Love your home page. Hawaii Five-O was the very first tv show I remembered seeing with my parents when I was a child. I always considered Hawaii Five-O to be the best police drama ever to appear on television. Forget Hill Street Blues, SWAT, and the other tv cop shows. Hawaii Five-O is the best and it rules. All of us who are fans of the show should e-mail or write to the Family Channel and thank them for putting H5O back on television.

I have recently seen #62, The Double Wall, and since being a Dukes Of Hazzard fan, I have noticed a different Sorrell Booke (1920-1994) without the padding and flannel suit that gave him his noted memorable character, Jefferson Davis "Boss" Hogg. There are a few unknowns at the time, Joan Van Ark (Knots Landing and Dallas) and Monte Markham (Baywatch), in which these guest stars are known later in the 1980s and 90s. Speaking of Time and Memories, Kathy Cannon might look like a 17 year old, but later matured on Beverly Hills 90210 as a regular on the series.

Gosh am I ever glad that I taped "Uptight" offa Action 36 out of San Jose instead of off the Family Channel. 36 has so few sponsors that I don't think they're clipping too much. It's also funny that Family Channel gives the show a G rating with all of the episodes concerning heroin and prostitutes. Keep up the good work and the "rigorous scrutiny."

Has anybody counted the total times that Steve McGarrett (A) answered the phone and said "McGarret" and (B) snapped his fingers.

Danno might have drank too much Hawaiian Punch to beat up a likely suspect in the murder of his woman. After watching Beautiful Screamer, the tennis player that was killed first wore a miniskirt that was too short. Should this be censored?????????

LOVE the Hawaii Five-O Home Page! It seems I can't get enough of it. We do not have cable, so listen to this.....my mother lives in Fl. She tapes the weekly episodes for us and then sends the tapes up to us. The day they arrive is a special day in our house! I try not to look at all the episodes at one time, but it is difficult. I'm comprising a special birthday surprise for her by downloading all the great information I have gotten off the Hawaii Five-O Home Page and putting it into a booklet for her. I'm sure she'll enjoy all the "great Stuff" that's in there. We went to Hawaii 1 1/2 yrs. ago. We were very surprsied that there wasn't must mention of Hawaii Five-O anywhere on Oahu. A Hilo Hattie tour guide just happen to mention the Ilikai to us as we passed it or we would not have known about that. Why is that? Is Honolulu ashamed of Hawaii Five-O? My mother used to tape the episodes from her local station before they took them off the air. Thank goodness the Family Cahnnel put them back on (although, I find it ironic that Hawaii Five-O is on the"Family" channel..I hardly find it a family show. We used to have Hawaii Five-O on WOR-TV, here in the New York area, many years ago. My sons, who were then in High School, used to watch when they got home from sch. (4 pm). Why do they take all the great stuff off of regular TV? Well, it was nice chatting with you all. Why isn't there a chat room for us? ALOHA

Is there an episode in 1978 that has Wo Fat kill Chin Ho? (Nope, Chin Ho was knocked off by a Mafia-like greaseball who wanted to ingratiate himself with the boss of the Hawaiian mob. - MQ) Also didn't James MacArthur marry Melody Patterson at one time? (Yes, she was his second wife.) I had trouble downloading any info on Dano! I am having a great time watching these episodes again....I hope The Family Channel keeps its promise to keep airing them in the fall!

I know Jack Lord is a VERY private man. Does anyone know his DOB? (This is controversial -- see the FAQ.) Also,I remember the passing of Kam Fong. (??? He was alive in April/97, I haven't heard anything about his demise!) What happened to Zulu and other series actors? (An article on "whatever happened to..." will appear shortly.) I have recently seen James MacArthur, so am aware of his current looks/status. I am one of MANY who is thrilled Five-O now on Family Channel.. Also, love your site, too!
Biddeford, ME USA - Thursday, July 17, 1997 at 18:53:36 (PDT)
I love Hawaii Five-O. I watch it every night on the Family Channel. On one episode called "Blind Tiger," there was a bomb in Steve's car. I was watching it on tape and suddenly another show came on. I was so mad! I was almost at the conclusion and I missed the end. Too bad!! I love the family channel for putting it on.
Davis, Ca USA - Thursday, July 17, 1997 at 14:12:47 (PDT)
Awesome! Hawaii Five-O DOES have the absolute best theme music EVER! Jack Lord IS the great unsung hero of Ultra-campy-ultra-cool-cheese-ball sex-symbolism of ours or any generation! ROCK ON FIVE-0!!!

I really enjoy your website. It's very well designed. However, I was disappointed that the end of the article about James McArthur was cut off. Any way to see the rest of it? (Must be a problem with your WWW browser, since no one else reported any problems! - MQ)

The 5-O site is brillant!! I love Hawaii Five-O and the pages you have created. I must confess, though, I consult your ep. guide for every show!! Keep up the great work!!

