If We Controlled Your Remote… 5/12/17

Have you ever been at a loss as to what to watch? Too many shows to pick from? We’re here to give you our opinions on what we feel is worth watching. Check it out and then let us know in the comments below what you’re choosing for tonight!

Jenny’s Choice

Last week’s Hawaii Five-0 was another strong one. When Steve got a tip from a prisoner named Naser Salaam, who he visited in Guantanamo Bay. Apparently Steve was part of the group of men who questioned him when he was brought to the prison ten years before, and he was the only one who treated Salaam with any sort of dignity – gave him a prayer quilt, water, food, etc. And when Salaam learned from another prisoner that there was some sort of attack coming to Hawaii, he wanted to repay the favor and warn Steve so he could get his friends and family out. It was great seeing Steve in the flashbacks, showing that we don’t have to act like the bad guys when we’re dealing with the bad guys. In the end, they figured out that the terrorists were planning to shoot off a rocket to take down a plane of soldiers who were coming back with the body of a soldier who’d been killed overseas. Fortunately, Steve himself was able to tackle the guy before he took the shot. They were fighting, and he grabbed the launcher and shot it at the guy, who pretty much just evaporated. It was wickedly awesome and gross, all at the same time. Unfortunately, Steve then learned that the terror attack might have been orchestrated by a cabal in the US government…which I’m betting will play into next season, since tonight’s finale is all about the human trafficking story line.

Meanwhile, Chin met with Abby’s former boss, Coughlin, who said they’re having trouble getting the triads under control in San Francisco, and he wants to start up a task force like Five-0…and he wants Chin to run it. Of course, that would mean Chin having to move to California. Chin said he’d think about it, and he did. He also talked to Steve, who already knew, since Coughlin gave him the heads-up, but he didn’t say yet whether or not he’s going to take the job. He did tell Steve that he was planning to ask Abby soon to marry him, which is awesome. And finally, there was the story line with Hirsh, who is always a fun character. He asked Kono to meet with him and then tried to get her to expunge his criminal record, since he tried to get a loan at the bank to expand his crime scene clean-up business, but they turned him down because of his record. Of course she said no, but Adam took a look at Hirsh’s business plan, which sucked, and helped him come up with a better one. When Hirsh was turned down by every other bank on the island (poor guy! LOL), Kamekona surprises him by giving him an envelope of money – not a loan but an investment, as he’s now a “silent” partner of the business. I love that… I’d love to see a spinoff of Hirsh, Adam, and Kamekona and the crime scene clean-up business! Think of the crossovers they could have!

On tonight’s episode, “Ua mau ke ea o ka ʻāina i ka pono (The Life of the Land is Perpetuated in Righteousness),” McGarrett risks his life when Five-0 attempts their most dangerous rescue yet of young girls trapped in the sex trafficking ring they have been tracking this year. Also, Kono, deeply affected by the case, makes a life-changing decision.

Don’t miss tonight’s season finale on CBS at 9/8c.
