Right Grave, Wrong Body is 1 episode that I'm glad was brought up in score and the like. Very solid episode. The Identity Kit gets a workout. A strong Cioffi performance HPD man trying to find the stolen gun. Watson plays excellent villains and great in this role. This is an underrated episode as Classic HFO has so many top shelf ones. What are your FAV moments in Right Grave, Wrong Body? JC

It does sound like that particular composition of “The Long Wait” that’s on the official soundtrack is from LEOPARD ON THE ROCK, even though it was first heard in ONE FOR THE MONEY. It actually starts at the :35 second mark on that track. Before that we actually hear the “Cocoon” theme from the pilot that I mentioned in my earlier post, when Hennessy and later McGarrett are suspended in the Cocoon.

Hi, Inglewolf, I haven't heard from you for about 6 years! Send me an e-mail (link at bottom of discussion forum page) so I have your current e-mail address.

I doubt if any of the season sets have the "Play All" option other than the one you mention. I checked the second and third seasons, and the only "All" option has to do with the Episode Promos, which continues up to the 9th season.

After that, there isn't a "Play All" for the promos. I don't know if there were any promos for the last three seasons. You can see some of the disc menus for seasons 10-12 here:

THE LONG WAIT was also heard in the second season episode, LEOPARD ON THE ROCK, when the daughter of Savang was preparing and almost shoots Kono.

This is the original Mort Stevens composition as heard on the Five-O soundtrack album.

H50 1.0 FOREVER, I just remembered that "The Long Wait" also plays at the end of "Right Grave, Wrong Body" when Five-O is moving in on Charles Cioffi in his apartment as he's watching them from his upstairs window. Is that the season 7 episode you're thinking of or another one?

Sorry, I never unveiled my stars for A Gun For McGarrett. Would give this episode a strong 3.5 out of 4 stars. In accordance with Mr. Mike's 4 star system. It was a Classic episode to me for several reasons. Marnie the art shop owner was very beautiful and sweet. She was the perfect "Gun 4 McGarrett." It was an intelligent plan. Savage also excelled his role as the criminal mastermind. He was 1 of my FAV villains with his accent. It's also a good Frank episode. His informant with his info helped the case to find who was behind it. One of the diuscussion forum regulars made a salient point months back. He/she wondered if McG picked up that Marnie and Savage had similar accents. Can't remember if McG vocalized this. Marnie did ask McG some questions at dinner but it wouldn't be that out of order. Learning about someone like a 1st date. There's a scene I missed before when Marnie takes a cab. Five-O team doing their surveillance. She meets Savage which ties them together. Question Of The Day: Do you enjoy Season 4 or Season 5 Classic HFO more? JC

Hello and Happy Today. I'm a LONG-time visitor to this site who finally clicked on the link and was pleasantly surprised to see the discussion seems to be for Classic Five-O. That for me is still the ONLY Five-0. Maybe I'll get into this new Five-0 a couple of years after it goes off the air--that's when I first got into Jack Lord Five-O.

I only quick-scanned the first two pages so forgive me if my question has been answered before. It's about the DVD box sets of which three different ones appear on Amazon. Do any of these box sets have the Play All feature for ALL the seasons? One thing I've always been disappointed with the original DVD releases is that only the first season has Play All. I just like to drop a disc in and have it play in the background while I putter around the house and garage, as well as overnight (I'm one of those who can't sleep without the TV on!).

This question came to mind as I just picked up the 'Cannon' complete series--for only $30--and this series does have the Play All feature.

Anyway, looking forward to participating in the discussions, if I'm welcome.

Scott I. alias "Inglewolf"

H50 1.0 FOREVER, that piece of music towards the end in “A Gun for McGarrett” where Steve drives up Marni’s driveway is indeed on the original Five-O soundtrack. It’s called “The Long Wait”. I always loved it and always thought it was played in “Cocoon” when McGarrett is outside the warehouse at nighttime before he gets captured by Wo Fat and the net thrown over him. But apparently that scene doesn’t really have any music. The season 1 episode where this music does play however is “One for the Money” where Charlie gets ready to stab himself and is looking into that book and making the markings where exactly he needs to stab himself. I’m sure there must be other episodes where this music was played but I can’t remember.

