#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:

#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: 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?

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.

Recap/Picspam 4×20 Pe’epe’e (Those Among Us) #H50

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.

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.

December 25th Treat #H50

I wish for all the brightest and best times for each of you and your Ohana, today and always. May Peace and Joy be always in your hearts.

Mele Kalikimaka!

#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.
