Summer Glau and Grace Park
19 February 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Summer Glau and Grace Park on the same episode of a TV show! My nerd heart is beating out of my chest! On those credentials alone this should be the greatest episode of all time! Alas, McGarrett and Danno lose credibility when they don't arrest the shrimp truck guy, even after they catch him with a gun. Treat Williams could be a fantastic guest star but he basically chews scenery with Christine Lahti as he portrays a private investigator (as a Magnum PI fan I will never say private eye) trying to get info out of Lahti as McGarrett's mom. So McGarrett lets the shrimp truck guy off the hook and he can't even confront his own mother? Where's Jack Lord when you need him? Just when it starts to really drag they finally have Grace and Summer share a scene. Unfortunately the other detective has way too much dialogue and arrests Summer's character. She could have resisted arrest and then Grace would of had to wrestled her to the ground in a clothes tearing catfight, but no, denied! Chin Ho and Kono investigate Summer's character's father's fight club and then they watch fight films with McGarrett. The fights in the film look more staged than a WWE match. They can afford Treat Williams but can't get better fight footage? Fortunately Grace Park has now been on screen for a good 10 minutes straight (seven of those minutes included Summer) so I'm still watching at this point. An unseen assailant hits Summer with a stun gun. It was her father's assistant, and apparently he was disgruntled at being in Summer's father's shadow. They make Summer fight another woman in an empty swimming pool while drunks watch. Summer totally beats her ass. She hasn't kicked this much ass since the Serenity movie. The 5-0 come to save her. The main goon pulls a knife on McGarrett, who responds by shooting him in the leg. Although story wise it would have been better to see McGarrett best the goon in combat, shooting him in the leg was probably the only realistic moment of this entire episode. Treat Williams and Christine Lahti return in the final scene for some comic relief. If you get a great guest star like Treat Williams you can do a lot more with him than that. I should rate this episode a 3, but Summer Glau and Grace Park being on the same episode bring it back up to a 7. I try hard to like this show but I really hate the way that the 5-0 is totally dependent on computers. I also hate when they finish each others sentences. It takes 5 people to relay dialogue that 2 actors could easily handle and make more interesting (Scott Caan is the only one who avoids this pitfall).
