Tonight, on a very special Airwolf...

My NetFlix queue just served up the first DVD of Airwolf. Cheesy acting, effects that are acceptable when you account for the 1984 airdate.

Kickin' soundtrack from the era that brought you one synth hit after another. (See also: Miami Vice.)

I just watched the last episode on the first DVD:

...featuring a 12 year old Shannen Doherty. At that age she really couldn't act, but little was required of her. And really, any show that has a monstrous helicopter AND knows not to ask too much from Shannen Doherty is something special.
