(new) Hawaii Five-0 on CBS

the new Hawaii Five-0 on CBS


OK, guys, let’s have a discussion about how accurate a TV show has to be. Let’s not just talk about Five-0, I only use it as a stand-in. Talk about any show you like.

What started this discussion was the wrong naming of two buildings frequently used on the show. Five-0 Headquarters is not located at the Palace, as they have more than once said. But on the other hand no police force, special or not, is located in the building they use as HQ. And even worse 😉 there is no such thing as a Governor’s Task Force. So, does have the show an obligation to use the right names for their fictional HQ? And if they don’t do that, does it bother you?

Well, there are many things that bother me on various shows. But the name for a building is not one of them. Yes, these are historical sites, but isn’t this a ‘problem’ in general? They rename buildings all the time. They sell us police headquarters which are located in any kind of buildings. Museums, or whatever fits the look of ‘their’ building.

Five-0 renamed Queens Medical into King’s Medical. But nobody complained about that. Or that they use a wrong aerial view of the hospital. But that is exactly what I tried to say above, that is creative license because it fits their view of things. Nothing wrong with that, in my opinion.

Where I draw the line is law of physics, law of nature, or actual events. Like the attack on Pearl Harbor. Or landmarks like Diamond Head. All things most people know by heart. But honestly, who knows how the Palace looks like if you haven’t been to Hawaii, or saw a good documentary about it? Who knows if there is a parking garage under it? OK, that one made me laugh out loud.

You for sure can’t get your education from a TV show.

And what really bothers me, are medical facts. You just can’t change those. But they frequently do so anyway. 😉

So, what is it that drives YOU up the wall?

And please remember, every opinion is welcomed here. There is no right or wrong. So, feel free to share your view of things.

9.15 – Ho‘opio ‘ia e ka noho ali‘i a ka ua

As a dangerous hurricane hits Oahu, Five-0 is tasked with protecting El Diablo (Raoul Trujillo), a captured serial killer who is being hunted by an assassin. Also, Tani’s civilian safety check during the storm turns deadly and Rachel and Charlie evacuate to Danny’s house, where the ex-spouses reminisce, on HAWAII FIVE-0, Friday, Feb. 15 (9:00-10:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network.

CBS translated Ho‘opio ‘ia e ka noho ali‘i a ka ua to Made prisoner by the reign of the rain

Well, I don’t really have that much to say about this episode. In my eyes, another mediocre episode. The only saving grace, as so often lately, was Steve. Since I have very little to say about it I asked Cokie to help out. 😉

Sorry, guys, no pictures. But I am sure LeiCa will make up for that.

I don’t have a lot to say about this last episode either, but I do want to comment … mostly on things that bug me, so be warned.

There is a bad storm coming and people are evacuating. Rachel and Charlie are in the evacuation zone so it only makes sense they would go to Danny’s. I would do the same in the circumstances. But Rachel tells Danny that his daughter is safe in California and is enjoying herself, and the first words out of his mouth is about money. Poor him, footing the bill for his daughter’s school trip. Is there anything to make him happy? Well, other than waking up on the couch with his ex?

You really think it made sense for her to show up like that? And why on earth is Danny even home while every other police officer his helping to make it safe for everyone. Oh, don’t even get me started on that.

When we transition to HQ, I liked seeing that Junior was already in Steve’s office. Silly, I know, but I feel like Steve was bouncing ideas off him. He trusts Junior’s opinion and I like that.

Yes, Steve and Junior have a lot in common.

Love watching Steve waiting for the FBI to show up. He was ready for anything. I liked him telling the story of his friend and family. Even though this was an FBI operation, it suddenly was personal.

Tell me, how many people has poor Steve lost by now? Just wondering, you know.

Now back to the leaky ceiling with its box of utterly idiotic deodorant. I swear, I know I have come up with slim plot lines before, but this one is for the books. He has old deodorant in the attic that he brought from New Jersey 9 years ago??? That he has moved with him HOW many times in these last years? And she actually swooned when she smelled it like a 16-year-old with a crush. Gag me.

