The Hijacking of Flight 601 2024 / A hijacking drama that creates anxiety by curing it


The show creates anxiety in many different ways: in what’s to come, in blatant foreshadowing, and in awkward character dynamics. Alongside this constant tension, it provides humorous release in unexpected places, functioning like a pill before a flight. It gets so much mileage out of seemingly so little—namely the push and pull of the negotiation storyline, as well as the push and pull of the dynamic pool of bumbling and brave archetypes we have on this flight. At its best, it has the potential to be the most intense thing in the world; and at worst, you develop a phobia.
