5.0 out of 5 stars The ultimate action season of the 1980s
Well, how many have dreamed of the day when all three CBS seasons of Airwolf were released on DVD... and the 3rd Season - until now - was the Holy Grail as it hadn't been released before. Packaged in some nice minimalist artwork continuing on from the previously-released style from the 1st and 2nd Season Box Sets there are, however still no extras which is a shame...

3.0 out of 5 stars The end of the road
This is the third season of Airwolf which started great (series 1), started to flounder (series 2) and was nearly completely shot by series 3. By this point series creator Donald Belisario had left (unhappy with the changes and series 2), so had Deborah Pratt (who had married Belisario in ine interim) . The budget had spiralled (resulting in more stock footage usage) and...

5.0 out of 5 stars The ultimate action season of the 1980s, 24 Nov 2007
This review is from: Airwolf: Season Three [DVD] (DVD)
Well, how many have dreamed of the day when all three CBS seasons of Airwolf were released on DVD... and the 3rd Season - until now - was the Holy Grail as it hadn't been released before. Packaged in some nice minimalist artwork continuing on from the previously-released style from the 1st and 2nd Season Box Sets there are, however still no extras which is a shame.

But even though this season had many "domestic" episodes to try to reign in the budget, the producers also produced some really superb spy (there's more Archangel this season than last) and hardware gems such as 'Airwolf II', 'Where Have All The Children Gone?", 'Fortune Teller', 'Day of Jeopardy', 'The Deadly Circle', and 'Kingdom Come' being the top episodes. The downside to the 3rd Season is that it contained two of the most universally hated scripts 'And A Child Shall Lead' and 'Tracks' which should have been give to the production team next door - KNIGHT RIDER.

Overall though, the action quotient in this season was well up on previous years and it produced some of the best melodic, synth music by composers Sylvester Levay and Udi Harpaz of the series in my opinion including the superlative chase music for 'Annie Oakley' and 'Hawke's Run'. To complement these three seasons of the show, you may be interested in the official digitally remastered re-release of the acclaimed Airwolf Themes soundtrack which has been released from late December 2007 on Apple iTunes... just Google 'Airwolf Themes' for full details from the official website.

5.0 out of 5 stars 3rd Season Airwolf is the ultimate action season, 25 Nov 2007
Well, how many have dreamed of the day when all three CBS seasons of Airwolf were released on DVD... and the 3rd Season - until now - was the Holy Grail as it hadn't been released before. Packaged in some nice minimalist artwork continuing on from the previously-released style from the 1st and 2nd Season Box Sets there are, however still no extras which is a shame.

I personally prefer buying the Region 1 DVDs because then you get to hear the audio & music at the original speed intended (unlike the British Region 2 PAL releases where everything is sped up slightly due to the frame rate conversion from NTSC - PAL). If you've a chipped multi-region player - like the majority in the UK - then this is the one to get. Plus the dollar is cheap as chips at the minute, so buy direct from Amazon.com

But even though this season had many "domestic" episodes to try to reign in the budget, the producers also produced some really superb spy (there's more Archangel this season than last) and hardware gems such as 'Airwolf II', 'Where Have All The Children Gone?", 'Fortune Teller', 'Day of Jeopardy', 'The Deadly Circle', and 'Kingdom Come' being the top episodes.

5.0 out of 5 stars Echoes from the Past, 16 April 2009
This review is from: Airwolf: Season Three [DVD] (DVD)
Adding Airwolf package (vol. 1, 2 and 3) to my DVD collection was a great experience and a wonderful trip back in time, to the 80's and 90's when this series was shown on TV. Swift action, well-written characters and - last but not least - the breathtaking flying machine. If you ever dreamt of making an inside loop with a fully armed helicopter attacking all the bad guys in the world, this is a must-have to your DVD collection.

This review is from: Airwolf: Season Three [DVD] (DVD)
This is the third season of Airwolf which started great (series 1), started to flounder (series 2) and was nearly completely shot by series 3. By this point series creator Donald Belisario had left (unhappy with the changes and series 2), so had Deborah Pratt (who had married Belisario in ine interim) . The budget had spiralled (resulting in more stock footage usage) and Jan-Michael Vincent was having very public personal problems. All this served as the nail in the and ratings plummeted, which matches the qulaity of the show. Unfortunately throughout series 2 and 3 it served to contradict series 1, the end result is a rather disjointed mess with very little connection to Series 1

The episodes are:

The horn of plenty
Airwolf 2
And a child shall elad
Fortune Teller
Crossover
Kingdom Come
Eagles
Annie oakley
Jennie
The deadly circle
Where have all the children gone
Half pint
Wildfire
Discovery
Day Of Jeopardy
Little Wolf
Desperate Monday
Hawke's run
Break in at Santa Paula
The girl who fell from the sky
Tracks
Birds of paradise

This was the final series for the original cast, with Airwolf: Series 4 being a total travesty, with only Jan-Michael vincent appearing right at the beginning to kill off his character (the series also didnt have access to the helicopter so all the footage for that series was series 1-3 stock).

As with series 1-3 there are no extras, and the title emnu and screens are identical to series 2 with just a change in colour. Of the 3 this series is the weakest of the lost (series 1 being the best), but is still worth buying just for the episode Airwolf 2 which sees airwolf battling Redwolf.

This review is from: Airwolf: Season Three [DVD] (DVD)
its a shame that they didnt do another series. More of the reculse super helicopter pilot (string fellow hawk)stories flying missions in his state of art helicopter with his friend mr santini of santini air.Why a shame well in the earlier series you learn about st john his brother who he is looking for and his use of the helicopter in looking for his long lost brother.....but sadly he still didnt find his brother....This was in its day exciting TV and the family watched in anticipation. I found it still good today so may be worth taking a look at it.

3.0 out of 5 stars running out of ideas by now, 15 Oct 2013

the contrived stories which result in a fully armed attack helicopter being useful are scraping the barrel by now. For nostalgic watching only.

3.0 out of 5 stars Almost But Not Quite, 25 Oct 2009

This review is from: Airwolf: Season Three [DVD] (DVD)
The lack of the Belisario "touch" is obvious.
Not at the same level as seasons 1 & 2.
Only for really die-hard "Airwolf" fans.
