Can we please end the restaurant storyline?

And can we please end Danny … being a jerk?

„…You Putz!“

Steve stared at his friend who kept on talking but he could no longer hear him. Everything around him – the voices, Danny, Pua – disappeared in a blur.

Putz.

His friend had been calling him names for years now. Had insulted him, offended him, questioned every move he had made, every decision he had to take in order to save and protect his team, his friends, the people on this island. Moron, idiot, neanderthal. Well, and putz. He didn’t know exactly when it had happened but one day it had started to hurt. He could no longer brush it aside with a ‘That’s how Danny is’ excuse. Because he, Steve, needed at least some respect once in a while. He told Danny so after Steve had rescued the girls out of the truck some months ago, he told him in a light tone, with a little smile because he was too tired to risk a full blown fight with Danny. But obviously it didn’t help.

Steve had no idea why Danny behaved this way. On one day he arranged this stupid intervention, hired a stupid stress counselor to make his life less stressful only to be a pain in the neck the other minute. Causing Steve more stress than he was already dealing with.

Maybe it was the job. Steve had come more and more to the conclusion that being a detective was not what Danny needed to be. He had shown no commitment for a long time now, even years if he thought about it. Danny was just – there. IF he was even there. No one on his team had had as many days off as Danny. And when they were working a case together he didn’t do much. No input, no solutions, no help, no engagement. Just insults and fear. Yep. Fear. He had seen it. Fear Danny could not overcome. And in their line of work you had to overcome your fear to save the innocents. To save yourself and your colleagues. That was their job.

Steve took a step back and looked around. Took a close look at their construction site he had been working at for months now. This was where he had spend his evenings. Every evening till late at night. Because he was the one with the manual skills and they wanted to save some money.

He imagined how it would look like when the restaurant was up and running, with its red leather booths Danny liked so much, bottles of brom water in the kitchen and rust-mineralized water coming out of the taps. He sighed. What would be his job? Running around with a wine bottle in his arms, smiling at patrons and looking at lovers celebrating their anniversary?

And would he do anything right in Danny’s opinion?

He shook his head and went to his backpack lying behind a pillar at one end of the room. Steve didn’t hear the words churned out by Danny, he didn’t hear Pua asking if he was okay. He bent down and took a folder out of his backpack. For a second he looked at it with a thoughtful face then he got up vigorously and determinedly. Shouldering his pack he went to Danny.

This was it. This whole thing, that was Danny’s. Not his. This was not how he envisioned his future. He once said, the day his mother died made him who he is. Now he knew that Doris didn’t die, but the rest was still the truth.

He loved his work. He loved what he did.

He made a difference.

He didn’t know what the future would bring.

He knew that there would be consequences, he wasn’t stupid. Liver transplant AND radiation poisoning was no piece of cake and one day he would have to deal with that, the doctors told him such.

The chemical weapon he was exposed to didn’t help either. But he fought. He didn’t give up. He always was a fighter. When it was time to sink or swim? He swam. On that boat, hurting, freezing, being dizzy he battled his way through it for all the long hours, searching for a solution, organizing help and getting the damn job done to save his team. First and foremost his team, this new team with Tani and Junior. They were great, he made a good choice. Tani would need a little bit, sometimes she was a little bit too cocky and boastful, but time would show her, and Junior was amazing. A quick thinker, supportive and respectful. And then Grover. Lou was amazing, smart, empathic and a great friend.

And Steve would never complain because that was exactly what he wanted to do. Not only was he highly trained for this kind of stuff, he did it because there was no one else.

And at the end of the day he knew he made a difference that day. He made a damn difference.

He put the folder on the table behind Danny who had stopped talking and looked at him questioningly.

Steve opened the folder: “Some weeks ago you forgot to pay the landlord, remember? Well, as you know I did. Here are the papers. And the signed lease. It’s for you. You can have it.”

“What?” spat Danny. “Have you lost your mind?”

Steve breathed in and out. “No. I found it. That’s your dream…” Steve raised his arms and pointed around. “This. This whole restaurant, that’s your dream. Not mine, Danny. Not mine.”

He closed the folder. “Don’t worry. I am still in with my money. But as a silent investor.”

Steve turned around, headed for the door. “I know you don’t understand and you never will, but I love my job. I love 5-0. My whole life I’ve been motivated by helping others, by saving others, by – maybe – making the world a little bit better. I think, I’ll stick to that. As long as my health allows me to be this guy? Well – I’ll stay this guy.” He paused. “It makes me happy.”

Steve looked at Pua. “Thanks for coming, Officer. Sorry for – well – for the circumstances. I’ll send you the list of my tools and instruments later the day.” He nodded in his direction and left the building.

