    I really liked this episode alot. We got some hurt/comfort from Steve and Danny helping was a bonus. Steve ad Danny were funny when they would bicker at each other. I just love them as partners. I also liked how we saw that Danny could take charge of the team also.
  • Good episode

    I thought this episode was good but not great. McGarrett broke his arm yet somehow manages to climb onehanded up a cliff, not possible. Surprise surprise another ex-Heroes cast member guest stars, wonder how many more will show.

    • Petroglyphs (from the Greek words "petros" for rock and "glyphein" to carve) are carved rock, picture writing and rock graphics which are found all over the world. Ancient Hawaiians called their stone art k'i'i pohaku, or images in stone. There is almost no historical evidence of the petroglyph's origin in Hawaii. The figures with triangular torsos, only found in Hawaii, came later than the first images of stick figures. The Island of Hawaii has the greatest number of petroglyphs in the state. Hawaiian petroglyphs are normally found on the smooth pãhoehoe lava, cliff faces or smooth interior cliff walls, on the lava inundated areas of the island, and along trails the ancient Hawaiians commonly traveled.
