You picked the right one!
Correct! Well done! This hip, Hawaiian detective show kicked off in 1968… and aired its final episode on April 5, 1980. A dozen seasons! That's a lot of booking, Danno!

I went through the entire list, after 4 incorrect answers, I just picked at random to see how long they ran.

Took me twice but I got it right.

Bingo!
Though it still surprises me as I do not remember one episode for the late 1970s of a show I use to watch every week.

Yeah, I knew the answer before I even looked at the choices. Loved that show.

I got it pretty quickly - I have always been a big fan of the original Hawaii Five-O.

Me too. In fact I'm watching season 6 on DVD now. There was one episode that had Pat Morita, Gregory Sierra and Ron Glass in the same episode. I didn't recognize Ron Glass until I saw his name in the end credits and went back to review it. He was killed off in the episode pretty quickly whereas Gregory Sierra lasted until the end. Perry King was also in one.

Such a great show. Supposedly the new one is good as well, though I've never seen it. Jack Lord was all it...

That was back when Adults were in charge.

I knew it right away without having to read the choices. I remember it from the late '60s and when it was cancelled in 1980. The theme was a hit record after the show premiered in '68.

I knew where they were going right away.
Surprisingly very few shows survived the 60s and 70s into the 80s.

We need the original Hawaii Five-0 back on Me-TV! The remake is not the same. It would have been much better if the remake characters were Steve McGarrett JUNIOR and Danny Williams JUNIOR.
Absolutely agree!

The original H5O rules the CBS' airwaves from 1968 to 1980 and the definitely made a comeback in the 2010's!

Always Hawaii Five-0 (or HF0) with a zero. Both versions.

I remember McGarrett doing the Geezer Amble as the show concluded.

I got it right on the first try! I remembered that, until the original "Law & Order" came along, "H50" was the longest-running cop show in TV history.

I couldnt miss it. My dad would roll over in his grave. It's the one reason why I am a fan favorite of the rebooted "Hawaii 5-0"

What show had an original episode, with the original character and actor, in the 1960s, 1970s, 19980s, 1990s, and 2000s? Hint: The name of his dog, was dog.

Actually, I forgot about him, but you are right....to an extend....Columbo ended in the 90s, not 80s....but did BEGIN in the 60s.
