    • I couldn’t find 5. Three I LOVED…the last 2 from last year and the one with McG and the barber. I just cannot vote for the Cath ones THIS season as they were all disappointing to me. *sniffle*

      And yes, 6.03 wins for most heartbreaking for me too. *moresniffles*


  1. It was easy for me. 519 because McG made another grownup friend who really “got” him, and 525, 601. 602, 603.because we saw Cath come back for a little while. The EP left a door open for her return wide enough for two side by side Mack trucks to pass through, so McRollins will ride again, both literally and figuratively.

    I couldn’t narrow down the crappy episodes down to five so I’m glad you didn’t give us that poll–yet.

  2. I knew immediately it would be 5.19 (always! Love this epi!), 5.25 and 6.07. For the last two I chose 6.06 and 6.09. But ask me on another day it will be maybe 6.04 or 5.12. I am shilly-shally and proud of it, lol.


    • I hope you didn’t influence his vote. 🙂
      And yes, you can vote every 24 hours. Or more often if you ‘know’ computers. 🙂

      But I ask every one to vote not more than once every day. This is not the Teen-Choice-or-any-other-stupid-voting, so keep it fair.

        • LOL! I am snorting with laughter here! You two are having an identity crisis. ‘Who am I and if, how many?’ 😀 In need for therapy? Couples retreat?
          Btw, I only voted once. I can’t take these other polls seriously, and I am pretty sure none of the ladies here are in for a “giggling fangirl poll takeover”. We are adults, we’re not 12. Ok ok, sometimes… *cough* but that’s not what I wanted to say! What I wanted to say is: I am really curious!


          • Our couples retreat starts in a few months again. I hope my hometown will survive the two of us. 🙂

            Oh, but not everyone visiting this blog seems to be an adult. We had a McDanno takeover once a few months back. More than 200 votes in less than an hour for the same episode from two IPs. People obviously have too much time on their hands. After that, the poll was pulled and I now have the guards up, if it’s an ‘important’ poll I use the IP check. But not with this one. But as most know, any security can be manipulated. But seriously why would I invest that much time and energy to manipulate a fun poll? What is the gain of that? Don’t get it.

            And don’t even start with those ridiculous polls where you can vote as many times as you want. That is just stupid.

            • Maybe LCDR McBear can watch over you? Is he coming along with Cokie? I think he is needed!

              And you had a McDanno takeover? LOL!!!! Maybe I should start a McKono takeover. But then.. I am not that obsessed. You know… real life and all… my real life, not U-Turn Danny’s. 😉


              • I only thought that the good news about that twitter account was that nobody would dare block him. Never considered that he might do some blocking himself. Probably still a bad idea but could provide a few giggles for a fandom that takes itself a bit too seriously.

                Not gonna happen. Right Sam? Right Cokie?


                • Actually McBear googled McDanno the other day while on his assignment and overhearing someone talking about it. Oh my, I think he blushed quite a bit.
                  Not sure sure though if he even wants to take part in that twitter craziness. Our sweet, innocent (well, that depends on who you ask) bear on twitter. I don’t think that is a good idea. But he hasn’t asked about it yet. So let sleeping bears… and all that. 😉


  3. I voted for 525 to counter the vote for 607. Not naming any names, mind you, but the valley girl? Come on. Not naming names. Not naming names…………


    • Pfft! Go on. Name names 😉 . I stand by my love for 6.07. I don’t know what ‘valley girl’ means, but I liked Lynn. She was refreshing. But more important: I am always and forever in love with 3P-Mcgarrett!!! Playful, protective and private. Give me some of his smiles at the end and a glimpse of happiness and I am happy too. Throw ‘no D’ in the mix and it’s my episode!
      But btw, I voted for 5.25 too. 😀 Yet 6.07 or 5.19 comes first.

      • I agree. 5.25 made my second list. Probably should have been on my first hands down, but I had already picked 5. That’s what tomorrow is for.


      • I also voted for 6.07. I really liked that episode. And the girl isn’t so bad either. I still DO believe in Cath and Steve, and I’m confident they will be back together. But in the meantime I want Steve to live a little. To have some fun. To get out a bit. Why the heck not?! He lived like a monk for so many years, he deserves to have some fun.
        And if for some reason, that I will never understand, Cath and Steve won’t work out in the end, I will be open minded about any other woman coming along that Steve might be able to fall in love with. I doubt that will be Lynn though. 🙂
        And give us a glimpse of happines, and I will be happy too. True happiness I believe he will only find with Catherine, but a tiny little bit of happy will do at the moment. 😉
        So, yes, 6.07 kinda rocked. But not as much as 5.25, and dare I even say that I also voted for 6.03? Oh boy, don’t hate me, but I loved the ending. Not the outcome, but watching these two acting their little hearts out was amazing.
        And then I voted for 5.19 (LOVE that one) and for 5.13, well maybe it was 5.12 and 6.09… who knows. 🙂

        • GOSH! Remember? Give our Steve happiness. That is all I wish for. And don’t forget Cath was in 6.07 too. Sorta. In Steve’s thoughts looking at the selfie.
          Oh and 6.03. Yes, the ending of 6.03 was acting-perfection! Esp. on Alex side may I add (because something related to MB distracted me, sorry, just a little bit but… 😦 ), you could SEE how Steve’s walls came up… Oh my, maybe I should vote again for completely different episodes? Gah…


  4. I’m confused. I voted for one episode and then posted something. When I went back to finish voting for the others it says my vote was already counted. Must we complete our ballot all at once or forfeit the rest?


  5. Thank you for the recaps of the episodes – gone are the days when I remember each epi in detail. There are only a few I’ve seen more than once these days.

    That being said – couldn’t come up with 5. I voted for the golf episode – I just had to, LOL. and 5.25. That’s it.

    • I’m with you Kimphin1. And you voted for one more than me. LOL! I not only haven’t seen recent seasons more than once (save 5.25) I didn’t even have to put forth any effort for them to fade from memory. Oh how I hope for better coming up. Although I’m actually dreading the airing of the next episode. I hope they’ll prove me wrong.
