Re: Hawaii 5-0 Season 3 discussion/spoilers

Anyone watch last night? I thought the episode was pretty good. I totally pegged the kid as the killer though... his reaction was way too extreme when he first heard about the guy's death.

I thought Mama McG was less abrasive in this episode, but the whole story tracks so weird. First she's in hiding for years, then she's afraid to come back because of Wo Fat, then she sees him and he escapes, and now she's fine with him being on the island. If she knows him or he is her son, why was she so afraid to come back in the first place?

Catherine's inclusion is starting to feel less and less natural. I think they're going to have to make her part of the team at some point or else it's just going to feel like she's just there to do random favors for Steve. That worked when she was an occasional guest star, but now that she's a reg they have to fit her in better.

I think that instead of inserting Catherine into the team right away and doing it slowly is probably a reaction to how fans disliked how lori was thrown into the team right away.

My thought was that she probably told Wo Fat the truth that she is his mother when she confronted him in the room, and now feels that he won't kill her as a result, or will at least be conflicted about it for a while. Up until this point, I think Wo Fat simply thought she was the spy who killed his father, but had no idea that she was actually his mother as well, which is why he was so determined to kill her at first but then had a change of heart. So now she feels confident about being able to remain on the island safely, although that could be overconfidence on her part (a trait both McGarretts share).

I like how she handles things in stride. And seems totally fine with McGarrett cuddling Danno on the couch.

Tonight's episode pulled because of the tropical storm... so we'll have to wait another week to see the Halloween episode.

Re: Hawaii 5-0 Season 3 discussion/spoilers

Did anyone catch the Halloween episode last night? I loved it!! The evil grandma was a fun twist, and it was nice to see a male kidnap victim as opposed to a female one for once. Danno being scared in the creepy house was cute, too.

I also loved the bookends at McGarrett's house--Kamekona as a SEAL was great, and Steve putting his arm around Danno and Danno snuggling up against him to watch The Notebook was priceless. Priceless!! Loved it.

The murderous grandma was awesome. I thought that she was going to be just the sterotypical oblivious old person but she was killer!

Someone might want to clue in Kono on the concept of cops and backup.
Approaching a moving container while her partners are so far away wasn't exactly the smartest of ideas.

'Hawaii Five-0' to remake 'fan-favorite' episode of original series

Hawaii Five-0 has paid homage to the original series several times in its first few seasons, but the show is about to make what is arguably its biggest nod yet.

EW has learned exclusively that the CBS drama will soon start production on an updated version of “Hookman,” an episode of the original series that was first aired almost four decades ago and won an Emmy in 1974 for Best Music Composition.

Peter Weller (RoboCop) is set direct the episode and guest star as the title villain, taking over the role originally played by double amputee Jay J. Armes.

Oh, I remember that one! That was a good one. I really hope they're able to do it justice.

Re: Hawaii 5-0 Season 3 discussion/spoilers

Last night's episode was great!! Danno is my favorite, so it was fun to see an episode centered around him. Loved the flashbacks to New Jersey--they were pretty brutal though. Poor Danny really took a beating and his partner... And then the sad irony was that 9/11 saved his life by letting him get the jump on his attackers.

I love that Steve wouldn't leave Danny when it looked like the bomb was going to go off. Those scenes were great--you could really hear the fear in Danny's voice. I like that Danny isn't just another stoic cop. Even Steve was tearing up at the end when he hugged Danny.

Great episode!!
