5.0 out of 5 stars What a Machine!!!, 7 Aug 2007
This review is from: Airwolf: Season One [DVD] (DVD)
This was a truly superb series, featuring a great cast, iconic music and a great premise. This is the first season, and starts off with the 2 part pilot episode (It should be noted that this 2 part pilot is avaialable seperately edited into a shorter Airwolf: the Movie film. That verson contains more violence, sexual references and swearing which are all absent in the more family friendly pilot).

The core cast are as follows:

Jan-Michael Vincent: Stringfellow Hawk
Ernest Borgnine: Dominic Santini
Alex Cord: Michael Goldsmith Briggs III, codename: Archangel
Deborah Pratt: Mariella

The premise is that the government have spent 1 Billion Dollars on a hightech Helicopter (Airwolf) which is promptly stolen in a massacre by its psychotic creator and pilot Dr Moffatt (a great turn by Oscar Winner David Hemmings). The government then turn to reclusive vietnam veteran Stringefellow Hawke who reluctantly agrees. Que the love interest, heartbreak, and climatic recaputure of the helicopter in Libya. Theres a twist though, the government renay on there agreement with hawke who subsequently hides Airlwolf and refsues to return it unless his brother , an MIA in Vietnam is recovered.

Its all very engaging though and Jan Michael Vincent really does engage you.

The subsequent episodes are:

Daddy's gone a hunt'n
Bite of the Jackal
Proof through the night
One way express
Echoes from the past
Fight like a dove
Mad over Miami
And they are us
Mind of the machine
To snare a wolf

All the episodes are self contained and the DVD and usually centre around either the government or Foreign body trying to reclaim Airwolf or Airwolf undergoing secret missions for a secret government organisation called THE FIRM.

Unfortunately the DVD lacks any extras, however it does have a nice layout screen (complete with Airwolf theme tune) and stands up well even today.

Can I just ask, does the sound go funny on the episode where they go over to Russia to bring back the defecting scientist. (Proof Through The Night) I think it is.

On my copy, the dialogue is coming through one speaker and the music and sound FX through the other. As if they've made an error with the mix.

Please could you let me know if you've experienced this or is it just my copy.

Many thanks.
