Created by Donald P. Bellisario (JAG, Magnum P.I.), Airwolf was among the many action-adventure shows of the 1980s that garnered a cult following. Jan-Michael Vincent stars as the improbably named Stringfellow Hawke, a Vietnam veteran still troubled by the disappearance of his brother during the war. Secret government agent Archangel (Alex Cord) approaches Hawke with a unique offer: to help him recover and then become the de facto pilot of the powerful, top-secret helicopter known as Airwolf. With that proposal begins Hawke's adventures, along with his sidekick Dominic (Ernest Borgnine) as pilot of the advanced aircraft. Contains all the episodes from the second series of the show.

Unfortunately the producers of the show started interfering with the show, against the Creators wishes (Donald P Belisaio creator of Magnum, Quantum Leap etc) wanting to make it more family friendly, jazzing up the Theme tune, adding more elecronic sounds to the soundtrack (all detriments) and also adding a female lead(Jean-Bruce Scott as Caitlan O'Shaughnessy)which unfortunately throws the narrative off and makes the show uneven. Whilst not a travesty this season saw it take the Knightrider route with Airwolf less involved in Government issues and more into a sort of dispute settler. All this conspires to detract from all the good work establsihed in season 1. The show also amkes the sin of having some actors from the previous series return in different roles and also of very noticably re-using stock footage.
The episodes are:
The truth about Holly
Sins of the past
Flight #093 is missing
Once a hero
The American dream
Inn at the end of the road
Prisoner of yesterday
Out of the sky
Short walk to freedom
The DVD again has no extras, and the screens are not as nice as series 1. It still has the airwolf theme tune playing but looks like less effort was made for this one.
Relive your youth of childhood and get the sets they are fabulous repros and played in either 4:3 or 16:9 makes no difference to the enjoyment. Since I got this last week Im now on the third time of watching the series. Sad it may be but with scenery and action as well as plots and humor like this all in one show who wouldn't. As for the helicopter, for those of you who can afford the luxury there is a radio controlled scale version of the model that actually flies, member of BMFA be your own Stringfellow Hawke. I got the model and it flies superbly. Guns and ATF pod need adding to it.
