    I remember Airwolf from when I was a kid but I don't remember any specific episodes. I probably never saw more than one or two. So this is interesting to see them all now, I had no idea what was really going on. I'm trying to decide if Jan-Michael Vincent is compelling or a terrible actor. He kind of goes both ways.


I'll be interested to hear if you think the true star of the series was the helicopter. Wikipedia says it was a genuine, flight-ready air machine that went on, after the series was cancelled, to be an ambulance helicopter in Germany, ultimately crashing during a severe storm. Its crew didn't survive.

    I also picked up the whole series of Greatest American Hero a couple of years ago. Now I did remember a few specific episodes from when I was a kid and it was fun to rewatch. I didn't make it through the whole thing yet though.


I remember that show. I watched it often. But of course I did. He was a superhero and despite the humorous aspect of the series he was serious about using his powers to help people. I had to watch it.

    I would probably enjoy a rewatch of The A-Team. Or MacGyver. I definitely want to rewatch Six Million Dollar Man and Bionic Woman, especially the latter, it's the one I saw more of. I remember her fighting HAL 9000?


I think The Bionic Woman was an important show for American culture. Before the Bionic Woman, there was Wonder Woman (only one year earlier) and nothing else if I'm not mistaken.

    Oh, you know what was good? I picked up the Dungeons & Dragons cartoon a few years ago, that was fun to watch again. I didn't remember all the episodes, especially the one when the main guy decides they should stop screwing around and just kill Venger so he will stop messing up their way home. Dark!


Now that sounds interesting!
