CBS (ended 1980)
|I recently received an advanced copy of the Hawaii Five-O Season 2 DVD and the set is missing the episode "Bored, She Hung Herself." |
The box states: "The Second Season Episode "Bored, She Hung Herself" aired only once and is not included in this set. Some episodes may be edited from their original network versions."
So Paramount strikes again. Not only is it missing an episode, but the studio cheaped out and used the syndicated versions.
It doesn't matter whether Bored, She Hung Herself is a good episode or not. It is part of the series and should be on the DVD. There is no valid excuse for not including the episode on the DVD. This episode is tame compared to the graphic, violent, foul languaged junk that studios are allowed to make today. No one seems to complain about that crap! Any serious five-o fan should be outraged at this blatant omission, voice displeasure to the studio and refuse to buy this product. That's precisely what I've done.
In addition, if they have put edited episodes on the DVD's, then that makes the set even more worthless than it already is.
That's really odd - My brand new official 5-O series 2 dvd pack contains Bored She Hung Herself. It's right there after Blind Tiger and before Run Johnny Run. Maybe they suddenly stopped making it on future dvd releases.
It's a pretty good episode but not one of the better ones, you guys didn't really miss much. I'll write up a quick review (along with my other exciting entertaining and in-depth 5-O reviews) one of these days.
This episode was aired only once, during its run on CBS. After it aired, the Freemans learned that a person actually used the method depicted to commit sicide. Since Freeman owned the show, he ordered the show banned from future syndication and video release. I have a set of prints that I bought from a seller on iOffer.com. The episode IS in gthat pakage......and I paid only $80 for all 12 seasons!
