This is probably not the most deep and meaningful viewing I have done it my life, but as someone who likes planes and Gary Sweet it was nice easy viewing. I am not sure if i'm going to be tarred and feathered for saying this, but this series was original to begin with as well as acting as a platform for rising star Martin Henderson (great in The Ring) The script was good and really did ascend above the normal soppier rubbish we sometimes get on TV. The characters did have a tendency to be cardboard cut-outs, but they were acted out so endearingly that we still enjoyed them.
You could do a lot worse than give this a go.
