I think that the idea of actually going in to space was a little too SCI-FI, yet unusual and exciting!
I like it on the same time as I don't like it.
It gave the episode that little extra, as well as some unrealistic feeling.
I like how Walter AKA Iron Belly, threw up in the plane!
As for the murder, it like how they reallt twisted things up and made it hard to guess who the killer was or if it was an accident. I hadn't expected the pilot to be the shooter, I got a feeling that maybe it was the movie-star, but I was wrong.
