7.03 He Moho Hou
When FBI Profiler Alicia Brown (Claire Forlani) finds a body in her bed, she is forced to join McGarrett in the hunt for the chess-piece killer. Also, Kono reconnects with a former surfing competitor (Kanya Sesser), who is now a disabled and homeless war vet.
CBS translated He Moho Hou to New Player
Sorry, no real review. I won’t waste my time with a less than mediocre episode.
What I liked:
Steve and Alicia
I would love to see more of them, and it would be great if she came back after this case is over. They make a great team. Loved every scene they had together.
Just one question, how the heck did she not wake up when that guy was put in her bed? I at least hoped they would say she was drugged or something. This was stupid.
Some pretty they threw at us. Nice to watch.
What I didn’t like:
Seriously, some of the comments on twitter and other places made me wanna puke. Brilliant and clever detective? Give me a break. For once he acts like a detective and people are overjoyed. Jeez.
For example, the chase-scene. That is how you do it, one goes directly after the perp, the other tries to cut him off. Nothing brilliant or clever about it. On the contrary, if Dannoying would have let Steve do his job without keeping him from it, there would have been no reason to fire a single shot in a parking garage. Steve would have been on him before the baddie ever had the chance to car-jack that poor civilian. So, in leiCa’s words, STFU Danny.
Next scene that was oh so great. Good cop/bad cop. Yes, good idea by Steve, but I only found it sad. Sad that Danny’s comeback had been ‘that’s not very difficult’. How pathetic and sad is it that he practically disagrees with his boss on principle. Not because his partner is wrong or his ideas stupid, no, just because he’s a jerk. STFU.
Shooting after the bad guys. How often did the baddies get away in a car or on a bike because even Steve is too stupid to hit a moving target? Sorry, but these are highly trained professionals, Steve is a freaking SEAL, and they are not able to ever stop a fleeing suspect. Just ugh.
Kono and the sad story about her surf buddy. Nicely played. But WHY? Why the heck did we have to waste all this screen time on that story? I was NOT interested in it at all. Not one bit. I want to watch a crime show, not a soap opera. Way too much personal stuff this season.
Kono in the bag. As soon as Steve called her I knew what was going to happen. ROFL at all the people being surprised about that outcome. And please, how the heck did she fit in there? That was so ridiculous. Oh and by the way, not cool to kill five people without even giving them the chance to surrender. NOT cool.
Chin and Sara. Nothing new, old scenes from last week. Get it over with.
Kamekona and Flippa. No words.
As you can see, I was not well entertained. This was way below standard. It barely gets an OK from me. And if it weren’t for Steve and Alicia, I would never watch this episode again.
The only really interesting thing about this episode was the promo for next week. 😉
leiCa, I hope you don’t mind me stealing two of your ‘inventions’. 😉

And please remember, I don’t write reviews with the claim to be objective. This is how I perceived this episode. If you disagree… that is just fine. 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.
