8.02

So, we finally watched the episode. I really liked it. I loved Eddie, but was a bit disappointed about the amount of screen-time. I hope we’ll see a lot more of him.

Looking forward to the integration of Junior, I think he will be an interesting and likeable character.

Loved Steve and Grover, a great pairing.

The case was way too predictable to be interesting.

The highlights surely were Steve and Eddie. Such an adorable pair. 😉 Their scenes were the best parts of the episode.

All in all, I have nothing much to complain about. It was, for me, a very enjoyable episode.
(By the way, this was Sam’s POV)

8.01 “Review”

This won’t be a full review, or even any kind of an actual review. Since iTunes took forever to offer H50, I wasn’t able to really watch it before Tuesday. And since I am leaving for a vacation this Friday, I won’t post a review for the episode. And probably not for the next couple of episodes either, but we’ll see.

But please feel free to discuss it. I will make a post on Sunday, so that you can also discuss 8.02 which will actually be 8.03.

So, what did I think about the season premiere?

Well, I was thrilled to see Steve again. Large and in charge. That was great.

I like Tani, although so far she really doesn’t have her own character. Feels like a mix of Chin and Kono. But I will wait and watch what they will make of her. She sure has potential.

Have they listened to the hundreds of comments on various entertainment sites about the unbearable whiny sidekick? Because… <drum roll here> this Danny I liked. I hope Dannoying stays off the islands and we can keep this version. It is still very hard to listen to SC without yelling for him to use some kind of speech rhythm, but that has nothing to do with the character.

The restaurant idea. Ugh, give me a break. One question about it just to make it real. How in the world would they be able to even finance that place? That this will be a year-long project is ridiculous.

I liked the action, and the fights. But honestly, this episode had no real story, no purpose. What the heck was all this about? Sorry, but there have been way better season openers in the previous years. I am really glad there was no SOTB for this kind of premiere. There was nothing spectacular or great about it.  But it wasn’t bad either.

All in all it was an OK episode for me. I had fun watching it. And isn’t that what the show should be about? Fun watching it?

For now, that is enough for me.
