What’s It All About? This one will make you think if splitting up the family before boarding a flight is a good idea. The Lost-like mysterious drama finds the passengers of Montego Air Flight 828 relieved to land after a turbulent flight, until they learn that their plane went missing five years ago. While the passengers have barely aged a minute, the rest of the world has, and their friends, families and colleagues have mourned their loss and moved on without them. The premise of second chances and a deeper mystery unfolding — there is a significance in 828 — is enough for us to believe this series will take off.
