Threading the needle & going bananas – The Platform Ep.9

Gale force winds arrive just as the crew is about to lower a docking assembly onto the seabed – a precision operation akin to threading a needle. Then, the crew is rattled when a sensor indicates that a deadly gas has been released. A roller system called a ‘banana’ must be suspended high above the drilling floor, and assistant driller Aleksandr rises to the task, despite the usual squabbling with the foreign contractors.  After a stressful day, the crew relaxes with a sauna and World of Tanks.
