Premise: Book 'em, Danno. This is one of the longest-running crime dramas in TV history, memorable for its great scenery, sun-burst theme by the Ventures, and Jack Lord's iconic, no-nonsense McGarrett, with his stiff, macho haircut. The series chronicles an elite four-man state-police unit that probes `felonies of every type,' with stories firmly planted in the forget-the-personal-stuff-and-just-get-the-bad-guys motif. The biggest baddie, McGarrett's archenemy, Wo Fat, was caught in 1980.
