This is 100% proof entertainment - the lives of a budget airline crew -sexy young people, sex (straight and gay)'n' suntans, jealousy, back-biting and bitchiness, lurve in romantic locations and down 'n' dirty cabin-couplings. It has action-packed punchy story lines, often intense emotional moments, all at a fast pace.
With its frank hedonism and hormone-pumping 20 somethings it perhaps is more realistic than many soaps where older straight laced characters are the voice of wisdom and moderation. Here the characters go off the rails, make mistakes - and pay for all of them. It is life in a insecure and badly heavily disciplined paid job but where the constant temptation and opportunity is to shop, look good and party.
Mile High raises the question why there aren't other adult soaps reflecting the madness - and sadness - raging hormones often create. Also the bear pit of bitchiness that workplaces can be. For many 20-30 somethings it must be quite true to life - much more so than dreary evenings in the Rovers Return.
Like a budget airline itself - it's cheap, it's cheeky, it's brash but the punters keep coming back for more. Top top marks for the makers.
