Attention, Ringfire regarding S07E02 by Mr. Mike » Sun Oct 02, 2016 9:55 am
Show #2 had various "James Bond" connections. But if you watch it, make sure you have a stiff drink beforehand.

Wow! All this happened in one episode? Sounds like a storyline for the whole season.
Doesn't matter because I won't be watching any of this. I already made the mistake of watching the last episode past the CGI Lord scene.

I also made the mistake of watching the first episode beyond the CGI scene. Quel nightmare! I felt like I'd gotten lost in a comic book.

I just don't understand why this episode was placed where it was in the season.
If they want to do some weird James Bond tribute, that's fine, but why interrupt the serial killer story with it?
As I said in a different thread, I think the Five-O writers have ADD. They focus on one thing, then something distracts them, and they either forget what they were previously focusing upon, or they write a lackadaisical, disappointing conclusion to it.
They even did this somewhat with Gabriel Waincroft. How did the writers decide to make him die offscreen in a hospital? I would have never guessed that in a million years (and not in a good way). I was sure he was going to die in an epic showdown with Chin.
Even if they didn't want Chin killing Gabriel so they could have him raise his daughter with less awkwardness, why couldn't Gabriel have died at the hands of another Five-O member, or at least getting blown away during a shootout with the Yakuza?
Getting shot, dragged around injured, safely brought to a hospital, and then dying off screen was about as anti-climactic as it gets.
I should write to Lenkov and tell him to hire Mike as a story editor.
