is history or maybe not.

  • So we saw this next bit on the sneak peeks – so the surprise of it is kind of not there. 😦 … Taniseems to know where her brother hangs out and also got word that the place would be raided that morning, because she pitched up just in time to get him out of there. The perks of working for an elite task force I guess – some ‘insider trading‘ of sorts. But she did not do anything to prevent the raid or warn any of those there apart from her brother. Is that then still a deadly sin or real police obstruction? Maybe just some ‘insider saving‘?

  • Ah, happy Steve is meeting somebody at the airport – 2 people it seems! He seems really exited about whoever it is. He is expecting the Noshimori’s, but only Adam appears, without Kono?
  • Steve is leiing (is that a word? 😀 ) Adam. Giving another man flowers – surely Danny will be jealous?
  • I kind of think that they have created a good explanation why Adam is back without Kono. She is busy saving the world and he is bored (And I wonder who is paying the bills?). I can not find fault with that. Steve and Adam’sconversation makes me think – Unlike Cath, Kono got the ring, but she still decided to leave her man and follow her passion to do something for humanity – a legacy as Steve calls it. Men sometimes neglect their families and loved ones to follow a calling, and they are hailed as heroes most of the time for doing it. Are these women also heroes? Is Doris not also maybe a hero? I kind of really like it that Doris is mentioned in the Steve/ Adam conversation. (I know I am in a minority, but I still like Doris)

  • Adam and Kono and babies. Doris says things happen when they are supposed to happen …. Wonder if we will ever see her again? Dead or alive? Or see her hold Steve’schild?

  • Junior is still running – and is really tired. But not too tired to be very observant. He sees a suspicious car without number plates in front of a bank and 4 suspicious guys getting out. Seems like he is a good detective already.

  • Eddieand a Jedi mind trick to mesmerize Steve – now that is a great idea for any fangirl to try …..

  • Junior is wise, he calls Steve. He was right, it is a bank robbery, but the duffel bags were not empty – there were some BIG guns in there.

  • Okay – now we see the 2nd sneak peek. Tani and Grover watching her on video “saving” her brother from being arrested. Not sure where Grovergot the footage and who else knows about this. And we all know what happened to Gabriel after Chin cut him some slack – he became a vicious killer and a gangster.

  • Grover deletes the footage. But is that the only copy?

  • Junior and Adam. I find Junior and Adam’s dialogue somewhat strange. Junior lives with Steve – surely Steve would have told him that he was going to the airport to pick up Kono and Adam. Junior sounds like he did not know that?
  • Okay Steve – this is not looking good. There are some tied up people in the bank, but no robbers in sight?

  • Trust the ex gangster boy to know that a getaway car would have a driver and would be running. Or maybe Adam just watched to many cop shows while he was waiting for Kono in the hotel rooms. But still, it is strange that that there is no getaway driver, I agree.

  • And there we miss it again. Steve changing from his normal shirt to his T-shirt with his kevlar right there on in the streets of Honolulu. 😦 (Just want to add here that I really like the shape or cut of the shirts Steve is wearing this season. It shapes nicely onAlex’s gorgeous body)

  • This is also not new – sneak peek 3 – Steve and the non-taskforce back-up, breaks down the back door and he sneaks into the bank from the back or the bottom or whatever. Of course Adam and Junior did not listen to him, and both follow Steve inside. I was just wondering, who was watching the getaway car and the front door while they were all down there – the robbers could easily have left on the street while they were busy. Normally a bank robbery is a quick job, isn’t it? If they were no longer inside the bank, I would have thought that they walked out the front while our heroes were downstairs in the parking garage breaking down doors and not in the vault.

  • That’s neat – the vault explodes and after the bank manager opens it, they find a freshly opened pre-dug getaway tunnel inside the vault. My question is, why did they even go in through the bank, why not just shoot the hole open at night and steal the money from the outside, if they were that close to the inside?

  • LOL – Junior just remembered that he missed a test. I have done some crazy things to get out of writing a test, but spotting a bank robbery, now that is genius 😀

  • How can Steve move so fast underground, that Adam needs to drive like a maniac to track him? And how can Jerry even track him down there?
  • Wow, Steve is a better shot when he shoots in the dark than usually in broad daylight – but oops it’s a cop

  • Either the gangster in Adam is coming out, or it is Steve’s truck that inspires him to be so wild! Adam might have Danny’s dialogue of concerns during this episode, but he sure drives like McGarrett.
  • Now they are suddenly out of mid-town in a field picking up Steve and the half dead “cop” coming up from underground?

