#H50 Recap 6×1: Mai Ho’oni I Ka Wai Lana Malie (Do Not Disturb the Water that is Tranquil)

Ahoy, my pretties, and welcome to season 6! Our Ohana is back!

I give this first episode 6 geckos. Maybe I’ve been spoiled by super-action-packed and bigger-than-life premier episodes before now, because this one just seemed a little flat. Lots of standing around and talking. But it’s still my H50 and there’s still lots to love! Some great lines, Kono being kick-ass Kono, nice smiles, men in tuxes, and a scary cliffhanger. And Pirates!!! Pirates! Pirates!!! Not zombies, but perhaps a Tongan or two.

#ScottCaan Fan Video by @_valleygirl07

Aloha! Here’s a terrific video made by my fellow fan Janet as a tribute to Scott Caan. It isn’t strictly H50, but I hope you can all enjoy it anyway, because it shows so much about his talents, attitudes, depth, and complexity. Yes, I have a crush on him, and yes, I carry on sometimes about his smile and his muscles and….well, anyway, I do know there’s so much more to him to appreciate!

I’ll be back soon! Season 6 premier is almost here!

#H50 Recap/Picspam: A Make Kaua (Until We Die) 5×25

Aloha! It’s been a long time! I have graduated with my master’s degree and am slowly digging out from under all the stress and stuff that I haven’t done for the last several months. And that means I want to get back to the blog!

I thought I’d start at the end and write a post about the season finale. This episode contained so much! Shirtless, wet Steve. Our pretty team all dressed up in their fine clothes. A cargument and a heligument. A nuclear explosion. A bride who fights crime on her wedding day (I would opt for a pedicure, myself). And further confirmation that Waikiki is one of the most dangerous spots on Earth.

I give this episode 8 geckos.

Gecko-O-Meter: 7 Geckos (I debated between 6 and 7, really)

We open with lots-o-flashbacks to a variety of episodes. Interesting! Is this one going to extend all of these stories?

#H50 Recap/Picspam 2×15 Mai Ka Wa Kahinko

Surprise!!! This is an old recap/picspam from way back when I started writing these. I was writing for someone else’s blog, so I had to follow her rules, but I think they are still fun. :)

I decided to re-post some of these old ones in honor of my good friend Alice, who has recently become a big fan of Hawaii Five-0 thanks to Netflix!! *Everybody wave “hello” to Alice!*  She is especially fond of shirtless Steve. See, she has good taste! I’m starting with this episode because she just watched it.

Dear Golden Globes and Emmy Awards,
Scott Caan. Scott Caan. Scott Caan. Now!
Sincerely, Anna
PS: Throw in an Oscar and a Tony, because he deserves ALL the awards. Thank you.

Before we get to the amazing Scott acting moments, we need to revisit the first part of the episode.

Just looking at that outdoor staircase made me tired and hot. 1048 steps! Just looking at Steve and those arms and legs made me hot and tired. Let’s see, which should I choose?

What is Steve up to now? #H50 #AlexOLoughlin

I saw this promo pic today and said to myself, “What? What does Steve have on his head?” It looks like he’s wearing ogre horns or panda ears or something. Lo and behold, @CarolineinNZ had the same thought, except for bunny ears!

Happy Holidays #H50

I know I’ve missed much over the last few months, and I will continue to be in and out of Blogland for a few more months. But I want to take this time to Thank You, my dear readers, and wish you the Best during the holidays and into the new year. I’ll be back full-time blogging in June (with a shiny new MBA) and for all of Season 6!

Mele Kalikimaka!
