The HPD lab technician "Charlie Fong", introduced late in season one, is based on the character "Che Fong" on Hawaii Five-O (1968). This also holds true with Lori Weston (introduced in season two), named similarly to Sharon Farrell
's character (Lori Wilson) during season twelve of Hawaii Five-O (1968), and Max Bergman (introduced in season one, recurring in season two, but with on-screen credit for every episode in season two of this show), who was based on the character of Doc Bergman, as played by Al Eben
on Hawaii Five-O (1968), although he was sometimes simply credited as either "Doc" or "Coroner" in fifty-one episodes, beginning with the fourth season, and he also portrayed three other characters before the fourth season, two of those were also doctors. See more