Outside the sun was shining brightly. Steve reached into his backpack and put on his sunglasses.

He would change and then he would head back to HQ.

His team with probably a new case was waiting.

Steve smiled.

He never knew what the day would bring.

He didn’t know what his future would bring.

Or when.

But until then… He would live the life he loved.


Steve, Junior, Lou, Tani and Eddie would be a perfect team.

With Jerry doing some magic at the omniscient table.

Nothing more needed.

I’ve lost all hope that Danny ever becomes an interesting, lovable, well written and portrayed character.

He could open this pizza joint and just appear once in a while.

Maybe he would be polite, friendly, with a sense of decency and manners then.

We have not done a poll for a long time and I got this titbit from a post on Moonlight Fan Blog. I thought we could use it as a starting point for a poll. Unfortunately I could not locate the original EW post about it anymore, but here is what I found on the blog.

On the PopWatch Blog, Michael Slezak asked Entertainment Weekly’s readers to nominate the best and worst TV hair. Of course…. Mick was not only nominated, he was selected as a winner.

It seems as if Alex was not only seen as one of the sexiest stars on TV in those Moonlight days, but that his hair was well liked as well. This made me think that we should ask how the fans feel about his hair in the various roles over the past 15 years. (not all the roles are included)

Here is our first poll. Take a look at Alex’s hair over the years before Hawaii Five-0. The hair from which role do you like best? (Remember, it is about the HAIR 😉 😉 )

(1) ‘White Collar’ Blue hair (Alex in 2003 as Ian Mack in an episode of this TV series)

(2) ‘Oyster Farmer’ Hair (Alex as Jack Flange in this movie filmed in 2003)

(3) ‘Black Jack Sweet Science’ Hair (Alex as Luke Anderson in this 2004 TV Drama)

(4) ‘Mary Bryant’ Hair (Alex plays Will Bryant in this TV Drama that was filmed during the last 3 months of 2004)

(5) ‘Feed’ Hair (Alex as Michael Carter in this movie filmed in the beginning of 2005)

(6) ‘The Invisible’ Hair (Alex as Marcus Bohem in this movie, filmed at the end of 2005)

(7) ‘August Rush’ Hair (Alex as Marshall Connelly in this movie, filmed in 2006)

(8) ‘The Shield’ Hair (Alex as Kevin Hiatt in this TV series filmed in 2006)

(9) ‘Whiteout’ Hair (Alex as Russell Haden in this movie filmed in 2007)

(10) ‘Moonlight’ Hair (Alex as Mick St John in the TV series filmed from August 2007 – April 2008)

(11) ‘Criminal Minds’ Hair (Alex as Vincent Rowlings in an episode of this TV Series)

(12) ‘The Back-Up Plan’ Hair (Alex as Stan in this movie, filmed in 2009)

(7) ‘Three Rivers’ Hair (Alex as Andy Yablonski in this TV series, filmed in 2009)

You can vote for the 3 hairstyles that you like best

  • And here is our second poll. Take a look at Steve McGarrett’s hair over the years. The hair from which season do you like best? (and again just a reminder that it is about the hair 🙂 )

‘Hawaii Five-0’ Hair

Season 1 Hair

Season 2 Hair

Season 3 Hair

Season 4 Hair

Season 5 Hair

Season 6 Hair

Season 7 Hair

Season 8 Hair

Hope you enjoyed all the ‘hair’ pictures …….. 😛

We’ve got questions, and you’ve (maybe) got answers! With another week of TV gone by, we’re lobbing queries left and right about shows including Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Hawaii Five-0, Arrowand The Good Place!

1 |Why did Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.‘s Faulnak say that his brother had tainted “the Kasius family name?” Is Kasius’ last name also Kasius?? Because that’d be a bit silly, in the vein of General Hospital’s Jasper “Jax” Jacks.

2 | Considering that Hawaii Five-0‘s Danny barely played a role in the big Grover/suicide storyline, was that really a prudent use of “a Scott Caan episode“?

3 | The Last Man on Earth‘s Carl is totally going to find and eat Jasper, isn’t he?

4 |What has been your favorite Star Trek: Discovery/TOS “Mirror, Mirror” callback? The evil doppelgangers’ sword-through-globe insignia? Their salute? The Agony Booth? The thigh holsters for daggers? Goateed Spock(‘s father)?

