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!
