What were they doing!?
9 January 2008 | by See all my reviews

I caught an episode of this woeful series during an early morning bout of insomnia. It was excruciating to see such appalling acting involving lines that must have been written by someone with a third grade education and delivered by 'actors' (and I use the term in its loosest possible sense) who were so bad they were embarrassing. People say that Australia used to produce some fine television series but I am afraid that the memory is playing tricks. We produced excrement and this is a prime example. It makes "Plan 9 From Outer Space" look professional.

Purportedly about the loves, lives and intrigues of the personnel of an airline, the closest it comes to getting off the ground is the repeated stock footage of an aircraft taking off each time there is a pause for a commercial break. All other scenes are in a studio and involve sets that are as cheap as they are unconvincing. Judging by the number of episodes that were made, we Australians prove once again that we will watch the most abysmal rubbish simply because it is Australian!
