Season 1, Episode 12

The closer the team gets to catching the killer, the more enthralled we are! In this episode, Five-0 spends a tense Christmas negotiating a hostage situation when the man who killed McGarrett's father threatens to detonate an explosive. And that's just the beginning...

Season 2, Episode 1

In the season 2 premiere, McGarrett (played by Alex O'Loughlin) escapes from prison with the help of—you wouldn't believe it!—the man who killed his father. This fugitive storyline kept us on the edge of our seats.

Season 3, Episode 6

This episode gave us the background we needed to love Danny's character (played by Scott Caan) even more. As McGarrett tries to distract Danny from the bomb strapped to him—casual, right?—Danny tells us the story of the most emotional case he tackled during his years as a cop.

Season 4, Episode 10

This episode focuses on the investigation into the attempted murder of a Pearl Harbor veteran by a man who—get this—accuses the veteran of having murdered his father decades earlier. And on top of that, the would-be murderer has connections to McGarrett's past. Can you say "drama"?

Season 5, Episode 7

"Ina Paha" means "If Perhaps," and this episode gives viewers a glimpse at what could've been for their favorite H50 characters had they taken different paths in the past. Fun fact: This marks the series' 100th episode.

Season 6, Episode 25

The season finale cements the team spirit and brotherhood between McGarrett and Danny. Incorporating everything from undercover work to a meth epidemic to a grave injury, this episode is a true celebration of "ohana" (family).

Season 7, Episode 8

Who can resist a story set at a high school dance? While Danny is chaperoning his daughter's winter formal, terrorists seize control of the venue in hopes of kidnapping a diplomat's son. A high-stakes hostage situation combined with a bit of teen drama (for comedic relief) makes this a nail-biter.

Season 8, Episode 2

What do you do when your only witness is a dog? That's right, a dog. This episode gives viewers a lighthearted take on an ambushed drug bust—plus it introduces one of our favorite characters, Junior Reigns (played by Beulah Koale).

Season 9, Episode 10

In one of the most wrenching storylines of the season, McGarrett and Joe White (returning guest star Terry O'Quinn) flee to Montana after an attack on McGarrett. But they aren't safe there either. A bloody ambush and an emotion-packed ending make this episode an instant classic.

Season 10, Episode 22

We hate to say goodbye to H50, but we still love this episode. The series finale wraps up all the mysteries about McGarrett and packs plenty of high-stakes drama. Complete with flashbacks and farewells, this was the ending that Hawaii Five-0 fans deserved.

Long before they became the most successful husband-and-wife showrunner team on television, Michelle and Robert King were the keepers of a particularly juicy workplace secret. It was 1983, and Robert, a recent college graduate, had moved to Los Angeles to try and make it as a screenwriter. To finance that dream, he'd taken a minimum-wage job at an athletic footwear store in Brentwood called FrontRunners. It was hardly the most romantic chapter of his life—that is, until the day he found himself working the same shift as a new, part-time employee about to enter her senior year at UCLA.

"We met while we were both restocking the sock wall," says Robert. "Our hands connected across the rows and rows of socks."

Listening to the umpteenth retelling of their unlikely and decidedly un-Hollywood meet-cute, Michelle rolls her eyes and begins to laugh. Robert looks at her and, encouraged by her reaction, continues: "I was doing the lighting on some stage play at the Mormon temple. And I asked you if you wanted to go. Remember?" Michelle nods. How could she forget?

Four years later, they were married. That fateful afternoon may have been the first time that the Kings' personal and professional lives overlapped, but it wouldn't be the last. As the powerhouse creators and showrunners behind the acclaimed CBS legal drama The Good Wife and now its CBS All Access spinoff, The Good Fight, as well as the network's demons-and-miracles procedural Evil, the couple has become the rare exception to the rule that people should never be married to their work. "And just for the record," deadpans Michelle, "we don't keep our relationship a secret anymore."

On a chilly winter afternoon at their production office in a nondescript, industrial section of Brooklyn, the Kings seem to be juggling a million different dizzying tasks at once. But if they're spread thin, you'd never guess it from their easy, united-we-stand chemistry. Today, for example, they hit the ground running with a 10 a.m. meeting with The Good Fight's production designers. Then it was straight into the show's writers' room to hash out the last episode of the new season, where they'll spitball ideas until 6 p.m., only occasionally breaking off to put out fires in the editing room.

