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.

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!
and they grew up together

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.

It took a lot of tries, but I finally made it to Hawaii Five-0, the correct answer.

Well, Hawaii Five-0 was a Police Show, Not a Detective show. It was about the Hawaii State Police Department.

Yeah, it took me quite a few tires to get this one, too.

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!

It was Hawaii Five-0.
