Hawaii Five-O

All the King's Horses - S2-E10

Audio problem: When McGarrett and Danno pull away from the curb in McGarrett's big black Mercury, the tire-squealing sound effect begins before the car actually starts to move. (Doesn't happen unless you're flooring it and "peeling out," which they're not.) (00:41:50)

Kiss the Queen Goodbye - S2-E25

Audio problem: At the Governor's pageant, a group of young children sings and dances to ukulele music. But the song is just a little too noticeably dubbed in: none of the kids' lips are moving. (00:30:10)

The Second Shot - S3-E3

Audio problem: Probably due to poor sound pick-up outdoors so near the ocean, much of the dialogue on the beach house patio is noticeably overdubbed. The sound is often out of sync with the actors' lips. (00:39:00)

Show generally

Audio problem: Throughout series: "Hawaii Five-O's" favorite sound effect was squealing tires, and the effect was nearly always added whether McGarrett's big black Mercury actually "peeled out" or pulled away at a normal speed. More than once, the tire squeal sounded when the car was sitting on beach sand. Nice trick - if you could do it. But alas, you can't "burn rubber" on a beach.

The Banzai Pipeline - S6-E16

Audio problem: In the film left behind by the killers, the two men in the picture can be heard talking - but their lips aren't moving.

Three Dead Cows at Makapuu (1) - S2-E23

Audio problem: The landing jumbo jet's tires start making skidding noises before they've actually touched the ground. (00:13:45)

3,000 Crooked Miles To Honolulu - S4-E4

Audio problem: During McGarrett's second visit to question the professor, in the midst of their conversation, something off-camera makes a very loud thump. Professionals that they are, Buddy Ebsen and Jack Lord carry on with their lines as though nothing has happened. But this looks just a bit odd, because you wonder why their characters aren't curious about the noise. (00:34:10)

Mother's Deadly Helper - S6-E22

Audio problem: Chin says "Telex from Washington"; Steve says "Good, good". Clearly overdubbed. Watch - their lips don't move. (00:40:20)

Samurai - S1-E6

Audio problem: When McGarrett receives a phone call in his office while talking with Chin Ho, he picks the receiver up, but the buzzing ring continues for a few more seconds. (00:41:15)
