Book ’em, Danno

Do you like 50 year old cop shows? Sure, we all do. Okay, I do. And I’m going to talk about it.

Hawaii Five-O aired from 1968 to 1980, spawned a 1997 TV movie in an attempt to continue the series, and was successfully rebooted in 2010. As with most of my favorites, I found this show through daytime reruns and fell in love with it for all of the wrong reasons. And I’ll tell you all about them as we journey through the show episode by episode. I’ll talk about what’s great, what’s fun, what’s good, what’s not so good, and what’s downright unfortunate.

280 episodes against my commitment issues and laziness. What could go wrong?