  • They pronounced the wounded guy dead a bit quick? There in the hallway? Not really trying very hard? (Maybe we have all been watching too many hospital show over the year? )
  • How did they so quickly get the finger print of the bank teller inside the vault analysed – but the dead ‘cop’ has not been identified yet? And normally the HPD cops have their names on their uniforms? Why is Steveworried about a cop that died, which they have not even ID’d yet, because if they did it correctly, they would have known he was not a real cop. Poor Steve went emo for nothing. (But I guess they did give Alex a chance to show his brilliance)
  • Yikes – so the blue room is not every safe after all?

  • They still do not know who deposited the money that was stolen – I guess that is where Adam will come in soon. To infiltrate the gangster world? I like Steve and Adamtogether. (I am thinking of writing something about the bond between them in a different post – their fathers were murdered by the same man after all).

All in all I guess this was the best episode for the season thus far. And as quite a few people said at SOTB, the new blood added a new spark to the show. Some young fresh and eager talent. And also the genius idea of adding a K9 (#McEddieForever). All of the new cast, Ian included as regular cast, are giving Alex a fresh opportunity to do his thing. I do hope that they give the newly added regular local cast also some better stories. Kamekona had his chance already, but we haven’t seen much of Duke or Noelani yet. Alex really bonds well with all of them.


Last Friday it was time for the 8th Sunset on the Beach. It was of course a bit different this year, as it did not feature the premiere of the season. But it was also a special celebration of Episode 175. The show dedicated the evening to the war veterans and a number of them were invited to attend the evening.

And of cause as Number 1 on the call sheet of the show, playing Steve McGarrett,Alex O’Loughlin once again contributed to make the evening into a special event for the fans of the show. Here is a short recap of parts of Alex being Alex during the evening …….

  • He arrived in style and graciously accepted the customary lei.

  • Made a heartfelt speech to celebrate the Veterans

    (Transcript of video below)

Now they get a taste of how tricky it is (talking about the executives making speeches before him).

Thank you all very much for coming. I can’t see any of you, but I’m sure you are there.

[Talking to someone close by off stage]: What’s it? [Adjusting how he speaks in the mic]. Is this good? I didn’t even know how to use this.

Look, all week I’ve been thinking about what I would say. And the reason I said yes to speaking is because uhm ……

What we are celebrating today – and I don’t mean the show – I mean Veteran’s day, is very important to me for number of reasons. I started thinking about it and…..

Eight years ago we started on this journey, and this journey required military assistance from many different divisions. And when we reached out a hand and asked for assistance from the US military, we got so many hands back.

One of the biggest hurdle for me saying yes to the role, was that I would be representing a community of very special people within the US Navy. And I think I would be able to do it. And the only reason I have been able to kind of pull it off, is because of the support that I’ve had from select individuals. A number of them are in the crowd tonight. And you know who you are, gentleman.

Uhm ….. [Crowd clapping]

The US Navy SEAL’s – I’ve never had a group of people make me feel more a part of. More equal and more welcome than that community. So first of all I would like to say, a sincere and humble thank you so much to the entire community.

Second of I all I would just like to take a minute to say to every service men and women in this country, whether currently active, deployed or otherwise, whether heading into a retirement or well settled into retirement or whether the memory of the souls that we no longer have – Thank you so much for providing all of us, including guests and ex patriots like me, from Australia and other countries, the freedom that we have every day, the civil liberties that we try not to take for granted and the peace that we have every night when we lay our children down and close our own eyes

So for all you service people out there, from the bottom of our hearts on Hawaii Five-0 – Thank you for your service.

  • And of course left us with this wonderful message:

Video edit – Original from CBS TV Studios

A big THANK YOU to everybody who shared their special moments with us all.

Till next year then …….


First of all, a big THANK YOU you to those of you who still enjoy Alex with us! Your messages of support are all highly appreciated. Many of you have known us for 6 years already, and know who we are at heart. I guess many do not always get our sense of humour and general fangirl silliness – but that’s life. To each his own.

