7.16 Poniu I Ke Aloha
While McGarrett and Danno celebrate Valentine’s Day with their girlfriends, the rest of Five-0 investigates the murder of a man taking a class on how to land women, on HAWAII FIVE-0, Friday, Feb. 10 (9:00-10:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network.
CBS translated Poniu I Ke Aloha to Crazy In Love
This was an episode with dumb, dumber, dumbest and one who tagged along because he’s a good friend.
CBS called this episode Crazy in Love. Huh, I wonder who they are talking about? From the four people trying to have a nice weekend, surely no one is crazy in love. Crazy, well, there was plenty of that. First, there was NutDanny being crazy about his stupid sunglasses.
Then crazy Lynn, not wanting to be kissed by Steve. And of course, crazy Lynn and Amlissa getting adjoining rooms for a romantic weekend. That was not just crazy, that was plain stupid. Steve was clearly not happy to see Danny outside of work. The verdict is still out about the two thinking the boys would have any fun with what they had planned. Spa treatment? Seriously?
Maybe their poor planning was the reason it was more than obvious that only the girls have any kind of feeling and commitment invested into these relationships. Most of the episode I actually thought they would make a great couple. I think it was painfully obvious what Steve’s take-away from spending time with Lynn is. And Danny isn’t any better, nope, I think even worse.
I don’t have a problem with it, no, absolutely not. They are all adults and having a relationship just for the sex is fine when all agree on it. Although Steve does make an effort to at least pretend to play along, Danny couldn’t care less.
The Yoga incident was the best example for it. Steve at least showed up, but played dumber than dumb, and was out of it faster than you can unroll your yoga matt. Had me laughing though. Steve, who is a trained SEAL can’t hold his position for ten seconds? A guy who knew yoga positions in season one is a total loser at it now? Sure. 🙂 I bet he and Catherine had tons of fun practicing ‘yoga’ positions. Just saying. I thought it was hilarious how Steve made fun of this whole exercise.
But at least he showed up, while Danny didn’t even bother.
Speaking of Danny. Yes, he again was a total idiot, especially with the kid. But believe it or not it was the very first time I was not bothered by it. Maybe that is Steve’s fault. LOL. Steve was the only adult and mature person during this staycation. Or it’s because I just gave up and don’t care anymore.
And despite the ridiculous setting I truly enjoyed watching Steve. Yeah, yeah, what else is new. I loved Steve and Danny’s conversation on the balcony. Simply because Steve told Danny what an idiot he is. And he’s right, Danny will never ever be in a good relationship as long he’s not honest with his partner. It’s worthless to tell said partner what you think said partner wants to hear. Be yourself and see what happens. Steve knows that and lives by it.
In 419 Steve said he knows people. Never had there been truer words on Five-0. And it is just a joy watching Steve using his people skills. If it is keeping Danny from becoming a total ass, or pretending to have fun when he clearly has none.
As a side note, kudos to the make-up department. They did justice to the scars. They even remembered to ‘mess-up’ the tattoo.
Anyone still thinking that there is any form of love involved between Lynn and Steve, or Danny and Amlissa must be blind, crazy, or both. Sorry, but it couldn’t be more obvious if they were carrying signs saying ‘casual sex relationship’.
“We wanna show you guys how much we appreciate you both.” ROFLMAO – yeah, commitment and true love right there.
I have nothing against Lynn. I’m sure she is someone Steve had a few good times in bed with, but that is all there is. And this episode made that crystal clear.
Oh, and by the way, if I would care about someone I would not tell him to enjoy a beer while I know he shouldn’t have any alcohol. And for sure not early in the morning. And if I cared about someone like Steve, I for sure would not drag him to a stupid weekend with his workpartner next door. I would know what the person I cared about would love to do with a weekend off work. You can bet your ass about that.
You know, although I enjoyed this part of the show (to a degree) I would rather see a weekend off that actually fits the characters. This whole show was to fancy some viewer’s fantasies. And I think they did a bad job at that.
Although I wonder what a weekend off for Danny would look like. We never learned what he enjoys in his time off, other than sitting in his underwear and watching football. Spending time with his kids. Fine and good. But what does HE enjoy? I only remember him complaining about everything. No matter what others did for fun over the weekend, Danny hated it all.
I’m pretty sure we all could plan a weekend for Steve that he would more than enjoy. But for Danny? I can’t come up with anything. But thankfully I don’t have to. LOL
All in all, I tremendously enjoyed watching Steve; but the rest of this Hilton visit was just meh. To put it nicely.
OK, so much for that part of the episode, let’s talk about the crime of the week. Seriously? The show wants us to show a guy who treats women like trash? Like they are objects you can own with the right plan?
And there we have more crazy. Like the crazy dude trying to scam people by selling them idiotic tips to score with women. Can it get any more disgusting?
Yeah, it actually can. At the end of the episode that dude is not in custody, but free to continue with his scam. Why? Didn’t he commit a crime?
Why on earth was he even out of custody so that the other crazy guy, who actually was crazy in love, could take a shot at him? Or at least try to.
And why did Kono and Chin take him along for the ride to the high-price hooker? He knew where she lived, couldn’t he just tell them? But the best part of that was Kono cuffing him to the headrest. LMAO. Doesn’t she know that you can easily pull out the head rests? I so hoped the guy would do that and wait outside the car for them to return. Just to show Kono her stupidity.
This part of the show didn’t really give me anything. How sad is it that I thought the BlaBlaNothing at the Hilton was better than the crime of the week?
So, there you have it, my short review for yet another barely OK episode. With some great Steve shots, but honestly, that is pretty much all that was great lately. Let’s hope for some awesomeness to return soon.

I don’t claim in any way that my opinion is the right and only one. This is supposed to be fun, so, don’t take any of this too seriously. Always remember, this is just a TV show.
