It's hard to fault this show! There is a broad range of are believable and personable characters, portrayed with solid acting. I appreciate the understatement and subtlety with which the tension is built, which gives the few action scenes a lot of impact. The story lines feel fresh, and each episode has a distinct character.
The premise clearly borrows heavily from Ice Pilots (I wonder if Buffalo Airways are actually involved?), but it hasn't taken long to grow into its own identity. This is now one of my favourite shows of the last few years.
Deserves at least a 7, and a renewal!