We have always catered for a wide variety of tastes and I guess the number of visitors we still have on a daily basis, regardless of our scaling down, are testament to the fact that we hit the mark somewhere. The fact that we are not a straight forward “news” site, but a fun site where we share our views and opinions freely, is a big part of who we are, and who we would always like to be …….

We also allow for many views in comments and rarely do we ever remove any of the comments made. Weirdly enough people do not “get” the fact that we do not make the comments ourselves and all comments made are not necessarily our views and thoughts. I guess it is mind-blowing for some to grasp that we allow that freedom – but never the less, it is true. Having said that, we mostly enjoy some wonderful fellow fans, who feel free to have their own say in a respectful and often humorous manner. Thank you all for that!

But let’s get on and have some fun with Alex and this latest episode of Hawaii Five-0.

However, be aware – if you do not like sarcasm, irony or lack a general sense of humour; or if you take yourself, your ship and ‘The Show‘ too seriously and think it is gospel, or even part of real life and that the characters are actually real people, then stop reading immediately.

As usual, just some random thoughts and questions 😕 while watching the episode ……

  • (Aqua)Man and his best friend (BFF) Eddie is swimming in the sea – #McEddie forever (And they are two beautiful specimens I might add)

Koala Smartass: Have to say, I am with you there. Eddie and his bromance with Steve and interaction with the rest of the team has been a highlight of this season. He was definitely also a shining star on the Red Carpet this weekend.

  • Clearly Steve likes his morning fitness routine – not even Danny popping by for a so-called BFF visit seem to be more important than it, because he is well on his way for his jog as well, even though Danny is there for a visit. I think the man has his priorities for health in good order, if you ask me.

Koala Smartass: Yes, indeed it looks like Steveis definitely in control of his health and mental fitness. Nothing wrong with his Zen.

(And look, the make-up people remembered his bullet wound)


  • Danny brought coffee and cocopuffs – very high on the health spectrum?

Koala Smartass: Did you not know, rich food is better for one’s health than exercises?

  • And suddenly Steve AND Eddieare both all dry as they enter the house.

Koala Smartass: The morning heat in Hawaiimust be fierce – dries you, your dog and your clothes off in a minute.

  • Weirdly, Stevedoes not greet any of his friends and colleagues in his house? And neither does any of them even greet him.

Koala Smartass: Maybe he was worried that he was hallucinating? Not sure if they were really there. Or thinking that if he does not acknowledge them they would not be there? And maybe they all felt a bit guilty for being there, invading their friend and leader’s home without his invitation?

  • Not sure why Steve calls Eddie a traitor now? What did he do?

Koala Smartass: As usual some of the dialogue chosen, blows my mind.

  • Suddenly Steve remembers his manners and greets them.

Koala Smartass: The man is an Officer and a gentleman after all!

  • Recently diagnosed?

Koala Smartass: Yes, a few months or half a year is fairly recent?

  • I must admit, I enjoyed the “intervention” far more than I thought I would, or should have. Maybe I was just distracted by Alex’s legs or his gorgeous face?

Koala Smartass: Yes, most of the dialogue and interactions were spot on for all the different characters – and with each of them Alex played it perfectly. I am kind of sure the one (writer) who came up with the idea to add the bounty hunter and the fact that “Dog” ambushes people in their own homes, was really chuffed with his joke.

  • Web-MD rabbit hole – LOL

Koala Smartass: A sign of our times, I guess.

  • And then we meet Chloe – and I am kind of sure she personifies in some areas most fangirls who ever meet Alex. And I kind of think that the civility he handles her with, is just the way Alex shows great old school courtesy towards those who awkwardly meet him – all big eyed and starstruck.

Koala Smartass: Kind of sure we (the fans) would all find a way or reason to hang around him for the whole day ….. paid or not.

  • And again I get the feeling that this season they are really writing ‘for the fans’ – I mean they are reading what fans complain about and then respond to it. Kind of answering our concerns and gripes. We always complain that we do not hear about Lynn. Now he says that they have been seeing each other on and off for a while now (Kind of like 2 years isn’t it?) – and they have sex 5 times a week.

