Hawaii Celebrates "Hawaii Five-O" on DVD

The Honolulu Star-Bulletin had no fewer than 4 features on Sunday talking about the recent DVD release of the first season of "Hawaii Five-O." Plus, there was a DVD launch party on Friday at the Ilikai Hotel (featured iconically in the show's opening sequence). That just shows that Hawaii folks still regard the series as the pinnacle of television production in Hawaii--in its employment of local actors and crew, its portrayal of Hawaii's unique local culture, and its ability to command the attention of U.S. audiences for 12 years.

From Honolulu Star-Bulletin, 3/11/07:
Five-O forever
Moody, retrospective and wistful for ‘Five-O’s’ Honolulu
Almost 40 years later,'Five-0' still packs a punch
