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:
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.
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.
Geck-O-Meter: 5 Geckos, although I think AOL deserves 9 Geckos of his own for his fine performance
Shirtless Chin Ho! Lots of fun Grover/McGarrett ridiculous competing. Lots of Steve hitching his pants and grabbing his badge. Not much Danny. Sort-of interesting case that probably stirred up some political controversy, but that’s not what I’m here for. Nice Ohana scene at the end, which always makes me happy.
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.
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.
