Hawaii 5-0 Subway product placement the most painfully forced yet.


From Monday's episode.
I've never watched the show (well, the remake).
They should've had Jared walk by, casually ask about the recent crime spree.
Previously: First Look! Jared Fogle's six-pack.

It's not called Hawaii 5-0, it's the Microsoft&Chevy hour brought to you by Subway. It's a show that makes me glad I pvr it and skip the ads in between.

I recently discovered your blog, and I like it, so I left some comments as "Anonymous."

But you know what? Maybe it'll be worth taking on an identity and sticking around.

Can't really hhurt. Can it?

So please let me introduce myself. Andd yes, I really am a dumb lawyer.

A very dumb lawyer . . . and a two-fingered typist.

I have no idea how many times I might have posted that last comment. As I said . . . dumb.

Not a fan of using program titles from the past on dreck shows that bear no resemblance to the original (ok, it worked ONE TIME with BG). copyranter, this really was painful. Thanks.
Anon 12:47: you are not skipping the ads.
Welcome, Dumb Lawyer, I'm new too.

You think this product placement is bad, the plots & writing are even worse!

Several weeks ago, the plot was McGarrett & crew [just the five of them] sneaking in to North Korea, getting into a NK prison, breaking the prisoner out & escaping from the country.
And of course they did this in 44 minutes!

I just had to watch that insanity & train wreck. Bizarre black comedy!
The show is a joke & think it's intended to be one, just like its time slot predecessor CSI: Miami!

They made almost exactly the same "joke" on Chuck this week, though the fourth wall is truly hammered down for any references in that.