Mike - excellent forum and awesome reviews! Glad that people were able to get their 2 cents in on the Blu-Ray episodes.

I just rematched Follow the White Brick Road and saw some interesting tidbits..The Navy ships used were numbered 1062 (The "Whipple";) at sea and 1057 (the "Rathburne";) in port. Both were Knox class frigates and commissioned in 1970. The Rathburne was eventually used as a target during an exercise in 2002 and the Whipple sold to Mexico, according to their Wikipedia pages. I know it's not the best source but it's a starting point if anyone would like to read further.

I'd also give "A Gun for McGarrett" 3.75/4.00 and for the same reason that Ringfire gave. It's excellent, and it is one of my favorite episodes, but Savage would have been more effective if he had been more intimidating, say as intimidating as Sig Meer was before his untimely demise.

Also like Ringfire, I very much like the music in that episode, especially a Morton Stevens composition that is heard as McGarrett drives up Marni's driveway. It appears on the 1969 LP and is also heard in one or two other episodes after its first appearance in Season 1.

What I would really like, even though it is not relevant to the Blu Ray project, is a compendium of the music by composer and by the episode(s) in which it appeared. What a time-consuming, labor-intensive project it would be! But the results would be well worth the effort.

“A Gun for McGarrett” is one of the best from season 7, so I’d give it either 3.5 or 4. How about 3.75?? That’s better! :) I’d give a perfect 4 to “A Bullet for McGarrett” as I prefer that one. Ivor Barry as Savage was a fine British villain but he’s no Eric Braeden as Dr. Paul Farrar who could really mess with your brain! Plus I love the Richard Shores score for that one.

Thanks for the Classic Hawaii Five O forum regulars and others who voted for the Classic episodes. It was a very impressive list for the Blue Ray. Hawaii Five O easily goes 100 episodes that could be considered. Some episodes in my personal Top 10 are Engaged To Be Buried, The Ninety-Second War Part I, Didn't We Meet At A Murder?,King Of The Hill, Highest Castle, Deepest Grave etc. I'm amazed how strong a Season 9 is 200 episodes into the series. Big fan of Double Exposure #200. Question Of The Day: On Mr. Mike's 4 star system, how many stars would you give A Gun For McGarrett? JC

I think what Mike is doing regarding the Blu-Ray is great, and let's just trust his process.

Imagine a Five-O Blu-Ray of "best episodes" gets released, selected by this little forum!

That would be cool all by itself.

Nitpicking elements you don't feel are "perfect" is useless and counterproductive.

I, for one, hope it comes out this year!

Not to sound cranky or anything, but I already sent my pal at CBS Home Entertainment the results of the "potential Blu-Ray episodes" poll which was really only the opinions of a dozen hard-core fans. I will mention the commercial bumpers to him in my next e-mail; I had to update links to these on my main WWW page (which weren't working) so I can show him exactly what I mean.

Now a can of worms has been opened by the issue of isolated music tracks. I already told my pal about this and he suggested it was a good idea, but it's not like he is the only decision-maker there. There are lots of people that this all has to run through, i.e., someone to determine if the prints are in good condition for a Blu-Ray remastering (seriously -- this came up during our conversation), other people to determine if the music tracks are available isolated from the dialog and sound effects, what their condition is, people from the legal department to determine what the music rights are, people from the design department, blah blah blah ... it goes on and on, there is bureaucracy at all levels! I don't want to annoy my pal by sending him stuff every couple of days because someone gets a McGarrett-like brainstorm about something else which should be included.

We don't want something like a video release connected with the show's 50th anniversary to fall into the category of "Five-O projects which drag on for years," because the 50th anniversary will only happen once, THIS YEAR!! (In fact, the 50th anniversary of the showing of Cocoon, the pilot episode, in a movie theater in Honolulu is TOMORROW!).

Some examples of Five-O projects which never got realized (yet) include a biography of Jack Lord, the publication of which has been discussed for what seems like an eternity; another biography of Lord written by some guy from Southern California which goes back an equally long time; and a video biography of Jack Lord which was announced about three years ago. This last item involved a lot of research and interviews, there was lots of enthusiasm and optimism about it, etc., etc. But I heard recently that the whole project has fallen off the cliff (I'm not going into details). Some things connected with this video bio project sound like a goddamn X-File!!

