#H50 Episode 8:17 – and some gorgeous Steve faces …..

Before we start, I just want to mention that we did not forget Steve McGarrett’s birthday this year. We were just a bit busy this weekend and on top of that I have ongoing internet connection problems as well 😦 .

But over the years we have made a number of posts to celebrate our fictional hero’s birthday and you should be able to read them if you go to any 10 March posts over the years that we have been here (in fact all the links are in  last year’s birthday post: Happy Birthday Steve McGarrett )

And of course today (12 March), is Spike’s 9th birthday.

And now for some random thoughts about the episode ….. and some of Steve’s faces, explaining it all. 😆

  • I think we all got the whole  ‘immunity and means’ thing since the first episode, but Adam and Jessie doing break-ins without Steve’s knowledge, just goes that bit beyond immunity and means. I guess that is what you get for giving somebody (Adam) a task that he was never trained for.
  • Can somebody explain why Danny needs to be written as an asshole about EVERYTHING – especially somebody who supposedly “live” for his kids and their safety, mocking a safety drill? I always got the feeling as a child, that those with that kind of attitude were the kids/people with a big chip on their shoulder – so much so that they had to try to be “cool” by showing defiance, while everybody else respected the rules. Is that who Danny is supposed to be?

  • Papers in Hawaii are pretty quick to report news ……
  • How plausible is it that “normal” very distraught men would react by locking their friend in with the chlorine gas?
  • Why is it that the writers kindly forget about the Governor’s existence, until and only when they need Steve to be somewhere for a period of time – when Alex is doing others stuff. How is it that only then do they remember that there is someone like that, that they all work for? They are the Governor’s task force after all ….

  • I think Tani was rather rude to the girl in the library – One of my pet peeves is people who do not respect time and place. Why talk in a library if you can go outside and do the same there. I can’t stand rudeness like that. No respect for the courtesies of the civilized world. And even worse is when police officers disregard rules – what type of example is that to the general population and youth. AND even worse, is seeing people / fans applauding that as being badass! Or is it worse that female writers actually wrote that or that a female director kept it in? Or maybe it is just me getting old and cranky about the show trying to be funny ……..

  • Not 100% sure what to make of Adam’s catharsis at the end of the episode. Is he mad at himself for failing at a job that he was never trained for? Or is he mad at Steve for getting him involved, or disappointed that he is “failing” Steve somehow? Is he feeling sorry for himself? Or is he just pissed off at Jessie for ‘getting’ some on the side, while he is pining for his ‘lost’ wife Kono?
