I received an interesting comment I would like to share with all of you.
Unfortunately, that person decided to do his/her comment anonymously. Sorry, but this blog doesn’t allow anonymous comments. 😉
But since this person took so much time to voice her/his opinions, and I really want to respond to it, I am simply making a post out of it.
So, bear with me and let’s see what this person had to say.
I’m sincerely not trying to sound like an asshole but enough with the Danny bashing. We get it, you don’t like him and you find fault in every thing that he does. He opens his mouth and you hate him, he keeps quiet and you hate him. I’m pretty sure I’ve seen you hate him for the exact same something you’ve loved Steve for. He’s not in an episode and most of the time you still find a way to hate him. You can’t even come up with new things to say about why you hate him. Let’s not get into the semantics of whether or not you actually use the word hate because we all know that’s what it is.
You use the word hate pretty often, must be a favorite of yours.
Personally, I don’t care enough about Danny to develop such a strong feeling, like hate, for him. And I don’t despise the person Danny either; I just can’t tolerate his behavior. By the way, I do wonder who ‘we all’ is? I think you should pretty much speak just for yourself.
And I’m always the first to point out when he did something that I liked. Which I have done many times.
I don’t think that Steve ever did anything that I hated when Danny did it, but thought it was great when Steve did it. I only complain about Danny’s disrespect and what he’s constantly bitching about. I can’t recall Steve ever doing anything like that.
And I don’t have to come up with new things to rant about; what he’s doing over and over again is plenty. So, no need to look for even more faults in Danny.
Enough is enough.
Enough is enough? Yeah, it will be enough when Danny finally starts to act like a decent person. Until then, you have to either deal with me complaining… or simply stop reading.
With AOLWW all but shut down I want to find another place to talk about the show I love but all I see here is week after week of the same thing: if it’s not about Steve/AOL you don’t like it and you make it obvious that people who do like Kono and Danny aren’t very welcome.
LOL – I’m sorry, but that is the most ridiculous thing to say. I don’t like the show except for Steve? I guess you haven’t read my reviews then. I love the show, the whole show. And have said so numerous times. Don’t mistake me pointing out what I can’t stand about certain persons with me only enjoying the parts that Steve is in.
See, that is a huge problem these days. People are being critical about some parts of a show and other people assume that person must hate the show or the person the critique was about. How small minded that is! You critique something because you love it. Why would I even bother if I only wanted to watch Steve?
And you would be really surprised to learn how many of the regular reviewers on this blog are actual Danny fans, or at least like him a whole lot more than I do. You know, the majority of fans who visit here is pretty silent. I know the statistics of this blog, so I know exactly how many people visit every day. And trust me, the people (you call them a “small circle of Danny haters”) commenting here, are not even mentionable in percentage to the big silent majority.
But I do know that everyone is welcome to voice their opinion here. Every opinion is welcomed. And we do have very different views in our comments, and none of them have ever been attacked or silenced by any of us “Steve-lovers”. Who is not welcomed, on the other hand, is someone bashing on actors, or any real people. You don’t like a particular character, be my guest, bash away. As long as you can back up your claims.
Just saying ‘I hate him’ doesn’t cut it here. But until now we have never had a problem with people not feeling welcomed on this blog.
Would you seriously want to visit and try to make friends on a so-called Hawaii Five-0 fan blog that constantly trashed Steve? Between your reviews and all the back slapping circle jerk “I hate Danny/Kono too” comments it’s not a friendly atmosphere here for anyone who might disagree. I say so-called Hawaii Five-0 fan blog because that’s what your name implies, that you’re a fan of the show, not just Steve but you wouldn’t know it from your reviews. I just think it’s sad that there is literally nowhere left in the fandom to go. All the good sites and the more accepting of differing opinions have left.
You know, I have a great idea. If you’re looking for a site to interact with people who feel just like you, and where you can dictate what is posted on the site, why don’t YOU start a blog on your own time, with your own money?
I’m not getting paid to do this, I don’t do it to entertain anyone, I don’t have to be ‘opinion-free’, I can do and say whatever I please. You don’t like it? Well, too bad, this site is not here to meet your needs. None of the great sites out there are. We are not doing a public service, you know. We do spend our own personal time and our own money to maintain the blogs.
But I’m sure if you look hard enough you will find something that does fit you better than this site.
So if you care at all what anyone other than your small circle of Danny haters thinks, can you maybe try not to bash him (or Kono) in the future? Everyone knows how you feel. It doesn’t need to be repeated over and over and over and over and over. Instead of repeating the same complaints every week maybe you could just fast forward through his scenes or not pay attention. That’s what I do when a character I don’t care for is on screen. I certainly don’t spend what probably totals to hours of my life trashing the character and by result, insulting the fans who do like them.
I don’t bash Danny, and certainly not because he’s “Danny”, but because of what he’s doing or saying. Again, I also have found great praise for him when he deserves it. (Deserves it from my point of view)
And about Kono. No, I don’t like her much. Simply because I think she’s boring and I don’t buy her prowess. But if you had read the latest review, you would know that I really liked her in this episode and pointed it out more than once.
And by the way, I for sure will not adapt my opinion to your liking. So, don’t try to tell me how I write about the characters I love. Yes, I do love all characters on the show, some more than others (yeah, even Danny in a way), but I despise Danny’s behavior and I’m certainly not sad if I don’t have to see him in an episode. I bet that is a concept you don’t get.
Do you really think Lenkov or anyone who matters reads these reviews? Do you really think your opinion would matter to them if they did? So what exactly do you get by saying you hate particular characters again and again when anyone who visits this blog more than one or two times is gonna already know how you feel?
ROFL, you think I care about what Peter Lenkov thinks if he would ever read one of my reviews? I couldn’t care less about what he thinks. I’m really glad that he’s not influenced by any fans. Every fan who thinks he or she could make a difference by appealing to Lenkov is just delusional.
H50 is Peter Lenkov’s vision, it’s his product. And that is a good thing. Just imagine if the fans would have a say in the matter. That would be a disaster.
Do I always like what he’s doing with Five-0? No, certainly not. But it’s not my place to condemn him for doing his job the best way he thinks it should be done.
It is my ‘job’ however to voice my opinion about a product I spend a lot of money on; from season passes and BluRays/DVDs to working this blog. So, yeah it is my right to complain or praise the product I’m spending money on.
So, you are welcome to join our discussions, which are always fun, respectful of other opinions and come from our hearts.
But don’t ever again try to tell me how to write my reviews or how to maintain my blog, so that you would like it better here.
But seeing you choosing not to even give a name or email, I guess the problem really lies with you, and not with me or the people on this blog.
Oh, and your wish from the beginning, not to sound like an asshole? Sorry, but you failed.
