Five-0 was a special state police unit answering only to the Governor of Hawaii. It worked with Honolulu police to fight the underworld in the island state. Sooner or later virtually all the bad guys heard Steve McGarrett grunt "Book 'em, Danno!" though chief bad guy Wo Fat was caught after MacArthur left the series.Written by

In the opening title sequence, a hand loads a .38 snub nosed revolver, then spins the cartridge. The gun is loaded with bullets that have already been fired. The depression where the firing pin strikes the cartridge is clearly visible on all of the shells loaded. See more »
This show lasted for many seasons because of the talents of Jack Lord and great writing, but I think it helped that it was on CBS as well. CBS always seemed to stand behind it's shows longer, even after ratings begin to drop. Perhaps my memory is wrong, but didn't the show end because Jack Lord wanted it to instead of it being cancelled? There are many memorable episodes of course, but the one that always stands out in my mind was the episode with singer Nancy Wilson as the heroin addicted performer. I thought she did a great job! Hopefully the show will come out in a DVD set. I hope the show will always be in reruns somewhere at least!
