From Amazon.co.uk

Airwolf appeared only two years after Knight Rider and, perplexingly, the same year as the short-lived Blue Thunder series. However, creator Donald P Bellisario had spent more than a little time in fully conceptualising this series. Although the format allowed for stories-of-the-week, a B-plot always ran as background motivation for the individual tales. This was a trick Bellisario would also use to good effect later in Magnum P.I. and Quantum Leap. The hook that sustains the audience here is an extremely bitter sub-plot: Stringfellow Hawke (Jan-Michael Vincent) is a peculiar anti-hero to root for since he is effectively being held to ransom and doing the same in return. His brother St. John is held captive somewhere and until his release the Airwolf chopper is Hawke's to keep hidden and use under the covert instructions of "Archangel". His best friend Dominic Santini (the ever-appealing Ernest Borgnine) is a surrogate father figure caught up in the family history. All this pre-determined angst means this is never a show that plays itself for laughs. Very specific character flaws are upfront from the beginning. We are hammered over the head with the idea of Hawke being a tortured intellectual; hence the cello, log cabin retreat and inability to smile. Of course the real star is the spurious technology showcased in the Mach One helicopter armed to the teeth and able to defy the laws of physics on a regular basis. As the mid-80s looked increasingly to the lighter side in most television successes, Airwolf is a rare display of aggression. Justice is fought, but dig only a little way and the moral motivations are often in question. Toward the end of its third season things began to lose coherence and after a year's pause the show was magically resurrected with an all-new cast. It didn't last. --Paul Tonks

Product Description

5.0 out of 5 stars At last 28 Nov 2001
By A Customer
Format:DVD
Airwolf, along with Knight Rider, Blue Thunder and StreetHawk took a hi-tech machine and made every kid of the time (and a few adults) want one. In the case of Airwolf, it's an armour-plated, supersonic helicopter with enough onboard computer wizardry to give KITT an inferiority complex and sufficient firepower to take on small nations. Despite the shows' low-budget nature and often corny storylines, I grew up watching this and it's lost none of it's magic on re-release. Compared to other hi-tech series from this era, Airwolf definitely looks and sounds the best. An absolute must for anyone over 25 and remembers its initial release on Friday nights on ITV in the '80s (just after 'Play Your Cards Right' if I remember rightly). By the way: Blue Thunder vs. Airwolf? No contest.

5.0 out of 5 stars More Action From The Big Bad Wolf! 22 April 2003
By A Customer
Format:DVD
In my review of Airwolf DVD Vol. 1, I wrote some background on the show itself (hey, take a look at my review if you wish). As stated there, Airwolf was a fantastic show ahead of it's time. And Vol. 2 here give us more fantastic action from Hawke, Santini and most importantly...Airwolf, the Mach 1 chopper that kicks butt!
The first episode on this DVD is 'Mad Over Miami' where Hawke and Santini join forces with Cuban freedom fighters to aid the release of Cuban prisoners. Great great episode!
The second episode is 'And They Are Us'. Hawke and Santini travel to an African nation to prevent a coup but whilst there, Hawke meets an old Vietnam chopper pilot who is now a mercenary and who may know the location of Hawke's MIA brother. A good episode with a sad ending.
The third episode is 'Fight Like A Dove'. In this, Hawke and Santini go up against a Nazi war criminal who has a weapon that may be able to blow Airwolf out of the sky. Another great episode.
Highly recommended.
