This is a terrific new Sunday night soap. It's late-ish (10 p.m.) start means that it's able to get a lot "closer to the knuckle" than most soaps. Whereas in most soaps the sexual shenanigans are merely implied or taken as fact, in "Mile High" we actually see the protagonists 'getting jiggy' with each other, sometimes with next to nothing left to the imagination. A few of the sex scenes to date could even be classed as borderline soft porn. And the language has a tendency towards being fairly 'Anglo-Saxon' at times, with the "f" word cropping up numerous times in most episodes so far.
The characters are also for the most part quite interesting as well, the hard-as-nails purser Janis and the "camp-as-a-row-of-tents" gay steward Will being particular stand-outs.
It's not arty-farty cerebral fare by any stretch of the imagination, but it's great entertainment and the best possible way to see out the weekend on a Sunday night. Hopefully it will be renewed for a second season once this series ends.
