My review for Hookman
Still not sure why people got upset about the gunshop moment. Both sides have been represented, Danny got a lot of flack from the shop-owner and obviously no back-up on the gun thing from Steve. Besides he clearly said ‘Idiots with guns’, he didn’t say everyone with guns. So, I’m stumped on that. The only explanation is that people have become extremely sensitive on that topic for reasons we all are aware off. Still for me no reason to stop watching a show for 30 seconds of a topic, that in one way or another is coming up on different shows in different ways.
And I firmly believe if it had been any other character on the show but Danny, people would’ve been less drastic.
Personally I loved this ep, perfect acting by both Scott & Alex.
I’m glad they show Steve in more emotional moments too, loved their soft talk in the car. Especially since I think a lot of people believe soldiers & sailors have to be all tough & don’t get too emotional, which might at the end of their tours make it that much harder for them to find their way back. That though is just a thought. While having been married to a soldier, he never had been send into combat. So I won’t know.
Wished they’d have stucked with the orignal shooting at the end, namely Danny shooting the Hookman, but this way Kono got her sniper moment again too.
Not sure what people are talking about with Danny whining and such either. He made a lot of points during his rant, especially during the car-chase…people do tend to stop on the right side when emergeny & police cars approach.
I love Danny just the way he is & he settled down a lot since S1. However I can understand that others may like another character better. For me Danny is THE character & no one else can play him in such a perfect manner. This ep was amazing for me.
Also kudos to both Peter Weller & Jason Koger. Perfect for their roles as well.
