I am thrilled to have Hawaii 5-0 on DVD. I remembered it as my favorite TV crime drama ever, and so far, it is holding up very well. A couple of other observations:
- Whether you like the show or not, I think it is nearly indisputable that Hawaii 5-0 has the best intro of any TV series ever made. Mission: Impossible is pretty good, but I never liked the practice of having scenes from the days show in the intro.
- I am watching show 4 or so of the first season, and they have Ricardo Montalban playing a Japanese man. Never has a Caucasian looked less like a Japanese man since Sean Connery when he was supposed to have been surgically altered to be Japanese in You Only Live Twice. [check out Montalban's linked videography - in the last 60's and 70's he was on nearly every TV show I can remember]
