Samurai - S1-E6

Factual error: Throughout this episode, the Japanese assassins are inaccurately referred to as "the Bushido." They should, as the episode title implies, be called Samurai. Bushido was the revered code by which Samurai warriors lived, but was never an appellation for them.

Tiger By The Tail - S1-E5

Factual error: McGarrett places the kidnappers' ransom tape on the reel-to-reel recorder, and before the tape is threaded or the machine properly turned on, the message immediately starts to play.

The Face of the Dragon - S1-E17

Factual error: Two deaths by bubonic plague, spread by casual human contact, have Five-O scrambling to prevent an epidemic on Oahu. But the disease isn't spread this way (its vector is fleas on infected rats). And since the introduction of antibiotics in the 1940s, bubonic plague has been imminently curable, so there was no need for panic, other than, of course, to make the episode more dramatic.

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.
