Am I the only person who thought that the guy who knew Kono and wouldn't tell her from where was actually sort of creepy about it?

The cell phone advertisements in this episode were particularly painful. They need to stop that. The cystic fibrosis charity plug was also pretty embarrassing, but that guy can be shirtless on my television anytime he wants.

The Chin storyline ... makes no sense. First of all, we've entered the mythical police procedure land where it's suddenly far easier to get a conviction tossed than it is in real life. I believe I can say with confidence that all of his uncle's old convictions wouldn't be reopened simply because he was accused of stealing money from evidence, let alone stealing it to save the life of his wife - there would have to be some reason to believe he actually tampered with evidence in a way that affected pending cases.

(Wanna know how difficult it is to get a conviction overturned? Check out the facts of this case of a guy where multiple witnesses put him in a different state at the time, but his lawyers and the prosecutors didn't follow up on them at trial, and he was convicted based on the testimony of two people who picked his photo out of a book.)

But even leaving that point aside - doesn't Chin have convictions, from when he was at HPD before the whole mess started? Won't those be reopened and questioned if he's suddenly convicted of stealing money from evidence now? How about his convictions with the 5-0?

Danny needs to not call himself "Daddy" when speaking to anyone but Grace.

Also, I'd appreciate it if he didn't throw burning coals at a suspect's face. That would be nice, too.

And finally, as for next week's episode...

.... I think I already saw this one. When it was called "A Coffin for Starsky."

No. I mean, I knew I was supposed to be amused by it, so I tried to be amused, but mostly I was uncomfortable. *sigh*

The cell phone advertisements in this episode were particularly painful.

Geez, yes. I get that they need to do that, but there's a difference between, "And now I'm going to use my Windows Mobile to look up something cool!" and "Here, now I will show in detail how I can plug my phone into my car to play music." Gah.

I pretty much want to whack Chin upside the head multiple times for being an idiot. I want to do the same to the rest of the team for not, like, locking him up somewhere to keep him from doing it. And that's leaving aside the not-making-sense part. I normally don't care about it, because it's H50 and my disbelief has great suspension, but in this case they jumped up and down on it until it broke.

*snerk* Yeah, I was thinking the same thing, although I didn't remember the episode name.

And, huh. Apparently last night's ep made me crankier than I thought. :-D

And then he has to go praise the program, because just showing it onscreen isn't enough?

Oh, apparently I blocked that scene from my memory, because all I was thinking of was the standard, "Hey, let's look something up on Bing!" ad, not that. That... was not good. That was weird. Cool tech? Really?
