Younger, thinner. no longer bald and with no facial hair, the new version of Wo Fat made his debut in the Dec. 13 oif the new Hawaii Five-O (or Hawaii Five-0, as the new series is officially spelled) series on Dec. 13. The revamped version of Steve McGarrett’s arch foe appeared at the very end of the show so we’ll have to see what develops (and whether he’ll come close to matching Khigh Dhiegh’s portrayal in the original series).
However it turns out, we’re pleased CBS opted to bring back the arch-villain. Wo Fat was to Steve McGarrett as Ernst Stavro Blofeld was to James Bond or Professor Moriatry was to Sherlock Holmes.
