Life around #AlexOLoughlin – a week in review (9 – 15 August 2015)

After last weeks drought – we were bombarded with new pictures of Alex during this week – hope you enjoy it all!

Just a reminder – if you see a word that is underlined (especially a user name), it is normally a link to the original source post of anything we report on here. You can just click on that word and it will take you back to the original post on Twitter, Instagram, Facebook or where ever else on the internet it was posted. Make sure to visit them and “like” their posts as well ……

Life on the Set:

Before we continue with the pictures from the set, I just want to thank NinjAloha50@ninjaloha50  for all the hard work of stalking the filming and posting all the pictures from the set again this week. I do not know who you are, but you are a star. And I also want to thank you for adding your signature on these pictures at such a reasonable place. :thankyou:

There is nothing more annoying than a logo right across the bodies of the actors – really, what do you get out of adding your signature across everything and spoiling the whole picture? For that reason, I rarely share or post links to any pictures here, from people who spoil pictures like that.

And a little video of the action:

 Alex & Friends:

  •  Taken at the 19th Annual “Walk in the Country” event for the ‘Boys and Girls Club of Hawaii’ at Lanikuhonua at Ko Olina – another great picture of Alex with a young fan/friend. There will most probably be a lot more pictures popping up from the event. 🙂

Some Trivia for the week:

(It might be here under trivia, but for me the information is definitely not trivial….. Confused smiley 83  )

Question: What is going on with “Hawaii Five-0”? Have watched it from the beginning and it seems as though they are not using Scott Caan very much. In fact some weeks he is not even on the show. They seem to be using the actor from the police force more and more. I would like to see them go back to the original four characters. – LU, MARS

Rob: I actually received and ran this question earlier this year but the non-response was unsatisfactory. So when I spotted Caan at a CBS party earlier this week, I was able to get a response straight from him. “I do five episodes less than [series star] Alex [O’Loughlin],” said Caan, who lives in Los Angeles while the show shoots in Hawaii. “I just do a couple of episodes less so I can come home to see my family and stuff. They were cool about it so we just all came to that.”

cbs-the-cw-and-showtime_4865150

 Thank You Rob for asking and a big Thank You Scott for answering it clearly. (And it was good to see that Scott took the time to represent the Hawaii Five-0 cast and show at TCA)

I myself would have preferred a Danny that could be available full-time, because Steve and Danny has been the centre of the show from the start. But I hope fans will stop complaining now when Scott (Danny) is not in episodes and other actors take his place. It  is HIS choice to do less time on the show. If you are a fan of him, respect that. He has been doing it for 2 seasons already (since the beginning of Season 4, long before Kacy even got pregnant).  I think it is high time for the complaining fans to get used to it by now.

My Pet Peeves:

  • My Pet Peeve this week ties in with the trivia I mentioned above. Why can’t people be satisfied with pictures that are posted from the set. Whenever anybody posts a picture of the cast,  most of the comments always ask where those actors are who are not on the picture. If they are not in Hawaii and not part of an episode and not in the picture, and nobody answers them – why keep asking? Rather be grateful for those in the pictures and for the privilege of getting those great picture that are posted.

:nowhy:

As an example – this great picture posted by Daniel Dae Kim on Instagram, where many of the comments repeatedly ask where some actors are:

danieldaekim One of the best things about this job is that once in a while you get to work with a #legend. Last night it was @49ers star #JerryRice. As a huge fan of #BillWalsh and all the #Niners of that era, it was a special thrill. Mahalo, Jerry! #H50 #ClassAct

Thank you Daniel for posting this great picture – you look like a happy bunch 🙂

Most ‘interesting’ search for the week:

  • does alex o loughlin have a pilot license

I realised something when I looked up to which post the search must have taken them. We posted a Whiteout Premiere video where Alex jokes about him buying a plane and flying there – and we never told the readers specifically that he was of course joking – oops. Although the name of the post should be a hint, I think: ‘Sarcastic’ Alex – Whiteout Premiere, September 2009

Thought (Tweet) for the week:

 

There comes a point where you just love someone, not because they’re good or bad. You just love them the way they are.

