How has Hawaii Five-O not stood up well?
I'm currently watching old re-runs of the show, and they're not too bad.
I remember being an avid viewer in the 1970s, but now, in my opinion, the acting seems a bit stilted in todays eyes. For it's time though it was good.
Also, in light of how current police shows are handled, the realism is very different and how the characters behave.
What many don't know is that:
Freeman offered Richard Boone the part of McGarrett, but Boone turned it down; Gregory Peck and Robert Brown were also considered for the part.
