Just to mess with the heads of a lot of my pals....

A lot of my flist are totally in love with Hawai'i Five O. I haven't seen it in a while, but I find it very enjoyable, and like very much that they updated but stayed true to one of the great opening credit sequences in the history of television.

But many of my Steve-and-Danny-lovin' flisties haven't seen the original series, so I thought you guys might find this fun.

I had memories of this episode floating in my head for decades -- since it originally aired -- and I saw it repeated the yesterday on my local "ME-TV" ("Memorable Entertainment Television," apparently) affiliate, and was surprised how relatively well it held up. (Wednesday's episode depended entirely on Steve McGarrett being a moron.)

So, here you are, my friends: Jack Lord and James MacArthur as Steve McGarrett and Danno Williams in:

Hawai'i Five-O: "Draw Me a Killer"

(If I did this right, the episode will show in two parts, one after the other.)

Okay, I'm like 8 minutes in, and here's what I'm thinking:

1) is that charles martin smith? king of the sadsack psychopaths?

2) like we needed any more arguments against racist depictions of comic book villains

3) i always thought danno was so cute, but wooden just doesn't even begin to describe the acting here, does it?
