Later seasons were renamed The Black Sheep Squadron.

Special features are absent, not even a voice over.
The transfer quality is excellent with an aspect ratio of Full Frame 1.33 to 1.
The audio is English only in Dolby digital 2.0 Mono.
The box set includes 3 discs.
Love and War
The War Biz Warrior
Deadliest Enemy of All Part 1 & 2
Devil in the Slot
Five the Hard Way

Poor Little Lambs
Last One for Hutch
The Fastest Gun
The series is loosely based on the actual exploits of the late Col.Greg "Pappy" Boyington, credited with 28 "kills" during the war and winner of the Congressional Medal of Honor (CMH). A true American hero.
All in all, a fun testosterone romp.
Perhaps Universal will release Season 2 in one complete package next go around. And a voice over by one of the actors or producers would be a welcome edition.
Glad vol. 2 is out

"..now lets have Season 2 so we can finely watch the whole series! I couldn't hardly wait to get this DVD open when it came today. I've always enjoyed this show and will hopefully get the final season SOON. Come on guys. You must have the rest all ready to make on DVD! :) I have the books too, but the show is great. Follows the real Pappy loosely, but hey, it's still fun to watch. The plot keeps moving and the action seans are well done. When firing the maching guns in the plane however, the real thing doesn't vibrate like on the screen. I think it just adds to the action. Keep the good TV shows like this one comming you guys. THANKS"

"Along with other fans of this show, I'm glad that finally after a 2 year wait Vol. 2 was released on DVD.
I bought this title a few weeks ago and must say that even though I'm very happy to have this show on DVD I'm also a bit disappointed in this DVD release out of the following reasons:
No digital restoration of the picture (but I can live with that)
What bugs me the most is that 5 episodes were crammed on each of disc 1 and disc 2 but disc 3 only holds two episodes. I think they should have divided it evenly up into 4 episodes per disc that way the studio doesn't have to compress the episodes so much and have a better picture quality. This might be a point that should be taken under consideration if Universal plans to release Vol. 3 of this show on DVD.
No specials on the dvd set.
The show itself receives 5 stars, but the DVD release only 3 stars because of the reasons mentioned above."

"It was as I remembered when it was first on television. This irreverant look at life as a marine pilot, was a roitious adventure. Greg 'Pappy' Boyington bent, broke, shattered the naval regulations every chance he could. although far fetched at times, the series held true to the spirit of the book.
The ONLY complaint is that it takes 2 purchases to recieve ALL of season one. (who are these guys? Columbia House??)
When is the second season going to draw its' sights on the populas??"
