    His co-starring role in the 1971 sci-fi classic "The Andromeda Strain" is a rare chance to see him in a non-villain role for a change.

    When I think of this episode, I always keep remembering how McGarrett rattles off the number of years someone is facing three times. Oddly with Birney I thought he was being too easy on him...

    Further proof that they knew what they were doing when "Thad Vaughn" became "Joey Collins." Remember in "Mrs. Moroney" Danny says to Marty that the Grand Jury chose not to indict him. But...
