I was really young when this show went on the air and a young adult when it went off the air, and I can say with absolute certainty that I watched every episode!
This show was way ahead of its time, back in the day when CBS knew what cutting edge was and then had the guts to actually stick with a show.
I loved the cast and the story lines were often very gutsy. Amazingly they are still mostly quite relevant today, and its a joy to watch reruns.
I am more than a bit dismayed that they intend to make a movie about this show, from a couple of perspectives:
1) you can't replace Jack Lord as "Steve McGarrett", and so, realizing this, rumour has it that, 2) the creators have dreamed up a movie that is to be the life of McGarrett's son!
Who pays these people for their bad ideas, and why don't they just go away and leave a classic to stand on its own??!! There is, and will only ever be, one Hawaii Five-0. Period.
