Top 5 favorite filmed-in-Hawaii TV series ever: HAWAII Magazine Facebook poll results

We’ve counted the votes from our latest HAWAII Magazine Facebook Ohana poll question: What’s your favorite filmed-in-Hawaii TV show or made-for-the-small-screen mini-series or movie? The top five vote-getters are on the pages ahead.

As it turns out, Hawaii-filmed television shows took all five top spots in the poll. So, made-for-TV mini-series, such as The Thorn Birds (1983), with Richard Chamberlain and Rachel Ward, did not make the cut. Same for TV movies, such as Tempted, Lifetime Channel (2003). Among the TV shows that gathered votes but missed the cut: The Byrds of Paradise (1993-94), an ABC family drama that followed the day-to-day adventures of a father and three children who had just moved  to Hawaii; and The Brian Keith Show, originally titled The Little People, (1972-74), a sitcom focused on a father-daughter pediatrician team running a clinic for children in Hawaii.

No. 5

Dog: the Bounty Hunter

With the eighth season of Dog: the Bounty Hunter now airing on the A&E Television Network, Duane “Dog” Chapman’s show continues to attract a variety of viewers. There are those who enjoy following its tough-guy-on-the-right-side-of-the-law tactics in tracking down law-breakers. And there are those who tune in largely to catch bits and pieces of Hawaii scenery. Last fall, Chapman (pictured, above) opened a gift shop in East Oahu, near Hanauma Bay. Da Kine Dog House is stocked with show-related merchandise. Originally located downtown, close to the bail bond office featured in the series, Chapman and his wife, Beth, reportedly opted to move the shop closer to their residence in the Hawaii Kai area.
