Three Hits and a Miss in 8.12…
By Cokie and a few additional thoughts by Sam
This “review” has no pictures. Sorry. We’ll be back to “normal” soon. Here we go…
Now, I’m sure you all can see that there are more than three things I liked and one thing I didn’t on this episode, but that was the working title and it just stuck.
I liked this episode. Sure, it had things I did not like, but it kept my interest and I was so glad to see a new episode. I had been going through Steve-drawal. It’s like withdrawal but with Steve. It’s a word. If you look in the dictionary, his picture is right next to the word. Only he has more hair. I’m also having Steve-hair-drawal.
LOL, yeah, I also miss the hair. OK, I will say something shallow and people will tell me it’s not my, but his business, but here it goes. Sorry, but he looks not good with this haircut. He looks tired and way older than he is. Hair, or in this case, no hair does make a difference. Steve, or Alex for that matter, with hair is something I prefer over what we get at the moment. And I am sorry, I really do like Alex, but I don’t like his looks at the moment. Now, take your best shot at me. 😉
Oh, and one more thing, the excuse “I was glad to have a new episode on my TV” or “Glad to see Steve again” is long overused and doesn’t count any longer. It’s just not enough to see a certain character, or not see another. Sorry, it’s just not.
“He pūkoʻa kani ʻāina” – McGarrett and Danny investigate the murder of a private detective whose client was killed the same way, and Adam sends Jessie (Christine Ko) into a dangerous situation with disastrous consequences. Also, Danny’s uncle, Vito (Vincent Pastore), comes to town to help Danny and McGarrett get their restaurant up and running, on HAWAII FIVE-0, Friday, Feb. 2 (9:00-10:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network.
(“He pūkoʻa kani ʻāina” is Hawaiian for “A Coral Reef Strengthens Out into Land”)
I am really, REALLY not interested in meeting any more of Danny’s relatives. Really. Seriously. This whole restaurant business is such a waste in my eyes. Just ugh.
Well, better late than never. 😉
“Nā keiki a Kalaihaohia” – When the corpse of a diamond smuggler is stolen from a graveyard, Five-0 tracks down his partner, Voss (guest star “American Idol” winner Phillip Phillips), who will stop at nothing to retrieve their latest batch of contraband. Also, Adam recruits a new confidential informant, Jessie Nomura (Christine Ko); Tani gets a devastating call; and McGarrett tasks Pua to find his and Danny’s stolen tools, on HAWAII FIVE-0, Friday, Jan. 19 (9:00-10:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network.
(“Nā keiki a Kalaihaohia” is Hawaiian for “The Children of Kalaihoahia”)
Merry Christmas from Cokie, LeiCa and Sam to everyone who celebrates this time in whatever form.
Have a good and peaceful gathering with friends, family and loved ones.
