Well, I guess no one expected two awesome episodes in a row. Right?
To be honest I expected something worse than what we actually got. OK, OK, this wasn’t a great episode, but I was kind of entertained. It had some really great Steve faces (always a win), a nice second story (often not the case) and… ok, yeah, you got me there, a totally stupid, STUPID crime of the week.
Where to begin? Well, I don’t have that much to say about any of this, so let’s just start with the second story-line. Jerry, the elephant. Eh, I mean, Jerry and the elephant.
I actually really liked this part. Oh my goodness, hold the presses, I liked something that involved Jerry. Will wonders never cease? But honestly, who doesn’t like a story about an abused animal that’s been saved and shipped off to a happy ending? For sure not the millions of people watching all the YouTube videos about saved cats, dogs, whatever cute animal you can come up with. So, really no surprise there.
I thought this story was well told, involved all the ‘strange’ Five-0 characters in a good way. I even liked Eric in this one. OK, liked him is maybe a bit much. I still think he’s an idiot who can’t behave like a normal person. But he was willing to help, so, points for that.
Loved how willing Max was to help, also Kamekona. And I enjoyed Jerry and his sister. Had a good laugh when Eric asked about the blood relations.
You know, I never watch any circus performances that involves animals. Never went when my grandmas wanted to take me. Wild animals do not belong behind bars. That is the reason why I don’t even go to the zoo. I know, some say they do good work there. But they should do their good work in the animal’s natural habitat. Not where the animals don’t belong. And they only have to do good work, because we humans destroyed the animal’s natural habitats. It’s our fault that many species are at risk. Because we humans are the real animals.
Sorry for the rant. But just thinking about what some animals have to endure makes me incredibly sad. Those poor creatures deserve to be treated with respect. Every living being deserves to be treated with respect, and when I see how some people treat their own pets, I get mad.
Anyway. I really liked this part of the episode. Not counting the really, I mean really bad CGI. And I won’t even touch the subject how very difficult it is to find the right balance of freeing those poor animals without breaking the law. Did they break the law? Yeah, for sure. Do we care? No. And rightly so.
Absolutely LOVED the ending with Steve and Jerry. That was so very cool. Loved it.
One more thing about Jerry. No not, I repeat, do not give that man a badge. Ever. I will be spitting mad if that ever happens.
So, since this was a story line of its own, you can vote for it. 😉
Alright, let’s move on to the main part of the episode. The really stupid part. Sorry to say that. But apart from some really great
scenes faces from Steve, this part was really to forget.
Just some silly notes:
How the heck will Robocop (sorry, he is NO Ironman) drive a car with those feet?
Laughed my head off when Steve looked down that slope and said he (Robocop) could be anywhere. Seriously? That thing could barely walk; how would he get away without drawing attention after tumbling down that hill?
They all signed confidentiality agreements, but it seemed they talked to everybody about it.
The suit is indestructible, but t-boning the car knocked him out? That is what they came up with to stop that stupid thing? Jeez.
Loved all their hiding and ducking. 😉
How many lines did Danny have? Why was he even there? To stand around and look bored? Writers, if you have him there… use him. This is getting ridiculous.
Thank you writers for finally letting Steve tell Danny how absolutely old those jokes are. Enough! Please. I’m begging you. 🙂
Uh oh, Kono starting to doubt Adam. LOL
Chin and that new bike. Sorry, but he looks stupid on it. Who would trade a Harley for that thing? No one. And put on a damn helmet!!
Did I mention how much I loved Steve’s faces in this ep? 🙂
So, what did you think about this part of the show?
Told ya I don’t have much to say about the episode. Except for some really nice Steve scenes there wasn’t much to enjoy about it. I was kind of entertained, and the show wasn’t a total disaster, but it wasn’t good either.
