Some of the best stories of the series, but . . .

"Without a doubt "Airwolf-S3" has some of the absolute best stories of the entire series since the unbeatable mini-first season which aired over the first half of 1984. So why only 3 stars? The experience for me - even when season 3 first aried when i was 15 - was tarnished somewhat due to an obviously intoxicated Jan- Michael vincent that seemed to occur "at least" every other episode. It was actually sometimes painful to watch him in certain episodes, his face flushed with booze and even at times slurring his dialog! I was so hooked on the show that i kept up with all the info i could get from behind the scenes - what little i could get at that time with no widespread internet like we have today. Unfortunately i barely had to make an effot as Vincent seemed to make "news" about every other month detailing his latest barrom brawl and onset alcoholic meltdowns. This might sound corny, but it was very heartbreaking in a way for a 15 year old who IDOLIZED this man, and the character he played that i loved and worshipped so damn much. (it got to the point where i would get more excited for a new episode if i saw that Vincent's face was not flushed red in the cheeks because i knew then that he WOULD give a damn fine performance, and more often than not that's exactly how it worked out.)
At that time, with all the news stories and onset interviews - usually in TV Guide - with Jean Bruce Scott and Borgnine- about the problems onset, I learned for the first time that actors are nothing if not human beings just like the rest of us. It was a bursting of the bubble, but damnit i stayed loyal to that show to the very end. [the so called 4th season is NOT "Airwolf" except for the recycled footage . . . GARBAGE, that was.]
In the end it was the amazing story telling and the faultless co-starring cast that made Airwolf Season-3 shine. The sad thing is that it could possibly have been the best season EVER. - and VERY likely there would have been a REAL s4 as it wasn't cancelled until the last possible moment (late april/86?) when everyone realized that Vincent simply could not go on the way he was. Make no mistake that IMO S3, if you are an "Airwolf" fan is something you MUST get for the often brilliant storytelling, acting and ACTION that is crammed into most episodes, but for those fans out there who are around my age when the show orignally aired it will likely bring back some melancholy memories and a few sad "what-if's".

"I was a huge fan of Airwolf growing up in the 80's. I couldn't wait for it to come out on DVD so I could re-live those memories. I wasn't disappointed! Although some people may think some of the special effects are a bit dated, I am not one of them. I LOVE this DVD (and the first two seasons I also bought) and I look forward to watching the shows again and again. Although I do wish there were some extras like interviews with the cast, I would recommend this DVD to any Airwolf fan!!!"
AIRWOLF - Season 3 " Its Coming Quite Fast ...."

"Its coming quite fast!!!! Ever since the release of Airwolf Season 2, I was expecting Airwolf Season 3 to come out in the next year, but the Universal Studios and Donald P. Bellisario (Series Creator) are ready to release Airwolf - Season 3, in less than 6 months, That's Great !!!! I'm sure that Universal should release Season 4 (The Final Season) on DVD very soon.
This DVD set has the Episode "Red Wolf" which has Airwolf put against another Helicopter called Red Wolf developed by The Firm without the knowledge of Archangel.
Even now, I'm excited at anticipating for Airwolf - Season 3. I recommend this show for anyone looking for a great 80's Military Adventure TV series. I'll rate this DVD set 5 stars."
The ultimate action season of the 1980s

"Well, how many have dreamed of the day when all three CBS seasons of Airwolf were released on DVD... and the 3rd Season - until now - was the Holy Grail as it hadn't been released before. Packaged in some nice minimalist artwork continuing on from the previously-released style from the 1st and 2nd Season Box Sets there are, however still no extras which is a shame.
But even though this season had many "domestic" episodes to try to reign in the budget, the producers also produced some really superb spy (there's more Archangel this season than last) and hardware gems such as 'Airwolf II', 'Where Have All The Children Gone?", 'Fortune Teller', 'Day of Jeopardy', 'The Deadly Circle', and 'Kingdom Come' being the top episodes. The downside to the 3rd Season is that it contained two of the most universally hated scripts 'And A Child Shall Lead' and 'Tracks' which should have been given to the production team next door - KNIGHT RIDER.
Overall though, the action quotient in this season was well up on previous years and it produced some of the best melodic, synth music by composers Sylvester Levay and Udi Harpaz of the series in my opinion including the superlative chase music for 'Annie Oakley' and 'Hawke's Run'. To complement these three seasons of the show, you may be interested in the official digitally remastered re-release of the acclaimed Airwolf Themes soundtrack which has been released from 3rd December 2007 on Apple iTunes... just Google 'Airwolf Themes' for full details from the official website."
