Hey all, to those that already own this, would you mind telling me how the set is like?

No one didnt get any faults or anything like that?

After my experience with Knight Rider S2, I am some what questionable with Universal releases now

I haven't gotten it yet. But I haven't had any problems with my Knight Rider set though.

I knew I forgot something today when I picked up NewsRadio and Chappelle's show S2.
We're Texas.

I got Airwolf today, but I won't watch any of it until tonight. I only tend to watch one episode a night, and I'm really hoping I have no problems to report.

Talk about poor quality control on Universals part, 3 out of the 4 pictures on the back are from season 4. Which hey I understand mixing season pics happens but its not even the original actors but the actors from when the series moved production to syndication.

Any idea whether the original pilot movie was included and if not whether that will be coming to DVD soon?

The movie is included as far as I know. I'm hoping to get this after next week (gotta get Dukes: Season 3 first)

The two-hour (give or take) TV movie version is included, but not the European version with extra footage and naughty language.

With Magnum, pi, Universal had the pilot in the menu as two episodes, but it played as a single movie when you used Play All. On Airwolf, it's only the two-hour version (which is good).

Greg whats your opinion of the set thus far? I know its bare bones but how is the video and audio? On par with The A-Team?

It's maybe a notch below. I'm not the best judge of video quality, but I'd say there are some scenes that look pretty good, while darker scenes don't fare as well. It's a lot like all of Universal's sets in that the credit sequences look markably worse than the actual episode.

I guess this one has to fall under, "I don't regret the purchase, but..."

I hope Season 2 will look a little better. I don't want the studios to stop putting out older shows that just may not have fared too well after 20 years or so because they don't have the video quality that say C.S.I. has. I would, however, hope that if better masters exist they could be used. I thought Quincy S1 that is 10 years older than Airwolf looked better.

I'm looking forward to Season 2 of Airwolf.

I'm sure it will get here at some point... maybe by years end.

I'm still waiting for Universal to announce Knight Rider Season 3, A-Team Season 3 and Miami Vice Season 2.

I finished this set recently.....the picture looks pretty good for an 80's TV series although there are scenes that could use a little cleanup here and there. I had no disc problems with my set either. One thing that I wished Universal had done though is include some extras with this set....commentaries would be nice, perhaps a few featurettes on the helicopter itself would have been good as well....a missed opportunity in the extras department as usual from Universal.Posted Image Other than that, it's a good set for the fans.
