'....this briefing is from file A56-7W. Classified TOP SECRET.
Subject is AIRWOLF-a mach one plus attack helicopter with the most advanced weapons system in the air today.
It's been hidden somewhere in the western United States by it's test pilot Stringfellow Hawke (Jan-Michael Vincent).
Hawke has promised to return AIRWOLF only if we can find his brother St John, an MIA in Vietnam. We suspect that Archangel, Deputy Director of the agency, that built AIRWOLF is secretly helping Hawke in return for Hawke's flying AIRWOLF on missions of national concern.Stringfellow Hawke is 34, a brilliant combat pilot and a recluse since his brother's disappearance. His only friend is Dominic Santini (Ernest Borgnine), whose air service is the cover for their government work. With Hawke and Santini flying as a team, at speeds rivalling the fastest jets, matched by unmatched firepower, AIRWOLF is too dangerous to be left in unenlightened hands. Finding it is your first priority.....'

In addition to that, the Second Season is when Jean Bruce-Scott joins the case & crew as Hawke(Jan-Michael Vincent) and Dom's(Ernest Borgnine)spunky fellow pilot(Caitlyn O'Shaunessy), which made the episodes of AIRWOLF more interesting and enjoyable than the First Season along with AIRWOLF showing off more features too.
Therefore, I think this is the second best season of AIRWOLF that made its debut in January of 1984, but the Third Season is even better than the first 2 seasons throughout AIRWOLFs whole 2 1/2-year run on CBS, despite the fact that this show didn't last very long and started getting a drop in ratings during this 1984-1985 Season which resulted in AIRWOLF's cancellation in the Spring of 1986 which was when KNIGHT RIDER was cancelled too.
It was also interesting seeing guest stars in this 1984-1985 Season like
*James Whitmore, Jr. in the "Sweet Britches" episode before his co-starring days as Hunter & McCall's ornery fellow officer (Det. Bernie Terwilliger)on the police drama HUNTER
*Jared Martin in the "Santinis Millions" episode during his co-starring days on DALLAS
*Mills Watson in the "Eruption" episode after his co-starring days as the doofus Deputy Perkins on SHERIFF LOBO
*Lance LeGault playing a crooked Sheriff in the "Sweet Britches" episode during his co-starring days as the ornery Army nemesis(Col. Decker) on THE A-TEAM & his co-starring days as Magnum's disgruntled Navy nemesis(Col.Green)on MAGNUM, P.I.
*Jennifer Aniston's father(John Aniston) in the "Short Walk To Freedom" episode before his co-starring days on DAYS OF OUR LIVES
*Anne Lockhart in the "Random Target" episode after her co-starring days as Sheba BATTLESTAR GALACTICA
*Nick Campbell in the episodes "Prisoners Of Yesterday" and "The Inn At The End Of The Road" after his earlier co-starring days as THE HITCHHIKER, which was of course before Nick Campbell was replaced by Page Fletcher
*Jeffrey McKay during his co-starring days as Magnum's gullible Navy buddy(Mac Reynolds)
*Noble Willingham in the "Natural Born" episode before his co-starring days on the police drama WALKER TEXAS RANGER
*Martin Milner in the "Severance Pay" episode after his co-starring days on ADAM-12
*David Graf in the "Sweet Britches" episode during his co-starring days in the POLICE ACAMEDY flicks
*Arte Johnson in the "Severance Pay" episode after his co-starring days on the GONG SHOW
I also couldn't help finding it intriguing how Jared Martin and Joseph Ruskin not only both guest starred in the "Santini's Millions" episode of AIRWOLF, but they coincidentally also happened to both guest star in the "Knight Of The Drones" episode of KNIGHT RIDER that same season.
Therefore, we used to be able to watch Super-Autos every weekend back in the Winter of '85 since ABC had STREET HAWK on Friday nights at 9PM, CBS had AIRWOLF on Saturday nights at 9PM, and NBC had KNIGHT RIDER on Sunday nights at 8PM which all coincidentally just happened to be Universal owned TV shows that were all filmed at Universal Studios in Hollywood on top of that even though the supercar series KNIGHT RIDER, this superchopper series AIRWOLF, & the short-lived supercycle series STREET HAWK were all in competition with one another & despite the fact that STREET HAWK had stole a lot of viewers away from AIRWOLF & KNIGHT RIDER, but then STREET HAWK hit a speed-bump after only 9 weeks since it didn't get the ratings ABC wanted which was probably due to the fact that STREET HAWK was too closely related to KNIGHT RIDER & AIRWOLF since it gave viewers too much of the same thing every week, giving us too much competition, & redundancy since they all premiered too soon after one another on top of that since KNIGHT RIDER debuted on NBC in the Fall of 1982, AIRWOLF debuted on CBS in the Winter of 1984, and then lastly STREET HAWK debuted on ABC in the Winter of 1985, but had tanked & cancelled in the Spring of 1985 with no 2nd Season underway.
This season also reminds me of the days when CBS's motto was "CBS: We've Got The Touch", since that was their slogan on CBS from September of 1983 thru August of 1986. The only problem I have with this AIRWOLF-SEASON 2 DVD is for some reason it freezes and skips on the "Santinis Millions" episode and the episodes didn't come with a brief summary of each episode displaying their original air-dates unlike the AIRWOLF-SEASON 1 DVD.
For instance, the original air-dates to each of these 1984-1985 Season episodes on CBS was
10/13/84-THE TRUTH ABOUT HOLLY
10/27/84-SINS OF THE PAST
11/17/84-FLIGHT #093 IS MISSING
11/24/84-ONCE A HERO
1/12/85-THE AMERICAN DREAM
1/26/85-INN AT THE END OF THE ROAD
2/9/85-PRISONER OF YESTERDAY
3/2/85-OUT OF THE SKY
4/13/85-SHORT WALK TO FREEDOM
By the way, I just got word that the Shout Factory will be releasing short-lived STREET HAWK out on DVD on Tuesday July 13th, 2010 which should give all you high-tech TV program viewers something else to look forward to.
