I’m really sorry but I don’t have time for a full review this week. So, the poll, a few words and a discussion in the comments has to do.
I thought the episode was rather boring. Nothing much interesting in it. It had some nice scenes, some really cheesy ones, a lot of annoying stuff, too.
Adam going to jail didn’t move me at all; just found it very odd that he wouldn’t be shipped off to the mainland. I doubt he would be held in Halawa.
The dumbest move and biggest plot hole of the episode was transporting the shot Yakuza guy without a protection detail (HPD or his own people). As if that would ever happen.
Getting bored and tired of Gabriel. Still don’t buy that he’s any kind of mastermind. It’s getting rather ridiculous, to be honest.
I’m SO done with Dunn. I’d rather see her back in San Francisco. I’m sorry, but she does not grow on me other than getting really annoying.
I think this was the weakest episode this season. It felt rather stitched together in a hurry. The fight was surely choreographed nicely, but it went on way too long. Again a waste of time with the previously on. It took more than seven minutes for credits to roll. And nothing really happened in those seven minutes.
Just annoying pre-fight scenes, also scenes at casa McG where it was obvious that the show tried too hard. Max kinda explaining Hanukah, sorry but that just felt like hitting us over the head with knowledge. Just ugh. And please, why was Larry Manetti even in the show? Now he’s a boxing manager? Come on.
As I said, nothing felt like it fit together. This was not a masterpiece, and certainly not a worthy show to go into the winter break with.
The “good” verdict is a gift. My present for Christmas, so to speak. 🙂

I don’t claim in any way that my opinion is the right and only one. This is supposed to be fun, so, don’t take any of this too seriously. Always remember, this is just a TV show.
