Hawaii Five-Oh no. Breaking up is hard to do.

Hi, kids. Just in case you were wondering, for this latest blog post I’ve decided to break off a nonexistent relationship with fictional TV series/character. Because I am not delusional at all. So yeah, have fun reading. (Also, I drew anime pictures to illustrate!)

Dearest Hawaii Five-0,

I need to start off by saying that this letter is very difficult for me to write. However, this is something that has been developing for quite some time now, so I hope this won’t come as a complete shock. We’ve had some really great times, but you know it’s been different lately.

What I’m trying to say is: tonight, when you came on CBS Monday at 10pm/9 central, I was not sitting on my living room couch watching you. What else I was doing at the time is not that important. The point is, you were on television, and for the first time in over five weeks, I was not there watching you.

It’s not you, CBS mega-hit Hawaii Five-0, it’s me. Read the rest of this entry »

Fast cars, product placement, & one very unfortunate luau

Tonight on Hawaii Five-0, we opened with gorgeous shots of a traditional Hawaii luau … pretty, colorful, and with a nice little pig roasting in a fire pit.

Then we find out that in the middle of the night, someone dug up the pig, replaced it with the body of a murdered cop, and stuck the cop’s badge in his mouth like an apple.

Hmm. I guess that’s one way to make a statement. (But, moving on…) Read the rest of this entry »

Hawaii Five-0: Shirtless, Cuteness, & Fast Cars

A Five-0 TV review in 60 seconds or less:


This week on Hawaii Five-0, McGarrett needs to get on a ship to rescue some hostages. So naturally, he just takes off his shirt and swims over to the ship.

(But not before he does an entire scene of dialogue completely shirtless.) I’d act like seeing a randomly shirtless McGarrett on this show surprises me, but it really doesn’t anymore. Read the rest of this entry »

Surfing in Hawaii? Forget the sharks. Watch out for sniper rifles.

This week on Hawaii Five-0: A surfer named Ian was shot in the chest by a sniper while out in the ocean competing in a surfing competition.

Also, Kono and Danno had a really cute scene together. Maybe they should be a couple. (Except for that would be the most kitchy rhyming names on TV since the erstwhile Glee coupling of Finn-Quinn.) Still, wouldn’t they make a nice little unexpected pairing? Read the rest of this entry »

Alex O’Loughlin totally just roundhouse kicked Coach Tanaka from Glee!

Season 1, episode 5 of Hawaii Five-O.

Alex O’Loughlin was shirtless again. Within the first three minutes of the episode. Sound familiar?

Yeah, I’d say this is starting to get old. But it’s not. Read the rest of this entry »

Hawaii Five-0: Episode Four

Considering the astounding level of awesomeness that was last week’s Hawaii Five-O, I decided today to try watching the show on a real TV during its regular airtime. (Not sometime Tuesday or Wednesday evening by way of … but actually bother to turn on the TV and watch it Monday night at 10pm with the rest of the country.)

Because Hawaii Five-O was just that good last week. So I didn’t even want to even wait a few days before watching this week’s episode.

Of course we had all the classic McGarrett/Danno bickering we’ve come to expect: McGarrett’s upset with Danno. Danno’s upset with McGarrett. Repeat.

Also, McGarrett gets roped into playing a game of basketball with a convict at a state prison. And Danno of course has to point out that Steve the former football star is not nearly as athletically gifted when it comes to playing basketball.

“You know, the other guy putting the ball in the hoop is bad,” he tells him.

“Danno, shut up.” Read the rest of this entry »

Thick Crust; Extra Bullets, Please – Hawaii Five-0

This week’s opening scene – with the entire team hanging out together at a football game – was adorable. Danno’s little daughter is the cutest thing on the face of the planet. And when she fist-bumps McGarrett? So sweet. I wanted to hug them both.

The main plot this week, though, is about a gang of criminals trying to muscle out another gang by using guns they smuggle in to Hawaii in pizza boxes. What, you don’t smuggle your guns inside of pizza boxes? Read the rest of this entry »
