Oh, yeah, very different. Zero character development, and after about the sixth season the plots start to get repetitive. It was very much Jack Lord's show, with everyone (including Danny) playing third fiddle to McGarrett.
Wonder how and why it lasted for 12 seasons.
I n the early years its was up against stuff like the Dragnet reboot and the location was a big draw. For most of its run you had the "exotic" cop like Kojak and his ethnic squad of another location like The Streets of San Francisco. But mostly it was fare like The FBI with the same lack of character development or Baretta with a fully formed character from the get go. And then came the buddy cop teams like Starsky and Hutch as the Five-O cast/cops aged out
