John Manicote Usefulness

I was wondering if the HFO regulars think DA Manicote helped enhanced your viewing pleasure of Classic HFO or could HFO episodes be just as effective without Manicote's appearances\scenes.

Probably enjoyed Bait Once, Bait Twice because Manicote is very angry after the witness is killed and McG takes responsibility for it but says we will get the perpetrator for murder. V for Vashon The Patriarch cool too. Manicote has to go after McG for Murder 2. That's when McG shoots an unarmed Sullivan in the elevator. JC

I recall he was a bad guy in 3,000 Crooked Miles to Honolulu where he gets sick on the plane and then gets killed in the hotel!

I guess I was always OK with Manicote. To me, consistency of fixed characters throughout the duration of the series was a plus, and Manicote seemed to have some staying power once they got rolling.

Episode idea - how about Manicote the District Attorney being on the take!!! Kind of a flip-flop of the Vashon/McGarrett case
