Trivia for the week:

  •  A big thank you to those accounts on IG who deleted  the fake pictures they posted unknowingly. Always good to see that there are still fans who care and want to keep things real. (Remember there are big differences between fanart creations and false/fake pictures being created with photoshop in order to look like real pictures.)Highfive

Not sure how many of you know by now, but Jonathan and his partner Mara Lane welcomed their baby boy (Wolf) into the world on 15 December 2016

 

:love:

Most ‘interesting’ search for the week:

  • what is alex o laughlins haircut called in hawaii five o

Next Week:

  • According to posts on social media they are busy filming the season finale of Hawaii Five-0. Peter indicated earlier that episode 7:24 and 7:25 will be swapped around, and that means that they still have the penultimate episode to film before hiatus. I guess they will start on that somewhere during next week.
  • Wonder if we will get news of renewal before they shoot the last episode, or if we will have to wait until May when the announcements are made during CBS Upfront in New York?

Stan, well-rounded character

Stan is not just “the guy” in Zoe (Lopez)’s story. He’s a juicy part, with his own needs and wants and sacrifices. “He’s a great well-rounded character and it just made perfect sense. I’ve never done anything like this. I’ve played more villains than anything else. I love playing villains because I can just be evil and do whatever I want. They’re like, ‘That’s genius.’ And it’s not really. I’m just being silly. – Alex 2010

#AlexOLoughlin – Only my character is in my hands ….

I am interested in my character. That is what I can work on.

Everything else is out of my control.

I prefer to shine in a mediocre movie than to be un-noticed in a masterpiece.

The Steve McGarrett Story – No # 162 (Epi 7:19)

All in all this has been one of the most engaging episodes for Season 7. My hopes for some good episodes to finish off the season were better served by this one that last week. Of course I loved that Steve and Kono spend so much time together during this episode. They are great together.

The episode was a good display of different women (good & bad) in society. The young and innocent being cute, strong ones looking out for and protecting the weak, the bad ones exploiting the weak. Those fighting for and rescuing the oppressed and the exploited. And the scarred ones fighting back to restore their lives.

Of course me liking the episode and the theme of it, did not mean there were not some serious facepalm moments. Here are a few thoughts ….

  • I don’t understand why the sex trafficker (Emilio) would care to take Moani to the ER. Why take such a risk and then just run away before getting any help? What did he expect to find there? A red carpet reception? The writers idea of using, it did not make sense to me.

Koala Smartass: You are messing with the logic of the story again. Just take it as it is.

  • Not a fan of crossover episodes of two different show. Mainly because I do not live in America and do not see these shows on the same time slots as they are seen over there.

Koala Smartass: No harm done I guess. If you did not see it, you did not miss anything. You watch for Steve (Alex) in any case and he was not part of it.

  • Well at least somebody remembered and brought Steve cookies on his birthday – although he had to buy them.

Koala Smartass: You know the birthdays and stuff only  mean something to the fans – well at least some of the wacky fans like you.

  • Why a split episode when dealing with such serious matters as sex trafficking and drugs? And then rushing through the second case.

Koala Smartass: Lalallalalallalal

*dontknow*

  • It must be really dangerous to just drive around in Hawaii. Road rage is dangerous! Utterly preposterous for Kono to vent against an innocent person in traffic. She was in the wrong and it is she as an officer of the law, who is supposed to serve and protect others rather than damage? That kind of “heroism” being applauded and condoned  is exactly what is wrong with society lately. If you get upset, you can just violate the rights of others – it’s okay and normal? #NO!

Koala Smartass:

  • Kono hitting the teacher before he even had time to say anything? Really? Stooping to a level of brutality is really childish. At least give him a change to be an asshole first.

Koala Smartass: But he deserved it, didn’t he? Men like him are actually the real problem. The laws of supply and demand. If there is no demand, the sex trafficking business would not be so lucrative.

  • Why is Steve shooting the number plate of the SUV while it is backing up? Shoot the tyres, shoot at the window – be productive.

Koala Smartass: How long have you been watching the show? By now you should know, that it is how it is done in the land of Five-o.

:distratto:

  • I fail to get the connection between Kono and Moani, the girl she brought to the sanctuary. Her connection was with the OTHER girl, Kelsey. (She was also a better actress, portraying the pain.) And why was only the one girl taken to the sanctuary? Although very moving, the story kind of lost me there because it did not feel organic with her taking the “wrong” girl in my opinion. And without her parents?

Koala Smartass: I am sure you are the only one complaining about this.

  • And added to that, she easily hugged Kono. NO sign of the broken ribs and injuries Emilio took her to the hospital for.

Koala Smartass: Since when is it strange that injuries sustained during an episode, still exist by the end of the episode? At least it was 3 days later. Normally they heal within a few minutes.

As you can see, there was not much to complain about in the episode, and the Koala is very happy about that. Hopefully that is a good sign for the rest of the season …… I just hope that somewhere along the line we will also at least get some personal story of Steve again. And not just something from his family’s past, but also something for his future and happiness! (Maybe he can chase Adam away, and he and Kono can live happily ever after? )

And that was Steve’s  story for:

#H50 7.19 – Steve the ultimate cookie monster

This was clearly a Kono centric episode, but we were lucky they had her work with Steve 🙂 Even with him being in a bit supportive role, we got plenty of yummy McG to enjoy. This man is such a treat for our eyes (body and soul too)…♥
