Storyline

Harley Random is an ambitious, take-charge runway chief based at LAX, the 5th busiest airport in the world. Harley is frequently confronted by her rival, terminal boss Roger De Souza, as each jockeys to be named the new director of the airport while working together to solve everything from bomb scares, to VIP arrivals, drunken pilots and roaming pets. Rounding out this group of airport staff are Tony, the suave Airline Passenger Coordinator, who does his best to sooth frazzled nerves; Customs Agent Betty, who along with Immigration Officer Nick and LAPD Officer Henry Engels help keep the airport safe in an increasingly complicated world.

"LAX" is a drama series, and I use the term lightly, wrapped up as a 45-minute hip-hop music video. Not as thoroughly absurd as HAWAII but that's not saying much. The premiere episode ran the gamut of A to B on the believability scale – giving us heaping doses of every possible airport movie cliché we've been privy to since the days of black and white television. Over the top theatrics, sophomoric writing, choppy editing and unnecessary time-lapse photography all add up to an hour of mind-numbingly, boring television. If this is the best the boneheads at NBC/Universal can offer up as first-rate entertainment then were all in for a very long and miserable television season.
