Storyline

Rio and his buddy Wiley are supposedly just ordinary pilots working for the Latin American air transport company Air America. In truth, they are undercover secret agents receiving their orders directly from the State Department in Washington. As part of their duties they investigate international crime, protect witnesses, rescue people who need rescuing, and occasionally get themselves out of messes that their boss, Furman, keeps getting them into as he tries to line his own pockets.

Another waste of time

I can't believe the lead actor Lorenzo Lamas went from doing something as good as Renegade to something like this. There is no story line at all in this series, the only saving grace is that it does has some rather nice looking women in it. But I'd prefer it if the show had a decent story line. The show remind me a lot of Acapulco Heat but is no way near as good, or funny.
