9.13 – Ke iho mai nei ko luna

Adam, Junior and Tani travel to the bottom of the Pacific Ocean when a murder takes place in a remote underwater lab, and the killer may still be on board, on HAWAII FIVE-0, Friday, Jan. 18 (9:00-10:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network.

CBS translated Ke iho mai nei ko luna to Those Above Are Descending

This will be a rather short review, with almost no pictures. But it will give you a place to talk about it.

Let me tell you something about my household. Imagine a friend of mine would come by, say around breakfast time. Here is how it would go at my place. My friend and my daughter would share what’s already on the table, and I would go back into the kitchen and make more pancakes. Or whatever else my friend would want for breakfast.

Let’s envision this scene….

“Hey, Steve, come on in. Did you have breakfast?”

“Nah, I’m good. Where’s Gracie?”

“At the table. You sure you don’t want pancakes. The griddle is hot.”

“Hey, Grace. Man, those do look good, Danny. Maybe I will take a couple.”

“Want some bacon? It’s frying right now.”

“Yeah, sure. Thanks.”

Of course that is just me. Oh wait, I am sure that, or a variation of it, is what would happen in every normal person’s household. But we all know that Dannoying is not a normal person. He is one to be rude, mean and insulting toward his so called best friend. So much so, that even his own daughter is annoyed by him.

But enough of that cretin, let’s have a look at the rest of the episode. Oh, but wait. He has an equally scintillating scene while they were on the boat near the end of the show.

I really don’t have too much to say. The episode was filled with lies, theft, murder, which is par for the course, but for some reason I had trouble following all that was happening underwater.

I too must confess it wasn’t really that interesting what happened below. The whole plot was again very predictable, and really not worth mentioning.

The minute Junior, Adam and Tani figured out their air supply was disappearing, they realized why the one woman asked for an oxygen tank.

I had a really good laugh about that. Give that hyperventilating woman a paperback, not an oxygen tank. A blind person could see that she was the one.

Too late… she realized they figured her out.

She locks them inside the chamber, steals the rest of the oxygen tanks, steals their Little Yellow Submarine and races to the surface while giving herself the bends.

You would think she knew how to get safely to the surface. Guess she was in a hurry. 😉vlcsnap-2019-01-23-20h56m36s683

On the surface, Steve and Danny learn their friends are incommunicado, so they race to the dive site and somehow make it before the Coast Guard which was already nearby. I KNOW that ship goes faster than that!

LOL, yeah, that was kinda odd.

When Steve learns his friends and the other people down there have only 6 minutes of air left, he launches into SEAL mode and figures out how much air each person will have if they share the two tanks, he and Danny have on board their boat. Amid arguing, he explains the only way to get the tanks down is to free dive them with the weight of the tanks carrying him down 127 meters. I admit, Danny has valid arguments in that Steve will need some of the air in the tank and that Steve will have difficulty getting back to the surface without air.

OK, let’s talk a moment about this part of the show. I don’t understand why they didn’t have the facility in a depth of, say 60 to 80 meters? That would have made everything a lot more believable. On the other hand, even the 127 meters are doable under special circumstances. The world record is 253 meters. So, although a bit far out there, it was all in the realm of possibility. Not likely to succeed, but possible. The science behind it was right. And that is enough for me.

But Steve knows his limits, and something tells me he has done a similar maneuver in the past. So, he asks Danny for help with the tanks while he gets his flippers on… never knew you wear shoes with flippers, but his Chucks looked cute. 🙂 He cuts off Danny’s last argument, or good luck speech or whatever and with his lungs full of air, he descends. I loved when he takes in the air then grabs the tanks and follows them down.

Best scenes of the entire episode. I just loved it.

When Steve reached the inside tank, I must say he looked a bit air-starved. What great acting on Alex’s part throughout all of these water and rescue scenes. He dropped off the tanks and knew he needed to get out of there because one more person on board would be less air for all. Being so depleted of air, I’m not sure how Junior and Tani dragged those tanks to where the others were waiting, but I assume, since they all made it out alive, that they managed to do so. And we will assume that the Coast Guard finally got there in their ten-minute window.

Loved when Steve broke the surface and Danny hauled him in, first with the life preserver and then dragging him onto the boat. Again, Alex played his part so well being depleted of oxygen. His inability to catch a breath to be able to talk and also what appeared to be a killer headache were played out amazingly. I would guess there was an oxygen tank in his future, too, although they never choose to show those scenes.

Despite to have to suspend believe for at least a little bit, way less than on other occasions on this show, I absolutely loved these scenes. All the rest was just meh, in my eyes. But thanks to Steve diving and saving the day the show makes it into ok/good category.

Everyone came home safe and our last scene is Junior making nice with his dad. I’m glad they are making strides to come back to each other, but you know, I really don’t need to see a lot of it. It would be nice for Dad to meet Steve though. That could be a cool scene.

