I did not see the first season until now, nearly four years after its first showing in the fall of 2010. I started watching in season two or season three. I have enjoyed most of the episodes since then, but when I saw season one for the first time I was really blown away. Every single episode was absolutely riveting! The action, the excitement, the story lines, and the character acting was all phenomenal! Every episode was both explosive and emotionally moving, and that is a combination rarely achieved in a television series. I loved the characters and the breathtaking Hawaiian scenery! This was clearly the best video set I've ever purchased!
