Hawaii Five-0 season 10 DVD details and special features.
Hawaii Five-0 season 10 has come home to DVD through CBS Home Entertainment. Here’s all that TV crime drama fans need to know about the Hawaii Five-0: The Final Season box set.
As the title indicates, Season 10 was the swan song for the popular reboot of the Jack Lord TV crime drama. While Steve McGarrett (Alex O’Loughlin) pondered his future, new characters were introduced, potentially setting the show up to continue on without him—but that turned out not to be the case.
So this is the first and only season for Katrina Law (Training Day) as new team member Quinn Liu, with Lance Gross (MacGyver) recurring in two episodes as Lincoln Cole. Conversely, only O’Loughlin and Scott Caan appeared in all 10 seasons.
But is the final season worth adding to your Hawaii Five-0 collection?
Hawaii Five-0 season 10 DVD details
This box set contains all 22 episodes from the final season on five discs, presented in widescreen (as you would normally see them on the HD channels on your TV).
Unlike some earlier seasons, there is no planned Hawaii Five-0 season 10 Blu-Ray release announced, so DVD is the only option for physical media or if you want the special features (Amazon Video has the episodes digitally, but no bonus materials).
For the hard of hearing, there are closed captions/subtitles, but this set is not as accessible for viewers who have English as their second language. The only language supported, both in audio and in the subtitles, is English.
If you’ve been holding out on watching the entire series, though, skip this set; CBS’s press release says that they’ll be releasing a Hawaii Five-0: The Complete Series DVD collection later (date TBA).
Hawaii Five-0 season 10 DVD special features
For the final season of a long-running and popular show, CBS has gone fairly light on the bonus material. The DVD set includes the Magnum, P.I. crossover episode “Desperate Measures” and just two Five-0 specific featurettes.
One is a behind-the-scenes interview with Alex O’Loughlin called “Reflections on Five-0” while the other, “Shorelines,” is a goodbye/retrospective video with the entire cast. They make sense given that this set is all about the show ending, but neither one adds too much that fans didn’t already know.
A selection of deleted/extended scenes and a gag reel complete the set. As with many TV on DVD releases, some of these scenes are fun to see and others, it’s easy to see why they ended up on the cutting room floor.
It’s not a bad collection of bonuses—other studios have put their shows out with a lot less—but it’s still hard not to wish for something a little more substantive given how long the show ran and how much it meant to TV crime fans everywhere.
Hawaii Five-0 season 10 is available on DVD through Amazon and streaming through Amazon Video.
