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

Remember it is the late 1960. Here is a series that dares to respect the native people of a US state. While some regard Jack Lords acting style as wooden it is solid as a rock. He is the anchor of the series. The respect McGarrett shows for his team and the people of Hawaii comes through in almost every episode. As can be expected with any series that lasts this long, there are a few standard cop scripts, but kick back and look at the scenery in those. Catch the better ones- anything with Vashon, Wo Fat, etc., etc. If you are willing to realize this was a long time ago and there are some things that are VERY different these days (for the worse in most cases) open up and fall in love with one of the best series ever. Just look at the opening credits (the first music Video?) and go back to simpler times.......
