4 stars out of 5 -- "[I]t's full of beautiful locations as well as solid stories and characters."
One of TV's longest-running crime dramas (only LAW & ORDER would surpass its record-setting 12-year run), the 1970s television series HAWAII FIVE-O captivated audiences with its smart and stylish take on the standard policier formula. Filmed entirely on the Hawaiian archipelago, the action-packed series followed the crime-fighting adventures of an elite state-police squad anchored by quintessential tough guy Steve McGarrett (Jack Lord) and his detective team of Danny "Danno" Williams (James MacArthur), Chin Ho Kelly (Kam Fong), and Kono Kalakaua (Zulu). Almost singlehandedly rewriting the book on police dramas, the series distinguished itself with intricate plotting, inventive cinematography, exotically beautiful locations, and, of course, an indelible theme song and timeless catchphrase ("book 'em, Danno!"). This collection resurrects the iconic series with all 24 episodes of its 1968 debut season, which featured guest stars like FANTASY ISLAND's Ricardo Montalban, THE LOVE BOAT's Gavin Macleod, and AIRPLANE's Leslie Nielsen.

The hair, the threads, the grass skirts, the glory

Arguably the greatest tv show ever made. Remember the heat that used to come off the back of your daddy's tv? Well this show is hotter. Jack Lord had it all: tonsorial as well a sartorial perfection. The script was always garrote tight and the music was cooler than a morning mimosa. Take it from a mack daddy-o that actually owns some of Jack's wardrobe, the first season is where it's at...grass skirts and lawnmowers baby!
