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.

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.