When asked how they divvy up the assortment of day-to-day responsibilities involved with shepherding multiple hit shows on multiple platforms (the Evil writing team is on hiatus until June, but a third show—SHOWTIME's limited series YOUR HONOR, starring Bryan Cranston—is currently shooting in New Orleans), Michelle says, "There's enough to do that there's no preciousness about who's doing what. Robert tends to take the lead on editorial and rewrites …" Robert picks up her thought like a relay baton: "And Michelle handles casting, legal, wardrobe, and the look of the shows. But we're both equal in the writers' room …" Michelle takes the baton back: "People always ask, 'Who's the good cop and who's the bad cop?' It's not like that. It's more like, 'You can do it? God bless you!'"

Their partnership didn't always work this way. For the first 15 years of their marriage, the Kings kept their work lives separate from their domestic one. Back then, Robert worked as a screenwriter of big-budget features such as 1997's Red Corner and 2000's Vertical Limit, while Michelle worked in development at various studios and production companies. Then, in 2001, they began developing a series at ABC together about the U.S./Mexico border called The Line. The show wasn't picked up, which they admit stung, but their new partnership felt like its own sort of success.

The Kings were surprised not only by how well they worked together, but also by how much they liked working in television. The medium's instant yes-or-no greenlight decision-making was a welcome antidote to the slow, fickle, death-by-a-thousand-cuts world of the movie studios. They continued cranking out pilot scripts, some of which made it to series, like 2006's In Justice. But their biggest success wouldn't come until 2009, when they tapped into the zeitgeist with a series about a political wife whose husband gets embroiled in a tabloid nightmare and is sent to prison.

"There were all of these scandals, one right after the other," says Michelle, "Eliot Spitzer, John Edwards, Mark Sanford, and there were so frequently women standing right next to them. In a number of cases, those women were very accomplished and attorneys. We just looked at those photos and said, 'OK, who is she? And what's she thinking about?'"

The Good Wife would run for seven Emmy-decorated, water-cooler-buzz-worthy seasons, from 2009 to 2016, and in the process become one of the most acclaimed dramatic series in a decade that seemed to have no shortage of acclaimed dramatic series. It was the New Golden Age of TV. And all of a sudden, the Kings were part of a new kind of Hollywood royalty. Just a decade earlier, no one knew what showrunners were or what they did. Now, in the new calculus, they've become the entertainment industrial complex's equivalent of hot celebrity chefs or rock stars. Not that the Kings had any idea of that.

"I was really unaware of it because we were in it," says Michelle, without an ounce of faux humility. "You're just going to the office and doing the work and then you're going home. The first season premiered in September, and then we had a Christmas party, and people from the crew kept coming up to me saying, 'What does it feel like to have a hit on your hands?' I pulled Robert aside and said, 'Do we have a hit?'"

By the time they reached the seventh and final season of The Good Wife, all the Kings knew was that they were exhausted. The grueling, 22-episodes-a-season run had taken its toll. So when their fellow producers and the network asked if they might be interested in running a spinoff, their initial response was tepid. They weren't convinced it was the best idea. After all, for every Frasier, there are a dozen The Tortellis.

The Kings took a three-week vacation to Edinburgh and Amsterdam to recharge and reconsider, and when they returned, they started to take the idea more seriously. The fact that CBS said that the show would be on the CBS All Access streaming network and could be done in a more manageable, 10-episode season certainly helped, as did Christine Baranski's commitment to star. And that's how The Good Fight was born.

While The Good Wife had grappled with the liberal mindset of the Obama era, The Good Fight would end up being just as topical and button-pushing, addressing America in the age of Trump. It doesn't shy away from politics, but it also doesn't seem partisan or didactic. In the pilot, Baranski's hard-charging attorney Diane Lockhart is disgraced and pushed out of her old law firm only to find a new sense of mission by joining Reddick, Boseman & Kolstad—a prestigious African American–run firm and former competitor. The Good Wife's loyal fanbase followed her.

At the same time that the Kings were redefining what "Good" was, they began flirting with Evil—a second CBS show that couldn't be more different in genre, subject, and tone from The Good Fight, or frankly anything they'd done before.

Inspired by an ongoing conversation that the couple had been having for years, Evil asks the question: What makes people do bad things? "Michelle and I have very different backgrounds," says Robert, explaining what inspired Evil's premise. "We've been together 35 years, but religiously, I'm Catholic and I go to Mass every Sunday, while Michelle's …" He turns to his wife, again telepathically handing the baton. "I'm a secular Jew," she says, finishing his thought.

Part investigative procedural, part supernatural horror, and even part will-they-or-won't-they workplace romance, the show follows an investigative team made up of a skeptical psychologist (Katja Herbers), a priest-in-training (Mike Colter), and a contractor (Aasif Mandvi) who look into creepy cases trying to divine whether the people who commit crimes are simply bad or there are more inexplicable and demonic forces at work.

