1461 Days of #AlexOLoughlin Fun – We Are FOUR

It is hard to believe that it has already been 4 years of the two of us (Paula & FOYeur) blogging about our favourite subject,

Alex O’Loughlin.

Thank you for all the support from some lovely friends and acquaintances over the years. We appreciate every ‘like‘, repost and comment on the things that we do.

At the moment both of us wish we could spend more time here, but real life is keeping us rather busy for now.

But it is still our pleasure to enjoy Alex with so many other fans from around the world.

This is how we celebrated the 1st year: 365 days of fun – we are ONE !

This is how we celebrated the 2nd year: 730 days of fun …… We are TWO!

This is how we celebrated the 3rd year: 1095 Days of #AlexOLoughlin fun – We are Three

#AlexOloughlin as Stan – gif for the day

While there were several appealing factors that played into his taking the role,O’Loughlin said that it was actually a change of pace for him as an actor. “I’ve never done anything like this. I’ve played more villains than anything else and I love playing villains because I can just be evil and do whatever I want and they say ’That’s genius!’ This is the beginning of a new stretch that I’m really interested in for my own career.” – 2010 EdgeMedia Network

6 seasons of #H50 #SteveMcGarrett nips

Erin: So you don’t let yourself go?

Alex: I don’t let myself go.

Erin: [Laughs]

Alex: You can’t go, “So, I’ve got a shirtless scene” and you go [making ‘training’ moves]

Erin: Go, go. No carbs.

Alex: But I do try. To be perfectly honest, when I have like… when I know they are going to take my clothes off, I do kind of try to curb the French toast with syrup you know. – ET uncut 2011

They say ….. #AlexOLoughlin is classically trained, but with a rare working-class thing

“He’s a NIDA boy who’s kind of got the working-class thing, which is a very hard thing to find in young Australian actors.”

but worked with Alex on  BlackJack: Sweet Science before then)

From 2013 – Exclusive Hawaii Five-0 First Look: See Danny’s Hot New Ride!

This is a little fun article written just after the first episode of Season 4 in 2013, mainly to introduce the new car in the show. As usual Alex is full of fun and humour. Not always sure if he is talking about Scott and himself here, or if he is referring to Steve and Danny. I presume he was talking about the two of them in real life, and that Steve actually insists on driving, because he as Alex rather drives because of Scott’s lack of skills driving a car with a stick. If that is true, it is actually kind of funny that the shows’ longest running gag of Steve always driving, stems from Alex and Scott and their real life attitude towards cars and how they drive them.

402 car 4

Not everyone made it out of last week’s Hawaii Five-0 Season 4 premiere alive. Among the casualties was Danny’s (Scott Caan) beloved silver Camaro, which was blown up by Henry Ian Cusick’s terrorist ringleader. But don’t worry, he and McGarrett (Alex O’Loughlin) haven’t had their last cargument — and TVGuide.com has an exclusive first look at Danny’s new wheels.

“We get a better one. We get a faster one,” O’Loughlin recently told TVGuide.com about the show’s latest addition — a black five-speed Camaro. “It’s a bad bitch, man. I’ve gotten it sideways a few times. … It’s pretty amazing.”

But who will be behind the wheel primarily? “I’m not ready to let him drive it because he’s not responsible,” O’Loughlin says. “First of all, he can’t drive stick and it’s a stick. So that should be the end of this f—ing thing. But it’s not. He rides the clutch. He grinds the gears. It’s like, if he would just get a little humble and just ask me, I’ll teach him how to drive it. And when he does, I’ll give him the keys back.”

My thoughts

I think that in too many situations in the show, we as viewers (or at least some of us) take things far too seriously. The show is written by a couple of boys, made by a couple of boys and played by a couple of boys, and should be taken for the fun that it is. Because if we try to see it as something more, or that it should be award winning, or based in any reality, we might just go crazy……

 

They make jokes and have fun, and as with so many instances in life, we as women fans take things far too seriously. And apparently according to some, when I make fun of some of the silly stuff that they try to sell us on the show, I am writing “bitter” reviews. 

Relax, these characters are not real and the story is fiction.

Although I still regard some of the carguments in the later episodes as getting nastier and not fun entertainment to watch anymore (or maybe it never was), and some serious subjects like animal rescue and organ transplantation are dealt with too carelessly and without respect for my, I think we should in general take most of what they do as just some boys playing ‘cowboys and crooks’ and having some boyish and competitive  schoolyard fun and jokes.

Sit back and enjoy their ride …….
