| Can't disagree with the previous reviews
I have now watched every episode from Season 1 to 12 and can't agree more that the last two seasons were sub-par with a few exceptions.

There were too may far fetched plots that were getting into the supernatural and occult which means that the writers were stretching for stories. There were usually plot holes that you could drive a truck through, although I realize that these shows are just escapism. Today's shows try to be more realistic and introspective which is not necessarily a good thing.

Also, McGarett was not involved or as emotive as in earlier seasons.

The Kimo Carew character was too much of a peer to McGarett, while Williams to McGarett was more of a father and son relationship. The chemistry was not there with Kimo. You felt that Williams would be the head of Five-0 someday which is something that you never felt with Kimo.

Really missed Chin Ho too!

I also think that the female addition, in the last season, to the team could have been utilized more in the story lines. As another reviewer mentioned, for the most part this role was used as a gofer.

Anyway, just to add to another review of the final episode I found the chase in the jungle/forest unbelievable. Wo Fat had a machine gun but missed McGarett so many times at close range. This made the whole plot unbelievable even in the world of TV Fantasy.

A very disappointing end to a series that was so good for ten seasons.
