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:
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.
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?
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 Bestduring 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!
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!
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.
Aloha! I am very sorry that the blog has been inactive for 2 months. RL has been especially difficult lately, and I’ve been working huge amounts of overtime. I don’t know if I’ve mentioned it before, but I’m also in grad school. My posts will be shorter for a while, but I hope to keep going with them. I love writing for the blog and sharing with all my readers, though, and it’s a creative outlet for me!
Now, on to the show!
Geck-0-Meter: 6 geckos
Honestly, it’s an average of 4 for the case and 8 for the other stuff going on.
The number 1 reason I love this show is the sense of Ohana! They care. They’re available for each other. They support each other. They’re together through the good times and the tough times. It’s wonderful!
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.
