Summary: Cancelled too soon! - 80's escapist entertainment.
Comment: I remember watching this TV series when it first aired, thinking it really wasn't very good. Then "Air Wolf" came along to steal the thunder away, and before you could say "whisper mode", Blue Thunder had been cancelled.

Looking back, this series really wasn't a failure at all. Granted the first few episodes are very repetitive and poorly written, but the series soon hits its stride. When compared to other 80's tv series such as Knight Rider and the A-Team, Blue Thunder fits in nicely. If you're a fan of the feature film, or just looking for escapist entertainment, 80's style, I think you'll enjoy this series!

Only eleven episodes, so I wouldn't pay more than $20! Wait for a good deal!

Summary: Too Short a Series
Comment: I have truely enjoyed going back and watching this series on DVD. The only bad thing about the series itself was that it was too short lived. It was a family friendly version of Blue Thunder and the interaction between the stars was wonderful. Dick Butkus and Bubba Smith are a hoot to watch.

As far as the quality of the disks, I have no complaints. The picture and sound was wonderful and they are a pleasure to watch. However, if you have a widescreen tv you will have the annoying black bars on the sides unless you expand the picture since this is in 4:3 aspect. The only bad thing I have to say about the set is that there are no extras, which would have been nice. Some behind the scenes on the helicopter or even some series interviews would have been nice.

Summary: Excellent Action Series Cancelled Way Too Soon
Comment: A very enjoyable series with a memorable cast and catchy theme tune. The Sony Prints are outstanding quality and do justice to this show.
In my opinion it could have lasted at least three seasons. All of the elements were there for success.

Summary: A short lived series on DVD!
Comment: It's nice to see Blue Thunder, the TV series, released on DVD, in spite of the fact it lasted only one season. It was one of the great action-packed shows to come out of the 1980s. You had James Farentino who piloted Blue Thunder. A very young Dana Carvey, who was the co-pilot, who was always referred to as "JAFO" (Just Another Frustrated Observator.) You also has Dick Butkus & Bubba Smith, two ex-football players, who appeared in the series as well. I like other reviewers here would love to have Street Hawk, another short lived series, come out on DVD as well.

Summary: Good 80's Tv Classic Show
Comment: At last on Dvd.I remembered this show from my early days.I loved as A Team and Knight Rider were broadcasted these days.Only 11 eps were made after its cancellation due to similar series Airwolf in the rival CBS.Based on the 1983 movie of the same title it features an advanced chopper capable of doing 360ΒΊ loops,whisper silent mode record audio and video,turbo thurst and fires 6,000 rounds per minute in her gatling cannon.Of course is armor plated and bullets ricochets when fired to it.

The Dvd is Ok with good audio and video quality however no special features are included nor cast or series info.

Hope Street Hawk that also was premature cancelled arrives soon on Dvd.
