Trivia

This episode was remade exactly 50 years later as the Season 9 season opener of the new Hawaii 5-0 series. Alex O'Loughlin was placed in the sensory deprivation chamber, the same way that Jack Lord had been. See more »

Goofs

When McGarrett is being followed by the same sedan, he calls for a HPD ambush on the police radio, but he never takes his thumb off the talk button, even when dispatch is replying. Since radios are one way devices, it is necessary to release the talk button in order to hear the other party. See more »

The movie that started it all!
15 August 2003 | by wlmlblSee all my reviews

This is the one that began a series that lasted 12 years! Probably one of the best cop shows of all time! McGarett is a tough as nails cop on an elite state police force answerable only to the governor. He is stumped when one of his best friends turns up dead. As is turns out a Red Chinese agent named Wo Fat is using a device to procure information from U.S. agents. Wo Fat became one of McGarett's arch enemies throughout the run of the series. It should be noted that Danny Williams was played by an unknown actor named Tim O'Kelly. He was replaced in the series by James McArthur. The other regulars who went on to star in the series are Zulu and Kam Fong.
