I have not even watched the show yet, but I AM pissed already. You all know that I love Five-0. I really, really do. But this has gone too far.
Do NOT read any further if you haven’t watched the show yet. I’m serious… DON’T! This has a major spoiler in it. I would be happy not to know it. 😉
A liver transplant for our hero? Seriously? Are you fucking kidding me!?
If you write for a show, you can’t just sit down and do whatever the hell you want. Yeah, yeah, I know, the Five-0 writers have done some outrageous things, but this takes the cake.
This has consequences I am sure they are not aware of, or they would not have done this. Right? Right!?
A liver transplant, as any organ transplantation has major consequences for the future life of that person. Yes, transplants can save your life, but it will also change your life. For goodness sake, you have a foreign organ in your body. Your body will fight that with all it got. You will have to fight back with some really have medication. Medication that will mess with your body big time.
Yes, you will live, and you can lead a good life… if you’re lucky and all works out well. BUT you will not be a SEAL, or a law enforcement officer of a special task force any longer. You will be behind a desk. You will not be running around chasing bad guys.
This is really big… and stupid in a way I don’t even have words for. I would have sworn that they would not go this road, simply because I thought no TPTB could be this stupid.
I already hear the people saying, oh but we don’t know what the plans are. This might be working all out in the end.
NO, this is a liver transplant. There are facts about it. Facts you can’t and should not ignore.
This show is not fanfiction where you can do whatever you want without consequences because in your next story everything will be fine. This is a TV show (that I used to love to pieces) where everything you do in one episode carries over to the next. Or at least it should.
Without even watching it, I know one thing for sure, this show can’t be the same next season without being totally and completely ridiculous.
But to be honest, it already is.
Not sorry for this rant, I had to get it out. And since this is my blog I can write whatever the hell I want. Without any consequences for the next post. 😉
