The end of the road,
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
And a child shall elad
The deadly circle
Where have all the children gone
Day Of Jeopardy
Break in at Santa Paula
The girl who fell from the sky
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.
