If anyone remembers this show, feel free to post a comment about it. And if anybody happened to tape the movie-length pilot episode or any of the rest of the hour-long episodes, other than the last two, Maybe we can get together for a swap of some kind. I sure would like to see that show again from the beginning because it will probably never be released on DVD.
Episode 2: Ice Cream Man
Episode 3: Wave Of Controversy
Episode 4: Inherited Trait
Episode 5: A Different Kind Of Justice
Episode 6: Missing In Hawaii
Episode 7: Yankees Vs. The Cubs
Episode 8: Ancient Fires
Episode 9: Old Dues
Episode 10: Andy's Mom
Episode 11: Picture Imperfect
Here is how the Hawaiian Heat DVD Project stands at present:
1. Pilot (Acquired)
2. Ice Cream Men (Located, trying to acquire)
3. Wave Of Controversy (Still Need)
4. Inherited Trait (Acquired)

I will have information soon about acquiring episode #2 "Ice Cream Men," so stay tuned. (This just in - I have located episode #5 "A Different Kind Of Justice," and will have an update soon!) For now, the cover art I created for this set looks like this and if you would like to see a more detailed look, download the cover for Volume 7 here. Here is the cover art:
January 29th, 2009 update:
I have just created an entry for this series on Wikipedia. The Hawaiian Heat page can be found here.
March 17th, 2009 update:
I have been contacted by one of the stars of this show, Robert Ginty, and he has generously agreed to donate the four episodes that he has in his personal collection for this project! So, keep faith, there's still hope for a complete set yet!
January 17th, 2010 update:
Of the four episodes donated by Robert Ginty, namely Inherited Trait, A Different Kind Of Justice, MIH - Missing In Hawaii and Old Dues, none of them have the closing credits on the tapes provided. So, if anybody has complete copies of these four episodes, I would like to upgrade them. If I don't come up with any better versions, I'll try to come up with the closing credits and create some kind of sequence to include them on the DVD copies I make, just so they're as complete as possible. One person was looking for one of the needed episodes in his collection, but he hasn't found it yet. That episode was Ice Cream Men. If he does find that episode, that means only three episodes are still needed to complete the set! These three episodes are Wave Of Controversy, Yankees vs. The Cubs and Ancient Fires. So, if anybody has copies of any or all of these missing shows, please contact me. It's getting very close to being completed and I know there are still a lot of fans out there who would like to see this show again! So, keep the faith!
Robert Ginty sent me the episodes he had and I'm certain he knew he was dying when he did so and this was his way of giving his blessings to the Hawaiian Heat DVD Project. Let's help keep the memory of this great actor alive by completing the set and making it available for all his fans.
