Seriously, is everybody gonna stay this stupid?
Is every person the daughter runs into on the street gonna be a sexual predator? I did kinda like the slutty hot woman terrorist who blew up the plane, but the way the rest of the bunch acted when the girlfriend hid the ID card was idiotic. Of course girlfriend knew they couldn’t shoot her because she hid the ID, but why didn’t they put a gun to the head of slutty hot plane blower upper chick and explain how card hider would need a new girlfriend in one minute?
Jack orders the hacker chick to cut off access to the suspected Nina? Even though she’s apparently been dirty for years, so what new could she betray now, except possibly run out once she finds her access cut off? Except she wasn’t dirty (well, not from anything I know yet) because Jack didn’t stop to think that somebody else might have sat down at her desk at some time and used her computer?
I suppose the daughter is the dumbest. And I 'spose we’re supposed to forgive her for her youth. Calls mom instead of dialing 911. Running away, they run right past the airport tower, which would have phones, and into the arms of the den of vipers that apparently occupies every airport. Wants her kidnappers to go back and get her friend who was hit by a car trying to escape – WTF, she can’t imagine they’ll get her medical treatment? How can she not figure out the best chance for both of them to stay alive is if friend stays out on the street until someone calls cops or an ambulance.
One other question I have, which I think is program dumbness but I don’t know enough about drugs to be sure. Daughter’s friend is slipped a rufie at some point in the first hour, then is shot up with (presumably) heroin in the second (or maybe early in the 3rd), but is running pretty capably and appearing almost sober half way into episode 3. Given they make such a big deal about the “real time” nature of the program, she seems to have been on a very short trip. How plausible is this?
Even with all the dumbassedness, I have to admit I kinda like it.