I really don’t need that much background on the supporting cast. I really like Junior, but I don’t need any more of his family. And I am already totally fed up with Tani and her brother.

No new ep this week and they look to be hit or miss for the next few weeks. But I’ll take what I can get.

So, how did you like this episode?

Grande dame Joan Collins is set to pop up on CBS’ Hawaii Five-0, where she will echo her disapproval of one lawman while expressing her fondness for another.

TVLine has confirmed that the Dynasty icon will guest-star as the mother of Claire van der Boom’s Rachel, and thus Danny’s ex-mother-in-law who has never liked him.

Appearing in the 18th episode of Season 9, Mama Hollander will come to town on a book tour, where she will require Danny and Steve’s assistance as her last-minute security team. She, as many do, will take an immediate liking to her son-in-law’s better half — meaning, McGarrett.

Collins tweeted about the guest spot over the long weekend:

Loved doing Hawaii 5-0 with a wonderful cast and crew! @HawaiiFive0CBS#HawaiiFive0pic.twitter.com/eniUbc4f5r

— Joan Collins (@Joancollinsdbe) January 18, 2019

Collins’ more recent TV credits include American Horror Story: Apocalypse and The Royals.

Hawaii Five-0 continues Season 9 on Friday, Feb. 1, with Episode 14.

There’s a heatwave on Oahu, and quite a lot going on. A woman under arrest for assault is being transported in a police car. She’s close to fainting because of the temperature, but when let out of the car for some fresh air she shoots her police escorts with startling efficiency. This surprises everyone, because she’d never been in trouble before; but some rudimentary investigation confirms that she’s been using a false identity, for reasons not unconnected to the bag stuffed with stolen cash money she’s trying to recover.

Tani and Junior respond to a call about a home invasion, which turns out to be half-a-dozen kids seeking refuge from the heat in a swimming pool. Then their car is stolen. Jerry is present when, at a convenience store, a desperate shopper tries to steal the last two bags of ice from a fellow customer. This, it turns out, is to help his pregnant wife. On the subject of thieves, Kamekona puts up prices at his shaved ice stand in order to maximise profits. And Grover, despite the heat, insists on playing a round of golf, to the point where his caddy actually collapses. I’m not sure I found this as funny as the show would have liked me to.

It’s the sort of mini-stories episode that 9-1-1 does so well. TV Tapas, if you will. However, there’s very little inspiration on show here. I quite liked Tani and Junior, in their car, channelling Steve and Danny, but that apart this was an episode to forget.

Hello – hello my little faces and have a lovely Sunday. I hope that you had an awesome week, that you are all well and happy and that you watched a lot of episodes… Let’s see what I watched this week.

Hiatus is almost over. Some of the shows starting coming back and let tell you that I missed them!

Outlander ( 4×10 )
After the messed up with Jamie, bitting up Roger believing that he was the one that raped Brianna, Young Ian sold him to an Indian breed. Lizzie, in order to make her feel better, tells her what Jamie did and finally, they figured out that Roger is still there and Bri “orders” them to go and bring him back. At the same time, she has to choose if she will keep the baby or not. Jamie with Claire and Young Ian leave to go find Roger and Bri with Lizzie go to stay at Jamie’s aunt’s house. Brianna’s decision is to keep the baby but at the same time that Roger manages to escape. On his way back to return to Brianna though, he finds another circle of stones. Will he return back to his time or his love for Brianna is real and strong than anything else? ( Roger honey I don’t like you, at all, but after all of those things that you and Bri went through… if you decide to leave you’re an asshole. That’s all. )

Hawaii five-0 ( 9×12 )
Not to be that girl, but they scared the hell out of me. Grace ( you know, Danny’s daughter ) had a car accident with a friend of her after a party and things were pretty nasty. For a moment they let us believe that we will lose our precious little girl but in the end, everything went well. Apparently, she tried to avoid a creepo who followed them with his car and she lost control so they crush. Steve with Lou found this person and he will regret it for the rest of his life, trust me. In other news… Tani’s brother asked her to help him find a girl that he was trying to help after being cleaned off drugs. Tani worked on this case with Adam ( my beautiful babies ) and they figured out a whole drug organization. ( My favourite power couple… please dear writers, make them lovers, I beg you… )

I also watched: Hawaii five-0 ( 9×10 – 9×12 ), Supernatural ( 14×09 ), This is us ( 3×08 & 3×09 ), Doctor Who ( 11×11 ), Downton Abbey ( 4×08 – 5×03 ), Criminal Minds ( 14×12 ), Chicago FIRE ( 7×04 – 7×10 ), The Gifted ( 2×11 ).

Let me know what you watched this week and don’t forget to tell me what you think about the post in the comments below or on my facebook page. Also, if you like my posts just follow my blog through WordPress or your e-mail account ( you’ll find the following buttons on your right in this post ). Until next time…
