I finally got around to watching Silverhawks after a conversation with LiamABC. All I can say is I am not impressed and I will not be watching anymore after those opening two episodes. In fact I would rate them as the worst opening episodes of any 80's action cartoon I can think of. The only good things I liked about it were: 1. The concept design of the Silverhawks...sadly none of the actual designs in the cartoon were that great. 2. Some of the villain designs were quite good although look a lot like left overs that would have been better suited to Thundercats. 3. The music by Bernard Hoffer is quite good although it sounds a lot like Thundercats. 4. The animation is quite nice. Nothing spectacular but better than some other 80's shows. The start of episode one with Monstar escaping was quite good but as soon as Hawkhaven shows up it went down hill. I can't really explain why I don't like it and it doesn't appeal to me but I am going to try. To me it was like watching a strange mix up Battle of the Planets, Starzingers, Thundercats and C.O.P.S. but really being too much of a mix up of either show for one particular element from either one to catch my interest. In comparison to any of the four shows I named their is a drastic difference to their opening two episodes compared to Silverhawks as they are exciting and have interesting characters. For any show to be good it has to have interesting characters or at least be exciting. Also the heroes are so bland and generic. The design of Quicksilver is pretty cool but an entire team the same is really boring. Bluegrass had a bit more character but a really stupid weapon and his design doesn't make sense as it would make more sense for his hands to be reversed and have his fingering hand be bare instead of the plucking hand. It's really hard to imagine this show was made by the same people that made one of the greatest cartoons of the 80's. it is no surprise this show never really caught on or had much success. But as I said this is only based on those opening two episodes, maybe it gets better, I don't know...I don't care, but if the rest are like them I really have no interest in watching them.
