Television TV

Airwolf

Airwolf was a frighteningly powerful combat helicopter bristling with guns that was stolen by test pilot Stringfellow Hawke. Hawke stole Airwolf and hid it in the desert so that he could negotiate with the government to get them to find his brother who went missing in action in Vietnam.

Another one of the TV programs of the era that featured freelance soldiers of fortune (like The A Team). This time Hawke would bring out Airwolf now and again to fly an unofficial mission of national importance at the request of the The Firm.

    Despite production gaffes (misrepresenting F-4 Phantom footage as just about any other aircraft on a weekly basis), Airwolf rocked the 80's in a way only The A-Team, and Knight Rider could.

    I remember typing in the sequence on an early nokia to compose the theme tune as a ringtone ( before the days of mp3 ). I was the coolest geezer with my Airwolf ringtone !

    I remember my brother being crazy about this show. He watched every week without fail. Me - being a girly and 3 years younger than him - not so crazy on this show.

    Once upon a time, Saturday afternoon TV was mundane and predictable. Then there was AIRWOLF !!! A sleek black (with a white underbelly) death machine that could give any challenger a good kicking. Even before I'd ever heard of the hypnotically beautiful Jean Bruce Scott, I knew that I was witness to what would become a very happy childhood memory. I thought to my self "Years from now, when I'm in my early 30's, I shall remember airwolf" --- Ren ---

    Great concept, ruined by Jan-Michael Vincent, who employed a mumble-and-scowl delivery in lieu of actual acting talent. The fourth season, filmed in Vancouver, may have been lacking in the special-effects department, but was an improvement simply because he wasn't in it! Curiously, the new main character was played by Barry Van Dyke, who had previously starred in 'Galactica 80' - yet another "continuation" which was universally excoriated by fans of the original show. Gotta admit, regardless of cast, that huge helicopter appearing from behind a handy building, was one hell of a punchline. However, at that time I was acquainted with a scientist who worked for the military, and would laugh hysterically at the technical errors (which she said were many!).
