5.0 out of 5 stars Welcome to DVD Airwolf!, 21 April 2003
By A Customer
This review is from: Airwolf: Sweet Britches/The Truth About Holly/Firestorm [DVD] (DVD)
Well, finally, Airwolf has came to DVD. This DVD came out in mid-2001 but I didn't actually buy a DVD Player unti late 2002-and this DVD is the reason why.
Airwolf was a show ahead of it's time. It aired during the Cold War and was a dark show. It wasn't big on humour (which was a good thing)but it had plenty of intrigue, politics, betrayals etc and reflected accurately the real world where not everything is black and white and the good guys don't always wear white hats. Airwolf was a Mach 1 chopper which travelled round the world and in each episode, usually came up against either a plane of some sort of a helicopter (although not always). Airwolf had fourteen firepower options ranging from cannons to nuclear tipped strike missiles. It could outrace the fastet jets and go higher than most jets. It had an onboard computer with several features and was invisible to radar. In short, it was one bad dude (if a helicopter can be called a dude).
The pilot was Stringfellow Hawke played by Jan-Michael Vincent. Hawke was a moody and reclusive Vietnam veteran whose brother was MIA (missing in action). In the pilot, Hawke had retrieved Airwolf for the U.S. Government after it had ended up in Libya; however, rather than give it back, he kept it as collateral, the condition being that he would give it back to Uncle Sam if they could find his brother. Michael Archangel was a senior agent in The Firm (suspected to be the CIA but never actually referred to as such)and he covertly gave Hawke missions to fly all over the world. Joining Hawke was his avuncular friend Dominic Santini. Together, they kicked butt.
The first episode on this DVD is 'Sweet Britches' which is a second season episode introducing a female character known as Caitlan. Perhaps one of the best episodes of the entire series, this sees Hawke and Santini going up against a corrupt sherriff.
The second episode is 'The Truth About Holly'. I cannot say too much about this great episode without giving stuff away. Let's just say that some strange goings on are happening and nothing is what it seems. I can say no more I am afraid...
The third episode is 'Firestorm'-another fantastic episode. This time, Hawke and Santini go up against a disgraced former U.S. Army General who plans to launch a nuclear missile at Russia.
I highly recommend this excellent DVD!

This review is from: Airwolf: Sweet Britches/The Truth About Holly/Firestorm [DVD] (DVD)
It is about time that this classic series made it to DVD (and before region 1 for a change) and the format,sound & effects are great,the episode's are laid out in production order and come complete with the small trailer at the beginning that usually ran the week before on tv. If you needed proof that you could fall in love with a machine check out the helicopter it is awesome!!!!!!. the story is basically about a super- helicopter that is stolen (twice <see the movie>)by its pilot and carry's on where the film left off however these are three episode's from series 2 when the storylines became more character driven but the ariel scenes are still stunning with not one computer generated effect in sight and the music is still brilliant now and brings back a lot of memories. All i can say is I WANT MORE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!.

4.0 out of 5 stars Pretty Good, but not exactly volume one, 17 Jan 2006
This review is from: Airwolf: Sweet Britches/The Truth About Holly/Firestorm [DVD] (DVD)
I enjoyed this, but I was disappointed because despite being called "Volume 1", this disk starts at episode 12. I was expecting to see the pilot episode and was disappointed. That said, this was a lot of fun. Definitely worth a watch.

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely Fantastic, A long awaited release on DVD, 10 Jan 2002
This review is from: Airwolf: Sweet Britches/The Truth About Holly/Firestorm [DVD] (DVD)
Speed, Thrills and Corny but acceptable lines make up this DVD version of Airwolf the indistructable Helecopter. The picture and sound in this version is spot on, clear and defined. This really brings home the excitement of the original.

3 good episodes brought back childhood memories. These 3 don't feature the guy in the white suit with the eye patch so not classic ones, but still fun.
