Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Perhaps the best way to describe this hit British television show is to use one of that country's most enduring slang terms: "cheeky." Mile High is a silly, giddy program about the perpetually randy flight crew of Fresh!, a budget airline that serves holiday-goers across Europe. The nominal hero of the series' first season (2003) is Fresh's newest member, Marco (Tom Wisdom), whose role is to react incredulously to the hijinks of the veteran crew and passengers. Said misadventures include an underage girl who accuses him of assault (Episode 5), a documentary team that threatens to expose the crew's lustful escapades (Episode 8), Marco's father's heart attack--which occurs after he sleeps with one of the crew (Episode 9), and Marco's bedroom romp with a royal relative (Episode 12). It's rude but lighthearted fun, and offensive only to those who'll find the sort of subject matter bandied about on cable television beyond the pale (though the amount of nudity--both male and female--exceeds anything seen on Stateside TV). All 13 episodes of the debut season are included in the four-disc set; devoted fans will undoubtedly be disappointed to discover that no supplemental features are included. -- Paul Gaita

Product Description

Fasten your seatbelts for this sexy and original drama series, which follows the lives and loves of six airline cabin crew from sharing a house in London, to traveling across different countries and time zones. Filmed on location in London and Spain, MILE HIGH is a potent mix of fast paced drama and comedy. Young and sexy, they work hard and play even harder! Gripping, glamorous and entertaining, it is a show that is audacious and irreverent, with some serious moments and real characters at its heart.

What do the pilots and cabin crew really do to both in and out of uniform? MILE HIGH is the fast, sexy and gripping 13-part drama that follows the lives and loves of an airline cabin crew working for a young budget airline.

Most provocative programming on American TV can be found on stations like HBO, FX, and now Showtime. Generally these show tend to be racier and edgier than the network counterpoints, but usually they are more interested in pushing buttons and have ambitions beyond being just plain "fun." Well, "Mile High" is an example of a British television import that wants to be nothing more than trashy entertainment. Premiering on American TV on BBCAmerica, it was coupled with a far more successful show--the blissfully wicked and over-the-top "Footballer's Wives" (which frighteningly enough is being adapted for US TV--I dread the result). "Mile High" doesn't hold a candle to the delicious "Wives," but its aspirations are so modest--it's hard not to get caught up in the lightweight spirit of it all.

Set in the fictional world of "Fresh" airlines, "Mile High" follows the misadventures of an attractive and highly sexualized crew of flight personnel. No need to go through the characters one by one, there are your typical types present--the overbearing supervisor, the outrageous gay guy, the womanizer, the reformed bad girl, the adulteress, and the girl who's unlucky in love. Most of Season One concerns itself with the introduction of a crew newbie, Marco, to the wacky goings-on. There is loads of gratuitous nudity (British TV doesn't share the same prudery), sexual conquests, drug use, partying--just about anything lewd and lascivious. Man, who doesn't want to see that? Have you already ordered this DVD?

But make no mistake, just because this outrageousness is fun to watch does not make this a particularly good TV show. When the proceedings are loose and bawdy, the entertainment value is high.

4.0 out of 5 stars Total guilty pleasure TV viewing January 4, 2007
Format:DVD
Think Sex and the City meets Friends and the OC and everyone works for an airline...this is pure gratuitous fun from the UK! Sexy smart looking youngish Brits all work for a discount airline and have a wild time in the friendly skies. Great for a good weekend of brainless soapsy entertainment:)

5.0 out of 5 stars Addictive, over-the-top drama about life in the skies! January 13, 2009
Format:DVD
Mile High is one of those rare shows where the overly dramatic antics and soap-opera style situations don't seem rediculous.

Mile High focuses on the cabin crew and pilots of the Fresh Airline both on and off the job. Emma is trying to move on after being abandoned by John, who returns after six months wanting her back. Will is interested in new boy Marco, who secretly is attracted to ice queen Janis. Jason begins to have feelings for Leehan who is raising a son no one knows about. KC is struggling financially to provide a home for her friends and her extravegant ways.

The show only lasted for 2 seasons and Season 1 can exist independant on it own merits. I could not stop watching this series. I had to rent it twice before my purchased copy arrived.Mile High - Season 2, Vol. 1Mile High - Season 2, Vol. 2Coupling - The Complete Seasons 1-4

5.0 out of 5 stars Miles Above the Rest August 1, 2007
Format:DVD
If you're looking for a fun sometimes dramatic show, look no further than the cabin crew of Fresh!

Janis, Lehann and Will are my favorite characters, but there are plenty more to love as well.

Janis has quickly become one of my all time favorite stern-but-super-sexy TV characters, portrayed by the wonderful Jo-Anne Knowles.

The Theme by Hooverphonic (The World is Mine) is a catchy theme that is now my cell ringtone.

I loved Series one, and enjoyed the Second Season even More.
