That David James Elliot was able to escape Canada and make a success of himself on JAG is truly amazing.
It's been many long years since I watched 'Fly By Night', where (oh gee; I nearly called him 'Harm') Elliot's character 'Mack' played the hotshot pilot of a company called 'Slick! Air', owned by Tweed's character, Sally Slick.
Slick! was always struggling one way or another; mostly financially.
As a chartered airline company with one jet, a pilot, owner and (what did that French guy really do again?) Slick! Air was usually one client away from being permanently grounded.
There was obviously supposed to be some unresolved ...tension between Mack and Sally, (with two 'attractive' leads, this was formula and cheese rolled into one) but I don't think it was ever resolved before the series was cancelled.
One thing that sticks out is part of the show's theme, which ended with the seductive words: "You think you're so slick..." I guess since I can't recall much more about the show and only fleeting bits and pieces from two or three various episodes means it had average writing, average acting and less-than-average production values. Typical of Canadian television.
