  1. Poor planning on the part of producers…lucky nothing tragic occurred. No one should drive at night first time on that highway at those high speeds, the fact the car was small, convertible and had no lights was just more stupidity.

  2. Putting women over 60 in bunk beds was very inconsiderate! What was the producers thinking🤦‍♀️
