Nancy Wilson was great--Did Janis Joplin watch it?
27 January 2011 | by (Hawaii) – See all my reviews

Jazz singer Nancy Wilson did a good job in this episode as a singer in need of a fix. This aired on Sept. 23rd, 1970 and (Spoiler) Janis Joplin died of a heroin overdose on Oct. 4th. I wonder if she watched it.

And the dealer is well played by Milton Selzer. (Spoiler) One thing I'd say is a goof is the McGarrett licks the heroin he suspects of being contaminated with arsenic. Gotta love these late '60s TV shows, are I didn't bother to watch the remake of this great original series.

It's interesting how Wilson's piano player goes looking for a fix, knocks out Fong and gets away with it, then tries to stop a kid from popping, and pretends to be a junkie to protect Wilson. Overall good, one of many great Hawaii Five-Os. What other series has the title become part of the lexicon: we all know what "5-0" means.
