The Steve McGarrett Story – No # 139

We continue our story from here.

621 (24)

Well that was another episode with lots of entertainment, drama and suspense. One of those that can make you forget a multitude of sins, and there were quite a number of those to go around as usual. But in the end there was nothing really special or mind blowing about it. It was just another episode …. it leaves me with not much to say.

621 (44)

My disappointments of the episode:

  • Nahele’s story with his father ‘resolved’ by the father’s death without any exploration into it. It feels like a missed opportunity.

Koala Smartass: But after 6 years you should know that it is the way it is done. The procedural always comes before the exploration of a good story.

  • Once again being in pursuit of armed and dangerous criminals in the woods, but chatting away like you are on a stroll. Please, Steve is a highly trained Navy SEAL. Stop letting him act like he does not know anything about tracking somebody.

Koala Smartass: But that is the way it has been done since the start. You’ve got to have a discussion (cargument) at the worst possible time. That is the signature of the show so to speak.

  • Once again Adam and Kono crying and kissing – when will this ever stop? Please just do something more interesting with these two characters.

Koala Smartass: Like what? You are just pissed off because you are a McKono shipper.

Things I liked:

  • The use of recurring characters (criminals) in one episode. We felt more connected to them.
  • I don’t know if it was just the director doing a better job, or the casting being done more sensibly than last week, but the guest cast were really good this time around. I kind of did not mind that they took so much time in the show away from Steve.
  • Thank you for continuing the Nahele story. at least it gives Steve a story aside from work. Some great potential there. Hope to see it go somewhere……