Next Week:

  • It looks like they are no longer taking 8 working days to shoot episodes (maybe because they are shooting over weekends as well). They are 4 days ahead of how I calculated the schedule (working on 8 days per episode). According to the director they wrapped 604 on Friday. So it looks like they will start shooting Episode 605 on Monday.

Season 1 Alex

Once again a BIG Mahalo to everybody who contributed by posting all their pictures and stories on social media for us all to enjoy!

  1. These posts are my new fave posts. Are you going to continue them throughout the season?

  2. Thank you so much for all the info. Especially for the info on SC. I also hope that will finally shut up all his ‘fans’ complaining so loudly that he’s not in every episode.
    Well, I guess it’s easy for me to say since I’m not a fan of Danny or SC. But honestly, if Alex decided to do less episodes and that would make him happy, I wouldn’t complain if that were his wishes. I would be sad not to see him, but I would be happy for him and not constantly complain. So, I wonder why many of his fans feels so very differently. Anyway, happy for SC that it works out great for him. Now the show needs to come up with some better reasons for Danny’s absence than they have before. 😉

    • Thanks – it was quite a task this week to get it all in here, with all the pictures available (and surely I have missed out on some of it 😀 )

      Oh, I can understand why people are complaining, I would most probably also show my disappointment and feel betrayed if Alex was not in every episode without explanation. I watch the show for him and barely watched the episodes where he was not in. I watch a show like this (especially H5-0), mostly for the main characters (actors) and not the procedural stuff.

      It is just the constant complaining that they are not writing enough stories for Danny, and that others are taking his place (especially at Steve’s side) etc. People are blaming everybody else, but not the real reason for Danny’s absence – it was Scott’s choice to cut back on his hours at work.

      And the complaining is not going to change Scott’s mind or result with him in more episodes and scenes. Also not the threats that they will stop watching if he is not there ….
      I mentioned in a post about 2 years ago that honesty about seeing less of Scott/Danny, would be great – and at long last we got a proper answer. 🙂

    • Scotty’s true fans were already well aware of why he takes time out and that made us love him all the more.:) Only the ‘fringe’ crowd of Scott fans and some Alex fans complained. Of course he wants to be with his little girl and the woman he loves. It must be really hard for him to be away from them so much. i would imagine Grace Feels the same being away from her baby. Being a Scott fan, yes of course I miss him on the show but I rally in the knowledge that he is being the best father and partner he can be and is a great man, one to admire. I guess the ones that complain are the loudest so it looks like there is more of them, but truly they are the minority and 98% of his fans admire and respect his decision 🙂

    Thank you so much for this collection. I especially like Alex’s outfit in the ‘Walk in the Country’ photo. Alex looks ‘cool’ and cool. Lucky young fan, too.

  5. Now this was a great week for us Alex fans! Being funny, being goofy, charity, commitment and athletics – the whole Alex package! Sums up a lot of the reasons why I am a fan.
    Btw, I think that the Charlie storyline will serve as an excuse for SC not being there. Well, I love Chi McBride as a perfect addition, I enjoy his scenes with Alex incredibly and I hope to see lots of McGrover or McChin! McGrin!

  6. Foyeur, you have no idea how useful these posts are to me. This summer RL is being very busy, so your work is priceless because i can update myself about everything Alex’s related here. Thank you very much!

  7. On another note: has anybody else had these probs with the birthday card? After a zillion tries I’m finally listed, but my text – like some others – can only be seen if you hover over the blank (!) pages… Weird.. Hope the problem can be solved, because I think a lot of fans gave up trying.

    • Thanks. I just had a look and see what you mean. I see there are a few that tried twice – and maybe others gave up as you say.
      I will try to let Claire know about it. It looks like a weird glitch.
