Funny Airline Comedy is one of the best new shows out there.

LA To Vegas is one of the best new shows for the 2017-2018 TV season. This show is teen friendly with some innuendo but nothing questionable. There is questionable behavior , there is one scene a captain drinks alcohol before going on board to his plane, but he is stopped by the flight crew and passengers. One character is a showgirl in Las Vegas, this is just mentioned in episodes but nothing questionable is shown. There is a scene in an episode where a stewardess is making out with a passenger briefly . This is just in ONE Episode. Teens should be able to handle this wonderful show.

Sharp, zesty, and lots of fun, this workplace comedy takes flight on the strength of great writing, a kicky premise, and appealing characters. The person who had the idea to set a comedy on an airline that makes a weekend Los Angeles to Las Vegas run was a bonafide genius: We've grown used to comedies set in hospitals, backstage on TV shows, or in offices, but an airline setting, where quirky new characters can breeze in and out while regulars endure, has plenty of juice. The (typically) miserable experience of flying also offers a lot of comic possibilities, which LA to Vegas ably milks: warm drinks, delayed departures, tray tables that won't stay put, seatmates who won't shut up.

Viewers will also quickly develop an affection for the show's characters: feisty flight attendant Ronnie, louche pilot Captain Dave, Ronnie's fellow flight attendant Bernard, who has a distinctly Titus Andromedon vibe (viewers probably won't be surprised to learn that one of the behind-the-scenes powers that be on this show is connected to Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt). In the show's pilot, Bernard attempts to explain to Ronnie why she doesn't want a new job working the "JFK route" on a major airline: "The only reason people go to New York is to work, or ugh, to see plays. Las Vegas is a place where tigers are liberated from their dirty jungles, and acrobats can make a living." With jokes like that, we'll be checking in to LA to Vegas on time, every time.
