October is here, bringing with it beautiful colors, pumpkin spice lattes, and my favorite part: cooler temperatures. Fall weather is simply the most gorgeous of all seasons in my opinion. Bring on the chilly, crisp nights and the mild days. What it also brings is more new television, so let’s see what we’re recommending tonight.
Well, my TV romance has been rekindled with season five of Hawaii Five-0 kicking off last week, and what a delicious episode it was. I know, I know… It is possible that I may be a little biased and slightly deranged when it comes to my love of Alex O’Loughlin and this show, but honestly, I don’t care. The opening scene of Danny and McGarrett doing therapy was fantastic and made my week! The other part that really made the episode for me was the way the writers have seemed to learn how to balance the episode and give all the characters story arcs. Adam proposed to Kono, but we don’t know if she really wants to accept, but we do know she’s very scared of losing him. Having more of Jerry (Jorge Garcia) around as the resident conspiracy theorist is never a bad thing in my opinion because he is amusing and beneficial at the same time. What I’m not looking forward to is not having Catherine around yet—when will she be back? I want to see more of the chivalric side of McGarrett, like that scene from last season when he carried her down the stairs. (Confession: It is very possible that in my deluded head, I was dreaming he was actually carrying me…even though I am far from the size of Catherine and he’d be very winded carrying my chubby ass—nonetheless, a girl can dream.) Regardless of the lack of Catherine and opportunities to daydream, I am very pleased and excited that the show is back, and I’m looking forward to seeing what this season brings.
On tonight’s episode, “Ka Makuakane (Family Man),” Five-0 investigates when the young daughter of a Navy Seal currently on a top-secret mission is kidnapped. Meanwhile, with his brother’s life on the line, Danny must locate the $18.5 million he owes his captors.
To see if Danny can come to the rescue, tune in to CBS at 9/8c.
I’ll also be watching Blue Bloods, The Amazing Race, Last Man Standing, Shark Tank, Diners, Drive-ins & Dives, and Z Nation.
