I woke up this morning with an email alert from one of my awesome Undercover Special Agents and saw this tweet:
Season 1 DVD news? This news is better than starting the day off with spam, eggs and rice!
Producer/writer JR Orci mentioned on numerous occasions that a lot of footage is edited out of the broadcast episode to fit the 42 minute window, including a lot of Steve/Danny dialog.
Peter is referring to “Sunset On The Beach”, which are publicly open viewings of movies on a thirty foot screen on Waikiki beach in the evening. SOTB has hosted Lost premieres as well as the *huge* Hawaii Five-0’s premiere last September.
The gag reel should be a lot of fun too, with cast members goofing on set…
The next question is a no-brainer: “When will it be released?”
Peter told @FIVE_O_EXTREME, “Soon as I know the EXACT date, I’ll let y’all know.”
Based on previous shows like Lost, I’d guess the release of the season one DVDs (and presumably Bluray) will be near the season 2 premiere.
Looks like there’s a *lot* to look forward to on the season 1 set!
