So this is about air traffic controllers, and how interesting could a drama about air traffic controllers possibly be? Well, the first episode had me really surprised. I liked it so much I was really excited to keep watching, but just as quickly, by episode 2, I was reminded that yes this is in fact a drama about air traffic controllers, and no that can't possibly be all that interesting. But near the very end the excitement started to pick back up and I was really loving it again, only to find that it fizzled out again with a very lackluster final episode. Surprisingly, this show avoids much of the suspense that one would expect in regards to planes, i.e. crashing, and goes almost out of it's way to remain as tame as possible, though I actually appreciate that because I hate melodrama, and I don't want to be scared of flying for the rest of my life, which I suspect is the very reason they wrote it this way. I actually rather enjoyed the series overall, but it still is a drama about air traffic controllers.

Edit: After watching this. I discovered that it's actually a sequel to a drama called Tokyo Control. I was able to watch it, and it was rather decent itself, but I still prefer this one, Tokyo Airport more, mostly because I think it has a better cast, and because being set more in the actual air control tower lends a more real and urgent feeling than the larger central control room setting in Tokyo Control. But had I seen it beforehand, I think I would have been a little less impressed with this one because it reuses a lot of the same type of emergency situations, and having already laughed a bit at the concept of a drama about air traffic controllers, I would have seriously questioned the need for a sequel, though in all fairness I would have been pleasently surprised, as infact I am now.

As expected, jdorama always digs up many story aspects and this is one of the story as an air traffic controller. Interesting to see the new technologies and the coming up problems on how to handle them. Whole drama connected by one line story, quite enjoyable to see...

Fukada Kyoko didn't kill the drama. Halfway through the drama...but this is way better than the glamorous cum emotional turmoil plot in Good Luck!
