      The first season of Hawaii Five-O is offered in slim pack cases, with two disks in each jacket, except for the last one. That’s a total of seven disks. Now I have some concerns about these slim packs because there are some that can actually damage DVDs over time. None of these had any damage on them, but I must admit that it’s in the back of my mind.

      There are five total slim packs that fit


      nicely into the colorful box depicting the Five-O team. The disks all feature color photos of various cast regulars, including Jack Lord, James McArthur, and Kam Fong.

      The one somewhat annoying thing for me was that at the beginning of playing each DVD, you have to choose the language from English, Spanish, and Portuguese. It’s great to have the options, but that should be in the setup and not something that has to be chosen right off the ...

        On the plus side, it does have a ‘play all’ option, which is a feature I love on DVDs that include episodic television. That keeps the shows coming without me having to do anything.

        The set begins with the pilot movie as it originally aired. At the end of season one, the pilot was re-edited into a two-part episode. That is not included in the set. It would have been very repetitive to have done so,

        so I understand why it wasn’t included.

        The only extra came on the last DVD. This is a program called Emme’s Island Memories: Memories of Hawaii Five -O, which includes cast interviews and a tribute to Jack Lord. James McArthur actually co-host the Hawaiian show with Emme Tomimbang. It’s a very entertaining program that was made in 1996. It was just too bad that Lord couldn’t participate in the program.

        Overall, this is a very nice set to have.
