Goofs

The "jettisoned" passengers freeze immediately on exit to space. In real life this would not happen. The only way to lose heat in space is via radiation which the the slowest way to lose heat. It will generally take about 10-12 hours. See more »

Quotes

Pilot: I'm the pilot; I'm going home whatever happens. The passenger is either you or Mr. Judd or both of you if one of you has eaten the other.

The up and down nature of the show continues, following a downturn last week - this was, I thought, a decent episode.

Whilst getting ready to jettison unwanted things out the back of the ship, it becomes apparent to some of the guests that aspects of the ship aren't real. Including that Captain Clark (Hugh Laurie) isn't genuinely in control of Avenue 5. Believing it all to be an elaborate gameshow, some passengers begin to try and force their way into the airlocks. Judd (Josh Gad) meanwhile fires his captain, and promotes Spike (Ethan Phillips) to the role.

So yes, a few moments of this one made me laugh. Mostly, as I keep saying - the mainstays of Hugh Laurie, Lenora Crichlow and Suzy Nakamura. Rav's space flight, and the realisation about what it all might mean next week was interesting.

It's been a patchy, up and down season that comes to a conclusion next week.
