Season 8 generally

Plot hole: 8-22 "Love Thy Neighbor, Take His Wife": The police cars speed to Tanaka's house with their sirens screaming, warning him in plenty of time to allow him to escape. Apparently these guys never heard of the law-enforcement standard "silent approach."

Trivia: Danno was played by Tim O'Kelley in the 5-0 pilot. But a NY test audience told CBS they didn't buy him as a serious cop because he was too much of a "smart-cracking, Jimmy-Olsen-type gee-whiz kid." Leonard Freeman took the criticism to heart, and recast the part with James MacArthur for the series.

Trivia: Throughout the first two seasons, both McGarrett and Danno often referred to "Chief Dann of HPD." This was a thank-you to CBS programming chief Mike Dann, who helped first persuade the network to put Hawaii Five-0 on the air, and also got it a better time slot later on.

F.O.B. Honolulu (1) - S3-E18

Trivia: Roger C. Carmel, best known as Star Trek's Harry Mudd, played KGB agent Misha Toptegan in this episode. But his end credit lists the character as "Misha the Bear." This was a joking reference to Carmel's years as the voice of Smokey the Bear in hundreds of public service announcements throughout the 1960s.

Show generally

New this month Question: Does anyone know why Zulu, who played Kono, left the show?

Cathyrid

New this month Answer: He was fired. He never really appreciated his character. He felt Kono was portrayed as a big dumb Hawaiian and that the stereotype was racist. He also felt underutilized. He was fired after a heated argument with the show's publicist regarding his character. It seems there's not much details given regarding the incident or the firing, so it's seems possible he upset the show's producers as well.
