Sam McCloud is a Marshal from Taos, New Mexico, who takes a temporary assignment in the New York City Police Department. His keen sense of detail and detecting subtle clues, learned from his experience, enable him to nab unsuspecting criminals despite his unbelieving boss.
A wealthy mystery man named Charlie runs a detective agency via a speakerphone and his personal assistant, John Bosley. His detectives are three beautiful women, who end up in a variety of difficult situations.
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

In the first season, the closing credits showed a police motorcycle racing through Waikiki. From the second season on, it show the famous outrigger canoe being paddled off Diamond Head. See more »
In the now-famous scene from the opening credits, Jack Lord is shown from a helicopter shot on a balcony atop the Ilikai Hotel, then turns to the interior of the suite. The scene cuts to an interior shot making it appear that he turns directly from the balcony to face the camera after the cut. Actually, based on the scenery behind him, the interior shot had to have been made in a suite on the opposite side of the hotel. See more »
I remember watching the old reruns on this show on the Family Channel. I wish they would bring it back, I miss this show! Jack Lord was so awesome as Det. Steve McGarrett! James MacArthur was cool, too!
I'm still a devoted fan to this show, and I was very sad to hear about Jack Lord's death. He was 77 when he died. I've always been a fan of the police-detective genre in TV and in movies, but none can ever hold a candle to Jack Lord and the rest of the crew on Hawaii Five-0!
No wonder this show was so popular! The beautiful scenery, the action, suspense, romance, and all the wonderful adventures McGarrett and Danno had together. This was one of the longest running police detective shows in history! It's way better than those violent & gory action series, and better than anything sci-fi. Also it's better than all those silly sitcoms they have out today! Bring this show back to syndicated network television again!!!!! Jack Lord, you will be missed!!!!!
