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

Are we on a Star Trek board or what? I can't believe no one has mentioned the DS9 reference.

I missed that one. What was it?

I'm surprised they haven't done a Lost gag (as far as I know), considering Lost was much more popular (overall) that Heroes.
They did use the exact same boat Lost used for Penny's boat, The Searcher, seen in Lost's 4th season finale. But you'd think with Terry O'Quinn guesting and Daniel Dae Kim as a series regular they would've done something bigger than that.

I love that Max got a car just like Danny's. Love, love, love. That was hilarious!

Which made me think of the poster by the same name. And in turn means I spend too much time on the site.

After this show ends O'Laughlin and Caan should do a sitcom together. They're very funny together.

They are. They're the reason I keep tuning into this show week after week. For however long they can keep doing their odd couple schtick, I'll keep watching.

Did anyone else pick up on the subtext that Greg Grunberg's character and the dead agent might have been a bit more than just co-workers?

I waited the whole episode for that bomb to drop. I really thought that was coming.

Yeah, I kinda thought that too. I guess he is just that concerned about his employees.

Yes!! This is really why I watch, too. During that whole scene in Danny's ratty apartment while they were watching the movie together, I kept thinking, you know, this could be the whole episode and I'd be thoroughly entertained.

I kind of wondered if that was going to be an element, or a twist in the story. I think if it had been the case, he wouldn't have given her medal to 5-0, but I definitely thought the subtext was there.

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

Grunberg's character seemed kinda wasted in the episode. He contributed nothing to it other than give them some initial information. In other episodes, characters like that would disappear after they served their purpose in the first 15 minutes.

Besides the apparent subtext that something more personal was between him and the victim amounting to nothing, there was the connection between him and Lori, which could have provided some good backstory for her character. Again, nothing was done other than "Yeah, we know each other." There was also the whole thing at the end with the bad guy trying to taunt him into shooting. And that was resolved extremely anticlimactically with Steve mumbling "You're not getting off that easy" during a dissolve to the next scene. The use of that character was very puzzling.


Has anyone else notice a trend of Danny taking stuff from the victims of the crimes they are investigating? Two weeks in a row, Danny took something happily that belonged to a victim.

Guess that's how things work in Jersey.
