Filmed entirely on location in Hawaii, the show followed Jack Lord as he played Steve McGarrett, head of an elite state police unit investigating "organized crime, murder, assassination attempts, foreign agents, felonies of every type." James MacArthur played his second-in-command Danny ("Danno") Williams, with local actors playing members of the Five-O team.

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.
The "unlit" star refers to the fact that the holding carton for one of the DVDs (Season 10) is torn. I'm also on the lookout for any "unplayable episodes" that may show up. I'll update this as I surf along. Great gift I gave myself! Highly recommended.
Season 2, disks 1 and 4 both have the 2nd episode freeze in the same manner. No visible scratches -- just freeze and skip.
I gave up checking at that point and I'm returning it for a refund (Marketplace Seller shipping through Amazon). I'll think about getting it in individual seasons -- easier to check out -- less frustration!
