This was TV like to should be. The people could act, and the storys were good. You had to watch it
and going along for about 50 + mins to see what was going to happen. The so called people that think they can act ect today.
are a joke. And the stores Ha! Get this set! Watch it from A-Z. And Book'em Danno! You will be glad you did..
I spent HOURS checking all 72 discs. About 50% of the discs had either scratches or glue residue (thanks to the cut rate coin holder packaging) and required cleaning with a soft clot. I knew I would have to discard the original packaging because reinserting the discs would subject them to further damage.
Given all that, the S4 D3 disc was the deal breaker.
When played in my DVD player, this disc skips the standard CBS splash screen when you first load it and starts to play the first episode on the disc ("Burning Ice"). It is then possible to navigate back to the episode menu, However, two of the episodes that should be on the disc ("A Matter of Mutual Concern" and "Nine, Ten -- You're Dead" are COMPLETELY MISSING. They are listed on the episode menu, but when you select them and hit play, you are presented with pieces of "Burning Ice" (already on S4 D3) and "Bait Once, Bait Twice" (which is in it's entirety on S4 D4) instead of the expected episodes.
This must be a manufacturer defect. Three other buyers have pointed out problems with this S4 D3 disc on the boxed set.
Strangely, I see no mention of the problem in the review for stand alone Season Four set.
Needless to stay, my boxed set is on it's way back to Amazon, who, to their credit, issued a no questions asked refund.
Happily, Amazon provided a complete replacement set. However, again Season 4 Disc 3 has scratches. (I note another reviewer pointed out the same problem with the SAME DISC. Maybe it's a production problem.) This time, I was able to get WinDVD player to operate this disk, but it won't load on VLC Player. So I suppose I will just have to watch this disc in a different player.
If you want a collector's set that really looks good this is for you. (Other than the missing episode from Season 2, mentioned elsewhere.) On the other hand, if you really expect to watch these shows often, you might want to find a set that comes in plastic cases rather than cardboard sleeves. In any case, if you purchase this set I recommend you open it upon receipt and actually check each disc to confirm they are good. I didn't play every disc all the way through, just loaded each one and ran it a little bit. I'm glad I did.
Amazon is really great about merchandise replacement but there is a limited time deadline. Don't make the mistake of putting this on a shelf and watching it over the next year or so. You might find an unpleasant surprise later on.
themselves and send out the other separate
seasons as gifts!
There is also a very worthy package of the first
9 seasons packaged together, since many don't like
the 10th, 11th and especially the twelfth seasons.
Speaking of the 12th season, this version has a
different cover! It has McGarrett, Duke, the Gov
and Nick (Lt. Danny Kamekona), instead of Truck
(and Lori)! Pick Up On It!
Except that 'Bored, she hung herself' is not here in
season three - unless you get the ntsc aussie version!
Book'em anyway Danno (or Dano, or Duke, or CHin Ho, or
Nick...or Frank...) Interesting as they changed the cover to
McGarrett, Duke and added Nick [Danny Kamkona) and the The
Governour [Rich Denning, Sr.].

Our old house in Hawaii was featured in one episode. I actually knew a few of the actors by way of my Coast Guard career. This is much better than the new Five-O. Read morePublished 1 month ago by DW
