An OK Show
9 January 2003 | by (Holland) – See all my reviews

Alright, so most people are at least saying that this was a bad show and at the very most it was the worst they have ever seen. But I can honestly say that this show was OK and even pretty good at times. The acting may not have been the best, but even if it was as bad as most suggest, you can at least laugh at it for the amount of effort the actors put into it. Actually that was why I ever watched it, to be entertained by how bad the show was. The show had a few hot chicks in bikinis and certainly had pretty slick looking guys in it too, particurlarly Wyley Ferrel. The best episode by far was the one that guest starred Branscombe Richmond or better known as Bobby Sixkiller from the Renegade. The way he tries to take control of the Costa Peridia coastline by beating the natives up was just hilarous. Then the feel good factor hits in with Rio Arnett challenging him to a fight for the future of Costa Peridia. Other than that episode, I never really took note of the storylines mainly because they were quite crap. The series ended with something about Rio Arnett's long lost father and I'd say the show hit rock bottom at that point. I really enjoyed the opening intro scene mainly because it was so cheesly American with many big explosions. Of course, Air America wasn't as good as Renegade and it may have damaged Lorenzo Lama's reputation, but at least he can certainly reflect upon his days in Air America that was shot in such tropical and exotic locations.
