Storyline

The conflicts between conservative rancher Barrett Fears, one of Hawaii's wealthiest and most powerful men, and his headstrong son Mitch punctuated this series set and filmed in Hawaii. Much like another series about ranchers, "Bonanza", family was at the center of most of the characters' problems, as well as the day-to-day difficulties of running a ranch as large as the Paradise and occasional battles with the natives.

Great scenery, fast paced, but somewhat boring stories with week casting..
25 August 2014 | by GrantconroySee all my reviews

This series very much resembled the adventures on the PARKER RANCH on the island of Hawaii although not covering the "historical background" found in the book THE PARKER RANCH OF HAWAII by Joseph Brennan...We had a TV series on CBS at that time (1975-76) and pitched the book on the PARKER RANCH around to programmers & producers on behalf & representing our good friend Joe Brennan who we saw often when in Hawaii...Unfortunately the BIG HAWAII series with it's fabulous scenery suffered from poor scripting and only lasted one season..But the writer went on to become an icon and prolific producer selling the hit series MAGNUM PI in Hawaii a few years latter staring Tom Selleck my school chum from USC among many other very successful TV series..
