The sixth season of "Hawaii Five-O" is presented in 1.33:1 full screen, just as they aired back on television during the 1973-1974 season. There is some noise to be had, and at times episodes look a bit grainy. Shimmering also occurs here and there, too. But color saturation is pretty filling, detail is rather solid and fleshtones look good. The episodes look clean too for the most part. Good stuff all around, and probably better than you'd expect. 

 

"Hawaii Five-O" is presented in glorious English Mono, and the tracks are pretty solid if straightforward. Everything is audible, and I did not detect any hissing, pops or any sorts of audio defects. Dialogue comes in clearly, the sound effects are not distorted at all, and the instrumental musical cues - including the iconic theme song - sound good too. Fidelity is also remarkably high, which did surprise me. These tracks don't really set any standards, but for a television show in mono, they rank pretty supreme. 

Spanish Mono tracks for all the episodes are included, while subtitles in English, Spanish and Portuguese can be accessed on the discs. English closed captions are available through your television, too.

 

Episodic Promos for each episode are available to view. 

 

Six seasons in now, "Hawaii Five-O" still remains a bare bones affair on DVD. Given their age, the episodes look and sound above average. Fans of this classic series should look into a purchase; otherwise the merely curious will be fine with a rental.
