Spent a couple of hours watching tv today

I had today off. \o/ I had good intentions of doing house work! I really did. But.....Shaw Cable has this option to watch some current shows (for free) that have aired already. I found the first two episodes of Hawaii 5-0 season II. I've never seen a full episode from the first season but I watched these two episodes despite that. (I'll use any excuse to NOT do house work) It is definitely much "prettier" than the original Jack Lord/James MacArthur original! AND I think I might be hooked.
A couple of comments. :o) I was pleasantly surprised to see "Lock" show up - I hope they keep his character around.
I have hopes that McGarrett isn't always quite so grim about everything. And I'd love to see something happen to Dan-O's coif - honey, it doesn't help you look any taller. And why is there not more air time for Chin???!!! But who am I to pick a hit show apart.
So now I'm off to find out when the show actually airs in my area and find season I episodes to fill in some of the back stories.

Stop watching a tv show out of order! =D I've found that really messes with folks' perceptions of shows.

You have to join the comm to access the post, but this post has a lot of the episodes to download:

Aye-aye m'ame! I've caved and joined the 5-0 community.
Gonna probably watch the whole first season this weekend (if my computer can run them).

Oh, you must watch the first season- at least see the pilot and understand all the chemistry! LOL. It's a fun show and it's how powrhug and I met. :) (and found out we had YOU in common!)

And I like Danny's hair. hehe. I do!

I joined the 5-0 community you and Kare are in. She left me a link to their episode links! I'm starting back at the beginning. \o/

Oh, you'll just love it! And the line about "how long have you two been married?", that comes up a few times through the first season. These two are so perfect together. Enjoy!

Oh, you're going to want to see the middle of season one. That's where the bromance sweet spot is... also there's more Chin and Kona (who are made of awesome).

Okay, I've been convinced, it sounds like it's worth going back and starting from the beginning. I had to laugh at one line in the second episode when they are on horses and the woman they're with asks them "How long have you two been married?" Cracked me up!

I'm with Star_maple on this one...Chin and Kona all the way. I truly don't love McGarret and Dan-o, and from all the eps I've seen, yeah...he is that grim!

I guess they're basing his 'grimness' on Jack Lord's stone-faced acting from the 68-80 original series. I don't ever remember that McGarrett ever cracking a smile. But this McGarrett has pretty eyelashes so, I'll over-look the grim. :o)
I am happily looking forward to more Chin Ho air time!
I wonder what role Kona will have in season two now that she's in big twubble with internal affairs.....