Coming soon to a bookstore near you:

https://mcfarlandbooks.com/product/jack-lord/

"Before his rise to superstardom portraying Detective Steve McGarrett on the long-running police drama Hawaii Five-O, Jack Lord was already a dedicated and versatile performer on Broadway, in film and on television.

"His range of roles included a Virginia gentleman planter in Colonial Williamsburg (The Story of a Patriot), CIA agent Felix Leiter in the first James Bond movie (Dr. No) and the title character in the cult classic rodeo TV series Stoney Burke. Lord’s career culminated in twelve seasons on Hawaii Five-O, where his creative control of the series left an indelible fingerprint on every aspect of its production.

"This book, the first to draw on Lord’s massive personal archive, gives a behind-the-scenes look into the life and work of a TV legend."

According to the publisher's web site (above), it says it will be released in the "spring 2018."

Amazon.com's site says it will be available March 1st, but elsewhere in the description, it says it won't be published until April 14th.

The book is 277 pages long.

First of all, we need to establish our aim and audience.

Is our aim to create something for us, in which case we can eliminate themes that already have been made available, or is it to create something to preserve the show, its episodes, characters, actors, music, composers, etc. for posterity?

Is our audience existing H50 fans or those who aren't familiar with the show?

Until we answer these questions, we really won't know which episodes and themes to recommend be included on a 50th Year Anniversary DVD.

I suggest we establish a committee of no more than three to answer these questions and make the final decisions for inclusion based on, but not necessarily limited to, the lists so far submitted.

“Cocoon” does indeed have a great score by Morton Stevens, a lot of which would be used over the course of the series (especially the early seasons). Some of the more memorable tracks we already have from the official Five-O soundtrack, like “The Floater”, “Call to Danger”, “The Chase”, “Interlude”. These are all from “Cocoon”. But some other great pieces are missing, like the actual Cocoon theme for when we see Hennessy and later McGarrett suspended in the Cocoon. Or when McGarrett is digging around the bowels of the U.S.S. Arcturus which leads to his discovery of the Cocoon - some fine suspenseful cues there. Or when Chin Ho is on the warehouse roof towards the end across from the ship where McGarrett is being held by Wo Fat. Or the cue that plays when McGarrett dukes it out with Miller (Andrew Duggan) at the end. Would be nice to have those.

Same with “A Thousand Pardons” - another great score. Mr. Mike has the famous cue from that episode - when McGarrett arrives at Yoko’s apartment to question her about Anna and later when Simms arrives in his Jeep at night to Yoko’s place to collect the money.

“Hookman” is easily the best score of the series! However we already have the full score. Mr. Mike already has it here on his site, broken up in multiple chunks. I even recorded all the music from the episode (using my iPhone lol) and compared with what Mr. Mike has and confirmed that he does indeed have all the music passages from the episode.

Maybe we could pick some more obscure episodes that contain great music that is not available anywhere. “I’ll Kill ‘Em Again” comes to mind because it has that great unsettling opening number when Eddie arrives in his car and then climbs up the balcony to the victim’s residence. I haven’t seen that cue anywhere. Not on Mike’s site and not anywhere on YouTube.

Richard Shores did great work on “Forty Feet High”, “And a Time to Die”, and “3,000 Crooked Miles to Honolulu” but those cues are all available both here on this site and on YouTube. However his music for “Wednesday, Ladies Free” and “Journey Out of Limbo” is not available anywhere. Both have that great Shores theremin sound - for when Tanaka paints the girls’ faces and when Danno has his flashbacks, respectively. Also “One for the Money” has a lot of creepy Shores music, some of which was first used on THE WILD WILD WEST - like that droning/buzzing mechanical sound at the beginning when Charlie enters the girl’s apartment or when he kills the woman in the garage. Or the music when he reminisces with Aunt Martha before he kills her. Also from WILD WILD WEST.

Hi Mike,

Thank you again so very much for mentioning the Isolated Music Tracks again to your friend at CBS. At this point, I would just LOVE to have the music feature on THE PILOT, A THOUSAND PARDONS- YOU’RE DEAD, and HOOKMAN. That would cover the Stevens Emmy Nomination for THE PILOT as well as the series only two Emmy Wins.

