Hawaii Five-O originally ran on CBS from September, 1968 through April of 1980. Therefore, it’s one of the quintessential 1970s shows – having aired new episodes across the entire decade.
The police drama focuses on Lieutenant Steve McGarrett, played by Jack Lord, who runs a special police task force in Honolulu, Hawaii. Episodes often ended with McGarrett’s catch phrase “Book ‘em, Danno.”
Hawaii Five-O co-stars included; James MacArthur (Dan Williams aka “Danno”), Kam Fong (Chin Ho), Herman Wedemeyer (Duke), Al Harrington (Ben), Harry Endo (Che Fong), Richard Denning (Governor Jameson) and Zulu (Kono).
