Both this and Castle
air at the same time, and I don't have a DVR, so I've had to catch up on this show after the fact. I've really come to enjoy it a lot more than I thought I would. The Steve/Danno banter is always great, and Danno is easily my favorite character.
I thought the first episode was pretty solid. Yeah, Wo Fat's escape was ridiculous, but ridiculous action scenes are one of this show's charms, so it didn't really bother me. The second episode was kind of 'meh.' Decent, but not great. I liked Ed Asner's previous episode better.
I'm really glad to see that Michelle Borth has been made a regular. I'm not much of a shipper, but I think she and Alex O'Loughlin have really great chemistry. When they had Cath go on TDY or whatever last season and brought in Lori (who was a complete waste of space) I thought they'd force her and Steve together. Fortunately it seems they've realized their mistake.
