    This year is season 7 of H50 on the air now. I have to say that after x2 episodes so far, I think they have finally jumped the shark:unsure: The season opener started off with the CGI of the original Steve McGarrett, meeting the updated McGarrett and it looked really weird. And in the 2nd episode they incorporated a story of a MI6 secret agent teaming up with 5-0 and the story was just a mess compared to previous seasons.
    Kono(Park's character) was forced to dress sexy in a scene and it was not good. LOL! I think she wore pants in that scene and it just wasn't right. They need to shape-up or ship out!

    Not liking that photo. Perhaps her time has past with regard to "provocative scenes." She's 43 now.

    I never really turned into the new Hawaii Five O. I caught a few episodes here and there but it didn't seem very good. I read that it was renewed for season 8. Interestingly, the ratings have been very consistent every year (ranking around 25).

    Hmmm ... not sure how I feel about this. I don't necessarily think every star in an ensemble cast should be paid the same. Are those two the biggest draw? Do they get more screen time versus Daniel and Grace? How essential is it that all the original cast members stay together in the series? This could be a bad move for Grace.

    Both dudes, Caan and O'laughlin are consumate "B-list" actors. In other words, in the big scheme of things, they're both nobodies. To be honest and frank about it, Grace Park is the biggest name on that marquee. Given her solid accomplishment and resume' and she's been doing it a long time.
    Fact is Grace and Daniel was in the original pilot and has been there since as cast members of a four ensemble. Nobody is telling me that O'laughlin is the glue of that series? He's a nobody and just got lucky getting that role. Even today he's NOT that more recognizable. He's vanilla. So yes, this is an ensemble cast. All for one, one for all.
    We don't know the background goings on with CBS and those four. For all we know the other two are pushing for equal pay because it does'nt come out of their pockets. If they remained silent the whole time, then they're douchebags about it.
    CBS is just another evil corporation out to use people. That's all.

    CBS claims the offered Park and Kim "a lot of money" to stay on Five-O. They say they bargained hard to keep them around the show. They even called Kim's raise "‘unprecedented."

    “The truth is this: Both actors chose not to extend their contracts,” “Five-0” showrunner Peter Lenkov weighed in on the Kim-Park departures last month. “CBS was extremely generous and proactive in their renegotiation talks. So much so, the actors were getting unprecedented raises, but in the end, they chose to move on.”

    Looks to me like Grace Park (and Daniel Kim) were just tried of being on the show and have other plans. Any word on what Grace is doing next?

    From a new article by The Wrap published on MSN today.

    So far, and this is fact : It's undisputed that the producers did not match the salary(s) of the other two caucasian actors and there were still were still NO revenue sharing as full compensation perceived by the asian actors. The part of ""‘unprecedented." raise is moot.
    If they didnt match, then they didnt match regardless of the amount offered. It was'nt equal share, and that's all they are after and I believe them.

    I think Daniel Kim is already working other projects and has already produced work that's "in the can", as they say. I thought I saw him in a preview last week?
    Anyways, this is also THE chance I am waiting for Grace to capture a more sexy role in either a series or a movie. Jeez, she limits herself so much all these years that maybe casting directors have passed on her or just forgot about her?
    Grace could have done so much better in MI3 and/or the movie "Deception" real sexy bit roles!(y)

    More updates...........

    I agree to this headline (y)
    ‘Hawaii Five-0’ Will Never Be The Same After Daniel Dae Kim And Grace Park’s Exit

    If (the upcoming) season-8 is not the final season and they're not cancelled? I do know they have already lost a good amount of fans.
    Is 'Hawaii Five-0' Season 8 The Final One For The CBS Series?

    "As if that’s not enough heartache, rumors were swirling that Alex O’Loughlin and Scott Caan might also be off the show soon. Reports revealed that Danny Williams might be ready to shift his career and Steve McGarrett might not even surviveHawaii Five-0Season 8 at all."

    Putting in three new cast mates is like putting a band-aid to a major artery cut! (n)

    Yes, but after 8 years it likely is getting tired. It might be be a fresh start for the series. Consider how Law & Order and Law & Order SUV maintained popularity for ages with many top character changes. Although it would be jarring for Steve McGarrett to die, the show is called "Hawaii Five-O" not "McGarrett".

    Is Battlestar Galactica coming back? What does she mean is she "focusing" on it? That was a great series.

    I agree with you, it's a real stretch going on eight seasons. As a big fan, I've seen the writing on the wall. Seasons 6&7 were slow starters and did'nt pick up speed in story writing after several episodes. In other words they're running out of creative juices in there.
    Scott Caan started dropping out of episodes half-way thru the series as he is pursuing other opportunities like movies&etc.
    Yeah, 8 is a good number to start bailing out.

    As far as BSG, the recent San Diego COMICON was a fan appreciation opportunity. I think they said that if it were to come back, then it would be a reboot from scratch. I think one of the producers said they were approached from a competing network to talk about it.

    Grace mentioned in her interview that she wanted to focus on her appearance(s) as a BSG cast member and not talk about anything else not related. She did not mention H5O but really hinted that she's still pissed about it.
    I mean, she's basically unemployed now with nothing else to do.

    Not much of a reboot fan. I'd be interested in a continuation. It's hardly like everything was resolved at the end.

    I'm with about not being a fan of reboots so much. It works for others but I don't think for BSG.
    About the series ending : I think the BSG writers intentionally left the ending open ended. Yeah, it opens it up for continuation. There's alot of stories left that is untold. They released "The Plan" afterwards and it did a good job of filling-in some holes. They also created and released a pre-quel "Blood&Chrome" which features a young Admiral Adama. Both features satiates the hard core fan like me.

    Most recent update for Grace:
    ...an in-depth discussion with her about her TIFF 2017 film, how she became a part of the project, and the various individual topics that the film touches upon.

    And an interesting note to Dan Kim's newest role...
    Daniel Dae Kim Will Un-Whitewash Ed Skrein’s Role in the Hellboy Remake
    Update, September 13:Daniel Dae Kim officially confirmed his casting ina statement toThe Hollywood Reporter, and praised Ed Skrein for turning down the part. “I applaud the producers and, in particular, Ed Skrein for championing the notion that Asian characters should be played by Asian or Asian American actors,” Kim toldTHR. “He could not have addressed the issue more elegantly and I remain indebted to him for his strength of character.”

    a shameless plug for Grace Park's "sexiness"
    (something Snow think's she's no longer in the running for)
