A Pre-Post

The Recap/Picspam probably won’t be up until tomorrow, because I have to write a paper today. However, I need to say something, and since it’s kind of negative, I’d rather keep it separate from the recap.

I like Danny. I like Catherine. I liked the episode. Please do not even start with this junk about “if you like Danny, you must automatically “hate” Cath.” Adults are capable of having more than one thought, and I sometimes act like an adult. I’m tired of being called a “hater” and being shunned on twitter and criticized, all because I happen to like Danny. That’s all. I think he and Steve have a great relationship. That doesn’t mean I have to hate someone else. I don’t. Okay? Can I just enjoy my Ohana?

  1. Amen!!! I’m also tired of all the negative sniping people do, putting people in corners or disliking a character just because you really dislike those character’s fans. It’s so sad. And I’m sorry I haven’t been around more to support you. You’re awesome and deserve it for all your positivity. I agree with 100% of what you wrote here. πŸ™‚

  2. May I add something??
    Just because you don’t like how a character is been written, it doesn’t mean, you hate the actor. And, btw, “hate” is a strong word. I know that there’s still a war in twitterland. We had this before. I’ve been blocked, unfollowed, whatever. Because of the people I follow. I really like what you wrote. “Adults are capable of having more than one thought, and I sometimes act like an adult.” ADULTS! That’s the magic word. This war is childish!
    Where’s the spirit of aloha?? What happened to that Ohana feeling???

  3. This “battle” on Twitter and elsewhere almost ruined it for me, even though I never ever participated. I thought it was over when Michelle’s leave was announced, but it’s not. I’m so tired of this. As your banner says: this should be about humor, beauty and fun. Aloha! πŸ™‚

  4. Danny is my top favorite on the show. I also like Steve. Agree that their bromance is special and I enjoy watching their friendship. I also liked Jenna. I like Catherine. I liked her better before she joined the team though but that doesn’t mean I wanted her gone. All that nasty talk reminded me of how much people hated Jenna and wished she was gone. I understand how upsetting those comments must be/have been to both actresses.

    I love what you do though Rocsfan and hope you will keep posting!

    • Anytime you put yourself out there for your art, you rish criciticsm. But that doesn’t make it easy.
      Thanks, I’m so glad you like the rambling here at Ohana Happy Hour!

  5. I simply adore Steve and love Danny, Chin and Kono and their friendship and ohana. I even loved Cath before she became a regular. I feel the biggest mistake made was having her retire from the Navy and become a member of the team. There wasn’t enough for a 5th person to do even while filling in for the absent Kono. She was a much better asset to the team working her surveillance magic from afar. They could have made her a special agent working for the Navy in surveillance from a field office on the island instead. But they didn’t ask me :-)!

    I’m an older fan (in my late 50’s) and find all the hate and rancor on twitter and FB not only deplorable but a sad commentary on people in general. It’s a tv show, not real life. No one should be subjected to hate and death threats spewed under the cloak of anonymity. The twitter fiasco was fueled, unfortunately, by Michelle herself. Please no hate, that’s my opinion after what I read. What might have begun innocently enough quickly spiraled out of control. It reached the point of no return. I was thisclose to giving up my guilty pleasure (as I like to call my love of all things H50) but have decided to wait it thru and hope that things quiet down.

    Btw, I love the Steve/Danny bromance. It’s one of the many things that made me fall in love with the show.

    Sorry. Didn’t mean to write so much.

  6. Sorry, that you feel like that on twitter. There were/are some ugly things going on.

    I don’t like Danny when he’s alone on screen. Never have, never will. But I mostly enjoy him with Steve or the team. But I don’t dislike him because I love other people on the show. Who thinks like that is just stupid in my eyes. I can love a lot of people at the same time. Doesn’t mean to love one and hate the other.

    I don’t like Danny, because I think he is very poorly written. His behavior towards his so called friends is just unacceptable to me. But again that has nothing to do with the others on the show. I just don’t get why people can’t accept other peoples opinions.

    You like Danny? Good for you. I think everyone should love and enjoy their favorite parts of the show to the fullest.

    I would never agree with you on Danny, but that doesn’t matter, I enjoy your posts just the same. Unfortunately a lot of those childish twitter idiots can’t accept other people’s opinions and are ‘defending’ their opinion in a nasty and below-the-belt-way. Shame on them all.

    I hope you will keep enjoying the Ohana..

    • I appreciate your comment! You’re allowed to not like a character, just like I’m allowed to like him. Great point about we should just all enjoy what we enjoy and be entertained!

  7. I’m sorry people are being putz’s. We are all entitled to our opinions and shouldn’t be rude or mean to those we don’t agree with.

    Stay strong and maybe start a book with the responses/feedback you received (good and bad), I bet it would make for an interesting read. πŸ™‚ Plus, since it’s your book you can comment back whatever you want, could be good therapy to spew and then let it go. πŸ˜€

    Love you!!
