  • Great show

    Great show I just can't watch it on here.
  • A fab preview into season 2

    8.5
    We were left hanging in season one finale over whether what will happen exactly to Steve in particular as well as Kono. I think this was a good opening although maybe a few of the plots were a little rushed to be completed although I'm kinda glad they left Kono as they did.

    The scene between Steve and Danny in the car was great and it gave us a little normalancy as to what else was going on in the show, plus I love that little scene where they finally meet up and Danny has his little rants, Ive missed them.

    I think maybe WoFat will come up more often now and hopefully by the end of this season they will have him but that little bit that Danny found at the end was very interesting to say the least. After all Steve has done for/because of his father to then learn he was working for the very man who has tried to have him killed/framed for murder.

    The ending was a big shock, I soooo did not see that coming. Will be great to watch when they find out. Bring on the next Ep I say.moreless

    This episode begins with Steve in prison and we watch a fight scene between Steve and his fathers killer and it was amazingbeginning the episode with action and suspense when i watched this episode i hoped it would never end because for me it was tv at its best. This episode only got better and better and never in a second was i bored while watching this episode. We also saw one of my favorite Lost characters which is Locke in this episode i hope they bring the rest of the Lost cast even if they appear in an episode because i miss that show and want to see the cast together one last time. From everything I've seen this season CBS is doing so great keep up the good work and please dont cancel this show it is the best drama show on this network and i normally dont like drama on CBS because of all the CSIs and NCIS. Sorry if iheart any fan of these shows. Cannot wait for more Hawaii Five 0.moreless
  • A Terrific Season 2 Opener

    8.0
    I haven't been a regular viewer of the show, in part because I'm of the age that grew up with the original version and have most of the DVDs. To me Jack Lord will always be McGarrett and it's hard to see the lovely Grace Park play a role that was originally played by a fat man!

    I probably saw 8-10 episodes last year and enjoyed them all, especially the season finale, which I thought was awesome. The cast in excellent.

    The season opener did a very nice job to bring closure to several, but not all, storylines which sets a nice foundation for the new season. The twist in the last scene was quite something. I did not see that coming and we'll have to see how it unfolds. There was also some more information revealed about Steve's dad which will also make for interesting viewing in future episodes. Very well done.moreless
  • The second season begins with McGarrett in prison (but not for long) and Five-0 disbanded. All seems lost, until an old friend of McGarrett stops by to lend a hand.

    7.0
    The season started off on a good note, but it could have been better. I did like the episode and it kept me hooked all the way to the end. The story of how McGarrett is eventually exhonerated worked in my opinion. The temporary addition of Terry O'Quinn as McGarrett's superior seems to be a good idea. O'Quinn seemed to fit right in. However there are some problems with the episode though I will admit they are minor. The way the story concerning Danny's ex-wife seemeda little too contrived. Also, I am not too sure about the twist ending. I hope the writers and producers are not trying to turn Hawaii Five-0 into 24 with the sudden plot twists.moreless
