  1. I hate to judge an episode before I see it, but this sounds disappointing for the 200th episode. I thought the 100th was outstanding and I do think the creativity has diminished over the years almost to the point of some episodes being boring. I also think H50 has become more of an ensemble show and that saddens me because Alex is the main reason I watch along with McRoll sightings. Just my two cents and I sure hope I get pleasantly surprised and the 200th will be as good as the 100th.

  2. They say dissolving a business partnership is a little like getting a divorce, so I am hoping that Steve and Danny realize their relationship is toxic and give total custody of the restaurant to Kamekona (and may we never hear about that failed story line again.)

    BTW, I want this episode to be good so I will keep hoping until I am either pleasantly surprised or just disappointed again.