Koala Smartass: Is the ‘on’ times, the days when they have sex and the ‘off’ times, the days when they don’t? And it is so clear that Peter is shipper baiting people – he posted part of this car scene on IG a while ago and with the part shown at the time, kind of insinuated that Chloe was discussing Steve and Danno’s sex life as a couple. BUT here it comes – BAM!! – slap them shippers right back into reality, while mentioning the ever absent girlfriends. It is the girlfriends who are actually discussing the sex lives and here they get mentioned just to remind you that the two of them have sex with other people who happen to be women. Oops there he smothers the fantasies again. And so the cycle continues.

  • Yikes – having a girlfriend discussing your sex life with your partner’s girlfriend – That would be very high on the stress scale for me.

Koala Smartass: Yes, and there I thought they could not write her worse or do Lynn’s character more harm. Last time we saw her as this giggling groupie as part of the Valentines weekend, but now she is a blabber mouth about her and Steve’s intimate moments? Boy, the sex must really be mind-blowing for Steve to continue with such an immature relationship……

  • Interesting that Chloe does not ride along when Steve visits Alicia.

Koala Smartass. I guess that part was too grown-up, and not part of Danny’s ‘marriage’ counselling effort?

  • I find it funny that Danny now starts to backtrack about Chloe invading Steve’s life.

Koala Smartass: Yes, I guess there is no turning back ones you opened Pandora’s box dear Danny. Or when you scratched where there was no itch.

  • Oy, and after all it seems that Chloe is good at her job – she sees where Steve’smain source of stress lies – DANNY and his demeanor!

Koala Smartass: Did not really take much skill to get to that conclusion.

  • Alicia: “I heard. Good luck with that!” – after meeting Chloe and Chloe telling her that she is consulting on Steve.

Koala Smartass: Yes, I kind of got a giggle on, when I started thinking of how Steve and Alicia had a good laugh on the way to the office about the “intervention” and Chloe’s shadowing.

  • Yikes, is Alicia really going to wear that dress that the mother was wearing while being dead for 3 days?

Koala Smartass: What can I say – she is a tough broad. And I guess, she would rather do that, than go to prison for murder?

  • Grover: ‘Should have brought the wife. Dinner and a show’ – priceless!!

Koala Smartass: What can I say, I LOVE the man. Chiis the master of those Grover one-liners.

In the end I guess, by just the way Steve handled the day with total grace, even with all the unnecessary stress added to it with all Danny’s worries and fears and meddling, it is quite clear why he is the main man and how mature he actually is. And that Junior in a mere 6 weeks managed to make the right observation …….

……. and maybe Steve found one of the truths in life, that by being there for others and helping them in their moment of need, is one of the main keys to ensure a happy and fulfilled life for yourself …….

Maybe, just maybe in the end this silly episode showed us that Steveis really part of the Aloha spirit …. and that with his whole being, he personifies the Island spirit!

And I guess we saw a big part of that in Alex as well as he graced the Red Carpet on Friday evening at Sunset On the Beach. Having fun and sharing so much of himself with fans and everybody in general. The man remains a class act with buckets full of the Aloha spirit …….

McGarrett is accompanied on the case by a stress management consultant, whom Danny and the others have hired to help him manage his health.

I’m sure you expected a detailed review for last Friday’s episode. Yeah, me too. I didn’t expect to turn off the TV 10 minutes into the show. But that is what I did. I couldn’t bear to watch that crappy storyline.

I did finish the episode the next day though. Did it get any better? Nope, not really.

Tell me something, when has Steve ever shown any signs of stress? Stress he couldn’t handle? I can’t think of a single scene. Not one.

And again this was not about Steve. No, it was about the unbearable sidekick who’s not able to handle any situation that life throws at him. He can’t handle his family situation, he can’t handle his work, and he for sure can’t handle that his friend might or might not get sick down the road.

And we had to endure all this crap, and the very unfunny consultant lady just because of him.

He thinks Steve takes the situation too lightly? You have to be an idiot to think that Steve isn’t scared. And you also have to be an idiot not to know your friend, and how he handles himself and all situations he’s ever been in. Head on, not obsessing about it, but simply dealing with it.

You know, when the only sane people in the room are Steve, Junior, and, wait for it… The Bounty Hunter, I seriously have to think about if this show is still the right one for me.

One thing I am sure about is that this episode was one of the worst since the three drunken idiots from a few seasons back.

What a waste of time.

P.S. This is my opinion about the episode, and mine alone. Don’t get your panties in a twist if you loved the episode and think I’m an idiot. Fine by me. Simply do what I’m doing… move on.
