Volume 3 Featuring The Mach 1 Chopper That Kicks Butt,
By A Customer
This review is from: Airwolf: Volume 3 - Moffett's Ghost/Severance Pay/Hx1 [DVD] (DVD)
Well, Airwolf vol. 3 features more action from the brooding Hawke, the cuddly Santini and my favourite helicopter, Airwolf.
I could complain that the various DVD releases feature episodes out of sequence but seeing as some episodes are better than no episodes at all, I will ignore that.
The first episode on the DVD is 'Moffett's Ghost', an absolutely gripping episode. I'll backtrack for a minute. In the pilot episode, Airwolf's creator-a Dr. Charles Moffett-designed Airwolf and then went mad and went to Libya. Hawke and Satini travelled to Libya, took Airwolf and killed Moffett. Everythings okay, right? Wrong! It would seem that Moffett had programmed a virus into Airwolf which would be triggered if Airwolf didn't receive a code after several months. In this episode, Airwolf is out of control, it is firing on it's own country's jets and doing whatever it wants-and the pilots are at a loss as to what to do next. This is a brilliant episode and the end scene is just phenomenal as Airwolf does something absolutely amazing (which I won't spoil).
The second episode is 'Severance Pay'. An employee retires from 'The Firm' but is denied retirement benefits. In revenge, he gives top Firm secrets to the media and Hawke goes after him to try and make him see the error of his ways. But who is really the bad guy in this episode? Watch and find out.
The third episode is 'HX-1'. Hawke believes his MIA brother is in the States and believes he is behind the theft of a new helicopter that can outrace any other chopper. Has Hawke's brother turned bad?
Three great episodes from a fantastic show!
