  • The first episode produced for the series...it's not perfect but if you overlook it's flaws it's not bad either.

    • This was the first episode of the regular series to be produced, although it was not the first episode broadcast.

    • The official syndication number for this episode is 6804.

    • Ricardo Montalban plays a Japanese gangster in this episode, even though he is of Mexican heritage.

    Trivia (3)

    • In the first courtroom scene, the attorney general (Morgan White) mistakenly refers to Tokura as Tokuru.

    • The license plate number on McGarrett's car is F6-3958.

    • McGarrett and Chin Ho use the word "bushido" incorrectly in this episode. According to the American Heritage Dictionary, the word is a noun meaning "The traditional code of the Japanese samurai, stressing honor, self-discipline, bravery, and simple living." McGarrett refers to individual modern-day samurai as bushido, when the word should only be used to refer to the code that the samurai follow.