I like Rachel. I really do. She did some nasty things, too, but I still like her. But this whole scenario at Danny’s place was just nauseating. Sorry, but the worst so far. Oh wait, I think the worst was way back at that cheap motel when Danny slept with his ex-wife who was still married to another man. I believe she still is? Isn’t she?

I truly hope these two will get back together and then live happily ever after as far away from Hawaii as possible.

Here is an aside. Did you recognize the lead FBI agent as the neighbor, Jefferson, on Married With Children? I did not but my daughter knew him. All those guys had on body armor, yet it appeared they all were killed. But I didn’t see any blood. And I don’t want to go back and watch it again.

They all dropped like flies. 😉

Until we get to the fight scene. That was great. Steve was really in rare form. He surely had to have bruises on his back and his leg. That had to hurt! 🙂 OK, I do know this wasn’t real… 🙂

Awesome fight.

But the fight scene was THE scene in the entire show. The rest was a bit ho hum for me.

As I said, the only good thing about this episode. Steve large and in charge. Honestly, the only thing lately that keeps me watching. Don’t get me wrong, still love watching Steve… but the rest is just so… boring, stupid and a waste of time.

OH, I forgot about the poor sheriff’s deputy bleeding out in the basement. The one who we heard nothing else about after going in shock with Jerry and Web MD. Why was that even in there? To give Jerry and Grover something to do?

Awful. The whole thing.

A word about Tani. What a useless and meaningless storyline with her planning to arrest the family and then getting herself tied up. Utter waste of screen time.

I said that I am still not sure what to thing about Tani, but it comes clearer and clearer, I can’t stand that woman.

I give the show a C- and Steve and his fight an A+.

Same here. I really hope for some better episodes, some that deserve a real review.

Oh, let me just say one more thing. I know there was a small debate about the accuracy of HQ and the Palace, and a magic parking structure that suddenly appeared under HQ. Guys, this is a fictional Task Force. It doesn’t matter if they have a garage under HQ. Because it is not HQ of Five-0. There is no such thing. And I honestly don’t care if they call it Palace or Hale, or whatever. It’s not really there. It’s called creative license. We do it all the time. Everyone writing does that. And that is how it should be. You create what you need. This is not a documentary about historical sites. There are so many things you could wonder about on any given show, but really, why bother? Haven’t you learned that yet? 😉

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.


Arrow ( 7×13 )
So much stuff happened on this episode. First of all, let’s talk about the elephant in the room… We finally found out Blackstar’s name and of course is Mia Smoak ( don’t know why not Queen, but I bet will do find out on the next episodes ). The Star City Slayer ( as the episode’s name was ) wasn’t other than Oliver’s friend in prison who apparently is a psycho and truly believed that every person in Oliver’s life, except than Felicity and William, deserved to die… ( go figure… #cracy ). He cut Dinah’s throat and this is the point that I think that she lost her scream ( my poor Canary ). Curtis left the town to go in DC and William after Stanley Dover tried to make them “listen” to him, decided to go live with his grandparents for a while in Central City ( please come back, my favorite kid ) the same time that the doctor called Felicity with some news. ( No lies, I screamed at the “I’m what?” ) In other news, future Felicity is alive ( duhhh ) and the future Team Arrow, aka Mia – Connor – Zoe – William, are adorable and beautiful and we have to protect them by any costs. ( Note to someone that doesn’t remember… Connor is actually JJ, Diggle and Lyla’s son. )

I also watched: MacGyver ( 3×05 – 3×09 ), The walking dead ( 9×09 ), Legacies ( 1×10 ), Downton Abbey ( 6×03 & 6×04 ), Hawaii five-0 ( 9×15 ), Chicago FIRE ( 7×14 ), Chicago PD ( 6×14 ), The Flash ( 5×14 ).

It was a busy week so I didn’t watch as many episodes as I use to… but it’s ok.!

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…

xx Marilita.
