Great explosions list Mr. Mike. You have 2 of my FAVS the glowing effect in the bathroom in Anybody Can Build A Bomb and the explosions in Uncle Kevin Dies. An underrated one was the bombing in Shake Hands With The Man On The Moon. You got When Does A War End? on your list too. The lame one by the cannery and the bigger one later. You are right Mr. Mike. Don't see how anybody was injured overlooking the pier. The Cannery appeared to be in the middle of a parking lot. JC

Death with Father has my favorite explosion. It rocks the camera and McGarrett's shock and reaction--and Jack Lord's direction--make it all great.

"No, pop; you're coming with me."

You right on Death With Father. That was a mushroom cloud explosion. What a scene! Never saw it coming. One of the last explosions was in Flight Of The Jewels. They send that little plane into the building. Puts a hole in it. Also, the end of episode, they send the model plane in front of the escaping car. Truck yells, "What a blast!" JC

I just remembered an explosion in A Death In The Family. That 1 goon pretends to be a worker. He places the bomb in the restaurant of the informant. Blows up! I guess that goes on the dead list. JC
