Hawaii Five-O (1968)

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

Cathyrid

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.

Question: Why is the lighting set so low in the lab? Any lab should be well lit and in government buildings it is normally florescent. How can they see to do any detailed work?

Cathyrid

Answer: This is a TV show, and most likely the goal is to create a set design with effective lighting for a more pleasing visual quality for viewers rather than reproducing a drab-looking lab with harsh florescent lights.

Question: Do any of the kitchens (with the exception of the Wolowitz home) have a dishwasher? I know it's a picky question but it just seems strange.

Cathyrid

Chosen answer: They may be behind or built into the counters where we can't see via the Fourth Wall. Not all apartment buildings offer a dishwasher as a standard feature, though.
