  1. I thank God that after 27 years Paramount, CBS & Viacom finally released my favorite TV show. I have enjoyed all of season 1 and have finally received my season 2 discs. To sit back and cry over a deleted episode is a joke. Even CBS in the late 60’s realized that they had a problem with an episode and decided to not rerun it. So what! I am happy with the remainder of the episodes I did get. What next complain they didn’t drive any Chevy’s? Complain about Zulu changing his name to Kono? Some people are never happy no matter how long they waited. Get over it morons.

    I have a 42″ plasma and found a production flaw with almost every episode. If you don’t want to be spoiled stop reading now. The flaw deals with daytime outdoor shots. It seemed they used some sort of mirror to highling the actors in the frame and it just follows the actors every movemnt until the next scene. It was very annyoing the first time I saw it, and then I kept seeing the “extra lighting” in all the other episodes. Other than that minor annoyance, and some skipping, and stuttering of scenes-I think which might be an equipment issue on my end and not a problem with the disks, the collection makes for enjoyable viewing-overall. Please note that these episodes took place nearly 40 years ago, and some of the content does not translate to today’s world. But, if CBS ever wanted to do a movie based on the series (a current Hollywood trend) there are many relevant episodes that can be reworked to be scene in theaters today-especially “Three Dead Cows at Makapuu”. But, I would have that be a Hawaii 5-0, the Movie II, not I.

    Got my 2nd season today and with the controversial episode(for those times) missing and other episodes edited, come on Paramount, not good. Don’t get me wrong. I love the show but I wish they would speed up the release times and stop messing with the original versions. Like previous post, 5 stars but only gets 3 because it’s an incomplete set. I’m still excited to add it to the collection though.

    The Salt Lake City area has a local station, KPNZ I think, that had been playing 2 episodes/night(8pm,9pm Mon-Fri ish) for awhile now (past year or so), but up until lately they had discontinued it and replaced it with stupid info-commercials and other lame shows. The lineup use to be Hawaii Five-0 at 7pm, then an hour of Magnum PI and then another hour of Hawaii Five-0. That was some sweet programming. At least I could get my Hawaii Five-0 fix before they started coming out on DVD.

    Ugh ! Paramount really dropped the ball with this one.

    Claming to contain all the episodes of season 2, when in

    fact it does not. Left off is the controversial episode

    “Bored She Hung Herself”. The subject matter caused that

    episode to be the only one never released in syndication,

    and now not on the dvd set.

    What is here you can read elsewhere,

    it’s easy to see why this is the best police drama ever !

    However I am very disspapointed with Paramount.

    I give it 4 stars, instead of 5, for falling short

    of what it claims- once again a network screws up

    something that should be easy to do.

    The second season may not be complete as 1 episode may not be included ( Bored, She Hung Herself ) and other episodes may be edited from their originally aired versions
