The end of the year is near; time for the annual poll for your favorite episode.
So, what was your favorite in 2016? Was it one from season six, or did you like all of season seven better?
Pick your three top episodes. The poll will be open until the new year.
And yes, I do know the review for 7.11 is still missing. It will come.
Actually, I have a hard time deciding on just three episodes. I think 2016 brought us many truly awesome episodes. Yes, there were some real duds, too. But all in all I think 2016 was a really good year for H50.
I know, I know… I do complain a lot about a lot of stuff on Five-0. But I always say why I don’t like something, and I think I always also point out the stuff that I do like.
And despite my complaints, even despite being pissed off at the show at times, I truly, dearly love it. Five-0 is still my favorite show. And no complaining about the story not going my way, or the show doing some very, let’s say questionable things, and plain dumb things… will change that.
I have made my peace with Five-0 which doesn’t mean I will simply enjoy the ride. LOL. No, it means I will take it as it is… a TV show. And it is not worth to lose any sleep over it, or to get involved in any ‘wars’ on twitter or whatever social media.
I have my opinion about the show, and no one will change that. People hate certain characters? Fine, be my guest. Some or many don’t agree with my opinion? Fine by me.
I LOVE the show. I don’t agree with all that is happening (off and on-screen), far from it. But I can’t change any of that. And everyone who thinks any part of this show will be changed or has been changed by (them) complaining about it… is simply delusional.
And one more thing that has been bugging me for a few months now. There are a lot of people out there who don’t like Five-0 anymore. Who complain about the show not going their way over and over and over. Who spew nothing but negativity.
Guys, that is getting annoying. I have a suggestion for all those people… if you hate it so much, go watch another show. Plenty out there that might interest you.
And NO, I am not saying you’re not free to express your opinion. But why only almost always negative stuff? If there is nothing about Five-0 that makes you happy… then why the heck are you still watching? Oh, there are things that you think are great? Then why the heck aren’t you sharing that with the world, too?
A little love here and there will be good for you, for us, for everyone. It might even bring a smile to some faces.
And now I will step down from my little soapbox. 🙂
