Ah, the Days of Five-O...

Lee Cataluna waxes nostalgic about house-free Honolulu hills and white polyester in her Friday Advertiser column on "Hawaii Five-O."

Comparing the CBS classic to current hit "Lost," Cataluna says, "'Lost' is a very good show and a very popular show, but it doesn't really compare. They're in Hawai'i, but they're not really in Hawai'i...Most of the extras in the flashback sequences look like they've been flown in." Cataluna further laments that "There may never be another long, glorious run like ["Hawaii Five-O"] for Hawai'i actors and crew, and that's a shame."

At least we locals can re-live Waikiki past weeknights at 7pm on Channel 11. Maybe you can even catch the episode in which Ricardo Montalban plays a Japanese crime boss.
