Nice concept, poorly executed.
21 January 2014 | by (Texas, United States) – See all my reviews

The concept of this show is brilliant. It is not intended for aviation geeks which I appreciate. My only problem is that the execution is poor most of the times; doesn't mean I won't watch it. The acting in the early seasons shouldn't be called acting. I have a problem with mistakes like an aircraft rotating when the pilot call V1. Sound effects are awful most of the times; it's disappointing because you can get better sound effects using a simulator. I wish they did not voice act the CVR recordings and the ATC conversations, at least not in every episode. The show actually can help some people overcome their fear of flying. They show the aftermath of the accident and how findings prevent further accidents. The interviews are well made. I noticed that most of the time they show rare footage. It's also nice that they sometimes present incidents when nobody got injured, if you don't know the story and skip the show's annoying intro, it's nice when you find out that everyone came out alive. If you like aviation, you know this show. If you fear flying, try it, it might help.
