Being McGarrett

Alex O´Loughlin ~ An Intense Study

One of the things I have experienced, subjectively, is an ease and relaxation on a level that I’ve never experienced before so that when the cameras are rolling, the choices that come in are much more natural.

There’s a subtlety to that that is disarming for me and enjoyable. It’s a highlight for me, those tiny moments that you don’t see but I feel.

The Steve McGarrett Story – No # 145 (Epi 7:02)

Alex O´Loughlin ~ An Intense Study

We continue our story ….

As promised I will continue with my thoughts on the episodes of Season 7. I’m kind of sure nobody cares about the episode anymore, but I am just doing it for myself, because I like to finish stuff that I have started. Well sometimes. Ask Paula, she complains a lot about all  the stories in drafts that I never finish.

At least we got a short glimpse of the real Steve McGarrett story again, but more of that at the end……

This episode was a ‘joyride’ of nearly every British spy movie cliché in the book ….. Let us see how Steve handles it. Any James Bond poise displayed by him?


Of course this was not only the second episode of the season, but also the second in the series of the serial killer …..

We meet the profiler Alicia played by Clair Forlani

365 days of fun – we are ONE !

Alex O´Loughlin ~ An Intense Study

Today a year ago, after a month of heavy pregnancy (from FOYeur) and hard labor (from Paula), this site went live. We have had 365 days of fun and laughter.


Some days with less laughter and others with more naughty….. 😛 – but it has never been boring (notfor us in any case).  We always aimed to post something from everything Alex has done, and that has happened. We know the blog is heavy with Steve (we are not calling him fat! 😯 ), but with Hawaii Five-0, S4 starting soon, there is more of Steve to come…mcfun

Mick always keeps our interest, but with only 16 episodes, well…sometimes we need to let Mick rest for a while. But he will never leave us for too long. ♥


Alex´searly career had so much variety and we do hope…

Alex O’Loughlin: Fans vs fakes

Alex O´Loughlin ~ An Intense Study

For me being a fan of something, is about having fun and finding the things that you like about your subject, to share with others and to embracing  it. We therefore do not really like to talk about the bad stuff here often …. But for me it is important to stay as close to the truth as possible and to keep it real …….

It is really great news that Alex’s official Facebook page got verified a while ago. Now we all know that it is real and connected to him. At least we also now know that if there is anything posted on it, that it must be something coming from him. Although I still doubt if he will ever post anything personally on there.  This Alex’s account: Alex O’Loughlin

Life around #AlexOLoughlin – 3½ weeks in review (18 Dec – 10 Jan ’17)

Alex O´Loughlin ~ An Intense Study

At last we got through all the eating and family gatherings during Christmas and the holidays. And of course we kissed the old year goodbye ….. All this while things were really quiet here in our Alex O’Loughlin world of fangirling. I think it is the first time in all these years that there were no “fresh” news or pictures of Alex during this period. 😦

But at least we know Alex is back on the set and he is looking as good as ever (if not better), doing his thing as Steve McGarrett. My guess would be that he had a good relaxing time with his family and friends during the hiatus, and that is just as great as no news.

Thank you to those who have posted some pictures and also to those how found some old ones. Please (Sadie, Titine, BeeM and the others
