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 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 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?

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!

Jan-Michael had potential but boozed it away.

Greatest American Hero: always enjoyed seeing Connie Selica ;\)

MacGyver was on Netflix stream until recently. I have not yet seen the recent reboot series.

Interstingly, I find watching classic MacGyver worth it to analyze the gizmos he cobbles together. There are basically 3 categories:

1. Can work

2. Might work but skeptical: like when he whips up blasting powder to blast a hole in a wall, he doesn't make nearly enough of what it would really take.

3. Oh heck no! Building a two person ultra light from bamboo, trash bags for the wings for wind shear, a giant fan blade for a propeller and a miniature cement mixer for the motor. That mixer wouldn't have the horse power needed to sustain flight.

Six Million Dollar man season sets available cheap on Amazon. Some of them contain crossover episodes with the Bionic Woman.

If you search online you can find the script of the never produced finale episode of the D&D cartoon
