Soldiers on Leave
7 September 2017 | by SylSee all my reviews

When the first original series of Hawaii Five O in 1968, thousands of American soldiers were fighting in Vietnam. Hawaii is the perfect spot for them to relax and recuperate from the trauma of war. The episode begins with a soldier looking for his wife on a tour bus. Another soldier shows him his ticket and goes to collect only to get killed in an alleyway. The first soldier seems heartbroken that his wife hasn't come from Wisconsin while he is on leave. The episode is satisfactory overall. The acting was fine as always.
