Editorial Reviews

Created by veteran television writer/producer Philip DeGuere (Simon and Simon, JAG, NCIS), the syndicated action series Air America bore only a passing resemblance to the 1990 feature film starring Mel Gibson that shared its title, but definitely delivered small-screen action during its sole season of 1998-99. Lorenzo Lamas toplined the show as Rio Arnett, owner of and pilot for Air America, a transport airline that ferried all manner of passengers and goods--no questions asked--from a small and turbulent South American country. In reality, Rio and his partner Wiley (Scott Plank) were undercover agents, and used their company to tangle with various international bad guys on behalf of the State Department. The show's relatively low budget made for some less-than-spectacular scripts and special effects, but the prerequisite intrigue and mild sex appeal (thanks to co-stars Diana Barton and Lamas' real-life spouse, Shauna Sand Lamas), as well as nice turns by guest stars like Juliet Mills, John Beck, Richard Lynch, and Lamas' former Renegade co-star Branscombe Richmond (in "High Noon in Costa Perdida") made for an entertaining if undemanding hour of TV. The six-disc set includes all 22 episodes that aired on American television, as well as four that did not, including the original two-part pilot, "Betrayal" and "Safe Passage" (in the States, the series debuted with its third episode, "The Lost City"), and the two final episodes, "The Cure" and "The Miracle." The DVD is presented in its original full-screen format, and, unfortunately, comes without any extras. --Paul Gaita

5.0 out of 5 stars wish it lasted longer December 6, 2011
Format:DVD
I am a huge Lorenzo Lamas fan, and while this is not on the scale of Renegade I very much enjoyed it and have watched the series several times over.

Rio and Wiley are great working together. ANd it was nice to see Lamas in something other than Renegade. Highly recommend for a pretty good action series. My only complaint on the series is that the last disc contains the "Operation Jaguar" pilots, which I dind't realize until after I'd watched the rest of the series, so I'd say start with the last disc first to get the background THEN go to disc 1.

5.0 out of 5 stars GREAT SHOW!! October 10, 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I watched this series in 98 when it came out.. it really is good. Don't listen to the other reviews of this series... It has a great intro with great music. Rio Arnett ( Lamas) and Wiley (Plank) make a great pair. It should have lasted much longer than it did.. but with low budgets and the writing gets bad as it did here with this show. Its no RENEGADE but its not intended to be. Lamas plays a good part.. I would recommend this to anybody who is a Lorenzo Lamas fan.

5.0 out of 5 stars I love this show March 14, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This is a wonderful series and Lorenzo Lamas is excellent at Rio Arnett. It is to bad that this show did not continue because there were so many stories that could have been told but they cancelled it before they could go on with the story. If you are a fan of Lorenzo Lamas then this is the series for you. The fact that he really is a pilot himself and flies medical supplies in to third world countries is a plus.
