Re: Hawaii 5-0: The Second Season Begins!

Very cool news, but I hope they strike a better balanace between the characters than they did when Lori was on the show. Her screentime seemed to come at the expense of Kono and Chin Ho.

Re: Hawaii 5-0: The Second Season Begins!

Nothing about last night's bottle episode without Alex O'Loughlin?

Generally I still enjoyed it because Danno, Chin Ho and Max had plenty to do (with Kono strangely absent for most of the episode as well) but that was the definition of filler. It's like the writers said, "Okay, the episode has to end with McGarrett in Japan hunting Shellburne...we can improvise everything else in the middle."

Here's hoping the season ends with a bang in the next few weeks.

I think when Chin Ho was rewritten to cover for the loss of McGarrett's his time with Kono went away also

She was busy looking for the shrimp truck.

Re: Hawaii 5-0: The Second Season Begins!

Aw, I thought it wasn't a bad episode, and that it was fun to get a little backstory on Max! Plus, Danno acting like a teenage girl who got dumped by the captain of the football team and calling Steve 8000 times was pretty funny, too. I missed Steve in the episode, but I thought they had a good way of explaining his absence (as opposed to "Steve got the flu" or something like that). And The Case of the Missing Shrimp Truck was funny, too.

Re: Hawaii 5-0: The Second Season Begins!

I don't get why they sandwiched a new episode between 2 reruns. I hate that because I forget it's on...thankfully the DVR knows when it's on. Good episode but I missed the Steve and Danny show. I was surpriseded it was the deacon guy...I was expecting the killer to be the guy who took Max down to the basement who the deacon later killed.

That, strictly speaking, wasn't a "bottle episode".

I used that phrase based on how relatively isolated the episode felt, both in terms of sets and showing the hustle and bustle of Oahu. Normally it feels like the action is taking place in the middle of a living, breathing city but this episode had little of that (e.g., only at the end with Kono bringing back the shrimp truck) with much of the story taking place on isolated sets with only the necessary characters present. I think the gray weather had something to do with it too.

Re: Hawaii 5-0: The Second Season Begins!

The crossover with NCIS: LA begins tonight! I usually think crossovers are pretty hit and miss and I don't watch NCIS: LA, but I'm kind of looking forward to this one.

At last the crossover is here. Too bad Alex O'Laughlin wasn't able to be in it. I really wanted to see him and LL Cool J together. They're both former SEALS so seeing them interact would've been cool.

I think without the overwhelming McGarrett presence it worked well on 5-0. A few hours to NCIS:LA

Re: Hawaii 5-0: The Second Season Begins!

How fun was that?! I thought this was one of the most well done cross overs I've seen. The characters were spot on throughout and the actors played off of one another perfectly. Its rare that I laugh out loud watching TV, but NCIS:LA got me a couple of times. I would be all for them doing more.

Yeah it was a fun ep. The whole Schnauzer thing between Danno and Dekes was hilarious.

Re: Hawaii 5-0: The Second Season Begins!

I also enjoyed the crossover a lot, certainly much better than that previous ep of 5-O where Kenzie showed up for 2 minutes. And I don't usually watch NCIS:LA, but I enjoyed the conclusion on that show as well.

Re: Hawaii 5-0: The Second Season Begins!

I liked the crossover a lot! Just a really good story... possible outbreak/biological warfare stories are usually pretty interesting.

I don't watch NCIS:LA, so I don't know the characters well, but what I saw of them, I liked. Both halves of the crossover were good, and I notice the same three people wrote both episodes (two Hawaii writers and one NCIS: LA one), which is probably why it felt more cohesive and the characters felt consistent--they were represented by writers from their respective shows in both episodes, rather than H5-0 writers trying to write the NCIS: LA characters in the first episode and vice versa in the second. A smart move IMO.

Also, Danno pining for Steve is kind of adorable. I can't believe he went to Steve's house looking for the Shelburne stuff. I bet Danno gives Steve a lot of grief when he gets back! Hell hath no fury like Danno when he thinks he's been slighted.
