One of the better shows on television
29 October 2004 | by (Los Angeles) – See all my reviews

LAX is one of my favorite shows. Though the storyline can seem unrealistic at times, it is nonetheless entertaining. And now that it is not competing with CSI:Miami, it might have a chance at 8 on Wednesday. Living in LA and flying out of there on a regular basis, I can tell you that it is a gargantuan and crazy place. Some of the conflict like the international custody battle was somewhat far fetched, but entirely plausible. Overall, I'd give it a 9/10. I think that Heather Locklear and Blair Underwood are a perfect fit for two bickering airport managers. The only strange thing about the show is that the terminal looks nothing like the real thing.....
