| For a flight coming from South Africa... I was surprised that only 1 or 2 of them were black. |
In historic terms it hasn't been that
long since apartheid was finally eliminated. I suspect that even in today's South Africa the vast majority of people with the time, money and either personal or business reasons for a trip to the United States are white.
Andrea never did much for me, either. (Well, as a character
. Tyler was certainly very nice to look
) She did very little beyond filling the standard sidekick role of advancing the plot by asking the main character questions and letting the main character explain things without talking to him/herself. The problem is they also had the husband who can do that. If they've decided that the husband doesn't need
a dramatic life and death job of his own to "add" to the show, I can see where they might want to lose Andrea and have him quit his job to work with Melinda.
I wasn't as disappointed as some with the Man in Black. It was menancing enough when he succeeded with some
of the victims of the plane crash - and when they all suddenly dropped "down" when he led them away. Pretty obvious who and what he is (or at least who he works for), and where the souls he grabs are heading. That's menancing. Doubly so when he shows up behind Andrea in the closing moment of the show. Is he about to renew his trade offer to Melinda? One for one this time?
