"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!!!

Finally, Season 2 is coming to DVD!!!

"After months and years of waiting, it is finally coming! Ever since the release of Season 1, Airwolf fans such as myself have only grown more hungry for the next couple seasons. Myself and many others, I'm sure, actually signed an online petition begging Universal to release Season 2 on DVD. I'll be the first to sign for Season 3 when the time comes.
Airwolf was the most brilliant show of all time - and it was truly ahead of its time. Even today, a slick, black, Mach 1+ attack helicopter with retractable chain guns, rocket pods, turbo thrusters, infra-red imaging, etc. would be an incredible addition to our military. This show stands apart from others because instead of a man being the hero, it is a machine. It is a show that when you watch it, you think to yourself, I've got to get one of those - and you sit in awe, salivating, as you watch it in action.
Even now, I'm salivating at the thought of purchasing Season 2. I recommend this show for anyone looking for a great 80s action series. I would give it 4 thumbs up if I could. Instead I'll give it 5 stars."

"Airwolf may have seemed like a show about a miltary helicopter who could do anything. Piloted by Stringfellow Hawke (Jan Micheal Vincent-in his finest acting hours) and Dominic Santini (Ernest Borgnine), this helicopter saga had a human touch.
This second season Airwolf came into its own. The first season defined the character and the copter. The second season had great character storylines, which was less on hardware and more of emotional software
These 22 episodes were intelligent well done TV..I can wait for season three which comes out soon

"And it's not quite as good as season one. But that's okay, it's still a worthwhile addition to an Airwolf fan's collection. The overall quality has its moments but isn't up to the level of the first set of episodes. Marella was taken out, only recurring in the rare guest appearance, which was too bad, since she was a great character and knew as much about Airwolf as anyone involved. Caitlin O'Shaughnessy was a fine addition, nice and spunky, well-played by Jean Bruce Scott. Archangel's character suffered, acting less like a suavely pleasant yet potentially dangerous spy with ambiguous loyalties and more like an ineffectual whiner. Worst was the change in String's character from wounded loner with a fear of romantic entanglements to a man-about-town with plenty of female action.
One positive note was there was a fair amount of emphasis on the story arc involving St. John Hawke when there wasn't undue focus on human interest plots. (Blame the network for interfering with Bellisario's vision for his show.) And though there were groaners like Out Of The Sky(a country singer's hubby is out to get her---who cares?), there were also great episodes, such as Moffett's Ghost, where the evil inventor of Airwolf returns as a computer virus trying to destroy his creation so nobody else gets to use it.
Overall, though not as good as the first season, this DVD is a must for those interested in having the entire series done by CBS. It does include the introduction of Caitlin's character and there's more St. John stories than the first go-round. We recommend this as a slightly flawed but still essential part of the phenomenon that was Airwolf, and a great trip back to the best part of 80's TV.
The episodes are Sweet Britches, Firestorm, Moffet's Ghost, The Truth About Holly, The Hunted, Sins of the Past, Fallen Angel, HX-1, Flight #093 Is Missing, Once A Hero, Random Target, Condemned, The American Dream, Inn at the End of the Road, Santini's Millions, Prisoner of Yesterday, Natural Born, Out of the Sky, Dambreakers, Severance Pay, Eruption, and Short Walk to Freedom. (There are a good deal more than the first season, since this is a full as opposed to a half-season.)"