Supergirl5 | When scrambling to exploit Reign’s (assumed) weakness, couldn’t Supergirl‘s friends have borrowed one of Oliver Queen’s kryptonite arrows? Who tended to Kara’s makeup while she was in the water tank that she emerged with perfect eyeshadow? Did Mon-El’s love for Bon Jovi come completely out of nowhere? (We saw his entire experience on Earth, so when exactly did he have time to become the rocker’s No. 1 fan?) What happened to Alex’s seemingly imminent alcoholism storyline (that even merited comment during the crossover episodes)? Oh, and if you insist on using punctuation on a newspaper’s front page (above), wouldn’t this sort of news call for an exclamation point?

The Good Doctor6 | Can The Good Doctor just… not?

7 | Did The Flash really not bother to come up with any kind of explanation for how Barry was able to stop time while he and Iris talked?

8 | Black Lightning previously fought crime for how many years, yet Jefferson and Gambi never came up with a breezy nickname for him during their conversations? No “B.L.” or “B-Light”? Always the formal, multi-syllable “Black Lightning”?

9 | Have This Is Us‘ Jack and Rebecca Pearson never heard of writing down a shopping list before heading out to the store? (Or are we being a bit overheated, based on the item they forgot and how it’ll likely affect the family’s future?) And after Kate went wedding-gown shopping with frenemy Madison, we’re wondering: Why don’t the Pearson siblings seem to have any friends?

10 | Was there any question, any question at all, that Kevin (Probably) Saves the World‘s “Acorn Fairy” would turn out to be a felon on the lam?

9-1-111 | In what universe would 9-1-1‘s Chimney have survived this accident?

12 | Over on Riverdale, is it standard FBI protocol to recruit a high school student to assist in a federal investigation — without parental approval? (And if it is, well hell, isn’t that a new CW series unto itself?)

13 | X-Files diehards, did you pick up on the old episode names written into the hangman games hanging on Judy’s wall?

14 | Why would The Blacklist‘s Liz stuff that bloody rag into the garbage disposal at Navarro’s place — where the police would surely find it — instead of just putting it in her pocket or holding it when she ran into the closet?

15 |How crazy is it that of all the human deaths on Syfy’s brutal, bloody Happy!, it was a one-eyed, talking pancake’s murder that hit us the hardest?

16 | What was the best part of Modern Family‘s send-up of Gwyneth Paltrow’s Goop? The products (sparkly energy stickers that improve colon health if you stick them up there), or Mira Sorvino’s very unique pronunciations (“Disneylawnd”)?

The Good Place

17 | The Good Place fans, did you catch The Bad Place’s ad for Pirates of the Caribbean 6: The Haunted Crow’s Nest or Something, Who Gives a Crap, which is “Now Playing Everywhere… Forever?”

18 | On Will & Grace, shouldn’t Vince’s new husband have been furious at Will for making their wedding day all about him? And would we be slut-shaming Jack if we asked, isn’t he a little mature to be hooking up with the frequency (and stamina!) of a twentysomething?

19 |Grey’s Anatomy‘s Jenny (played by Bethany Joy Lenz) is responsible for fiancé Paul’s you-know-what, right? Like, if it’s not her, it… well, it absolutely is her, don’t you think? Or was it… Jenny, because it totally was Jenny? New topic: What was with Jackson and Maggie’s towel scene? An attempt to get us used to the idea of them getting naked together? (Did it work?)

Arrow20 | Are any Arrow viewers sympathetic to Curtis, Rene and Dinah’s point of view? (We’re genuinely curious!)

21 | On Nashville, why was nearly everyone at the Movement for Coherent Philosophy wearing neutral colors?

Conan22 | Should Project Runway All Stars have eliminated Merline and Candice over Melissa and Ari?

23 | Could Conan‘s new set look any cheaper? Why so dark and dreary?

24 | Has reality-TV ever gifted us with a more obnoxious panel of judges than Fox’s The Four?

Now that he has been tasked with heading up the organized crime task force within the task force, Hawaii Five-0‘s Adam needs some help. And where should an ex-con scout out talent, but a prison?

In the exclusive sneak peek above from tonight’s episode (CBS, 9/8c), a young woman named Jessie Nomura — played by new recurring cast member Christine Ko, formerly of CBS’ The Great Indoors — has barely set one foot outside of the prison gates when Adam pulls up to offer her a ride. If only because Adam is being a bit too cagey, especially for a stranger approaching a woman outside the hoosegow, Jessie has zero interest in buying what he’s selling. Can Adam convince her to give him a listen? Press play above to watch his recruitment attempt.

Elsewhere in the episode: When the corpse of a diamond smuggler is stolen from a graveyard, Five-0 tracks down his partner, played by guest star/American Idol winner Phillip Phillips, who will stop at nothing to retrieve their latest batch of contraband. Also, Tani gets a devastating call, while McGarrett tasks Pua to find his and Danny’s stolen tools.
