"Hawaii Five O Is easily one of the best shows ever.
For over 10 seasons the show consistently put out
well scripted episodes. And for it's time the show
had episodes that are still relevant in today's world,
i.e.- computer hacking, serial killers, insurance fraud, etc.
The show lasted 12 seasons and didn't run out of gas
until after season 8, and then they still produced the
occasional great episode just not as many.
I would suggest buy all the seasons up to season 8
and for the seasons after wait until they are discounted.

"Hawai'i Five-O was probably one of the best, if not the best, cop/detective shows ever. The stories were always well-written, and never once did I lose interest or become bored with ANY of the episodes. A great cast and great scenery of Hawai'i. Highly recommended for Five-O fans."

"My wife was a "military brat" in Honolulu when this show was in production. She and her girlfriends used to like to go down to the filming to watch. The chase scenes, she says, were the most interesting because there's nowhere to go on Oahu so they would just chase around and around the block. A member of her church, Lowell Larson, was chosen to be a stand in for James MacArthur, Detective Danny Williams (Dan-o). The "Police Station" they used was the `Iolani Palace."
A great comedy!

"Before everyone begins tuning up, let me stress that I like this show, and I still watch it.
However, the next time you sit down to watch McGarrett and his boys, look for these things:
-Dan-o, Chin, Duke, Tank and all the others apparently do nothing but mill around at crime scenes until Steve shows up and begins issuing a string of amazingly obvious instructions to them. "See if anyone around here saw anything." "Get that gun down to the lab" "Look around and see if there are any other witnesses," etc.
McGarrett apparently owns five or six thousand expensive suits, since he wears anywhere from three to five different ones in most shows. He must have some clothing allowance, because he treats them like garbage; wading in the surf, crawling through bushes, leaning against dirty cars, etc.
The radio system in Hawaii is phenomenal, with patches going through in a matter of seconds, and McGarrett is never more than a step or two away from the radio when a call comes in for him.
Watching this show would make you wonder if everyone in Hawaii reports to McGarrett, as he regularly orders the Honolulu Police department, the Coast Guard and even the Navy around. Doesn't anyone ever tell him to get lost?
McGarrett and all his minions apparently know nothing about preservation of evidence, almost always compromising crime scenes by picking up guns, using the phones, pawing over vehicles, etc.
Many people have said that this show was almost totally devoid of humor. It's full of humor, you just have to look for it.
