Hawaii Five O Seasons 1-5 are simply superb. There aren't too many people in my generation who were not glued to the family TV at 7:30pm on Tuesdays of regular season TV. It's hard to describe what this show did in Hawaii; however at 7:30pm each Tuesday the city of Honolulu stopped and people were glued to their sets at home, shopping, or in a retail store with a TV. The show was shot on location, used many local walkons and featured local actors/personalities/celebs. The first 5 seasons were especially good in that the show was written by innovators and not imitators. It lasted an amazing 12 seasons in a highly competitive and forever changing market. The actors were all immortalized and idolized after the show was taken off the air. The Jack Lord family gave their $40 million estate to the state of Hawaii for philanthropic use. Guaranteed to keep you guessing, laughing and booking your next flight to Hawaii. Remember Che Fong was doing science 30 years before CSI, Cold Case Files, Forensic Files, etc! The phrase "Book'em Dano" is used fluidly in most Police Departments throughout this country.

Great cover, but I wonder if they'll put Doug
Mossman on the Seventh season cover since he
was in more episodes, by a whisker then than
the (then) fired Al Harrington?! Season six
has some of the very best episodes and some
of my favourites of the 12 year series as well,

such as: Hookman, and of course: 30,000 Rooms
and I have a Key. Pick Up On It! - R.A.S

Season six has lots of stories involving serial killers, psychopaths, rather than the previous season's array of organized crime figures. Organized crime relies heavily on bribery, blackmail and murder to avoid authorities. The psychotic criminal is more concerned with some personal motive rather than a quick profit. The same crime often nearly identical is repeated until with little or no concern for any existence of others as though the villain were isolated in some other world. The problem is that the viewers know the specifics of the crime and it is sometimes difficult to wait for the police to gather evidence.

Hookman
This episode is a personal favorite and according to the web also a favorite of many fans. The story is of a cop killer with artificial hands out for revenge against those he blames for his handicap. His "handicap" works to his advantage at first as he leaves no finger prints. His own personal trademark gives him away. This episode features some above average car chases and shootouts.

Draw Me A Killer
In keeping with the tradition of serial killers, this one seems to be unaware or indifferent that anything outside of his own little world exists as he stalks victims in public places, like the courthouse. The profile reads: loner, uneducated, works in menial labor jobs, lacks a father figure, rebels against authority figures (such as cops and parents) lacks self-confidence especially around women so naturally he kills people to build self-esteem.
The killer sees himself as the guardian of comic strip character Judy Moon and when he`s not killing for her, spends his spare time talking to her. (No social life?) The victims resemble those in the comic which are out to get Judy.

Hawaii-Five-O has stood the test of time and still resonates after 40 years. The producers decided to film it at what was considered a much faster pace than the other shows of the time. As a result, we can watch it without losing interest. The writing and acting were always good, if not great.

As to police reality, no show reflects that work because (don't tell anyone) it's mostly legwork and boring research. Very few gunfights and car chases result from investigations, Hollywood and CSI notwithstanding.

So, forgive McGarrett(Jack Lord) for wearing immaculate Brooks Brothers' suits in 90F weather and at a policeman's salary. It's television.

This, the 6th season, was arguably the best one and my recommendation for your 1st experience of the show if you never watched. The variety and quality of this season (see another reviewer for a show-by-show description)was the zenith of the series. Like most shows, the middle season/seasons are the best and this one was right in the middle of the twelve year run.

Nothing lasts 12 years without having something going for it. In the case of Hawaii Five-O, it easy to dismiss it as a typically television crime drama that got lucky by finding its audience and keeping it. The same could be said for Law and Order. Except, in television years, luck usually runs out after two or three years. Gimmicks get old, the formula is figured out, and sharks are jumped so often they don't even complain.

But shows that last five years, much less 12, have to have something besides luck, gimmicks, and great scheduling. Hawaii Five-O had a number of things going for it. First of all, let's be honest. The setting was, and still is so lush and exotic that it is easily intoxicating. Hawaii is beautiful, and most people either live there or want to live there. Filming on location has always been a blessing when it's been done, and probably no more so than on this series.

Next, Jack Lord, playing Five-O chief Steve McGarrett, was one of a long line of no-nonsense law enforcement figures. The strength, integrity, and dedication of these kinds of characters cannot be overstated, and these characters will always have lots of fans rooting them on, not unlike Law and Order's Jack McCoy.

Finally, watching shows like this is always a treat because you see so many stars that were either big stars enjoying a working Hawaiian vacation, or lots of up and coming stars before they got their big break. Hawaii Five-O was a natural draw for both categories, and it's fun to watch them and remember when.

It's also fun to remember when you could look forward to hearing one of the best and most recognizable theme songs in television history. Not a small thing when you add it with the other factors. Hawaii Five-O had a lot going for it then, and it has a lot going for it now.
