Need the answer to a trivia question. Can you tell me where Steve McGarrett got his hair cut? Would greatly appreciate any help with this. (Using the search engine on the Five-O Home Page and entering the word "haircut", you can find that Steve got his hair cut at The Hair House (at least in episode #210, Blood Money is Hard to Wash) -- MQ)

I am impressed with the time and effort put in to maintaining the 5-0 site, so much so that i made it my startup page! I have been a fan of Five-0 since I was 7 years old and I even own a Hawaii 5-0 baseball cap that has McGarret on the front the wave on the sides and "BOOK EM DANNO" across the back, recently I was at a Houston Astros game and Pitcher Sid Fernandez
who hails from Hawaii came over to check it and then signed it being a fan of the show himself! Does anyone out there know where i can obtain more of these hats licensed by cbs? it was given to me as a gift and any info on the whereabouts of any more of these hats I am sure fellow 5-0 fans would appreciate owning one please e-mail any leads all you "BRUDDA'S" to me or mike

I've been a Hawaii Five-O fan since the show aired in 1968. My license plate on my car is even HI FIVE O which I have had since 1976. I hope and pray that the new show has the same good writers and director that the old show had. Your WEB page is great. When will Five-O hit the silver screen?

Fantastic home page. I really enjoyed the article by James MacArthur. Too bad with everyone out there, no one seems to be able to get any info on Jack Lord. Thanks to the Family Channel I'm taping every week night.

Great site. Just out of interest, did you manage to procure any recent photographs of Jack Lord, such as the one that appeared in the National Enquirer a few years ago? It would be nice if you could post some recent pictures up. (I have the last issue of the "National Perspirer" which featured these pictures (allegedly taken a few years before the article was published), but no scanner! - MQ) Also, are there any relatives of Jack Lord out there?

Love the webpage! I am a HUGE fan of Hawaii-Five-O. I have seen every episode (including the pilot). I am a bigger fan than Star Trek. Now that's saying something! I have one nit to add...In Samurai, McGarrett chews out Danno for "blowing it." Funny, in "A Thousand Pardons...You're Dead," Danno tells McGarrett he "blew it," and McGarrett says, "Easy, Danno. That isn't going to solve anything!" Boy, talk about your double standards! Thanks, Brian

An impressive site, and its author/proprietor is always looking for ways to tweak and improve it. Probably the standard for pages of its kind. Also, did anybody notice that TV Guide did NOT list any Five-O episodes in its list of the 100 best TV episodes of all time? (A major oversight, in my opinion - MQ)

I noticed a goof in the 24 Karat Kill you did not mention. When McGarrett races off in his car to the first murder scene at the Docks, he leaves in a two door car, he arrives at the scene in a four door car. Now THAT'S a goof. (This goof is quite common, since they are using footage from the pilot episode. I will take another look at this show again soon. - MQ)

Hawaii Five-O is one of the best TV shows out there. I first began watching it because I'm a James Bond addict and I was so impressed by Jack Lord's performance in "Dr. No." Now I'm hooked on Five-O, too! All the Bond references on the shows make it all the more fun for me to watch. This website is really rockin'. And aloha, baby, to the enlightened person who commented on Jack Lord's fantastic Felix in "Dr. No" - wasn't he simply the best?

I really enjoy Hawaii Five-O and I really like this website you have here. I have been trying to see a Hawaii Five-O website, and finally there is one. Anyways, i would like to know if you can put a few downloaded pics of Jack Lord in here? (Check out Todd's site for several pictures of Jack Lord. - MQ)
A HUGE Five-O Fan!!

What a great site! Five-O was just a pleasant memory for so many years, and now we have the show itself (albeit edited) on the Family Channel, and an outstanding website to match! I love the detailed plot descriptions and have been printing them out for reference while watching the show. By the way, has anyone noticed that the show carries a "G" rating? Even though it's a fairly violent show in many episodes, the violence is pretty "sanitized." I remember watching a show last week in which the villain was shot up by at least six policemen, some of whom were blazing away with shotguns. Not a scratch on him, of course -- he just fell down and died. Nowadays, the blood would have been flying! Ah, the innocence of the late 60s. Nice to have it back, if only for an hour a night.

Great site. Thanks for all the hard work you must have put in for this one. I love reading your reviews and then watching the episode. Especially easy now the the Family Channel has cleaned up and is running the episode in order. Well, almost -- some are not there. But good enough for me. I used to live in Hawaii and this is my only link to it. Fun to see the old site. Thanks again.

This is a great page my friend. It educates and reminds us of the great 5-0. Keep up the good work.
Mobile, AL USA - Monday, June 23, 1997 at 19:17:44 (PDT)
This web site is an example of the Internet at its best -- information without commercialization. Great job, Mike! I've been a Five-O fan since 1985 and I'm glad that Five-O is available on cable -- to me, a Five-O played at a faster speed and with cut out footage is better than no Five-O at all!

After reading James MacArthur's article on the new Hawaii Five-O pilot I have the following thought: Governor Williams would have to make a phone call to the mainland for President McGarrett. Cool twist, eh.
Dillsburg, PA USA - Monday, June 23, 1997 at 08:45:33 (PDT)
I found this site when the Family Channel starting airing 5-0 after Memorial Day. (My husband is from Ecuador and remembers seeing many of the episodes in Spanish). What a great web site - the plot descriptions are a scream! We are big fans of Kono - especially when he bulldozes down a door or beats up two or three guys with one hand! Thanks for a great page! I am delighted to see the new stuff. Can't wait to see the new pilot episode!

I have been a fan of Hawaii Five-O since I was four, and having The Family Channel airing the digitally remastered episodes will bridge the gap for the younger kids that now watch Hawaii Five-O. I actually liked the car McGarrett drove, which was a 1968 Mercury Park Lane, and a lot of Five-O fans would like to add this car to their collection. There is a web page for auto fanatics that watch Hawaii Five-O, in which there are other cars besides the Ford vehicles that were provided for the show. I even referenced the Chevrolet vehicles used, and have watched the episodes that aired on TFC. Jack Lord might be a recluse like Greta Garbo, but a lot of people have seen his acting style, in which he showed a charismatic point of view in which McGarrett is a professional. Every Five-O fan should see Dr. No, the first James Bond movie, in which Jack Lord played a more professional Felix Leiter, which was more realistic. I think that Hawaii Five-O should be made into a movie, and who should play McGarrett? Some say Lee Majors or James Brolin, but I think that McGarrett should be played by an actor that is charismatic. Should David Hasselhoff of Baywatch fame be a candidate?

It's great! It's wonderful that "Hawaii Five-O" is today alive, after 30 years. And this is due to the fans and the webs like this which informs us always about the past and the present of the series. Thank you Mike for your effort, for your devotion to "Hawaii FIVE-O", for your "Book'em Danno!". A big ALOHA from Michelle & Eugen

My favorite site on the web, especially the plot synopses. I hope you will add more articles like "The Jack Lord Nobody Knows," that was particularly interesting.
Nanticoke, PA USA - Friday, June 20, 1997 at 12:37:02 (PDT)
I am glad there are still followers. Someone should tell Jack Lord that a single appearance, interview, or photo, would last a lifetime for some of us. We don't have to be best friends, but 5 minutes of his time would be nice. If he is ill or suffering, a few smiling fans may help.
Farmingdale, NY USA - Friday, June 20, 1997 at 05:58:10 (PDT)
Great Web Site! Really enjoy reading about the show and actors again. Wish we could get a more recent picture of Jack Lord. Too bad he's a recluse. Anyway, great job especially enjoy your plot synopsis. Keep up the great work.
