Another hit from the 80s – it seems that everything 80s is suddenly cool again. Well, I for one did not find this series cool back then and has not improved with age. But if you enjoyed series like The A-Team then this might be right up your alley. If you don't remember (or are too young) then the series was about a talented airplane pilot who is working for a secret government division who undertake missions all over the world. The pilot has been equipped with a top-secret and high-tech defense helicopter called Airwolf. Makes sense, doesn't it? The pilot is at the same time is searching the world for his long-lost brother. The series was nominated for some Emmys (??) and the star playing the lead role, Jan-Michael Vincent, began drinking heavily and the series was cancelled after its third season.
