Tikiton... Close. They're a band from my hometown, Edmonton, and they're called 'Steve McGarrett's Hair'.

But 'Jack Lord's Hair' has a certain ring to it too.

Check out this cover of Hawaii 5-0

I agree on MAD MEN... They should have a segment set in modern times -- 45 years later -- showing them as a bunch of tired, old, emphysemic alcoholics...

My 1967 Mercury Monterey:

The 1968 Mercury Park Lane that Jack Lord drove on the show:

Pretty close, huh?
Here's a link to a pretty cool story that I found shortly after I bought the car, about how a fan tracked the original car down and restored it to its former glory.

Make sure you click on picture #5 to see the license plate!

Wow, clever song! I would like to hear it as a big band swing arrangement with additional lyrics...hmmm.

Jack Lord's Hair was a punk band in the late 80's early 90's based in Lancaster, PA.

Love the Mercury. It was a car capable of containing the coiffure.

I recently saw a suit jacket owned by Jack Lord was auctioned on E-bay. That would be cool to own.

Wow! Coincidence? Steve McGarrett's Hair was around in the early 1980's, along with another Edmonton group, SNFU. They no longer are...

That song is from a modern group from California.

I agree...Erichtroudt and Mongoloid, timing is everything. I am thrilled to have my 5.0 DVDs...that is as close to a remake as I may get. I have an open mind though and might see how it goes...but in my opinion there will never be another Jack Lord, those great sets, or that fabulous music.

Steve McGarrett's Hair was great.

Aloha,

Ok, First off, let me just point out a few reasons.

1/ Good for Hawaii. Tax dollars from a major project like this will be boon for Hawaii. Good for the State means more money in and better exposure in a winter environment in Decemeber.

2/ Good for tiki because they will document todays Islands and create exotic sets to romanticise the islands. This will help places like "La Mariana" and "Tiki's" (which will be rented as sets. In future, it'll be as exciting as this will also have a good effect for artists to sell more Tiki.

3/ Hawaii is in a bad period of tourism and when It's harder (More expensive) to GO to Hawaii, TV shows about Hawaii do very well ratings wise. It's an elusive port 'o call, and this can only help the Islands.

Advice for the film makers and CBS.

1/ Set it in 1952 Hawaii and make it a raw crime drama style along the lines of the "Shield" set it in Paradise.

Show the Corruption. Show the GREED. Show Murder. Show white slavery and more ills. Show the utter contempt of LAW. Show the backroom deals. Show what made these islands Exotic. I swear if I get that stuff Every week, and I will watch.

I want to see my forbidden glimpses of Strip clubs, Chinatown Opium dens, Illegal Casinos and Tiki bars of 1950's Paradise.

And then the creation of the 5-0 force. Make them so buzy cleaning up the islands, nothing else matters and the criminal element will have no choice but to fight.

2/ Screw the idea about McGarret's son and just have the BALLZ to recast the Steve and the rest of the cast. Me, I'd cast Duane "the ROCK" Johnson as Steve. Let him rock the doo, bro. That way, you'd also create this massive Media FRENZY in Hawaii every week.

3/ Give me rich Characters and a good ongoing story and I will watch.

Oh and hire "Agent Orange" to do the new 5-0-V-2 Theme and gain a huge rating, and less flame online.

best to you all.

Once, when Jack Lord found out someone had been smoking in the 5-0 Mercury, he had it taken to a local shop and the entire interior cleaned and the upholstery was torn out and replaced.

You didn't mess with Jack on set. I watched him mercilously tear down an actress in front of God and everybody while directing an episode, standing atop a large ladder while using a bull horn because she blew her line.

Otherwise, a pretty cool dude!

And pretty generous, if all the reports were true. I'd be inclined to forgive his impatience with actors, and all those Hollywood types.

The Mercury story is cool in an Obsessive/Compulsive kind of way.

Thank you.

I always tried my best. It was not easy to keep up the pompadour and the stoic persona while surrounded by Island babes.

I'm just afraid they won't bring back Wo Fat (or, more likely, his son) as the Commie Chinese Arch Villain -- too non-PC. I just hope it won't end up like the Sci Fi Channel's Flash Gordon of last season, with a Dr. Zarkov who was a goofy, clumsy comedy sidekick (in the original he was the smart one who came up with all the cool weapons and fought at Flash's side), and an Emperor Ming who was played by a milquetoast caucasian Canadian actor (I'm not knocking Canadian actors in general, Edmonton; Christopher Plummer was splendid as a Klingon Warlord). When I went online to find out what was going on after the new Flash series was announced, they said they deliberately picked a boring white guy to play Ming because it wouldn't have been politically correct to make him Asian.
