Recap/Picspam #H50: 6×3 Ua ‘o’oloku ke anu i na mauna (The Chilling Storm is on the Mountain)

Aloha! What did you think of our show this week? I say “Wow!” Lots of beautiful scenery, interesting case, and quite a surprise at the end! I think I’ll go with 7 geckos this week. I don’t seem to feel very lighthearted this week, but I hope you enjoy the recap anyway.

#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.

#H50 Recap/Picspam: 4×21 Makani ‘Olu a Holo Malie (Fair Winds and Following Seas)

Geck-0-Meter: 8 Geckos (1 for the case of the week and 7 for the rest of the episode)

Alex was so amazing!! He deserves more recognition for his skill as an actor. Did I mention that he was so amazing?! We should give him an Emmy. And an Oscar. Plus a Grammy, Golden Globe, Tony, and Nobel Prize. The Stanley Cup, anyone?

Recap/Picspam #H50 4×19 Ku I Ka Pili Koko (Blood Brothers)

Geck-O-Meter: 8 Geckos

Yup, I liked this one. So many great moments between my boys! The Steve/Danny relationship is so integral to the show and the family feeling. We got shirtless Danny and almost-pantless Steve, too! Lots of drama, and a little more of the mystery. And a fabulous musical score, too!

Recap/Picspam 4×18 Ho’i Hou (Reunited) #H50

Geck-O-Meter: 7 Geckos

I really enjoyed the fan built aspect of this episode and thought the writers did a clever job working everything in. I’m also happy to have a little bit of the Champ box mystery returning. I think it adds some depth beyond the story of the week.

Recap/Picspam: 4×17 Ma lalo o ka ‘ili (Beneath the Surface) #H50

Geck-O-Meter: 6 Geckos

We started off this episode with a damsel in distress who is trying to hide from a wicked and noisy fight. Nothing much more here.

So let’s proceed to Danny’s house, where his Ma is sneaking around. I honestly thought she was trying to sneak IN without Danny knowing about it, because she’s been out all night doing who-knows-what. Except, we do know what, and we fondly call it “making pancakes.” Except, I apparently have a wayward mind because that is not what she was doing. She was sneaking OUT of the house. To an appointment that she refuses to talk about. But that’s okay, because Danny has secrets of his own, such as what is in the boxes that get delivered just as Ma is sneaking out.

#H50 Recap/Picspam: 4×11 Pukana (Keepsake)

Geck-O-Meter: 6 geckos

Not much Christmas, but lots of creepy. I had the idea that they were going to do a holiday episode, but I must have misunderstood. Lots of Steve and Danny together, but another traumatic Christmas for Chin Ho. This guy needs to leave town this time of year, or something!

I enjoyed the scenes of Hawaii at Christmastime. It always looks so fun and different from what I’m used to.
