1973 Episode ‘Hookman’!!

I am – Hercules!!

When I read the EW headline “'Hawaii Five-0' to remake 'fan-favorite' episode of original series – EXCLUSIVE,” I knew – even though the original “Five-0” ran 284 episodes – it was going to be “Hookman,” the tale of a deranged amputee with ties to Steve McGarrett.

Michael O’Donoghue and Dan Aykroyd reference the episode early in this segment from Lorne Michaels' NBC-special-turned-motion-picture “Mr. Mike’s Mondo Video”:

“Star Trek” icon Peter Weller will both direct the episode and star as its title character.
