Whether it's the memorable theme song from the Ventures, the classic catch phrase "Book'em Danno-Murder One" or the lavish Island scenes;Season One of "Hawaii Five-O" is a welcomed addition to any DVD collection. This incredible 7 disc set contains the original series pilot "Cocoon" and the remaining 24 season one episodes digitally remastered and in spectacular color.
This set consists of seven discs stored in 4 slim cases. Paramount/CBS DVD went the distance with the disc packaging and artwork. Other than some minor speckling the episodes look absolutely amazing. The video transfer is crisp and the colors are sharp and vibrant to say the least. The episodes are presented in full screen format with mono sound. The sound is clean and crisp, but it's too bad that Paramount didn't remaster the sound like they did with "Mission Impossible" season one.
I have never seen the pilot episode "Cocoon" so it was a treat for me and well worth the purchase of this set. Season One of "Hawaii Five-O" with it's great writng, memorable characters, theme music and great dialogue is 60's television at it's finest. This show was groundbreaking entertainment and it set the standard for other police shows to follow.
They don't make TV shows like this anymore and probably never will again. The bonus features found on the last disc were fun to watch and informative. I look forward to season two and hope that Paramount keeps them coming.
