Casting

.Freeman offered Richard Boone the part of McGarrett, although he turned it down;[9] Gregory Peck[10] and Robert Brown[11] were also considered.^ He was turned down, because his face was "too lived in" to play the part a man who has not yet experienced the world.

Suppressed episode

The second season episode "Bored She Hung Herself" has not been broadcast since its original airing in 1970 and is not included in the second season DVD box set, released on July 31, 2007. According to Mrs. Leonard Freeman (wife of the late creator of the show), speaking to some fans at the 1996 Five-O convention, someone tried the hanging technique depicted in the show (supposedly yoga-related, but more like autoerotic asphyxiation) and killed himself. As a result, the show was not rebroadcast and never included in any syndication packages.[20]
