How well I remember the Five-0 of old, the golden years 1968 through 1980. In 1968 the state's first McDonald's opened in Aina Haina (I know I was there) and Hawaii Five-0 began a 12-year stint that September. How crazy was it when McGarrett would radio that he was traveling on Kalakaua when clearly he was out by Sandy Beach! We locals always had a great chuckle over things like that!
So good luck to the new cast and crew of Hawaii Five-0, you have pretty bigs shoes to fill but the buzz and excitement of your return is palpable. Imua!, and you know I have to say this...Book 'em Danno!
And here is a glossary of words and phrases you may not be familiar with in the post:
- Chicken skin: local equivalent of goose bumps
- Hawaii No Ka Oi: means number one or the best
- Kalakaua: the main drag in Waikiki named after the Hawaiian monarch King David Kalakaua
- Imua: to go forward
