They need the tension between Danny and Steve to power it- I like Catherine, but the best bits are when d and s are snarking at each other. They underuse Chin too.
The mother turning up plot happened in Grimm too at about the same time!
We sit there and go "no back story, don't put in a back story"- all the yakuza/ wo fat/ Rachel and Danny and possible pregnancy type stuff is always really badly done- they need a better story editor, or whoever has a grasp on the story arc for the whole series.
The script is getting cheesier by the week though.
And that storyline with kono and the yakuza guy is just nonsense. As is mcGarrett's mother's return from the dead. I felt so sorry for his sister, dp and I spent weeks screaming 'tell your sister her mom is alive!' at the tv. And then she turned up with that pervy old man
Just watched season 3 episode 9 that recorded last week, supposedly new, and I swear I've seen it before! Danny and the Victoria's Secret models, and max and rumor willis? I can't find an earlier broadcast date on google, so someone please tell me it's been on before!
