Thread: Classic Five-O Episodes Posted

    I stumbled across this while searching for something else:
    https://www.solie.org/alibrary/Hawai...koJIGuLb3Uh4U8

    It doesn't have every episode and as the site states these are from old VHS tapes. It does have Bored, She Hung Herself though the quality is pretty poor.

    Interesting….this particular set of recordings used on the website comes from KDOC in Los Angeles. Many are edited down to 41 minutes (worse edits than even Family Channel). They have the Paramount logo at the end (not the 80s/90s Viacom logo, or the modern-era CBS logo), which places these transfers firmly in the Family Channel 1997-2012 era, where they had the FAM-style remastering (not the DVD/streaming HD remastering used today).

    Both Savage Sunday and Run, Johnny, Run had huge chunks cut out, versus the modern syndication edits where bits and pieces are removed.

    All of the episodes featured fall into the original 175-episode FAM package local stations were using 20 years ago. The site doesn’t have any episodes past season 9. They have the flickering “Bored” transfer as well. Also features “Honeysuckle Rose” from Trouble in Mind, so definitely wasn’t the modern era with the music edits.

    That is a very cool find Brian - makes me want to grab that "Bored" episode from Season 2 and download it for safety. That one is getting hard to come by more and more.

    Even though "Beautiful Screamer" is listed here, you get "The Payoff" when you click on it. I wonder if other links are confused.

    The version of "Bored" there looks like the first one (as per my WWW site, see below) ... except it is extremely bad quality, perhaps having been dubbed several times.

    An early dub of the show looks like it was projected on a wall and filmed with a camcorder. Viewing this is not recommended if you are an epileptic because of the strobe-like flickering. A second dub of the show is more watchable, though the color is faded and the print is not in the best of shape.
