I tried. I really did.
I was a dedicated “Hawaii Five-0” fan the first season, following the crazy plot lines and budding bromance between Alex O’Loughlin and Scott Caan.
I tweeted about it, I blogged about, I talked about it. Every Monday night I was tuned in, laptop on and iPhone off. This was quality time with me, Caan and some of the most stunning vistas of Hawaii.
I was there for the murders, the drama, the banter, the fun fictitious Hawaii “landmarks” like Kukui High School. I was completely on board.
Then something happened.
Maybe the back-and-forth between O’Loughlin and Caan got old. Maybe the outrageous plots were too much. Or maybe I was getting tired of the blatant product placement — Subway has got to be the worst — that became more commonplace in the second season. But I stopped watching.
And while I’m sure I’m not alone, I don’t represent the majority.
CBS announced today it was renewing “Hawaii Five-0” for a third season. The popular crime drama won its hour for viewers and among adults 18-49 many times this season, according to Nielsen ratings.
People are watching — just not me.
Anyone else feel the same way? Or tell me what I’m missing!