Great site! I have been an H Five0 fan since I was a kid (age now is 37). I was also a short wave listener and one of my favorite short wave programs came on at the same time as Five O (Thursdays at 9pm if my memory is correct). Since this was before the era of the VCR my solution was to audio record the shortwave broadcast, watch Five 0, and then listent to the tape. The best of both worlds!

I really like your site. This is a cool one. I was a fan of Hawaii Five-O ever since it first aired on CBS. I'd love it if they showed the new movie with Gary Busey. Thanks, Charles

Awesome site. Just getting into H50. Is there a movie coming out? (See our page about the tv-movie. -- MQ)

The episode "The One With The Gun" had a silly way to torture a poker player, in which Lorenzo Corman placed Ipecac in the guy's drink, and he gave the antidote, which was water. This was before the commercial break, with the "tidal wave." Also, in Cry, Lie, the house seen where a young Martin Sheen (he looks like Emilio Estevez when he first began his acting career) and his contact are at a home with a swimming pool, and this house was used in several episodes, like By The Numbers, The Joker's Wild, Man, Wild!, and Cry, Lie. After seeing Cry, Lie, the stock footage with Danno (driving towards Kaalawai Place) in a 1966 Galaxie 500 sedan was from the episode Strangers In Our Own Land (#2).

Awesome homepage! I just started watching H50 when it came out on the Family Channel! Couple weeks later, I joined the newsgroup! BTW, I got a question, is there going to be a Hawaii Five-0 movie or a renew of the show? If so, who's going to play McGarrett?
Detroit, Mi. USA - Saturday, July 12, 1997 at 15:11:42 (PDT)
Thanks to the Family Channel for bringing back Hawaii Five-O. I have always been a big fan. Your Website is GREAT! Is Hawaii Five-O episodes on video? If not, please try to get them so we can treasure them. Thanks Wanda Elliott

The theme to 5-0 I believe was performed by a group called the Ventures. My question is, Did the song come before the TV show or was it written specifically for it? By the way if anyone is looking for TV soundtracks, Newbury Comics around Boston carries the 5-0 song on several TV compilation discs as well as on some CDs by the Ventures. Please email me if you know the answer to which came first.

Hopefully I have come to the right place....Summer has arrived (if you use your imagination) and that means time for a summer party. Suddenly a strange but familiar tune came creeping into my head and there was no turning back. But I need your help. I need to get hold of ANY past episode(s) of Five-O, and the soundtrack (plus any particularly cool tunes that were on Five-O) I figure if anyone knows how to help, you do. Any help to find either of these vital accessories, or any ideas for for a great Five-O party will be a lifesaver. Yours hopefully, Joff.

Hawaii 5 O the return: What are your views on H5O with Gary Busey in principle, of course, since it has not found favour with the network this season. I personally do not feel that such a format can actually garner the success of the previous shows. However, clearly, the jury is out on that verdict, until I have the opportunity of viewing the pilot show. By the way, any Jack Lord relatives out there?
London, England/UK - Monday, July 07, 1997 at 08:46:43 (PDT)
Great webpage. One of my favorites is "Hookman" from 1972, and "One big happy family" in 1973. Starting the 5th season when they start the show and show the different actors, they show James Mcarthur looking through a broken glass window, what show did that come from? (#88-89: The Ninety-Second War - MQ) I know that Kam Fong seen talking on a walkie-talkie was from "Didn't we meet at a Murder". Reply back one and all.

I was reading the Honolulu Star-Bulletin on-line and saw a mention of this sight. This is way cool. I was actually an extra on an episode of Five-0. I was stationed at Pearl Harbor from 74 - 76 and was on funeral detail one month. During that month, they filmed an episode at the base. We had to go to Punchbowl for a funeral scene where we met Jack Lord. He was a regular guy and made the whole process much easier on us. Though they say that "Hill St.Blues" was said to be the best cop show ever, I will always maintain that Five-0 was the coolest. Aloha and book 'em Dano

I think that Hawaii Five-O was one of the best shows on television, hands down. The fact that it ran for 12 years is a testament to this. Now that the family channel is broadcasting the episodes again, a whole new generation will discover the excitement that was Five-O. May Hawaii Five-O and its cast live on forever!

I only found Hawaii Five-O on The Family Channel about a month ago and after spending the last five or so hours going through your web site, it seems I have missed a few episodes. Watching Steve and Danny brings back such memories of growing up in the 60s and 70s. You've done a great job here. It would be nice to hear any news on Jack Lord. It breaks my heart to hear he isn't well. I'm one that has not seen Dr. No, but I plan to remedy that very soon. Thanks again for your time and effort on this webside. It is appreciated.

The digitally remastered episode Savage Sunday was "botched", in which the scene with a Latino diplomat in McGarrett's office was cut. There was a reference to a Managua produce outlet, when Chin Ho explained the list of possible suspects that might have aided Elpidio Acuna, since these businesses were owned by refugees, possibly from Nicaragua. No foreign nation is mentioned, but NIcaragua might be a logical choice.
