This review is from: Hawaii Five-O: The Complete Second Season [DVD] (DVD)
This classic series has been remastered, and looks better than ever. The episodes of the second season tell straightforward, well-made stories that provide first-class entertainment. The acting is generally very good, and there are also some notable guest stars.

Season Two is a solid follow-up to Season One, with the same main characters and production crew in place to provide further exciting adventures in the spectacular Hawaiian islands. So if you enjoyed the first season, buy the second with confidence.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good, but......., 2 Aug. 2007

This review is from: Hawaii Five-O: The Complete Second Season [DVD] (DVD)
UPDATE - this review is in relation to the original series of 5-0 from 1969/70 and thus not the new version - Amazon glitch...

Well, what can I say, quality wise, the prints for this season's episodes are right up there with the high standard of the season 1 DVD boxset. For this reason and the fact that the episodes themselves are of a high standard, I'm happy to award this 5 stars. However, all is not great with this release. Sadly, Paramount have chosen to include only 24 of 25 season two episodes. "Bored She Hung Herself" has been omitted - this episode, which has never been broadcast here in the UK, was only shown once in America. Apparently, a misguided viewer decided to copy the 'hanging' techniques included within the show and thus ended up killing herself. Perhaps Paramount were concerned that a similar incident may occur upon this DVD release. Still, for me, there is no excuse for not having this episode here on this set - although admittedly and by all accounts, this episode isn't actually that great anyway! Also disconcerting is the statement on the back of the boxset that some episodes may be cut..! That aside, regarding the episodes themselves, pretty good all in all. In my opinion, the show really came into its own by the latter half of season 3 and maintained this mantle right through until season 6. Worth buying, with the only drawback being the fact its not a complete season 2 release.

Nice to have an old favourite - brings back fond memories of past days. The theme tune has always been very memorable - not to mention McGarrets catch phrase - book them Danno!

This review is from: Hawaii Five-O: The Complete Second Season [DVD] (DVD)
This series has been a complete success from the start. There is a good blend of action, humour, and somehow the episodes are not repetitive. All the filming is from the Hawaian Islands themselves.

Jack Lord who plays Steve McGarrett is the man who ultimately maintains the success of the series. His professional and class shine out. There is also a good combination of other actors including locals.

The theme tune to the series is legendary!!!

Has the series got cult status... Absolutely.

5.0 out of 5 stars Original Hawaii 5-O, 3 May 2012

This review is from: Hawaii Five-O: The Complete Second Season [DVD] (DVD)
We are enjoying , once again , this very popular TV series, The DVD quality is excellent and the colour really good, unlike some American films the reds are true and not orange as in many older films. We are enjoying the DVD's immensely !! It says a lot that we have to look back to older series to get proper entertainment. !!!!!

The only thing which dates the show are the extremely long cars , also long forgotten. I'm glad I don't have to drive or park one.

this almost defies a review. if you were there to see the original series, then it is a joy to step back in time to see it all again. the world may have changed but the characters and backdrop remain stunning. if you are new to this then simply put, it is a vibrant police drama within a time when everything was possible.