If you would, I would sincerely appreciate you forwarding this info to your friend at CBS as a follow up and thanks again!

The first season DVD of the original show has a documentary by Emme Tomimbang dating from the mid-1990s which is sort of a "history lesson." Emme did another show in 2010 which focused on the remake. Unfortunately, there is a bit too much of Boy Wonder in this show as well as a lengthy chunk about Mark Dacascos who was playing Wo Fat. On the other hand, the late Jimmy Borges as well as Al Harrington and Kimo Kahoano make an appearance. I don't think this show could be edited to include on a 50th anniversary disc.

I have mentioned the isolated music tracks to my pal at CBS Home Entertainment, he says he will look into it. But there are various levels of decision-making which have to be run through. I have updated the commercial bumpers and few other video things on my home page in the section DANNO, FIGURE OUT THE BASIC M.O. because some of the links there were not working properly, by the way.

Totally agree H50 1.0 FOREVER!! The native, island actors is what helped make H50 the classic that it is. Great scripts but also so many actors who lived in the islands gave it the authenticity. Their real life backstories add even more realism. Especially how Kam Fong worked at Pearl Harbor during the attack and being former HPD.

Yes, it should be discussed. Quality of the episodes and the music included should be paramount! Consideration should be given to the impression each makes on people who are unfamiliar with the show and the events going on at that time. For example, in the hippie / drug episodes, a narrator needs to lead into the show with an explanation of what those times were like: make love, not war, the whole bit.

Including bumpers is a great idea! An advertisement or two for the show might be included; e.g., Jack's previews ending with "Be here! Aloha!" These things are important. as well.

If possible, there should be something telling a bit about the actors who portrayed the major characters. Herman Wedemeyer was stranded on Kaua'i when the Japanese attacked O'ahu and had to remain there, helping to defend that island against potential attacks, for two weeks before he could return home. Kam Fong lost his first wife and family when a friendly plane crashed into their home during the war. The list goes on and on. These were very interesting people, aside from their characters.

Dang! Been so busy re-watching the runoff episodes that I lost track of the date and missed the voting deadline :!cry:

Really think Bells Toll at Noon deserves a spot -- strong acting all around, great attention to detail (the re-created scenes from the old movies and the film-editing equipment), innovative transitions (like the 78 record still turning at the end of the song, silently cutting to the "wave" outro for the commercial break w/o the usual "cliffhanger" music -- Great directing all around by Jack Lord!

Also would be nice to see some special features on the BRD, like the entire documentary that there are parts of, floating around youtube.

Anyway, easy solution on the cruise: Classic Five-O only, bay-bee! :!cool:

Glenn from Orlando sez "I’m sad no one has mentioned A THOUSAND PARDONS - YOU’RE DEAD."

Chicken sad too, man,that he totally overlooked this titanic ep. Like Danno sez when Mary Travers got offed "You want me to say I blew it. Alright I blew it!" Harry G's Sgt. Simms an awesome Five-O nemesis, a vicious, sadistic psychotic. Love that pool room scene with McG & The Sarge (gonna keep comin up that hill) as well as Kono Dragnettin James Hong's nervous, shaky records clerk ("I don't know - what could be wrong.";) Not to mention contender for all-time best Five-O babe, the lovely Miss Barbara Luna. Great actin and investigatin all round!

That settles it Mr. Mike – our anniversary junket can’t jus be all celebratin & carousin – we gots to be sequestered in some hotel conf room with loads a Kona coffee & malasadas debating n settlin on these top eps, brudda.

Also sad to hear bout John Nordlum. Really dug his work takin that Navy reservation beat down from awolee John Mala. Director cut that just right so you only catch a quick glimpse a that curly hair and then it morph back to Steve-O comin up that hill. John gots to have been an awesome dude for our man Jack to bestow the Merc on him. Rest in peace, brudda.

Hey Ringfire - Chicken down with the gritty Five-O. Can't tell ya how much Chicken dug da Season 4 when Ise last screened it. Highest Castle, No Bottles, 3,000 Crooked Miles, Ladies Free and Candy & a Gun be quite a line-up to open the season, man. And Two Doves ain't bad neither. Yeah, the Five was really rollin by Four, babeee!

