Therefore, the USA Network decided to revive this series in the Winter of 1987 with the original cast & crew completley written out this abbreviated 4th Season with only Jan-Michael Vincent appearing in the 1st transitional episode for a last time when Dominic Santini(Ernest Borgnine) is killed off in an explosion & gets replaced by Michelle Scarabelli as Dom's niece(Jo Santini)who inherits Santini Air from Dom; the hard-nosed Michael Archangel(Alex Cord) was said to have suddenly been assigned overseas with the FIRM and got replaced by Agent Jason Locke(Anthony Sherwood)from a government agency called "The Company", but had no mention made about Caitlyn which was replaced by Air Force Major Mike Rivers(Geraint Wyn Davies).
Additionally, Hawke's long lost kid brother(St. John Hawke)who had been missing in action since Vietnam is suddenly revealed to be alive & well, having been working for many years under deep cover for American Intelligence & Locke's predecessor(Archangel) knew where St. John was the whole time and was just using the recluse Stringfellow to control Airwolf in the original series that ran on CBS from 1984 thru 1986.

however, the transfer is the WORST i've EVER seen. sure, the show was shot on video tape and not film, but so was ST:TNG and it looks like a pristine HD transfer compared to this mess. the noise, the grain, you almost have to just listen to the show on your computer and not watch it. it's the nosiest thing i've ever seen. my old VHS tapes i made when it was on USA in 1987 look BETTER than this DVD. how is that POSSIBLE?
UNIVERSAL, if you're going to invest the money to find the tapes, make the transfers, and license the content, at least put the TINIEST EFFORT into cleaning up the print!!!
but, if you're a fan like me, you'll probably want it on your shelf with the other three seasons anyway...
and they know that.
I watched the first episode, and although there we're a few shots of Jan-Michael Vincent, they we're about the highlight of the entire episode, less the cheesy red Airwolf graphic when commercials we're obviously inserted when run on the USA Network in 1987. I'll concentrate on 4 areas, video, sound, missions(episodes) and character acting.
Video: Now, I didn't watch it on an HD TV, I have one but its not hooked up to a DVD player, but I truly think it wouldn't have made a bit of difference, the pixel quality is excellent on the one I mainly watch, and man could you see about every pixel on many shots. The video was horrendous, like most said, stock footage from Seasons 1-3 that was just put in, it didn't even match some of the missions. The lair was like 1980's computer geek's dream with whole setup similar to another show that shouldn't have been cancelled, Street Hawk from 1985. But, the lair was not consistent with the way it was after the end of Season 3, it was gawdy and way overdone, all of it so fake looking, just like the setup inside Airwolf itself.Read more ›
