Bored, She Hung Herself: Directed by John Newland. With Jack Lord, James MacArthur, Zulu, Kam Fong. The "lost" episode of Five-O, it has never been made available in syndication. A woman is found hanged to death. The suspect is a young man who uses a yoga technique where someone hangs themselves (but survives). All is not what it appears.
While Five-O is not really a rare show, seeing as all 12 seasons have been rerun numerous times and are available on DVD in Region 1, one episode remains rarer than the other 278: a season two episode entitled "Bored, She Hung Herself". Aired January 7, 1970, it revolved around Five-O investigating the death of a fitness guru's girlfriend by performing a yoga exercise that required asphyxiation.

CBS also could have released Bored She Hung Herself with a later 5-0 set, as was the case with Gunsmoke, when a 2nd season episode, How To Cure A Friend (1956) was accidentally replaced by a fourth season episode, How To Kill A Friend (1958). To remedy the problem, CBS put both episodes on the disks for Gunsmoke, season 4.
Police claimed that she hung herself, but committing suicide on something this small has been considered impossible by experts and the public alike. Jessica Johnson was found hanging from a mailbox. Police believe she committed suicide, but others think this was a coverup.
Is there a lost episode of Hawaii Five-O? Technically, no. Someone in the comments asked why the episode is missing from the DVD release. The supposed suicide of Wanda Parker, beautiful daughter of a prominent psychiatrist, seems to involve her bearded malingering boyfriend. Why is the episode so controversial that it has never been seen again since its original broadcast? According to Mrs. Leonard Freeman wife of the late creator of the show , speaking to some fans at the Five-O convention, someone tried the yoga-related hanging technique depicted in the show and killed themselves. As a result, perhaps because of litigation this is my opinion, not Mrs. I am certain the original film elements are safely tucked away in a vault with the rest of the series. Furthermore, copies of the episode have been in the hands of private collectors, apparently sourced from a rather poor quality 16mm print of the episode that includes CBS identification and network bumpers. I would also be interested in knowing whether or not the episode was syndicated internationally, if there are any international fans of Hawaii Five-O reading this. I suppose the liability concerns are legitimate, but what are the odds that somebody would try the auto-asphyxiation technique based on a year-old TV episode, when one so inclined can probably find detailed, step-by-step instructions on how to do it with a Google search? Thanks for looking into the mystery. There are things that the boyfriend says that are almost in code. They definitely have an obscured meaning that only those who are into that scene would dig, man. I agree that the supposed reason it is being withheld seems weak but perhaps the matter was never actually investigated by anyone with the authority to decide to allow the episode to be included in the Season Two DVD set. Somebody saw that it had been pulled from the syndication package and decided not to bother worrying about it. Or, maybe there was a lawsuit and the episode cannot be released commercially. So nobody really knows why it is being withheld. Eventually, the entire series was made available again. If someone did die by trying this technique or whatever it is,that in itself may be the reason it is not shown. If you go to iofffer. It used to be on youtube but has been removed. It was in poor condition and is one of the weakest episodes. Even Ebay dors not carry it as a bootleg. There is video seller from southern Queebec that sells the complete Hawaii Five-O series for under dollars, including this missing episode. This episode is a bit projectory. This might be a good idea. Let me know what you think H50 fans. Or a bonus episode with the new H50 series when they go to DVD. I thought the episode was a snooze fest though. In some of those cases, only one episode brought the total episodes over To remedy the problem, CBS put both episodes on the disks for Gunsmoke, season 4. You can see that boring ,bored she hung herself on youtube. I read it was a woman who tried it and died. The ironic thing is, they could just as easily permanently shelved this episode merely on the grounds of being godawful. Completely worthless. I have to agree with the comments, it was a particularly poor episode. I have not provided a link as I expect CBS, or some other interested party could have it removed soon. I guess this was due to s codes and mores. Moreover, I never saw McGarrett go so far out of his way to exonerate a suspect. Especially in the early seasons. Remember, this was season 2. It seemed tacked-on because the director wanted a part in the show. No Boswell listed. Who is left to sue if the episode is released on DVD, or other media? John Newland did not play the Boswell character in that episode. Newland never appeared in the show at all. Maybe they could put a disclaimer on this particular episode with a viewer discretion.