And my votes for the ep runoff:

Just Lucky, I Guess
Painted Daisies
Deathwatch

And me & Glenn votes for “Thousand Pardons” Mister Mike! Gentleman: Any mo votes for Thousand Pardons?

Surprised no cats picked “Welcome to Our Branch Office” which was the inspiration for the current Five-Zero.

Hi Mike,

I do understand all of that. What I will say that if the theme is to be included on the Blu Rays (which I assume it will) then I would think that CBS could include some additional music. After all, the lawsuit is regarding the use of the FIVE-O theme.

Perhaps, you could just ask your friend at CBS directly if the Isolated Music is possible or not and we can clear this thing up once and for all and we can put it to rest:)

You can't really compare Five-O with The Twilight Zone, because there were at least five LPs and CDs of music from the Twilight Zone released years ago. The LPs, all of which I own, were released between 1983 and 1985, in fact. Releasing this music was likely much easier to do because there were no issues with rights, lawsuits, etc. such has plagued the release of Five-O's music. There were also isolated tracks by Jerry Goldsmith and Morton Stevens on the DVDs for the TV series Thriller, though that was not released by CBS or Paramount, but by Image Entertainment.

Like I was saying previously, CBS could at the very least include the Isolated Scores for the two Stevens Emmy Winners and the Pilot.
That would not be two much to ask for and in my opinion, add so much more value to a 50TH Anniversary Blu Ray set.

Having some episodes on Blu Ray is nice, but adding some of the very special extras like what CBS did for the TWILIGHT ZONE is what would make the set truly great:)

A couple of things; I get the strong sense that this is the final season and not just because of expiring contracts. The storylines are already giving fans closure - early in the season we saw the "future" Steve and Danno and their famalies so we already know how they all end up. Secondly, the scripts themselves seem lacklustre and even the budget seems trimmed with fewer "big" pyro-scenes. Finally, there's the actors themselves who now seem to just be wlaking through their parts. I also suspect that the "more mature" Steve McGarrett is due more to the fact that O'Laughlin's had enough of the dives, rolls and fistfights that have left him bruised and hospitalized in the past and less to do with character development. Even his new haircut is likely due to another project he completed while on hiatus. It's been a great run, though!

If we do get a confirmation about the go-ahead with the isolated music tracks then I imagine our list will change to include those episodes with the most memorable scores, not necessarily the best episodes. For instance “Forty Feet High and It Kills” or “And a Time to Die” (both by Shores) or “The Late John Louisiana” and “Ten Thousand Diamonds and a Heart” (both by Ray) or “A Thousand Pardons - You’re Dead” and “Death is a Company Policy” (both by Stevens) - these are all strong episodes yet probably not strong enough to be included in my top 24. Yet in this case I would include them because of the scores. It would be awesome if we could choose the 24 best scored episodes but I doubt they would provide an isolated music track for all 24 episodes. I guess they might agree to do it for a few, but we would have to know how many is “a few” so that we know how many to choose.

Todd, I agree. “I’ll Kill ‘Em Again” is not only one of the finest Five-O episodes but also one of the best hours of television, period! Great score by Harry Geller too! I think it’s weird that “Highest Castle” and “Full Fathom Five” and “Cry, Lie” are on the list but not this one. In fact I prefer the episode where Duke gets framed over “Cry, Lie”. Just a more elaborate and exciting episode!

In fact I think I prefer “I’ll Kill ‘Em Again” over “Draw Me a Killer”. Eddie Josephs is a more creepy and memorable villain that Arthur, who’s basically just a slob kid who’s obsessed with comics. Eddie is a more calculating and vicious criminal, very ego-driven.

I’m sad no one has mentioned A THOUSAND PARDONS - YOU’RE DEAD.

I will really be disappointed if that episode is not included and even worse, no Isolated Music Track.

Something tells me that I will be just sticking with my DVDs of the show:-(

My three:

And they Painted Daisies on His Coffin
Beautiful Screamer
The Young Assassins

If I could vote for five, I would add

The Bells Toll at Noon
Just Lucky, I Guess

It's just sad to have to eliminate such good episodes. There were so many good ones!
