First off, I want to assure everyone out there that this is not going to be a review so much, more like an "Airwolf Editorial". I think that I can speak for many people when I say that this show was one of, if not, THE show that us late 20s / early 30s types miss the most from the 1980s. It was THE show that used the "Super Vehicle" concept (calm down, all you Knight Rider fanboys out there, I know that this show was two years after K.R., but Jan-Michael Vincent vs. "The Hoff"? Airwolf vs. K.I.T.T.? Please...) This show, unlike most of the other 1980s swill that appealed to me when I was in grade school, STILL appeals to me. Granted, there are continuity errors, military aircraft and vehicles are sometimes named incorrectly, the sometimes cheesy acting and plots, and the dated Cold War mentality. If you strip all the bad stuff away, you are still left with a show that was casted more or less very well (Ernest Borgnine RULES!!! He was the ultimate buddy / father figure that has yet to be topped in ANY show), GREAT flying footage, and a KILLER soundtrack. Hey, I'm 30 years old, but when I hear the synth-driven title score, I still grin like I did back in '84. Watching the show now evokes an odd mix on nostalgia and the grim knowledge of what happened to two of the main stars. J.M. Vincent faded into obscurity fueled by alcoholism, and the chopper later crashed and killed her entire crew in the early 1990's. I could go on and on, but I'm sure that between my thoughts and the thoughts and reviews of others here on Amazon, those who know nothing on Airwolf will have a very clear picture of what this show was all about. BTW, Donald Dube, Battlestar Galactica was produced by Glen A. Larson in the 1970s. Also, if any suits from Universal are reading this, DO NOT wait almost two years before releasing Season 3!!!
