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

Following the death of Leonard Freeman in 1974, Jack Lord stepped into Freeman's shoes and ran most of the production for the remainder of the series, although he was never credited on-screen as a producer. This was by agreement from 1974-1980, in exchange for Lord's shared ownership, with the Freeman estate, of episodes produced between Freeman's January 1974 death and the end of the series in 1980. Prior to this agreement, Lord nearly walked off the series in 1974, after a dispute with CBS. See more »

Can't believe I am the first one to put in some comments on this show! Great show! Loved the cast, the action, the scenery, one of my biggest childhood TV memories is watching the big wave curl over the name of the show. (McGarrett always looked like Elvis, by the way, didn't he? They were pals, if you didn't know..) I felt bad when Jack Lord died a couple years ago, he was much older than I would have guessed...77 was it?
Anyways, one of the better, more durable shows of the era, kind of think of Kojak or Cannon whenever this comes to mind; I hope to see it in reruns again sometime.
