Protecting Hawaii from criminals of all classes, Steve McGarrett (Jack Lord) and his Five-O team face many challenges in this fifth season, including Duke (Herman Wedemeyer) being accused of murder and Danno (James MacArthur) mistakenly shooting an unarmed teen. In addition, McGarrett and company run into trouble with the Vashon mob family, bomb-planting vigilante nationalists and a crazed electronics wizard.
THE AV REVIEW:
p align=”left”>The print conversions have been stunning, with beautiful color and sharp grain structure. The sound is excellent and, most importantly, all the original music seems to have been left intact. They’re also being released as full season sets, instead of the frustrating half-season-at-a-time rip off scheme. As for any new editing, I personally have not noticed anything radical, or any premature digital fades to hurry the end of a scene (as with TV reruns of this show when they insert extra commercials). I hate the idea that anything is being left out from these and I would MUCH prefer they remain totally intact!
The DVD much like the film is a lean beast with limited highlights. The A/V Quality is amazing, but all it does is give you a better shot of Jack Lord against a studio set. The special features are limited and support the main feature. But, that’s it. If you’re expecting something more, I’d advise to look elsewhere.
