Hawaii Five-O: The First Season – Blu-ray Edition

This classic 70s television series has been redone 2011 style. Since the series Lost is no more I guess they figured they had to have at least one series taking place in Hawaii.  Who wouldn’t want to work there, right? Beside the gorgeous scenery you also get plenty of human eye candy to look at. The freshman season could not have been all that bad as it won the 2011 People’s Choice Award for Favorite New TV Drama.
