#H50 Recap/Picspam: 6×4 Ka Papahana Holo Pono (Best Laid Plans)

Aloha, my lovelies! Did you enjoy this week’s H50? I did, even though my Danny was missing. But he was off taking care of his son, and I can understand that. I found this to be a good story with lots of team involvement, some nice Ohana moments, and a great guest star. I give this episode 7 geckos on the Geck-O-Meter:

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 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.

#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: 5×21 Ua helele’i ka hoku (Fallen Star)

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?

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!

Recap/Picspam: 5×06 Ho’oma’ike (Unmasked) #H50

Geck-O-Meter: 5 geckos 

I don’t like horror films. Me and Lou are together on this. I had a tough time looking beyond that storyline and appreciating the episode. I did like that this was more of a case-focused show, making it a good shift from the emotions of last episode and probably the next one. Please read on for thoughts about becoming a professional conspiracy theorist, more love for My Guys, interesting astronomical anomalies, and an homage to Blue, Plaid, and Shorts.
