Unfortunately, the new Twilight Zone's 'Nightmare at 30,000 Feet' misses the mark.
1 / 7
The episode casts Adam Scott as a xenophobic, sexist jerk.
2 / 7
The story was originally about compassion, understanding and mental health issues.
3 / 7
But Scott's character is an unlikable bigot, changing the entire message of the episode.
4 / 7
This approach goes against the ethos of Richard Matheson's original story.
5 / 7
Trading compassion for an angry, unlikable lead reduces the story to a trite parable for our time.
