I mentioned on the top 5 of the 70s thread that I was thinking of trying Five-0 again, and Peter F. helpfully pointed me to the pilot Cocoon, which I watched last night with my teenage son. We both thought it was surprisingly good! And, as you folks know, it's quite a bit different from the rest of the series. All of the basic elements were there, but as Peter mentioned this was more James Bond-ish in its approach. I actually liked Jack Lord's McGarrett better in this one, I think, because he was both more active and more vulnerable. And it may seem like a cliché now, but making the cop date the hippy-chick, and yet having them both be equally good and committed to bettering society, was actually pretty bold back in 1968. The sensory deprivation stuff was cutting-edge for back then too—more than a dozen years before Altered States. I almost wished they'd kept with this format for the show, but I imagine the budget just wouldn't have allowed that. And probably thinking up James Bond-like plots week after week would have been not just extremely difficult, but would have made the show wildly implausible to the point of being silly. And so, I guess I'm glad they did something closer to a regular cop show, but set in paradise. I think I liked Cocoon better than any episode of the show I've seen before. I'd probably give it about a "B+"

The genius of the show was creating the concept of a fictional state police agency, because that basically gave the writers the flexibility to go in different directions.    They could do Bond style intrigue (the best example in the series is the S9 two parter "Nine Dragons" which shows Wo Fat at his greatest level of megalomania, or traditional cop show fare and it would all *work* in the context of the series.

I re-watched S4E4 tonight on Netflix, 3000 Crooked Miles. Whereas before it was a mono mix it's now mixed in some sort of weird 5.1 mix. The voices were all coming out of the right speaker with music coming from a variety of speakers. I also noticed when a gunshot occurred that the "sound" of the gun never came out. Has anyone noticed anything like this?

Wow, what does translate to per season? Something like $8 per, right...amazing! And let's not forget, the complete set is the only way you get to see the remastered transfers of season 10.

Did they remaster Season 10?

 

I always thought that Season 10 was the only Season who was not remastered and therefore has a miserable picture quality.

 

I don´t buy a complete series only to have Season 10 remastered....

Yup, when they released the complete series, they included the remastered version of season 10. The individual season 10 is not remastered

It is too bad the studio did not pay respect to all those people that bought the individual sets by allowing them purchased a re-master season 10 and/or the extra disk. I bought all the indivudal sets as such I have zero interest to double dip for the extras and/or the remaster 10 season.

 

It is too bad the studio can not find away to released the bored I hung herself episode as it is over 40 years since it aired. I realize there are issues with this episode, but the reality this is a different time as such we are already seeing people try to duplicate jackass stunts. The bored she hung herself stunt is not likely to be duplicated in this era!!

As someone who has got the first 9 series of Hawaii 50, I am not keen to buy the boxset just to get season 10 remastered.
However, I was looking at one of my suppliers for DVDs and BDs and I noticed they had 2 different copies of season 10 available.
There is one with a UPC code of 097368121348 released on 14 December 2010 and another
032429117410 released on 17 August 2012.
If this info is right, is it at possible that a remastered set had been quietly released?

If I could get a remastered Season 10 as a stand alone, I might be interested - unless I hear that a Blu-ray set is up and coming right around the corner.

I'm in the same boat. I'm at Season 9 as well, and will probably purchase an unremastered Season 10 rather than spring for the complete series.
