#H50 s10e01 – Steve started dating

And now we are in Season 10 of Hawaii Five-0. And it seems like business as usual. And also not ……

Not yet sure how we will handle the episodes for this season. But for this time I just jotted down a few thoughts that popped in my head while watching it.


The Date:

So this date was organized by Danny for Steve, with one of the teachers at Charlie’s school.

Steve thinking about Jerry getting shot while on a date – surely he can’t  find the other person (Brooke) that boring?

And Steve acting like a 40-year old virgin on a date? But I guess we are going to see a few of those during the season.

But really, who comes up with dialogue like this: “Marriage is a friendship recognised by the police” ? What does than even mean?

Weird that such a highly skilled shooter waits for Five-0 to get to the opera house, before he finds a seemingly easy exit?

If they wanted Steve to chase the bad guy, why did they not just rather have him be on a date at the Opera? Much more believable I would say.

All in all, the flow of the episode was quite good. And I guess they were setting up one or a maybe few plots for the season to follow.


And of course Alex as Steve, looked good even while just standing around …….


The new character (Quinn) seems to fit in nicely to what the show wants from characters. And I like the way that the actress is portraying the role at the moment. A character, sure of herself without being obnoxious.

So Quinn receives and rejects a call from an unknown number (Steve), even when she gave people the number to people to call her. She is after all looking for two missing people. Weird move?

And in the end the whole dramatic cliffhanger from last season was quickly done and dusted and only vaguely became instrumental in having Jerry leave the Five-0 team.

For me personally it is a pity that Jorge decided to leave the show. I liked Jerry.

At the end it looks like yet another character will finally be blown to smithereens – THE CHAMPBOX. It had SO MUCH POTENTIAL , way back in the beginning. But like many of the interesting stories and characters on the show, it never really lived up to what it seemingly offered ……..


And yes, the information which we speculated about earlier is true. Alex is listed as one of the producers on this first episode, as well as the one which he wrote and directed. If he will be listed as such for all episodes, we don’t know yet.



What does it mean to be a Producer on Television?

television producer is a person who oversees one or more aspects of video production on a television program. Some producers take more of an executive role, in that they conceive new programs and pitch them to the television networks, but upon acceptance they focus on business matters, such as budgets and contracts.

There are a variety of different producers on a television show. A traditional producer is one who manages a show’s budget and maintains a schedule, but this is no longer the case in modern television.

Sometimes the star of a successful television series can have a degree of influence over the creative process, then they are called one of the producers..
