Ugh, just stay away from aviation
2 March 2016 | by ericnhallSee all my reviews

The who am I part of this episode is OK. But, the basic plot of the Black Sea part is idiotic. It then gets much, much worse with the sequence with the airplane. First, it's impossible to get into the cabin of an airliner through he wheel well without a blow torch and a lot of time. Not to mention there is no extra room in there. The wheel goes up, you get crushed. So it's once of the stupidest movie memes ever. Second, avionics bays are nothing like shown. Third, there is no way to shut down engines from an avionics bay. Third, you can't "short out" turbine engines. And lastly, the whole, you have to glide thing was so totally wrong that it made me puke a bit. Seriously, you have a million to spend on every episode and you can't figure out how to use google to look up some very basic things about airplanes? Disgusting. This kind of stuff totally ruins the show. I can buy the whole tattoo thing even though it's impossible. I can buy memory whipping drugs even though it's also impossible. But don't be stupid. Real stuff is real and you need to at least come close to getting it right.
