Hawaii Five-0 is one of my favorite shows from back in the day, and Jack Lord created an iconic character.
I will say that I think there is a lot of excellent TV today, it's just that very little of it is on the major networks.

The remake is a decent one hour popcorn fare in reruns.

I don't know if I would buy the complete series set on dvd (or bluray).

As you may be aware the DVD set (and syndication re-runs) excludes the forever banned S2 episode "Bored, She Hung Herself" that originally aired on January 7, 1970, after the sad copycat death.

I downloaded that episode when I was going through the whole series on DVD, recorded it on DVD-R, scanned a real season 2 DVD label, changed the wording on the label, printed the label on the DVD, put it in a single DVD case and printed a cover based on the season 2 DVD covers. So I have the complete Hawaii Five-0 set, with a seven-disc second season.

I have been watching the Old Hawaii Five-0.
Starting with season 1. And going to watch all 12 seasons.
I will watch two episodes a night. The real 5-0 was on when
TV was worth watching.
I went through the entire series starting ten years ago, but I limited the viewing to one hour/week. (Exception: Watched two-parters at one viewing.) I felt watching more than what was originally shown "diluted the experience." Took a little more than 5 years to watch the entire series.

Remarkably creative-- now you have that banned episode to enjoy anytime you like!

Well, "enjoy" may be a strong word for what others have called a really bad episode. But it does satisfy the "completist" in me.
You're right-- I just said "enjoy" because I figured you'd want to have it to see anytime you like; still, that label is indeed very creative.

Bad or not, I wish they included it. It's well past its controversy date and I've never seen it. And I hate being one episode shy of the complete run.
