…Yeah, we realise how that looks. Let the record show- Going Down is a strictly platonic show.
See, you can only fit so many things within your average two by four metre moving box. A bad boy like that can squeeze in a good sized group- we’ll say seven, maybe eight people. The odd petty power struggle, for sure. A bit of room for some weirdly consistent references to diuretics. And some straight up murder. That’s just good business. But sexual innuendo? Fuggedaboutit!
Take all of that and you’ve got Going Down, a very not serious drama which has a real disregard for keeping the British lexicon consistent. (The word ‘lift’ simply has zero gravitas and we will not be apologising for that at this time). When a group of strangers find themselves shut in an elevator for the foreseeable future, they must navigate the trials of survival, power play and how many times you can ask someone to turn down their phone volume before you look like the unreasonable one.
It’s the kind of situation that can only end well!
For at least one whole person!
