Yesterday evening a technician came by to check what is wrong with my phone and internet connection. A nice guy, but he couldn’t help. He at least found out that the main line in front of the house was damaged during work one street over. He didn’t give me any hope that it will be resolved this year. They need to find out where the damage is, then need to repair it. None of that will happen before the new year. That at least was his estimation. “I could be wrong.” His words. Ha. HA!

But that is only half the problem. Inside the house the cables are not able to handle the new fast standard from my cable provider. So, even if they might be able to fix the problem outside, I still won’t be able to get online.

On Monday I have an appointment with Telekom, because a solution to the general problem with the cable provider is not in sight. I might need to change the provider alltogether if I want highspeed access (or any access at all). Of course, that will also take at least four weeks.

So, the year ends just like it started. It SUCKS.

In the meantime, leiCa and Cokie will provide you with fun posts. And Cokie promised to write a review. I can’t, because… see above. No internet means no iTunes.

Peter Lenkov posted a short clip of Five-0’s new member on Instagram. 😉

Not sure, but I think I hear the name Riley when the dog is allowed on the bed. Maybe the dog’s name is Eddie and the character’s Riley? We will see soon enough.

I think it’s a wonderful dog they found; perfect match for McG. I truly hope they won’t screw this up. This could be a great and wonderful addition.

Anything on the Hawaii Five-0 team in season 8?
I hear there’s going to be another new member of the team — but it’s definitely not who (or what!) you’re expecting. “There is a story that’s coming up, it actually was Alex O’Loughlin’s idea,” EP Peter Lenkov says. “I wanted to do a story where the victim left in the wake of a tragedy was a dog who lost its owner. It’s a very emotional, really great story. It’s a dog that’s a drug sniffing service dog that McGarrett ends up adopting. It’s a really emotional journey, but it was his idea to keep the dog, and I thought that was a great one.”

That is a spoiler I already like. I just hope they find a good way how McGarrett will find the time to take care of the dog. You know, a dog is not like a cat which you can leave alone for many hours. Cats don’t mind much. But dogs are very different, so it will be interesting to see how they will handle this.

Season 8 news

H50 - 725-022

As we learned Season 8 will be without Chin and Kono. To be honest, not a huge surprise. At least about Kono. I think that was clear as day that she wouldn’t come back.

With Chin I hoped they would bring him back, but worried that it wouldn’t happen.

I won’t speculate why they didn’t renew their contacts because quite frankly it is not my place to judge. Without facts it’s just stupid blabla to say the one or other thing. And we won’t get any facts. That is the only fact. 😉

Am I sad about this? Well, I am surely sad not to see Steve and Chin working together in season 8. They were a great team.

Honestly, I won’t miss Kono. Her non-existing story with or without Adam was just not my thing at all. I never warmed up to her character.

But I wish Daniel Dae Kim and Grace Park the very best for their future.

Let’s welcome the new characters with open minds. Who knows, we might actually really like them.

‘Hawaii Five-0’ shocker: Grace Park, Daniel Dae Kim exit ahead of season 8

Badge, no badge?


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. 😉
