I grew up with this show but it was deemed too violent for any of the Canadian networks to carry. But now Airwolf is back in my home to stay. I get the shivers every time they start the thing cause you know it's going to blow up something, that and the music has always been awesome. Sylvester Levay has been and always will be a genius. The first season of Airwolf also one of the best is successful because it was dark, mysterious, and the plots stayed within the realm of the almost believable. I can understand why it was cancelled after three seasons, with all those helicopters just for production each episode cost close to a million dollars to produce and in 1984 that was actually a lot of money!
I must admit however that the DVD set was somewhat thrown together. Flipping the DVDs over to save on packaging is a little cheap, that and the menus are not exactly creative. Also does there have to be a preview for other Universal TV programs each time you put in a DVD? The Pilot episode is the edited for television version, and the editing was really sloppy. I much prefer the full movie version, for the music and the character development. David Hemmings does a great insane bad guy super genius, and the editing makes it look as though he's just a sloppy pilot. Being the creator of Airwolf I think he deserves the combat scenes and music score from the original movie.
All in all though, a MUST HAVE for any Airwolf fan, it's like being reacquainted with an old friend. I can't wait for season 2!

Ok, lets be realistic here... This is THE 80's show about a superweapon that is basically unstoppable. Yes we've had this before with Knight Rider but in this case we have the awesome theme music and some excellent acting. (at least concerning the 1st season)
So I'd go out on a limb here and say its the best show of the 80's. However the presentation is lacking....
- Menu design is lacking any color or "life"
- No background music in menu's, no animations
- Poor box design... I can do better in photo-paint
- No attempt at cleaning up the image grain or sound
- 2.0 mono... thats right mono, could'nt you at least give us some sort of half assed stereo? Who does'nt have some sort of sound system in 2005?
- The pilot is edited to the TV verison, there is a "movie" verison which I own which contains some swearing and revised music (better music)
+ Its Airwolf
+ The first season is considered the best
+ The Music

For the most part I enjoyed the series and i am considering ordering more seasons as long as they are not too high in price.
