Over the years we have heard so many times in interviews that Hawaii Five-0 is a different kind of cop show because of its back stories and story arcs for the characters, that makes it so much better to watch. How real are they? Is this true?
In the past I have done a few posts in which I ask what happened to specific stories and arcs that were supposedly going to be explained or addressed or ended etc. Also kept asking why it takes such a long time to address some of these stories again – by which time viewers have lost interest in the story already?
Last week we discussed some of it on another site and we thought it might be a good idea to see what others would have liked to see answered or wondered about in the show. At first I thought to write all my old questions about dropped stories again, but I decided to just leave it blank and see if some of you have things you feel the show could have done or elaborated on.
If there are some interesting stuff mentioned, I can make a summary of it all in a post later on. Maybe we can even get the Koala Smartass to respond to some of it. What do you think?
How do you feel? Are there a specific story that you feel they just dropped without explanation? What about characters? Anything that disappointed you about the show over the years?
I added a few pictures and will mention some questions of my own just to get the ball rolling and remind you of some examples of what you might want to ask
- What is keeping Steve’s good friend Ellie so busy that we never see or hear from her? ( PS – I had to tie the Koala Smartass down, because it just wanted to jump in here to answer. It is so obvious it said)
- What happened to Uncle Leonard’s box that he left with Steve when he and Aunt Deb got married?
- Why was (or still is) WoFat’s father so important/dangerous that he needed to be assassinated back then, when Doris failed to do it 40 years ago? And then kept prisoner for all those years after?
- What happened to the
Zombie Jack Lord characterretired cop that Steve met in the chapel in 7:01? Why is he not seen at the Ohana gatherings or card games since then? He looked so much like Ohana to me. 😀
As you can see there are some (well most or maybe all) tongue in the cheek ones there – remember this is all fictional and will not affect world peace at all. Well, hopefully not.
Let’s try to have some fun with this one …….
(And don’t be scared, nobody here will think you are complaining too much or spreading hate towards the show – well that is unless you actually do hate a
n actorcharacter that much, that you keep harassingtweeting and shoutingcommenting to others and the producers on social media about how bad she isthey are, even before shethey appear on screen once in a while. 😀 )
