Still home sick, so before I lose myself in tumblr and twitter and everything else "Hawaii Five-0" here is my meta reaction!

GEORGE TAKEI!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!11

GEORGE TAKEI!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1

AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH, there was George Takei on my favourite show!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1


Did you notice the amount of poultry in this episode? How many hens do these people need?!

GEORGE TAKEI!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Okay, um, yes, so... what an endearing episode, I must say.

They really are pushing the kid centric stories, aren't they? They see the chemistry between Alex and kids, which is clever and a good direction to take if you ask me.

I do have a slight quibble with comparing Steve to the boy and vice versa, it seemed a bit of a stretch, not really all that necessary, I think Steve would be sympathetic to any child, because he's that sort of man. But you have to compare boy to men, because that's the formula, isn't it.

Also, Danny in that magnificent blue shirt. Oh my (shut up). And Danny's dual heritage continues to be solidified by calling the ridiculous propeller beanie a yarmulke. You can pick up "Oy vey", "schmuk" and "Hanukkah" when you live in a place with lots of Jews. To call a hat a "Yarmulke", well, Danny is my people and I'm keeping him!

Loved that Steve invited Danny over for a Christmas meal with him, Doris and Catherine. Someone needs to write that fic as soon as fucking possible okay! I need the UST between all three of them and Doris trying niggle out what the fuck that is all about!


Maybe I'll just write it myself.

Anyway, dapper Steve in a tux, need I say more!?!?

Chin covered in muck and his uncle Choi is GEORGE TAKEI! :D :D :D

I'm sorry, this is possibly the worst reaction you've ever read from me, but I can't get over all the good stuff in this ep!

Catherine kicked major, major ass.

I'm displeased that both she and Kono stayed at "home" throughout the episode while Steve, Danny and Chin went out and scouted the island, but I do not mind that Catherine showed her major skills.

I needed more Kono though. I want more Kono! Yes, I'm saying that as a slight wail.

What really got to me though, was when Steve said to Cath that getting to the truth hurt and that the boy will find out sooner or later if the father did commit the crime, how clear it was that Catherine was thinking of the information she was withholding from Steve about Doris torturing that guy.

I can't believe we have to wait another month to see where that story is going.

In the meantime I will bask in the idea of Steve in a tux. Oh yes.

GEORGE TAKEI!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Agree with everything you say, but to reenforce the salient point: there simply must be more George Takei in 5O! Since we're, finally, seeing more than just the tourist brochure version of the island, I don't have a problem with the damn chickens - an invasive specie to Hawaii that went feral.

George Takei is great as a moonshiner. And Steve in a tux, and Danny and the beanie...

And Catherine kicking ass (even though it seemed like her CQC wasn't having much of an effect on the guy until she threw him down a flight of stairs...).

And Danny having issues with Grace being gone for the holidays. I wounder how acrimonious it's going to get between him and Rachel.

Close Quarters Combat - I'm not sure it's a single style or a combination of martial arts and techniques, but everybody in the military gets training in it so they can defend themselves at ranges shorter than gunfire (or in situations where shooting is a bad, bad idea).

V and Justice

V: Ah, I was forgetting that we are not properly introduced. I do not have a name. You can call me V. Madam Justice...this is V. V... this is Madam Justice. hello, Madam Justice.

Justice: Good evening, V.

V: There. Now we know each other. Actually, I've been a fan of yours for quite some time. Oh, I know what you're thinking...

Justice: The poor boy has a crush on adolescent fatuation.

V: I beg your pardon, Madam. It isn't like that at all. I've long admired you...albeit only from a distance. I used to stare at you from the streets below when I was a child. I'd say to my father, "Who is that lady?" And he'd say "That's Madam Justice." And I'd say "Isn't she pretty."

V: Please don't think it was merely physical. I know you're not that sort of girl. No, I loved you as a person. As an ideal.

Justice: What? V! For shame! You have betrayed me for some harlot, some vain and pouting hussy with painted lips and a knowing smile!

V: I, Madam? I beg to differ! It was your infidelity that drove me to her arms!

V: Ah-ha! That surprised you, didn't it? You thought I didn't know about your little fling. But I do. I know everything! Frankly, I wasn't surprised when I found out. You always did have an eye for a man in uniform.

Justice: Uniform? Why I'm sure I don't know what you're talking about. It was always you, V. You were the only one...

V: Liar! Slut! Whore! Deny that you let him have his way with you, him with his armbands and jackboots!

V: Well? Cat got your tongue? I though as much.

V: Very well. So you stand revealed at last. you are no longer my justice. You are his justice now. You have bedded another.

Justice: Sob! Choke! Wh-who is she, V? What is her name?

V: Her name is Anarchy. And she has taught me more as a mistress than you ever did! She has taught me that justice is meaningless without freedom. She is honest. She makes no promises and breaks none. Unlike you, Jezebel. I used to wonder why you could never look me in the eye. Now I know. So good bye, dear lady. I would be saddened by our parting even now, save that you are no longer the woman I once loved.
