Product description

Product Description

Three episodes of the aerial Eighties action series. In 'Sweet Britches', Hawke is taken prisoner while attempting to rescue a former colleague from Vietnam. 'The Truth About Holly' sees Hawke and Dominic come to the rescue when Dominic's neice Holly is intimidated from a Mexican mobster. In 'Firestorm', Hawke and Dominic turn to an alcoholic ex-pilot for help when they are captured by a military fanatic.

From Amazon.co.uk

Airwolf appeared only two years after Knight Rider and, perplexingly, the same year as the short-lived Blue Thunder series. However, creator Donald P Bellisario had spent more than a little time in fully conceptualising this series. Although the format allowed for stories-of-the-week, a B-plot always ran as background motivation for the individual tales. This was a trick Bellisario would also use to good effect later in Magnum P.I. and Quantum Leap. The hook that sustains the audience here is an extremely bitter sub-plot: Stringfellow Hawke (Jan-Michael Vincent) is a peculiar anti-hero to root for since he is effectively being held to ransom and doing the same in return. His brother St. John is held captive somewhere and until his release the Airwolf chopper is Hawke's to keep hidden and use under the covert instructions of "Archangel". His best friend Dominic Santini (the ever-appealing Ernest Borgnine) is a surrogate father figure caught up in the family history. All this pre-determined angst means this is never a show that plays itself for laughs. Very specific character flaws are upfront from the beginning. We are hammered over the head with the idea of Hawke being a tortured intellectual; hence the cello, log cabin retreat and inability to smile. Of course the real star is the spurious technology showcased in the Mach One helicopter armed to the teeth and able to defy the laws of physics on a regular basis. As the mid-80s looked increasingly to the lighter side in most television successes, Airwolf is a rare display of aggression. Justice is fought, but dig only a little way and the moral motivations are often in question. Toward the end of its third season things began to lose coherence and after a year's pause the show was magically resurrected with an all-new cast. It didn't last. --Paul Tonks

Format: 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.

It is about time that this classic series made it to DVD (and before region 1 for a change) and the format,sound & effects are great,the episode's are laid out in production order and come complete with the small trailer at the beginning that usually ran the week before on tv. If you needed proof that you could fall in love with a machine check out the helicopter it is awesome!!!!!!. the story is basically about a super- helicopter that is stolen (twice <see the movie>)by its pilot and carry's on where the film left off however these are three episode's from series 2 when the storylines became more character driven but the ariel scenes are still stunning with not one computer generated effect in sight and the music is still brilliant now and brings back a lot of memories. All i can say is I WANT MORE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!.

I enjoyed this, but I was disappointed because despite being called "Volume 1", this disk starts at episode 12. I was expecting to see the pilot episode and was disappointed. That said, this was a lot of fun. Definitely worth a watch.

Speed, Thrills and Corny but acceptable lines make up this DVD version of Airwolf the indistructable Helecopter. The picture and sound in this version is spot on, clear and defined. This really brings home the excitement of the original.
