Much as I enjoyed the Blue Thunder movie, i'm not sure Blue Thunder could even hurt Airwolf. Airwolf's capabilities still exceed modern helicopters (supersonic)
I enjoy watching Airwolf on hulu but I do wish they had had a bigger budget..but it does have my all time favorite TV theme
yeah it does take some of the fun out when of things when the stock footage gets way too obvious and they are uncreative about.
Prime example when the missiles are fired - cockpit shot of finger on the button, cut to missile firing from left tube. nextime it's cockpit then cut to the missile from centre tube and repeat.
