In the Aloha State, the action doesn't get any hotter, and the most diabolical criminals never take a vacation. Luckily, neither does the most elite police force ever assembled: Five-O. Detective Steve McGarrett is back, and thieves, gangsters and murderers are going away - for good. If you're looking for danger and excitement, the eight season of Hawaii Five-O is here - with all the explosive twists and turns of a legendary TV classic!

5.0 out of 5 stars Another classic season of Hawaii Five-O 28 Jan 2010
Format:DVD
This boxset should contain all 23 episodes from Hawaii Five-O's eighth season, which premiered on CBS in the US during the 1975-76 season, and hopefully Jack Lord episodic promos for all 23 episodes.

The eighth season was another classic year, but it was interesting because during this season Hawaii Five-O was in the same timeslot as NBC's The Rockford Files. Both shows suffered in the ratings when they went against one another, and both shows dropped out of the Top 30 overall season rankings (although Hawaii Five-O returned to the Top 30 for the ninth and tenth seasons, The Rockford Files didn't return to the Top 30).

The main cast this season consisted of Jack Lord, James MacArthur and Kam Fong, as Herman Wedemeyer didn't join the main cast until the following season.

Guest starring in the feature length season premiere were Harry Guardino, Lloyd Bochner and Khigh Dheigh (returning as Wo Fat).

The 23 episodes in season eight (I say 23, because of the two hour season premiere episode "Murder - Eyes Only". On Region 2 it will probably be around 90-93 minutes long. This is if CBS DVD put the feature-length version in the boxset and not a two-part version) are below in the way they should be on the 6 discs in this boxset (assuming it will be a 6 disc set again):

Season Eight (1975-76):

Disc 1 -

1. Murder - Eyes Only (Season Premiere)
2. McGarrett is Missing
3. Termination with Extreme Prejudice

Disc 2 -

4. Target? The Lady
5. Death's Name is Sam
6. The Case Against McGarrett (sequel to the V for Vashon trilogy)
7. The Defector

Disc 3 -

8. Sing a Song of Suspense
9. Retire in Sunny Hawaii - - Forever (guest starring Helen Hayes)
10.

3.0 out of 5 stars Book 'em, Murder One! 18 Feb 2010
By S. Ward
Format:DVD
I must admit, Season 8 was the season that I started to tune out of Five-0. I'm a big fan of the first six seasons - for me, these seasons represent superb escapist television at its very best. In these early years, Jack Lord was coolness personified and the show was a no nonsense gritty AND entertaining drama.

Unlike in the latter years, in those early seasons, McGarrett's anger never appeared contrived or forced - you really felt this man's rage! Circa 1974 this changed and McGarrett's spontaneous outburst against life's injustices became elongated rants to whoever was within ear shot.

Additionally, the big attraction of the show was how one week you could see a light-hearted episode and the next you'd see a hard hitting thought provoking instalment - season 4 demonstrates this nicely, `Odd Man In' and then `Skinhead' could hardly be more different, but they were encompassed together within the same season. This kind of contrast was rife in the early years and, more importantly, superbly executed. With Season 7 there were signs of wear and I'm afraid that this increased with during season 8. It's really a paradox that the earlier episodes seem fresher and less dated than anything post 1974. What's the saying, quit whilst you're ahead, sadly this wasn't heeded, however, that said, there are still some very good episodes within this eighth season.

The opener, `Murder - Eyes Only' is a feature length special and is pretty good - this is how i'd have liked to have seen the show continue, i.e. as two hour long specials, maybe 6 or 7 in a season - that way we'd have kept quality over quantity. Unfortunately this wasn't to be and the remaining 22 episodes are the usual 50 minute affair.

5.0 out of 5 stars great! 20 April 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
i bought this item as a gift for my friend, who lives in birmingham, firstly, i was pleased it was able to be sent directly to her address, then i did not of course pay added postage to forward the package! after talking with my friend, as she is a fan of this series, it was a box set which she had previously been unable to obtain, so has completed her collection! so, all in all, both my friend and myself are very satisfied with the purchase, and it shows that via this site, you can obtain items which you would like and cannot find elsewhere, thanks, amazon!! xx

5.0 out of 5 stars Hurry! 7 April 2011
Format:DVD
Hey, please hurry to release this season in the U.K. Please stop delaying the release. At first it said October 2010, then March 2011 and now nothing at all.
This is a great classic show. Can't wait! What a cool mix of sunny beaches, good cops and 70s-feeling.
