Trudy Beekman books the last passage on rigid airship, Excelsior, which runs on non-flammable helium and is the next big thing in luxury travel, but Malory refuses to be outdone by her nemesis. The Captain receives a bomb threat and ISIS is hired to thwart disaster. Malory bogarts a luxury stateroom while the married couple from Hell shares a cramped single; of course, there are stowaways. The menu includes choke sex, Campari Vodka and one semi-indecent proposal from a Sikh. Fiacci knockoffs, an eye patch and a vealy vulva, are only decoration. Will Lana get to visit the Led Zeppelin Suite? Oh, the humanity! The NATO phonetic alphabet (and Wales) will never be the same! Written by LA-Lawyer

A Lot of Not So Hot Air
30 October 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

No one seems to listen to the promotional video because they all think that if a match is lit, the entire airship will explode. It is actually filled with helium as the captain says over and over. Anyway, a bomb threat has been sent in and the ISIS crew end up on the airship. Archer and Lana play a married couple and this, of course, drives Cyril crazy. The fact that every time he goes to her stateroom she is naked and with a different man doesn't help. There are lots of historical jokes (an hysterical, I suppose) made. The byplay with the office women continues to be hilarious as they somehow missed the departure. It's a good episode with Mallory coming on to the captain at every turn. I think the cases worked on are secondary to the goings on that go on. Pretty typical episode.
