Avenue 5: Was It Your Ears?
March 17, 2020 5:16 AM - Season 1, Episode 6 - Subscribe

As Avenue 5 celebrates the birth of a space baby, Ryan and Billie try to identify the source of an incessant beeping, and Judd shares his latest grand idea at Karen's passenger-crew liaison meeting. In the nation's capital, Rav appeals to the President for rescue funds but, in exchange, is faced with an ethical dilemma.

Avenue 5 lets the peril pile up, though murder is on the horizon (Liz Shannon Miller for TV/AV Club; rating: B-)
This week, Avenue 5 really embraced its existence as a very, very slow-motion space-set disaster tale — so slow-motion, in fact, that at least one threat still remains very real on the horizon.

Much of “Was It Your Ears?” is concerned about the emergence of a low, ominous beep rattling through the ship, much like the one you might hear from a smoke detector whose batteries are dying. In this case, engineers first end up assuming that what initially is assumed to be evidence of an oxygen leak which will leave the passengers of this futuristic spaceship dead in about nine months.
