CBS announces Michelle Borth will be a regular on Hawaii Five-0 in season 3.

What do you think about Hawaii Five-0 adding Michelle Borth to the main cast?

    I don't see where Borth will fit into the cast as a regular. As in any crime drama, the lead actor and actress always slowly build up romantic interest through the series. They work together and secretly have feelings for eachother. They try topush their feelings away but at the end of the series they always end up together.It adds to the show and keeps viewers interested. It's become very cliché in crime dramas, but it always works and personally i love it. I don't see how this will work since Steve and Catherine are already together. The "romantic interest" idea can't work in this case because the 2 have already been together and they can't slowly fall in love throughout the series.There won't be any tension, suspense, or that "Oh my gosh when will they finally kiss?!?!" feeling. Unless the writers have a different role in mind for Borth, I think this move will be a flop.

    It will be interesting to see how they write her in as a regular. Could be like Max where he is not in every episode. I don't think it will change too much as both her and Steve are very professional so they won't do any of that lovey dovey stuff in the office but I think it will be good for Steve's character to develop, to show more of this side of his personality. I just look forward to Steve's megawatt smiles when he's with her

    She appeared in several episodes (4 I think)during the 1st season, and returned for 1 episode this season. Her character's name is Catherine and she's a lieutenant in the Navy. She and Steve have been dating for a while now.

    unless i'm mistaken she is replacing kono. Again this is why i stopped watching broadcast television. Give me USA. TNT, SciFi channels. They don't kill people off for the sake of ratings. I loved the original Hawii Five-O and loved this until they decided to rewrite because of ratings. As long as there are over 500 channels they will never get back what they had in the 80s.

    She isn't replacing Kono.

    You realize the flaw with this line of reasoning right? 5-0 isn't driven by UST like Castle, Moonlight, Chuck, ect. It's a buddy cop show like Common Law,Starsky and Hutch, The Good Guys etc.
