"Flight 29 Down... there's been quite afew varying opinions based around this show. Young teens love it, others scorn it claiming that it's a "Lost" rip-off.
But, I hadn't heard ANY of this when I turned on the TV waiting for my episode of "Tokyo Mew Mew" to come on, and I accidentally discovered this.
Yes, the acting can be lacking at times, and some of the lines seem forced, but you become interested in the characters, especially Jackson, and you do start to wonder- whats going to happen to them? All of the characters have a diffrent side. It isn't obvious by the first season alone though. You need to see the second season to notice changes- especially in the characters of Taylor and Eric.
But this chidrens television fare is entertaning, and can be viewed by all ages- I watched it with a 4-year-old, a 13-year-old, a 15-year-old and of course myself (sixteen) heck, even my dad and some older friens of ours watched it with us and enjoyed it. Its not very complex, but it's fun, and very addicting.
For readers, I reccomend getting the books, you get character insight that the TV show doesn't give you."
Great family show!!

"Flight 29 Down is a wonderful family show. I really do not care if it is a "Lost" clone, it has none of the violence and sex associated with Lost, which is an ADULT show. This show is meant for kids, and is great for all age groups. This show teaches kids how to take responsibility, how to deal with conflict, how to "survive", and how to learn to get along with others. The actors are all great, and the show has a great message. I stop whatever I am doing and watch this with my son on Discovery Kids everyday! We are excited it is on DVD, and cannot wait until the movie comes out!"
I Love Flight 29 down!!!

"I don't have the DVD, but I saw the show on network TV & I loved it, loved it, LOVED IT! The acting is great and sometimes things get kinda heavy, and sometimes it's funny. My favorite episode is the one with the shellfish because it's exciting AND funny. My least fav is the one where Mel's secret is spilled because it's too much like a soap opera. Then after 1 season they switched it to cable, BOO-HOO! Flight 29 Down is the most ruling show in the universe!!!"
