Episode 8.25

That’s it, folks. Finale! A big fat shout out to Alex O’Loughlin for always elevating the material he is given. His Alexpressions, commitment and talent were needed to save a lot of episodes.

Let’s go! leiCa


Hm, the guy who carefully puts the single feather into the organic eggs-crate has a pretty awesome job, too.

Episode 8.24

WOW! I will just “WOW” if that is okay. Thanks to Alex O’Loughlin for knowing what H50 is all about. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. Finally an episode I can file again into my internal best episodes folder. I. Am. In. Love. With. This. Episode. Period.

Now I’ve just chosen the pic(k)s. 26. Twenty-freaking-six. And I have no idea what to do with them other than staring. I hate myweakself. I need some love. And coffee. Or better alcohol. Help. Definitely help. leiCa


Heart of the show takeover #2!

Episode 8.23

“You appear to be an intelligent young man. But when you open your mouth, the effect disappears.” Best description ever. And oh so true. The light is always faster than the sound. The sound carries reality.

We again had tons of Alexpressions. Enjoy. leiCa


Just a tip, Steve. Alcohol can: burn, sterilize, warm you up, quench, make people appear beautiful.

Homeopathic grains can: molder.

Episode 8.22

You’ve got no idea how many perfect snaps I’ve got from this episode. So this went a little bit overboard and now I’ve got brain freeze. And I had to stop myself from choosing even more pictures. I don’t think this is the best I’ve ever done, lol, so at least enjoy the pictures… leiCa

Danny didn’t crack me up.

I’ve seen an episode of Sesame Street. And the Cookie Monster shared some cookies. I love the Cookie Monster.

Have fun! leiCa


When you had to park next to a poorly parked car, that’s gone later. Now your car’s the only one standing diagonal in the parking lot. And you’ve got to kill everyone who’s watching.

Episode 8.19

I loved the McGarrett storyline. It was about time we got something like this again. The scene near the end, when Steve met all the victim’s family members was beautiful and very well acted by Alex O’Loughlin, with all his different emotions shown on his face. This man is capable of telling a whole story with just his facial expressions. The Alexpressions. leiCa


Dear Karma, I’ve got a long list of people you missed.

Episode 8.18

If only the writing of this show would be so exceptional as Alex O’Loughlin’s acting or directing…

I am completely in awe what AOL has done as an director and at the same time as an actor. That must have been really challenging.

The vibe of this episode was totally different than any other episode. He played with the light, the camera angle, the pace. When the cops got out of the car they were running towards the camera and the camera at the same time ‘ran’ towards the cops. That created more tension and action than any slow-motion could do it. You felt like being right there. Same goes with the blue room scenes. For example when Lou moved around Jessie’s back to the right the camera went to the left. That was perfect. Tension pure.

The whole chase scenes were terrific. Did we ever see Steve actually turning the wheel for the spins and turns in such a way? That felt so realistic and – again – put the viewers right into the scene. And the shower curtain scene was great. The look through that hole, so good. Loved all that!

The actress that played Brooke was amazing. She sold the pain, the self-doubt, the anger, the disgust and the hope. She owned the scenes she was in. The filming of the ashes gone with the wind was great. Kudos to Alex again.

I thought that most of the actors were even more in the moment, more in their scenes than normally. Especially with Chi, Ian and Christine I got the feeling they wanted to be extra special just because of Alex. He seemed to get them, he seems to be an actor director or better an actor’s director.

So the director O’Loughlin did it different, he changed the atmosphere, but he didn’t exaggerate. He didn’t get lost in it, he didn’t do too much. It felt like art, art-y but without the -ficial.

Very well done.

Hope he gets more chances to direct. That was outstanding and saved the show.

Applause. leiCa
