Default Get these mother F-ing twilightzones of this mother F-ing plane!

The 80s were not kind to youth culture or fashion.

Anyway, this episode seemed like 70% penny for your thoughts (OS S2) 30% terror at 20000 feet. I do like the whole "twilight zones on a plane!" theme but seeing the 16 year old kid who looked 21 cream over his piddly personal radio made me laugh- I imagine this poor characters brain would melt out of his ears if he had ever seen an iPhone.

On top of that I couldn't buy the idea that a man who had lost a family in a plane accident would want to inflict that awfull suffering on hundreds of other families just to spite the airline responsible.

To conclude, A for effort D- for execution.
