We watched a few episodes from second season and then of course settled in for the premier. It was totally kick ass and although there were a few things that were a bit over the top, even for me, I loved it. I just watched it again, as a matter of fact, and still love it.
I won't get into spoilers but I will say, I love Danny's new ringtone for Rachel. Who comes up with this stuff?!
Unlike last season which was basically a wreck for the first 2/3rds, this one I think holds a lot of promise. It appears, from what I've read and seen in interviews that we are going to have a season of character development for at least Steve, Danny and Chin. I know I'm already excited for a couple of upcoming episodes.
I know a lot of people gave up on the series and the fandom last year. The mess that was created by trying to add a fifth member to the team with a substandard actress really tore the fandom apart. Her introduction was at the sacrifice of what we loved about Five-0 in the first place- mostly the chemistry/bromance of Steve and Danny. Without it, it was like the episodes had been gutted for lack of a better anology.
We have that back in spades now. Thank god. Please, Lenkov and the rest- keep that in mind and try not to screw that up this year. I'm begging you. You're off to a fantastic start, IMHO.
Already looking forward to next Monday. Must be Hawaii Five-0 is back. :)
