    Summary

    “Cabin Pressure” started airing in July 2008, towards the end of a year-long process of economic implosion that we now refer to as the Global Financial Crisis (or Collapse, or Crash). And whether Finnemore was thinking about this at all or not, to me it seems as if the whole show is an exploration of life after prosperity, with special reference to the problem of achieving masculinity in a world where not only affluence but even financial stability are out of reach for an increasingly huge number of people. Over the course of its four seasons is goes from being a wickedly funny exposition of the reality of precarity–the condition in which 99% of the world population finds itself in the aftermath of the GFC–to a fantasy about escaping from it. And although all the characters are involved in this story, the protagonist–and the one who comes closest, in the end, to leaving precarity behind–is Martin Crieff.

    She found Loki curled up in a corner of her garden, his knees pulled to his chest and streaks on his face from tears when he looked up at her. “I’m never going to be like Thor, am I?” he said, and started to cry.