Before the first season ended in January, CBS greenlit a second. And while the couple is tight-lipped about where the show is headed in its sophomore year, other than saying it gets "darker," they admit that the reaction has been better than they'd ever hoped. Says Michelle: "The biggest compliment we've gotten is people telling us that it's too scary to watch at 10 o'clock. And that they have to tape it and watch it during the day."

As she finishes her thought, an assistant pokes her head into the Kings' office. She'd be tapping her watch if she were wearing one. They were due back in The Good Fight's writers' room 15 minutes ago. Getting up, they look at their phones, which are glowing with a dozen other urgent questions that require their immediate yays or nays. Saying goodbye, Robert apologizes for how frazzled they must seem. "The truth is, if Michelle and I weren't married and working together, we probably wouldn't see each other at all," he says. Then, right on cue, Michelle picks up the baton one last time to complete her other half's thought: "Honestly, I don't know how anyone does this job without being married."

​The Kings' Treasures

Michelle and Robert King have no shortage of imagination, as witnessed by the five stellar series they've created.

BrainDead

This quirky 2016 sci-fi satire, which ran for one season, put Tony Shalhoub and Mary Elizabeth Winstead into the deliciously out-there premise that asked: What if the bipartisan tension in Washington, D.C., was caused by a race of extraterrestrial insects devouring the brains of politicians?

The Good Wife

The hugely influential hit drama, which starred Julianna Margulies as Alicia Florrick, the wronged political spouse turned fiercely independent litigator, ran for seven hit seasons on CBS, from 2009 to 2016, and racked up five Emmys in the process. This is the show that put the Kings on the map, turning them into a husband-and-wife showrunning force to be reckoned with.

Evil

After a bone-chilling debut season, this creepy prime-time procedural starring Katja Herbers, Mike Colter, and Aasif Mandvi as investigators of the supernatural has been reordered for a second season of miracles, demons, and sexual tension.

YOUR HONOR

Breaking Bad's Bryan Cranston heads up this buzzy, 10-episode limited series (adapted from the Israeli legal thriller Kvodo and written by The Night Of's Peter Moffat) about a New Orleans judge whose son is involved in a hit-and-run that leads to a web of lies and deceit. Hope Davis, Carmen Ejogo, and Michael Stuhlbarg co-star.

YOUR HONOR airs later this year on SHOWTIME.

To say Homeland was shocking would be a bit of an understatement. The gripping drama used all the elements of a spy thriller, with enough twists and turns to make the eight-season SHOWTIME series one for the record books.

We're still reeling from last month's series finale, so we decided to take a look back at the show's top five jaw-dropping moments. Beware: minor spoilers ahead!

Season 4, Episode 7

We didn't know what to believe while watching this episode. After taking some tainted medicine, Carrie (Claire Danes) became more and more paranoid while trying to cope with Brody's death. This roller coaster of an episode gave us a taste of the mania that Carrie felt.

Season 2, Episode 12

In the Season 2 finale, we witnessed a memorial service that—pardon the pun—blew us away. A bomb went off, killing nearly 200 people, including some of our favorite characters. (We're still recovering.)

Season 4, Episode 9

This episode completed the arc of Saul's kidnapping. Just when we all thought Saul (Mandy Patinkin) had given up, Carrie stepped in to talk him off the ledge. Using her effective CIA techniques, she persuaded him to keep going in a heart-racing scene that solidified the pair's friendship.

Season 7, Episode 12

As one of the biggest cliffhangers in the show's run, this episode revealed that Carrie had spent seven months imprisoned in Russia without her meds, unable to recognize anyone after her release—even Saul. This somber ending to the show's seventh season chilled us to the bone.

Emmy and Peabody Award-winner Keegan-Michael Key has yet another cool entertainment gig to add to his impressive resume: hosting the new sports competition series GAME ON! on CBS.

Debuting on Wednesday, May 27, GAME ON! from Fulwell 73 executive producers Ben Winston and James Corden (The Late Late Show with James Corden) features two teams of three, captained by tennis champion and entrepreneur Venus Williams and Super Bowl champion Rob Gronkowski, alongside comedians Bobby Lee and Ian Karmel and various sports stars, comedians, and celebrities. They compete against each other in over-the-top physical challenges, absurd trivia, and epic field competitions.

"This is a format that kind of exists in its own category," said Keegan-Michael Key. "The show is super fun, it is super exciting, and anybody can watch. The timing is really fortuitous because in this absence of sports right now we have this show that is all about fun and competition that will hopefully fill that void."

Watch spoke to Keegan-Michael Key about his new show, his multiple roles in the entertainment industry, and the one job in particular that he may have pursued before the acting bug bit.

