#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!

Mele Kalikimaka!

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.

#H50 Trivia Time: Loa Aloha (The Long Good-bye) 1×18

Aloha! Do you think some Trivia Time might keep us occupied for the next few days until S5 starts? Here’s the deal, though: I provide the trivia post, which you will hopefully enjoy a little, and in return, you find me a picture of Scott Caan arriving at Sunset on the Beach on his bike!! Anybody? Me and some of my tweeps NEED this. Ok, you can enjoy the Trivia Time whether or not you have a pic. But if you know where I can find one, let me know!!!

Today’s episode goes all the way back to S1, episode 18. Loa Aloha, The Long Goodbye. The episode where we met Danny’s little brother Matt. You know I’m a Danny fan, but yes, I did laugh over the little brother being about 8 feet taller.

Recap/Picspam: 4×22 O ka Pili ‘Ohana ka ‘Oi (Family Comes First) #H50

*Sad face* End of the season! Whatever will I do without my heroes? I will attempt to keep posting amusing blogs, that’s what I will do! 🙂 I can’t promise to have something every week, because the combination of grad school and work just kicks me in the teeth sometimes, but I will have something for you during The Show’s hiatus.

Geck-O-Meter: 7 Geckos

Do you like my gecko? Amber bought me some colorful gecko socks, so I’m using a picture of them this week. 🙂 I get all excited over presents!
