thegrrrl2002: (Danny and Steve at the curb)
[personal profile] thegrrrl2002


Okay, raise your hand if you went back and rewatched the couch-gument before moving on to the rest of the ep. :D I certainly did. Twice. Just to make sure I really saw what I saw. Danny sniffling over an alien giving birth, Steve being his smoothest with the arm on the back of the couch, heck, Steve trying to SNEAK into Danny's apartment. Why? Just because he could. Because he's so ninja. Except, you know, not.

I love that we've gotten to see the goofier, relaxed side of Steve in these past few eps. I've missed him! I was afraid the writers had forgotten that he's kind of a dork. And incredibly fond of Danny.

I absolutely loved this ep. It felt right. I loved all the Steve/Danny moments and of course, I loved the dog. He was adorable! And Danny with dog? The adorability goes to eleven. I'm just sayin'. Even with the poop in Steve's office (oh, Steve, your face.)

So nice to have Kono being Kono! Being adorable with Chin! Teasing him about getting the munchies! And Max, with the camaro. I love him more and more with each ep.

I never watched "Heroes", but I did really like the guest star guy. I hope he shows up again.

Also, would someone please explain to Five-0 that you should surround the suspect first, before announcing yourselves? Not that I mind watching them run, but, you know, it's getting silly at this point.

This ep hit all the right notes for me, and nothing felt rushed, even with all the supporting cast popping in to do their part. So happy to have my show back!!

OMG, I love the couchgument!!! I love when Smooth Dog (*snort*) says, "You okay?" Hee. And the little "Shh." "Animal." Danny TOTALLY calls Steve "Animal" when they're having sex.

Animal. Hee! I love the way he says it, too. And yes yes yes, he calls Steve that during sex, with a kind of undisguised glee. :D

I loved how STUPIDFACE FOND Steve was of Danny through this. His reaction to the dog taking a dump in his office was the barest of things - he's all, the dog means something to Danny, I'm just going to move right along . . .

I also loved the argument about "we" are not going to keep him. :)) Oh Steve.

Steve is pretty sure Danny is THE BEST THING EVER. IN HIS LIFE.

He just looked kind of resigned to the dog taking a dump in his office, too. It was very sweet.

And WE? I'm an adult, Steven, I can make my own decisions. :D

Can we please stop talking about the dog? Please? I'm using my manners, I said please.

From: [personal profile] hllangel
Grunny (Greg Grunberg) isn't from Lost. He's from Heroes, and worked with Masi Oka on that show. I cracked up at the "Do I know you?" bit.

That said, yes to everything. Last night was the show I fell in love with again. Everyone was in character. The pacing felt right. And they managed to integrate Lori so that she didn't feel pasted on and didn't take time from everyone else.

And the DOG. OMG SO CUTE.

From: [identity profile] thegrrrl2002.livejournal.com
Oh duh. Yes, thank you, I need to fix that.

The team dynamics worked really well for me, it didn't feel like anyone's moments were rushed or awkwardly worked in. And I wish that dog could be on every week. So adorable! With that doggy face! He was actually quite a handsome pup.

From: [personal profile] hllangel
He was such a cute doggie! And Danny was so clearly smitten with the dog, and now that he's given the dog to Grace he can go visit, and look Grace, isn't a dog so much better than Mr. hoppy? Come on, we'll take him to Steve's and he can go swimming and bring that wet dog smell into the house and Steve won't be able to do anything about it.

(until later)

Actually, he was in Lost too, just very briefly. He was the pilot of the plane who was found alive in the wreckage, but was pulled out the cockpit window by... something.

That's right! I forgot that he was in it for about three minutes. :)

Amen to everything you said.

I never watched Heroes either but I knew Greg and Masi co-starred in it. I watched Greg on Alias and I thought he was adorable so I was happy to see him last night.

Couch scene was great and how cool was it that they were watching a pretty slashy movie.

Greg really was adorable! He definitely needs to come back.

So cute on that couch. I need to watch that scene yet again. And again. :D

I absolutely loved the timing in this episode - whoever did the editing was great. And I loved that Grunny played such a warm and emotional character - it was nice to see a reaction to loss that didn't involve gritted teeth and mayhem. (I still love you, Steve!)

Date: 2011-11-08 07:19 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] thegrrrl2002.livejournal.com
Hah, yes! Greg was all warm and fuzzy, it was very sweet. Not that Steve isn't. He just expresses it differently. :D

Good point about the editing--I didn't have whiplash from the scenes jumping around. Some of the earlier eps this season were kind of frantic.

The dog was challenging Steve for dominance AND claiming Danny as his! Of course STEVE WILL POUT OVER THIS!

I also think I need fic about Steve being miffed that the dog got preferential treatment from Danny all throughout the case and that Danny still hates Hawaii.

Also? That apartment is one huge metaphor for Danny's private life right now. Oh Danny.

Date: 2011-11-08 07:21 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] thegrrrl2002.livejournal.com
Steve may never stop pouting. Until Danny pats his ass and says "Watch your tail, babe.". :D

And Steve is trying to be miffed about the dog, he really is, but then he sees Gracie hugging it and they're both so happy together and Danny's beaming and okay, fine, maybe the mutt isn't so bad after all.

Same here, I really loved this. I wish Chin and Kono had been in the final scene, but other than that, this is my Five-0 again. And my Steve. *snuggles ep*

Joe Halpin should write every episode. Nodding as I read this. Oh Steve/Danny Chin/Kono - this is what I've been missing this season - the effortless, natural chemistry of the team. So much fun last night with the bromance, the dog, Max, Fong and Kamekona. So happy to have an ep I could enjoy and savor.
