    I actually thought the scene outside the gun shop - when McGarrett and Danno were shooting at the sniper - when the gunshop owner asked if they needed any help, they responded, "No," and he ran back inside was so very funny. I couldn't stop laughing. Way to go, E Street drummer!!!!! lol

    Danno's anti-gun babble aside, it was an awesome episode. Great job from Peter Weller, in both acting and directing.

    I agree, I could have gone without the Anti gun ranting, with how every episode has a shoot out of some kind, it is hypocritical to give the preaching while glorifying gun violence. So what does it accomplish anyway?

    Episode was pretty good and though I never saw the original show, I liked the 'original' text for some reason seeing the title flash before the opening theme made me chuckle. I do gotta say that though the villain was really bad, he had every right to be pissed for losing his hands the way he did. That was brutal in the flashback.

    I watched the original "Hookman" 30 years ago and re-watched it before watching the remake. My verdict, they did a hell of job making the remake and I liked it a lot more. As to the anti gun ranting, it is what is current and the writers opinion and for once I am inclined to agree with them.
