#AlexOLoughlin and Egan at the Boys and Girls Club of Hawaii

Seems like Alex O’Loughlin, thanks to Egan Inoue , is keeping himself busy with a lot of good stuff during the #H50 hiatus. During the week they helped the kids from The Boys and Girls Club of Hawaii with a self-defence workshop, all the while having some fun and raising money for the children in the community of Hawaii.

From the Boys and Girls Club of Hawaii:

DO YOU BELIEVE EVERY CHILD DESERVES A GREAT FUTURE?

After-school is a critical time for our youth, when they need guidance, support and caring adult mentors.  

67% of Boys & Girls Club alumni say that the Club kept them out of trouble with the law. 

Please join us on Great Futures Day to ensure that every child and teen has access to a safe place when school lets out – a place with caring mentors, enriching programs, friendships, and love.

With your help, we can keep the doors open for Hawaii’s keiki and help transform the lives of those who need us most.  

Boys & Girls Club of Hawaii serves more than 14,000 kids each year at 9 clubhouses on Oahu and Kauai.  

The Future of Our Islands is in the Hands of Our Youth!

It was nice to help support the Boys & Girls club of Hawaii #spaldingbgch with their Great Futures Day with Alex McLaughlin of HawaiiFive-0 and Egan Inoue

Of course it is “O’Loughlin” and not “McLaughlin”, but I am afraid no correction as yet. 😦

#AlexOLoughlin – Target Practice at Taran Tactical

Two weeks ago, we posted some footage of Alex doing some target practice at a shooting range on the mainland. You can see it on the link here .

Thank you to  Taran Tactical for posting another and better quality video of Alex shooting. On the footage you can hear that after his round, Alex realizes that it is the same type of gun used by Keanu Reeves in the first John Wick movie.

Some more screencaps of the video:

Another video that we haven’t posted yet, of Alex having some fun with the people at the range.

PS. I think Alex is a better shot than McGarrett 🙂

#H50 9.25 – Steve, to be continued …

Thank you Paula for capturing all these beautiful screencaps of Alex as Steve. For me personally Alex looked kind of serene throughout this episode. Though I am not a big fan of the dyed hair, it looked good as well. With some of the clothes he wore and with a less stressful look, he even looked more like Steve from earlier seasons in some of the scenes.

There are so many reviews and opinions around about the show and I really do not feel like saying much  about it.

Some small things bothered me and left questions with me about the last scene. I know the woman held onto her son with her right hand and she therefor gave Steve her left hand to shake – Steve’s face and my own thoughts about something like and that that might be seen as a sign of rudeness in her culture came to mind. Something Steve as an officer would know very well. Did it mean anything? Is the show this clever?

And then, why take personal revenge and set yourself up to be potentially killed and definitely captured and incarcerated for life and with that leave your son without a parent to raise him – with both in prison? AND on top of it, put your son in danger and in the hands of strangers and enemies? Sounds kind of dumb to me. And all that to settle a score with somebody who killed a father-in-law you never knew? Really show?

My aim with the first post after the finale, was to have some fun with all the drama that was supposedly created with the last minutes of the season finale. Some took it that way, others did not see it that way, I guess.

To me it was no surprise and hardly any cause for panic. Most probably also because it would not bother me in the least if Alex would decide to quit the show. As long as he wants to be there it is great and if he does not want to be there, also great. It is his life and his career after all!

But let us get real about a cliffhanger like this on a TV show.  In most cases it is done to create drama and have fans talk about the show and hopefully have them tune in, in anticipation to see what happens when the new season starts. Is it necessary to do that with a successful show? In my opinion – no.

Okay, so when is it needed? When the writers and producers are not sure if a certain actor will sign contract to return with the next season and they want to give them a good send-off. Was it really needed this time? None of us know, because none of us really know what kind of contracts were signed by the cast.

Another time when something like this is needed, is when a certain actor might need less time on the show and their role will change when the new season starts. We all know how they ended Season 3 in order for Grace Park to get maternity leave for the first half of Season 4

In other words, the writers are dictated to by what contracts the Network sign and with what happens in the personal lives of the actors. They have to write around what is available.

What does it all mean for us as fans and viewers?

If an actor, who is part of the main cast, does not sign a new contract with the Network again, then that character will be written out off the show – whether the producers or writers want it or not. And whether the fans want it or not.

So who might leave?

Any actor who does not want to remain there – most of the time by their own choice or if they can’t agree on the terms of their contract with the Network. In cases where they feel they should earn more. Others might want more screen time, and others less screen time. It is all part of the job negotiations of being an actor. Fans and fellow cast members don’t really influence any of that.

Let’s break it down then according to the plot at the end of Season 9.

  • A woman came to kill Steve and that would make Alex the main target to leave. Will he leave the show? Most probably not. It is a well paying good job, close to home and his family. And unless he already signed some other  life changing project to begin with, there is no reason for him to leave.

But that does not mean he is not looking for less screen time or maybe a new role in the production of the show. He said that he really enjoyed directing and he even gave Peter a script as well. In Season 1 already, he said that he would like to be producer one day. And in so many words he said at the Paley that he is tired of acting.  For all we know, his wish might be less on screen as Steve and more busy with other parts of the production.

  • Then there is Jorge who play Jerry. In my opinion the only reason anything would happen to Jerry, is if Jorge wants to leave the show. Some fans mention other projects that he is involved with. I personally have not seen any of it, but then again, I do not make an intense study of his career.  My personal opinions, is that he won’t be leaving and I don’t see him going anywhere.
  • There is also always the usual debate and  speculations around Scott and if he might be leaving. No indication that Scott will leave or that Danny will be written from the show. At the moment and for many seasons (since Season 4) Scott’s contract allows him the best of both worlds. He is a lead actor in a series, but he is also given nearly half the time off on set, in order for him to be in LA to do other passion projects. What actor would want to give up such a dream job?

 

Sit back and enjoy the ride. This is entertainment – not real life for us!

But every much real life for those who create the entertainment

#AlexOLoughlin goes Brown – #BJJ Brown Belt

Feels like yesterday when we first saw the footage of Alex getting  his Blue Belt in Brazillian Jiu Jitsu in June 2012, and now it is 7 years later and obviously a lot of hard work for him between then and now, to get to his Brown Belt advancement.

He was promoted to Purple Belt 0n 15 August 2015 and his progress in the sport showed how he worked hard at it, through every level of stripes, even while recovering from his back injury in 2017.

Yesterday was another day of JiuJitsu belt testing and belt advancement at Egan’s GrapplingUnlimited in Hawaii.

Congratulations to everybody who participated and graduated to a new level – especially Alex!

Thank you  to all those who posted footage of the event!
