    Summer Glau for the win – do we know if it will another one of Hawaii 5.0s choose your own ending episodes, like what just happened an ep or so ago.Talking of that ep, did the ptb ever think of including a really silly option in with the 3 possible perps, like, well I can’t really think of one right now, but like when you’re asked to vote on who should be the next President and the last option will be yo’ Mama……. well I would have found it funny. :)

    • I’m very glad that Summer Glau is landing roles in non science fiction tv shows.
      It’s true that she has build her reputation in iconic roles in sci-fi series such as Firefly or Terminator: The Sarah Connor chronicles, or her recent recurring role on Alphas. However, she’s a multi-faceted actress who has proven in the past that she can play a multitude of ages and she’s a talented actress who deserves recognition outside of the sci-fi niche.
      Really excited to see Summer Glau on Hawaii Five-0!

    Summer Glau is a horrid actress. Glad she’s joining a show I don’t watch.

  3. Simpwn says:

    Is this going to signal the end of Hawaii 5-0? Will the Summer Glau curse strike again? Sorry I’m still bitter about Syfy canceling Alphas.

  4. Anna says:

    I LOVE Summer Glau and I LOVE Hawaii Five-0 so this is amazing news!

    Why can’t Dave Annable find a solid show to star on?.I really like him but HATE the last couple series he’s been attached to. Maybe its time for him to move to cable. Atleast they give there series a chance to build an audience.

    • Eric says:

      Ben & Kate is pretty great. There definitely isn’t anything to HATE about it. I understand choosing not to watch it, or being disinterested by it, but to HATE it? Sure it gets low ratings, but it is quite a lovely series.

    Is Summer Glau cast in SHIELD yet?

  7. April says:

    I love that he’s billed as “The Office’s Josh Groban”. Personally, I still like to think of him as Glee’s Josh Groban or “I’m F***ing Ben Affleck”‘s Josh Groban.

    She was adorable in Holly’s Holiday, which was not Sci-Fi/Adventure but a charming holiday tale more geared for families and children. She nailed it as she always does. She’s a good actress and has special abilities that other actress do not possess in addition to her beauty/kindness. Good for her.

  12. Delirious says:

    So… After Alphas, Hawaii 5-0 is the next show that miss Glau is gonna curse?

  13. Jose says:

    Summer Glau is wonderful. These are great news.

  14. Tremay says:

    So, when is Summer Glau getting her own show??
