The helo grab was pretty bad. And why drop the truck in the water instead of just putting it on the huge ship?

is Alex getting his tats removed, they look faded tonight. Never understand why actors would do that to themselves when various roles might require them to covered- makeup can only cover so much.

Very good episode tonight. I tune in each week to watch an entertaining cheese-fest, but this episode was well made and had actual emotional substance.

This week's Victoria Secret was a blatent plug for tonite's Victoria Secret show. When the networks start putting in guest stars its all over.

Thing was it ran an A, B and a C plot, which is very unusual for the show. made for a different show and had a nice A plot twist at the end. B plot was the plug and C plot was a side story to the A plot.

Best show of the season, IMHO. McGarrett had difficulty running two bad guys down. Not often for that.

Has everyone here stopped watching this? I watched the season premiere Friday night, and wow. The stupidity was strong with everyone involved. That was just horrible.

I've enjoyed this series, more for the 'beauty shots' of Hawaii than the plots. But now, since they replaced Michelle Borth with Jorge Garcia (as the conspiracy theorist who seems to always find the truth behind some of them), they may have done some shark jumping.

Well, in the eye candy department, there is the new intern in the medical examiner's office.

I LOVE this series. This is not a drama. It's a comedy.

Not for the intricate plots.

Not for the police procedural work.

Not for the outstanding performances of the actors. (Although, Chi and Daniel are two of my favorite TV actors.)

I watch this series for laughs, and the fantastic photography of some of the most gorgeous landscapes and people in the US.

And, perhaps, the GREATEST theme song ever.

For those of you who think the plots are silly, you're not alone. Gregg Easterbrook, in his TMQ (Tuesday Morning Quarterback) column at espn.com, opines on the show's nutty illogical stuff.

The H 5-0 stuff is about halfway down the article.

As posted in the Scorpion thread in reply to mike, yes this show is high on the dumb scale especially after this ridiculous plot. But it will always be on our Tivo as a guilty pleasure simply for the eye-candy, because we enjoy vacationing there, and because we like how they run the main characters. We stayed at the Sheraton Waikiki (great hotel btw) so really enjoyed seeing the footage there too.

Yes, you do not watch this show for content that is grounded in a great deal of reality. It is entertainment in a similar vein as CSI: Miami. I watch very little network television, but I do catch this series whenever I can because it is fun.

I do understand that enjoying such dumb fun requires me to turn in my monocle and other highbrow items, as television is very serious business.

There's fun and then there's dumb. I can understand certain liberties (God knows I forgive CSI constantly), but I do draw the line on landing a private jet on a 4 lane street surrounded by palm trees. Things that make you go hmmm. Now had they landed the jet at a local airport and used the roads because they were completely empty to transport the guy, THAT would have been reasonable.

Wow what a strange episode this last one was, surprised no one's commented on it. I know it was the 100th ep so I guess it was sort of a retrospective but it really should have been saved for the series finale the way it played out. I mean Wo Fat is really dead now, right? I get that all the other stuff was an alternate timeline but wasn't sure if McGarrett's kidnapping was real or not.

Awesome fight scene between him and Wo Fat, btw.

^^I thought the same thing when I watched it - "wth? Is this the series finale?" It was less a retrospective, because things occurred differently. Everything McGarrett knew was turned upside down - Danny liking being called Danno, Max a doctor, Kono a famous athlete/actress, Jerry a homeless dude, and of course, daddy Jack still alive.

It was weird to say the very least. I hope they never ever do that again. And I'd have been just fine if it had been the series finale!

They'll probably find another way to bring him back. He manages to cheat death rather constantly.

I'm not even sure that McGarrett was really kidnapped given how it played out. I think the whole ep was a what-if but it wasn't clear to me if that was the case.

The problem here is that the casual viewer would surely be scratching head at what why they did this (even knowing that it was an alternate reality), given the way it ended.

Yeah, I didn't really get what him "remembering" everything differently was supposed to represent. Was he simply hallucinating from the drugs or was that his coping mechanism for dealing with being tortured? Or, was it something totally different?

My wife asked me if it was the series finale when they went into the several minute retrospective montage at the end.

Yes, McGarrett really was kidnapped. That aspect of the episode was intended to be the real storyline.

It wasn't clear from the episode, but if I had to guess, I'd say the drugs were making him hallucinate.

And I'm a regular, not casual, viewer and I still scratched my head over wth was going on and why they made this episode.

I'm fairly certain that the drugs were indeed making McGarrett hallucinate and think of the alternate reality. The writers seemed to have tried to make Wo Fat's death very dramatic, so I guess we'll never see him again. There will likely be another long-lasting villain to take his place.

This is a silly series, albeit endearing in numerous ways, so I try not to think much about it all and enjoy the preposterousness as mostly comedic entertainment.

Add another confused regular viewer here. The begining had me wondering if I'd accidently got a rerun of the pilot. Then I wondered if they were going to find away to shoehorn in another pre Walking Dead Norman Reddus guest shot-hey, give him a twin brother who wants to exact revenge for two dead brothers! That's how we get him to come back! But no, the altered scenes were just drug induced visions, sloppily done.

Should have been left for the final episode. Someone in that firefight rescuing McGarrett shouldn't have made it out as well. Couldn't have been the finale as it was only episode seven. Wo Fat was never killed off in the original series.

Confused here too. Is the series still alive? Here in San Antonio, the show gets regularly bumped to unwatchable and unscheduled times because the Spurs basketball games are on the same channel and seem to infest Fridays for whatever reason ruining viewing in this area. Happens over and over. Same for Blue Bloods of course, which is a bigger imposition.

I just read an interview with executive producer Peter Lenkov, and he said that Wo Fat is definitely dead.

That bullet to the head was real, he has no twin named Lo Fat, and he will not be summoned from the dead. They truly trimmed the Fat. Flashbacks are a possibility, however, and his father will naturally become part of the story. Therefore, it is not a case of No Fat, but I would not count on his father being Hi Fat.

There was no episode aired last night. Specials aired the entire evening.
