Anyone who thinks Grace Park is wimpy has not seen the border where Liz(Grace Park) was kicking ass long before H50 and the pigeon-toed comment was totally uncalled for.

Just reading the reviews and I have to strongly disagree with the comment that Kono is wimpy. I think Kick-ass Kono is the Best of the Best. In all of Kono's scenes throughout all the seasons, her fight scenes are IMHO realistic and authentic. I invariably end up on my feet cheering "you go, girl!!!" each time Kono is in a fight scene. In my head, I backfilled Kono's story with Steve giving her "Navy Seal" style fight lessons, since she is his protege. Catherine almost had me on my feet, but the only reason I wasn't was probably due to watching her moves to see if they were realistic. Now that I see that she has abilities, I'm sure I'll be on my feet the next time she breaks out the moves. Great to see that this show has 2 strong women role models. I'm looking forward to Doris showing the same level of kick-assedness, if there is such a word :)

Cath is becoming one of my favourite characters. She was great kicking ass. I love her and Steve together. Glad that they are developing their relationship but wish they'd stop portraying Steve so dumb around her at times. We get enough of that when he's around Danny. The whole helicopter thing was a bit silly but I always love to see Kamekona. Loved Chin's uncle, what a great character. The show is becoming enjoyable again. I hope it continues to improve for the remainder of the season. I can't wait so see what the writers have in store for us with Adam and Kono. I'm hoping we get some Adam/Steve time as well. Love the two of them together.

I do enjoy watching Chin's expressions and reactions throughout. And *sigh* ...even the women's libber side in me secretly love the idea of being swept off my feet. Great ending to an entertaining Christmas episode.

No question that Steve and Catherine have chemistry together. Loved the male-female perspective in their debate over asking Ethan to possibly implicate his Dad and how both sides were tested. Steve was his usual tough, navy seal self but tempered with a sensitivity for handling Ethan that I found appealing. Catherine's comments about Ethan reminding Steve of himself at 13 made me curious about Steve's past after finding out his Mom died in a car accident. And kick-ass Catherine was plenty awesome. This season, the writers introduced newcomer, Catherine with restraint and her fight scenes look real and not contrived. Her appearance in most of this episode is because of the exploration of Steve and Catherine's "thing" as well as her skill set. I thought this episode was very entertaining and we got a bit of everyone. Loved Max's "look" to Danno's dig about his social skills. Uncle Choi was fun to watch and we do need to see him again. And I do enjoy watching Chin's expressions and reactions throughout. And *sigh* ...even the women's libber side in me secretly love the idea of being swept off my feet. Great ending to an entertaining episode.

I thought it was a great episode. Liked the story and I liked seeing McG and Cath together, think they have great chemistry and MAN Michelle Borth looks the part kicking ass. I mean c'mon guys, you've gotta admit, H5O has tried to pass off a few wimpy looking females as bad ass-- and I don't just mean dearly departed Lori, I'm including the lovely, willowy, slightly pigeon-toed Kono too. I would have liked to have gotten a bit of back story about Steve's teen years, for all the references they made to the kid being like a young McG, but, of course, there was the stupid helicopter storyline to fill time. Will agree that the "take your date to a drive thru" scene came off like a dumb sitcom stunt. Jodee is right that Steve was not "stupid" with Cath in season 1...

@Mrs. Cleaver. Sorry for the delay. H50 won the time slot with 10.3 million viewers compared to 5.4 for a Castle rerun and 4.5 for a Howie Mandel game show.

To each their own, of course, but this one was a total miss for me. I found it so boring that I literally fell asleep watching and that was a first. I don't think I will bother going back to see the rest of it either. I did enjoy Takei but his part was way too small. Glad it worked for some. I am looking forward to better episodes in the future and maybe tying up some of those dangling storylines (Chin/Malia, Danny/Grace and Kono/Adam/HotEvilBrother).

@Walter-where's the ratings update? I check every week for what you post ;o)
Ok epi, not my fav, not horrible(anything IS better than season 2). Great Uncle, he needs to come back and I LOVE that Chin has 1,000 uncles. Kid was ok, but gotta say 13 year olds are not my fav thing in life. I guess Steve could see himself in the PIA kid.
LOVE that Catherine could kick a$$ with that guy without smudging her eye liner. Love her anyway, she so humanizes Steve. Who IS hot in a tux for sure.
But as the Christmas episode...meh. I woulda loved to see "the gang" around McGarrett's table with Mama McG passing the taters. Instead we end up at the Shrimp Shak? And no one cares that Chin is alone for the holidays this year? Hopefully Danno does...offscreen.
