Jerry was introduced to us and Five-0 back in season four. Some were delighted, some found his character annoying most of the time. I certainly fit into the latter category. There are only very few episodes where I thought he was an enrichment for the show. Very few episodes indeed.
I could very well do without him. But lately he was less annoying for me than the previous years. That mostly has to do with that he wasn’t used as much as before. And honestly, I didn’t miss him one bit.
As you can see I am not a big fan of the character. And I don’t care much about the actor. Nope, never been a fan of Lost either. That’s a show that has always been lost on me. 😉
The most annoying part about Jerry’s character was his constant asking about a badge. That always made my blood boil.
This man does not deserve a badge in any form or shape. And if the badge he is wearing is the real deal, and anything other than an honorary badge… I think that would be an insult for any law enforcement officer. Hell, for any officer. Period.
This man has no training, no skills, heck, he wouldn’t even pass the fitness test. I know, I know, he is suddenly portrayed as this computer genius. But when he was introduced to us he didn’t use any computers, phones or anything. A twelve-year-old had to explain the use of a computer to him. He himself told Chin he has no skills whatsoever.
But that is beyond the point. This man is not Task Force material. Simple as that. And no matter what he did, or does, gives him the right to wear a badge equally to Steve, Grover, Danny, Chin or Kono. Or even Pua. He at least went to the Academy.
And don’t you dare even mention that Steve wasn’t a cop either. Even putting his name and Jerry’s in one sentence in that content is a sin. I don’t think anyone can doubt Steve’s qualification.
Just NO. Giving Jerry a real badge, with privileges like a real badge is just wrong. And in my eyes, renders Five-0 totally ridiculous. And I can tell you right now, it will change my approach to watching Five-0 and to this site drastically.
But let’s not get ahead of ourselves; this might not be the real deal. I will be OK with an honorable badge for his help. BUT with no privileges regarding Five-0. And certainly no field work whatsoever.
So, what do you think? Should Jerry get a real badge and become a member of Five-0?
