Hawaii Five-O Review: Welcome to the Boring Jungle

The Five-O spent most of "E Malama" running around in the jungle, making for one of the most boring and predictable episodes of the season.

Overall, I don't expect much from Hawaii Five-O. I watch this series for the action, occasional explosions, cool tech and, of course, to see very pretty people make snarky comments to each other as they beat up bad guys. If I'm lucky, I get an excellent story with some emotional depth as a bonus.

I'm done with this show, period. The overplayed antagonistic banter between McGarrett and Dano with Dano's constant barrage of nay-saying at every possible opportunity, to where the dynamic duo now sound like an old gay couple, has grated on my nerves to the point to where it has become akin to fingernails on a blackboard. I can see reruns of these episode becoming a UN approved torture method at Guantanamo in the very near future. Personally I'd rather be water-boarded! Too bad, the potential for this remake was huge.
