Hawaii Five-0: “Hana ‘a’a Makehewa (Desperate Measures)”

One of my oldest and dearest friends used to genuinely fret over The X-Fileswhen they would imperil Mulder and Scully, so it became a running decade-long joke about “Oh my God, they’re gonna kill ____.” So, when we began this Christmas episode of H50with a bomb strapped to the neck […]

Hawaii Five-0 “Palekaiko (Paradise)”

The 5-0s track a honeymoon killer a la A Perfect Getaway this week; we do NOT, however, get a shirtless Timothy Olyphant alongside a shirtless Alex O’Loughlin, and somebody decided that Daniel Dae Kim was too pretty, so he had to wear a wetsuit. Boooo. We get some tangential family […]

Hawaii Five-0 “Heihei (Race)”

Now y’all know I love me some Alex O’Loughlin, but I came to the startling realization in this episode that boyfriend is skinny. We open with him wearing a wifebeater while trying to put his house back together and all I could think was that the boy needs mashed potatoes! […]

Hawaii Five-0 “Po’ipu (The Siege)”

Well it was an “all hands” kinds of week on Hawaii Five-0, where everybody got to be in on the case in pretty much equal measure. Awesome. The only hitch was some weird use/misuse of the guest cast. They brought in the saucy and stunning Emmanuelle Vaugier, had her strip […]

Friday Night Lights “The Right Hand of the Father”

Where would we be if no one had daddy issues? Some of my favorite shows like Supernatural, Lost, NCIS, and even this season’s Hawaii Five-0 would never have made such an impact on you or me if these characters didn’t have unresolved issues with their fathers. The same can be […]

Hawaii Five-0 “Mana’o (Belief)”

Scott Caan gets a showcase episode with “”Mana’o (Belief)”, which focuses on Danny’s attempt to clear the name of his former partner, Hanamoa, whose charred corpse is discovered at a Luau at the beginning of the episode. Working the case puts Kelly right in the path of one of the […]

Hawaii Five-0: “Ho’apono (Accept)”

Alex O’ Loughlin and Adam Beach go mano a mano this week. Sadly, only O’Loughlin is shirtless (foiled!) The episode centers on McGarrett getting onto the USS Missouri to talk down Graham Wilson (Beach), a former Navy SEAL accused of murdering his wife, who has taken tourists on the ship […]

Hawaii Five-0 “Ko’olauloa (North Shore of O’ahu)”

Kono gets a front-and-center arc this week when her surfing mentor and second dad (who covered her medical expenses when she blew out her knee), Ian Adams, is felled by a bullet to the chest during an exhibition surf. The suspects include Kevin Sorbo (ding ding ding) as Carlton Bass, […]

Renewals A Go-Go at CBS and CW

WARNING: THIS STORY WAS WRITTEN IN 2011. Ah, Nina (Tassler). Way to save face after the supreme goof of canning Moonlight in the spring of 08. Three Rivers was a bust, but she kept on, and thankfully Alex O’Loughlin is a savvy guy who stayed in the CBS fold, and […]

Hawaii Five-0: “Nalowale (Forgotten/Missing)”

Another dark outing this week and they’re starting to plant seeds for who the McGarretts are beyond the surface. The episode opens with kids on a submarine tour spotting the body of a young blonde woman in the water. The Coast Guard is called and the next thing we see […]
