Hawaii Five-O is an American television series produced by CBS Productions, and set in Hawaii. The show originally aired for twelve seasons from 1968 to 1980, and continued in reruns. The show features a fictional state police unit run by Detective Steve McGarrett, played by actor Jack Lord in the original series, and Alex O'Loughlin in the modern remake. The modern remake started airing in 2010, using the original character names and theme music. The original theme music made by Morton Stevens and started to be really popular. Most fans remember the common episode-ending line, which was usually some variation of McGarrett instructing his subordinate to "Book 'em, Danno" sometimes specifying a charge such as "murder one." Steve had a happy childhood and enjoyed spending time in the garage watching his father fix the his 1974 Mercury Marquis. A star quarterback, he attended Kukui High School when his mother Doris was murdered in a staged car accident in April 1992 when Steve was fifteen. This prompted his father John to send him and his little sister Mary away to the mainland for their own safety. Mary went to live with John's older sister Debora, and Steve was sent to the Army and Navy Academy in California for his junior and senior years. This led to a decade-long period of estrangement between John and his children, as Steve and was in BUD/S in 2000. In the Season 6 episode Ka Pohaku Kihi Pa'a / The Solid Cornerstone, Steve admitted that he deeply regretted not patching things up with his father when he had the chance to.
