Book 'em, Danno!

We recently struck gold at The Stewart house. It turns out that episodes of Hawaii 5-0 air everyday at 1pm on local Channel 15! Stew and I could not be happier. Claire, on the other hand, seems to be disinterested since 1pm is smack dab in the middle of her post-lunch nap. Oh well... her loss. So, we now get to watch Jack Lord as Steve McGarrett, head of an elite state police unit investigating organized crime, murder, assassination attempts, foreign agents, and felonies of every type. And where else on television can you see Kam Fong as Chin Ho? This guy is brilliant, and you might be surprised to learn that he never won an Emmy or even a Golden Globe. Not once! The series was also famous for the stellar guest actors who appeared in episodes, including Ricardo Montalban (prior to his role as Mr. Rourke on Fantasy Island) and Leslie Nielsen (in a serious role... weird). McGarrett's nemesis, the evil Wo Fat — a Red Chinese agent in charge of the entire Pacific Asiatic Theatre — looks a lot like our Asian mail carrier, so I can really relate to the McGarrett character. Anytime Wo Fat appears on screen, I instinctively begin to growl. It drives Stew nuts, but what can I do? So, if we are to enjoy yet another episode of 5-0 today, then I'll need to sign off and get crackin' on some chores. We've decided today would be a good day to dust the entire house. Best estimates puts its last dusting at February 23, 1985. Yikes...