GAME ON! premieres on Wednesday, May 27 at 8/7c on CBS and streams on CBS All Access.

Watch is all about television's hottest shows. Tell us more about your new show GAME ON! on CBS.

This show has everything—from aerial combat and monster truck rallies to members of our team kicking field goals at football games in front of 30,000 people—and everything in between. It is epic in scope and still so fun because there are other elements like people matching wits with each other and trying to answer trivia questions. It runs the gamut and it is just so relatable.

GAME ON! Is described as a series that celebrates the entertainment of sports. Are you a big sports fan? Do you participate in any sports?

I am a huge sports fan and whenever I have an opportunity to participate, I do. I am the guy that will watch anything…cricket, jai alai…anything! If someone is competing or there is an obstacle or a challenge someone is trying to overcome, I will watch it. I was one of those kids who left the house at 10 a.m. in the summertime and was out all day. Football, baseball, soccer…everything I could play I played, and I had an absolute blast.

I think there is something about the human condition that we thrive on competition. It helps sharpen our entire being, and I think it is essential to our existence.

Did you always want to become a performer?

Actually, when I was coming into my formative years, I wanted to be a veterinarian. I have always loved animals and wanted to make a career out of that. And then someone told me there was math involved, so I said, well, maybe I can be an actor!

I was always fascinated by the entertainment industry, but probably by the time I was 13 I knew I wanted to do some kind of performance. Television was always so magical to me, and once I had a sense that I could do it, and people were supportive, I threw myself in 100%.

Who's your biggest inspiration?

I have two people that got to me early on, and that was Eddie Murphy and Peter Sellers. In a way, they are kind of the same person. They are actors who excel at comedy, but what makes the comedy work is that they're actors first. I know that Eddie Murphy was a standup comedian first, but his talent is so vast it is hard to encompass, and I felt the same way about Peter Sellers. I saw his movies when I was a kid—The Pink Panther series, Being There, and all the early stuff he did on British radio and on The Goon Show—and I became a huge fan.

The comedy was there for both Eddie Murphy and Peter Sellers, but it was the depth and the emotion and the stillness that really inspires. And what an experience it was for me to work on Eddie Murphy's film Dolemite Is My Name. I really learned to stretch as an actor.

You wear multiple "hats": actor, writer, producer, and game show host. Do you have a preference for one over the other?

Actually, my preference is to simply be in the entertainment industry because I enjoy it so much. What I really thrive on is being given the opportunity, and the blessing, to be able to do so many different types of things in the industry on camera.

In a way, this is all role playing, so right now I am playing the role of host, or the manager and ring leader, on GAME ON! And other times I am a serious thespian, or I am acting as the court jester. It's about being able to transform your essence for whatever it is you are doing. My preference is to live in those spaces fully.

When not filming GAME ON! or when sheltering-in-place as we all are now, what do you like to do? Do you have a hidden talent, passion project, or creative pursuit that your fans may not know about you?

When I was younger the one thing that I wanted to do other than be a veterinarian was to be a football player. But now, as an adult, I would have to say singing. I am a singer, which I enjoy very much, and right now I have two projects coming out hopefully by the end of the year where I sing in. And the other thing, as my career continues to change, is I always wanted to be in a spy movie or a movie where you can use martial arts.

When you enjoy what you do, it's your hobby. But I also try to take any influence that I might have and be a role model to others.

What's on your music playlist right now?

I am an enormous Jimi Hendrix fan, and I listen to lot of music from 1968 to 1973. That's kind of my playlist, and there are obscure people I would mention like an artist from my hometown named Rodriguez. I also like the group Parliament with George Clinton, and Motown. Motown is really uplifting right now.

What is your all-time favorite television series? What TV shows are you currently binge-watching or catching up on?

I have two favorites. The one show I just never missed when I was a kid was Happy Days, which sparked my imagination. I could see in my memory when Fonzie had his showdown with Mork from Ork. It was just like the greatest thing I ever saw! And then my adult show is Breaking Bad. I don't think I have ever seen anything better than this show. The complete essence of plot and character is absolutely perfection.

Since I have been working a lot recently, particularly now making videos for kids who are being deprived their graduation ceremonies, that's where I have been spending my time. Not a lot of binging on TV shows at the moment for me.

What advice would you give someone entering the entertainment business today?

I would tell each person to remember that you are enough. If you are going to create a unique presence it is going to rely on you simply being you. There is room for you, and your specialness.

At the end of the day, no matter what happens in this business, and how you might get tossed and turned, you should always remember that you are enough.

GAME ON! premieres on Wednesday, May 27 at 8/7c on CBS and streams on CBS All Access.
