You know! THAT guy!

Finally watched the season premiere of Hawaii 5-0 yesterday. Shooting! Kissing! Plot holes! Now with added Chi McBride!

So I was watching and I saw a face I recognized and said, “Isn’t that…”

What happened in my head: “You know, the guy from Lost. The hot guy with the dreamy accent because he’s from Scotland, and he has pretty hair. He fell in love with whatsername, with the boat. Penny! Only it wasn’t Penny’s boat. He was the button-pusher! You know, THAT guy!”

What actually happened: None of those words came out of my mouth. Instead, I silently held my palm up, as if pressing it against a window.

My husband: “Desmond.”

And he didn’t even have to go to IM-duh-BAH!

McGarret! Danny! Shooting! Plot holes! Helicopters! Chi McBride! I love this show! Pardon the exclamation points, but if you watch the show, you know it’s an exclamation point kind of show!

Of course, at the end they botched the timeline so badly, my husband and I were compelled to tear it apart. But then we agreed once again that, even though the writers may or may not write these episodes drunk, it’s still one of the most awesome shows on television.

    I love that show. It’s ridiculous and drunk and the timelines fail and the plots don’t make sense and I. Don’t. Care. There’s pretty scenery and the men take off their shirts a lot and really that’s all I need.

    Oh, and my friends and I call it HITG or “hit-guh.” as in Hey Its That Guy!

    Ohhhh. I meant to look that up on IMDb because I was almost 100% sure that was Desmond, and totally forgot. about it after the show (I watched it last night, too).

    So… besides writing great books you’re also a mind reader, eh? (Fits with the current book I’m reading (Susanna Kearsley’s The Firebird). :D

    Sometimes I’m perplexed when I see a book shredded for writing, but also described as crack the reader couldn’t put down. Then I think about Hawaii 5-0 and get it a little bit. :)

    I can’t remember how we lived before IMDb. It’s probably one of the most used apps on my phone. And if you’re in a group talking about an actor, it’s almost a race to see who can pull it up first, LOL.

    Hi Dorothy! I’m glad you’re enjoying the Kowalskis!

    Oh, and it was kind of funny but yesterday, between dinner and prime time starting, we finally watched the season premiere of Parenthood and THERE WAS PENNY!
