So, another week, another show, another review. Honestly, this won’t take that long, because frankly, there isn’t that much to say about the latest episode of Hawaii Five-0. But we’ll see. Let’s just begin and see where it leads us.
McG comes home, finding his dog barking at the door. OK, before I go into that, let me say something about McG and the dog. Yes, we do love Eddie, and I am no exception to that. But why the heck does McG have a dog? Who is taking care of Eddie when McG and Junior pulling in long hours at work? Why isn’t he with them at HQ? I am sorry, but people who work full time should not have a dog. Is he left alone at home for hours on end? That is a question I think should be addressed on the show. Because, face it, McG does not have the time to properly care for Eddie. And leaving your dog at a dog sitter all day is not a solution. Don’t have time? Do not get a dog. Get a couple of cats instead. 😉
Anyway, back to the barking Eddie. I didn’t think for a minute that he sniffed out the bomb, no, I thought he knew someone had been in the garage. Someone who didn’t belong there. And that is what he was pointing out by barking. What I don’t get is how Steve knew that there was a bomb in said garage. That was just ridiculous.And true to his character he would have checked the garage before alerting anyone. Bad guy could have still been there. This whole thing was so wrong! But hey, this is a TV show, yeah, yeah, how often have we heard that?
What I loved about this was the interaction between Steve and Lou. “Who have you pissed off now?” “The list is long” LOL
Next, we see Junior and Tani on their way back home (or wherever they were going) after a morning of surfing. And yes, of course, Super-Tani is awesome at surfing. She is becoming a more unbelievable character than Kono ever was. And Kono was one I never believed her superpower badasserie. But Super-Tani is even worse. Big mouth, but so far not much to back it up. As you probably noticed, I don’t like her. Can’t stand her attitude, her whole being is getting on my nerves.So, they are coming to the cave-in, and are helping the people getting out of there. But shortly after they are trapped in there too after an explosion causes the tunnel to be sealed off. Ups.
Let me start my next complaint about the researchers of the show. Don’t they have medical advisers? Ever heard of blast injuries? Junior, being so close to the blast would not walk around and be just fine like that after such a blast. But it got worse; we’re coming to that. 😉And of course, we have the typical people in that little group. Raise your hand if you didn’t know that know-it-all-impatient-guy would use the jackhammer and make it worse for all involved. Mostly for himself. Served the jerk right, if you ask me. Let’s stick with this location before we get to the other part of the story, which wasn’t another case, thank you very much. So far just one story in one episode. I approve. 😉
OK, yes, it was nice to see Eddie all dressed up getting to the rescue. But seriously, how stupid, STUPID was all this?! Why in the world didn’t they go down the ventilation shaft in the first place? I thought the ventilation was tiny holes in the wall for air to be blown in. Not this giant big ass shaft leading right into the tunnel. Oh, I hear you, turning it off would only give them 20 minutes of air. ROFL. Ever heard of getting a hose, pipe, tube down there to pump oxygen into the tunnel? Or even get tanks down there, so they can breathe. This whole rescue was ridiculous from the get go. I laughed out loud when I saw the ventilation shaft. So STUPID.And one more thing, if you get people up with a rope, don’t you check the rope every time before you lower it again? How neglect was that?! Junior should sue the idiot responsible. Speaking of Junior, falling from that height… he would have broken bones, serious injuries… and not just a concussion. Ridiculous, or saying it with my favorite word of the review… STUPID.
Thankfully, everyone got out after they spent their time moving Styrofoam rocks from A to B. They looked really real.
So, let’s talk a minute about the other part of the show. The plot behind the cave-in. Well, one word comes to mind. 😉
And of course, he got away, faking his death a second time. Or maybe not. Who cares? Oh, and one more thing, did we really need to kill all those Feds? A lot of dead people in this episode.But there were parts I really enjoyed. Adam taking the lead and Dannoying traipsing uselessly behind. I do enjoy Adam. I mean, it’s ridiculous that he has all these skills, but I truly like that he is more a part of Five-0 and more invested in it than a certain brilliant detective. People not seeing that that person is on his way out, are just blind. Speaking of blind, hey, PL, we are not blind. We see what you’re doing. Cath 2.0? Well, this can go two ways. Either, Steve sees what he is missing, or Cath is getting replaced. And this is difficult for me, because I really like Quinn. But I think they are doing her a disservice to make her so much like Lt. Catherine Rollins. She is like a twin. And that is not good. She should be her own person. That would be awesome. Not a replacement, a double, or clone, or whatever they are thinking. But I really do like her regardless of that. So, after some traipsing through the jungle, all is well in the world and we see the whole team gathering at Steve’s. And yes, Eddie should get a steak for putting up with this stupidity they put him through. On a side note. Steve looks awesome. And this concludes my review. I was well entertained, probably laughed more than they intended to make anyone laugh, but what the heck! 🙂
A little disclaimer, don’t take any of this too seriously. It’s just TV show. 😉
