The ultimate "MacGarrett and Danno are homos" article

I can't argue with a lot of these points.

I have always been perplexed (but more recently than in prior years) as to why they portray McGarrett and Danno as having some kind of more-than-friendship, more-than-co-workers kind of relationship, almost bordering on homoerotic.

Honestly, I don't like those segments at all.

And it's not that I have a problem with gay people or gay couples being depicted on TV. That theme just has no place on Five-O with these two characters.

BTW, the original Five-O was the opposite. There was almost no male bonding among characters. The exception seemed to be at the end of "The Young Assassins", when McGarrett seemed legitimately relieved to see Danno was okay, and not just because they worked together. But even that was of the, "I've known you for a long time and care what happens to you" variety, and had no gay overtones to it.

Homos or not, let's just say that if I knew that 2 cops patrolling my area behaved in this way I would have filed a serious complaint. This goes far beyond acting unprofessional. I'd seriously consider that such 2 cops must have some mental deficiencies. No grown-ups I've ever encountered behave in this way. So there's no way I could accept cops to behave in such a bizarre manner. Imagine someone breaking into your house with intent to do harm and these 2 butt-heads rushing to the scene while ribbing each other about who left the toilet seat up or who squeezes out too much toothpaste or other junk like that. Seriously, who talks like that???? Even a bickering couple would never do that in the middle of a desperate situation. That's why when you watch the show you don't know whether it's a drama or a sitcom. It surely has all the earmarks of a sitcom.
