    Hawaii-Five-0

    Is there anyone in here besides me who watch or have watched "Hawaii-Five-0"? It usually airs at late nights/early mornings over here, and I really appreciate it, really good series.

    This night it was about some boat with some criminals on it carrying the plague, oh man, it led to all Oahu being isolated, but Steve McGarret, working from his quaranteen, got those criminals to die at last.

    Well, Hawaii-five-0 is from the times before Ricki Lake had trashed down American TV, American TV was still clean and qualitative at this time.

    "Hawaii Five-O aired from September 1968 to April 1980" - http://www.mjq.net/fiveo/

    Wow! That's quite some time, I had no idea of that! I can totally understand it though. The episodes I watch now are from 73, hehe, so there are apparently some more to come, and I sure look forward to seeing them.

    >>> But you forgot to do the rapid canoe paddling actions.

    No I didn't, it's just that the video sequences use up to much bandwidth on the server.

    Same is true of the close up, fish eyed Boeing 707 landing sequence and the rapid stepped zoom-in sequence of the statue.

    New Zealand says that and they have completely naked people on the six o'clock news, for a story about a power plant built on using waves. The excuse is that the naked people were surfing. Shut it.

    In America they have 6 specialty porno PPV channels, sure, but you're told they're there, and can block them very easily. If you don't want it, it's not rammed down your throat. That's what freedom is, Einstein.
