Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Jan-Michael Vincent stars in Airwolf as Stringfellow Hawke, who, with trusty sidekick Dominic Santini (Ernest Borgnine), embarks on perilous missions for a top secret agency known as The Firm, which in turn allows him fairly free rein as he searches for his long lost brother. Vincent, then 40 years old, was still a year or two away from ruining his career with substance abuse problems, but his work here is hardly of Emmy-winning caliber; indeed, it's a lazy performance pretty much devoid of emotional resonance. Borgnine, on the other hand, is always reliable, but even the former Oscar winner (in 1955, for Marty) can't overcome Airwolf's procession of cardboard characters (especially the villains) and credulity-challenging scripts, which find our heroes traveling to a Laotian prison camp, battling nuclear terrorists in California, rescuing the president of a South American banana republic, investigating a religious cult, fending off jungle cats kept on a Texas hunting ranch, and saving a country singer from the nefarious machinations of her manager-husband, among other silliness. In fairness, creator-executive producer Donald Bellisario (who also brought us Magnum, P.I., Quantum Leap, and JAG) and his team make an effort to inject a human element; there's an episode in which Dominic is arrested for murdering his faithless wife, and a couple that find the guilt-ridden Hawke searching for his brother, Saint John (pronounced "Sinjin"), who was presumed lost during the Vietnam War when Stringfellow left him in the jungle. What's more, considering its relatively ancient pedigree, technology-wise, the effects work isn't bad, and there are some cool moments when the Airwolf helicopter does what it does best (i.e., blow stuff up).

It's unlikely that anyone will fondly look back at Airwolf as one of television's finest moments. That doesn't mean that this five-disc set containing all 22 episodes from the series' second season (1984-85) won't find an audience eager to re-live the adventures of a super high-tech helicopter and the renegade flyboy who pilots it (heck, even Knight Rider, featuring David Hasselhoff and his talking car, has its adherents). Nonetheless, low expectations are definitely in order for anyone who wasn't, say, ten years old when the show was on the air.But overall, the show lacks a strong vibe, a recognizable sense of style and pace to draw viewers in and make believers out of us. Not terrible, not terrific, Airwolf is just sort of there. --Sam Graham

Product Description

Get ready to take off for action and adventure as all 22 one-hour episodes of Airwolf Season Two soar on to a spectacular five-disc DVD set for the first time ever! Cruise the skies once again with Airwolf, the cutting-edge, high-tech surveillance and defense helicopter of the future, and Stringfellow Hawke (Jan-Michael Vincent), its reclusive renegade pilot, as they touch down on dangerous secret missions from Afghanistan to the jungles of Central America. From drug runners to dambreakers to demented businessmen, there's no one who can hide from the Airwolf team's high-tech gadgetry and fighting power. Co-starring Ernest Borgnine and Alex Cord, this suspenseful and daring Emmy-nominated series from TV producer Donald P. Bellisario (Magnum P.I., Quantum Leap) is sure to be a thrill-ride fans won't want to leave!

5.0 out of 5 stars It's About Flippin' Time!!! December 27, 2006
Format:DVD
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. Read more ›

4.0 out of 5 stars The Three A's --Action, Adventure and (Good ) Acting April 16, 2007
Format:DVD
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

5.0 out of 5 stars Finally, Season 2 is coming to DVD!!! September 22, 2006
By Iceman
Format: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.

3.0 out of 5 stars Season Two Is Here At Last.... February 25, 2007
By Dumb Ox
Format:DVD
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.
