Trivia

The budget was so small, the production couldn't afford the titular helicopter. All scenes of the actors interacting with Airwolf used a prop mock-up of the aircraft. Reedited footage of Airwolf in flight from the original series did the rest. See more »

A Waste of Time
25 November 2002 | by (Los Angeles, California) – See all my reviews

For many reasons, I found the original "Airwolf" series to be one of the best shows on television. The actions sequences were truly fantastic. Each character developed throught the run of the series.

Season four was a true waste of time. The characters were very weak and shallow, the overall tone of the show diminished. Originally, Only three characters were skilled enough to fly Airwolf. In the new series, it seemed that everyone on the show could fly airwolf, with equal skill.

On the original show, the characters, while flying Airwolf, always wore their helmets. The new version often featured bare-headed, wearing headsets, with no helmets.

The fourth season of Airwolf demonstrated the classic situation of a series being around one year too long. A good effort, but a very poor result.
