Jack Lord appears in a late 1950s (?) film shot entirely on location in historic Williamsburg, located in the Virginia tidewater area, just east of Richmond. The film chronicles the scocio-political events taking place in the colonies just prior to the outbreal of the American Revolutionary War. Jack Lord plays a "Mr. Frye," who is (I think) a ficticious planter located in Williamsburg. Mr. Frye undergoes a bit of soul-searching as he is transformed from a loyalist subject of the British crown to an eventual proponent of the revolution. At the end of the film, Mr. Frye proudly blesses his teenage son's enlistment in the local militia. This film is run constantly on one of Williamsburg's cable TV stations. Modern-day visitors to Williamsburg (which has become a regional conference-hosting center in addition to the historic settlement and park) can enjoy this obscure film virtually 24 hours a day.

I am a big Hawaii Five-O fan. I regret that I have to start back working because I can't watch Hawaii Five-O. Its the only police show I enjoy watching.

Looks like KERI's uncle is off to a good start. I hope the Columbia House videos work over there in England -- or don't they? I can't e-mail him, (since I am using my public library's Internet computer) but I hope some others can help him. Good Luck, AHorse.

The station here that shows the Five-O episodes showed the first half of Cocoon yesterday. Now that I have the Columbia House video, I can see what a DIFFERENCE there is between the two! The lighting in the Columbia House version of Cocoon is brighter, the colors are SO much better. McGarrett's and Kono's suits are blue in the Columbia House video -- the tv station's version makes them look black. Watching the tv station's version, I'd never have known the interior of McGarrett's Mercury is red. I know "Julie" made comments like this about the Columbia House version, but now that I've COMPARED the two versions against each other, I am sold on Columbia House. I'm afraid I will have to buy the entire library now, knowing the quality is head and shoulders above the tv station versions!

Well, the local station that's airing Hawaii Five-O almost did it to me again! Came home for lunch, ran back the tape and saw that they'd switched the schedule around again. Hawaii Five-O is no longer on at noon, now it's back to 5 p.m. again. They're running the first season still, and I have most of them, but I'm missing some episodes after the VCR ate two of my tapes =:0, so I don't want to miss one I might not have yet -- like Once Upon A Time, which should be coming up on Tues & Wed. I guess I have to give our station a little credit, they seem to be showing them in order. I wouldn't have known that, though, if I hadn't seen them all in order here, thanks to this home page! I don't watch this station much except for the Five-O episodes, so I don't know if they gave any warnings about the time change. I'm never even sure from one day to the next whether they'll let the END CREDITS run all the way through or whether they'll clumsily cut it off somewhere before then. I'm curious to see how WGN does with things like that. I know the episodes themselves are chopped up, but I still believe WGN will do a better job than our local station.

Here in the Philly area, McGarrett airs on WGTW, Channel 48 twice a day, at 10 & 11 AM. Today (9/11/1998) aired "Full Fathom Five", so we're starting a new sequence! Cool website - only can access it through my county library! (Am not yet online!)

I was on a United Airlines flight and saw a feature article in their magazine about Hawaii 5-0. Didn't see any mention of it here, but thought it was a good article. Fans should check it out. (I have been told about this article, but since I don't do too much flying, I have no easy access to it. If someone would like to send me the article (or a copy of it), I can scan it in and put it up here somewhere. This article has a problem, I am told -- instead of www.mjq.net (WWW.MJQ.NET), the Web page reference is www.mjg.net (WWW.MJG.NET) -- MQ)

Fantastic job!!! I have been a 5-0 fan since I was a little kid. In my early teens my parents took me to Honolulu and I could visualize the opening credits of the show. I have enjoyed watching 5-0 reruns on KVOS (as I see you have) and wish they would always play 5-0 at 10:00 am :( Next time James is in town bring him over to the other island!!! Keep up the great work.

Hi thanks MQ for answering my question about Al Harrington . I read what has been written about him. I am sorry if I offended you in my last letter refering to your wife helping you I was going by the pictures from the convention so only assumed that she helps you on the guest page My apoligies. (No offense taken, my wife helps me out translating the occasional Japanese phrase used on the show, that's all! - MQ) Thanks for all the hard work you do always enjoy reading this page. thanks Sandy

Hi everyone! Always glad to read this page. I have been watching the fifth season and have really enjoyed Ben. Does any one out there know where Al Harrington is now and if he has a home page or not? (Don't know about a home page, but there is a link on this page -- http://www.mjq.net/fiveo/searching.htm which tells what he was up to a couple of years ago. -- MQ) Mike always appreciate the hard work you and your wife (???? - MQ) do on these pages, thanks, Sandy.

I am a very big fan of Hawaii Five - O and really enjoy your website, keep up the excellent work! There is a lot of great information, pictures, and soundclips. FIVE-O is still an excellent show and I really enjoy watching it again. I recently found a copy of the soundtrack which is very good. It would be nice if they re-issued it on CD. Jack Lord was really cool. He was a great actor, and had the BEST hair! It was truly a sad day for me when I heard he passed away. Aloha, Jack!

The mail came today, and was I excited!! A package from Columbia House!! COCOON had arrived, and sooner than I expected. I ordered it less than two weeks ago. It was great not to have the poorly timed breaks to go to a commercial about removing unwanted hair or home security >:(. I COMPLETELY forgot how the pilot opened with Jack Lord running down that pier/sidewalk! But when I saw it, it came right back to me. It seems like FOREVER since I'd seen that. I saw the pilot once before when CBS was showing those late movies after the 11:00 news, but that was over 25 years ago. I forgot about the extra scenery, too. I don't remember the Family Channel or the other station (whichever one showed Cocoon -- in two parts) showing the opening credits like they did in the movie. I was very glad to get it. As far as the missing scenes some have commented on, I don't remember them, so I don't miss them. However, I WAS right about the scene I thought I remembered where McGarrett kisses his secretary on her birthday. It seems whenever I think about the pilot, I remember it in black and white. I think that was just before the Curtis Mathis console was taken in for repairs :). This is a GREAT way to mark the 30th anniversary of the show's beginning. When I was a kid, waiting every week to see the show and having to wait another week before I could see it again, I never dreamed that I would EVER be able to tape DAILY episodes of the show, or have my own copy of the commercial-free PILOT! What a country!
