Interesting how the show can take a premise from a fictional movie, and analyze elements that COULD be real. However, wouldn’t it be more effective to look at actual security threats? Maybe one that pertains to China, because that would be more significant for the audience. Like, a Vehicle-born Improvised Explosive Device (VBIED) running into a public area with heavy foot-traffic like 天安門(TianAnMen)? Not recent enough? How about outbreaks of violence said to be from independence fighters?
Oh. Sorry. I guess that’s too real. It’s like how Stephen Colbert describes books: “Too much fact, not enough heart.” Can’t have that now, can we?
