Wishes for Season 6
Cokie goes first. 🙂
Preface: These are MY wishes and I don’t want to step on any toes or make any enemies. Some of you will not agree with my thoughts. And that is certainly OK; I don’t expect everyone to agree. But I do appreciate tolerance. 🙂
I would like to see less Jerry and Flippa. I appreciate Flippa being added for “authenticity” but he is simply an off shoot of Kamekona. He is boring. As for Jerry, a little bit goes a long way. His story lines haven’t been interesting and while I can appreciate his conspiracy theory ideas, he has strayed from that. He went from being afraid of a phone to handling all sorts of high tech gadgets. I just think they evolved him way too fast and it just isn’t needed in the show.
I either want Danny to grow up and act like an adult OR put Steve in more episodes with Lou and Chin. Actually, leave out that OR above. I want both of those things to happen. I love Steve and Chin together, but Steve and Grover are a great, ADULT team who work well together, have fun banter, but act like adults. Steve shines when he is with Grover.
I want the presence of Catherine in the show. She doesn’t have to be there physically every week. I would be happy if she decides to rejoin Intelligence or something, but I want Steve to know that she is there and they are together. While I personally would love her living there in his house, I don’t hold much hope for that. I will be glad to take what they will give me but I hope it isn’t a nasty break up or a decision that we aren’t right for each other. If they do, I will be upset as with these two, I can’t see that realistically happening.
OK, now it’s my turn.
I do have wishes, and I think there is nothing wrong with that. I also had wishes for season 5, and most of them were crushed, destroyed and trampled on. LOL
Season 5 was not, and will never be my favorite season. Many, many plot holes, bad/boring cases and contingency had left the room right off the start. To be fair, there were also some really great, and even a few awesome episodes.
My point, with past and future wishes is, even if they will not be fulfilled, and even if I rant and rave about the one or other episode, or character or whatever, I still love the show with all my heart. I love Five-0. And I L.O.V.E. Steve.
Bottom line, even though I have wishes and hopes, I’m not one of those people screaming bloody murder never to watch the show again. And keep bugging the hell out of us on twitter – ugh, that would be a theme for another pet peeve. 😉
Anyway, let’s just say… if my wishes will not be fulfilled, I will still love the show the same. Why? Because it’s not MY show. I have NO say in the matter whatsoever. So, only thing I can do is either watch, rant about it… and still love it. Or shut the hell up and watch something else. 😉
OK, here are my wishes. Please, please, I’m begging you, keep the characters in character. I don’t think I could stand another tree incident. I just don’t want to see something that some writers think is funny, but the character would never ever do.
Speaking of characters. Please don’t introduce characters and then somehow lose them. Like Leilani. What the heck happened to Chin’s ‘girlfriend’? They wrote her like they were on a good way to some happiness. And suddenly we never saw her again. Not even a mention of her; it’s like she never even existed.
That brings me to Chin. He is, next to Steve and Grover, my third favorite Five-0 character. So, naturally, I like to see more of him. But not just him. I’m sorry, but as much as I love Chin, so far his story line was boring. The IA thing lost its appeal in season 1. Don’t give us that sh/t again. Please, enough is enough.
I’m hoping for some great episodes with Chin and Steve, these two are great together.
Great together. There is another pairing I’d love to see more of. Grover and Steve are just awesome. And putting Chin in the mix would be just the icing on the cake.
Maybe you wonder about my wishes for Danny? I don’t have any. I simply hope I don’t have to put up with him too often. Sorry, but he gets on my nerves big time. For me he is mostly rant, rant, rant, bla, bla, bla, rant, rant, rant. I don’t care about him at all.
It would be different if he were more like he was in 5.25; there he was tolerable. But I don’t hold much hope for that to happen. I will just follow Steve’s example and won’t listen to him.
Their ‘bromance’ is NOT what draws me to Five-0. Never was, and never will be. For me Danny was from the very beginning a character I couldn’t take seriously as a cop, a partner or a friend. So, the less I see of him, the happier I will be.
BUT, maybe the show will surprise me, and I will learn to love Danny. You will be the first to know if that happens. 😉 (Lord, help us all if that day ever happens… 🙂 – Cokie’s comment when she read it)
So, what else is there to wish for?
I want the writers to remember that their main character is a Navy SEAL. Use that, darn it. I would love to see him use his training more often. And I would LOVE, really love seeing him doing some fun stuff in his spare time. Like skydiving, scuba diving, how about McG on a bicycle? Come on, that would be great.
And how about seeing him on a reserve drill. I always wonder when he is doing his reserve duty. In RL he would go active for a year now after the five year stint as a reservist. I would love if they wouldn’t forget that he still is in the Navy. Seeing him in uniform would also be great.
I guess I have to mention it. Catherine. I love her. I love her with Steve. I think they are one of the best, most realistic couples on TV. She is her own person, she’s not just a trophy wife hanging on his arm. I love that. I love it that Steve had been a one girl man all these years. He never even peeked at other women. I absolutely adore that about him. He had committed to Cath a very long time ago. Long before we ever met him.
So, yeah, I would love to see them getting together. Maybe not right away. Maybe PL has decided they haven’t suffered enough yet. But I really would love to see them ending up together. Just as Freddie said, she’s the real deal.
But if PL decides for some odd reason, one I’m sure I will never understand, that they are not meant to be together, then I want Steve to find someone he can love, someone who loves him. I want him to have fun, laughter and love. I want someone to be there for him when he’s hurt, or alone, or in a pissy mood. Or in a darn good mood. Heck, I just want him to love someone with all his heart. And be loved back. Sigh.
My biggest wish of all is very simple. I just want great stories, great action and fun interaction between all our characters.
And most of all, I wish for all of you to enjoy Five-0 to the fullest. Let other people think of it what they want. Be tolerant. Just because you have a strong opinion about something doesn’t mean you have the right opinion. Loving Five-0 should be fun for all. No matter who they love the most, or who they can’t stand.
Live and let live. That is what I wish for the new season.
